openSuSE 11.0 x86_64: running, graphics are OK. :)

Unfortunately, I have to correct me there... it only looked like everything was OK, but all WUs are marked as client errors although I did not notice any problem and the stderr out states no problems either. Host ID 42030. :(

No problems on my three windows boxes (two times win2k and one win xp x64) so far, graphics are working and the cubes run smoothly. :)

But I read in my team's forum, that the Linux app crashes immediately after start (process exited with code 22 (0x16, -234)) on Linux 64 hosts. :|

Can you confirm that you actually saw the graphics as the screen saver? And with the "Show Graphics" button from the Manager?

I tried screen saver and "Show Graphics", everything is OK with both options.

So far, I only got WUs on Intel Celeron 1,5GHz with Windows 2000 and BOINC 6.3.8.

CPU time is not reported, therefore, no credit is claimed and no credit granted.

An example: http://pirates.spy-hill.net/result.php?resultid=1595913

Messages say, that the WU took almost 2 minutes:
11.08.2008 14:17:25|Pirates@Home|Starting task wu_1218454091_143_1 using yello version 601
11.08.2008 14:19:18|Pirates@Home|Computation for task wu_1218454091_143_1 finished

Taskmanager showed 100% CPU load while the app was running.

At least the graphics app is working.


Edit: Same on C2D T7200 @2GHz with openSuSE 11.0 x86_64 and BOINC 6.3.8. Runtime is almost the same as on the Celeron.

Only thing of note is that the Windows app is significantly faster than the the Linux app.


These workunits are very short, so it could well be that the Linux app is slower to get started. We should see how they compare when we get to longer WU's.

Linux Starboard apps have always been significantly slower than Windows Starboard apps, too. But with these Hello app it's even worse. C2D @ 2GHz running openSuSE 11 x86_64 takes 14 seconds per WU, while Mobile Celeron 1,5GHz running Windows 2000 takes 12 seconds and C2Q @ 3,2GHz only 3 seconds. :P

I made another observation: On the Windows hosts, all WUs have a Memory Leaks Detected!!! part in stderr out, but on the Linux host, it's OK.

Is it just me or is the Linux app dramatically slower than the Windows app?

The current Hello WUs take 5 seconds on C2D T7200 @ 2 GHz running Windows XP, and 10.8 seconds on C2D E6600 @ 2,66 GHz running Fedora 7 x86_64. Even my Mobile Celeron @ 1,5 GHz (Windows 2k) is almost as fast as the Linux host.

I think it was just a short infrastructure test.

make_work is disabled again.

I'm now seriously thinking of not awarding BOINC credit for the Mechanical Turk. We would still track work done on the Mechanical Turk, but entirely separate from BOINC credit. So far I've heard voices in favor of that, but nobody opposed. Speak now if you are in favor of BOINC credit for M/T work.

I'm definitely against, as I said before.

Wormholio wrote:
Then the question is what to do with credit already awarded. Since we have the separate total I could take it away from the BOINC credit, for a clean separation, or I can just leave it as it is but not award future credit.

I realized that the first option would not work if we also awarded credit to teams, so I decided not to award team credit, pending a decision.

I'd like to see the M/T credits subtracted from totals (one fifth of my total credits I got via M/T, but I consider them worthless).

I see the problem with the team credits, but isn't it possible to subtract the team outputs during the time, when there wasn't any starboard work?
