Message 62351 - Posted: 28 Apr 2020, 22:40:21 UTC

OK, I’m now officially confused!

For the past week my main rig :-

https://www.cpdn.org/show_host_detail.php?hostid=1489273

has been running a single cpdn WU (plus 7 or 6 WCG and 5 or 6 Rosetta) and requesting more each day but, despite showing at least 2000 WUs available, has not been receiving any. My resource allocation is set to WCG=100, Rosetta=80, CPDN=60.

Tonight it finished that WU, trickle fed the results and then reported completion. As this did not elicit a response I explicitly requested more work but, despite still showing more than 2000 Linux work units available, I “got 0 new tasks, no tasks sent”. The buffer was not full as 12 minutes later WCG requested work and download 7 new tasks.

What have I done wrong to be shunned this way :-)

They had an outage today. It is working again for me.

If still not getting work, go to the event log options and tick work fetch debug, then paste the lines following the attempt to fetch work. Probably worth clicking on the line in the event log asking for work and setting the event log to, "Show only this project" This may give you the answer by itself in which case it would be good if you told us that.

Do leave an hour after previous attempts to get work as trying earlier restarts the one hour back off period.

Not spotting the cause immediately. Will study some more. Worth turning the flag off again for the event log now you have the information so as not to clog it up. Also waiting till some work finishes on my box here to see what happens when I request work.

Well, he's asking for a perfectly reasonable amount of work, but the server isn't sending it.

At most projects, I'd say 'check your project preferences - make sure you're allowing the type of work currently available'. But this project has those options turned off.

And, I have temporarily allowed all four cores on my laptop and it is currently downloading a task. Now winter has gone, running on all four cores it gets a bit warm and noisy so once downloads are finished and I know it is running OK I will suspend the new task until another is finished. Any memory or disk space problems I would expect a message to say so which means I am a bit stumped.

Edit also checked Maximum daily WU quota per CPU 0/day. wasn't -1/day which is when Andy stops them getting new work till they have told us 32 bit libs have been installed. (I would have expected some message in the log if that were the case but can't remember from old posts here what it is.)

The system normally runs 2 CPDN tasks and would happily run many more if I didn't suspend the excess. Memory should be OK, currently running 6 Rosetta tasks taking about 5GB and 6 WCG taking about 0.5GB out of 15GB available. Disk has 30+GB free for Boinc.

Sometimes CPDN doesn't send work with a short buffer (e.g., 0.1 + 0.5 days).

If that is your case, try the following:
Set No New Work to all the projects except CPDN
Set the buffer to 1.0 + 2.0 days
Hit Update

See what happens.

That is probably it, the buffer is set to 0.2 + 0.2 but dumbklutz here has just messed up following simple instructions and downloaded 21 Rosetta and 56 WCG tasks by mistake.

I'll try again in an hour when the timeout's cleared :-)

OK, I've now taken it up to 2.2 + 2.2 and still no joy.

Sadly I didn't have log work fetch on, I'll up the request to 3.2 + 2.2 with logging in an hour and report back.

The reason I've not put it higher quicker is fear of getting 12 WUs at once as has happened before. As I don't run more than 2 at the same time that would take me a couple of months to clear which I'm loath to do.

You could always detach from CPDN, reboot and then reattach.

I'll set it back to normal and try detach / attach.

Woah, that's caused chaos!

From steadily running 7/6 WCG and 5/6 Rosetta I now have 9 Rosetta waiting to run with 9 WCG and 3 Rosetta running.

I'll leave it until the morning when it's (hopefully) sorted that out before taking any further action.

You would probably need to set the work buffer higher as the N216 models typically take 10 to 14days to run. Try setting the buffer to 10 days work but reduce your number of processors to 25% to reduce the work capabillty depending on how many cores your processors have.

At 0.2 + 0.2 my client requested 3 WUs which is already more than I need, I think at this point we need to work out why the server did not honour that request - I cannot be playing games every 10 days trying to get work that should be trickle feeding anyway.

I'm going to have to wait several days before I can usefully try again, in the current state it won't request work because the buffer is full of WCG and Rosetta WUs.

A partial copy of the work log :-

Question, what is the "piggyback: don't need CPU" saying, is that just echoing the job cache full decision?

Not if you suspend those projects while the request is made.

Ah, thank you - I’ll try that.
