Message 84380 - Posted: 14 Jan 2018, 17:21:40 UTC

Hello,

Having a confusing issue with one of my Linux BOINC clients. It was working fine for some days but then I noticed it stopped processing. My other clients still work just fine.

Any new task getting downloaded, for multiple projects goes directly to status "Suspended - user request"

This seems to be a different status than when I specifically would suspend a task or a project, because then the status is "Task suspended by user", and also shows in event log as such.

I don't see any event log update after downloading a new task when it is quickly switching to "Suspended - user request".

I'm using version 7.6.31 64b and Ubuntu 16.04

I tried the following:

Aborting all tasks
Resetting projects
Removing projects and re-adding them (same behavior whether I use account manager or add projects directly)
Trying different projects (get same behavior from LHC vs CitizenScienceGrid and others)
Turned off all automatic suspending options such as CPU usage or memory in the options.
Removing BOINC application and re-installing it

I'm really stumped for now, and didn't notice any people having similar issues. I'm new to this so maybe I'm doing (or not doing) something stupid.

Ideas appreciated,


Aaron

FYI - here is a clean startup event log, notice last line is automatic, not sure why. No option to start the task, and when I suspend it and resume it, it just goes back to this status (after the manual suspend resume @ 44 minutes)

Thanks Floyd, that did the trick. Not sure why it worked, but I'll know what to try next time.
