    Minirosetta is currently running well on R@h with a 92% success rate but we would like to make it even better.

    If you have experienced errors while running minirosetta and would like to help, we ask that you download our application symbols file on windows platforms so that we can get debugging information. Ideally, the windows symstore utilities that Rom Walton added to boinc would take care of this and automatically retrieve the symbols from our site but it doesn\'t seem to be working as it did before so we are asking for your help.

    The file can be retrieved at:

    http://ralph.bakerlab.org/download/minirosetta_1.07_windows_intelx86.pdb

    Please place it in the ralph@home project directory of your BOINC installation usually located in \'c:/Program Files/BOINC/projects/ralph.bakerlab.org/\'

    Thanks in advance!

    edit: You can also place the symbols (pdb) file in the Rosetta@home project usually located in
    \'c:/Program Files/BOINC/projects/boinc,balerkab.org_rosetta/\'


    edit: The symbols file is 25MB.

      We can\'t help much when you don\'t give us WUs.

      I\'ve only had 19 WUs since 5 Feb on 16 cores.

        Please let us know if any of you are experiencing errors on either ralph or R@h and have downloaded the symbols file and placed it in the appropriate directories. I\'ll add more tests on ralph soon.

            Does the Linux application not need debugging information as well? Or is it working ok?
            I have recently done a couple that went ok on Linux, though much shorter in run time than my preferences.
            I have also reported already a problem with a \'mini\' WU that did not validate on my Windows machine, KSMarksPhych has also had the same problem, see following two threads

              You could of told us before we downloaded that the file is over 25 MB in size.
              What are the uploads likely to be?

                Oh, shoot! I really meant to but just forgot. Sorry about that. Yeah, the symbol file is pretty big but you just have to download it once for each application version update. sorry again.

                The validation bug was fixed in 1.07. There might be another validation bug but it is very very rare. I\'m looking into it.

                    ...and don\'t forget to enable the mini .exe application in your firewall so that it can send in any dump of the symbol table enabled by downloading the PDB file.

                      First problem (or two)

                      Ralph (or the mini app) does not appear to honor the runtime preference set in Ralph Preferences

                      It also does not even recognize the preferences were changed. I had to change the General Preferences for a Boinc manager Update to recognize a change had been made and download new preferences. I still don\'t know if it has the correct run-time preference set. I configured it for 1 hour, and the \"To Completion\" in the Boinc Manager shows 5:24:14 for all tasks.

                          Are you still not getting WUs?

                          All the computers I have attached to Ralph are getting work and have warm and happy CPUs.....Intel, AMD, Windows and Linux, 32-bit and 64-bit.

                            Is it just the \"To Completion\" in Boinc Manager or also the real runtime, which does not honour your prefs? What\'s your Duration Correction Factor? It seems that the run time estimate is \"overestimated\" and will be correct just when the DCF settles down.

                            For instance, my Pentium III has target run time 4 hours, DCF=0.15 and real runtime ~2:46 (average of 8 results, 2:18-3:31, 1-3 decoys). Other machine, C2D T7200 has target runtime 2 hours, DCF=0.29 and real runtime ~1:35 (average of 11 results 1:06-2:16, 1-6 decoys).

                              If your preferences did not get updated, then perhaps your runtime preference didn\'t update until later as well.

                              Your \"to completion\" really doesn\'t tell anyone if your runtime preference took effect or not. The behavior would be that the to completion time would be modified every 5 seconds, and that if your true preference were only an hour, then you\'d see like 25 seconds knocked off the completion time with each update.

                              Once your preference is know, BOINC still uses the time it took your last WU to complete and adjusts the runtime it was sent from Ralph. That\'s why you have to look at the rate at which it is declining.

                                    We are still not getting any trace information for debugging so if you are getting errors please download and install our symbols file. See the first post of this thread.

                                    If you use the NOD32 virus scanner w/ IMON (web access protection enabled), you can configure the web access protection to exclude the boinc.exe application from content filtering or add the download url(s) (ralph.bakerlab.org/download* for ralph and *.bakerlab.org/rosetta/download* for r@h) in the list of addresses to exclude. I haven\'t heard back from anyone at ESET about this issue.

                                    edit: be sure to submit the virus detection for review back to ESET so that they could hopefully include this as a false positive in their databases.

                                      we looked into that error and the only explanation is that the application can\'t see or open one of the input files. It is specific to your situation and is not a general error. without being able work on your computer, I can\'t really figure out what is happening. did a file get removed accidentally?

                                          I aborted this one on mini 1.07:
                                          It was stuck for over an hour at 92.912%

                                          work unit 665842



                                          If you suspect another stuck work unit can you let it keep going for a while? at least a few times greater than your cpu run time preference.

                                              This WU failed on my system.


                                              we looked into that error and the only explanation is that the application can\'t see or open one of the input files. It is specific to your situation and is not a general error. without being able work on your computer, I can\'t really figure out what is happening. did a file get removed accidentally?


                                              Noup, didn\'t touch anything. I didn\'t even notice the error until I visited my results page. Anyway, I haven\'t touch any files or even settings on my computer/preferences.
                                              Maybe Mr. Gates just didn\'t like that WU :)

                                                  let me know how it goes. hopefully it\'s not actually stuck.

                                                        Yes...you already show \"Successes last 24h\" on server status....just add \"Non-Successes last 24h\".

                                                        Pretty nice having all these WUs to crunch.

                                                          I put \"Failures last 24h\" on ralph. It can be client errors, invalid results, unsent results etc, i.e. everything else with a complete status. I am hesitant to add this to R@h. I\'d rather point out the positive than negative for the good of the project. I wonder what other users think.

                                                            I am hesitant to add this to R@h. I\'d rather point out the positive than negative for the good of the project. I wonder what other users think.

                                                            I think it is good to have at least the feeling, how good/bad it goes.

                                                            But understand your feeling concerning R@h.

My native language is not English, but I should think that your \"failures\" are much more than I personally define as such. Would another word - like noncompletions or whatever - suit everybody\'s purpose better?

                                                                      Have just been going through my results and have noticed that the returns (credits/cobblestones granted) on my Windows machine are very much lower than on my Linux machines.

                                                                      Some of the recent mini Rosetta \"score\" work units have dropped as low as 5 cr/h and with the failures (validation errors/computation errors/stuck wu\'s), I am getting about 11 cr/h average on an AMD Opteron 285 computer.

                                                                      The same spec computer (only hard drives and graphic cards are different), running Linux, is getting 14 or a bit more cr/h.

                                                                      I also noticed that the number of decoys generated with the Windows machine are a lot less than the number generated on Linux.

                                                                      Has anyone else noticed this?

                                                                                    edit: I\'ll also look into the optimizations being used.

                                                                                    If people are getting stuck mini jobs, please report them. We may have to add the same watch dog as in the old rosetta app to prevent jobs from being stuck for too long if this is an actual issue.

                                                                                        These are my last three Mini tasks (Linux)

                                                                                        CPU time (sec) claimed credit granted credit

                                                                                        In contrast, it seems like I get exactly what I claim on Beta tasks.


                                                                                        Not all linux machines get more credit than claimed.
                                                                                        My mobile AMD Athlon(tm) XP2500+ gets less than half of claimed, on Beta tasks it got more.
                                                                                        On my AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2000+ there isn\'t much difference between Mini and Beta tasks

                                                                                              For reference, this seems to be happening on Xubuntu 7.10 32-bit; processors range from Intel Pentium IIs and AMD K6s to Intel Pentium IVs and AMD Athlon XPs. I\'m not sure if this is a bug in the sense; it might just take a while to initialize. It could also be a setting on these computers, which is why I\'m asking if anyone else has seen this - I don\'t believe I ever saw this happen on 1.07, only now with 1.08 (although I could have easily missed seeing this with 1.07).

                                                                                                          When the time comes to update to 1.09, what is the procedure?

                                                                                                          Will a download of the .pdb file for 1.09 overwrite the 1.08 version?

                                                                                                          I have plenty of disk space, so I don\'t mind having excess files hanging around, but will the 1.08 symbols interfere with the 1.09 debugging?

                                                                                                            Will a download of the .pdb file for 1.09 overwrite the 1.08 version?

                                                                                                            I have plenty of disk space, so I don\'t mind having excess files hanging around, but will the 1.08 symbols interfere with the 1.09 debugging?

I\'ve noticed it too, it is already waiting (and compressed to 18MB) two days long in my projects\' folders, to be paired with any bugy apps. I\'ve just got the first 3 pieces today (but they finished healthy, again nothing to report about)-;
