11:29 <Antagonist> Naturally... I find a #boinc channel AFTER I'm done setting up the frustrating BOINC server

11:34 *** Tom678 has joined #boinc

11:34 <Tom678> hi

11:35 <Tom678> I have a strange issue: I installed boinc on kubuntu lucid and it autostarts at system startup. so far so good

11:35 <Tom678> when i open boincmgr it shows me the two active tasks marked as active, and in 'top' I do see them eating the cpu

11:36 <Tom678> however in boincmgr the time and the percentages do NOT advance not a single second even after an hour

11:37 <Tom678> sudo /etc/init.d/boinc-client restart however makes me see progress being made, but from the point it was there, no jump to show it had advanced before as well

11:37 <Tom678> so what is it crunching then?

11:37 <Tom678> do I always have to perform that manual restart of boinc client?

12:02 *** licensed has joined #boinc

12:04 <Tank_Master> not all projects show their progress

14:01 <PovAddict_> &grab Antagonist

14:01 <Romulus> PovAddict_: The operation succeeded.

14:01 *** PovAddict_ is now known as PovAddict

14:04 <hawmps> Tom678... some projects take quite a while to begin reporting also.

14:04 <hawmps> do I always have to perform that manual restart of boinc client? << no

14:22 <Tom678> Tink_Master, hawmps: but once I do the restart it reports IMMEDIATELY each second of work is show in the 'elapsed time' field, otherwise eveb after two hours it does not increase a single second

14:22 <Tom678> so it's really suspicious

14:23 <Tom678> and it's the very same project

14:23 <PovAddict> Tom678: probably the science app saves that information when you quit

14:23 <Tom678> however it is marked as active (not paused/suspended) and i see in top it's the two top entries

14:23 <PovAddict> project's fault either way (and I haven't seen you say which project that is)

14:24 <Tom678> I can even leave boincmgr open and restart in terminal, and then suddenly the numbers start progressing, not just once for the restart but each second following

14:24 <Tom678> milkyway

14:24 <Tom678> and wcg

14:28 <Tom678> is there a way to check this in terminal instead of boincmgr and see if progress is really made?

14:28 <PovAddict> boinccmd --get_results

14:29 <Tom678> thank you

14:29 <Tom678> :-)

14:29 <hawmps> you might be automatically suspending it by doing regular work also... check your settings...

14:34 <Tom678> no, it's workign when user is active too

14:34 <Tom678> and 'top' or sysytem monitor alsways show it as 2 top entries

14:34 <PovAddict> if it was suspending, it wouldn't explain why progress jumps forward after restarting

14:36 <Tom678> it's not on this machine here, so i cannot chaeck right now, but I copied 'boinccmd --get_results', so tomorrow I'll try

14:36 <Tom678> thank you

14:37 <Tom678> here it's kubuntu as well, but still karmic, and working without these issues

14:43 <Tom678> so thanks again

14:43 <Tom678> and have a nice evening!
