IRC logs of #boinc for Sunday, 2009-03-15

00:00 <zombie67> the BOINC code about reliability has dorked things up

00:02 <Soul_keeper> bummer, well don't look like it's gonna work before i fall to sleep

00:02 <zombie67> change to seti or seti beta

00:05 <zombie67> "Yes, as the WU takes 24 hours on ps3. That is the case. A ps3 will never be considered reliable by the server. This is a limitation of the server which consider all the applications the same."

00:05 <Soul_keeper>   appears it could be my version of boinc

00:05 <Romulus> <> (at

00:05 <Soul_keeper> 6.6.12

00:07 <PovAddict> [01:00] <zombie67> the BOINC code about reliability has dorked things up

00:07 <PovAddict> "boinc" and "reliable" in the same sentence?

00:07 <zombie67> *snort*

00:09 <zombie67> apparently BOINC server has the ability to categorize the reliability of hosts....whatever that means.  I know WCG uses that function, and now GPUGRID.

00:09 <Soul_keeper> i had to use 6.6.12  it's the latest source version with a compile bug ...

00:09 <Soul_keeper> without*

00:09 <Soul_keeper> so my other option would be downgrade further ...

00:09 <zombie67> to what goal?

00:12 <Soul_keeper> make it get work

00:12 <Soul_keeper> unless i should just go to sleep

00:13 <Soul_keeper> yeah i didn't sleep last night, so i gotta go

00:13 <zombie67> no, the problem is with their server!

00:13 <zombie67> not your clinet

00:13 <zombie67> client

00:13 <Soul_keeper> yeah but if i leave my end alone, is that the best action

00:13 <zombie67> downgrading will not solve the problem

00:14 <zombie67> changing your end makes no difference

00:14 <zombie67> you have to wait for the admin to fix it

00:14 <Soul_keeper> ok we'll see what happens tomarrow morning then

00:14 <zombie67> I saw no post about the problem ywt

00:14 <zombie67> yet

00:14 <PovAddict>

00:14 <zombie67> on their forum, so go do it

00:15 <PovAddict> anyone who has played MUDs will enjoy that one

00:15 <zombie67> ah!

00:31 <PovAddict> you play by doing nothing

00:31 <PovAddict> if you talk in the channel, you're penalized

00:38 <PovAddict> what's funny is what happens to characters

02:16 <zombie67> BOINC allows optimised applications, so why we cant crunch on it?

02:16 <zombie67> - yes, BOINC is all-purpose castomisable solution, but current project goal is not collecting primes.

02:16 <zombie67> Project goal is develop gersim@home itself + create app. template for use in future.

02:16 <zombie67> There are no benefit from optimised application. So, optimised application prohibited(project specific).

02:16 <zombie67> 1.You may reset project and crunch using approved application.

02:16 <zombie67> 2.You can crunch how you likes, but credits will granted accordingly to benefit = 0.

02:16 <zombie67> Please, let me know about your choice.

12:08 <Plan_B> receive no WUs since several weeks, whatsup with Einstein?

12:17 <Plan_B> hei ho so much answers...

12:22 <up365> Plan_B, I'm running an Einstein task right now, cpu time 8hrs, progress 82%, to completion 1hr 48m

12:24 <CoderForLife> looks like there's work to be had

12:24 <Romulus> Title: Einstein@Home - Server Status (at

12:25 * wdsmia has no problems getting E@H wu's

12:28 <Plan_B> 15.03.2009 17:25:44|Einstein@Home|Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks

12:29 <wdsmia> how much did it request?

12:32 <Plan_B> who is it?

12:32 <Romulus> I guess it is built dynamically, Plan_B

12:36 <Plan_B> "did who request" was my question.

12:37 <Plan_B> Maintain enough work for an additional "+3 days" are my preferences

12:40 <CoderForLife> OK, I'll ask the stupid questions - is the project set to get new tasks?

12:41 <CoderForLife> do you have the right project URL?

12:41 <Plan_B> mom take a look

12:41 <CoderForLife> is DNS resolving the location of E@H correctly?

12:41 <CoderForLife> mom?

12:41 <Plan_B> take a moment

12:42 <CoderForLife> me?

12:43 <Plan_B> Ive got WU up to 06. March this year. I change nothing in the preferences. Since then nothing happend - no WUs.

12:44 <CoderForLife> in BOINC Manager - what is the Status of the Project?

12:45 <Plan_B> evrything is in green except "MIT LIGO Lab" set to red

12:46 <CoderForLife> maybe I need to update my Manager - I don't have "green"

12:46 *** up365 has quit IRC

12:47 *** up365 has joined #boinc

12:47 <Plan_B> ok in other words: Status = Running

12:49 <Plan_B> Exception: "MIT LIGO Lab" = Not Running

12:49 <CoderForLife> I'll upgrade after my SETI WU completes in 6 minutes

12:52 *** w3ccv has quit IRC

12:52 *** johto has joined #boinc

12:52 <Plan_B> Sorry, I don't understand "upgrade"?

12:53 <Plan_B> Do you mean "update"?

12:53 <johto> has anyone experienced a problem where running boinc causes windows vista to shut down?

12:53 <CoderForLife> sure

12:54 <Plan_B> @johto: no

12:54 <CoderForLife> you mean "crash" johto?

12:55 <johto> I'm not sure sure. the power just goes down on my laptop

12:55 <johto> and it's only caused by boinc, not any other cpu-intensitive programs

12:55 <CoderForLife> does it do that when not running boinc?

12:55 <johto> no, it doesn't

12:56 <CoderForLife> boinc is CPU intensive - what's happening to battery power when boinc is running?

12:56 <johto> what do you mean?

12:57 <johto> (I'm only running it with a power cord connected)

12:57 <CoderForLife> let me ask another way - are you on battery when it dies?

12:57 <johto> no

12:58 <johto> I'm thinking it's a hardware problem, but I figured if there was anyone with similar experiences

13:00 <CoderForLife> not that I've heard

13:01 <johto> all right. thanks anyway

13:01 *** johto has left #boinc

13:01 <Plan_B> @CoderForLife: Anything I may take look inside to solve this "no WUs" problem?

13:03 <CoderForLife> I am waiting for a SETI WU to finish so I can update my version of BOINC to find your green/red status.  I was asking in BOINC Manager, on the Projects tab, what the Status of Einstein@Home was, is it "---"?

13:05 <CoderForLife> I can download E@H WUs with no problem.

13:06 <CoderForLife> downloading a whole bunch of updates - it's been awhile since I did Einstein

13:06 <CoderForLife> got 10 WUs

13:06 <Plan_B> jesses

13:07 <CoderForLife> all 3 to 4 hours each

13:07 <CoderForLife> 3/15/2009 1:04:36 PM|Einstein@Home|Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.  Requesting 128569 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks

13:07 <CoderForLife> 3/15/2009 1:05:01 PM|Einstein@Home|Scheduler request succeeded: got 10 new tasks

13:08 <Plan_B> I got no clue what the heck is wrong with boinc / my computer...

13:08 <CoderForLife> I've suspended them all so I can finish this one SETI WU and upgrade

13:09 <Plan_B> hit the "stats" tab the respond is "Running"

13:09 <CoderForLife> I don;t have a "stats" tab

13:10 <Plan_B> ehich Boinc Manager Version?

13:10 <Plan_B> Ive got 6.4.7

13:10 <CoderForLife> I'm updating - as I said

13:10 <Plan_B> ops

13:11 <CoderForLife> I have 6.2.19

13:11 <CoderForLife> As soon as I get this SETI WU done

13:14 *** yoyo[RKN] has joined #boinc

13:15 <CoderForLife> when I said 6 minutes before, I should have said 26 minutes

13:15 <CoderForLife> 2 minutes remaining

13:18 <CoderForLife> Plan_B: see  BOINC 6.4 has get work problems

13:18 <Romulus> <> (at

13:18 <CoderForLife> I'm not upgrading

13:19 <Plan_B> wait I will take a look

13:22 <CoderForLife> heh - my SETI WU has jumped back to 23 minutes remaining

13:22 <Plan_B> hum, sounds not good. But my 2 other project received every day new WUs

13:22 <CoderForLife> maybe it *was* 6 minutes before

13:22 <CoderForLife> I can't say Plan_B

13:23 <CoderForLife> I'm going to stay where I am - trying to decide if I want to crunch these 10 E@H WUs or not

13:28 <Plan_B> ok thx

14:36 <MTughan> yoyo[RKN]: I'd download a WU on a PPC Mac, but I don't own a PPC Mac.

14:36 <yoyo[RKN]> hmm

14:37 <yoyo[RKN]> if the wrapper is started standalone it works, but not in boinc

14:37 <MTughan> Then it sounds like a BOINC problem. Does it work if ecm is started manually, or the wrapper is started manually?

14:38 <yoyo[RKN]> the wrapper is started manually

14:38 <yoyo[RKN]> and starts ecm

14:38 <MTughan> So then it's a BOINC problem, and not a problem with ecm or the wrapper.

14:38 <MTughan> Does the application get renamed automatically?

14:39 <yoyo[RKN]> it should

14:39 <yoyo[RKN]> maybe zombie67 can make a test

14:40 <yoyo[RKN]> aaaaaaaaaah

14:41 <yoyo[RKN]> think I made some mistake

14:41 <yoyo[RKN]> and therefore it is not renamed

15:01 <yoyo[RKN]> now it works, MTughan
