Message 1486 - Posted: 9 Oct 2009, 14:31:43 UTC

Over the past day, I have been issued 22 of these tasks:

10 errors
6 passed w/ credit
3 still in progress
2 pending
1 complete but cant validate

The main point of this post is to talk about the run time. Most finished in less than an hour, on Pentium D/Athlon X2 class or better.

But one of the tasks (that resulted in an error) ran for 120,402 seconds (33.4 hours). And this was on a Core 2 Quad (Q6600):

The "maximum disk space exceeded" error message means that the task was using more disk space than set in the <rsc_disk_bound>n</rsc_disk_bound> amount given to the task.

Since the user cannot change this number without the task irrevocably crashing immediately upon BOINC restart, it has to be changed by the admin before sending the tasks.

No problem with this. DCF is 68 :)

Which is still too high. You'd want it to be a lot lower, with a maximum of perhaps 5.

But that said, I suspect the fpops estimate on these tasks to be way off. Can you open your client_state.xml file, find Drug Discovery, find one of the tasks for the mdrun application and post the lines for <rsc_fpops_est> and <rsc_fpops_bound>, please?

Make sure to just close client_state.xml, if you get the question to save changes, click No.


No, these WUs were aborted because of exceeded disk limit error, see my previous post. And I have 48 Gb of free disk space.

Ok, I've reset the project to initialize DCF and download a new tasks because LTD was also very big negative value.
