Re: Longer WUs

We're currently working out some bugs in our code. When these are fixed, I'll be starting some simulations with longer WUs.

Re: Downloading issues

We've recently updated our clients and are testing them with the beta project. Thanks for pointing out this issue. I'll take a look at it this afternoon.

Re: didn't need??

We had a bug in our build system that caused some clients to hang. We'll be releasing new clients soon. I'll post an announcement when we do. Thanks for your help.

Re: Server issues?

Hi, have a problem while downloading files on a Linux system. Can't download files, while eOn needs 950 MB file space, Message from server: eOn client needs 211 MB more disk space, You currently have 740 MB free space available and it needs 954 MB. Can you change these settings to a more realistic ...

Re: Server issues?

Is it possible to change the number of tasks downloaded from 4 to (number of cores+2) or to 8? When a task is finished there's still a few minutes of cpu idle while waiting for the server connection. Due to the nature of our current simulations, work units can lose usefulness quickly. As such, queu...

Re: RSS?

We don't actually have an RSS feed. Would it be helpful to have one? Would it just be easier if we just posted news in a sticky'd announcement thread?

Re: Mac issue

Right now, the Mac client is broken for OS X 10.4 and 10.5. It should work with 10.6. We will be making major changes to the client within the next few weeks, and will hopefully be able to provide a client that works on all intel macs. Could you tell me what account name Gary tried to register with?...

Re: constant scheduler requests

To answer your questions: a) We don't have redundant computing set up because we are able to verify the correctness of work units with far less computation than re-running them. b) You should now be able to get a constant stream of work. You can check the number available WUs at http://eon.ices.utex...

Re: Server issues?

Once we incorporate more accurate simulation methods, our WUs will be much longer and have checkpointing.

Re: all Works 2136951010_ .... in errors

Right now, we are restructuring the client code and cleaning up these errors along the way. This process could take a few weeks, but once finished, we should have longer and more stable work units. (We'll also be able to use more accurate simulation methods!)

Re: all Works 2136951010_ .... in errors

Thanks for reporting these. Have you seen many more failed work units? Our work units can encounter computation errors due to edge-cases and numerical error. Currently, our client gives a non-zero error code when this happens, which BOINC interprets as a failed work unit. We are working on a major u...
