Seems like a lot of validate errors.

There was discussion at some point of having a BOINC option to run longer work units that were being issued to the other computer centers. I guess there were some issues uncovered and it was never pursued further, but it worked well for me. It seemed like an efficient way to run.

This said Condor exited after 11117 seconds without running a job.

The HTcondor update was around 1300 UTC, so it looks like you got caught across it. I'm not expert enough to speculate exactly what happened; I've been assured that any jobs caught up like that will be resubmitted, but it's a pity you didn't get credit for your CPU time.

No problem, thanks for the explanation!

Just curious, what happens if the CMS scientists have no tasks for us? Does the well run dry?
Thanks!

The Project Status Page Shows "0" for ATLAS (and some other projects as well).

What does this mean?

I see plenty of Atlas tasks now.

Just want to be sure this is normal SHERPA output:

    -- SHERPA generates events with the following structure --
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Perturbative : Signal_Processes
    Perturbative : Hard_Decays
    Perturbative : Jet_Evolution:CSS
    Perturbative : Lepton_FS_QED_Corrections:Photons
    Perturbative : Multiple_Interactions:Amisic
    Perturbative : Minimum_Bias:Off
    Hadronization : Beam_Remnants
    Hadronization : Hadronization:Ahadic

I'm optimistically hopeful that it will be fixed on Monday. Meanwhile, crunching other LHC projects, although today I was having problems with LHCb, so switched everything to Theory.

And if I received LHCb work randomly if there were no ATLAS work, my computers would freeze because the combined units require more memory than is available. So having a setting specifying which backup projects you want would work best. Thanks!

This was recently posted in the LHCb forum:

LHCb do not pre-select jobs to be sent to the community, you pick-up jobs from the same 'queue' as all other sites.


Will this ever be true for ATLAS? That would seem to minimize the risk of running out of tasks for BOINC.

Thanks!!

All my Atlas tasks validate on the Linux box even if not having the HITS file. All my Atlas tasks are invalidated on the Windows 10 PC despite it having a more modern AMD CPU and three times its RAM.

I find I need to run Atlas by itself. It did not do well when I was also running Einstein@home.

Posted 15 Mar 2017 by Profile rbpeake
How would I know if it hung or long task, I normally abort them if they are 1 day and 99%

From the initial post:
To know if you are running one of these tasks and that it's not a regular "longrunner" you can check the stderr.txt in the slots directory - if it shows "Starting ATLAS job. (PandaID=xxx taskID: taskID=10959636)" then you got one. The regular tasks have taskID=10947180.

Is the 4-core the most efficient of the various configurations? I have been assuming so for all of my work.

Thanks!

I think it's a great idea!

I am only getting work for my physical CPU's, not the hyperthreaded CPU's. Thus I am only able to run half the number of jobs that I did on Atlas@home. Is there a way to correct this so I can run all of my cores?

Play a little bit with Max_Number_of_Jobs

I switched Max_Number_of_Jobs from No-Limit to 10 and now I got 10 WUs

Yeti, where do I find that setting? Thanks!

...The default number of jobs to download if you have no limit is 1 per CPU.

It looks like no tasks are available at the moment.

Thanks.
