Sorry for the format mess: pasted from BoincTasks; I can't find the Boinc file corresponding to this.

So I did some Googling around to try to at least have some indication about the issue. I suspect, because I see NETBIOS, that it has to do with connections to my NAS. Fact is, I run everything BOINC from my NAS (via a drive mapping so that all Boinc data is in S:\.

Question is then, why do the Einstein job require so many, more than whatever default, Netbios sessions, or connections to the NAS, presumably in parallel. It ran fine in the past; I don't know when it stopped working as I only rarely check it these days. Note that Einstein is the only project I run that uses my GPUs (2x GTX1070).

Is there a way to increase these netbios sessions? Or to have Einstein use less of these?

Thank you.

Francois

Hi Cesinge! I believe that

Hi Cesinge!

I believe that the NetBios/Network Bios message is a red herring and comes from something trying to interpret the fault code and using windows fault codes.

I went and had a look on your failed tasks for host 12629348 and picked a few task results at random, #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5.
All show the same error in the stderr output:

Couldn't create OpenCL context (error: 999)!
initialize_ocl returned error [2007]
OCL context null
OCL queue null
Error generating generic FFT context object [5]
02:37:42 (7728): [CRITICAL]: ERROR: MAIN() returned with error '5'

I would start by checking the graphics card driver and download the latest from Nvidia and install that by choosing "Advanced" and clean install.

Sorry, had not much time to

Sorry, had not much time to deal with it, then had to wait to confirm that jobs were running. Indeed, upgrading to the latest GeForce drivers seems to do the trick.

I'm not sure where you got you detailed information, however? Server-side only? Now, that wouldn't have helped much anyway... 

Thank you for this ! Cool

Good to hear that things seem to be working now!

The info is available locally while the task is running and after it finishes until it's reported. But you can't read it through Boinc Manager, you have to navigate to the Boinc data directory and either look in the appropriate slot or in client_state.xml.
It's much easier to find the info on the webpage after the task is reported. Wink

After running GPU's on this

After running GPU's on this one host for 3 years it decided today to do this

https://einsteinathome.org/task/1288209418

Over and over and I tried rebooting and updating the driver but it made no difference.

 

I see the 

The network BIOS session limit was exceeded. 

And the error at the end but I have no idea why it just happened all of a sudden since this was the one I usually never had to check since it isn't a video card.

It was always running pretty good for a AMD Ryzen 3 2300U

https://einsteinathome.org/host/12769534

and I usually never ask any questions but my headache doesn't want me to search for the answer

So I just suspended this one since all these GPU errors are not something I like to have here.

Might have to fire up one of my GPU's that I used to have running here to make up for this for now.

turn off beta tasks. all of your errors are with the v1.28 beta app. all of your previous successes are with the 1.22 standard app.

Not sure how that happened but you are right of course so back to work and I just got up and my headache is almost gone finally)

Thanks Steve
