I haven't had a PERF task finish in the last 3 hours. All PERF tasks now run forever.

The CNode tasks on the other hand are still working well.

Have one PC attached to crunch the new wu's and as soon as they start, progress % goes to 100% and and no cpu usage at all.


Yea they all seem to start the same way. The problem is you can't tell just by looking at them if they will finish correctly or not.
All you can do is monitor them. If you see one running any longer than 2 hrs 15 mins then abort it. The chance of them finishing successfully after that time is close enough to be zero. At least that's the way it's been for me.

Cheers..

Yea same here it's hard to catch one in the act. The next time I do I'll take note & post the results.

Yea same.here, I have a lot that have large amounts of CPU time.
This WU has a runtime of 3,929 but has CPU time of 15,754. https://root.ithena.net/usr/workunit.php?wuid=2869907
It's probably just a bug but it certainly looks like it was running multithreaded.

Wow the timer on the edit function runs out quickly.

*just to elaborate* I'm saying the badges sound like a good idea. Thanks Doctor now.
Not surprisingly the bad work units are not so good ;)

Yea i've aborted plenty of never ending work units as well. It's not all of them but there's enough of them to be a real pain so that I have to constantly monitor everything.
The iThena CNode app doesn't have this problem, it's only the windows app.

And many more just like the above as well.

PS Have also been having some long runner's as well. Just aborted a WU that had been running over 8 hours. Before the 8 hour work unit they were running normally.

As mentioned by Dirk the hack is OS & Region dependant. In other words depending on what region you live in and OS you use you may or may not get this problem. Obviously this fix for those who "do" have the problem described above. The fix in my case worked a treat.

For those interested when I didn't get a reply from the admin I eventually went ahead and tried it out for myself & the answer is yes this method still works.
Using the information in Dirk Broer's post (message 103) I was able to get two raspberry pi 3's and four Pi 4's working here.

Thanks Dirk.

Hi guys is the method mentioned by Dirk still the only way to get Raspberry pi's to run correctly here?
Mine just ran & ran without end until I aborted them.

Looking in the slot directory there was a file called check.dat being constantly created deleted & created again over & over every second.

I'd like to be sure this is still the correct course of action. So I presume you'd have to shut down the boinc client then edit boinc-client.service with Environment=LC_ALL=C is there any other steps involved for those of us new to the world of sudo? (ie: lacking linux skills)

Or is this perhaps a different problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
