Message 3607 - Posted: 14 Jan 2008, 7:02:24 UTC

This program is probablely bugged, when these wu start the boinc manager freeze, and dont work . the 2 process of boinc stay in memory, they start calculate and stop imediately the wus. No possibility to use the boinc manager completely blocked And no work are donne.

The only solution i found to recover boinc is :
to kill the 2 process boinc in task manager of XP, and
to modify the file client_stat.xml to add in the <project> section of ralph and rosetta project after <send_job_log>0</send_job_log>
the line <suspended_via_gui/>
to stop the project.

The right will be to stop rosetta mini 1.03 wu, or wait to new version 1.04.

I saw the same thing happen on one of my machines and had to use task manager to kill BOINC and all subprocess.
Strange thing is the Rosetta min 1.03 task did not produce an error log in BOINC and seems to have restarted/running ok. I\'ll keep watch on my machines to see what happens when or if they complete.

Message 3613 - Posted: 14 Jan 2008, 14:39:19 UTC

Shortly after starting my Rosetta Mini 1.03, Kaspersky Antivirus started to consume 100% CPU for more than 2 minutes (no idea, whether Rosetta Mini triggered it, or something else, I\'d bet it was it), approx. until Rosetta Mini exited. A bit later all other Boinc (5.1035) applications exited too (possibly missed heartbeat?), Boinc Manager and client were left unresponsive, client did not respond to GUI RPCs. I\'ve tried to start another Boinc Manager, but it was left somewhere in memory and the GUI did not appear.

After being left 3/4 hour untouched, finally both Managers suddenly appeared and the client started the apps again.

Last lines from stdoutdae.txt:

Because I\'ve left Boinc running, after the long delay it could finally flush its internal buffers and output some additional error lines. These came then after resurrection:

My result 733546 produced BOINC Windows Runtime Debugger output instead.

Other experiences in another thread.
This app did nasty things to 2/3 of my hosts, so Ralph is set to NNW. Please will the project people say when we allow work again without risk of running the toxic \"mini\" app? Thanks

I have had it with the RALPH@home project!
The \"Rosetta min 1.03\" app crashed my whole PC - I have just spent 5+ hours rebuilding it from install disks and backups.
I have detached all 3 of my machines from the project as a result and will not reattach.

Message 3616 - Posted: 15 Jan 2008, 15:54:46 UTC

My Ralph\'s \"\\slots\\2\\\" contained a folder \"minirosetta_database\\\", containing another 69 subfolders and 240 files, total 634 kB. After start, Boinc client seemed to be busy with these files looong after having started. One minute after start and unsuccessful attempts to connect, the Manager then asked whether to try to connect again...

And the client was still checking Ralph\'s files. A hour long...

It was enough to remove the \"..\\Boinc\\slots\\2\\minirosetta_database\\\" tree, everything was then fine.

We are currently looking into this bug. In order to debug this new app, we will have to send out more work units. Sorry for all the troubles.

Actually a harmless issue with remarkable consequences :-)

The minirosetta app in Ralph unzipped an archive into its slot directory. This archive (accidentally) included some .svn directories (Subversion stuff) whose contents were flagged as read-only.

When the job finished or was aborted, and the BOINC client tried to clean out the slot directory, the delete of each of these files would fail. The client would wait for 5 seconds and try again (it does this because sometimes files are locked temporarily by virus checkers or other disk-scan apps).
This would happen for each file, resulting in a 10-20 minute period during which the client and Manager appear hung.

I think... who is willing to continue testing Rosetta mini: if Boinc will hang next time, go to \"..\\Boinc\\slots\\*\\minirosetta_database\\\" and delete all read-only files in the subdirectories. (Actually just in \"..\\.svn\\\" subdirectories, but maybe it is the same, if just one Rosetta mini WU was running.) Boinc will immediately continue its work.

Message 3627 - Posted: 16 Jan 2008, 0:20:03 UTC - in response to Message 3624.  

When I said \"we\", I mainly meant David Anderson. I had to create more workunits for David Anderson to debug the client. Once he was able to get a work unit, he responded right away with the cause and checked in a fix. There are some non-boinc client related issues with mini also.

If you are experiencing this problem, manually remove the minirosetta_database directory in the slots directory.


This is David Anderson\'s reply:

\"Here\'s what was happening:

The minirosetta app in Ralph unzipped an archive into its slot directory.
This archive (accidentally) included some .svn directories
(Subversion stuff) whose contents were flagged as read-only.

When the job finished or was aborted,
and the BOINC client tried to clean out the slot directory,
the delete of each of these files would fail.
The client would wait for 5 seconds and try again
(it does this because sometimes files are locked temporarily
by virus checkers or other disk-scan apps).
This would happen for each file, resulting in a 10-20 minute period
during which the client and Manager appear hung.

I made two changes that fix this (and hopefully avoid similar
problems in the future) as follows:

1) if a file delete fails with error ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED,
use SetFileAttributes() to clear the read-only flag, then try again.
2) Don\'t use the 5-second retry mechanism when clearing out
slot directories. These can contain unbounded numbers of files,
and this can lead to long periods where the client appears hung.

Rom, please back-port this to 5.10

It is safe to say, as soon as the WU will start, it\'s enough to reset read-only flags on all files in the minirosetta_database folder tree? Boinc client is then able to handle them correctly.

After a complete failure with the minirosetta I deleted the database as advised and now back in control of my computer and haven\'t lost the Rosetta jobs I was working on.

I thought something was going wrong when there were no graphics and it failed after 8%.

I hope next time is less exiting!!

Yeow ... talk about ugly. I had to abort the two mini WU\'s I had (sorry) to keep everything from locking up. But I couldn\'t have done it without Barraud Denis\'s advice (thanks!):
add in the <project> section of ralph and rosetta project after <send_job_log>0</send_job_log>
the line <suspended_via_gui/>
to stop the project


And I guess some people don\'t understand that Alpha means Alpha:
I have detached all 3 of my machines from the project as a result and will not reattach

Too bad.

However, it\'s nice to know we\'re a fairly competent group of people and can get around the occasional challenge!

Those \'mini\'s stuffed my computer. I have spent over two hours trying to get things going again.
I tried restarting Boinc Manager, this failed.
I tried to reboot and then start BM, this failed (it rebooted twice before Windows started).
I tried to reinstall Boinc 5.10.35 but this failed.
I tried to install Boinc 5.8.16 and this worked until I added back my projects, then it failed.
I totally removed and reinstalled Boinc (various versions) all failed.
Removed again and downloaded 5.10.38, amazingly this worked and all files kept going and are still running.

I will check those other suggestions above to get rid of ralph mini.

This is possibly the worst Ralph release to date.

With 5.10.38 you are done.

...and without 5.10.38, you just have to follow Pepo\'s tip to remove the read-only attributes.

It \"stuffed\" my computer as well. I run Windows. Symptom was that it seemed to hang BOINC Manager, it was no longer communicating and nothing was running. A restart didn\'t clear up the situation (because the slots directories were in an invalid state).

The minirosetta app in Ralph unzipped an archive into its slot directory.
This archive (accidentally) included some .svn directories
(Subversion stuff) whose contents were flagged as read-only.


Has this been fixed in the mini tasks and/or application yet?

Was this ever a problem with OSX version?
