    A new error for me. The results I have returned in the last week or so fail to validate with a too many results error. When I look at the WU this is true with a bunch of comp errors in ahead of me and my WU as the only complete one. Oh well!!!

      I have the same error with WU 38300. The problem is that the \"max # of error/total/success results 4, 5, 4\" is incoherent with the minimum quorum of 3. In this case 3 jobs were initially sent out. 1 job returns in error, the 4th job is sent out, another job returns in error, the 5th job is sent out, a 3rd job returns in error, and the 6th job is sent out. Then it is impossible to respect the maximum limits.

      Either these limits should be higher or the system should stop sending out jobs after the second error. Sending out 3 new jobs after 3 errors means that the total number of results will be at least 6, which is not allowed. Other projects have much higher limits, Einstein for example \"20, 20, 20\".

      I feel that my crunching is not very useful to mathematics right now. Either the WUs are invalid because of this or they crash because of maximum CPU time (despite following WimTea\'s advice). My last valid result was returned on the 18th of August. Since then I got only invalid results (3 WUs, lost crunching time 411 hours).

      Because of Sztaki I had neglected CPDN for many weeks, so I go back to them for a while. See you again on the 1st of October!

          I think that he is on a well deserved holiday, which means that Nightbird is alone, but she doesn\'t live in Budapest... Probably there is nobody on location for the next one and a half weeks.

            I\'ve got a similar situation. My last work unit granted credit was returned on July 17. Since then, I\'ve got two units still pending credit and one rather big unit that looks like it\'s getting thrown out. That kind of annoys me -- after 246,998.44 seconds of computing time (nearly 3 days), I get 0 of my 587.44 claimed credit due to client error.

            The one unit I have right now is estimating over 6 days of computing time to complete. It was sent to me 6 days ago, and is only 2.4% complete. With my current settings (like resource share), my SZTAKI work buffer claims to be 73 days! I\'m not even sure this work unit will make the deadline, and after my last large unit was thrown out with an error, I\'m reluctant to spend so much time and have it come to nothing again. I\'d rather put my computer to work for projects were the results will be successful and accepted (and granted credit). I don\'t check the boards here a lot, but if anyone has some status/updates on this sort of situation, please point me to it.

            Because of Sztaki I had neglected CPDN for many weeks, so I go back to them for a while. See you again on the 1st of October!


            I think I\'m going to do the same thing. Considering the unit I currently have already has 3 client errors, wasting any more time on it would be pointless. I\'m glad I saw that now before I spent a lot of time on it. I\'m going to abort this unit and block work unit requests until I get some news about improvements here.

              robert.mouris - thanks for pointing out about holidays; yes, Adam deserves it and I hope he\'s enjoying it.

              But there are still old questions unanswered and support went down comparing to pre-optimalization (before it was clearly realized that client can go 30x faster) and pre-bug era (before it was found, partly due to optimalization, the results are in question).
              I was talking about horizonts of months, not past few days.

                Me to with this one. Mine is a good result, gets no credit as other units have been aborted or whatever. What a waste of time and energy. Mike
