I am not sure what is going on here.
I keep crashing ATLAS tasks.
They run a time of 2+ days and slow down at the end to .10% of a CPU max according to BoincTasks and they show a 99.99999% completion.

A question before I post the log. Does OC speed affect the way ATLAS performs? I am running 3.975 GHZ. Rosetta is stable at this speed, BOINC Mgr is stable at this speed, but my ATLAS apps keep crashing or stalling.

Dropped down another small notch to 3.950 GHZ now and am on a new task. VB is clean and now updated.

Here is the log before I aborted the task:

Notes:

Another VirtualBox management application has locked the session for
this VM. BOINC cannot properly monitor this VM
and so this job will be aborted.

NOTE: VM session lock error encountered.
BOINC will be notified that it needs to clean up the environment.
This might be a temporary problem and so this job will be rescheduled for another time.

1) Got rid of app_config.xml. Same thing can be accomplished via webpage.
2) Updated Vbox. Previous updates had caused problems.

Now for a challenge after it ran 4 tasks on 4 cores and completed ok.
Now keeping the 4 core restriction in place and upping the tasks queue to unlimited.
See how that works for time with all my other projects.
