13434/13435 Stalled Work Units

Postby Dotious » Mon Jan 11, 2021 9:48 pm

I have received 3 WUs for 13434 and 13435 over the last couple of days. All WUs have eventually completed, but each WU threw a "WU_stalled" flag 2 - 3 times per simulation. I haven't seen this on any other work units over the last few months. These WUs have all been assigned to my RTX 2070 Super.

13434 (248, 1, 28)
13434 (104, 3, 45)
13435 (348,1,21)

Welcome to the F@H Forum Dotious,

Do you know what you (or your system) were doing just before you encountered the "WU_STALLED (127 = 0x7f)" error? Is this something that you can reproduce on demand? If yes, what exact steps do you take?

Thanks for the welcome, PantherX,

These have all occurred while I was away from the computer, so I'm not sure if something occurred in the background. I haven't tried to reproduce on demand. I run folding@home at a throttled power setting (70%) using the EVGA X1 app. This keeps the clock near stock speeds. I've folded for a few months with this power setting and haven't encountered these stalls until the last few days. These are larger WUs, do you think that throttling might affect it?

I haven't received anymore of these projects since I posted. All WUs I have received in the last day have completed without issues. I'll keep an eye on the logs and see if it pops up again.

If you're reducing the power target for the GPU, then it shouldn't have any impact on WUs as long as the target is within specifications. If it is too low, I think the GPU would become unstable so as long as it is within normal range, it would be fine.

Looks like I may have been a bit hasty singling out these projects. I had two other work units from other projects give the "WU_stalled" flag last night. I forgot to note which projects. Now I'm thinking it may have been a driver issue with the latest from Nvidia (461.09). I reverted back to 460.89 last night and I haven't had any stall since then. I'll keep an eye on my logs the next few days.

Good news is all WUs ended up finishing and returning results, even if they took an extra 30-60 minutes each.

Humm, I really want to update the Nvidia drivers to get the Security fix but they haven't updated the Studio Driver (460.89) so I don't know if that's a driver issue or not :(

I haven't seen any issues being reported with the Game Ready Driver (461.09 WHQL) so at this point, I would say that it's unlikely. However, you may consider doing a fresh installation where you select the option to do a clean install. Alternatively, you can use NVCleanstall (https://www.techpowerup.com/download/te ... leanstall/) which I haven't used but heard good things about it.
