I beleive that was an effort to take out the ratings on the new forum code update but its only half been done from the looks of it

No issues at all so far, that was a very quick upgrade to the code seen as though it was only suggested a few hours ago :)

Edit: If you don\'t have a test account to try the new code on you know what you can do to my account on here to test it!

Glad there is a vote of support, the AMS is going to be big, I only want this project to be up there with the rest,

Maybe upgrade this server?? Test it make sure it works then port it over to ROSETTA?

More info here for people who aren\'t sure what a AMS is

Have posted this at Rosetta too

I would like to know when AMS support will be made available on RALPH & Rosetta, this would mean upgrading the server to enable support for the AMS.

The majority of projects have already upgraded and there is only a small minority who have not done so as yet, this project & RALPH been one of them.

So please do this upgrade ASAP!

Thanks
Dave

Some of the projects cannot use the newest BOINC versions without upgrading their servers and or applications


This is untrue for all the latest BOINC clients, they work off the Server Version 5, so every project will run off 5.3.28 with no problems

Before people perform an upgrade to their BOINC software, could you please provide some information as to the impact this may have on other projects they may be running. Many of the users are running multiple projects, and this kind of an upgrade could have serious implications for those other efforts.

In particular people running CPDN and Predictor may have some issues.



There are no implications I upgrade my BOINC client whenever ROM and the team bring out a new version, to help test if for bugs, in the many months I have been upgrading to various clients I have never had a trashed WU.

Besides if people wish to help RALPH solve the 1% bug they have no choice this is the only BOINC client that handles what RALPH needs for the error reporting

Posted 23 Mar 2006 by Profile UBT - Halifax--lad
Post:
I would assume all WU\'s are to test for bugs and fixes rather than science as Rosetta does the science and RALPH is set upto test things.

Have you got BOINC 5.3.28?? as that is needed for the new app of RALPH

Posted 12 Mar 2006 by Profile UBT - Halifax--lad
Post:
well if that was the case would it not have errored out straight after the benchmarks??

But seen as though BOINC left it in memory at the benchmark that can\'t be the reason for the failure can it?



Mike,

Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought I saw a post from you before indicating that you were running a BOINC version later than 5.2.13. If so you are correct that the error makes no sense. If you are running 5.2.13, then the Work Unit was removed from memory when the benchmark ran and that is why it errored out.

And what I got with the first Wis was \"Client error Computing after 12,087.8 sec or about 4 hours in totally wasted crunching time with no CS.

And it\'s not my fault, I get completed Wis for all other projects.

I\'m detaching and I\'m out of here


This is a ALPHA Project & errors are to be expected. In fact thats what we are running the Wu\'s for, to check for errors. If all your worried about is your CS then you would most definitely be better off at another Project ...



This same person has sulked in a few threads on Alpha/BETA test sites, I don\'t think the user understands that these type of projects are usually fault finding sessions for WU\'s and not a site to collect shiny points.

So thats one less point collector here, leaves the rest of the work to us

The way to solve it is to manually do a benchmark when a RALPH or Rosetta WU is not in the cache if at all possible

Post:
they are not just the same in nature but they do EXACTLY the same!

They predict how Prots fold...or do they use different algorithms?

a dumb waste of computing time...


They do no where near the same, go over to Rosetta and read the forums all the info is there

It kindof defeats the purpose to disable the process, if I WANT to run it yeah?



Suspend the project for 1 minute 20 seconds then

Double check your preempt in memory setting on the preferences on this project, for some reason mine was set to No when I joined up, usually it automatically says Yes on other projects I join, that may be why it was removed from memory


\"Leave in memory when preempted\" is a BOINC GLOBAL default, that \"propagates\" across all projects. BOINC uses the config from the project with with the newest time-stamp.

i.e. if you run SETI/Rosetta/RALPH and change RALPH today, those RALPH settings (e.g. \"Leave app in mem\" to NO) will be used by all other projects.

It wasn\'t quite clear to me too, and I had to look for this \"detail\".


Yes I know that but it defaults to No on this project so people need to be aware of that and possibly set RALPH up on a different preference (homes, school or work) with preempt set to No, that way it wont interfere with other project preferences

I would say YES Please, they want to test on as many different platforms as possible, so your a welcome edition

This unit errored out when I took Sztaki off No New Work.........it seemed to be dumped out of the memory for some reason even though I\'m set up to keep apps in memory.
