Over the last week, I have had 11 tasks terminate because of error 226. Before this week, I never saw an error in TRP Sieve. I still am getting many successful tasks. Anything I should do?

Hi Jim,

I had a look around and it seems that the sr2sieve program gets stuck in a loop where it repeatedly exits and restarts before BOINC eventually decides to fail the task. The fact that this happens at different points in different tasks, but that they seem to occur at around the same time on the same computer points to some local issue rather than a problem with the app per se.

Did you do anything to your machines last week - I see you are running OS X Sierra, have you just upgraded? Other possible problems could include running out of disk space, your antivirus program blocking access to the BOINC directories, or similar.

Hmmm. I switched to Sierra about two weeks ago one one machine and about one week ago on another. But more importantly, I have lots of stuff automatically happening around midnight local time and I wonder if that is any indication. Also, on Sierra and earlier OSXs, I have noticed that Manager crashes
when I select "suspend" from the Activity menu. I do have suspension turned on when the mouse moves or when >=25% of non-boinc CPU is being used. I will research this and get back.

OK.

I had a backup task and a virus checker running at midnight simultaneously with BOINC. I canceled those two tasks and problems have gone away. Thanks for the insight.
