Hi
I turn-off my PC's and suspend all Wu for GPUGrid (using a cronjob)

When I resume the WUs they fall after a while

I'd try to send BOINC the "quit client" command instead of suspending WUs with the cron job.

i won't quit the client but only suspend this project to elaborate another, and then shut down the pc

I suspend the project not the WU(s)

Probably something to do with using the cuda3.1 app:

9 Jan 2013 | 21:04:19 UTC 14 Jan 2013 | 12:08:27 UTC Error while computing 62,671.43 662.52 --- ACEMD2: GPU molecular dynamics v6.16 (cuda31)

Even at that it seems very long for a 'normal' length task; most of your NOELIA_hfXA tasks ran in 8.5K to 9K seconds (albeit on the 4.2app). On the 3.1app I would have expected it to take around twice that, but it ran for ~9times as long. Perhaps there was a problem with the task or it was a long WU that ended up in the wrong queue somehow?

Did you already try ending BOINC instead of suspending the project, prior to a restart?

If WU goes on ... nothing happens. WU is reported without errors.

no.

WU(s) fail if I resume them after reboot Pc(s).

As I wrote , I suspend the project via crontab+boinc_command_line(suspend).Then turn Off

PCs can not be switched on 24/24. When I resume the project (and WU(s) ), WU(s) fail.

I don't know why.


all processings hint at SWAN

SWAN: FATAL : swanMemcpyDtoH failed

SWAN : FATAL : Cuda driver error 700 in file 'swanlibnv2.cpp' in line 1574.

I solved ( maybe...)

Cuda library wasn t linked properly for acemd.2562.x64.cuda42 app.

I reinstalled cuda-toolkit-4.x.x

libcufft.so.4 link was missed
libcudart.so.4 link was missed

Now :

/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007fccc43c6000)


I tried to suspend/reusme after reboot and WU(s) goes on now ...

I will check better tomorrow.

:)



[edit] nothing ...
After 10 minutes this WU (NOELIA) fails

Another WU (NATHAN) still goes on ...


I think I give up :(

You can ignore this error, MDIO: cannot open file "restart.coor"
Perhaps this is another lib problem?

Ok.
Today I resume the project and NATHAN's WU still crunching without error

As soon as possible I'll try to reset the project for all PCs and will check all dinamic libraries for all GPUgrid apps

So you suspend GPU-Grid via the cron-job, set the PC to standby, restart, resume GPU-Grid and occasionally (or mostly) get these errors (as you said before). I'm not an expert in this, but to me your error message sound like "something was in a state it should not have been in - be it driver, CUDA, GPU memory or whatever". I think we can agree on this, right?

When you suspend GPU-Grid and have "leave applications in memory while suspended" active, BOINC and GPU-Grid think they can just continue exactly where they left upon resuming. However, your PC went into standby in the mean time. The main memory contents should be preserved, but what about GPU memory, GPU caches and registers? I would not rule out the possibility that something goes wrong here. Some state is reset during standby, but the app is not expecting this, as it was only temporarly suspended.

So I'm asking you again to test the following: instead of suspending GPU-Grid with your cron-job just shut down the entire BOINC core client. Now upon resuming from standby BOINC and GPU-Grid know they're starting new from the last checkpoint, which should definitely work. Much better than giving up, isn't it?

No "leave applications in memory..." is set


with your cron-job

It is a simple cli command line : boinccmd --project http://www.gpugrid.net/ suspend

see
$ boinccmd --help

or "Command-line options " ---> http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Client_configuration




instead of suspending GPU-Grid with your cron-job just shut down the entire BOINC core client

I can't suspend the entire client . I must suspend GPUGrid and all GPU projects for my own reasons. Crunching still goes on for a while with CPU only . then shutdown the PC (not standby or something like..)
All PCs are not equipped with monitor,keyboard,mouse and are controlled via ssh /SecureSHell)



but the app is not expecting this, as it was only temporarly suspended


I never had problems like this until a few months ago
I'll do tests

Try turning LAIM off, and if that doesn't work shut down Boinc completely, as MrS said.

If I try to Torn-Off the client when GPUGrid is running (not suspend) , WU(s) fail.

:D

Only GPUGrid app has this problems . Other GPU Projects work fine (turn-off/on , suspend,reusme etc ...)

I'm trying to update nvidia-drivers-313.18

http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-display-amd64-313.18-driver.html

I see several BugsFix


Fixed a regression that could cause OpenGL applications to crash while compiling shaders.

Well.. this doesn't happen under Windows. Maybe suspend+resume just causes the same error to appear later?

The new driver could help, but not the OpenGL fixes, as CUDA is something completely separate.
