Hello,

there will be a 3-day-long challenge (A), already 9 teams signed up.

I: WU availability:

Can the DD admin please check if there will be enough WUs available for the challenge time ?
(Or mods: can you contact the admin with this or move my post to an appropriate section? Merci)


II. BOINC users: please participate
- 1. tell your teamfounder to join the challenge on boincstats
- 2. the users just have to crunch the WUs in that time period. nothing more

Umm, if our systems can't get tasks, then we can't crunch. I'm getting this now on one Linux setup...

Lin-61XX

347082 DrugDiscovery@Home 1/25/2017 9:27:45 PM Requesting new tasks for CPU
347083 DrugDiscovery@Home 1/25/2017 9:27:47 PM Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
347084 DrugDiscovery@Home 1/25/2017 9:27:47 PM No tasks sent
347085 DrugDiscovery@Home 1/25/2017 9:27:47 PM This computer has finished a daily quota of 101 tasks

Other Linux setups get plenty of work... including the 2p setup....

HELP!

It's downloading fine now... but had a lot of upload and other problems last 24 hours...

I think your server is getting overloaded a bit or running out of disk space or free memory?

Trying to get data on top hosts gives this result now...

Notice: unserialize(): Error at offset 16384 of 16384 bytes in /home/boincadm/projects/drugdiscovery/html/user/top_hosts.php on line 50

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/boincadm/projects/drugdiscovery/html/user/top_hosts.php on line 86

Message 4690 - Posted: 1 Feb 2017, 0:56:27 UTC - in response to Message 4689.  

Got connection deferred to 2 of biggest host and countdown was 24 hours. So might got same as my host, could be this challenge that put high load on servers.
Upload work but does not report task and no new task will fetch.

These short task does not work well to big host, there are frequently start/stop which could cause error for some task. Have seen problem with some other project that have short runtime.

Bigger work units and GROMACS with support to both OpenCL and CUDA would be great.

Soon we will start tests with Gromacs GPU app, there will be two kinds of tasks, short, which will prepare data for long ones.

Agree with 47an, perhaps the Vina and Smina CPU workunits should be made longer to minimize overloading your servers...

Looking forward also to the Gromacs GPU workunits...
