Message 140665 - Posted: 10 Jun 2020 | 4:21:00 UTC

I'm pretty sure I have my preferences set up properly, via primegrid.com/prefs (Jupiter), and local overrides (of which there are none, currently). I'm running ubuntu server, so by control is via boinccmd. Also, --get_cc_status and --acct_mgr_info seem correct.

Problem: Sunday, all 64 cores were 100% dedicated. (It reported a lot of credit on BAM, which I just reset as a debugging measure.) TOP showed each core running around 100%usage, each on their own line. Now, I see ONE entry in TOP (primegrid_LLR), at around 2800%. And the machine is clearly not working hard.

--get_tasks shows many tasks with scheduler state / active task state as preempted/UNITIALIZED, although these same tasks show as partially complete. One shows Scheduled/Executing, with resources: 64 CPUs. Some show uninitialized/uninitialized, with 0% completed, and 1CPU for resources. All are downloaded, non ready to report.

Possible explanations?
a) I may have a GPU problem. I'll check that with the hardware vendor; for now, I've disabled it (--set_gpu_mode never). Could the problem be that it started GPU jobs, and if it's now gone, it's causing things to hang up? All the tasks above are CPU-only tasks though.
b) --get_project_status shows i'm connected to primegrid twice. once via acct_mgr, once not.
c) i'm an idiot.
d) the one active task is just a big slow one, and things will pick up when it finishes.

If someone is willing to assist by phone, that would be greatly appreciated, and far more efficient. Just send me a message to coordinate.

Thanks to all in advance.

On the PG preferences page please check "Multi-threading: Max # of threads for each task" field for all used venues. Default settings is "No limit" which mean "run on all cores". It was designed for home users with standard 4-core CPUs, and not working well in special setups. LLR loses efficiency as the number of threads grows. Also not all LLR projects benefits from multi-cores.

As a first step, you can set this field to 4 and you should have 16 tasks using 4 cores each. In complex cases you should set this field to 1 and then setup multithreading manually on your side, using app_config.xml file - there are lot of posts about this on forum.

Note that change of this setting will take effect only when Boinc sends or receives a task from server, a simple "update" (without tasks) is not enough.

Also a text-mode replacement of Boinc GUI exists, named boinctui. It's useful for servers. Alternatively, you can control this server from another Linux or Windows PC using either standard client, either alternative software BoincTasks (Windows only)

I fully agree. For headless linux hosts it's great tool to have GUI for boinc-client.

There is forked version available on github whit few minors changes to the original version.

Max Threads is already set to 1. So, if I understand this correctly, that does not explain what's happening. Thank you for the advice though -- it did increase my understanding.

Any more ideas?

At one point, I DID have that setting at the default value, which is presumably No Limit, but only briefly. The machine has since sync'd (several times), so the "1" should be set properly. But could there be a bug? I could try using global_prefs_override to nail it to one, but I don't see any documentation for that particular parameter. (https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Global_prefs_override.xml)

I may have solved it. I did two things:

guessed at global prefs override text, as
<max_threads>1</max_threads>

AND

I went to primegrid prefs, changed max threads from 1 to 2, then back to 1

Sync'd.

It's working. Not sure which thing did it.

OOPS!

I changed nothing. It's back to one multi-threaded LLR task. For a few hours, it was N single-threaded LLR tasks.

Still need help. Something isn't right.

Your settings on PrimeGrid are correct. It's not clear what's causing such strange behavior. Looking at output of some your tasks, I see that they changed from 1 to 64 cores right in the middle of execution.

The only suspicious thing is that you're using account manager, and now it has control over some of your settings. Boinc uses single "recently-modified" copy of setting on all sites, but extra venues (Sun - Pluto) is a PrimeGrid-specific extension, they may be not handled correctly by third-party sites and account managers. It's possible that when you've modified your setting here, they become "recently modified" and had priority, so everything worked fine for a while, but at some point Boinc contacted account manager which took control (and broke things) again.

So I could suggest following:

1. Move this computer to one of standard venues - Default, Home, School or Work, and configure this venue accordingly (to use 1 core).

2. If it does not help, do not use account manager at all.

Note that you may also need to go to computing preferences ("When and how BOINC uses your computer") and update them (even not changing anything) to make them "master" copy.

Good suggestions. I shifted to "Work" and re-sync'd. I'll let you know what happens. I'll stick with BAM, at least during this test.

What does account manager do for me anyway? That's never been entirely clear.

I removed "321 Prime Search LLR" from the subproject list, and did a reset. The other subproj i had enabled (genefer 18) took off on all processors.

I think "321 Prime Search LLR" is not paying proper attention to the Max Thread setting.

I removed "321 Prime Search LLR" from the subproject list, and did a reset. The other subproj i had enabled (genefer 18) took off on all processors.

I think "321 Prime Search LLR" is not paying proper attention to the Max Thread setting.



I think that PrimeGrid sends tasks that has the #threads u configed instead of prefs
An example will be better:
For example you set max threads per task to 4 and max thread for this project venue to 1.
If you request tasks it will still send you 4T 321 LLR tasks instead of 1T LLR tasks. That may be the reason 321 LLR isn't doing 1threaded

No, it's work in another direction.

Only LLR tasks can use more then one CPU core. And we need to find out why and from whom your Boinc client receives command "use all cores", although site preferences are correct. LLR and client are just doing what they've been told to do.

All other types of tasks (Sieve, Genefer) can use only one CPU core. They're programmed this way. They do not support Max Thread setting and always will use 1 core per task, and you'll see 64 tasks of these types running.

What does account manager do for me anyway? That's never been entirely clear.

Personally I never used it. Some people have the ability to control computers not necessarily in their control or computers with command line only. This may be a person who loves to help their friends by fixing their computers, gets their friends to OK to have the software run in the background, without actually having physical or remoting capabilities. An account manager then allows them to make adjustments based on commands that that BOINC is set up to follow.
For most people the account manager software is fairly useless and actually a little intrusive as you have found out. It interprets unknown venues sometimes as default and then makes a mess of everything.
It is a good tool that could use some more work, but I have not seen much updating done to the backend of BAM in a while. If someone would sit down a write out an account manager than would adapt with the projects ability to personalize, that would mean a lot of work and probably a nightmare, but it would be the only way a real account manager would be useful in all situations.
