v6.34 beta Windows Server 2k3 crash

Postby alpha754293 » Sun Oct 09, 2011 11:46 pm

On my 8-core system running Windows Server 2k3 x64 Enterprise Ed.

The exception unknown software exception (0xc0000005) occured in the application at location 0x7d621648.

Damn, I should have saved my v6.30 before upgrading. I guess that I'll try the V7 client now.

*edit*
re: V7 beta client. SERIOUSLY!?!?! 91 MB??? wow.

software exception is a memory problem, not a fah problem. There is nothing wrong with the v6.34 client. And it's beta only in name. It would have been released to production if V7 had taken any longer to come out.

My last V7 download less than a 1/3rd that size. Which one did you download?

Indeed. I just downloaded them all off this website https://fah-web.stanford.edu/projects/F ... etaRelease and then checked their size. The Windows edition is 25MB, OS-X is 17MB, and Linux is about 7.5MB.

@7im
Softwares can cause memory problems. Don't believe me, try segfaulting your system. ;o)

(Granted, no, this particular issue wasn't a seg fault, but to say that an exception problem is that of the memory and not of the software, would not be entirely accurate, or taking into account ALL of the possible sources, eh? And quite hubris of someone who isn't even on the developing/working group (at least not to my knowledge). And rather Apple-like of you.)

And considering all of the other runs/tests that I've been able to conduct with the v6 client, and given that nothing has changed (hardware or otherwise), and that I can run multi-hour FEAs just fine;

I didn't SAY the download was 91 MB. The download was obviously less than that. But for a program that went from a few MB to a 91 MB install...kinda ridiculous. As far as I know/can tell, I don't think that there are any real performance advantages, and if there are any, I am going to assume that they're either negligble, statistically insignificant, or within the margin of error of the measurements. But I can't really say that for certain given that the WU assignments between v6 and v7 probably isn't identical, and that I've only ran the one WU.

(The system actually just started a 41-day crash simulation run. And the only errors that I'm getting right now are negative Jacobians which I expect, because of the model.)

It would be incorrect to assume my diagnosis was full and complete. That error is simply most often not caused by fah. I did not preclude other less likely causes, so nothing was reckless by any measure.

It might, however, be premature to make an assumption about the V7 client with only 1 WU under your belt?

I will leave you to your assumptions. Please let us know when you prove any of them correct, or incorrect.

Yea....I ended up not running it at all instead.
