1) Message boards : Number crunching : Web site is VERY SLOW to load & CANNOT UPLOAD completed work (Message 4602)
Posted 18 Sep 2018 by Dr Who Fan
For past 30 to 40 minutes Web site has been VERY SLOW to load or unreachable.
Also having problems UPLOAD completed work - keep getting error/back-off messages.

Seems a bit better suddenly as I am typing but web site is still sluggish to respond.

UPDATE >> Appears the problems I am having are related to Universe@home corrupting ALL BOINC projects for some reason...

Did a RESET on BOTH SR5 & Universe with tasks still failing. Uninstalled & reinstalled the two projects with same results. Finally suspended & set No New Work for Universe & everything started working fine again on SR5.

Had 2 in a ROW now that FAILED the same way... but the stderr rpt says "application BHspin2 missing"

4) Message boards : Number crunching : Slot directory error (Message 2475)
Posted 12 Apr 2016 by Dr Who Fan
[error] exceeded limit of 1800 slot directories


This is MOST LIKELY a BOINC error not a SRBase project error.

I believe you will find a solution here:
https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=10560&postid=64881
If possible update to a later BOINC version. 7.6.11 has a fix:
client: fix a bug introduced in commit [44c82be] which prevented the re-use of empty slots.
This bug affects only Mac / Linux / UNIX builds. It does not affect Windows.
5) Message boards : Number crunching : Problem with Riesel Base Short on Dual-Xeon (Message 1657)
Posted 14 Jul 2015 by Dr Who Fan
This problem sounds a bit similar to what they have been discussing over at SETI and Milkyway in the Number Crunching forums. SETI is down for it's usual weekly maintenance but I found the topic at Milkyway.

Richard Haselgrove posted this at Milkyway > Message 63799 in Message boards : Number crunching : What is the cause of these 'validate errors' <

"After intensive work with Keith Myers and others (mainly in the SETI message board thread Stderr Truncations), I think I've finally traced and recorded the full life-cycle of these little beasties.

The easiest starting point is the debris left behind."
6) Message boards : Number crunching : Scheduler request failed: HTTP file not found (Message 1609)
Posted 29 Jun 2015 by Dr Who Fan
Hmm, perhaps you have reached the max WUs in progress and the limit of your connections (upload/download). Also if you only running small WUs (7-12s) the server cannot send out enough WUs per RPC request.


Error message still showing up on just about every work request in BOINC log. Last one about 10 minutes ago.
My settings for Host ID 102 are Minimum Work Buffer: 0.05 / Additional Work Buffer: 0.00.

Task settings:
    Sierpinski / Riesel Base: yes
    Riesel Base: no
    Sierpinski Base: no
    Sierpinski / Riesel Base - short: yes
    Sierpinski / Riesel Base - long: no
    Sierpinski / Riesel Base - average: yes
    Riesel Base - short: yes
    Sierpinski Base - short: yes
    Sierpinski / Riesel Base - average2: no
    Sierpinski / Riesel Base - average3: no



When work buffer is just about empty it usually receives 2 or 3 tasks.
One of the two cores and the GPU are currently running a task from another project.

No problems with my internet connection.

9) Message boards : Number crunching : Work available?? (Message 427)
Posted 2 Jan 2015 by Dr Who Fan
What happens is that when work dries up, people don't detach or set NNT - they just open up other projects and wait patiently for work to magically appear. This is what the majority of people do - set and leave.

Exactly.

Anyway, it's clear that people are content with the way Reb is running HIS project because every batch sells out.
... but I'm just happy to have another project to run however Reb wants to run it.


A BIG THANK YOU goes out to Reb for a very smooth running run project
--- and the---
"cliff notes" he posts for us all to follow along with the progress!
