New Separation Runs

ps_separation_82_3s_dr8_3
de_separation_82_3s_dr8_3


These have increased the number of steps from

ps_separation_82_3s_dr8_2
de_separation_82_3s_dr8_2

Which should fix the errors people were reporting.

Please report problems here.

Thank you,
Jeff Thompson

de_separation_82_3s_dr8_2_1358941502_29558890_2 is reporting that it will take 87600:00:00 to complete on ATI graphics !!!!!!

System is not sending completed or calling for new ones at the present time. Unknown why other than it probably thinks I have plenty to do with that huge wu. *shrug*

I got the same time estimate, 87600:00:00, on an AMD card. The task locked up the BOINC client and it would not restart. I ended up renaming the milky way directory and restarting. A new directory was created and all the nbody's ended up in a computation error, I had suspended the GPU tasks prior to this so they were recovered and all is running again.

I will pull them back down and check through all the parameters. I will also try some different variants on the test machine before reposting..

Thank you for the feedback.

I thought the nbody's were CPU only, the ones with the 87600:00:00 time estimate come in marked for the GPU. My system appears to try to start them on the GPU and I am wondering if this is what caused the crash?

Separation doesn't use the nbody application and has GPU support.

I have 2 more on another system that is CPU processing only

de_separation_82_3s_dr8_1358941502_29567987_1
de_separation_82_3s_dr8_1358941502_29616483_0

Both showing the same time for completion 87600:00:00

Previous system running with ATI card has updated and now sending and receiving WUs. Don't know what happened to the one that had the extended time frame unless it borked and got tossed.

Edit - These WUs are now showing up as invalid with too many errors. Guess that sorts it out. 3 different systems processed them with same results.

I have several that reported 87600 hours to complete (curiously 3650 days) that I aborted as they forced others to high priority.

Well I am not sure what is happening but I woke up with the system down and unable to restart again. Again had to dump the Milkyway directory to recover.
The task was from the de_separation_82_3s_dr8_3 group.

Got two of these in row after a restart, which results in a client lockup. These always have the 87600:00:00 time estimate and always crash my client. This is making extremely difficult to run tasks on my system. Any chance these are going to be corrected?

Message 57718 - Posted: 29 Mar 2013, 19:08:04 UTC - in response to Message 57700.  

Today, all the Milky Way runs have ended with a "Computational Error".

I received 1 download that would require 28,000+ hours to run. I aborted this run.

Once we close the old runs there are still some runs in the systems that process through.


I am using a versioning number at the end of the runs and that tells you which release it was.

de_p_82_3s_dr8_2
ps_p_82_3s_dr8_2

de_p_82_3s_dr8_3
ps_p_82_3s_dr8_3

Were the previous runs I have re-confirmed that they are not active runs. So old units were still in the queue with the other separation runs.

I have

de_p_82_3s_dr8_4
ps_p_82_3s_dr8_4

starting and am posting on the changes on those in the next thread.
