1) Message boards : News : Warning: possible shortage of CMS jobs - set No New Tasks as a precaution (Message 38409)
Posted 24 Mar 2019 by Profile Bill F
Post:
At the moment I don't know whether the submission has failed or whether the monitor hasn't picked up the new batches. As a precaution, set No New Tasks on your CMS project(s) to avoid tasks crashing due to lack of jobs. I'll let you know as soon as I'm sure jobs are available again.

There are a lot of aborted jobs and several failed jobs too.

Are they resubmitted normally?

Yes, I believe so. As far as I recall, each job gets three picks at the cherry.

Why would not having any new work cause a Job to crash ? Two different parts of work order processing.

Thanks

I have re-enabled ATLAS as a project on LHC to run some of these WU's and every one so far as failed. When I looked at one of the WU's I noticed that it had been assigned to three different systems and failed on all three ?

wuid=102285314

Does a bad batch of WU's ever get generated ?

Thanks

Post:
BOINC 7.8.6 for Mac OS is now available on the primary BOINC Download Site:

https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php

From Charlie Fenton ...

This is a release for Macintosh only; there are no changes from 7.8.3, 7.8.4 or 7.8.5 affecting the code for any other platform. It fixes a couple of Mac-only bugs in 7.8.5:
* Reliably installs the BOINC screensaver (unless asked not to do so.)
* Fixes a bug which could prevent determining the correct size of RAM when run on versions of OS X older than OS 10.11.

It would be helpful to the project if old inactive hosts that will never be reattached to the project were deleted by the User.

How 'bout it folks do you have dead wood to delete? It won't effect your totals or points.

Hang in there and when work becomes available you may get a unit or two. We don't have work regularly only when it is available.

[And the very first time I looked at that page 1, it *also* looked good. But when I returned to page 1, it now looks ugly (no matter what I try).]

It looked good as it was using the old CSS (width=700, overflow=hidden) and when you looked again it reloaded the CSS and width=auto looks cack.

I have emailed the user to see can he just put spaces in between the img tags


On the Profile edit box it still does not open in the same format as the edit box used here in the message board. It is opening as a square and the right side of the profile to be edited is hidden.

Sorry only fixed the avatar box will try and get this sorted tomorrow
