FAHClient throws exception (Fedora 26)

Postby fhew » Sat Apr 18, 2020 6:57 pm

I just upgraded to version 7.6.9 and when the FAHControl is running, the FAHClient emits the following message
onto its stdout/stderr every 2-3 seconds:

17:52:10:ERROR:std::exception: std::bad_cast

And stopping FAHClient quiets FAHControl.

Fortunately, everything else seems to work.
(Running on Fedora 26.)

Hi fhew and welcome to the forum.

This is an unusual error message. Can you please post more of the log? (please wrap it in Code tags) That we we have more details on where this error is coming from.
F@h is now the top computing platform on the planet and nothing unites people like a dedicated fight against a common enemy. This virus affects all of us. Lets end it together.

There is nothing unusual in the log.
It and the client proceeds normally.
And as soon as I start FAHControl, and it connects to FAHClient, the client starts
spewing the exception every ~2 seconds.

Stopping FAHControl stops the exception... restarting FAHControl restarts the exception.

Note that having the browser based controller connected does NOT cause the exceptions.

More information:

1/ It turns out that FAHViewer ALSO causes FAHClient to throw the same exception
A set of 3 exceptions every 5 seconds.
In this case, so as to not confuse symptoms, I started the FAHViewer directly without using
FAHControl (Because FAHControl on it own causes Client to throw the exceptions.)

2/ The Viewer never does render the molecule.
I used Wireshark to sniff the conversation between the Client and the Viewer when the viewer starts
and got the following conversation:

Code: Select all
.[H.[2JWelcome to the FAHClient command server.
> updates add 0 5 $heartbeat
updates add 1 5 $slot-info

>
>

[
  {
    "id": "00",
    "status": "RUNNING",
    "description": "cpu:3",
    "options": {},
    "reason": "",
    "idle": False
  }
]
---
updates add 2 5 $(simulation-info 0)
updates add 3 5 $(trajectory 0)
