    Here we go again.

    http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=2284244

    A couple of points.

    First, and most obviously, the WU ended with a compute error.

    Secondly, it ran for more than the CPU time reported - It actually ran for over 185 hours rather than the 85 hours reported.

    Thirdly, there is a quorum of 3, no work has completed successfully, but only 2 \'live\' replications are left alive, and one rep has been flagged as \"Didn\'t need\". So basically this WU is doomed to failure.

    I really, really want to crunch for this project, but these endless (and ultimately discared) WUs seem to be a waste of precious CPU time.

    Any chance that the project could be reviewed and made to work properly? Please?

    Al.

      Probably not.

      I can\'t even get NEW WU\'s to my PC\'s, so I am setting this to NNW and concentrating on projects that seem to care about us VOLUNTEERS.

          waste of time - reloaded

          Some days ago - round about 3 or 4 - Sztaki downloaded round about 35 Workunits with estimated calculating time of 26 minutes.
          4 Days later are 6 units completed with average calculating time of over 24 hours (not wondering - four cores).
          My answer: Cancelation of 20 Workunits and set Sztaki to get no new workunits and eventually cancellation of the whole project. I see no matter why other project suffer when Sztaki goes to High Priority because the calculation time goes to unlimited.
