Hi,

I can't remember since when, but I'm not able to pause/suspend anymore the 321 sieve app. Maybe due to the new app or wrapper ?

The tasks on Boinc Manager are marked as 'Suspended' but they continue to crunch until done. Then it's ok.

Any idea?

Thanks

I had 321 Sieve running on both a Windows and a Linux machine and just suspended them while watching a system monitor, and they all dropped to 0% within a few seconds... Version of BOINC? OS? Any recent app_info file use?

Just tested it on Mac as well, suspending did cause it to stop running. :shrug:

Message 129713 - Posted: 23 May 2019 | 4:14:37 UTC

There's an (I think) well known bug where trying to use a newer boincmgr to pause or abort work on a much older version (it happens to me where the remote system is running 6.10.58) just doesn't work. The command is ignored by the older system. During the recent LLR testing, I was trying to get both an SR5 +1 and SR5 -1 on a 6.10.58 version of BOINC running on a non-GUI linux. There are twice as many -1 job, so I had to keep aborting until I got a +1. I could not affect tasks with the GUI on another machine in any way. I wound up having to use the command-line boinccmd.exe locally to cancel tasks on the other computer. I could of course have used the same command line on the remote computer, but except for the --host portion it would have been exactly the same command.

If you're encountering that same bug, you won't be able to remotely pause any kind of job, LLR included, unless you're doing it from the actual machine where the work is running. They do not show as paused in the GUI, it's as if the abort command had never been given. I had to use:

boinccmd --host HOST_NAME_HERE --task http://www.primegrid.com/ RESULT_NAME_HERE abort

to kill the unwanted jobs. Other commands besides abort are suspend and resume.

Both Windows and Linux wrappers were tested in both suspend modes ("keep task in memory" and "stop app").

1. Please post a link to the task which you've tried so suspend. Task output contains information about suspend/resume/abort events.

2. As a immediate workaround, make sure that setting "Keep tasks in memory when suspended" is not selected in PG preferences. This will force task to fully stop instead of suspending in running state. This will always work. If it's not, then the problem is somewhere else, not in app or wrapper.

Thanks all. I'm at the office now. I will post all information tonight.

For what I remember:

Latest MacOS X version (updated few days ago)
Latest Boinc version (installed long time ago)

Boinc is configured to keep WU in memory while suspended

Here is (I think) the output of one of the failing WU

FYI, I tried multiple times to suspend it, then quit the client and relaunch it.
