Hi,

since the introduction of the new V0.11 applications, I have been getting a lot of computation errors. Calculation seems alright, but on upload, there is a "filesize too big error".

Thanks
Holger

It seems a problem with vv workunits. I found one too:

Ok, my fault, I need to change the "max_nbytes" parameter somewhere in the work generator. I'm just canceling all the vv affected workunits.

As of today, I have produced over 50 errors in the last 2 days - they are present for 3 of 4 hosts I'm running. The last one is a Raspberry Pi that has not completed any V0.11 WUs yet.

Checking the units of one host:
http://gene.disi.unitn.it/test/results.php?hostid=4378&offset=0&show_names=0&state=6&appid=

All of the invalid are Vv_vwm tasks. All of the recent valid WUs are Ec_ecm tasks...

Cheers
Holger

The Ec workunits were easy to manage: relatively long computation time and small output file, the opposite happens with Vv. Ec (Escherichia coli) has only ~4000 genes while Vv (Vitis Vinifera) more than 28000. So we are trying to balance this in order to achieve the optimal workunit size. (the upload error was obviously not expected, our fault, sorry).

Thanks a lot for the information - so the errors are not due to the V0.11 application, but due to WU size on the new project.

Exactly (the size of the output file)

Could you make a choice in project preferences to choose the WU type? Some of us (read: 1/2 of the USA) have stone age broadband (a misnomer) speeds and can't handle these large uploads for short runtime WUs. I've had to cut way back because of this.
