    Hello! I\'m having a problem with this project. In BOINC in task tab the progress (%) is on 0%. But the CPU usage is 100%. After 46 minutes of running I suspended the task and started it again and it was on 100%. And it writes that \'Ready to report\'. But when will it happen?
    Thx for the answers... (Lehet magyarul is :) )

      Hello!

      Welcome aboard! Thanks for joining the crew!

      I\'m having a problem with this project. In BOINC in task tab the progress (%) is on 0%. But the CPU usage is 100%. After 46 minutes of running I suspended the task and started it again and it was on 100%.

      The progress(%) not incrementing is not a problem (as stated elsewhere in the forum), and I am sure that the WU was running fine. Unfortunately (don\'t feel bad, you didn\'t know better) when you suspended/resumed the task, it interrupted the WU and caused the dreaded empty output (see your result and you will find \"APP: Output is empty, placing msg in out.txt\"). This is what happens when the empty output occurs too often - too many successful results and no credit granted.

      And it writes that \'Ready to report\'. But when will it happen?

      BOINC will report the WU the next time it talks to the servers. The version of BOINC (5.4.11) you are using attempts to report WUs in batches, i.e. waits to see if other WUs will be ready to report so only one database query happens for multiple WUs (this reduces the DB load a little). Newer versions of BOINC (5.8.4) (still not public release, use at own risk) report the results as soon as they are uploaded.

      My advice is to let the WU run without suspending it, restarting BOINC, or rebooting your computer if at all possible. Also let BOINC decide when to run certain tasks and when to report them (unless you are on dial-up, then you can hit the \"Update\" button in the \"Projects\" tab to report the tasks). This is some friendly advice, you can take it or leave it.

      Again, welcome to SZTAKI!
