1) Message boards : Number crunching : Automate Updates (Message 1895)
Posted 3934 days ago by Claggy
Dear Crashtest, I am running BOINC v.7.1.17. Are their specific Pref setting to control automatic updates when task is completed? Thanks for your help.

Again, run a later Boinc client, eihier 7.1.18 or 7.2.4:

Preliminary Change Log 7.1.17 --> 7.1.18:

client: fix bug that delayed work fetch from non-CPU-intensive projects.

We were waiting until there was no task for the project before asking for another task. We should have been waiting until there was no in-progress task.

Hi,

I am not sure where this post is best placed but here seems OK.

So when I send PMs, where is the outbox?

I have looked and looked and cannot see.

Words of wisdom please...

There isn't an Outbox, only an Inbox, there has been talk about adding one through.

I take that Back, David has just responded:

Fixed.

Edit:

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/changeset/73bd46c3fa3e3bb4d687c4964a6ddff65ec0e4f8/boinc-v2#

client: don't ask an NCI project for work if current job still uploading

Note: we currently assume NCI projects have only 1 app.
Removing this assumption would be a little work.

Posted 3987 days ago by Claggy
I sent a Bug report to the Boinc_alpha list reporting a Minor Bug with with regards to nci apps, trickles and requests,
meaning for every Wu done the project looses 15 minutes of sensor data because Boinc doesn't wait for the upload to complete before asking for work,
or once being refused work, and the upload completes, doesn't immediately ask for work again.
(Meaning there isn't any data collected for about 2 and half hours for every 24 hour peroid)

There has been no response to my Bug report, if someone can replicate it and add their tuppence to the Boinc Alpha list it will be appreciated:

http://lists.ssl.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/boinc_alpha

I have a minor problem with Boinc 7.0.50 (that's when i started running Boinc 7 on this host) and later and Radioactive@home's nci app,
when the app finishes, Boinc 7 does it's trickle up and requests work, but that gets refused as the upload is still in progress,
often after than Boinc 7.0.64 will sit around for up to 15 minutes before asking again:

I see three possible changes, make Boinc 7 wait for the upload to complete before doing the trickle/request (you wouldn't want to do that with CPDN uploads, just nci uploads),
make Boinc 7 request again straight away like Boinc 6.10.58 would,
or get Radioactive@home to allow two tasks in progress, then request wouldn't get refused.

Posted 4113 days ago by Claggy
Nothing essential was changed in the app code between 1.69 and later Linux releases, so if there is a problem, it's coming from the latest BOINC API.
I'm already looking at this, however my Linux host seems to be unaffected so far. I'll check with latest development version of BOINC client.

Same problem at Einstein with their latest Linux apps, they had to rebuild them with an earlier api:
