Message 71717 - Posted: 10 Feb 2022, 4:22:40 UTC

I've added the other runs (de_modfit_<71-86>_bundle5_3s_south_pt2_2). The first one that I put up was returning successful completions by crunchers already, so these should all be the same.

Thanks for your patience, and a shout-out to Al for correctly figuring out the problem.

Also heads up, these tasks will have -np 100 and not -np 104, so make sure to edit any scripts to account for that. If it does the weird 7-task thing again it will spit out -np 400 instead of -np 416.

Message 71720 - Posted: 10 Feb 2022, 13:28:05 UTC - in response to Message 71717.  

I wanted to bring to Tom's attention, some errors that are in the log stderr_txt of the WU successful both the latest created and those before, here for example:

I'll go through them in order:

This isn't really an error, it's just the program saying "I didn't find a Lua script, so I'm going to use the parameters file instead". This is actually what we want (the lua script is outdated, and we use parameter files now). This shows up in every workunit.

The warnings that you linked are compiler warnings, so they aren't expected to cause any problems. It just means that the code is written in a way that the compiler doesn't "prefer". This shows up in every workunit.

This one seems to be related to your graphics card, because it doesn't show up in every workunit. Separation does an estimate of how long the WU will take to run before it starts calculations. It does this by looking at how many FLOP/s (floating-point operations per second) your GPU can do. If it's below some expected threshold apparently it comments on that and then warns you that it is actually using another number for the calculation. This could actually be due to the graphics card that you're using, or it could be due to a quirk in how Separation calculates the FLOP/s. Either way, I don't expect it to change anything about the actual calculation.

I'm getting a small number of tasks erroring out after a few seconds, are these just leftovers resent from before? This is one:

Yes, that one is a leftover resend from the initial bad batch. Ignore it since Tom and Al have figured out the issue and Tom has put up new stripes with the fixed parameter sets.

Well, I find these bad leftovers still problematic as they cause my client to backoff exponentially for some reason.

There must be something in Boinc that does that if there's a lot of errors, to stop you from overloading a server with many mistakes which could be your fault. You can manually override it by updating the project, but that's kinda hard when we can only get a couple of hours work at a time. I set up a Windows event on one of mine to update the project every 15 minutes.

Doesn't that leave a command prompt window open? I use task scheduler (on startup then every 15 minutes).

We are still going to get the leftover resends from the last batch and the resends from the initial new batch with the badly formatted parameter set until all hit their too many errors limit upon which they will be finally retired and not sent back out again.

Patience is required.

Not that they bother me (it's a very small number which isn't triggering a backoff here and they don't waste processing time), but surely the admin can cancel them so they aren't resent? Or is the Boinc server not that clever? I'm sure some projects actually cancel tasks when you have them on your computer.

I just went to cancel them, but it looks like the majority of them have already left the pool. It's nontrivial to cancel them since I can't query over the run names (since they both contain the same substring "south_pt2"). Unfortunately we'll just have to let them naturally error out.

That's unfortunate. I keep getting slugs of bad tasks that knock a host offline for 3 hours in backoff unless I manually intervene with an update.

I've started to remove them but it's slow-going - I can only cancel 999 at a time, and there are ~82k WUs from the original runs out there right now. Just going to throw on some TV and hit the cancel button over and over for a little while.

I've cancelled all of the bad workunits from the job pool. Hopefully you should see them disappear from your machines shortly.

Just had the last few on my machine cancel, so that worked.

Are they taking longer than the previous units?
They are on my hosts!

These jobs are batched into 5 workunit groups instead of 4 workunit groups like the last set of runs. This is because there are fewer parameters in each workunit so we can fit an extra workunit on each command line. You should be getting more credit for these tasks than the last set, I think. (However, it might be roughly the same credit because each workunit will take less time to crunch, because it has fewer parameters)

On one of my PCs, they take about 25 secs longer and I get the same credit.
