11) Message boards : : Number crunching : Workunit twice to the same computer
Posted 418 days ago by m.somers
Hi,

this has to do with 'homogenous redundancy'. This project allows for sending the two WUs to the same computer, but not within the period; you can get the sequentially. This 'relaxed' option allows for more throughput of WUs for a project that really needs that 'homogenous redundancy'.

See http://boinc.gorlaeus.net/Graphical_libs.php; you probably need to install the 64 bit versions of MESA / freeglut.

Well, you'd be suprised; all WU and result enries in the data base are reganerated from one single original one. That one contains spaces. Attempts to modify that (aka removing spaces) will result in a signature mismatch => download error. Removing this means stopping the workflow (stop automatically generating WUs) which means drying the project. This affects many (ALL) users. The error we are dealing with only affects 1% or less of the users/volunteers. All in all the xml parsing error is within the client and having spaces there is not invalid xml as such. So... the situation; there is a bug in the clients XML parsing that affects less than 1% of the volunteers and the assumed workarround (not sure and surely not tested) is stopping a project and all outstanding work for that? See my point?

15) Questions and answers : Platform-specific problems : Windows : BOINC doesn't complete uploading of results

Hi,

I currently only find four other upload error results in the DB, of different hosts. To be honest, that doesn't say much.

18) Message boards : : Number crunching : Problem in Linux
Posted 614 days ago by m.somers
No clue; many linux clients seem to run just fine on this project though...

Like I tried to explain; download the .exe and download an example input file and test the executable with that example input file to convince your that the scientific code is just fine...

I think there is something wrong with your BOINC client...

Hi,

this could be related to DNS problems we have been experiencing here at the university... I'll check into this (but due to bureaucracy and some incompetence this might take a while to get fixed though)...
