My Linux PERF and CNODE work units are not ending.
Since maintenance the work units are running for ever.
I have a PERF that has reached 100% after 1 hour but still running (usual time is 3 to 4 minutes)
I have CNODE work units that have passed 2 hours and not past 79% and still running (usual run time is about 30 minutes)

This is happening on all 3 of my Linux computers.

I will abort them and see if the next ones run OK or not.

Conan

EDIT:: new ones are doing the same, running forever.

OONI work units don't seem to be affected.

Yes iThena Computational has had this same problem for the last 2 days.

Now both projects are having this problem.

You can stop your countdown Dr Who Fan, we have arrived.

Sorry to say Rysiu, but server disk full and I can't upload any work units.

We are scheduling project outages from June 10, 2022 to June 12, 2022.

These will be temporary access issues.
Sometimes these interruptions may last a few hours at most.

The downtime is related to upgrades (frequent problems with hard drives and storage on the iThena.Measurements platform).


As I stated over on iThena.Computational, thanks for your work in making the project run more smoothly.

G'Day Aurum,
In the case of the i686 and x86_64, the difference is 32 bit and 64bit applications.
They do the same thing and are the same application.
The 32 bit ones run faster than the 64 bit ones for me but award the same points so I don't worry about them too much.

I have a machine without the 32 bit libraries and it does not download the i686 work units, only 64bit.

Rysiu will have to answer your other questions.

13) Questions and Answers : Web site : iThena.Measurements & iThena.Computation are timing out with SSL errors (Message 1403)
Posted 22 Dec 2021 by Profile Conan
Post:
I have had a number of 'Project Communication Failed' errors over the past few days, they all resolve themselves in around 15 minutes which is no real issue.

I have not seen the SSL errors on my Linux computers, just the project communication failed errors.

On my Windows computers going back through the messages, I found a few 'SSL Connect Error' messages as well as 'Couldn't Connect to Server' error messages.
However they usually resolved in a few minutes going on the Boinc message log.

So I have not been too worried by them.

It's back again, all my CNODE work units are taking up to 2 hours or more to run, not 30 minutes.

OONI Probe does not seem to be affected, however an occasional PERF does run long as well but not all.

Been happening last few days.

Conan


The CNODE work units are still taking up to 3 hours to run for me, averaging well over the hour mark.

What happened to 30 minutes?

Conan


Well I found the basis for my long running work units.

After a reorganization of my internet connection (I moved the modem/router from my office to the front lounge room, re-ran the telephone lead-in cable to a new 8P8C (RJ45) wall connection and plugged a RJ11 phone jack into that for the modem, fibre only gets to the node then copper phone lines to the house, speeds aren't brilliant but OK), my internet started playing up.
I bought a 50M (metre) pre-made Cat6 SSTP cable, this shielded cable was to be my backbone cable from the modem through the ceiling back to my office where my computers are.
I ran the cable up through the wall across the ceiling down into my office, plugged it in and my internet started dropping out.
My gigabit HP ProCurve switch had been working fine with a Cat5e cable from the modem to the switch before the move. Constantly unplugging and replugging the cable in to get internet back was a hassle so I called the company and they sent a replacement cable.
This did the same thing, not as bad but just as annoying. So I spent more money and bought a crimping tool and connectors and then cut off and re-terminated the first cable, but nothing changed.
So I bought a new switch from TP-Link (the HP is at least 8 years old) only to find it did not work at all with the cable I had bought, no internet at all.
Put the old switch back in.
Went out today to a local electrical wholesaler and bought a normal 50 Metre Cat6 cable and all started to work.
A download that had taken 3 days to get to 60% done downloaded in seconds, my internet speeds jumped with speed tests going from 0.1Mbps to 35-50 Mbps.
With that CNODE work units dropped back to 30 minutes.

With CNODE needing an internet connection all the time the ultra slow internet (slower than the old dial up speeds for those of us that can remember that) was causing the work units to drag out trying to get it's data through.

So my $65.00 bargain cable, with the extras ($35.00 crimping tool+connectors, $150.00 switch, $75.00 new Cat6 cable), ended up costing $ 325.00, some bargain eh.

So not an issue with the project but with my home network, which I still have to re-wire through the ceiling yet to make it permanent (it is draped through the house during my testing).

At least now I wont have to check at 3 in the morning to see if I am still connect to the net.

This problem is back.

My PERF tasks are taking from 40 minutes to over an Hour to run, not 3 to 4 minutes as normal.

My CNODE takes are running for nearly 2 hours so far and none have finished and reported yet.

Who knows how long an OONI work unit will run seeing as 6 hours is normal.

Conan


Back to normal again now, some bad parameters perhaps?

I believe there was a BOINC Wide Teams import done, so all teams are there.
If you are the founder then your e-mail you used to set the team up and password will get you in (I think).

Oh and thank you for the increase in pay for the OONI work units, only noticed it today.
