http://vcsc.cs.uh.edu/virtual-prairie/home.php tells me that "The project's database server is down. Please check back in a few hours." been like that since early afternoon UTC -0400. I wonder whether they'll be up before the deadline on previously-downloaded tasks comes and goes.

VP is coming back to life!

. . . uploading finished work at least.

Now all it needs is to award points to clear up a massive amount of pendings and download new work.

One of my four hosts has a lot of trouble with the current work at VP. It's a C2D (T7200) running WinXP Pro (32-bit) with >3GB RAM. Almost all WUs error out after a few minutes and give the dreaded "Output file...absent" message in the BOINC manager. (The few that have finished okay do so in 1-2 minutes and still pay 15 'stones...I won't complain about those! ).

Here is the detail of a typical failed WU. Here is the problem host.

Looking at the Windows Task Manager, it doesn't seem like the host is short on memory. I've even tried shutting down as much as possible to free up memory and I still get the errors. Even if I run only one VP task -- and no other BOINC WU -- they still fail. Resetting and detaching/re-attaching doesn't seem to have a affect.

I posted this same message to the VP forum here but didn't get anywhere.

Thanks for any ideas.

Mark,

I looked at one of your failing WU's and it shows the following error:
- Unhandled Exception Record -
Reason: Access Violation (0xc0000005) at address 0x00405A54 write attempt to address 0x000607E4


According to this site http://www.0xc0000005.com/
there are several things that can cause this error, RAM, drivers etc.

Looks like the server has run out of space, because all my uploads are failing and retrying with the error - 'can't write at server' or something similar.
