We are experiencing multiple issues, e.g. hitting an undocumented upload size limit, and others. Please be patient.

Have you tried file compression, or splitting the large file into multiple pieces that will be combined after they are unloaded?

Also seeing message:

That message jogged a memory.
Could it be another license expiry like last year about this time?

I doubt it - the licence expiry related to the science application (ACEMD), and the Peer certificate relates to https internet traffic.

But I've just dealt with a Peer certificate error reported for two other projects, on the BOINC web site. So something might be brewing.

Lo and behold, I've got

30/09/2021 18:09:14 | GPUGRID | Scheduler request failed: Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with given CA certificates

on this machine, and I've got a task just 7.5% short of finishing. Alarm bells are starting to ring.

Nope. Not that issue. I already pinged Toni about the license renewal.

Went back through my BOINC logs and my GPUGrid scheduler connections have been working fine and normal.

Wonder what is different with your two hosts?

1) This problem only started happening today - I'll try to find a start time.
2) It only affects Windows hosts - Linux is not affected.

Hourly contact at 14:21 today was good, failed at 15:22 - times are British, UTC+1

I do see the same issue on my Windows host as well. Just happened a few hours ago.

Edit: Adding the project on a Win machine via the BOINC manager also temporarily fails.

If the project is using LetsEncrypt, then apparently there's some fairly widespread issues with that at the moment.

Turned out that an expired https certificate was the culprit. Workarounds as suggested on the main BOINC or WUprop forum worked fine and behavior is back to normal for me.

For Windows:
- make a backup from "C:\Program Files\BOINC\ca-bundle.crt"
- open it as administrator in an editor
it is a text file
- delete "DST Root CA X3" until "-----END CERTIFICATE-----"
- restart boinc
the needed "ISRG Root X1" is already contained

I just tried this on one of my hosts and the upload started up right away.

I copied the edited ca-bundle file to another system and that seems to work too.

Need to go through the rest of them and copy the updated file now.

Yes - and the Windows version on BOINC wasn't ready to handle it. The secondary problem was BOINC's continued use of an old version of OpenSSL, long deprecated.

There's some hope of an emergency release of a replacement Windows client within (possibly) 24 hours. I've also been kicking some butt at GitHub, and I've extracted a sort-of promise that there will be an improved version of BOINC across all platforms by mid-December.

This didn't help. Last succesfull contact from a Windows host with project servers was on Sep 30. Linux hosts work fine.

Fixing the ca-bundle.crt file is certainly a cure for the current problem.

1) An alternative way of fixing it is to download a whole new file from the BOINC workround thread.
2) Make sure that you place the replacement in the correct place for your system. The location C:\Program Files\BOINC\ca-bundle.crt is BOINC's default on Windows, but you had the choice during installation to put it anywhere else you wanted.

Unfortunately this didn't help either. Boinc client seems to be installed to default location c:\program files\boinc since TaskManager shows boinc.exe being executed at that location. I replaced c:\program files\boinc\ca-bundle.crt file with the one from BOINC workround and rebooted, but no dice.

That same Win10 host is currently running WCG and Rosetta tasks, so I believe its network connection is basically ok.

OK, it seems to be a local problem specific to your machine, rather than the general problem affecting all Windows users.

You could get more detailed information by enabling 'http_debug' logging in the Event Log. Set that in BOINC Manager Options -> Event Log options: update the project: turn off the option again. (It produces a lot of output, so unwise to leave it running continuously)

See if you can see the cause of the problem, or post the output relating to GPUGrid here and we can take a look.

Yup, that's the one.

14.10.2021 15.15.40 | GPUGRID | [http] [ID#1] Info: SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate
14.10.2021 15.15.40 | GPUGRID | [http] HTTP error: Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with given CA certificates

The certificates you're offering (from BOINC) can't get it together with the certificates being offered by GPUGrid.

The quickest solution is to give BOINC a better set of certificates to offer. Edit the bundle, use somebody else's hacked version, or use the newer version available on the BOINC message board.

The 'local problem' I suggested earlier might simply be that some versions of Windows, or some local installations, cache frequently-used files and don't notice that the original source has changed.

You'll have to work through that one on your own system, I'm afraid - the simple file replacement worked on all my machines, without any further action.

Steps I'd suggest, in order:
1) Update the file
2) Check that the file has really updated - not been blocked by an anti-virus program.
3) Restart BOINC
4) Restart the computer
5) Detach from GPUGrid and re-attach (it worked for mmonnin, but I can't see why)

Message 57607 - Posted: 14 Oct 2021 | 15:10:30 UTC - in response to Message 57587.

For Windows:
- make a backup from "C:\Program Files\BOINC\ca-bundle.crt"
- open it as administrator in an editor
it is a text file
- delete "DST Root CA X3" until "-----END CERTIFICATE-----"
- restart boinc
the needed "ISRG Root X1" is already contained

This didn't help. Last succesfull contact from a Windows host with project servers was on Sep 30. Linux hosts work fine.
The key of successfully modifing a file in the "C:\Program Files" folder is to do it on elevated privilege level (using administrator access rights), otherwise you can't write/modify files in the "C:\Program Files" folder.
To achieve this, copy the following to your cliboard:
notepad "C:\Program Files\BOINC\ca-bundle.crt"
Press Windows key + R (it brings up the "run" dialog box)
Paste the text into the input field
Press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER, then click yes in the "User Account Control" dialog box
Delete the unnecessary certificate
Exit notepad with saving changes
Restart BOINC

Thanks for the update Retvari! I manually edited and replaced all the certificates on my Win systems earlier. When I have time I will start testing v7.16.20.

As always you can get actual CA bundle at curl project site:

https://curl.se/docs/caextract.html

Or use direct url to latest CA bundle:

https://curl.se/ca/cacert.pem

I reloaded the cert bundle from BOINC message board and copied it again over the previous one with elevated privileges (CMD.EXE started as an Administrator), but no dice this time either. I didn't find any evidence about that host using the old cert bundle dated somewhere 2015 (perhaps BOINC being installed then).

I didn't detach/reattach from project at this point. I wanted to first try to update the BOINC manager.

Have anyone tried BOINC manager v7.16.20?
Is this version contain the updated certificates?

---- EDIT ----

This version has the updated certificate file.

This solved the problem. Now that host is again communicating with GPUGRID.

Many thanks to all of you helping to sort this out :)

Glad you got it sorted in the end.

Just for the record, BOINC v7.16.20 is an update for the whole BOINC package - Manager, client, and all the twiddly bits that glue it all together. It will be the client update that solved this particular problem - the Manager wasn't implicated this time.

see https://boinc.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=14413
and https://letsencrypt.org/certificates/

Tried this one...if you do, GPUgrid will not work - but neither would WCG. 🤦‍♂️🙄

So fixed it back with .old certificate & now WCG works.

But also, GPUgrid reported to have OLD certificates on Chrome. & after removing, GPUgrid would not connect again.

Admins & techs, when will this be fixed?

Just update the entire BOINC package. Don't bother with the certificate file edit when the entire new package just works. BOINC version 7.16.20

https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php

There is nothing wrong with any of the projects if you just fix the BOINC client in the first place.

My client is up-to-date, but I haven't gotten any jobs from GPUGrid in a very, very long time. I've tried resetting the project, removing and re-adding it, etc. with no luck. In my GPUGrid settings here on the website, I'm enabled to get any task from any project type.

My other projects are getting tasks. Rosetta stopped, but that's because it apparently wants VirtualBox now, but I don't want to install that version of BOINC w/ VB.

OS: Windows 10 64-bit
BOINC: 7.16.20 (x64)

Are there just no projects right now other than the Python beta? Is said beta Linux only?

your assumption is correct; unfortunately :-(

Obviously, they now concentrate only on Python beta, so no ACEMD tasks; I am afraid it will go like this for a while :-(

And I have also managed (even more slowly, even more carefully, and with an error on the first attempt) to download and run new work.

But it's not for the faint-hearted: please restore normal service as soon as possible!

If you change project url from secure HTTPS to unsecure HTTP, it's wise to beforehand change authentication key( <authenticator></authenticator> ) in account_www.gpugrid.net.xml to weak account key( https://gpugrid.net/weak_auth.php ) to prevent account abuse if http traffic will be sniffed by someone.

Thank you, Richard, once more time.
Guided by your clue, I uploaded all my finished tasks without losing their deserved bonus.
But I reverted everything to https, and I'm waiting for the problem to be solved on project's side before downloading new work.
Weekend, bad moment for the Informatics on duty at a University to be aware to solve emerged problems...
(We usually think of infrastructure maintenance staff as being omnipresent, but surely they also need to take their weekly rest to recharge energy :-)

Message 57936 - Posted: 28 Nov 2021 | 17:23:58 UTC - in response to Message 57907.

I have managed (slowly, carefully) to upload and report completed tasks, by editing the urls in client_state.xml

And I have also managed (even more slowly, even more carefully, and with an error on the first attempt) to download and run new work.

But it's not for the faint-hearted: please restore normal service as soon as possible!



Hello Richard,
I have try your proposal (editing)
I found my pending upload WU, but still problem ! Now Transiant (CA error disapeared)But still unable to report.
Like you say, it is a possible solution. But very long.
More and more there are problems with this project.
Thank you for all your informations.
Best regards

Since then, I've posted full details of the basic technique in message 57912, and possible reasons for the failure to report in message 57930.

Both are in the Stuck on 'uploading' thread, Server and website area. Read the whole thread for context.

Just tried the trick but it did not work. Can't get past 24 hour backoff.

The project is back ok now.
Try a reset, or re-attaching and it should pick up, as it did for me just now.
I had a 'fun' few hours forcing a download of 100Mb- but only got to 60% before the plug was pulled server side..
I see that the previous Cuda 1101 zip file is no longer attached -only Cuda101, as I had wondered if this was a factor -apart from file size and expired certs,but probably not.
However the larger Cuda file is still only downloading at ~8KBps, so the unit won't be running for quite a while..

Just try a normal update, or a retry on any stalled transfers, before going any further.

A full project reset shouldn't be needed, and all those extra transfers will just slow down the project recovery for everyone.

Having worked through your excellent instructions Richard, I finally succeeded in getting the pending uploads through. Forgot to set NNW and thus the manager requested 2 new tasks. However, I didn't bother to fix the new work download issue. Had 2 pending downloads that I aborted. This morning when all was fixed, I repeatedly got the scheduler request completed – downloads stalled message and thus reattached the project. Took less than 1.5 min to download all necessary project files and now I am back to business as usual. Only this approach seemed to solve the above annoying scheduler message.

Site is back to normal. No need for funny business or resets.
No more Unsecure message when browsing.
Uploads/Downloads work as intended.

Everyone knows it since three days !!!
It tooks three days to solve the problem !
Not be surprised, that less ans less users leaves your project.
Only the one who race for Formula Boinc, are following.
Thank you Richard Hasselgrove for your help.

Thank you Richard for all your help.Why you not join as computer scientist, this team ?
You are everuwhere, with a very heavy knownledge about Boinc.
I write now, after publication of site admin who says " it was a certificate problem".
All of us knows it! Only very late reaction from admin !
Best regards from Belgium. (sorry for my english, i try to do my best)

Thanks for the kind words. Trying to solve these little problems goes some way to keeping those little grey cells in working order.

I did - many years ago - try to put forward the concept of 'technical moderators' as a specialist position within BOINC: people with technical knowledge who could bridge the gap between the mass of volunteers and the project scientists or administrators. There's a need for people who can decipher [5-year old voice on] Mummeeeee - it's not working! [5-year old voice off] and turn it into a technical description of what needs to be tweaked.

The idea never took off (the project side couldn't see the need), but I've gone on trying to live the dream.

Ta. Continuing on our theme of 'things the volunteers have noticed, and project admin might like to take a look at...'

We are now running ACEMD3 v2.19, deployed on 10 Nov 2021. The first tasks had a data error, but we've now been running ADRIA_BanditGPCR tasks successfully since Friday 26 November.

The apps come in two flavours, cuda 101 and cuda 1121. I'll let the owners of Ampere cards pursue their own private grief, but I'm worried about the rest of us.

The machines I run here all have GTX 1660 series cards - all modern and efficient, and fast enough to complete these tasks in under 24 hours. Five cards have returned four tasks each, and all twenty have validated.

All machines have tried both cuda101 and cuda1121, and on four out of five cuda1121 is clearly faster than cuda101. The fifth is a bit ambiguous.

That means that BOINC should be moving towards issuing cuda1121 preferentially. In fact, it should have reached that point by now - we must have completed well over 100 tasks globally since this version was launched.

But all four of my 'clear advantage' machines are currently running cuda101, and only the ambiguous one is trying cuda1121 again. That's the wrong way round.

Why? Looking at the details for each of our computers, there's a link for "Application details: Show". That brings up the history for that computer, running each application that its tried.

The crucial lines here are 'Number of tasks completed' and 'Average processing rate'. Once 'Number of tasks completed' reaches 11, the server should compare the APRs and preferentially assign the fastest app for new work, when there's a choice.

But my hosts are showing zero tasks completed, despite the 'Consecutive valid tasks' count being filled in. If the project-global count of completed tasks (which we can't inspect directly) is also not filling in properly, that would explain the bias towards cuda101. But I can't explain why the stats aren't being recorded properly.

Well, I don't know how it happened, but after writing all that yesterday...

Today's rotation has brought me a clean sweep of cuda1121 tasks across all five machines. Coincidence, or a tweak to the server? No way of knowing externally, but it's good news both for the project (the science will be done more quickly) and for the volunteers.

Nice.
How about the problem that the server does not accept result file sizes above approx. 500 MB and instead of crediting them appropriately throws these in the bin? Has this issue been solved as well?

Kind of.
The present workunits are much shorter, thus their result file is much shorter (~270MB) as well.
