#1 high error rates on WU

Unread post by davidBAM » Wed Apr 03, 2019 10:18 pm

100% error rate on Rosetta WU on Linux - but only after they have run for hours and hours.

Any tips as to why please?

In truth, I was thinking that I might try putting windows on USB3 disks (is that easy enough?) and using them on an alternate boot. My big problem is that the machines are all over the house and none have keyboards or monitors so it'll be a nightmare to set them up unless I can can get TeamViewer to come up automatically.

This was mainly so that I could contribute something during the Gerasim sprint

Your Ubuntu box gets segmentation violations, your FreeBSD box has even more troubles.
Have you installed the 32-bit files too? They're needed for quite some BOINC apps...

On FreeBSD: did you read this? http://www.dotsch.de/boinc/FreeBSD_Linu ... howto.html

Thanks Dirk - not sure about the 32-bit files so I probably haven't installed them. You are right about the freeBSD box - seems it was running out of swap space trying to run 44 threads of Rosetta.

Your link seems to be under construction so will check back later to see if I've missed anything else but that box has happily crunched several different projects for 6 months or so

I don't know, it depends on your distro and the exact version as to what exactly is offered by your repository.
In some distro's ia32-libs is not available and you have to search for an equivalent package.

Assuming you run many threads simultaneously, have you by any chance read this http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/forum ... p?id=13019 ?

Ah - that might have a lot to do with it thanks. Yes, I would have had 44 threads - some Rosetta, some Rosetta-mini.

I'll gently dip a toe in the water next time I try
