Message 2356 - Posted: 8 Aug 2021, 17:09:36 UTC

If you work unit is marked invalid is there any information that could show that it was invalid for sure?

I tried task details but any I had invalid were the same task details as everyone else.

Task details doesn't show any helpful data. Like for example 3 replications all ended with that same number (thou in past I've seen that number different on a few invalids) Would be nice to know if its some instability in my cluster etc.

ex:
Start @ Sat Jul 31 13:08:11 2021
|156224256|
Finish @ Sun Aug 1 12:33:07 2021

Just curious how that part works :)

We use "redundancy" (two results from different computers must be exactly the same) in order to check if a workunit is "valid" (successful computation). If not a third copy of the workunit is sent to another computer. At the end, if two results are identical they are declared "OK" and all the others are marked "invalid".
So, an "invalid" is, briefly, a computation that reached its normal end but with something wrong in it, usually incorrect numeric calculations. There are many possible reasons for getting an "invalid", like overheating or a faulty hardware component. In this case I suggest to run a stress test, like Prime95, on your computer and check the results.
There is also a known bug in our code that may flag a result as invalid, this may happen if you stop your calculation at the very beginning, before the first checkpoint.

I am interested to know whether or not the current project that is running Homo Sapiens (OneGenE - FANTOM-1) has a estimated completion date?

From the science stats page,

H. sapiens (α=0.05, FANTOM-1) +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ | # genes/isoforms | Queued | Executed | Last 10 days | | 87554 | 61490 | 59986 (68.51%) | 88.80/day | +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This indicates there are (87554 - 59986) / 88.80 = 310.45 days remaining which gives February 7th, 2023 as the estimated completion date at the current rate.

Valter just added "ETA" column in the Science Status page :) https://gene.disi.unitn.it/test/gene_science.php

Recently the "Last 10 Days" value, not sure what the units are, maybe genes/day, has dropped from 88 to 66. Server status indicates there's still a lot computers working here. Time to complete WUs is still around 4 hours. I've long thought it'd be nice to have a long term chart to understand the change in genes/day.

I haven't had any in a while but occasionally I will receive a task that runs for under 1 hour (Ryzen 9 3900X). I am guessing these are just shorter tasks. Has anybody else noticed the shorter tasks?

Sure I've seen a number that ran around an hour. Right now I have plenty that are running around 2.5 hours.
I have 31 completed WUs that won't upload. They're all files under 10 kb and Retrying never sends them up. At some point they do seem to have gone up but the list has been growing longer each day for the last week.
My Validation Pending has grown to over 5000 when normally it's well under 2000 which seems odd since they finish faster.
Just curious.

The last workunit of every gene expansion batch is shorter than the others, it is the one containing "wu-294" in its name

On the server status page there is a higher than usual number of "tasks in progress". Will check tomorrow, while back in the office, if there is something strange on the server.

Bingo! I perused my list of running WUs and the one that's running will finish in under an hour.

That does seem high. Does it include the Ready To Start WUs as well?
Every few days my Ready To Start WUs accumulate to almost 300 and I switch preferences to Resource Zero Mode. TN-GRID works really well in RZM and never seems to give me more than one extra WU waiting in the wings. But at Resource 100% it does not seem to honor the BOINC preference for how much work to buffer. All my computers are set to either 0.5 or 1.0 days but you send more than that. I believe some projects limit the maximum amount of WUs to twice the number of CPU threads and GPUgrid limits it to twice the number of GPUs.
It's been a good while since I've noticed the server running out of available WUs. Nice work tuning it up.

I have two finished tasks that I haven't been able to get uploaded to the server all day for some reason.

Tried all the tricks that I know, but nothing has worked. Just keep getting retried. Counts are 11 and 14 attempts so far.

I have one too. It is at 100% and then

Interestingly, my tasks page is whowing only six tasks waiting for validation. The ones that were on there validated seem to have gone. Also it is only showing one task in progress as opposed to 8 which are actually running.

OK, I stopped and restarted the server, checked the databases with mysqlcheck, did a consistency check on the file system, deleted a bunch of zero bytes files inside the upload directory and looked for weird errors inside the logs.
I didn't find something looking particularly "strange", however.
Will monitor the situation and try something else tomorrow

I still am unable to upload my two stalled tasks.

Set http_xfer_debug and got this.
