I see that is a Windows 11 laptop and I have one doing that too so I gave up and just use it for Einstein GPU's
I checked the Bios on mine about 20 times and it refuses to work.

I have had the same issue and rather than continuing to tear my hair out I too run Einstein jobs.

It’s great!
In my case, the ALT-F2 takes a couple of tries to make it work.

I keep getting this failure message:

...We are putting some tasks here which use a brand new version of the ATLAS "pilot": this is the tool which controls the execution of the task from start to finish....

What practical effect will this have? Will it increase processing efficiency for the user?

Rom just released vboxwrapper 26186 at the weekend to support VirtualBox 5.1 on Windows. The Theory app was updated so that the release on Monday would go with that version but the CMS app wasn't updated. It has been done now so please try again.

Does this apply as well to the production work at vLHC?

Just curious if this app will require this much hand-holding in the future, or will it be much more resilient and reliable when it gets out of beta? Just seems it has been very sensitive to running off the rails for a long time.

For CMS, there are no new jobs following an exit and resume.

Disconnecting the internet for 10min causes:

After resume the job finishes.
The running.log and the last finished x.log are the same.

No new Job is started.(for at least 1 hour)

No "Job finished" entry in stderr.txt

...-Default app_config downloads with Theory if none already present (however, it might not take effect until Host or Boinc are restarted, or manual "Read config files"?)

Yes, I restarted BOINC, and then received this notification from BOINC Manager:

    vLHCathome-dev: Notice from BOINC
    Your app_config.xml file refers to an unknown application 'ALICE'. Known applications: 'LHCb', 'CMS', 'Theory', 'ATLAS'

Sure. There should be a prominent entry in the FAQs.


In terms of priority, it is more important that we don't lock up new volunteer's machines by swamping them with tasks than trying to maximize then number of tasks we can run by default.

We hope that those volunteers with powerful machines and who would like to donate more can follow the FAQ.

If any of you can think of a better way to do this please let us know. Later tonight I will create a new version of the CMS app that also has this file to see if it breaks anything.

Sounds like a good plan. Agree to not swamping new volunteer's machines! People will probably also ask in the forum and then can be guided to the FAQ.

As this gets sorted out it should be made easily clear on a post for the final version the name of the file to be modified, its location in the BOINC file directory, and directions for what part of the file to change. Users who may not be very technically adept may nonetheless know how many units they can run on their machine based on the amount of RAM they have.

Is there a way to get this app working more efficiently? It uses a lot of non-CPU time, which seems inefficient.

No Boinc-cms tasks on the server status page availabe.

Will the server default to the other applications that have work available, to maximize donor efficiency?

Hi Cinzia,

... I am getting a Permission denied error when it is trying to 'touch' the shutdown file in the shared area so the jobs keep running longer than they should.

I am getting the same message.

Using "Show VM Console" starts OK, but after some seconds and switching between screens leads to fault and then crash of the app and Computation Error.

How are you managing to get new jobs? I recently get the message that I need a huge amount of memory.
