Message 71992 - Posted: 17 Mar 2022, 14:13:08 UTC - in response to Message 71990.  

The admin, Tom Donlon, has been pretty attentive to the project. He's just had some challenges thrown at him lately. Let's be patient and let him work through the issues. There are lots of other projects to work on in the meantime.


Good point. We are all volunteers here. We aren't "owed" anything by the admin.

Looks like the system is removing valid work units as the list of valid work units that i have completed went down from over 4000 units down to less then 2000 work units now.Still cant get any new work units or upload completed work units for most of today
Agreed, on the server status page: "Workunits waiting for validation 4526218" - I'm sure that had exceeded 6 million before.


Thanks for posting a number so I could see if anything was happening.
Workunits waiting for validation 4526218
Transitioner backlog (hours) 53.43

Nothing has changed in a bit. Hoping this lucky day is good for Tom and the system.

There are lots of other projects to work on in the meantime.

Any specific suggestions? So far managed to keep the computer busy with what it could get between outages, and now it still has some 16-17h of work left, but it's only connected a small part of the time, sometimes as little as 2h/day, which makes it trickier to "catch" those moments when such things happen, and it's also just a dual-core Pentium with 4 GB of RAM, 32-bit OS, no dedicated GPU, and only doing CPU work, which seriously limits what it can work on, plenty of projects using much more resources, and I just want it to work on environmental or space projects (and can't exactly find any environmental ones), so after SETI@home shut down it was quite a relief to see that MW@h's separation tasks had even lower resource use and switch here.

Was just checking up. Have many units (27) stacking up waiting to report (deadline 2022-03-28).

Good to know it's not me or my setup. I'm here for 2 months waiting for World Community Grid to come back up in mid April.

The feeder program isn't running, along with a number of the other server programs, no work in going out or coming in. MW@H is offline as far as crunching work is concerned.

Other GPU projects include:
Einstein@home
Moo! Wrapper
SRBase (TF app)
MLC@home (nvidia only)
NumberFields@home (nvidia only)
Amicable Numbers (uses around 10GB main system RAM per WU)
Collatz (if you like big credit)

As for CPU projects, take your pick. To find an active project you can go to BoincStats and look to see if there is currently credit being earned on the project

NumberFields@home (nvidia only)

NumberFields runs as well on my RX 570 as on my GTX 1060, at least on Ubuntu 20.04.

Once it starts backing off you're stuck in a loop of un-connection. I suppose I could set up a script to check continuously but in the meantime I'm checking out NumberFields and so far, so good.

You can maybe handle Einstein@home? I've got an Intel Core2 Duo (E4500) 22.2GHz, 3GB RAM, no GPU, 32 bit OS that works. Each task uses ~770mb. takes 18-20 hours each but at least they run. On my intel I5 @3.5GHz, they take an hour and a half:}

You could try Moowrapper , I have an Intel Quad 2.7 GHz 32 Bit, each WU takes 64 Mins usually. Quite low memory requirements, I usually run 3 at a time, 4 winds CPU temperature up.

Yeah, I've gotta do some serious maintenance tomorrow. Unfortunately, I don't have a way to connect to the server at the moment.

Message 72007 - Posted: 18 Mar 2022, 2:30:32 UTC

After downloading an updated ca-bundle.crt, since I have an old version of BOINC that had that expired certificate and it wouldn't connect to either, tried Universe@home but that didn't work, got a BOINC warning that it may not have work for my type of computer and after joining it, said no tasks available. Would the 32-bit Win 7 be the issue there?
Next I tried Cosmology@home, remembered a legacy app it had that was supposed to run on 32-bit, and after several attempts where it kept saying either that work cache was full though I had it set to 1+1 days and just have MW@h WUs for a few more hours, or that tasks aren't needed because it's not highest priority project even though I even set it to 2000 with the rest being at 100, after setting cache back to the previous 5+5 days it downloaded a bunch... Problem being that there are too many, just wanted something to get me through the day until this will be fixed, going by what Tom just said.
Ah well... At least the 120 Mb RAM / WU I see used now are manageable.

I'm running Cosmology and Einstein on the CPUs.

This shortage of funding for disks doesn't make sense. Isn't NASA giving you guys money?

32 bit?! I've got a computer which is 12 years old and it runs 64 bit Windows 11.

At Seti@home, there were frequently calls for donations to raise money for buying new HDD. Would be an option here as well.
