Message 36797 - Posted: 21 Sep 2018, 4:58:26 UTC

I'm having this error in one of my hosts in many WUs as of late, but not all WUs, maybe since beginning of this week (after outage?), before everything seemed to go more or less OK. I'm crunching 6 WU, 8 cores each, the host has 96 GB RAM, Is lack of enough RAM?, it was running 8 WUs before OK. In other hosts I get also this error but in very few WUs

Any idea?.

Message 36799 - Posted: 21 Sep 2018, 7:49:00 UTC - in response to Message 36797.  

You are running Theory tasks on one host and ATLAS tasks on the other.

According to David Cameron in https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=4178&postid=29560#29560 the RAM formula for ATLAS VBox tasks is: 3 GB + 0.9 GB * ncores.
For 6 X 8 core tasks: 6 * ( 3 + 0.9 * 8) = 61.2 GB
For 8 X 8 core tasks: 8 * ( 3 + 0.9 * 8) = 81.6 GB

According to Crystal Pellet in https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=4790&postid=36791#36791 the RAM formula for Theory tasks is: 630 MB + 100 MB * ncores
For 6 X 8 core tasks: 6 * ( 630 + 100 * 8) = 8580 MB = 8.4 GB

So you have enough RAM. Most likely it's the recent outage.

Yes, that calculations is what I made but errors occurred, randomly apparently but constantly.

Analyzing in VirtualBox the data of the VMs I find two different sizes for the VMs base memory: 5000Mb and 10200Mb. The later are the ones failing. I reduced to 5 WUs per host and no error so far.

I do not see any difference in the WU name construction that allow identifying them and I can not say it is not something in my end.
