And so this odyssey finally came to an end.

The faulty unit was sent back 2+ hours ago:

Code: Select all

16:06:40:WU01:FS00:Server responded WORK_ACK (400)


But the WU is not reported here yet:

Only two older attempts showed up as of submitting this post, and they are pretty dated as well.

I hope this WU didn't stall other slots for days (as it did for me), so another reason for reporting it here.

The continuous cycling is an unfortunate bug in the linux version of the client or folding core. The wrong level of error is being detected, so instead of stopping processing of a WU after several tries and reporting as faulty, it just keeps cycling through. Not sure when it will get fixed. The check for this does work in Windows.

Thanks for reporting this UofM.MartinK. The faulty unit has been flagged to the researchers for review and action.

The stats for the server that hosts this project are delayed and a few days out of sync. See viewtopic.php?f=18&t=35864#p340220 The necessary folks are aware of this and looking into it

That's what I suspected, thanks for the confirmation! I might include some rules in the automated log analysis to learn about this type of glitch earlier, not after almost a week :)

Thanks, glad it's flagged & properly reported!

Is there any "automatic" or "semi-automatic" mechanism to notify the researchers about WU's sent back to the WS/CS with the "faulty" flag?
If so, is that method depending on the stats server analysis being completed?

Or are faulty WUs usually just dealt with when the bulk results are looked at for further processing for a particular project?

Also, which server is keeping track about how often a unit was returned as faulty, and then decides to not hand it out anymore?
Is it just the WS+CS, no stats processing involved?
I am asking because I got the WU in question assigned on 2020-07-30 14:43:24, and
https://apps.foldingathome.org/wu#proje ... ne=3&gen=0
shows "Faulty" assigned 2020-07-27 06:33:20, returned 2020-07-27 18:18:43, credited 2020-07-27 06:37:43
and "Faulty 2" assigned 2020-07-27 06:37:50, returned 2020-07-27 18:18:46, credited 2020-07-27 06:44:00

Which raises two questions:
1) Why was this WU assigned twice within 4 minutes, before being returned once? Or are the values for "credited" and "returned" swapped?
2) Why was this WU "re"-assigned about 3 days after at least two allegedly independent fault reports?

Just curious and trying to understand how F@h works and perhaps finding "new" bugs :)

The respective work servers keep track of how many times a WU has failed and also reissued. Most projects are set to reissue a WU 5 times if it has been returned in faulty. In most cases, faulty submissions are due to instabilties in hardware or a misconfiguration on the user's system (e.g., missing or bad driver that spits out failures at 0%) and a reissue will return a successful return. However, sometimes the WU instructions itself can cause failures and in such cases, all 5 retries would have failed.

The researchers keep a eye out on the overall failure rate during the course of a project to pull it back if the failure rates are above nominal.

To answer your two questions:
1. You're right -- the values for "credited" and "returned" are swapped -- see https://github.com/FoldingAtHome/fah-issues/issues/1383
2. It will get reassigned 5 times before it is permanently failed. While reassignments do not necessarily have to happen soon after a previous failure (it depends on the assignment queue depth and assignment determination logic), this may have been reissued twice but was never returned before it was assigned to you. Or it may have just sat it in the queue for 3 days before it was reassigned.

To explain the first possibility further, p14127 has a timeout of 1.6 days (which means it gets reassigned if the work isn't returned in 1.6 days). The last recorded (failed) return was at 2020-07-27 06:44:00. Assuming it was reissued to someone else within the same hour of being returned, the timeout for that assignment expired around 2020-07-28 21:00:00. Assuming it was reissued immediately, the timeout for this assignment expired around 2020-07-30 13:00:00. At this point, assuming it was reissued to you, it aligns with the time you got the assignment at 2020-07-30 14:43:24. Of course, this is just speculation as the WU log we saw logs credits, not assignments that have no returns. There's isn't a publicly available place for us to verify this.

Given the server is not currently reporting WU returns (see a number of reports elsewhere) it may be it isn't seeing either faulty or completed returns anyway and so defaulting to the timeout reissue ... In the past delays between WUs being received by CS and arriving at WS have caused this delay.

If as anandjanju and I speculate this is what is occurring then when the system catches up you may find that the WU Status will show you return in fifth place (when sorted by issued timestamp).

BTW, I _think_ my WU was sent back to the original WS, not an associated CS:
Code: Select all

So most likely the WS kept track of the 'faulties' - even more curious now to see what the WU history looks like once stats caught up :)

It could be possible that the "receiving WUs" part of the WS is not talking properly to the "processing and generating new WUs" part of the server ... Hopefully someone will let the researcher know to look at this ... The Completed WUs and/or Reports of Failure should at some point catch up though ... and yes, I am curious as well to see what the history will end up looking like :eugeek:

The endless-loop problem needs to be fixed. Some versionf of FAHClient/FAHCore do catch this loop and some don't, so somebody/somwhere knows how to fix it.

Hm... above, Joe_H said Linux is affected, Windows not. Error/return code handling is a little different on these platforms, and it could even be the GROMACS package/library which behaves differently.

Using strace and some other tools on Linux to further debug the issue is certainly within my capabilities, but I should first know what others learned about the problem already.

On an initial glance, I didn't find the corresponding issue on https://github.com/FoldingAtHome/fah-issues/issues

And then getting access to that "bad WU" again would be very helpful, unfortunately I didn't make a backup :) Because hitting another one behaving like that might take a while, after all, this was about 1:7000 for me...

Creating a list of applicable projects is one place to start. I doubt that this is the only project that has this problem.

Opening a ticket on Github that can collect our current understanding is another place to start. Is this best described as "Error ABCDE on Linux causes an infinite loop on projects XXXXX"? (We can refine the title later as we learn more about the problem.

I thought that someone had already posted this problem in the past, the bug has been around for a while and dates back at least to 7.5.1. The report might have been against the folding core, issues migrated to that area are not visible. When I get a chance, I will take a closer look at the visible issues and see if it is there.

The stats for the workserver handling this WU finally got processed... :)

https://apps.foldingathome.org/wu#proje ... ne=3&gen=0

It turns out, hanging in the endless loop for six days was worth 1.5k points after all :)

BTW, over 2 Million WUs just got added to the database, I think this is the most impressive spike I've ever seen on the Credit Log:

All those missing credit reports wanting to be set free ... and the dam burst.
