Message 25783 - Posted: 6 Sep 2013, 17:15:59 UTC

All tasks with the new SixTrack 446.03 are erroring out on my PC, I checked and I saw they're crashing also on some other users, but not for all:
http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/workunit.php?wuid=9028119
http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/workunit.php?wuid=9032177
http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/workunit.php?wuid=9112361

The error is "-226 (0xffffffffffffff1e) ERR_TOO_MANY_EXITS"

Already tried to reset LHC project in Boinc... what's going on? (other Bpoinc projects are working fine on my machine)

Thanks for the feedback. I am at home now so it would
be good if you could just tell me whi Linux you are running.
I found your AMD description. Thanks. Eric.

I've noticed this for a couple of days. Task error logs (stderr.txt) are filling with "... No heartbeat from client for 30 sec - exiting" and end with "Compute error" (-226 (0xffffffffffffff1e) ERR_TOO_MANY_EXITS). Resetting project had no effect.

Unpacked one of the failing tasks .zip file into separate directory and ran sixtrack there - .fort files are being updated and growing, it hasn't crashed yet.


Linux: Linux 3.9.6-gentoo-Intel-Core-i7 #1 SMP Thu Jun 20 21:48:50 EEST 2013 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

BOINC: 7.2.0 (x64)
SixTrack: 446.03 (pni)
sixtrack_lin64_4463_pni.exe (in projects dir)
'file' reports it as "sixtrack_lin64_4463_pni.exe: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, not stripped", guess it isn't really a 64-bit app?

Had a look at my tasks:
Inclonclusive (1):
http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/workunit.php?wuid=9018280
Error (306):
first one: http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/workunit.php?wuid=8972676
Also, some tasks seem to be OK:
http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/workunit.php?wuid=9086803

All tasks in "Error" list belong to SixTrack v446.03 (pni)

Yep. That is the same problem as discussed in this thread:
http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/forum_thread.php?id=3767

The errors and error messages described here are the same

Update: in standalone mode, sixtrack completed in ~6h as expected.

Communication problem(s) between sixtrack and boinc_client, something wrong in init_data.xml?

I think that's a good point... the executable seems to be a 32bit one, not 64bit, and the 'statically linked' stuff makes me wonder if can be a library problem... maybe for those who have also 32bit libraries installed SixTrack works, for whose who have only 64bit libraries SixTrack crashes.

At least there's something wrong in the compiler, it outputs 32bit executables for 64bit systems.

I downgraded boinc-client from 7.2.7 to 7.0.27 (same version as second computer) and it seems to be ok

Just to be clear; all our executables are 32-bit. They run
on 64-bit systems OK. (In theory a 64-bit executable should be
numerically compatible. However. this is not likely to be the case
in practice. I will look at this one day, but right now need to sort out
the problems with our Linux executable.)
Thanks for all the feedback. Eric.

FYI...

Running Windows 7 (x64), BOINC 7.0.64 (x64), SixTrack 446.03.

No problems... yet.

Tried making sure any of the 32-bit libraries that could help were installed on one of my Ubuntu boxes. It didn't help.

Both of the Ubuntu 12.04 boxes get the failed WU's right away. They are running BOINC 7.0.65.

These also have the most cores, so I'm just trying to run LHC on my Windows boxes for now...

Our executables are all statically linked; should be NO dependence on
libraries. They do depend on system calls though, and the BOINC lib,
api lib and fortran api. Working hard on fixing this.

No problem running LHC on my Linux box, but my BOINC client is good old 6.10.58.

I had a system crash while running SuSE Linux 12.3 and went back to SuSE Linux 12.1. My CPU is Opteron 1210 at 1.8 GHz. I made a full check on CPU, RAM memory and disks using the 1.8 version of diagnostic tools supplied by SUN when I acquired the SUN workstation in 2008. All seem OK.
