Re: Problems running multiple Rosetta tasks

Hi Tim, So Plenty of disc space, Rosetta mod recommended 1 gig per task + 10 so ~82 needed. Plenty of swap space (might run slower with > 64 gig memory needed but it'll still run) Plenty of work waiting. Sounds like the RAM is sufficient for 72 tasks at once if 60 - 65 tasks is only 30 gig. I'm stil...

Re: Problems running multiple Rosetta tasks

Hi Tim, I've already replied to him with a number of things to check, and I'm waiting to hear back from him. However, in my reply to him, I linked to my first post here, so he can read any comments made (as this section is "public") and maybe any other suggestions can be checked. So we have to stop ...

Re: Problems running multiple Rosetta tasks

It's easy to confuse BM :) Can he add options to cc_config.xml and report the results? <cc_config> log_flags> <mem_usage_debug>1</mem_usage_debug> <sched_op_debug>1</sched_op_debug> <slot_debug>1</slot_debug> <state_debug>1</state_debug> <task_debug>1</task_debug> </log_flags> </cc_config> I'm assum...

Re: Problems running multiple Rosetta tasks

The disc error message only appears when Boinc tries to start another task, it wouldn't show in the start up messages. BM knows nothing about affinity, it just starts the application. You have to assign a specific process to a specific core using task manager or similar. Then it loses it as soon as ...

Re: Problems running multiple Rosetta tasks

Is this "Bill"?

His 72 thread, dual E5 host has 64 gig of RAM and the task output states "Peak working set size 2,229.42 MB" for RAM usage." so that's a 2+ gig peak for each task and 'only' 64 gig available.

Re: Problems running multiple Rosetta tasks

That was my previous experience as well but it's the usual way of tasks limiting by themselves. I have had a badly configured host that was set to use only 10 gig of disc space (rather than leave 10 gig free) and more tasks just didn't get started, the error log stated "application needs xxx of disc...

Re: Problems running multiple Rosetta tasks

I'm guessing by 'node' they means CPU in a normal dual CPU setup. CPU percentage? Disc space? RAM allowance? Sounds like RAM usage, when I tried Rosetta a while back, each task was taking over a gig of RAM. If they have 64 gig installed and don't allow all of it to be used for BOINC then they might ...

Re: Another new project?: Sunet

... you can only select science areas rather than specific projects and SUNET will assign your computer to appropriate projects.
Sounds just like DAs new endeavour, "sign up and we'll use your computing power how we like"

I think I had a few credits went missing, can't remember whether I was actively crunching it much at the time, guess I'll find out when/if the email comes through? All seems fine for my account.

Re: QuChem prob

I had it set to zero priority as well and thought that might be the problem, Changing it didn't make any difference. I think I've been blacklisted, I have work on six hosts but three just gave up. Edit. I see the problem now, the hosts that don't get work are Windows ones and I seem to remember that...

DENIS returning from its slumber?

After being dead for the greater part of a year and having lost six months of user credits, DENIS MAY be coming back to life.

https://denis.usj.es/denisathome/forum_ ... php?id=193

Credits will be restored where possible over the next few days and work may appear slowly (no funding yet)

Re: Mindmodelling

I've cut them down to about a quarter of the cores, they should have ~4 gig each now so I'll see how they go for now.

Re: Mindmodelling

That might explain my problems. I picked up a few tasks then contact with the hosts was very slow / non existent.

Do you know if they actually finish as I could limit them to only a couple at a time?

Re: Mindmodelling

Oh they're still asking, I just noticed there were idle cores so I've put Wanless back on as a 0 share backup project.

Surprisingly after the sprint, Wanless is back up and running :o
