Sorry, we're also testing full SSL site access on albert. I disabled it again so you should be able to contact the server flawlessly now.

Thanks for testing this as well ;-)

Oliver


I will do the retest tomorrow, when I'm back in the office. Hope SSL is still disabled then.

Tried to retest over at Albert@home.
Got the following message. Will try again tomorrow

We deployed BRP5 v1.38 on albert (test project) which contains another set of upstream patches that should (hopefully) finally fix the issue. In order to limit our deployment effort we just released the Win32-CUDA and Win64-OpenCL versions.

@Rechenkuenstler/Claggy: please test and report back.


Thanks,
Oliver


Sorry. I have been away for a few days. Sure, I will retest and report.

Cheers

Noticed the following in the BOINC Event Log.

03/07/2013 03:03:53 | Einstein@Home | Task PA0057_01191_213_5 exited with zero status but no 'finished' file
03/07/2013 03:03:53 | Einstein@Home | If this happens repeatedly you may need to reset the project.


This is repeated several times for this task which has not finished yet.

What does this actually mean. Is it important. Do I need to reset E@H.

If this is important, the message is well hidden with no highlighted indication there is anything wrong.

Look here http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/forum_thread.php?id=10193

Check if you have a status.cpt file in the slot subfolder. I suppose you don't.
Depending in your settings, the task will not restart, until calculation is done. Then it can,t create the finished file.

For now, the version 1.36 was deprecated. However, to solve the problem, those who experienced this problem can attach to Albert@Home at http://albert.phys.uwm and try to reproduce the problem with the debugging settings I mentioned above.

Sorry for the inconveniences
HBE


I think, it's not that easy. And they wouldn't have deprecated Version 1.36, if there weren't a problem. I think, the developers will find it and fix it. Everything else is speculation

I#m not sure, if this is related to your problem, but check out this thread.

Strange. Here is a V1.36 with Boinc 7.0.64 and with success

Hi Oliver,

here is the test history. You can't see the stderr.txt files on the webpage, because I aborted the tasks, when the result was clear.

success with 7.0.42 reproduced
error with 7.0.64 reproduced
7.0.55 error
7.0.47 error (plus 2 x freeze of the graphic card when restarting from scratch)
7.0.45 error
7.0.43 success
7.0.44 success
7.0.45 error reproduced
7.0.44 success reproduced

7.0.45 is the first bad one.

Regards

I've switched back both computers from Boinc 7.0.64 to Boinc 7.0.42 and on both computers BRP5 is running successfully


This is interesting indeed. It would be really helpful if you could help us identifying the exact client version that introduced the error. If you're willing to do so, these are steps to follow:

1) Attach to our test project at http://albert.phys.uwm.edu/
2) Reproduce the error with 7.0.64
3) Reproduce no error with 7.0.42
4) Iteratively bisect the versions between those two, available here: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/

By 4) I mean: given the following available versions...

* 7.0.42
* 7.0.43
* 7.0.44
* 7.0.45
* 7.0.46
* 7.0.47
* 7.0.48
* 7.0.52
* 7.0.54
* 7.0.55
* 7.0.56
* 7.0.57
* 7.0.58
* 7.0.59
* 7.0.60
* 7.0.61
* 7.0.62
* 7.0.63
* 7.0.64

4.1) pick the last working version (start with 7.0.42) and the first non-working version (start with 7.0.64)
4.2) pick the version in the middle of the set (start with 7.0.55) and test if it's working
4.3) if it's working it becomes your new "last working version". If it's failing it becomes your new "first non-working version"
4.4) continue with 4.2 until you found the failing version that introduced the error.

Please note: each test you run will reduce the versions remaining to be tested by 50%, hence will quickly tell us which client version introduced the problem (assuming that the bug was introduced in one of the version between the two you reported).


Thanks in advance,
Oliver


Hi Oliver,

tried to perform the testing. The problem is, that there are no Tasks available for BRP5. Tasks to send = 0. And I get the message from the boinc client, that there is no work available. So we have to suspend the test until tomorrow evening. Please make sure, that there are tasks available on Albert@home.

regards
