    I received a job what has a 140 hours work time left, and still increasing! I don\'t know if it is correct and only the time calculation is wrong. Otherwise...

    It is a kind of virus?

      There\'s some big WUs for the moment. I have one that will take +/- 250 hours to finish. So let\'s crunch ... ;-)

        As I just wrote to Zabadoh, the estimated times don\'t seem to mean a lot. Keep an eye on the progress, and you will probably see them decreasing again. But whether that will happen in a day, a week, or a month I wouldn\'t venture to guess. :(

          I have a workunit on a pentium d 820 that has been running for 54 hours and is at 0.200% done. Should I abort it? I\'ve read about some long workunits but this seems a little excessive.

            You have processed 2 lines out of 1000. Maybe these 2 were unusually long to crunch for one or another reason. I think it\'s too early to decide and would keep on until 1% is done, and then decide.

              I have one at 9 days CPU time and 2.00%, and another that is close to that on a different machine. One of these has the highest deadline of anything on the host, so I am just going to let it run and see what happens.

                As an update the progress has moved from 0.200% to 0.400%. It has been running 24 hours a day for 136 hours. At this rate this thing will take forever to finish.

                  what to do?

                  ime letting mine run untill i hear from the \'powers to be\' we have not had a word from them in some time now so some thing must be going on..

                    Don\'t be surprised if you get a \"Maximum CPU time exceeded\" error. Read this and this. We are also waiting for a response from the \"powers that be\".

                      But the time is always getting more and more... :-( So it doesn\'t seem to finish
                      in time until Aug 19. Should I let it running, or rather cancel and get new?
                      Some time ago, I stopped one, which was still 0,00% after days... What\'s better?

                      Good luck,

                        I have something similar. It happened again with the second task I am cruching for SZTAKI. It seemed to be stuck showing 60%. So I closed the BOINC manager and immediately reopened it. It then showed 80% progress.

                        Am I cycling/wasting my processing time, should I be concerned?

                          I noticed that also. My guess (it\'s only a guess) is that during crunching the percentage number is not immediately updated at the end of a line, but only after the next line, so that the displayed percentage is always 1 trin behind the processed percentage, whereas on the start of Boinc it gets the correct display.

                          Anyhow, at the end my WUs get valid results after being compared with those of other crunchers. So, even if it is a bug (which I don\'t know for certain), I don\'t bother.

                            I have 16 SZTAKI WU\'s in queue. They all started saying 16:44 minutes and completion needed by 11-7-06. I have had the 1st one go thru the rotation with other jobs and it is at 40% and is now had 13 hours on its crunch time and the completion has climbed to 7:55 hours. This number seems to keep going up. I paused that WU and it started on an other one that SAID 16:44 and it is now 1:06 hours and 0% and still shows as 16:44 minutes. and on and on. These will not finish by the deadline at this rate. I am cureently cycling thru 6 other projects on the CPU. (P4D 820)2GB RAM

                              Please do not look at the completion time. It is wrong for at least 2 reasons: 1. the composition of the WUs has been changed recently, and as Boinc refers to history to estimate the length it cannot work 2. Boinc estimations cannot be correct as the algorithm works with deep recursion levels, and this simply cannot be estimated correctly at the beginning. So we must not bother with this time indication, and certainly not if it is rising during the crunching.

                              Your work behaves normally. 40% after 13 hours is normal. 0% after 1 hour is also normal. Maybe you got one of those famous \"1-line-units\" where the program knows only at the end of the processing of this single line that it is actually finished, and the percentage will suddenly jump to 100% after many hours.

                              I suggest that you quietly crunch 1 unit after the other and after the deadline you abort those that you couldn\'t finish (without feeling guilty for this!).

                                  my computer 169795 finished a 1a96387 WU in about 55 hrs. It seemed to get stuck at about 80% but I let it continue and finally got done, so don\'t worry. Same computer, different WU took nearly 111 hrs to complete. I was scared at first (ended up aborting 3/5 of my WU\'s) but let them finish. I know I would get more credits crunching for other projects but I don\'t care, I have decided to cruch since a lot of people are wary of the inaccurate \"time to completion\" and uncertain \"percentage done.\"

                                    Is this WU going anywhere or have I wasted 75 hours of proocessing time?


                                    my computer 169795 finished a 1a96387 WU in about 55 hrs. It seemed to get stuck at about 80% but I let it continue and finally got done, so don\'t worry. Same computer, different WU took nearly 111 hrs to complete. I was scared at first (ended up aborting 3/5 of my WU\'s) but let them finish. I know I would get more credits crunching for other projects but I don\'t care, I have decided to cruch since a lot of people are wary of the inaccurate \"time to completion\" and uncertain \"percentage done.\"

                                    Thank you for that Larry. I\'m also hoping they\'ll grant the credits sometime soon.

                                      OK, I\'m feeling a bit more relaxed about this now. My CPU time has gone up to 88:05:00 and progress still stuck on 80% with \'to completion\' rising rather than falling. But I\'ve worked out that there are two other guys cruching on the same thing, both in team L\'Alliance Francophone - Hi Francophones! So make sure you finish it seventh and [AF>France>Est>PACA>EDLS] Setiknocker else I don\'t get my credits and I\'ll be stuck no zero forever. sob :-( \"nil point\" LOL

                                        The wu 12935 has been created 1 Oct 2006, so that can be easier to finish it and to get a quorum.

                                          Thanks Nightbird. It\'s a puzzling at first to get a WU downloaded that says \"To complete 00:46:00\" and then eventually get up to 91:00:00 and still crunch away with 19:44:00 to go. Not a good initial estimate :) But I\'m looking forward to see it finish. Oh the thrill of it!

                                            OK, I\'m still puzzled. I let it go to 98:49:00 and decided to close BOINC to take a backup. On restarting the BOINC manager it immediately shot to 100% completed and uploaded the result.

                                            Is it coincidence, or does closing and opening the BOINC manager speed things up a little? :)

                                            For the other two guys crunching on this one, it\'s 98.49 CPU hours.

                                            I make that 967.12 credits for the 4 WUs I\'ve successfully completed so far. It\'s a little disappointing not to see the effort I\'ve put in going up against my avatar.

                                                  \'<\'Four Yorkshiremen\'>\'
                                                  I dream of having a pending WU with only one result to come!
                                                  \'<\'/Four Yorkshiremen\'>\'

                                                  The Unsent WU will go to someone else, but it might take a while, as a lot of hosts are backlogged with unexpectedly long-running tasks. In one of these threads Robert Mouris has observed an average waiting time of ten to twelve days from when a result is created, which is usually shortly after the error report or missed deadline that prompted the server to make the replacement, until it gets issued. I’d say your chances of getting credit eventually are good: with only one more successful result needed for validation, you can still afford three more erroneous or late results before the WU is considered a failure.

                                                  Note also that if the No Reply result is still being crunched, it may yet get turned in—there’s no penalty for being late unless a quorum is reached before the result is received. My G5 is still working on some WUs that were due October 19, and they’re getting validated successfully where there’s a quorum. (For rather disappointing credit returns, I might add: anywhere from 5% to 50% of what I claim, and mostly in the lower end of that range. But that’s another story.)

                                                    You are not alone, i am faceing the same problem and it is very irriating. Other projects run fine but this one just sits there.
                                                    Secondly, to completion counter seems to run in reverse and the WU starts to get never ending.

                                                    It\'s still strange. I\'ve been watching another WU sitting there at 90%, looking like it was never going to end. So I shut down BOINC and restarted, and again as for a previous WU it immediately declared itself finished and went into upload mode.

                                                      Is this thread a comedy or a parody? Dont worry i am sailing in the same boats as you chapt to a perfect T.
                                                      By the way why have they not solved it as yet?

                                                      I have 16 SZTAKI WU\'s in queue. They all started saying 16:44 minutes and completion needed by 11-7-06. I have had the 1st one go thru the rotation with other jobs and it is at 40% and is now had 13 hours on its crunch time and the completion has climbed to 7:55 hours. This number seems to keep going up. I paused that WU and it started on an other one that SAID 16:44 and it is now 1:06 hours and 0% and still shows as 16:44 minutes. and on and on. These will not finish by the deadline at this rate. I am cureently cycling thru 6 other projects on the CPU. (P4D 820)2GB RAM

                                                      Please do not look at the completion time. It is wrong for at least 2 reasons: 1. the composition of the WUs has been changed recently, and as Boinc refers to history to estimate the length it cannot work 2. Boinc estimations cannot be correct as the algorithm works with deep recursion levels, and this simply cannot be estimated correctly at the beginning. So we must not bother with this time indication, and certainly not if it is rising during the crunching.

                                                      Your work behaves normally. 40% after 13 hours is normal. 0% after 1 hour is also normal. Maybe you got one of those famous \"1-line-units\" where the program knows only at the end of the processing of this single line that it is actually finished, and the percentage will suddenly jump to 100% after many hours.

                                                      I suggest that you quietly crunch 1 unit after the other and after the deadline you abort those that you couldn\'t finish (without feeling guilty for this!).

                                                      I have a WU (1a9d6387-6dd8-4e3d-a31c-ae75a2daaf6d_eae6639a-ea2b-4228-8687-4327d12c005e_2193_2) which earlier had a

                                                      CPU time of 71:59:24 progress 80%, remaining 15:54:35

                                                      It is now

                                                      CPU time of 75:04:42 progress 80%, remaining 16:31:39

                                                      Is this WU going anywhere or have I wasted 75 hours of proocessing time?

                                                      Cheers, iX

                                                        The wu 12935 has been created 1 Oct 2006, so that can be easier to finish it and to get a quorum.

                                                        I and another have finished this WU and a third is Server State = over, Outcome = no reply. A fourth is unsent. What is the chance of getting any credit for this WU or for any of the 9 WU I started around a month ago and completed soon after?

                                                        I am finally getting some credit coming through. And also Congratulations!

                                                        I\'ve been chosen as the SZTAKI Desktop Grid user of the day!

                                                        WooooHooooo!!!!

                                                            Are you saying that the % done is always = 0
                                                            Since how many hours are you running the wu ?

                                                            maybe, you can try :
                                                            - to shut down Boinc and restart it here
                                                            or
                                                            - to shut down Boinc and reboot your machine here

                                                            That can help sometimes.
