21) Questions and Answers : Windows : error while computing frequent (Message 44078)
Posted 23 Apr 2012 by Profile clif9710
Sorry for the delay in responding, Les.

I got into the Stderr files for tasks that failed and compared them to the Stdrr files for tasks that completed without problem.

There seems to be no particular error that is common to the failed tasks.

When I click on a particular task ID, I get what appears to be a list of computers that were assigned that task. If the task fails on one computer it will be assigned to another. On some of the tasks where my computer failed, there are failures on other machines as well until finally the task completes.

I assume this means my failure notices are not all that unusual and I should not be concerned about them.

Looking over the history of tasks that have run on both of my machines, I see many "error while computing" entries. Can I discover the nature of the error so that I might take remedial action, or is this just an unavoidable characteristic of running large projects on my machines?

I run two computers. I would like to set the computing prefs independently but when I go to computing prefs I don't see any way to do this. I see that one can set up "home" and "work" prefs but there doesn't seem to be a way to specify a computer when setting prefs.

Thanks for the info, Les. I let the 12 hours pass and things are running as they should now. I went to my account page and discovered that my other machine had not had contact since November! I've re-booted that machine and hope that will get it talking to the project again. I've found it's never a good idea to leave any Windows machine running unattended for long.

I have two tasks listed, both of which are shown at 100% and have "computation error". Checking messages, all appears normal with computation starting and stopping based on my activity on the PC.

When I look at PROJECTS (I have one) it says "trickle-up pending. Communication deferred 12:24:15"

deferred for over 12 hours? I assume there is a server issue?
28) Questions and Answers : Windows : How to set connection (Message 42344)

It looks like the key is to read the message list and ignore all warnings about internet connections. I see from the messages that for the past few days attempts at downloading have failed but as you predicted, today, Monday, downloads are completing with .gz and .zip files coming in...so I expect the tasks will start shortly.

Under TASKS tab, two are shown at 0% progress. I get a prompt that "BOINC couldn't do internet connection and no default connection is selected. Please connect to the internet, or select a default connection"

I am connected to the Internet, my browser is working fine...

I normally have two PC's running tasks. In the last few days, one of them has stopped running tasks. I am advised by a pop-up from the BOINC icon to run ADVANCED - DO NETWORK COMMUNICATION but this has not helped. Using ADVANCED - OPTIONS - CONNECTIONS I see that there is no connection shown in the window, nor is there a DEFAULT CONNECTION shown at the bottom.

How can I select a connection, that is, how can I get a connection to appear in the window as it does on the other PC that is running tasks just fine?

BTW - On the BOINC Manager task window, lower right, I see CONNECTED TO LOCAL HOST
