Hi Krzysztof ...

Sounds like the server had a virus....and then it turned into a pandemic....

Good job inoculating... appreciate.

Server migration will start about 7am (CET) on Tuesday 29th and it will take up to two days as we need to replace all hardware.
I'm also sure that it will generate some problems with web site, but I need to go for All Saints Day to family and will start to sort it not before Monday, 2nd of November.

I'm not start task generator before moving, if any problems arrive, less tasks will need fixing.


Krzysztof,

How do you plan to handle WU's that extend past their due dates because of the upgrade? or will that be an issue?

I was not uploading completed WU's a day or two ago but I see they are uploading now.

Thanks.

Can we get a confirmation when the server is offline?

Sure, I will publish info before we switch of servers.


Thanks for the info.....

I have:
ARMv7 Processor rev 3 (v7l) [Impl 0x41 Arch 7 Variant 0x0 Part 0xc07 Rev 3]
Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS [4.14.150-170|libc 2.27 (Ubuntu GLIBC 2.27-3ubuntu1)]
This is an Odroid XU4

I am noticing that all of my WU's from Universe run my processors at an average of 90% and that WU's from other projects run my processors at an average of 100%
Some of my CPU's are 100-ish% and some are way down in the 60-ish% region with Universe.
I know that previously, maybe it was the earlier BHspin version, I was realizing 100% processor loads across the board.
A look with top or htop will show results.

However on my:

Hardkernel ODROID-N2 [Impl 0x41 Arch 8 Variant 0x0 Part 0xd03 Rev 4]
Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS [4.9.196-63|libc 2.27 (Ubuntu GLIBC 2.27-3ubuntu1)]
My processors average 100% with the current BHspin WU's.

global_prefs_override.xml is the same for both and is set for 100% utilization.

Anyone else experiencing this?

hello
Please read message from admin (Krzysztof) about server upgrade !
It is known already since weeks !!!

Best regards.


Did you read it?
Apparently you interpreted what he said quite differently than I did ....
For one thing, I can't find an announcement anywhere and secondly, there is a misrepresentation about how the dates coincide....
and server status shows everything up and online...
But oh well, eh mate?
Best Regards....

My Crunch times have gone from around 8,000 seconds to around 21,000 seconds with the 283 batch.
RAC is dropping accordingly.
I'm not whining and I'm not leaving.
Universe still provides a good credit compensation for work completed ratio.
Don't change anything, leave it just like it is.
I'm fine with it.

Hi Krzysztof,

You were right. I discovered that the 3 machines that I had problems with needed some software libraries updated and a settings change update to run with BHspin v2 v0.19.....

My machines are now all loaded with WU's.

Fixed my download problem on my N2's and as far as I can tell on my Nano-Pi-M4 just adding the option to cc_config.xml fixed it's WU download problem as well.....
Thanks again.

Believe me, this third time. It must wait to server hardware upgrade to sort this out.

OK Krzysztof,
I trust that you understand more of this situation than myself so I will just be patient and wait and see.
Thank you.

Hello Krzysztof,
I want to believe you but Universe has run out of tasks previously and there never was a recovery issue, for me anyways. Maybe the previous WU's were much quicker to create and these new ones take a much longer time to create?
I have 3 machines that just will not download WU's since July 24th. I have 4 other machines that received WU's on Aug 1st was last time. I have machines that have received Universe WU's everyday since the 24th of July including today.... they have been crunching right along....
I have manually updated all of these hosts that are not receiving WU's with Universe update requests at least 3 times per day. Out of all of my hosts the three that haven't had any Universe WU's since July 24th doesn't match what you said. That's honestly right at a minimum of 40 requests for WU's that have been un-answered. Yea, maybe it's just a roll of the dice.... but 40 requests in 13 days.... on same days other hosts of mine receive WU's...
I think those are Las Vegas odds.....
Seems like an anomaly....

I have two N2's.

Linux n2-node2-1 4.9.187-52 #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Aug 6 01:05:58 -03 2019 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux
They were crunching Universe but after July 24th they cannot receive any Universe WU's.
I just did a full-update on them today.....
I still have no Universe WU's... server keeps reporting, "No Tasks Available"...... but it shows it has tasks.
I now have 7 machines, including N2's, XU4's and a Friendly M4 that will not download Universe WU's....
Other projects are no problem...
Any suggestions?

I wonder if a glance over the server logs would be beneficial.....
It doesn't appear that the problem is going to be self correcting....
I would also venture a guess that it is entirely possible that the
Tasks ready to send 3051778
value is inaccurate..... but it seems all task types across the board are affected.

I appreciate the "tip" and I tried separately on each of the machines to suspend other project (TN-Grid) then reset Universe.... then reboot, then update universe, and it was having none of it...
I reset both Universe and TN and then removed them from boinc.
I rebooted. I reattached to Universe. Not to TN-Grid.
The first message is "No Tasks Sent", the next messages are "No Tasks Available"....
I wish it would just get fixed.
