Hello,

I'd like to ask an advice about this XXL workunit :
http://www.rnaworld.de/rnaworld/workuni ... id=5826804

56% on my computer since 22 Jul 2012.
It's not the first time I have XXL workunit, but this workunit seems to be particularly long.
I don't want to cancel it, but what do you think about the progress? Is it correct or not?

I have already ask one extension the 12.Aug.2012.
Could I have another extension please?

Danke, merci

(Sorry for my English)

Deadline extended. You can see it on the webpage of the rna world server.

...it really seems extremely long but should finish properly. Keep it going unless there is no CPU progress seen in the task manager.

How much memory does your machine have? Is the machine swpapping already?

My computer is a PowerMac, 2.8 Quad Core Intel Xeon (March 2011).
I have 16 Go of Memory, it isn't swapping. I always have between 4 and 8 Go of free memory.

During two weeks, I stopped my other projects (WCG & malaria) (http://boincstats.com/en/stats/-1/user/ ... 237/charts), but it didn't go faster.
57.536 %, 1% since this morning. That's definitely progress, slowly, but surely (I hope). :)

@ninicool: OK, so RAM is not a problem for you - so you should safely finish it although I can't really tell you how long it might take. :roll:

You see this in your workunit list on the server.

9/14/2012 7:57:21 PM | RNA World | task cms_GA-p[e30-50MB_Lin64f]_1_Danio-rerio-(zebrafish)_CU651622.lin.EMBL_RF00028_Intron_gpI_1330438623_30212_14 resumed by user

This task is taking too much... 2306 hours ETA. And must finish on 9-22. Impossible. It's almost 100 days...

What can I do, besides aborting?

Regards,

Leo

This thread allows you to ask for the estimated extra time needed to finish workunits, and usually receive it, but only if you ask.

Shutting down the task and then resuming later requires special care - you must not reboot, install an update, or turn off the power. However, you can tell BOINC to suspend the workunit, as long as you do not shut down BOINC.

Some computers allow you to go into hibernate or sleep mode while the workunit is suspended, and later wake up with the full contents of the memory restored. That is about the only way you can safely shut the power off during the nearly 100 days of runtime, without going back to something within the first 5 minutes of the workunit.

This is a consequence of the current state of checkpoints for the application - you can recover from one checkpoint within the first 5 minutes of the workunit, or one within the last 5 minutes, but nowhere else.

I had another of the Danio-rerio workunits. Over 1,900,000 seconds.

If I understand that right, this "9-22" is the deadline. and the 100 days are the estimated runtime.

Post the workunit ID here and Yoyo will enhance the deadline so you will have your 100 days. The workunit ID can be found in your task list and in the task list of your host, both linked from your home page on the RNA world project server.

p.s.: I have such a fish too (Intron), 68 days already done, result at only 41% and still running (deadline already enhanced). If you manage to bring it through, it willl give you tons of credits :-) Yoyo installed a bonus system to encourage people to try to finish especially this nasty type of results.

Hi. You're correct, and thanks a lot! WU ID is 6039131. I see it has lots of errors, timeouts and abortions! I don't want to abort it nor to end in an error, but to finish it correctly, help the project, and get my bonus :)

BTW, I have suspended for the moment. I guess I need to resume it, and do a manual Update on the project to get the new ETA, right? Or will the task automagically updated the ETA (in next checkpoint or communication with project server?)

Regards,

Leo

Oh I forgot... I run Boinc at the office, so time of computing is about 10 hours continued on weekdays only. 2306 hours with that schedule (50 hours per week) is 46.12 weeks (322 "calendar days"). I understand ETA considers this since Boinc is smart enough to take all this into account and calculate the right ETA...?

Regards,

Leo
