1) Message boards : Number crunching : WU freeze (Message 1168)
Posted 16 Jun 2019 by Profile marsinph
Post:
Hello,
on my host
https://sech.me/boinc/Amicable/results.php?hostid=75988
Usually my WU runs in about 4200-4500 sec.
But all WU received today, freeze.
In slot directory, no any change after some hours !
CPU charge : nothing (task manager )
Because those WU takes all my 8Cores, why to let run something who nothing do ???
Sorry, I cancel all the WU.
You will see it in my host.
But I would like to know why !!!
Best regards

Hello,
Only because it is a wide team !
It is very powerfull.
By taking over from original fouder, you became wide team founder.
With result your mail was associated with the CPID of team (who not change).
So Boinc discovered the "new"
By deleting and recreating, the association was still in database.
If you had wait at least 24 hours, (time for synchro/replication) between Boinc and project, it did not happen.

As far I see your team has ID 2136 (on boincstats : team ID165954) with two users : you and a other user (ID11342 on this project.
On Boincstat 159 members with you at top with a total credit about 2.3G.

Be also attentive that it is a second team called "Team England" (without " (boinc) ID : 77969
With the same link to team internet site (england.forum5.com) !?
But this second team did nothing the latest 40 days !
And have only 5 users (inactive) !
Total credits : 617.188.

Probably the same team (old and new) !

Don't mix Tmax and Tjmax. Tjmax for i7 2600k is 100C. It starts throttling at 90C. 75C is totally safe. If your processor reports 75C, it's a temperature of its internal sensor, temperature at the heat spreader (which must not be higher than Tmax) will be much less than 75C.



Dear Sergei.
Thank you for following. Very few Admin do it like you. Congratulations.

I am not sure about 2600K. I also not mix. At 100°C CPU smelt (junction fusion T°).
Intel recomend to not go above 72°C. So I will not let my CPU go above the limit.
If I am located at north (south) pole, no problem. But at end of the year I move to Afirica.
I search the best cooling solution. Be assured.

Then the very hgh CPU temperature increase also the temperature of mainboard !!!
At 60°C ASUS mainboard go on warning mode.
The CPU temperature spread all over inside host.
And be sure, all my host are fully correctly cooled. With correct air flow : one push of 18Cm in front (54CFM)
One 12Cm ( 30CFM) above fan extractor. One rear 9cm extractor. And again inside a 9cm directly on GPU (front to rear direction)
And two 12cm on CPU fan. Of course in same direction !!! I am not stupid (I think)
No, there is no dust on fan !!! At least twice a month, I clean dust.
I will take no any risk to destroy my hosts !!!
This happens only with your project !
Why you not adapt ???
Look my projects, also the projects of my team. We are serious.
Kind and friendly regards from Belgium.
Philippe.

75°C is normal temperature for CPU, nothing bad will happen to it. Amicable runs at the lowest possible priority, so even if it uses all cores, the system should be responsive.


Hello,
Please check
https://ark.intel.com/products/52214/Intel-Core-i7-2600K-Processor-8M-Cache-up-to-3_80-GHz
TMax in Celsius : 72.6°C !!!
On all my "mid range" mainboard (ASUS) T-Max is 70°C. With result that MB put itself in safe mode.
75°C is not a normal temperature !

On all my hosts, with my special cooler, it never go above 55°C !
With the very hot weather in Europe, sometimes it go to 60°C

I see in task manager it is low priority. But it use 100% of cores and with full load (charge).

Is it possible to reduce manually the CPU charge ?
Best regards

Hello Sergei.
Sorry, I had not read about no limitation.
Little precision,
My hosts runs all 24/24, 7/7,.......
No overclocking.
On all project, there are 8 simultanous CPU WU and one GPU WU.
Temperature never exceed 55°C. Normal with such load.
So it is not a problem of my cooling (Fan artic Freezer 33 : TDP 320W ( for a thermal CPU of 95W)
On this host, I manually reduced CPU speed from 3.4Ghz to 3.0Ghz..
When I run one of your task, I also disable GPU, but temperature increase to 70/75°C !!!
And it take all ressources of host who become almost unusable (except task manager).


To everyone , i have tested watercooling ( Not very efficient on (very high CPU charge,
reaction time is to low.

You have 4 cores per WU, but you also need to set "Max # jobs" to 1. Otherwise BOINC will start 2 WUs that will take all 8 cores.

P.S. Your CPU shouldn't overheat when running Amicable even at 100% on all cores. It doesn't even use SSE, it's only integer math on Amicable. Check your CPU cooler.




Hello,
I repeat,
It run only one WU at the time ! At this time, I have only one WU on host. So it can not run two WU
The problem is that project do not respect limitations of 75% of CPU time and so take all ressources of host.

If I reduce the available core, it crash.

This crash is fixed already, try again.



Hello Sergei,
Thank you.
I forgot to also write that I have set a limit of 4 cores in project preferences.
Of course also in computing preferences (75%) and in my BAM (local preferences,
It nothing change. the WU take all cores at 100% load with result of overheat of CPU.
https://sech.me/boinc/Amicable/workunit.php?wuid=6732795.
estimated commputing : 2h30

It seems project not validate the limits of computation. On all other project, all WU run at 75%. Why not here ?
Best regards from the first belgian team admin.

Hello,
Also the same for me. the WU use 100% of CPU.
My BAM settings are set à 75% CPU time.
I run one WU at the time, but it use all cores. So impossible to run other projects at the same time.
If I reduce the available core, it crash.
It not respect the limits. It is the only problem !!!

Hello,
see my host 41377 (8Gb) and 34854 (16Gb RAM).
All CPU WU immediately finishs . In fact they not start !!!
What happens ?

Post:
Hello Sergei,
I undertand the reasons. But perhaps is it posible to send amount WU depending RAC, or average turnaround time ?
On SETI it are 100WU/GPU and 100/CPU.

If I disconnect my host more than 10 hours, I run out work
I repeat and agree the reasons of limitation of 20WU. But .....
I have a modest mid-range GPU and mid-range CPU.
Some of us have very high end GPU. Si they runs WU very fast.
Probably after 2 hours all WU are done ! I project is few hours down , we can not more crunch.
It i why I insist to reconsider understable limitations dependeing RAS and/or avg turnaround time
Best regards and thanks for answer

I run oneWU each 30 min.
So, I only can store for less than 10 hours.
Is it a limitation ? I can undertand uch wazy, but with my CR and RAC, I think i crunch enouh to how I am not a "ghost", or someone who try and the delete without crunching.
Of coure my preference (general and project) are set on 2 days. to not overload server.
I see some host have a lot of WU. What do I wrong ???
