State: Postponed: VM job unmanageable

#1 Ungelesener Beitrag von robertmiles » 10.06.2021 05:30

I just got a task, and it's in a state I've never seen before.

cmsearch VM (VirtualBox) 1.0.2 1.19 (vbox64)
cmsvm_GA-p[e20-30MB_Lin64f]_1_Ozyzias_latipes (Japanese-medaka) more not copied
State: Postponed: VM job unmanageable, restarting later.

From log file:

6/9/2021 1:31:58 AM | | Starting BOINC client version 7.16.11 for windows_x86_64
6/9/2021 1:31:59 AM | | VirtualBox version: 6.1.12

Does this mean something unexpected? For example, is the VirtualBox version incompatible with this task?

This workunit has already failed for a long list of users, so is the workunit faulty?

I've found a procedure that restarts such tasks.

Shut down BOINC Restart Windows. Start BOINC.

More inconvenient than the XXL tasks, but it looks like it will work if I check often enough.

This is actually a regular XXL task.
The message reported is new to me, however.

Robert,

1) Your discussion about your task, should have been done using a new thread, instead of hijacking the "cross validation" thread. If you'd like to continue the discussion, please start a new thread.

2) Your Task is in fact a VM task. The work-unit link is here: https://www.rnaworld.de/rnaworld/workun ... id=6330896 ... and it should complete successfully if you can keep it running long enough, with as few interruptions as possible. I should know - I already completed it, and you are my wingman on this workunit.

3) "Postponed: VM job unmanageable" happens when BOINC loses communications with the VirtualBox executables that control the VM. The exact cause is usually unknown. And yes, restarting the PC can help.

4) There is a "progress.txt" file within the slots folder for that task. If you open it to take a peek, you should hopefully see it progressing. Immediately close that text file after you've peeked, to not interfere with the task. You can keep an eye on that percentage value over time, to know that the task is working. Note that a value of 0.98765 is the highest it will go (and it will show 98.765% in the UI), but that DOES NOT it's stuck. You can just look at the modified date/time of that progress.txt file, and if it's updating every half hour, it is still progressing normally.

5) It took me 228.5 days of processing time, to complete that one. I estimate it will take you about that long (since amazingly my CPU that completed it is the same model as yours) or it may take longer (since I carefully set an overclock)... so... try to keep your PC as stable as possible, and good luck!

...I split the thread accordingly.
