I lost my Nvidia GPU (recognition) after the Windows 10 update. I have tried all the suggestions from Nvidia, updating drivers, etc to no avail. Any suggestions? I have a boatload of GPU wu to crunch.

Does the BOINC Manager Tools>Event log show them on start-up? Should be in the first 10 lines or so right after start-up.

Dr. Korpela indicated that he just may have found and fixed the Sunday unresponsive scheduler issue. Let's hope we're back to merely one weekly outage...

Well, looks like the "unscheduled" outage has struck again:
So it would seem.

Is 11oc19ab stuck in splitting the AP ?? it is at 9 channels done and 5 in progress. Just thought I'd document it in case it is a problem, or just in case posting about it fixes it.

5 more hours until we find out if the Sunday morning bug (or feature) is fixed.

Seems to be a problem on both the AP and MB sides of that one.

Post:
You have a lot of aborted WU with time limit exceed, that could cause the drop on the RAC since all the crunching time was wasted.


These systems once I setup, I leave at the DC and dont touch them. I didnt run any updates nor leave auto updates on.

Running Ubuntu 18.04 here. There is definitely something going on that intermittently causes those "timelimit exceeded" problems. I do see it from time to time, and a reboot solves the issue until it recurs. What I have seen is that before the first of them, I see a single WU that aborted with a compute error on the same GPU that then begins throwing "exceeded" errors. My suspicion is that something in the app or WU causes the driver for that GPU to explode, requiring a reboot to regain sanity. But I have no way to prove this. The other thing that may contribute, on NV at least, is borderline power to GPUs causing them to generate communications errors on the bus. NVs seem very susceptible to this. I just redid my power connections on the machine that was doing this most, and haven't seen further errors since. Getting some 8-pin CPU to GPU adapters really helped this as opposed to the 4-pin Molex splitters. I'm running power pig GTX980s, ymmv.

I remember thinking it was pretty hot when my total credit hit 250k.
Just busted through a 250k RAC with the conversion of a second cruncher from Win10 to Linux.
Pretty wild.

This is going to be a loooooooooong catch up period.
Looks a lot better now. Downloads stalls have mostly resolved. Still a ways to go to get full caches, maybe another hour.

I just got through to the scheduler (of course got no tasks available) but it is responding now so appears to be either resolved or in the process...

+1

They have added an Aricebo file (01oc19ac) to be split.
I think those add automatically when available.

All the pages are frozen at the time the servers went down.
I would have to disagree with the word "all", as the ready to send numbers keep incrementing, not from splitter activity but from timeout resends being added to the send queue. SSP looks realistic for the current situation.

On the bright side if over due tasks are been sent out as resends it means that we can shrink the database size a little

Timeout resends probably occur at a more or less constant rate regardless of other activity.


Next 20
