Hi Goph!
Hi All..... Just shot an email to Laurenu2 and decided to check in here. Laurenu2 just pushed us to 9th position. ( I have to learn where we stand & all )

Some things for linux (64 bit) users to watch out for... 6.4.5 does not work properly on Fedora AMD installs on ANY CPU. The CORRECT version is 6.2.15.... BUT this means you MUST VERIFY the 'network always available' in the LOCAL OVERRIDE SETTINGS... and that it is NOT doing anything by the preferences critial to ops. Otherwise you will have work waiting to report, but never reported. One machine had 700+ claimed credits waiting for the 'update', just since 5am.

As I told Lauren.... there was a ton of work stacked up ready to send in... It's now uploading/reporting & processing.... You should see things pick up now (I hope I got it all).

To add injury to insult.... I had an 'overcollection of farm dust' get into my Gigabyte coolers.... As such, the cpus shut down at 70+C like they should, but the nVidia graphics card sitting next to it could not handle the 70C and gave up the ghost. I will be off to the store this PM to see if anything reasonable (8800, 8800GT, etc is available).... I'ld take anything that can handle the heat in the event of another farm dust buildup.
I also lost 3 HD's in that... but they were circa 2004 vintage and the heat obviously did them in.. no big deal there.
After a good washing of alcohol and relubricating of bearings and fresh mounting on the cpus... all is good again... 39-42C at full load per CPU... including being overclocked by 6% until compound cures.

To get things running and 'up the heat'... I turned off the X-server, and am running the one machine on a (DO NOT LAUGH) STB 128 Velocity (8MB RAM) PCI-33 card. It works fine in text mode but not well in X.... go figure! :) (it's my 'dire emergency' card!)

As for the project... Now the settings are set.... All non-boinc work suspended to make up for the stupidity / frustration. (yes, I was an unhappy camper!)

Project Overall: Perhaps being redundant, but running in Text mode (./run_client) is much faster than bringing up the overhead of X and the BOINC GUI if settings are all KNOWN CORRECT and avoiding all the darn RPC calls BOINC makes.


Thanks again for the welcome Goph..... It's good to be up and running.... %#@!!$$ BOINC.... lol

Laurenu2 and all have done a great job pushing us up and I hope I can contribute to that now things are running as they should be. Four spare cpu coolers are in prep to be ready for the other machine, should another also need a 'de-farming'.... :)

Hope my efforts help.

actually that's nothing to do with v6.4.5 I don't think.

I was running 6.4.5 on a couple of 64bit AMD's under CentOS just fine, though they now are running 6.5 (and have issues due to scheduling and GPUGrid making it think it needs more cpu resource :( ) The boinc developers are working on this for the 6.6 series coming out probably in the next few weeks..

Waiting to report just means that it hasn't ran a scheduled report to the server in a while. This could be due to many reasons, but mainly it's the value of the 'connected to internet every X days' which should be set to 0 for always on, and yes this can be overrode at the client-side but it's not really necessary...

After all that though, if you can I'd stick with 6.2.19 or 6.2.21 anyway due to the scheduling problems which have cropped up recently.

Bok

Bok,

You are probably correct that it has nothing to do with 6.4.5 specifically. I think it has more to do with the Network Manager & other noise now in FC-9 and FC-10 which got accidentally pushed back into FC-8.

I have experienced the scheduling problems (minor) with 6.2.15 on FC-8.... they are manageable/correctable.... I know 6.4.5 is good with other 64 bit linuxes, but I was specific to the Fedora AMD (FC-8, FC-9, and probably the FC-10 which is coming out).

I will try 6.2.19 or .21 if you think that's got a better scheduler..... What it reports to the host (that my client is only 16% active, yet runs 98-99% efficiency) doesn't make sense. The scheduling and interface of 6.4.5 on Fedora (redhat) just doesn't want to work right, regardless of what I do, but then the Network Manager and related VPN packages have SVN conflicts like crazy.... (to the point of not even installing!!!!) ... Somehow the Tree branches for FC-9 seem to have been pushed onto FC-8 and caused heretofore unseen problems in FC-8. One such example is a standard NFS mount..... Can you believe 'No route to host' ?? when the IP of the host is in the host table and you can both PING and SSH and everything else to it, including run Sun xVM and get a SMB share from it???

Is it worth the effort to give it to give 6.2.19/21 a try? Does it work 'better' ?


Thanks,
Chuck

Bok

Sounds like your problems are more with the OS than Boinc anyway right ?

I never use the packages for BOINC anyway, I just wget the tarball and untar it and then

./boinc --allow_gui_remote_rpc via screen (to let me utilize boincview)

Longtime since I used FC, I prefer CentOS these days for crunchers personally, mainly because I use it for my work stuff as my comany only supports Suse or RHEL (but CentOs works fine :p )

If you are getting 'no route to host' messages, well that's a different kettle of fish... I'd switch of ipv6 first then start checking the routing..

Bok,
There is no 6.2.19 or 6.2.21 left anymore in the x86_64 side at boincdl.

I would much rather download the sources and compile my own. that way I get an AMD64 scheduled version anyway.... meaning the benchmarks come out correctly, etc.

I do have my client connection value == 0. It likes that.... Now, I found something, possibly related and please verify that if you specify 100.00 (make sure to put in the .00) for your cpu utilization and loading parameters (bottom two) of the processors tab that all is still ok for you; that you don't get a stderr report from the project attached to your results. It reports errors for me... and then 'ignores' the invalid XML value of 100.00 It also ignores the invalid date.... I presume the completion date deadline (in unix time format) because it's also a float (.00000) and not an integer (which time and cpu% should be..... as in eg.100%).

I will continue to look at results and see what I can find... and perhaps we can figure out if it is my machine/client or the project ??? It has not impacted my results validity OTHER than lowering the claimed credits and artificallly raising the CPU time used. ~10,000 seconds???? these things are done in approx 2 hrs except for the P4, which does have some issues and takes about 9,000 seconds :)

If this is 6.2.15 related, then I understand..... and will have to find a way to get something better... even if 32 bit mode only.


As for the NFS issue.... I know that is the 'NetworkManager' package..... I have a work around by putting in manual routing statements into the table for host->host NFS connections and all is fine. Yet if you look at 'netstat -r' everything is fine there.... Again, another FC-9 error that has NEVER existed before in FC-8. I never had this problem until FC-9 came out. Perhaps it's time to switch / try something else in spite of my long standing familiarity to Suse and Redhat Linux.
(More personal + professional with Redhat, but experience with Suse at the personal level as well in the early days)....

Is is perhaps time to drop BACK to a 32 bit install for running boinc? I know that's why my benchmarks are messed up.... it was a perfect piece of algebra to compute the correct value that BOINC reported.

It does make sense for 32 bit boinc..... if this project is 32 bit based (even if 64 bit wrapped)....

Things like OGR really do benefit from 64 bit mode. Personal projects (video, audio, math, etc) and true boinc 64 bit math are fantastic in 64 bit mode. aka... anything moving data or doing real 64 bit final or interim result math, benefits. (more work / clock... plain and simple).

Advice? A 32 bit and a 64 bit install of Fedora or Suse or ????? (just not Gentoo or Ubuntu please.... <grin>)


FWIW: BOINC is the ONLY application I have trouble with in 64 bit mode other than the OS NFS glitch in the routing table

I found it...... combo of a) firewall/ iptables and b) SELINUX...... i know the game now..Fedora's "permissive" is not as permissive as it claims, neither is the firewall. Ports are open, 'no route to host magically disappeared, proper ports are open / specified and all is :bigtrain:


sorry for off-topic, but now I can control it all from one machine AND have the proper ports open..... DAMN, it's tighter than a ........... censored.............. :)

Bok
12-30-2008, 10:23 PM
I switch off permissive mode most of the time anyway. I run an OpenBSD firewall on an old P2-333 that has been running for 10 years and has never been breached, so don't worry about the machines behind it too much.

Forget about benchmarks in boinc, they are mostly not used anyway. They can be easily artificially inflated so most projects, long ago, gave up using whatever the client claims for credits..

IOW you gain nothing by compiling your own..

Bok

Chuck
12-31-2008, 02:54 AM
Bok,
That's what I did.... I turned up the firewall a notch on my fileserver.... which has never been breached... (no have I for that matter)... disabled SELINUX (the main cause), and found, since last post that putting a *(rw) instead of the older format +(rw) or just (rw) made it a) stop complaining / warning and b) start working in IPV4 or V6. Please tell me if this sounds like things are in tune: I can use tar, cpio, or just plain cp -r from a local to a NFS dir and simultaneously watch a 2 hr movie (1.7GB .mp4) in vlc using the default caching of 300 ms both on the 100Mbit side of the lan FROM the NFS'd directory. The Gb side is obviously no problem with performance. So no special tuning was required of anything.

Sorry to have taken up post time.... and given nobody cares about the credits then why run the points race for position #1? Is it because any particular project will be statistically equally fair / unfair in credit granting and therefore even out in the end anyway? Granted some of these 'non-science' ones are fun..... a nice break from the heavy stuff.

Thanks for taking a look at things and letting me know all is ok.... I am at 6.2.15 with 0.05 reporting interval. It runs like a champ as my stats will show .... and that is on 14.4 Ghz of cpu power 4x2.4 (partitioned into 2 VMs) and 1x 2.2 'X2' and 1x2.4, running stock + 3% speeds after having re-heatsinked all the machines this PM.

If I do compile my own code, I will put in an affinity option (which I haven't net found in the client) so that slot 0 set affinity -> core 0, etc.... I will minimally write it up if it's not already on the boards for the next revision.... it would help overall client performance and stop the cpu/core thrashing. Also would like to set a 'minimum client priority' feature as well or just map it into some range like : (using Windows as a ref: 100% == normal, 80% ->50% = below normal, and 50%->idle == low.)

Also got a nice little graphics card.... nice and cheap. They are clearing the shelves of anything possible given the holiday shopping was bad here. I will be leaving to go back to work next week and look forward to the warm weather. It was about 70 today and decent from what i read. Look forward to it... (sure beats 16-20F with the occasional 40F day).

Thanks again.... exhausted here.... just rewired the lan too for dual DSLs. It's all partitioned now by IP address and the routers do the work. I'll fire up the new toy when i get home. I have some work to do yet....and then the 'burn in' testing. Once online, I will VPN to Pa from whereever I am and let it report as part of the network in Pa. It will also save me having to lug around all the HD's and big stuff. One line for normal/current open use, one for me. :)


Night all...
Thanks again Bok & IB for looking at that data.


Cheers,
Chuck

Also got 1.5 beta 8 somewhere (it was available via the Blog section iirc and not the standard download page) - must've grabbed it just before the BOINCView site shut down...

Shame it never got developed further - quite a nice view for BOINC.

Bok - 1.4.2 was that last non-beta release, 1.5 beta 8 was the last beta release.

Chuck
01-01-2009, 08:55 PM
That did it!

BoincView 1.5 had the right protocol / messages to talk properly to the clients.

All is well..... GREATLY appreciated...


ALSO, please keep that 1.4 in backup... If I have troubles I will back off to 1.4 as I have heard that is also stable.


Thank you all VERY much!!!!

I will hit 30K during the night. We will HALO our way in.


(( my math problems -- no project affiliations, take up
a lot of cpu, but am almost at a logical stopping
point where I can provision more toward this ))

Then it's Lock-Load-Aim & FIRE


:roadkill:

PS: Would someone please build that extra shelf (or 2 or 3 or ... ) for the scrapped cpu parts which we will be picking up from the roadkill ??

Note: This bird can carry 90+ troops to 30K MSL..... We have plenty of extra seats on this FDC charter flight!!!

We're trying to regain our position in Wieferich. Team Norway got a little cocky and passed us to take 3rd and then another team took 4th away from us. We've decided that is unacceptable, so we are pushing back. We've already taken 4th back and will soon repass Norway.

I promised my teammates to give them one meeellion cobbles in Nqueens and I did. Time to move on.

But I sincerely appreciate the competition. Makes this DC stuff more fun.

How's 180knots and decreasing to 'deployment speed' (maybe just about 170-175) by EOD for 12 degree incline of 1500 FPM ??? That includes 6 lost hours while finding a flaky SATA-2 cable in da back of da bus!.... :(



We are AT HALO altitude.... I see Laurenu2's gear is all prep'd .... everyone else ready?????

PS: Make sure you pick up your ':roadkill:' packs from Laurenu2 before you deploy!

you have the GPS locked....
now, get that gun of yours aimed right on the range

Odd - not experience that myself...although doesn't seem a lot of WUs to send atm.

/edit - BoincView (based on resource allocation) shows just under 6 days work buffered...

Chuck
01-12-2009, 09:36 PM
I have no trouble getting work to do.

Respectfully suggest you check
a) local Tools-> settings/preferences in boinc mgr
as they override what is your default setting

b) On the server: please verify your venue and a few
WUs you did turn in... Also see what your daily
limit is. If anything is out of sorts, check the
WUs you have turned in and see if your client
is returning errors.. (main page -> tasks -> left two
columns) and verify your client was not turned off
due to bad WU returns (which there have been a few
of).

c) Last I can think of is boinc manager -> Activity.
I use the 'Run always' or 'Always run'... as well
as the network being always available.

then force an update and see if you can clear any uploaded WUs that have not been 'updated/ credited' to you. You may have hit the 500 quota without an 'update'... (don't see how that is possible , but with boinc, anything is possible).

Feel free to PM me if you need help.

Gang,
Just an FYI: I am going on travel. *IFF* the internet goes out on me while afk, the machines will keep :bigtrain:. There are enough WUs buffered up for the time I will be afk, but they will attempt each hour to upload anyway and are set for full 'automagic' mode.

I say this and prepared for this because I heard Chicago caught an Alberta Clipper which is headed for DC. This puts my machines (electrical & comm) within reach of the clipper as well. I would rather keep crunching and report a whole BUNCH of WUs than have them sit there idle.

As we say in the biz..... Nav set, comm set, flight director engaged! :cheers:

Hope to catch you before I go TDY, but am down to the 60 hr mark now. Things will be busy.

Hang in there... whether reporting actively or not, my machines will be crunching away.... there are 10+ days in each queue.

I will be here 'barely' for the 8th place :banana: celebration, but may miss the 7th and 6th.... Time will tell.

Hang in there!


Moogie & Laurenu2: Please help ensure Gunney Gopher has enough Kippers and keeps his .50 cal :sniper:

Congrats to all!!!! :banana::banana::banana: :cheers::cheers: :roadkill:

Glad I got to see it. I'm off TDY tomorrow about 1400 GMT and will required 2-3 days to get reconnected. Have to determine the WIFI setup, etc... but have 2 different adapters with me.. One WRT54G travel router and a good old 3000WRT-N. One or both *should* do the trick and at least get me connnected to home again.

I'll let you all know when I am planted and settling in for the first 2 weeks of of the TDY. After that should be a piece of cake....

The boxen are here crunching away, and pushed up at least a dozen WUs this PM. All looking well, but the time / WU is slowly increasing as I expected it would.

I do have 2200+ Pending credits and about 2050-> 2100 RAC... so hope that helps with the calcs. Machines are uploading WUs which complete within 40-60 minutes of completion.

I will have better/ real-time control once travel is complete and VPN to home re-established (if possible/permited). Otherwise automagic mode is enabled and operating.


Congrats to all... Job WELL done!!!!


Cheers,
talk to you soon,

That has happened to me and what I did was go into BOINC manager, then if I saw things that were ready to report (tasks) I went to the projects tab, clicked on Nqueens, and then clicked on update (I tend to do that anyway, whether or not I'm showing anything ready to report-don't know if that makes any difference).
