Message 31403 - Posted: 16 Nov 2007, 16:35:56 UTC

Yesterday late afternoon, early evening, my network connection went down. I had 2 Climate Prediction models running here (dual core) and some SETI ones. In the course of trying to get my connection going again, I unplugged my firewall/router and ADSL modems a number of times. Since on my LAN I get my IP from the firewall/router, the computer running these models noticed there was a network problem. And for whatever reason, if the connection goes down, the NIC is taken down by the OS (Debian unstable). I suspect this is what lead to the GUI RPC bind error, which is probably why all of the models I had (ClimatePrediction and SETI) dying from errors. Which is kind of sad, as the 2 ClimatePrediction models would have probably run to completion by the end of the month.

Am I correct in guessing as to what happened? Was there anything I should have done to keep this from happening?

Sounds like it\'s another example of Boinc\'s network sensitivity. There are a bunch of similar issues logged (some are duplicates), could you scan through them and document your problem in the one which is closest to your experience?

It looks like 113. 171 is a duplicate of 113.

It is a DNS (and other?) related problem. It showed up at 5.8.15 (I think), and is noted to still happen with 5.10.28 (I have 5.10.27 here). It sounds complicated enough that nobody is going to try and fix this specifically, but it might go away as some of the component bugs contributing to it slowly get squashed.

Suspending, then Exiting from BOINC before working on the network would have saved the models.
And if you were making regular backups, you could have recovered from the crashes.
