I'm not sure of how your recommendations translate to the app_config.xml. This is mine for C@H:

<app_config>
<app>
<name>camb_boinc2docker</name>
<max_concurrent>3</max_concurrent>
</app>
<app_version>
<app_name>camb_boinc2docker</app_name>
<plan_class>vbox64_mt</plan_class>
<avg_ncpus>1</avg_ncpus>
</app_version>
</app_config>

Where does "Max # jobs" fit into this? And is "Max # cpus" the same as <max_concurrent>?

Thanks.

Hi Jonathon,

I am running tasks from multiple projects, though a couple of them are GPU only, so presumably are not part of the problem here.

In addition to C@H, I run Rosetta@Home (which uses VBOX for some tasks), LHC@Home (which does use VBOX, though I have this project suspended for now), and World Community Grid OpenPandemics - COVID-19 (which I believe does NOT use VBOX).

I have the BOINC computing preferences "use no more than x GB" for disk space set to 40GB, but I have plenty so can increase that to anything reasonable.

I have the BOINC computing preferences for Memory "when compute is not in use, use at most x%" set to 90% - I'm not sure if that is what you are asking about. My machine has 16G of RAM.

Back before the pandemic (when I switched to only Rosetta and WGI), I was running C@H for a couple of years with no problems I remember. I'm not sure what would have changed to cause this issue.

I'd really appreciate any other suggestions you can make.

Thanks.

Doug

Hi,

Now that I'm again getting some C@H jobs again, I've suddenly just in the last few days been getting this error:

Task camb_boinc2docker_3006907_1638361207.322645_0 postponed for 86400 seconds: VM job unmanageable, restarting later.

Anyone have any idea what this means? I've tried waiting, which did nothing, and I've tried aborting such jobs, but then I get the same error on at least some succeeding jobs.

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm returning to Cosmology@Home after being away since early last year. However, I'm not getting any tasks, despite the Project Status page showing hundreds of tasks for "camb_boinc2docker". This is what I get in the Event Log:

11/13/2021 3:01:57 PM | Cosmology@Home | Requesting new tasks for CPU
11/13/2021 3:01:59 PM | Cosmology@Home | Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
11/13/2021 3:01:59 PM | Cosmology@Home | No tasks sent
11/13/2021 3:01:59 PM | Cosmology@Home | No tasks are available for camb_boinc2docker
11/13/2021 3:01:59 PM | Cosmology@Home | No tasks are available for planck_param_sims

Anyone have any ideas what the issue is?

Thanks.
