Uploads were down on purpose at that time due to the server migration.

3) Message boards : Number crunching : Using two GPU's (Message 8060)

It has two GPU's a GTX 960 and a GTX 970, yet is is only showing 1 GPU running at 0.2 CPU + 1 Nvidia GPU. Also twin Xeon Hex core processors (24 cores)


Since they are same brands, it should work. You may need to tell BOINC Client to use both and not only "best one" with use_all_gpus setting in the cc_config.xml file. (Please refer to https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Client_configuration for details.)

Hmm, looking at your computers, looks like you don't have OpenCL so we are only using cuda31 apps. This means our v1.3 app crunch on both cards with one process. I can see many WUs with "device: 2 x GeForce GTX 960" from our wrapper and "Automatic processor detection found 2 processors." from D.net Client so it was at least working for some WUs. Not sure what you have been trying to do configuration wise as some do indeed seem to see only one card.

As always, please report ... having work fail more often in the relevant forum here.

Now the 1.05 app (openCL nvidia) fails all work units after 17 seconds.


Curious.. "can't run app: Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service." so I wonder what it runs out of..

Although, do you happen to run McAfee anti-virus? It seems to be detecting the new app for some reason but I suspect it's the age old false positive. If you could try to exclude Moo! Wrapper project from it's heuristic scanning and see if that helps?

Hi,

Thank you for reporting the ] in the team names. I think I've fixed the issue that was introduced in upstream, we'll see after next export.

Your change history post said: "Updated D.net Client for OpenCL (both AMD and nVidia) to build 521", so I was expecting it as well.


Right, I agree that my messages haven't been that clear on what apps are out. One can keep an eye on the release progress in the https://moowrap.net/apps.php page.

I've released the Windows AMD OpenCL as a beta now and wouldn't be mind some people to flip the beta flag and try it out. The reason I'm doing staggering releases and beta is that I don't want to my main contributing apps to start failing for all work or something to that effect.

Some team names was wrong.


Wrong how and are they fine now? There has been on going issues with BOINC-wide team import script but it should be working now. Were the team locally created or BOINC-wide?

How do you make BOINC download the new 1.5 ?
I just did a project reset and got 1.4 again.


It'll happen automatically when the app is available for your platform. At the moment only nVidia OpenCL is out and the 64-bit CPU app is in beta (both for Windows). I'll get more released depending if there are any problems.

When will the Server Status page reflect the new Application times


Unfortunately, Server Status page doesn't go into version specific, just app level, so it'll have both v1.4 and v1.5 times and work status intermingled. The times will include v1.5 work as soon as there's results returned (there has been and there is increasingly).

mcafee epo cloud detects the new app as Artemis!A8478C1EA9FD.


Which one? The wrapper app or the D.net Client? And this is the OpenCL app?

Looks like "Artemis" is codename for their heuristic detection, which usually have problems with new D.net Clients until they realize they are fine (so called false positives). More information about Artemis can be found in https://service.mcafee.com/webcenter/portal/cp/home/articleview?articleId=TS100414.

Ah, thanks for letting me know. I can see what's wrong in the Apache config. I'll fix it.

Hi,

Apologies for the stats problems. Looks like this was related to the server migration where stats export was using new slave DB server that kept failing due to disk space issues. Hopefully I've gotten on top of that problem now.

Post:
FINALLY new app version 1.5 app is released for first platforms (Windows CPU and OpenCL). Biggest improvements are newer D.net Client and BOINC upstream changed to wrapper which both bring fixes and some new features. More information can be found in the changelog post at https://moowrap.net/forum_thread.php?id=206&postid=2265#2265.

As always, please report any problems getting work or having work fail more often in the relevant forum here. Note that there can be some confusion in the BOINC Scheduler as it tries to recalculate stats for best performing app variant for you (like OpenCL vs. native GPU apps).

PS. BOINC Server has also gotten some updates from BOINC developers so there's been lots of churn lately. The server migration is also progressing.

We are in the middle of migrating our servers to a different hosting provider and this can cause sudden maintenance mode or even unexpected problems. Migration will probably still take up to a month. First problem seems to be that everything is slower as the database server has moved but the application server has not. Everything should still work as long as there's no time out.
15) Message boards : News : BOINC Scheduler changes for multiple app version case (Message 7988)
Posted 4 May 2018 by Profile Teemu Mannermaa
Post:
It may have something to do with the message "[May 02 03:32:57 UTC] Automatic processor type detection did not recognize the processor (tag: "Intel(R) HD Graphics 530 ")" in the stderr file.


Right, you seem to have internal Intel GPU as well and Dnet OpenCL app detects that and tries to use but fails to. There's two problems here, first that the Intel GPU fails to run the app and second that it gets detected by the Dnet app so the GPU numbering is out of sync with BOINC Client.

BOINC Schduler should have given up after 10 failures on the OpenCL app but doesn't seem to be doing that. I'll try to figure out if this can be fixed (you should only be getting the cuda31 app until problems with Intel GPUs can be fixed).

16) Message boards : News : BOINC Scheduler changes for multiple app version case (Message 7981)
Posted 2 May 2018 by Profile Teemu Mannermaa
Post:
BOINC Scheduler has had problems sending different app versions to clients when there's multiple possible versions for a platform. For example, this happens when there's both OpenCL and Stream/CUDA or both 32-bit and 64-bit CPU app version available. To hopefully fix this our scheduler has been changed to send each app version until it has enough host specific speed samples. Only exception is when that version has been failing.

Please report any problems of getting work or having them fail more often in our forums. Thank you and happy crunching!
17) Questions and Answers : Windows : Hello Admin, can you update the app already? (Message 7980)

Post:
I'm pretty sure that the site admin IS the project admin for this particular project.


Right, there's only one admin that manages Moo! Wrapper Project at the moment and that's me. :) And for various reasons I haven't been so attentive as I should have been.

But I am working at the moment on getting app and Dnet Client updates out as well as hoping to tweak the BOINC Scheduler to hopefully send duplicate apps more evenly to users. It will take a while and there could be some issues along the way.

18) Questions and Answers : Getting started : Fake DB entries (Message 7749)
Posted 13 Oct 2017 by Profile Teemu Mannermaa
Post:
I'm new here, but couldn't help to notice there're many fake groups on the DB.


I also wonder what these "fake groups" are. If you mean teams or profiles, then there are known problems with spamming that affects most BOINC project websites. I've run cleanup scripts during last update few days ago so there should be much less of those. Additionally new BOINC code has some extra protections against spammers, which are now enabled so hopefully it's harder for spammers to create fake accounts.

In any case, if you spot any teams/profiles/anything that seems to have been created only for spamming purposes then please report them so I can deal with them. There are either specific report button or you can point me to them via a forum message or PM. Thank you!

Post:
It seems that the upgrade/update has taken Moo out of the Gridcoin whitelist as the client can no longer access and acquire stats.
Maybe you could direct the Gridcoin dev team as to where they can acquire stats?


What do they use to obtain stats? Is it the same stats system BOINC Stats uses to get stats from us (which are XML file dumps calculated from our DB every 2 hour) or do they require something else too? Stats system should be working (according to timestamps the dump has been generated 2h ago and is about to be done again) still but I'll verify that it works for others (BOINC Stats website seems to be down at the moment so I can't check if they have any problems). It's possible they use server status XML output as well but that shouldn't have changed even if the HTML output has.

Looks like their stats page is "replaying blockchain" which must be something they are using internally to gather the stats. It's falling behind so it could be an internal processing power problem.

In any case, if they have problems with accessing something on our website, please ask them to contact me (a PM or on forum is fine) with details and I can verify if our end is fine. Thanks for bringing this matter to my attention.

Adding/changing pictures on profiles should be working again. It was a simple as missing a required PHP module (GD) that the profile system needed to process the pictures.
