Strange. I don't understand this. Nothing has changed.

Another job is hanging around. No action in Console for > 20 minutes, but using CPU.

I will end that task. Result: https://lhcathomedev.cern.ch/lhcathome-dev/result.php?resultid=2753353
Will be reported in a few minutes.

I started my first task and after about 3 minutes while watching the VM Console it stopped and that means the task stopped in the VB


And then a couple minutes later became a error in the Boinc Manager

7 Theory finished with points, only five are in MCProd listed for today.

The jobs are submitted in batches so are only reported once all have finished hence the delay.
I can see if there is something I can do to speed this up.

I have been watching your tasks. I am surprised about the issues as the only main difference with this and the old approach is the jobs go via the front door rather than the back door. I did see that you had at least one valid task. Updating the cvmfs configuration to use cloudflare may help.

I have 4 Valids with 2 each on 2 different pc's

(the old 3-core that I made to run 4 cores got these since I had -dev turned on from before and it was supposed to only be running LHC Theory)

I have 2 new ones that have made it past 20 minutes so I will see how these go.

But I got over 10 tasks since those Valids that only lasted about 8 minutes before they became errors.

cranky: [ERROR] 'cvmfs_config probe alice.cern.ch' failed.

This one seems to be running (3 hours at 15% )

Since the result-upload was fixed in v4.16: 30 Valids, 1 error (runc failed, reported in this thread) and 1 task, I stopped myself.

I have my first sherpa running on Windows. That seems to be a long one.
I figured out what is the job description using Powershell:

PS D:\> Get-Content D:\boinc1\slots\0\shared\input | Select -Index 10
  echo "runspec=boinc pp z1j 7000 250 - sherpa 2.2.4 default 100000 20"

I'm running now 4 dual core Windows-tasks and 1 single core Linux VM on my Windows host.
CPU-usage between 13% and 19% per task (8 threads = 100%) and very rarely an outbreak to 25%.

I got a new task after your post, but I still have Theory_2019_02_20.vdi in use. No new vdi.

There was not a new vdi for Windows when you did your post but there is now (Theory_2019_02_22.vdi). It contains the OpenHTC.io proxy configuration so will hopefully help with issues like what Magic has been experiencing.

Thanks Laurence, I am d/ling that right now and since it is after 2am it will d/l fast (about 15 minutes) as fast as 4.5Mbps right now.

The only problem is I will only do this on the one host for now since this will probably make my high-speed close to used up for my current month but I will try to d/l on another host starting after 8am and hope that it will finish before 2am the following day.
(and I will check my isp stats around noon just so I don't waste that right now)

Theory Simulation v4.18 - Theory_2019_02_22.vdi


I hope the new vdi does the trick.

Considering how the new vbox app works, is it still worth using a local proxy server anymore?
If yes, are there plans to implement that?

My guess:
The vbox app (windows, mac) may need it much more than the linux native app as the latter keeps it's CVMFS content persistent.

I have 2 tasks running now with no further output to the Console. Similar picture as in https://lhcathomedev.cern.ch/lhcathome-dev/forum_thread.php?id=451&postid=6033
I told in that message that it was using the CPU, but now I'm running dual core VM's it uses 200% CPU of a core.
So it's very busy with ...... what?

Jobs: boinc pp jets 13000 150,-,2360 - pythia8 8.230 tune-A2 100000 20
and boinc ee zhad 34.8 - - pythia8 8.235 tune-fischer1 100000 20

Maybe nothing to do with the jobs itself, but could it be the Tail Log eating the CPU?
lhcathome-dev	Theory_2279-752178-20_2	4.18 Theory Simulation (vbox64_mt_mcore)	00:31:50 elapsed (01:05:13 CPU)	Running	204.8% CPU	
lhcathome-dev	Theory_2279-766390-20_2	4.18 Theory Simulation (vbox64_mt_mcore)	00:29:58 elapsed (01:01:22 CPU)	Running	204.7% CPU
Edit:
Theory_2279-766390-20_2 was validated OK, but
as you can see at the end [ERROR] Container 'runc' failed and no line with preparing output.

2 other jobs without output to the console and consuming almost 2 cores each.

Theory_2279-762078-20_1 - [boinc ppbar ue 1800 - - pythia6 6.428 362 100000 20]
Theory_2279-796930-20_0 - [boinc pp ttbar 7000 - - pythia6 6.427 ambt1 100000 20]

Edit:
Digged a bit and come to the conclusion that all tasks from version 4.18 for me and other Windows-users has this strange ending of a task, broken Console-output and higher CPU-usage.

Question: Is the science outcome valid?

The first 6 tasks I ran as Valid and ran from 90 mins to about 120 mins and ended with that cranky: [ERROR] Container 'runc' failed.

And then the next 8 Valids only ran for about 8 minutes each ending with
cranky: [ERROR] 'cvmfs_config probe alice.cern.ch' failed.

https://lhcathomedev.cern.ch/lhcathome-dev/results.php?userid=192

But now I can't get any new tasks and log says

2/22/2019 1:27:20 PM | lhcathome-dev | This computer has finished a daily quota of 4 tasks

That usually only happens when you already got too many Invalids and I only got one
