Message 2141 - Posted: 20 Aug 2007, 20:28:29 UTC - in response to Message 2139.  

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.

Maybe your general preferences are allowing more that your 978 MB?
Than you have to adjust the values. ;-)
(Go to your account under 'general preferences' and have a closer look at the numbers for: "Use at most x GB disk space"; "Leave at least x GB disk space free"; "Use at most x% of total disk space".
Or if you're using a newer BOINC manager version you can also adjust it for that machine only under Extras -> Preferences -> Disk and Memory usage.)
Lovely greetings, Cori

Depending on how many Wu's you want to Download (25 is the Max at 1 time allowed) to be safe about 150 mb should be enough Disk Space. As long as the Partition has that much it should run.

Also do as Cori Suggested too ... :)

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.


Didn't know we needed that much space, I show only using about 100-115 mb of space unless space is being used somewhere I don't know about ...

You probably don't need that much space, but I have seen checkpointing files which are 300 Mb or so. They are deleted at the end of the computation, though.

If I'm right that also implies that Boinc expects this 1GB to available for it to be willing to download a WU.

Hmm... maybe I'll go ahead and lower it then =)

I moved caferace's post from "Urgent Problems" to here. I left his original post there, since I think this might be another problem than what we have experienced over the last weeks. My machines get no work either. Windows nor Linux.

Thanks, tutta...

On a side note, even though I am turning in lots of results per hour it appears that around the same time the 'no work' message started, results weren't being compared for completeness. My pending is rising rapidly, and a quick check through them confirms that results with two participants having completed them are not being validated. I did notice that the scheduler version number (I think?) seems to have incremented.

Something is broken. :)

Transitioner shows 6 hour backlog; validator says it is working, but appears to be dead. Unless Scott is working Sundays, see you all on Monday- it looks like we are dead in the water. (PS- Rosetta: dead, SETI: dead, good luck having a back-up project run- my only backup still alive is Einstein. The way things look, I expect them to crash at any moment).

I'm not getting any more work, but my systems are still going through their cache, so at least they're not dry.

Have gone dry for cosmology :(

Since I last wrote (at least 8 hours ago) the number of work units the server says are waiting to be sent has remained nearly the same, so I imagine no one is going to be getting any work at the moment.

I don't know whether this is significant or not, but I noticed a change in the message log recently. When requesting OR reporting work I would always get the message "Scheduler RPC succeeded (server version 511)". But starting from the time that no work is sent I have been getting the message "Scheduler RPC succeeded (server version 601)". Anybody know about this server version number and whether it is relevant? On one occasion it said version 509.

Sorry guys, the software fort this project is simply not up to public release standard yet. The project is good in principle, and I'll return here when the software does what it's supposed to do.

That is why the project is still in Alpha state, we expect problems like this and are willing to accept them.

I saw something new today. A couple of my WUs were finished by me and my wingman, but they're still pending. How come?

The numbers aren't really accurate. They kind of relate to the version of the core client that's in development (at least that's how I understand it) and I know they've started the check-ins for version 6. So I'd hazard a guess that Scott updated the backend (notice the addition of "Mark all threads as read" in the forums) and something went wrong with one or more of the daemons.

Anyone running Seti who can tell us what their server version says? Backend changes get rolled out there first (as far as I know).
