Message 24053 - Posted: 4 Jul 2012, 12:05:36 UTC

An exciting day; a new particle and maybe even the Higgs boson itself.

We have been busy preparing new executables for BOINC, including a MAC
executable.

Sadly we have run out of disk space and there are likely to be some hiccups
for the next few hours, hopefully not longer. We have three new executables for
both Windows and Linux: run anywhere, use SSE2, use SSE3. The run anywhere is
slow but every little helps. The executable for MAC requires at least SSE3 I
believe and the exact requirements are not well understood as I write.
I am currently running tests on as many types of hardware as I can.

The disk full situation can cause havoc and certainly explains why you have
not been able to get more work for the last hours.
More news as soon as we make some progress.

Thanks for your continued support which will to make an even better
LHC for 2015. Eric.

Something has gone seriously wrong. I, and a number of others, are unable to get new Tasks. It may be related to running Windows 7 x64.

I've tried everything. I've suspended my other Projects and then Updated only LHC but even that doesn't get new Tasks. It's clear from comments by others that they can get new Tasks but there have been a number of postings where nothing gets sent.

I guess it will be Monday at the earliest when someone at CERN looks into this. Wonder if there is a way for any of the moderators to send a PM? Seems a shame to wait all weekend...

I sent a direct message to Eric but have heard nothing in return.

......It may be related to running Windows 7 x64.


i don't think so.
my i7 running Win 7 x64, get tasks
my i5 running Win 7 x64, get no tasks
my other get also no tasks

they wrote about a disk full situation....

But you would think that if it is a disk full situation it would not serve Tasks to anybody.

Message 24116 - Posted: 7 Jul 2012, 15:43:00 UTC

Seem to have a lot of problems right now.
I see three main issues.
1) Volunters do not seem to get work on Windows (7?).
I actualy suffered myself but started getting new
tasks around 05:15 GMT today.
2) Performance and the use of the three different
executables seems to be not working correctly.
3) The MAC executable appears to lack portability
in some as yet unknown way.

I'll try and update the Threads on the Message Boards on
Monday after examining logs and messages with my colleaues.

I also want to finally publish my paper on numeric portability
but first I also ned to check all rejected results which
I believe must be due to over-clocked CPUs or other hardware
failures. Eric.

Hi om; I am a very worried man indeed. I am not a sys admin
though (although I have been in my earlier life) and indeed I
hope we can make progress on Monday. Eric.
P.S. I did start getting work this morning on one of
my PCs a Windows 7 64-bit Intel............maybe Igor
did something. The disk full issue is resolved.

I got some WUs on one machine this morning too.

And now the error message is different : it was "No task sent" before, and it changed to "No task available" which is normal since server status is showing no more WUs to send.

Also, validation seems a bit more complicated for this batch ... I'm seeing quite a lot of errors from my wingmen, so my WUs are not yet validated.

I got some WUs just a few minutes ago but I had to "pump" the system to get them. One thing I noticed on the new WUs, while the Elapsed time... is incrementing, the Remaining time... is also incrementing.

This is NOT the case on other Projects so it would not seem likely to be related to the version of BOINC (7.0.28) I'm running.

Windows 7 (x64), Intel i7-2600, 16GB RAM.

Thanks Eric, getting new wu's now.

The CPU capabilities recognition still acting out though. I updated on my Intel Q9400 Boinc version to 6.12.34 from 6.10.58 to see if that makes any difference but alas no. It's running Vista 32 bit and getting only the generic version of sixtrack.exe.

My i7 laptop on win 7 64 bit (Boinc 6.12.34) that used to get the sse3 application correctly is now getting the generic version of sixtrack.exe.

It appears some of the applications have been removed from the server, perhaps that was the cause of the previous problem. At least we are getting some work until the issue is resolved this coming week!
