A few WUs crashed here too - all after 20seconds.

I tried detaching/reattaching, but no use.

Got this Windows XP error message:


szAppName : astronomy_1.07_windows_intelx86.exe szAppVer : 0.0.0.0
szModName : astronomy_1.07_windows_intelx86.exe szModVer : 0.0.0.0
offset : 0007f646


Now one wus seems to work... Will watch it and report here!

Cheers, Steffen

I had the same thing happen to me on Vista. My system crashed after I acknowledged that it should be aborted and wasn't very happy. I had to reboot and it too an exceptionally long time to reboot, I thought I had a major problem. Fortunately it now doesn't appear that way.

The *real* problem with these pop-up errors, is that core/thread is idle until someone manually dismisses the pop-up. That brings crunching for all projects to a halt, not just this one.

yeah, i'm not quite sure why the bad workunits are bringing up the windows dialog and stopping everything. no new bad workunits should be created so it's just a matter of getting through these unfortunately :( BOINC doesn't seem to have any tools to get rid of a bad work unit once it's out there (as far as i can tell).

and really, thanks again for putting up with all this. we're new to BOINC and still trying to figure everything out. we're trying our best over here to get everything running as smoothly as possible as possible.

It looks like the WUs that end with 3 and 4 are crashing, WUs ending with 0 are running fine.

Couldnt check WUs ending with 1 or 2 so far.

Edit: Ending with 2 crashes also...

The ending number of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, is merely the replication number, i.e., how many times it has been sent. Anything above 0 is likely to crash unless the first person that received it had a download error. After a WU gets sent out with a 4, it will not be sent again.

I have had maybe 4 or 5 today that have crashed with a 0 as the ending number.

Edit: I think all wus should be canceled server side. Especially since the windows error message halts BOINC completely...

Yep, just got a 5 myself. That one had a missed deadline so it got reissued one more time than normal.

I looked back and it was 4 "0"'s that crashed this morning, this one, this one, and this one have already been resent and returned successfully.

The other one has been resent, but not returned yet. These were not the short ~20 second errors, these ran 8-10 minutes before erroring out. The machine they were run on has been having some other troubles lately (nothing to do with BOINC projects), so that may be the reason it had some errors. I just haven't had the time or desire to look into it too deeply yet.

I've also gotten some shorty WUs again, they take anywhere from 2 - 6 minutes on my P4 3.2 HT.

I was having similar issues. I deatatched and reatatched and the WU's downloaded and processed normally. I watched and if it passed about 39-42 seconds it went to completion.

You can do server side abortions using this:

I suggest you cancel the bad WUs even if they have already started crunching.
