Message 49817 - Posted: 8 Jul 2018 | 15:11:46 UTC
Last modified: 8 Jul 2018 | 16:29:29 UTC

I'm preparing some infrastructure for the Windows 64bit CPU app. There are some beta WUs out. They don't to actual calculations (for that we have to wait for the nontrivial psi4 port), but they do test the distribution system, dependencies, and so on.

Some are already coming back successful. The setup, if it works, will be completely native, not require VMs, nor the "linux subsystem". It will expand both the type of tasks we can distribute, and the available machines, of course.

In particular, I'd like to know
- whether it behaves well with "normal" unprivileged installations
- if there is an annoying "Anaconda" icon installed in the start menu

Thanks!

There weren't many (approx 300), all of them in the "beta" queue. I need to fix simultaneous starts there too.

I got a few beta but they failed, looks like it was installing Python and minconda while trying to run another WU at the same time.

hopefully next round is good.

Installing python (miniconda actually) is normal. It should be contained in their own boinc directories. Also multiple installations should wait for each other. There is something else I'm investigating.

Did you get any "visible" changes in the system?

Thanks

I see the anaconda option in the start menu, but non of the task actually worked.

if I click it it does not work as path is wrong it has

C:\%windir%\System32\cmd.exe "/K" C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.gpugrid.net\miniconda\Scripts\activate.bat C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.gpugrid.net\miniconda

but %windir% = C:\windows so it actually resolves to c:\c\windows.

I see that it trys to update conda version but it didn't work as the reported version is still 4.5.4

I see these 2 errors:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\ProgramData\BOINC\slots\3\qmml3\lib\site-packages\psi4\__init__.py", line 55, in <module>
from . import core
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "run.py", line 13, in <module>
import psi4
File "C:\ProgramData\BOINC\slots\3\qmml3\lib\site-packages\psi4\__init__.py", line 60, in <module>
raise ImportError("{0}".format(err))

I can see the deepdiff, jsonpickle, psi4 in the pkgs folder.

this was most common causes of error. one was

C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.gpugrid.net\miniconda\Scripts\conda install -m -y -p C:\ProgramData\BOINC\slots\1\qmml3 --override-channels -c gpugridbeta -c defaults --file requirements.txt

Can someone give an eye on the cpu% of windows tasks? In particular, if you run only one task, does it limit itself to 4 threads?

Just out of curiosity, my Linux PC has been receiving Quantum Chemistry, beta test v3.32 (mt). PC number 258077. Is that supposed to happen? I was under the impression that the beta test tasks were for windows only.

Same for me, but they ran OK, so they must be for Linux.

I just picked up some of the beta test 3.33 tasks on two different Windows machines. After 10+ minutes, it looks like the tasks are only using one thread.

After 15+ minutes, one of the machines got this error message:

Debug Error!
Program: C:\ProgramData\BOINC\slots\0\qmml3\pythin.exe
abort() has been called
(Press Retry to debug the application)

Let me know if you need more information.

[Edit] After 22 minutes, the second machine received the same error and the task aborted.

There are no "device drivers" needed. The app is CPU only: it might crash, but shouldn't affect your PC.

The root error is here


PSIO_ERROR: unit = 97, errval = 10
PSIO_ERROR: 10 (lseek failed)


your machine appears to be the only one with this specific failure. Do you have space in your HDD, or other uncommon setups (e.g. FAT instead of NTFS)?

The error happened on two different computers. Machine 476647 has 100 GB disk space available to BOINC. HDD is formatted as NTFS. I can't think of anything that is non-standard.

Both machines have VirtualBox installed, but that is something that is encountered often in the volunteer computing world.

Let me know if you have more questions.

I see the same on 2 computers, one has 238GB free with boinc allowed to use upto 218GB.


The other has 366GB free with same settings.

I clicked ignore and it seemed to do something, but not full CPU load.

If you receive beta WUs for linux, the you will get them for windows too. I had to cancel all outstanding ones because of a nasty bug (which raised a debug dialog).

NOTE: This should be in the Linux section, not Windows, so you can move it, though I expect it would apply to either.

This one failed with "196 (0xc4) EXIT_DISK_LIMIT_EXCEEDED".
http://www.gpugrid.net/result.php?resultid=18977559

The BointTasks message is:

Aborting task 1718_36_33_32_50_14f550fc_n00001-SDOERR_SELE6-0-1-RND8308_2: exceeded disk limit: 61716.49MB > 57220.46MB


However, I retain 96 GB free in my root partition, and the BOINC startup message says: "max disk usage: 184.49 GB".

So apparently that limit is coming from somewhere else(?).

any progress with the planned QC app for Windows?

If I look at the Project Status page, it currently shows the following:

Long runs (= GPU tasks) unsent: 1,550; in progress: 3,634; users: 1,002
Quantum Chemistry unsent: 179,513; in progress: 550; users: 71

this shows a vast imbalance, the reason for which is that QC CPU tasks are still available for Linux users only.

I am running SuSE Leap 42.3 on my main Linux box, and Leap 15.0 on my HP laptop. The kernel of Leap 15.0 is more advanced and is equal to that of the Enterprise version of SuSE Linux, SLES.It is also being updated regularly, while updates of 42.3 seem finished. But I have most of my tools on it, including Kaffeine, and it runs GPUGRID tasks, both CPU and GPU since the box has a GTX 750 Ti GPU board.

Thanks. What distro is it? Is it updated (i.e. security patches?). The other problem seems to be that the failure was not seen as such, and thus restarted.

After installing nVidia driver 411.70 on my Windows 10 PC and a Windows 1809 upgrade, my first GPU task completed and validated on it. So far GPU tasks were validated only on my Linux box with SuSE Leap 42.3 and a GTX 750 Ti.

After installing nVidia driver 411.70 on my Windows 10 PC and a Windows 1809 upgrade ...

your Win10 1809 Upgrade installed the NVIDIA 411.70 driver? Mine did NOT. I made the upgrade on one of my machines today, but there is still the 388... driver (on the other hand, the CPU usage values of the various apps in the Task Manager are no longer shown correctly; from what I was told: a known bug).

Thanks. What distro is it? Is it updated (i.e. security patches?). The other problem seems to be that the failure was not seen as such, and thus restarted.


Fedora 28 with security update.
Now i return to Mint....

Their priorities are most likely scientific. There is the side we don't see, the biology/chemistry side. The computation is only half of the puzzle.

It is not your setting. The project needs to change it.
But now they are fixing the problem by going back to the smaller ones; see Stefan's post on the subject.

Just now I tried to download QC tasks and/or QC beta tasks for windows.

However, none are available (according to a notice in the BOINCS Manager).

So all the "unsent" tasks shown on the Server Status Page are still for Linux only?
I thought that there are some available now for Windows.

Take 3 for test.
If I understand correctly, calculation progress for these WUs does not display correctly. How much time in average this WUs consuming?

P.S. Such WUs producing quite heavy load on storage subsystem. When 3 of them simultaneously writing data on disk, this generates a stream of almost 1 Gigabyte! o_O (~ 900 MiB/ps).
Without high performance SSD, it is better not to run more than one such WU : )


Upd.

One of them already died -_-

Only WU Quantum Chemistry, beta test 3.33 (mt) is currently available for Windows. I think on server status page they are Quantum Chemistry, beta test.
You probably need to check your preferences:

Use CPU - yes
Run test applications? - yes
Quantum Chemistry (CPU, beta): yes

Thanks for the hint, before I had forgotten to put "Run test applications" on "yes".
I did that now, and one tasks was downloaded and got startet.

What makes me wonder though is that after a few minutes the progress percentage in the BOING Manager got stuck at 1.098%, although the time is progressing, and the Windows task manager shows that Python is running (and using about 214MB RAM).
What I just noticed is that whereas under "remaining time", before some 6 hours where shown; now, about 13 minutes later, the value for "remaining time" has gone up to about 18 hours.
Is this okay, or is the tasks faulty?

now, 20 minutes after start, the progress bar is still at 1.098%, the remaining time is shown as 1 day + 6 hours, and Python is using 3.194MB RAM (which is not a problem yet at this point).

As far as I've noticed, all these WU behave this way.

I have finished a bunch of them and their computation time varies from 0,5 to 3 hours. At average 1,5 hours.

11 of 14 of these WU completed successfully. Failed WUs have the same error.

so far, all 3 tasks which got downloaded failed with this exit_disk_limit_exceeded error after about 3900 - 4800 seconds.

I do understand that these tasks are beta, so one cannot expect that they succeed.
Maybe I am lucky though and one of these tasks will be successful eventually.

As a result, from 30 tasks taken only 14 successfully completed.
There are no more test tasks, so I continue crunching WCG.

Since I had started with these tasks yesterday, 20 were processed so far, out of which only 2 succeeded.
Hence, I now stopped downloading them, it doesn't make any sense.

What I don't understand is:

13.01.2019 07:46:22 | GPUGRID | Aborting task 194r20-TONI_TST10-0-1-RND3322_3: exceeded disk limit: 41204.15MB > 28610.23MB

so why is there not sufficient disk limit set by the project to begin with ???

Since I had started with these tasks yesterday, 20 were processed so far, out of which only 2 succeeded.
Hence, I now stopped downloading them, it doesn't make any sense.

What I don't understand is:

13.01.2019 07:46:22 | GPUGRID | Aborting task 194r20-TONI_TST10-0-1-RND3322_3: exceeded disk limit: 41204.15MB > 28610.23MB

so why is there not sufficient disk limit set by the project to begin with ???


This means your file size was 41204.15MB, and the limit is 28610.23MB, not the other way around.

The trick to this, is to find which file contains the limit and change it to a larger number and this task would have finished successfully.

Honestly, I have no idea.

I attempted to go to the …/BOINC/slots directory, where there are several directories named 0 ,1, 2, 3 etc. Find the one has the minicoda / wrapper files, and edit with notepad the bonic_task_state.xml file. It should open and look something like this:

<active_task>
<project_master_url>http://www.gpugrid.net/</project_master_url>
<result_name>4534r1-TONI_TST10-0-1-RND0591_4</result_name>
<checkpoint_cpu_time>30.765630</checkpoint_cpu_time>
<checkpoint_elapsed_time>128.215471</checkpoint_elapsed_time>
<fraction_done>0.010989</fraction_done>
<peak_working_set_size>149794816</peak_working_set_size>
<peak_swap_size>139321344</peak_swap_size>
<peak_disk_usage>575110930</peak_disk_usage>
</active_task>

Edit the peak disk usage number to something larger and save the file. In both attempts I failed. WUs errored out. Maybe I should have bumped the numbers higher. I added a zero at the end. The last disk space usage before the crash was over 44 gigs.

Give it try, if you like.

Something similar to this, was done in the past for oversize output files. It worked.

thanks for the hints.
I remember a similar procedure for LHC/ATLAS tasks sometime last year, when some of them had a "exit_disk_limit_exceeded" problem.
however, to get this done was somehow tricky; from what I remember, one had to do something like stopping the task, even shutting down BOINC, and then increasing the figure (by quite an amount).

However, at this point I cannot try anything, since no betas are available.

Message 51322 - Posted: 15 Jan 2019 | 12:57:18 UTC

half an hour ago, I got a few tasks downloaded. So let's see whether they will succeed this time, or fail again.

However, what I notice is although my settings in the app_config.xml are for 2-core (which is shown in brackets in the BOINC manager), the Windows task-manager shows that only 1 core is being used by Python. Any explanation for this discrepancy?

the first task from today got finished successfully after some 4.250 secs, which is very nice :-)
http://gpugrid.net/result.php?resultid=20386975

Right thereafter, the next one got started, and again, although it should be 2-core, only one core is used.

Does anyone else make the same experience?

That's because the WUs are from the current batch, not the next batch. You lucked out and got 3 good ones.

yesterday, another 3 tasks were downloaded, all of them failed. Total wasted CPU time about 20.000 secs.
Obviously, all these tasks are still from the current faulty batch.

Question for Toni: Why are these tasks not withdrawn? And when will the next batch with the increased disk limit be sent out?
I hate to waste that much of my CPU work.

Actual, it is better not to cancel this batch, and let it run its course, until the WUs all become "Too many errors (may have bug)" WUs, because they will in time disappear from being posted. If you cancel them before that, the WUs will stay posted forever. It is a fault in the system. You may have noticed errors from years ago, still posted.

okay, I understand.

So, the question (for me) now is: how many more WUs are in the current batch?
Will they be sent out during one more week, one more month ... ?

And when will the new batch be launched?

As said before: I do understand that this is beta, and WUs can fail.
But knowing that due to the too law disk limit setting in the current batch most of the WUs are bound to fail, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me to download them and waste quite some CPU time.

Although no "unsent" tasks were shown in the Project Status Page this morning, my PC downloaded 3 WUs.
Again, all 3 failed from the disk limit error, after a total runtime of about 19.000 secs.
Failure rate: 100% :-(((

Hence, it would really be great to know for how much longer these faulty WUs from the "old" batch will be sent out, and when the new batch will be published.

I am giving up now and switched them off in the settings. It's a waste of CPU time.

Perhaps Toni or someone else from the GPUGRID team could post a short message when the new batch which is supposed not to contain this disk limit error will be available.

I find it a pity that the GPUGRID people obviously don't invest more efforts in developping a well functioning Windows app for QC.
By this, they forego huge computational power.

A look at the project status page shows well what I talk about:
presently, there are some 175.000 unsent tasks for which only 100 Linux users are taking care of.
From what can be seen when when enough GPU tasks available, there are about 1000 users crunching them, mostly Windows of course.
I imagine that crunching CPU tasks on Windows would attract even more people, perhaps the double number or even more (even if the number would be only 1000, this would mean a 10-fold of what it is now under Linux).

So, instead of having 100 users crunching QC on Linux, there would maybe 2000 people crunching QC on Windows.

Hence, I repeat my statement from above: they forego huge computational power. Why so?

We have stated this in the past but I'll explain it here again. GPUGRID is related to the lab. In the lab we don't have a C++ developer, they are all chemists, biologists and statisticians. Best bet would be me as a computer scientist but I've been busy with many other things recently. So the development of the Windows app has fallen on Raimondas who is very nice to do this as he works in a company (Acellera) which obviously has clients to take care of and does not have an immediate gain from making this work on GPUGRID and Toni who tests it out of personal interest. The current paper we are working on takes priority so once it is finished which is supposed to be this week Raimondas and Toni might finish up the app. According to their latest news the app works mostly fine now except lacking some optimization so it should not be too far off.
Patience please, we will make it.

So we'll keep our fingers crossed that at QC app for Windows will be available soon :-)
My guess is that many crunchers will use it.

+1. I didn't know the QC development situation.
Another solution is to open the QC code (if it is possible) to community.
TN-Grid, for example, had a lot of help from two volunteers that helped the team to introduce the sse/avx extensions

I think on every project where I have seen sse/avx, etc. it has been the volunteers that do it. It takes special expertise. Also, there has been at least one project (POEM, if you remember it) where a volunteer did an outstanding job with an OpenCl app for GPUs, though I don't have his name at the moment. And a very capable developer has done both CUDA and OpenCl apps for XANSONS for COD.

If you ever visit Rosetta, you will quickly find out that rjs5 knows a whole lot about extensions and parallelism; I have seen him at Einstein too.
If you put out a call, they will come.

I know Rjs5 (i chatted privately with him time ago).
He have a deep knowledge about c, c++ and optimizations.

I don't know. For example, in Rosetta, the developers seems to be not interested in optimizations. (and, also, they have restrictions on open the code).

Actually the current beta QC version should not be too different from the final one. One common reason for failure is that the computations need huge temporary files. We can't make them need less space, but the disk limit will be raised (this occurred for the linux app too).

Will these be released again for Linux? What was the limit raised to?

I installed 4TB HDD into 3 machines in anticipation of these tasks. Would like to see how they run.

I've got 2 linux machines running QC tasks.

My 40 thread machine is running 10 tasks at once with 4 threads per task. According to boinc, GPUGrid is using 18.8 GB of disk space.

My other machine is running 4 tasks simultaneously at 4 threads per task and that one is taking 9.19 GB of disk space.

The linux app (3.31) is running very smoothly these days. Kudos to Toni et al for fixing the bugs of the earlier versions.

So the development of the Windows app has fallen on Raimondas who is very nice to do this as he works in a company (Acellera) which obviously has clients to take care of and does not have an immediate gain from making this work on GPUGRID and Toni who tests it out of personal interest. The current paper we are working on takes priority so once it is finished which is supposed to be this week Raimondas and Toni might finish up the app. According to their latest news the app works mostly fine now except lacking some optimization so it should not be too far off.
Patience please, we will make it.


My posting now is not to push or pester, just asking for information on the current status of the project.
Many thanks in advance -

I highly doubt anything has changed as they still don't have a C++ developer. I would just lay low and let it happen when it happens.

There is no student/graduate student/Phd/etc in University able to develop in C++?
I'll wait for windows app, in meantime i crunch with my linux vm

Got this error message on the current batch of QC test for Windows:

For now it does not seem a widespread problem. Can you reset the project?

Did a project reset and started three more tasks. Two task finished successfully and the other aborted with:

3/28/2019 10:37:48 AM | GPUGRID | Aborting task 170r5-TONI_TST11-0-1-RND6393_2: exceeded disk limit: 34955.30MB > 28610.23MB


As a separate test, I tried the tasks on a different Windows PC number 489422. All four tasks aborted with the following message:

<core_client_version>7.14.2</core_client_version>

I did a project reset and got the same result. Am I missing something?

That's strange. No errors on my other machine (other Xeon) with Win10 (1809 version) 64 bit.

On my windows 7 computer, I am getting "195 (0xc3) EXIT_CHILD_FAILED" on all the beta WUs.

http://www.gpugrid.net/result.php?resultid=20741510


On my windows 10 computer,I some WUs succeed, while other have the "196 (0xc4) EXIT_DISK_LIMIT_EXCEEDED" error.

The "ImportError" messages (Windows) likely mean that your processor does not support AVX2. This is something we'll try to sort out.

Another common error is disk space. It's because some molecules we process are indeed too large, and we don't have prior indication on when this occurs.

"Conda timeouts" are also seen. These should be transient, due to the failed connection between your machine and the conda software repository (where we host the packages).

which means that this kind of error cannot be precluded to begin with?

We'll refine the task sizes with time.

These seem to be the errors on all my QC. No problems with HD space since I replaced them with 4 TB HDD...

Having the Disk Limit Exceeded error too. I'm using a shucked WD 8TB Helium-filled drive with plenty of space available, so disk space is not an issue here as well.

Why are most of my Quantum WU's erroring out except one? When I read the file it points towards mini-conda. Updated Anaconda but still errors?

The failure of the task has not necessarily to do with the size of the drive. Definitely not in your case (unless you did not allocate enough disk space for BOINC in the BOINC settings).

The task itself includes a disk limitation in it's parameters, which are set by the project people. And obviously there are (many) cases where that's not enough.

My both tasks achieved in about 3 minutes 1.098% progress and stopped develop. After about 25 minutes of "empty transit" I broke the tasks because I had recognized, that it had no sense.
My previous beta tasks used to freeze with the same progress. May it mean that I've got badly configurated computer?
