Message 48738 - Posted: 13 May 2011, 16:01:28 UTC

In the last day I've been getting a number of "error while computing" WUs on all my machines. All other machines are failing these same WUs. Here's an example:

Message 48739 - Posted: 13 May 2011, 16:27:46 UTC - in response to Message 48738.  

Unfortunately the server clears out finished WU info quick. Can you post the name for these WU's? It should start with "de_separation" or "de_nbody." Thanks.

Some of the bad WUs I've gotten on several machines, all failing. They fail on every machine they're sent to.

Yep the bad WUs are still coming. So far have had 93+ of these error out today. Unfortunately they error at the end and a few have even "gotten stuck" and run for hours instead of the usual few minutes.

Thanks. Problem is, the "de_separation_17_3s_fix_5" WUs are worse. Not only do they fail but they sometimes run for hours, tying up the GPU :(

I've had several fail the same way as previously mentioned here. Aborted the rest and, for now at least, it appears that de_separation ones have stopped downloading.

One's account only goes back 1 or two WU's I've noticed so it's difficult to check for a pattern.

This is ridiculous...now de_nbody_orphan_test_2model_4_50204_1305471400_1 failed and one before that. I've aborted another one since and am turning off the work fetch until someone sorts this mess out.

You'll find it in the Boinc Data-Dir
For Win xp the standard is
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BOINC

For individual WU Stderr's go to: Account Page - click Computers - click Tasks [of the PC you are interested in] - look for the Task Column on the Top Left - go to the WU you are interested in - click the blue number - your there.

Stderr only shows for individual WUs when work has been done - or failed :)
