2 days ago I'v stopped the download of new LHC tasks. The last remaining (SixTrack) task is now running for about 14h, instead of 7, and while the progress is 100.000%, and estimated time left on 00:00:00 since round 12h, the task is still active..... I'v tryied to close the app, I'v shut down the computer cold and warm, the task is still running on and on and on. Will there be an end of the calculation ?


This morning after a crash of the system (during my bath visit) the same SixTrack task appears with progress 000.000% and estimated time left of 45min. Before the crash, progress was 100.000%, remaining time was 00:00:00 since about 15h, and pased time was over 17h (on the screen! In reality the computing time was about 2 days!!!). Something is not working like it should.
I have 2 screenshots, but I don't know how to put them in here......

3) Questions and Answers : Preferences : Stoping delivery of new tasks don't work in LHC@home and Seti@home (Message 35466)

Hi there. I saw some tasks (LHC)) expires in few days. So I stoped all SETI's and choose 'stop delivery of new tasks' on them. But it do's'nt work: every time BOINC start to work, a new SETI task appears. Than I'v stop it. As soon BOINC start to work again, a new task appears. So I'v stoped the whole project. Now I'v choosed all LHC's which are'nt urgent, and stop them. Than I select also 'stop new tasks' for the project, but the same thing happens: Right after BOINC starts, and there are less then 4 tasks active, a new one appears in the list. When I stop it, after BOINC continue to work the next one appears.... a.s.o. To me it's looks like the 'stop new tasks' menu item in BOINC manager do's'nt work realy !!!

Finished tasks yes but upload fails allways.

Since last night, uploads of finished tasks get stuck in "backoff" Status.
Any problem with the ATLAS upload server?


Same problem since few days. The upload speed and the progres bar stays on 0.000%(KB) only the upload time is running but stops after few minutes and a message apears 'restarting in ....'. (Mostly over 4h !)
One Simulation do this since 2 days and in the 'Active tasks' window is 'upload in progres' even in case of 0 progres!

Hi everybody out there. I'm absolutely beginer on LHC@home. I'v started about 1 month ago. After recieving the message "VB not installed" i did it, with extension. I didn't configured anything.(Must i?) Now nearly all Atlas Simulations reports "Berechnungsfehler" = computingfailture. Is it a failture of my machine or is it a failture in the script of the WU ? I'm running BOINC on 3 of 4 cores and adjust few times the amount of memory and disc space use so i don't need to pause while working with other software.
Funny is also that after this failture the "progress" is on "100.000%". Most simulations are running not more then 20sec. Only 1 was more than 3h "on the run".
Can somebody tell me what to do, if necessary?
(sorry about my english!)
