Message 44523 - Posted: 14 Dec 2012, 0:11:22 UTC

I'm running some small tests of SETI@home with large workunits (4M samples rather than 1M samples). The initial tests are mostly to get timings, and will be done with artificial work units.

In order to speed validation by restricting variations I'm running a windows client only. Please no anonymous platform apps with sah_v7_big. If you don't know what that means, don't worry about it. There will be time for testing other platforms and GPUs later.

I don't know if BOINC or I do something wrong ..

I attached BOINC new to S@h-B.
If BOINC ask for CPU WUs:

OK, here's the problem.

@ Eric,

The app_version is absolutely fine, except that it still says the <app_name> is 'setiathome_v7'.

@ everyone else,

You can fix this if you want - but only by editing client_state.xml

Usual warnings - making mistakes when editing client_state can seriously damage your BOINC. Don't even start unless you know what you're doing.

So, what you need to do is:

Stop BOINC, open client_state for editing. Find the sah Beta project, and within that, the <app_version> block for the CPU app - app_name 'setiathome_v7', version_num 698.

Make a duplicate copy of the entire block, and in the second copy, change the app_name to

sah_v7_big

and that's it. Save, restart BOINC, and request new work - it should stick now.

Beware large initial estimates - task 11721615 was initially estimated at over 40 hours - on an i7-3770K clocked at 4.5 GHz :o

(but it's reached 5% in under 40 minutes)

OK looks like I got it.
But the first thing I need to do was geting a normal WU, so that the needed files and entries are available after reseting the project.
Thanks Richard.

With the modified <app_version> in place, the necessary files should be downloaded automatically (if sometimes slowly) alongside your first big WU, whether that's a resend of a task that got discarded or a new assignment.

The i7 has reached 40% in a touch over 5 hours. It's still estimating 31 hours remaining, but we've been noticing that the 'remaining' estimate countdown is very inaccurate with newer BOINCs (this is v7.0.42), unless the initial estimate has settled to something close.

I can edit nothing ..

After detach/attach I have only the following entries in client_state.xml file:

<client_state>

(...)

</result>
<project>
    <master_url>http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/</master_url>
    <project_name>SETI@home Beta Test</project_name>
    
    (...)

</code_sign_key>
</project>
<app>
    <name>sah_v7_big</name>
    <user_friendly_name>SETI@home v7 large workunits</user_friendly_name>
    <non_cpu_intensive>0</non_cpu_intensive>
</app>
<active_task_set>
<active_task>
    <project_master_url>http://setiathome.berkeley.edu ...

(...)

</client_state>


So I need to wait Eric solve the problem ..

@ Eric,

From offline GPU testing, my task is going to overflow - and in the process, generate a 104KB result file. That's going to conflict with the <max_nbytes>65536</max_nbytes> specification in the <result> template.

@ everyone else,

If you want to be certain of avoiding an upload error at the end of these long runs, you will need to increase the <max_nbytes> for each 'sah_v7_big' result. Technically, doubling the value to 131072 would be enough, but making it 10x bigger by adding a 0 to the end is an easier edit.

Request a normal CPU task, then do the edit work without detaching, resetting, or anything else like that.

I set *NNT* until Eric write everything (automatic S@h v7 *large* app download, imminent WU/result overflow) is solved (no user editing needed) ..

I'll increase the result size in the template.

And apparently adding a new app has uncovered a scheduler bug, possibly in the resend lost task code.

I don't think it's (exclusively) the resend lost results code. Here's the complete log record of the very first attempt to process the task I eventually got to run:

The header is over 70000 bytes, reported Pulse signals can be up to ~1400 bytes, so I suggest at least a tripling of max_nbytes.
