Claggy, thanks for pointing this thread out to me. I will start that laptop up again tomorrow when I'm at work. Here is the VM http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/show_host_detail.php?hostid=70313

As I said in thread on the Main project, you need to check out your project preferences, your hosts seem to be asking for work but not getting it,
Looks as if you don't have 'Seti v7' selected, probably just got 'SETI@home v7 large workunits' selected of which there are no Wu's available.

I switched their profile. By default, I don't want CPU because I typically would run the GPU here. I just forgot to switch them to the CPU profile. I have the VM up and running again.

The Event Log is saying Not requesting tasks: don't need

Message 49151 - Posted: 5 Feb 2014, 12:19:17 UTC

A few quick notes:

- Boinc updated on the fly. I've never seen an app do that before (not that it matters).

-2nd task took ~33hrs to complete ("normal" angle range)

-next few tasks will take longer to complete as I won't have my phone plugged in to the charger 24/7

P.S. (Quoting myself)
Dunno if this is useful info but here's what my EV says...

LOL! Sorry, the Sound Engineer in me tripped me up on that one. I obviously meant Event Log:)

Hmmm...my client keeps saying Not requesting tasks: don't need

Any ideas?

Preferences:
Checked autostart
checked show notification when suspended
checked show advanced preferences and controls
unchecked transfer tasks on WiFi only
daily transfer limit 0.0 MB
Min. battery level is set to 0%
Max battery temperature is 40% (though I doubt it reads one being in a VM)
CPU limit 100%
Pause at CPU usage above 90%
min. spare storage .1GB
RAM limit 100%

Are those hosts cache's full with work from other projects?

The two lines of that log which showed the BOINC client having difficulty with shared memory were particularly interesting. I had thought the application was perhaps built against a too old version of BOINC and that was causing all the shared memory problems. Without that communication between Boinc and the science app, BOINC is assuming each restart is from the beginning. So it ends up counting just the time after the last restart as the full run time. The nearly 5 hours for that last segment of the second task did bring down your APR a lot, but it's still going to be much too high when BOINC starts believing it (when the "completed" count is 11).

@Eric - It seems it would be wise to have the Validator parse the reported stderr for that "Will run in standalone mode" and mark the task as a runtime_outlier if it's found.

This is the VM I set up for the x86 version of Android. There is no work downloaded yet since no other project has work for x86 Android versions. So, this VM is sitting there doing nothing but waiting for work at the moment.

I'm hoping to have time to debug the server side of this today. Please continue trying to get work occasionally so I have things to see in the logs.

I can do that until about 5PM CST. At that point the laptop will probably be shut down until the following day. I would hook up the VM on one of my desktops, but I'm restructuring the home farm right now and can't guarantee they will be up.

I didn't realize that I was still on 7.2.39 for the VM, but it is now updated to 7.2.41 and still says Not requesting tasks: don't need

No other work has been downloaded from other projects, so the VM should be hungry for work.

I think I've found the problem. You've got "no CPU work" set in your preferences.

I think you are looking at my default settings or my "home" settings. I have this device set for "work" which has everything checked

I think it is a blip in the Android version.

I changed the Home and Default settings and I now receive work. Even though I have it set for "work" under the website preferences.

I think I've found the problem. You've got "no CPU work" set in your preferences.

The Official Android Boinc client will only use the preferences from the 'default' location/venue, ie if you have 'Use CPU' deselected on the default venue you'll never get CPU work for an Android Boinc client.
you may move it to a different location/venue, the project's server will use that location/venue's app selection for the host, but the client will still use the 'default' location/venue' preferences,

My first work unit finished fine.

http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/result.php?resultid=15998553


Runtime 32000sec? Damn that's fast!
(compared to my Windows netbook's Atom @ the same CPU frequency)
almost 3x faster...

The real question though is... was it more efficient when factoring power consumption... My T5300 TDP is 34w (according to Intel) and your Z2420 doesn't seem to have any official stats listed, but I have seen a page or two stating ~4w. So, from an operational cost perspective, your Atom is better if that is true.

I plan on making a VM on my i7 920 some time this weekend to give it a more modern test than that old dual core laptop. When I get my RMA'd RAM back, I will also try it on my Xeon E5-2650L. Granted the clock speeds aren't that great, it does give me a little more overhead since it will have at least 32GB RAM to play with.
