Hi

One of my setups are running a Genefer World record Task and was already around 45 - 50% completed (140 + hours) when i realized (this morning) , that the task had restarted and is now on about 5% completion.

Could anyone tell me why this happened ?

Thanks

Take a look in the stderr.txt file in the slot directory where the task is running. It should tell you what happened.

Jumping backwards a small amount can happen when some sort of error occurs and genefer restarts from the most recent checkpoint. If for some reason it couldn't restart from the checkpoint file, it would have to start from the beginning.

That shouldn't happen under normal circumstances. Could you post the rest of that file?

It's possible that something (a backup program, windows indexing, anti-virus, etc.) caused interference with the creation of the checkpoint file. The way it creates the checkpoint is designed to be tolerant of that kind of problem, but it's possible that exactly the right sequence of events could cause this failure to happen.

It's probably very unlikely to ever happen again, unless whatever is causing the checkpoint creation to fail is happening frequently. These checkpoint files are substantially larger than on other projects here because of the size of the numbers. They're about 40 MB each, and you need room for two of them at once.

What you should do right now is suspend and then resume the task to make sure it restarts from where it left off. If it starts at the beginning again, then there's a persistent problem with creating the checkpoint and we'll have to dig a bit deeper.

Thank you for the rapid response Michael !

How weird ..

Alright ! I have suspended the task for about 10 minutes and just restarted ... seems to be running from where i suspended without any noticeable problems. However, i will keep an eye on things and give update here.

Hoping for a WR here:) !

Update :

Still running strong after the suspend/resume and is now on about 13% with an estimated 212 hours to completion.

Quick question :

The elapsed time is showing 170 + hours. I didn't really pay any attention to this when the task restarted so i assume that the elapsed just carried on without restarting ?

Regards
