This is why I did not like the BOINC implementation with timing for completing a task (for example for long prime testing tasks of other projects that needs 30 days to be achieved, I always complete a task in 45/50 days as the computer is used for working and not at 100% to Boinc).

It is good that BOINC resend a task to another client if it not receive the solution for a task that not return in time (as the client could be broken), but if the task then return, it must be credited as the solution is still good (even if it could be already arrived from the other client) as it will be a proof of algorithm correctness.

For this point I stress the service provider all the days that connection must be restore as soon as possible.

There is no maintenance instrument for changing what Boinc has processed, however I'm studing the Boinc DB to see if I can force users to receive credits for the work with a query.

Thanks

So, the electrical power was shout down for 3,5h on Sunday in all the municipal area and the very good news was that the UPS (that was supposed to function for one hour) lasted for all the time and it was not near to finish the power reserve.

UPS is for saving integrity of server when there is no power, not to support all the rest of network equipments.

However when the power was back there were not internet connection!

As the service provider repeater is located 200m of distance and there were no workers on it (so all was supposed to be good), I contacted them soon for the problem as even their networks devices where in the area of power off so the problem could be here and/or there.

As it was Sunday their replay were at the rate of one in an hour and they let me makes lot of test until say at night that they will send a specialized technician to solve it.

I pass all the followed days to solicit intervention because the situation was critical for ODLK1, but it was in vain: assistance with ten-year customers proved to be practically absent!

Really unacceptable for a supplier who should guarantee a service that is always active 24h/24h!

This has now been, today they have restored the connection (it seems that the electrical works have damaged many devices throughout the area of 1Km^2).

I apologize for the situation but even replace the current internet providers will takes at least 20 working days, so the only solution was to attend their intervention.

Thanks

Hi,

on 14/02/2021 from 8:30 to 12:30 (Rome time) there will be a switch off for current in my region.

Maybe the power supply will last for 1 hour, then the server will shut down until current return.

thanks

6) Message boards : Number crunching : Suddenly all WU's error out with timeout (Message 965)
Posted 15 Dec 2020 by ice00
Post:
hi,

the new tasks with new seeds seems to have increase the execution time during a workunit (so more solutions are tested), but on the other hand it rejected some WU in early stage (time out is in algorithm to avoid endless calculation).

In oldkmax we are testing new seeds 2, 16 and 39, in odlk3 seeds 67.
Now we are not adding other tasks from two days in odlmax to see that they will auto-generate itself from results.
Odlk3 has receive new WU the other week and we did not add more from that date.

At this stage you can only drop calculation of odlk3 WU by cancel them when downloaded if you see that they are still going in time out.

thanks

Sorry,
this is due to calibration of introducing more new WU in the system over the automatic generated.

It will require a week I think.

Being added new rule to explore over the 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, and 66.

It is rule 67.

1.000.000 of tasks is being added and this will takes some days to achieve, but actually this should already be enough to fill the actual users power.

Remember that when one a task is processed by a user, his result is evaluated and a new task is generated from this automatically to explore a sub tree if this is the case. Sub tree can so go ahead for many generations (this is why the other rules is being processed by over 3 years now).

hi,

Still working in increasing tasks generation.
Actually the generator pause only 3 minutes instead of 10 when it finished a generation of tasks.

hi,

I think this is due to a sudden increase in computation power of 1000GFlops over the average of the other days, so the queue goes empty but from log the server is still generating inputs.

Looking into Boinc source, it seems normal that that warning happens:

Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$has_picture in /home/boinc/projects/latinsquares/html/user/create_profile.php on line 56


As it performs:

if (profile_screening() && $profile->has_picture) {


This warning happen when $profile is null.

But it we look at the caller procedure, there is this comment:

// $profile is null if user doesn't already have a profile.
// Don't assign to $profile->x if this is the case.

so if a user has not already have a profile , the warning pop up (usually PHP warning has turnd off, so users did not see it)
