1) Message boards : Number crunching : Very long job (Message 43605)
Posted 14 Nov 2020 by Matthias Lehmkuhl
looks like I have to a very long runner too
So far I see a CPU time of 7d 18h at 74,6% -> estimated time to go 02d 09 h with a deadline of 15.11.2020 05:58 CET visible at the Client
Progress is growing slowly and CPU usage for the task is at 100%

Is it possible to extend the deadline for the result which is now 16.11.2020, 4:58:17 UTC
Or should I cancel the result when the server deadline is over
2) Message boards : ATLAS application : Very slow task download (Message 35725)
Posted 1 Jul 2018 by Matthias Lehmkuhl
count me in, the download stuck sometimes on very different percentage progress (mostly 80 to 90 % progress of the download)
LHC@home LeiNDmPLhtsnyYickojUe11pABFKDmABFKDmLNIMDmABFKDmsJuyan_EVNT.14296450._001903.pool.root.1 1,054 314106,06 K 00:22:22 2,53 Kbps Herunterladend
yesterday I've seen that the download runs with normal speed after restarting the boinc client.
My problem is, that other projects do not download on that windows machine (Boinc 7.10.2) too as long as the download of the Atlas task has not finished.
Will try to increase the buffer.

From my side also,
my is the "Fertig, als ung├╝ltig markiert" SixTrack v443.07
The result was resend 2 times with SixTrack v444.01
Looks like both SixTrack Versions create different results, so the validator can't compare them.
one more samples

found also some package canceled

Would be good to check this. (After the Weekend) ;-)

Posted 15 Mar 2010 by Matthias Lehmkuhl
I\\\\\\\'m sorry about graphics problem; I have given priority to
getting a Linux executable and getting these very very long
beam to beam jobs working. I should also look at how
you could restart. I guess BOINC kills the work unit agter
this problem, but actually I have checkpoint/restart files
which mean it could just be restarted...........

Hi bicmac,
there will no checkpointint/restart of the result, due to the graphic program is in the computing program.
When one of both will crash, the result is lost.
This also happens, when the Boinc screensaver with LHC is activated.
The other projects with screensaver made a second program that only shows the sreensaver based on the data of the calculating program. If the screensaver does not work, the calculating program continues without error/crash.

Please consider to remove/deactivate the graphic part of the LHC program, then the problem is resolved.
I don\\\'t use the the Boinc Screensaver, but love the LHC graphic.

Posted 15 Mar 2010 by Matthias Lehmkuhl
Hello, dear friends!
Once LHC task(s) is (are) downloaded, the tasks from one of other BOINC projects begin Running in high priority and blocking LHC. That one of other is always the project with shortest deadline. But I was shocked, when a host, usualy running CPDN only, captured LHC tasks, and CPDN tasks began Running in high priority. This is absurdity!
1. No matter:
- how big are LHC tasks (for 20 minutes or 20 hours);
- what is Resource share between projects;
- which value is set for Additional work buffer or how much tasks have other projects.
2. It is important, which version of BOINC is installed:
- this effect appears, when BOINC manager is 6.6 or higher;
- there is no problems, when manager is 6.2 or lower.
P.S. This situation is never seen before...

This is a new feature in Boinc 6.6 maybe also in 6.5
Now not the result with the first deadline will calculated, but in Boinc 6.6 the result with the most time problems
is calculated first.
Had this seen on my Boinc also, after a short time all goes back to normal work.

Posted 15 Mar 2010 by Matthias Lehmkuhl
I hope so; I doubled the time limit. Eric.
(Note also that if interrupted I have a checkpoint/restart
so that we do not lose everything, but restart from evry thousand turns i.e evry two minutes roughly.

Could finish both results, CPU Time less than one day.
80000 and 57000 seconds.

And yes, here checkpointing works fine.

Posted 12 Mar 2010 by Matthias Lehmkuhl
OK we think we have a solution and it should go online once we have tested it.

Sadly it involves stripping out the graphics but this is a stop gap as the scientists want to get their work done and bigmac is on holidays as of today.

Once he is back graphics will become something for him to investigate.

I will keep you updated.

Hi Nesan,
Any new status?
By now there is no new application.

Got also two of this long runners, if it goes too 100%
2 hours runtime at 5.8%

2 hours runtime at 4.6%

Any chance, that the results will finish in time?

I've got two results too, the Server tells me I've got them, but i can't find them on my machine. No entry in BoincLogX too.
