    It reports success, was finished 3 days after being issued. What\'s going on?

          As far as I can see the project admin hasn\'t been heard from in 61 days, the forum moderator in 267. Is this project still viable or is it all but dead?

          I did find a post in a different message board that may explain some of our problems:

          Here are some tips that a user can do to give their WUs the best chance for valid results:

          • Set general prefs Leave applications in memory while preempted? to YES.
          • Do not exit BOINC if possible. That means running your hosts 24/7 and, sorry, no more daily reboots.
          • If you feel that the % complete is stuck - don\'t worry, just look at CPU time for reassurance that the WU is still going. The % complete is representative of the # of lines completed (e.g. a 5-line WU will jump from 0% to 20% when the first line is complete, then to 40% upon completion of the second line, and so on. A 1-line WU will only jump to 100% complete when it is actually done. Keep in mind that each line will take a totally different amount of time to complete)
          • Ignore the \"To completion\" time, it\'s irrelevant due to the nature of the algorithm used in the application.
          • If you are still nervous about a WU even if the CPU time is still counting, abort it. If you stop BOINC and restart to get the WU going again, the result will be no good and will not validate and you won\'t get credit for it anyway. Although I do encourage you to stay with it (it may take 100+ hours), but if you aren\'t comfortable with it, then don\'t bother. Worst case for staying with it = Max CPU time error.
          • Be patient.
          • Expect to lose some credit due to WUs getting too many success/total/error results. (the too many success or total results happens when hosts produce successful yet invalid results, usually {but not always} by stopping/restarting BOINC. By aborting it produces an error result.)



          Hope this helps some people that are feeling a bit uneasy with this project. Happy Crunching!

            I am not trying to defend the admins here but there are some items posted under \"News\" on the SZTAKI home page that are newer than 61 days. The information certainly isn\'t very helpful but it does tend to explain why the latest WU\'s are a problem. That is, the newest WU\'s are calculating the 14th dimension. And, it seems every time a new dimension is introduced, problems, like the ones we are having now, arise. Like a lot of others, I have set SZTAKI to NNW and will wait until we hear something more definite - but, I am not holding my breath. ;-)

              This project is not dead, I sent PM to Ádám, and he replied fast.
              I think that most credit issues are now fixed.

                A project with no replies in the forum is dead.
                I don\'t have an answer for the unwanted and unnecessary credits granted yesterday for no reason.

                  I have a successful WU for 1301 points and I\'m granted 0. work id - 2283910, Result id - 8506953. At worst this should be listed under pending until the other 2 results come in. Instead its listed under results with 0 points. under errors it says - Too many error results Too many total results. If these all happened before me why is this still going out to people. Two people still have this WU I\'m hoping that credit is pending. With the size of the Wu it\'s too big of an investment to wonder if credit is coming. Can anyone tell me if this is the norm and not to worry about it.

                    Due to the volume of errors for this task, it seems unlikely that you will be granted any credit automatically, even if the two remaining results validate correctly. Your only hope is for the project manager to run a script to manually grant credit. He might and he might not. This project is a bit like that.

                    Unfortunately, you have joined the project while it is going through one of its regular (and extended) disaster periods. I suggest you join the rest of us on No New Tasks for a month or two until the system is flushed of the current mess and tasks of a more manageable crunch time are issued.

                          I have had this happen with 3 wu\'s myself (shown below), maybe more but only 3 recent ones. I noticed the quorum is 3, however the replication is 4... If your quorum is three, you should only send out 3 workunits, then if one is not returned do a re-send. Another thing, with the last two workunits below, my PC was the 3rd to return a VALID result; however, one of the first three returned was a \"client error - aborted by user\". Why is this considered to be part of the quorum? Another thing, I just noticed that with result ID 8541388 my PC was the FIRST to return a valid result.

                          These bugs all need to be reviewed and updated in the validator to make sure that your volunteers are not discouraged against running your project.

                                  I\'ve looked at a lot (but not all) of the \"zeroes\" posted here and I may have found a common trait. That is, all the ones I looked at were done by computers with 4 CPU\'s.

                                      A bunch of 0s, these are all from yesterday I believe.

                                      Most of the zeros are from a machine with 8 cores (Xeon Quad)

                                      http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/show_host_detail.php?hostid=303106 (it is 64 bit linux running 32 bit boinc)

                                      Another machine with some is
                                      http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/show_host_detail.php?hostid=303637 (32 bit linux, 4 cores Q6600)

                                      Other machines getting zeros are Pentium 4 dual processor machines (32 bit linux)

                                      But I am pretty sure every machine I have attached has atleast one, I just got tired of clicking through the results.

                                        55 hours and no credit when my PC did it faster than all three of the other PC\'s that did get credit.... Once my cache is up I am not coming back to this project until the validation/quorum issue is fixed.

                                          Another success with 0 credit:

                                          Ádám, is a fix for these validation problems being worked on?

                                            My guess is who knows with the validation since there has been absolutely no response here in the forums. I even sent him a direct PM referencing this thread...

                                            oh and gotta love the quorum of 3 on this workunit... My result wasn\'t even the last one sent in. I would really like to know how this zero credit is being determined!!

                                            Same with this one, although I posted the result above.

                                                  Adam has posted a new message on the Questions regarding the new physical application thread. The way I read it, this \"validator problem\" won\'t be looked at until after the new UC Explorer application is released (hopefully, later this month).

                                                  In the meantime, I think we should try to gather and compile as much information about this problem as we can, so when Adam is ready, he can be pointed in the right direction. I encourage everyone to read the old Validation Problems - Windows vs. Linux thread (from about a year ago). There are similarities to the current problem. I have suggested (here and here) that issue might be related to multi-core computers. But the example Otter cited here tends to debunk that theory. Nevertheless, I believe there is some common factor out there ready be to be discovered. It\'s just a question of doing the work.

                                                  Unfortunately, many of the original \"zero\" results reported here have been completed, purged from the database and are no longer available. Therefore, in the future, please post both the Computer ID of your \"zeroes\" and those of your \"wingmen\" (who got credit). That way, the information won\'t be lost.

                                                  EDIT: To provide an example, I have replied to Otter\'s message with the information I am suggesting. I also noted that Otter\'s zero was restarted several times; and, therefore, may have failed to validate due to the old checkpointing problem.

                                                          This one was worth 261 credits for the lucky random crunchers that got credit for their work. Two of the four of us crunched for long hours on this one and got no credit. Why no explanation from the powers that be?

                                                          Edit: and here\'s another one. 2 of the 4 got credit, this time only 28 points:

                                                            Another uninterrupted zero result: http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/result.php?resultid=8678252 (done on hostid=295826). It was the 4th result returned. That is, the other 3 formed the quorum and all 3 of them were given credit. The 3 successes were on: hostid=300535; hostid=37060; and, hostid=16111.

                                                            BTW: It definitely appears that my earlier speculation about multi-core computers was wrong. The last several examples posted on this thread (including this one) disprove that idea.

                                                                                                    Here\'s another one with success but no credit:
