I have no clue if PG reissues the same workunits back to the same person or if I just got the next ones in the queue.


You'll never get a second task for the same workunit. Once you've done one, whether it's a failure or a success, that's it. If you abort a task, whatever replaces it will be from a different workunit.


Thank you!

Seeing Tons of "Aborted by user" Tasks for some odd reason Today of Tasks from 10 Sep 2019 that is....

I noticed this too


I noticed that the first time you download tasks, or you are re starting using primegrid, and you have a app_config.xml to run it multitasked Primegrid or Boinc Manager still sends you 15 tasks instead of one. So you abort 14 tasks and boinc manager carries on and download only when needed.



Mostly because the end user is not settings the BOINC Manager Correctly.
This includes not settings the PrimeGrid preferences Correctly as well.
I have never had this issue running any PG MT Tasks.


I agree. I had this issue when using app_config.xml, but not using the new MT (Thanks Mike).


I actually had problems the other way, with the website settings being wrong, until I went in and set my different computers on different venues and 'fixed' it. NOW it runs exactly as Michael said it would and my pc's are humming right along as they should be. What that means is I downloaded some workunits without them being set to run as MT tasks and then had to abort them and download new ones that DO run as MT tasks. I have no clue if PG reissues the same workunits back to the same person or if I just got the next ones in the queue.

Dear Administrator, Mr Goetz ... there is still no additional work send, to BOINC 03 ... although the setting ... is to aminatin work for 8 days ...

please, let me know, why ?

sincerely, Grzegorz Roman Granowski ...


No one but you can see the name of the pc, Boinc 03 in this case, we can just see a list of them, so including the ID number would help alot. If you click on my name and then view computers you will see what I mean.

<app>
<name>llrDIV</name>
<fraction_done_exact/>
</app>
<app_version>
<app_name>llrDIV</app_name>
<plan_class>mt</plan_class>
<cmdline>-t 3</cmdline>
<avg_ncpus>3</avg_ncpus>
<max_ncpus>3</max_ncpus>
<max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
</app_version>

what am I doing wrong ?

PrimeGrid: Notice from BOINC
Your app_config.xml file refers to an unknown application 'llrDIV'. Known applications: 'llrMEGA', 'genefer17mega', 'ap26', 'llrSR5', 'llrTPS', 'genefer15', 'llrCUL', 'llrPPS', 'llrSOB', 'llrTRP', 'llrPPSE', 'llrESP', 'llrWOO', 'llr321', 'llrPSP', 'gcw_sieve', 'trp_sr2sieve', 'genefer16', 'genefer17low', 'genefer18', 'genefer19', 'genefer20', 'genefer', 'genefer_wr', 'pps_sr2sieve'


What Boinc is telling you is...hey your app_info file has a line in it referring to a type of file that's not on your pc...that's all. Once you get some of those it will go away, but if you ever switch to a different type of file it will come back again. It's a LONG standing Boinc issue that no one seems to care about fixing. The only way to 'fix it' is do what Michael suggested which is to use the new website settings and delete that app_info file altogether.

Is this one of the LLR projects that does better MT, or better as single-threaded?

For the short term, don't run MT. The tasks at the moment are tiny.

Keep an eye on them assuming they get bigger. There will be a point where going MT makes sense. It is almost bed time for me, and in the morning things may be different.


I am running them in about 12 minutes on a single cpu core of my i7-3612QM and getting about 16 credits for each workunit.
