So now I've got machines that are working on the new WUs, but they are getting messages that they can't have work because they won't be able to finish it..

edit - I spoke too soon, I still have PS3s failing to download as well.

Hate to bump myself, but this is still an issue. Multiple PS3s failing to download WUs getting file not found errors

Tried reseting the specific machines (6 different ones), and restarting BOINC all to no avail.

Heading on a week of failed downloads (and general trouble with PS3s) - and no response.


Do you plan to keep supporting them or not? If not just let us know and we can move on.

Message 8886 - Posted: 25 Apr 2009 | 11:39:16 UTC

Problem is still there.

I just cancelled the download of the next WU that the client had been trying to download for some 4 hours without success.
Here some of the 'messages' from the cancelled wu :

25 apr 2009 09:37:07 CEST|GPUGRID|[file_xfer] Started download of file nr19435-GAPREV-37-50-GAPREV1450000-LICENSE
25 apr 2009 09:37:07 CEST|GPUGRID|[file_xfer] Started download of file nr19435-GAPREV-37-50-GAPREV1450000-COPYRIGHT
25 apr 2009 09:37:08 CEST|GPUGRID|[file_xfer] Temporarily failed download of nr19435-GAPREV-37-50-GAPREV1450000-LICENSE: file not found

That however didn't improve the situation. Instead I'm getting these messages :

25 apr 2009 13:29:54 CEST|GPUGRID|Message from server: Full-atom molecular dynamics is not available for your type of computer.
25 apr 2009 13:29:54 CEST|GPUGRID|Message from server: (won't finish in time) BOINC runs 99.7% of time, computation enabled 100.0% of that
25 apr 2009 13:29:54 CEST|GPUGRID|Deferring communication for 31 sec

Does anyone know what to do ? The present '128000-IBUCH_GRAUS-0-100-RND7684_0' wu is nearly finished.

Or when we / I can expect these issues to be solved ?

regards Vagn

Have all these errors happened when trying to download these *GAPREV* WUs?

I'm pretty sure these have to do with the server fall two weeks ago. After recovery, loads of data was coming back in and the disks got quickly filled up. We had to manually babysit it and remove data by batches of Gb. Series of WU as these *GAPREV* had been interrupted.
Recently though, we refilled with new job such as these *IBUCH_GRAUS*.

I hope this helps in clarifying the situation.
Thanks for your patience,

ignasi

Hi all,

apologizes for the late response. We are investigating, but in the meantime feel free to abort WUs which cause "download error" - there should be a fair number of other types now. Thanks for your patience!

Edit: Ignasi anticipated me :-)

Message 8936 - Posted: 25 Apr 2009 | 20:12:56 UTC - in response to Message 8925.

Yes they have all been GAPREV-*

My guess is that you have old WUs floating around that are trapped in the system (fail on one machine -> timeout -> resend to new machine -> repeat)

The SHORT WUs all work, but I keep getting the bad ones (probably because I run 17 PS3s, so I have more chances to get bad stuff)
