Message 45585 - Posted: 31 Oct 2021, 20:53:06 UTC

Not sure how to troubleshoot CMS task errors like this https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/result.php?resultid=331542649
which shows as 'Error while computing' in my task list.

I'm running BOINC Manager 7.16.19 and VirtualBox 6.1.28 on an Intel Mac Mini macOS 11.6.1
I think these errors started since I went from macOS 11.5.x to 11.6.x, but I have also been moving my BOINC Data folder to a different SSD (now back to its original SSD)

Message 45589 - Posted: 2 Nov 2021, 9:28:30 UTC - in response to Message 45585.  

This seems to be related to macOS 11.16.x

I came across this thread on Ask Different https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/408154/macos-big-sur-virtualbox-error-the-virtual-machine-has-terminated-unexpectedly-d with a similar 'VirtualBox Error the virtual machine has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1)' as I had experienced. I'm testing out the suggested solution (run csrutil, uninstall and reinstall VirtualBox) and it seems to be hopeful. My single CMS task has been running for 55mins where it was stopping after 10s before.

Just to report my CMS task https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/result.php?resultid=331660008 completed and validated.

Just saw this lines in your logfile:
2021-11-02 08:31:20 (2996): Guest Log: [DEBUG] Proxy 127.0.0.1:3128 is set by BOINC but can't be contacted
.
.
.
2021-11-02 08:31:35 (2996): Guest Log: [INFO] 2.7.2.0 http://s1cern-cvmfs.openhtc.io DIRECT

This happens if you forward the wrong IP from your BOINC client to the CMS VM.
127.a.b.c or "localhost" must not be used since it is not the same outside and inside a VM.
See here:
https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=5742&postid=45593
If your local name resolution correctly resolves name_of_your_proxy_box -> IP_of_your_proxy_box, use name_of_your_proxy_box in BOINC's proxy form.
You may instead use the local network IP of your proxy box, e.g. 192.168.f.g.

Thanks. I will change my BOINC manager proxy setting to the machine IP address as it is a fixed value assigned by my router.

And my recent tasks don't show that proxy error anymore.

The DEBUG message is only shown when there's a problem.
It's fine as long as the log looks like in this example:

Beside that a few thousand lines should be added to your proxy log within the first 20 minutes of a fresh task and when a running task gets a fresh subtask.

Message 45613 - Posted: 5 Nov 2021, 20:06:03 UTC

Today the computers made errors by computing CMS Tasks
I think that the origin of the problem desn't came from my computers but it is possible that the origin was CERN
I prepared my computers to avoid overload of the system
at the least control it showed a use of the processors of 100% but the use inside of the boinc manager is only 70% of processors
I will try to reduce the number of used processors inside of the boinc manager

I hope an incresed stability of the system

Sorry that i couldn't control further because i was very busy inside of my city

Sorry for desagrement

Best regards

Guy

I had some tasks fetched at around 09:00UTC 05Nov21 which failed with X509 errors - for example:

These ran for quite short times (200-300s).
but I have a task fetched at about 22:50UTC 05Nov21 which is still running now. I am hopeful the problem has been fixed.

This problem is caused by a crashed credential service at CERN.
Unfortunately it happens from time to time.
Volunteers can't do anything but to wait until that service is back again.

I'm getting a lot of computation errors for CMS vBox64 tasks on my Win10 host.
https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/results.php?hostid=10687301&offset=0&show_names=0&state=6&appid=

I'm not sure where to start in troubleshooting this. My other Linux based hosts are doing ok (aside from sporadic comms issues with my FW and SNORT).
I'm running BOINC client 7.16.11 with vBox 6.1.12. Below is the app_config file from my Win10 host and the output of one of the failed tasks below that.

Message 45621 - Posted: 6 Nov 2021, 17:37:04 UTC - in response to Message 45619.  

Some ideas:

Some of the logs show different vbox/BOINC versions.
Did you upgrade/downgrade something and forgot to reboot?

The global filename characters, * or ?, are entered incorrectly or too many global filename characters are specified.

Where is the BOINC directory located?
Does it lead to a too long expanded path name?

This CMS-Task was running successfull:

2021-11-02 11:39:46 (1556): Detected: VirtualBox VboxManage Interface (Version: 6.1.26)
Was there a change of Boinc or Virtualbox?

I did downgrade the BOINC and vBox versions while attempting to troubleshoot the runaway task downloads I was encountering. I found, through the Rosetta@home forum, that BOINC has issues with calculating task queue depth with the <max_concurrent> or <project_max_concurrent> flags in project app_config files. I thought it could have been the upgrade of BOINC and vBox I did a while back, so I downgraded them. I've also removed those settings from my Win10 host app_config.

I have rebooted since then and just now had my client upload more failed results to LHC@home. This task is one of the ones that failed just in the last 15-20 minutes.
https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/result.php?result_name=CMS_3108593_1635827713.939210_0
I've also restricted the project from getting new tasks for the time being until I can get this fixed.

The main BOINC directory is at
C:\Program Files\BOINC
with the data being at
C:\ProgramData\BOINC


Virtual box is at
C:\Users\Scott\.VirtualBox


Looking into the vBox logs, I do see that it's pointing out the differing versions and lack of permissions to the vm storage. Could it not have liked the software downgrade? I'll download the current versions again and reinstall them.

When you downgrade, be sure to reboot after installation. What's about your extensionpack of Virtualbox?
You can deinstall Virtualbox and reboot your Windows. After this you can install a clean Installation of Virtualbox.
When the trouble is always, on Boinc-homepage is a combination of Boinc/Virtualbox for Installation.
From this point you can do a upgrade of Boinc and/or Virtualbox.

I removed vBox 6.1.12, rebooted, reinstalled 6.1.12 and the issue persists. Since the vBox logs still show notices for a version difference from 6.1.12 and 6.1.16, I uninstalled 6.1.12 and installed 6.1.16. Rebooting and ensuring all the system files were gone.

I do not have any extension packs configured for use. Do I need to configure that? I've previously read that the vBox extension pack was not needed. Is that incorrect?

I'm waiting for a few tasks to download to see if the issue persists in the vBox logs. If so, I'll open a new thread under the Windows board.

Yes you need to install the extensionpack from your installed Virtualbox-Version or higher.

well, you don't need to install the extension pack necessarily. Virtual Box also runs without the extension pack. However, the extension pack gives you the chance to "look inside" a VM task while running, thus giving you some more information.
There is no need to configure the extension pack. Just install it. From then on, in the BOINC manager, on the left hand side, the button "show VM console" is no longer greyed out, and you can click on it.
Once opened, with the keys F1, F2 and F3 you can retrieve various information about the running task. What exactly you see, varies between the sub-tasks. So in ATLAS you see different things than in Theory and in CMS. Find out yourself, it's pretty interesting and informative.
