Message 1853 - Posted: 8 Aug 2007, 22:03:27 UTC

This is where discussion about urgent problems will go that were posted in the URGENT Problems Thread.

I will also move posts that do not belong in that thread to this one. Please do not be offended if I move your post here.

I have a little problem with this...THESE ARE BOTH MY BOXES! There both working on the same result! While I'm new to ATA, is this normal? Do I get rid of the one that hasn't finished yet and wait for it to get picked up by another box or let it finish?

I haven't crunched "against" myself yet but I'd keep the WU running. ;-)

This is OK. The rule is "one result per host", not "one result per user". Proceed normally.

Oh good, you are allowing the same host to crunch the same result now if no other class HR can be found. Applause. :)

Then again, he's a TFFE'er, you should've sent him around the bend. TFFE'ers are used to that. ;-)

@Ageless, great...I've already got a fan!! But It's not the same host, while both box's are mine, I thought that might be a problem but Scott says no.

@Rudy Toody, you're quoting the last post as if your "problem" is as severe as yeebee's was before now. Please state what your problem is. As far as I see, 3 pages down in your results, all results have found a matching CPU. In that case, just have patience.

My apologies, oh great one. I assumed something without checking. :-)

caspr, give my regards to Keith, when you next see him. He'll talk utter bollocks about me, but still likes me more than the next fuzzy thing he sees around here. :)

To quote parts of what people wrote, use the [ quote] text [/ quote] tags (without the spaces).

Actually, I quoted Truck Target.

I didn't add my own message, since his problem was identical to one we were having at the time. (no work)

I see. And you don't think that adding information of your own about your setup and problem is useful to get to the end of the problem?

You could've just as well posted "I have the same problem" in answer to that post. It would've been more useful than assuming that the next person knew what you meant.

I have seen enough "Q&A" forums where people just quote others and don't leave information of their own setup, with computers hidden and although we answered the original poster, it didn't apply to them.
So weeks later there would be a post how come the project or we 'helpers' didn't apply an instant answer to him as well.

We don't seem to be getting work even though the server status says there is work. Can you check this out. It has been discussed in these two threads "Host Limit @ 25 Now ... !!!" & "No New Work- All Platforms?"

Thanks


This problem appears to be getting worse. I have gotten several hundred "no work from project" / "no work for this platform" messages across 6 different platforms in the last 12 hours, leaving several machines without work for several hours at a time.
PS- 22,xxx WUs ready to send while this is happening.

Bump- It's doing it again tonight!

Not so urgent, I think, but after deattaching and then attaching to the project in the new url "cosmologyathome", I can't get any new WU's. I get a message about not having enough disk space. In fact, i have 978 MB (not too much, but I'm ruuning Ubuntu in a little partition) Is it really a problem?

Thanks a lot.

The files created by CAMB can be quite large, with the checkpointing files being several hundred Mb. So, yes, this can cause a problem. I think the rsc_disk_bound is currently at 1 Gb or so.
