1) Message boards : RALPH@home bug list : Scheduler Disabled? (Message 5046)
Posted 22 Jan 2010 by zombie67 [MM]
Post:
1) On the front page, it shows "Scheduler disabled". Any ETA for a fix?

2) Also, on the detail page, it shows every box as GREEN. Even though the Scheduler box says "Disabled". That box should be a red color based on how other projects do it.

Yes, I understand that the credit system changed back to pure benchmark. I noticed that too. But the unique method that used to be used here (and still used on Rosetta) is also benchmark based. It just averages with all the previous claims for that particular test. So in theory, as long as we don't mess with the benchmarks, the awarded credits should be about the same either way.

Edit: I'm guessing the method changed back to the default when the server upgrade happened.

I have been doing both Ralph and Rosetta for quite some time now (was even number 1 in Ralph at one time), and I have noticed on Ralph over the last number of batch jobs that the Granted Credit equals the Claimed Credit and seems based on the Boinc Benchmark system.

Why has the Credit system that Rosetta changed to and Ralph was also changed to 6 months to a year ago now reverting back to Benchmark ???

Based on this I am no longer getting due value for the time I spend crunching a work unit.


How so? Your machines claim based on benchmarks. If your benchmarks are not tampered with, then you are getting exactly what you are due. You can't just look at run time. Some machines are faster than others. So a fast machine running 4 hours will have done more work than a slower machine running 4 hours. So the faster machine should be awarded more credits, even though the crunch time is equal.

If you have

1) 64 bit processor (any core 2 based CPU, including the Xeons)
*and*
2) leopard
*and*
3) 6.2.something+ BOINC client
*then*

BOINC sees that you machine is 64 bit, and asks for 64 bit apps. The problem is that the current RALPH BOINC server is so ancient, it doesn\'t know what \'x86_64-apple-darwin\' is.

RALPH needs to update their servers. Not only for this issue, but for security issues too.

Thanks for the info! Was this ever a problem for the Mac app? Or only windows?

Wow. A week now, and still no response from the project...at all.

It\'s odd that they ask for our participation, yet do not participate themselves.

Alpha testing is a two-way street.

Post:
well that should answer your first question, posted by the staff, in this topic.
and well the second question im not aware of, so maybe you should some OSX users.


I am on the list, and I read it the day it was posted.

It answers neither question. The changes that DA made to BOINC were basically a work around, so that the flaw in the RALPH app would not longer cause problems with BOINC.

I\'m asking if the fix to the RALPH app has been made yet.

I would still appreciate answers from the project, rather than guessing.

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

Was this ever a problem with OSX version?

Of course, but that doesn\'t answer the questions.

Right. 5.10.38 is not a fix to the problem. It\'s a work-around. The problem is with the application, which is where it needs to be fixed.

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.

Nothing yet. It has not yet started.

One thing is not clear to me...

Is this really a windows-only problem? If we are talking about read-only files unable to be deleted, doesn\'t that hit all OS?

I would use BBCode to make the link clickable, but doing so prevents it from getting past the SPAM filter. The new spam filter functionality needs to be revised, or removed.

It would seem that BBCode URL tags are now inoperative. Every time I attempt to use one, the message gets classified as SPAM and refuses to post.

It has to do with the ratio of text to URL. Try appending a bunch of garbage text to your post, and the URL should make it through the SPAM filter. Odd that you need to add SPAM to get past the SPAM filter... =;^)
