Il y a très peu de travail pour le moment, et ce n'est que pour Linux.
Un lot de 600 tâches Windows a été publié il y a quelques jours, mais il y a plus de 10 000 ordinateurs Windows en attente de travail.

*******************

There is very little work at the moment, and that is only for Linux.
A batch of 600 Windows tasks was released a couple of days ago, but there are 10,000 plus Windows computers waiting for work.

Possible missing libraries on 1481742 and 1507580. Crashed almost all tasks they've had.

I don't see any enforcement of this. The bad machines still pop up regularly on practically all of my work units.

I have stopped reporting misconfigured machines. I have asked Andy if this is a permanent decision to not do anything and if so I will report back and lock the thread.

These two are crashing 100% of WUs

Does it make sense to report machines or I just waste my time?

No reply from Andy yet. I will ask again.

The original thread was started by Mo about 6 years ago.
I wondered myself, why here, but I never got around to asking her.

______________
Les, where is Mo?

I have emailed the moderators group which includes both Andy and Sarah to ask again as the email to just Andy didn't get a reply. (He may be on leave.) As I said earlier if a decision has been made not to stop tasks going to boxes without the 32bit libraries I will lock this thread.

Andy has said he is interested in blocking at least the most egregious machines, - Probably too much work for the return doing all the two and four core ones but given that some of the offenders blocked in the past have been sixty-four or more cores it may get the number of hard fails down a bit on Linux. I will have a look at recent posts and send him a list.

Talking about misconfigured machines. I have a bit of a problem. Tenth gen Intel i7. Boinc problems. I tried to suspend CPDN so that I get no further work. Boinc does not understand the term suspend, everyday a new lot arrives. I try to exit Boinc, upfront it exits but in Taskmanager it is still working. I want all work to finish somehow so that I can boot up in Safe Mode, uninstall Boinc and do a clean install again, but Boinc is adamant. Boinc, at least on my machine has started behaving like a virus but there are no further observations from anyone else. After twenty days of non-stop running, I rebooted and the WU errored out.
Is everyone 100% sure it is misconfigured machines or Boinc has COVID 19? At least in some cases, it seems so.
Now for a chatterbox friend of mine, Climate, Weather, Meteorology, etc. These things depend upon observations, not pure maths. There is a thread in the Cafe section where a friend of mine is sitting in a cave, contemplating his navel somewhere on a mountain top in Nepal. Join us there and please leave the rest alone.

I have moved the discussion about the exit dialogue with Linux machines to the Linux section.

I have also give Andy a number of 16 and 8 core machines to stop them trashing lots of tasks. I did notice a number of those listed in this thread seem to be inactive now. Presumably the users gave up rather than looking here.

It looks like things are about to change.
It could take a few months though, so don't forget to keep breathing. :)

More specifically, Andy is likely to produce a script which will identify offending machines from the missing library error messages enabling work to those machines to be stopped.

This may affect machines new to CPDN and not just those who believe all they have to do is set and forget. If after initial failures you install the missing 32bit libraries and you are not getting work you will need to let us know via the forums rather than sending private messages to the moderators to get your boxes reinstated.

When this happens or is imminent I or another moderator will post in both the number crunching and Linux sections of the fora.
