I saw a task was uploading on tablet little earlier, thinking think much about it. Then I saw I had 4 on laptop waiting retry. I manually retried. 2 went okay. 1 showed all data transferred but fell back to waiting retry and one didn't get through. On 2nd try, both cleared. Looks like the backlog is clearing up slowly.

I got 1 WU that needs to download but I got plenty in the que for now so I'll let it retry on its own.

WCG is in transition to a new data center with a new project owner for the next couple of months, so lot of folks probably firing up old/other projects in the meanwhile.

Unless something in the server says there's a newer/different client, clients attached previous to the downtime most likely would still be able to run the WUs.

I suspect if Krys reuploaded the clients (and verified they are being pointed to correctly) that would cure things.

For Android, what projects are active and have tasks for Android currently?

I was thinking Asteroids had an Android client but it appears they are down.

I never understood having 2 options that essentially did the same thing.

It might just be the current Android client, but I though it said it completed a task. At any rate, I checked the results and after figuring out which computers were the Droids, I see they failed too.

It's too bad LHC@home doesn't have any Android work else I'd run that for while till Krys gets the file situation sorted out. I might be thinking of another project, but I was thinking some years back we had this issue and I believe the remedy was reloading all the clients...

The actual apps are failing to download with Permanent HTTP errors. See my post in news. I think Android might be okay, but my Internet was out this morning so I'll have to check and see if I got any more. It looked one Android completed though.

Returning to Universe@home as WCG is no longer sending work in preparation to transition to new data center. Bad timing on my part on starting up Universe@Home. Don't know if this is related to the downtime today:

2/15/22 9:49:45 PM | Universe@Home | Started download of BHspin2_19_windows_x86_64.exe
2/15/22 9:49:45 PM | Universe@Home | Started download of jobbh2_19.0.xml
2/15/22 9:49:56 PM | Universe@Home | Giving up on download of BHspin2_19_windows_x86_64.exe: permanent HTTP error
2/15/22 9:49:56 PM | Universe@Home | Giving up on download of jobbh2_19.0.xml: permanent HTTP error



It appears the WU come through but then there is nothing to run so they error out...

Haven't checked the Droids yet.

The BONC manager is just a handler. It doesn't actually run the tasks themselves. Each project has their own apps which BOINC calls to do work and monitor. Sometimes the app doesn't properly report and BOINC thinks it has shut down while it continues to run on its own. It's not a problem exclusive to Universe, but it has been plaguing Universe for some months...
13) Message boards : Number crunching : How do you earn credits? (Message 2426)
Posted 17 Oct 2017 by Profile Yavanius
Post:
Credits vary by project. Many projects area variable credit but usually within a certain median range for each type of work client. Some are a fixed amount.

Basically...

1. Attach to project and download clients and work.
2. Return (successfully) completed work
3. You have usually a couple of 'wingmen' which are others running the same WU (this is to ensure the WU gets processed as well as for verification.) Once they return there results, all the results are compared to ensure they come out the same.
4. If there's no problems you get credit. If there is an error, you probably won't get any credit although in some cases the admin may decide to grant credit (e.g. everybody is getting error or if you are participating in testing).
5. Repeat.

Look for a link to Your account to see the credits you are getting as well as other interesting details.

Run times see a lot longer than I recall on Android. Is this related to the WUs?

Just a note I had 3 BHSpin together with this issue. I aborted two yesterday and the third one today after letting it run (it was still early in the crunching).

I don't remember if there were others as I recently realized I hadn't turned Universe back on and didn't really pay attention other than to note I had Ultraviolet and Quarkstars too (which is good to see :) ).

I have new Android compilation but I know, that there is one important bug in Android libraries for BOINC... So, I will wait until I get message that this bug is sorted out...


I got test apps on, so if you need to push out a test I'd be willing to test it. Love to be able to get Universe running on my Galaxy Tab S2 which is on Android 6 without errors and then I could have everything exploring the Universe. :)

The error isn't caught by BOINC so it keeps running the app endlessly (or at least until it ages out).
