Appears SR Base has suffered another Database Crash within last hour or so.
Can connect to web site but there are all kinds of SQL error messages.
Warning: mysqli::mysqli(): (HY000/2002): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (111) in /home/boincadm/projects/sr5/html/inc/db_conn.inc on line 39 Warning: mysqli::query(): Couldn't fetch mysqli in /home/boincadm/projects/sr5/html/inc/db_conn.inc on line 63 Database Error

I have found a bad windows bug thats causing the PC to restart (VSS service). Iam updating now win10 to latest updates in hope that can be fixed it. I think the database is corrupt. And thats happened before I have started a backup :/

I had a power cut here, the database crashed, trying to restore the database backup from earlier today, sorry for that. This can take a while...

Iam lost in these old BOINC documentation files, I can remember to setup this for another project but in my test it doesnt working:

I have a plan_class_spec.xml file:
<plan_classes>
<plan_class>
        <name>opencl_ati_101</name>
        <gpu_type>amd</gpu_type>
        <opencl/>
        <min_core_client_version>70000</min_core_client_version>
        <min_opencl_version>101<min_opencl_version>
        <min_gpu_ram_mb>256</min_gpu_ram_mb>
        <gpu_ram_used_mb>256</gpu_ram_used_mb>
        <cpu_frac>.1</cpu_frac>
        <gpu_peak_flops_scale>.2</gpu_peak_flops_scale>
</plan_class>
</plan_classes>


APP structure:
test
--00002
---windows_x86_64_opencl_ati_101 (I dont know if this is correct)

bin/update_versions...
Found app version directory for: GPU72 00002 windows_x86_64_opencl_ati_101
platform not found: windows_x86_64_opencl_ati_101

What Iam missing?

Because of the exporting stats would be nice to have a script to import all the stuff again.
Would be helpful after a db crash like mine.

You can try this. It looks like it was an older issue.

Do you have also tried an older version of BOINC?

Its better to buy another cooler. I dont want to make ad but Noctua is the best on the market. With my old fan you have 3 cables for different speed. Its always running on a fixed speed and its nearly silent.

This is actually from example_app's template.
Right now, I just want to build a simple server that can handle job submit.
Thanks!


Do you have an input file? And whats your create_work command line?

Post:
Thanks a lot it worked. I just had to specify the name correctly and it worked. Now wrapper is able to execute the exe file for computation. But unfortunately I need a little bit help, my sampleimage.exe file is executed but it is not able to read the input image file present in project directory, after executing the sampleimage.exe file it gives error the image not found (the error check is present in my application code, which checks if image is read proceed otherwise abort and print the error image not found, and this log in stderr.txt confirms that wrapper has executed .exe file successfully) So what I think now that my application code when run through windows wrapper is not able to manipulate/read the input file from projects directory.


You must specify the input file by the work generation.

Like "sampleimage.exe" or as defined in version.xml application's physical name shown below in version.xml :
<physical_name>sampleimage_1.0_windows_x86_64.exe</physical_name>
<logical_name>sampleimage</logical_name>
?

and thanks a lot for giving advice, I hope it works out.


Yes, its for windows, linux is another story.

Out of curiosity I also tried to run wrapper_26016_windows_x86_64.exe present in client projects directory to see whether it executes sampleimage_windows_x86_64.exe, it displayed can't parse job.xml.


<job_desc>
<task>
<application>sampleimage</application>
<stdout_filename>console.log</stdout_filename>
</task>
</job_desc>

change the application to the full exe name.

Its better to test the app standalone first, copy all files into a folder, you need also a job.xml file + wrapper. Execute the wrapper and check the stderr.txt. Maybe you also need a command line.
