Hey there, all you benevolent heart geniuses,

I got my first 2 projects a while ago, and this is the second time they've reset back to 0% progress after getting to 89-98% completion. I would suspend them and reboot the PC, or shut down BOINC and reboot, and they would completely restart. It's just a bit annoying, since I've taken two cores and put what seems like a good 25+ hours each into the two of them.

This doesn't seem to happen for other systems like Poem or rosetta; is this to be expected for DENIS? Do I need to make sure they are all completed in one sitting? Maybe this problem won't happen if I don't take the precaution of suspending them before I reboot the PC?

Stay frosty, my CPU friends.

I don't know if these tasks checkpoint but if they don't, and that sounds like what is happening, they will start from 0 if you reboot and it won't matter if you suspend them first.

We're tracking a couple problems in this thread:
http://denis.usj.es/denisathome/forum_thread.php?id=105

Namely:
- Some tasks aren't checkpointing properly
- Some tasks aren't finishing gracefully, and are instead starting completely over infinitely.

:/

You might want to subscribe to that other thread, and hope the developers can fix it up. I've set "No New Tasks" on all my PCs, until it can work correctly.

Thanks, you two!

I'm glad to know that I'm not alone.

Running the Beta work and they re-start from 0 after re-booting (Windows 7 64 bit OS).

Running the beta application and it picks up from where it was interrupted by a shutdown.

Running Linux 64-Bit.

Hey guys, some feedback on running the Beta WU (v. 1.03).
I suspended the project (about 40% done already) and switched it on again, the process started from scratch (0%) = no checkpoints?
So in total to reach 100% took about 26hours and ended with this message:
24.07.2016 21:20:29 | DENIS@Home | Task BETA_23071039_8000_0401_0 exited with zero status but no 'finished' file

.... then started again from 0%

From reading these posts it seems the Windows client has the problem with checkpointing.

The Linux client seems to be ok with checkpoints - rebooted without problems.
