After deleting many really old results from 2013 until March 2017 (was meant to
be December 2016) it seems many Tasks have been aborted. A full analysis
and report will be posted. No action required by volunteers. Eric.

Apologies all round; it was MY fault. My MySQL query was missing
and AND clause on server_state=5... Sorry about that. Eric.

Were the work units recycled back into the too be distributed stack for reassignment ?

Message 31609 - Posted: 24 Jul 2017, 22:30:39 UTC

I encountered an other problem by crunching LHC@home:
Some WU with more CPU stoped after around 10 minutes. The messages where:
-waiting for memory
-reported:waiting for hyperwisor....

So i abandonned this files because they couldn't be runned until the end like other WU
I had regulary such problem or similar when i was crunching by LHC@home
I had six track or atlas simulation
Every atlas simulations failed

I have been getting that message more than more, and not just from LHC@Home. Simply let it go, and eventually the BOINC scheduler will run the job.

I saw one of my LHC@Home jobs get aborted, I never knew projects could do this remotely.

I gived the answer upon the observation on my screen not to bring the world to worry but to help the engineer to understand the origin of the problem.
A little peace and love in this world and avoid to scratch the hair of the other one. Usually the enginneer don't have to much hair on the head because the have enough problem to solve each day. Sometimes they are using her own head to be quiet if you understand what i mean!

Best Regards

I had the same problems, it would come and go but eventually became very severe affecting 100% of the LHC tasks. I resolved my issues by modifying the "Disk and memory" settings under "Computing preferences" in BOINC. I increased the "Use no more than x GB" value and decreased the "Leave at least x GB free" value. My computer has worked perfectly since allowing additional resources for BONIC projects.

in the internal error treatment of the error must be noticed every parameter of the computing machines
-Software
-boinc version
-state of the register
-allocated memory
-unallowed operations
-state of the memory
-name of the WU
...
