1) Message boards : Number crunching : finish file present too long (Message 1094)
Posted 13 Mar 2015 by tgoti
I have to come back to this issue once more. And yes it is maybe an issue in BOINC but it is probably also related to the provided data.

It does switch a little bit through my systems, but it does most of the time happen on the AVX systems after 6 hours. (So most of my systems do not do this work anymore.)

In addition it does so far only affect tasks that are "Sierpinski / Riesel Base - average v0.01" or "Sierpinski / Riesel Base - long v0.01".

The most bothering about this is:

(a) It does take very long for those tasks to get the status error. You can notice that the first 95% are done fast and then it does take forever to either complete sucessful or to error out.

(b) Under Linux you can notice a similar thing. The "Sierpinski / Riesel Base - average v0.01" tasks are finished after about 1 hour (100%) but then they do need another 11 hours of work to be really finished and reported. So far under Linux those tasks are not flagged as an error.

I have the feeling that there is a bug in the application that does cause unneeded work cycles. Or if it is working correctly the Progress bar is totally off.

Since yesterday, I do have quite a few computation errors.

The all have "finish file present too long" which is really bothersome since some of those took more than 6 hours of computation time. The all have in common that at the End (100%) the do go on "Verdrängt" and then when they are started again they do get the computation error.

You should look into this issue.

I have the issue with Tasks for
and even two of the small ones R3_340_360
