Boinc 7.16.1 used for only native Theory and native Atlas.
File output.tgz is not deleted in slot-folder.
So is the slot number for every new task (Atlas or Theory) with a greater number growing.
Limit is 100.
VM-OS is CentOS 7.

Message 43375 - Posted: 20 Sep 2020, 9:56:43 UTC - in response to Message 43371.  

I checked my machine yesterday and today and don't see this (CentOS7 kernel 3.10.0-1127.19.1.el7.x86_64 running CMS and Theory Native via BOINC 7.16.6 from EPEL running as a daemon).

File output.tgz (Theory) is not deleted in slot-folder.
Are all the upload transfers succeeding (boinccmd --get_file_transfers)?

WCG always delete the slot-folder complete and start a new task in the same folder, when free.

Not sure whether your problem is BOINC version related, but

Linux x64
BOINC v7.16.6 Development version
(MAY BE UNSTABLE - USE ONLY FOR TESTING)

(boinccmd --get_file_transfers) how is it possible to use?
Type
boinccmd --get_file_transfers
at the command line, while in a directory with a copy of the client's gui_rpc_auth.cfg file in it.
(Message options from Boinc?)
I wouldn't know - I don't use the GUI stuff.

Doesn't look like there are any stuck transfers, so must be something else wrong.

This Version is included in CentOS77.
I wasn't aware they'd added it to CentOS itself, but then I haven't built a CentOS 7 machine from scratch in a while. I use the current version from EPEL (7.16.6-3):

~ > rpm -qi boinc-client
Name        : boinc-client
Version     : 7.16.6
Release     : 3.el7
Source RPM  : boinc-client-7.16.6-3.el7.src.rpm
Packager    : Fedora Project

Now only the sherpa 2.2.4 from saturday is running in this VM,
all other are WCG since two days, NO PROBLEMS with slot Number so long.
Ok, thank you Henry for the Fedora-EPEL entry.

Windows have 7.16.7 or 7.16.11 now, maybe Linux find a solution for 7.16.6 (developing Version) on Cern-IT side.
