Message 18234 - Posted: 5 Jul 2008, 3:22:57 UTC - in response to Message 18233.  

I do it so it comes up automatically when I boot the system.


Looks a lot like my system. :-)


I just restarted it and the error log is empty and the logfile is:


You'll need to get BOINC to actually crash before something gets written to the error log.

Those look like normal enough start up messages.

climate prediction is still suspended and the only work units that will get new tasks come from setiathome. Do you want me to enable other work units?


If the theory is that CPDN is crashing things, then you'll need to enable work fetch and see if you can get BOINC to crash.

Mine is a little sloppy for historical reasons. I ought to clean it up sometime, but not right now.

OK. It had the suspended one in the list, so I resumed it.
It has over 2000 hours to go, so I will let it run along with the setiathomes that will get new tasks. It is also finishing up a world community grid unit that has a little over 15 hours to go.

It now writes this to stderr (or stdout) -- anyway to my monitor window. It used to write this to the error log.??

It may not matter, but I wonder why it changed.

These are benign messages, telling that the application isn't build with the latest BOINC API. You can ignore it.

I know I can ignore it (even though I do not know which application is saying that).

What I am concerned about is that they used to appear in my error log, and now they do not. They appear on my terminal, as though the 2>>$ERRORLOG were not in my start-up script.

They are written to the stderr.txt file of the application that is running. This file is amongst thing of what's uploaded to the server when you upload your work. You can find it in the slot directory that the application runs in.

I can find those easily. Right now there are 4 slots used: 0, 1, 2, and 5.
Each has a stderr.txt file with stuff like that (and other stuff) in them.

But your comment does not explain why such messages come out on my screen, starting with when I put the 6.2.11 debug version in. Probably I "feature" I expect.

I have had both my systems running boinc client 6.2.11 debug since late Sunday evening 24/7. They are running all my usual applications inclucing climate prediction things. No crashes of the boinc client yet.

Well, that is good news and bad news. Good news for you of course, but bad news if the developers try to figure out why it was crashing in the first place. Do post back when the client crashes again. Eagerly awaiting. Fingers crossed. (for bad news for once). :-))

I think of it as no news. Recall that it did not crash for years, using various versions of boinc client. then a little while ago, it started crashing with 5.10.45 after that had run for months (?) without crashing; since it first came out. Then it crashed a few times, then it would run a week without crashing, then the other machine, also running 5.10.45, crashed a couple of times. So the fact that 6.2.11 runs for a little over two days does not tell us much.

N.B.: the machine did not crash. The OS did not crash, just the boinc client and all its children.

OK, my old machine just had boinc client 6.2.11 debug and its children crash. The valinuxl.error.log file, in its entirety, said:

SIGSEGV: segmentation violation

The last few lines of valinuxl.boinc.log are:

Actually, I mis-spoke: some boinc processes did not die:

valinuxl:boinc[~]$ ps -fu boinc
UID PID PPID C STIME TTY TIME CMD
boinc 6967 6965 0 06:01 ? 00:00:54 sshd: boinc@pts/1

sshd is my connection from my main machine.
The two wcg_faah_autodock processes are work units for World Community Grid. I killed those two wcg processes and restarted the boinc client. There was only one wcg task in the list, and it was running. It was a dddt, not faah.

Was this what you expected to find? I thought the debug version of 6.2.11 boinc-clent would put out more than the production version of 5.10.45. Did I run it wrong of something?

I've forwarded it to the developers. Perhaps one of them comes to this thread to ask his own questions, else I'll find something in my email in the morning to ask you. ;-)

The system's temperatures, etc., were normal:

(According to Intel, these processors should not exceed 70C, and they never have.)

I looked at the addresses where these things have crashed. They seem to be from a limited choice of addresses, and both machines use some of the same ones. From this I infer that it is not just random crashes but software ones. These machines have similar operating systems; one is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 and the other is CentOS 4.something (the latest). Both have two physical Intel processors although the newer machine has way more memory and the processors on it are hyperthreaded, so you could say it has four processors.

Those addresses come in pairs

I looked at the addresses where these things have crashed. They seem to be from a limited choice of addresses, and both machines use some of the same ones. From this I infer that it is not just random crashes but software ones. These machines have similar operating systems; one is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 and the other is CentOS 4.something (the latest). Both have two physical Intel processors although the newer machine has way more memory and the processors on it are hyperthreaded, so you could say it has four processors.

Those addresses come in pairs

Machine T
0x80918c2 0xe6d420
0x808e90a 0x679420
0x80918c2 0xe6d420

Machine V
0x808e90a 0xa4e908
0x808e90a 0xa4e908
0x80918c2 0x138908


This machine is Machine V, and the segmentation violation took place at:

0x80918c2 0xa4e908

as before. This seems to be in library: /lib/tls/libc.so.6 On Machine T, it does not seem to tell me where the segmentation violation is by name, only by address.

Here is something from machine V:

$ ldd boinc.unmodified
libz.so.1 => /usr/lib/libz.so.1 (0x00c71000)
libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x00b55000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/libc.so.6 (0x00a27000)
libm.so.6 => /lib/tls/libm.so.6 (0x00b5b000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/tls/libpthread.so.0 (0x00d00000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x00a0d000)

$ rpm -qf /lib/tls/libc.so.6
glibc-2.3.4-2.39


and here is the same thing from machine T:

$ ldd boinc.unmodified
linux-gate.so.1 => (0x005b0000)
libz.so.1 => /usr/lib/libz.so.1 (0x00614000)
libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x005f5000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x00110000)
libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x005cc000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x005fb000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x00469000)

$ cat trillian.error.log
SIGSEGV: segmentation violation
Stack trace (2 frames):
/home/boinc/BOINC/boinc[0x80918c2]
[0xcdb420]

While I do not see hydrogen@home applications start before the crashes, it seems to be a pattern that that task downloads soon before. I am going to let the boinc client run but to fetch no more hydrogen@home work units be fetched.

Excuse my complete ignorance but what is trillian.error.log doing in a BOINC log? Googling this only ever shows up on Seti forum and now here.

Used to use an alternate msnmgr called Trillian, so is this something u use and would you mind running BOINC if so without this program active?

Sorry.

I have two computers and one is named trillian and the other is named valinuxl when it is running Linux (and it is named valinuxw when running Windows).

trillian.error.log is the error log (stderr) the boinc client writes on the trillian machine. trillian.boinc.log is the normal log (stdout) the boinc client writes on the trillian machine.

Similarly for the valinuxl machine.

In the mean time, I've forwarded all information you've given to the developers. I am now waiting for one of them to tell me what to ask you, or him to dive into the thread all by himself. Whichever comes first. ;-)

Should I continue to post crash data, or do you agree that I have posted enough of them until developers have suggestions.

Just a reminder: both machines are running boinc client 6.2.11 debug version (although I see no difference between it and the 5.10.45 non-debug version I used to run).

What seems to be missing is complete stacktraces, but that's why I am waiting for Rom to show up.

I'm not remembering the whole thread (and it's way too early/late - depending on how you look at it - to go back through it).

Is there something that seems to trigger the crash? If there is, you could always run it under gdb. I've only done it once, and with help, so I'm not any use beyond the suggestion.
