    What about all the tasks in progress, and those waiting for validation? Will the project stay on line long enough to let those complete?

      The server is scheduled to be stopped in every moment. I don't know the exact time because our infrastructure administrator does it, but there might not be enough time to finish every tasks.

        I am not clear. I see that new tasks are still being generated, issued to clients, and validated. Can someone please help me understand?

        Is the whole SZTAKI BOINC site shutting down? Or just one of the sub-projects? I really hope the latter.

        If the whole site is shutting down, when will that be?

        Finally, if shutting down the whole thing, please do not just pull the plug. Do it methodically.

        1st: Stop new task generation.

        2nd: Wait for all tasks to be returned, validated, and credit issued.

        3rd: If the project cannot wait that long, then

        3a: issue a server command to abort all tasks that have not yet started processing.
        3b: Wait for all the tasks to be returned
        3c: Issue credits for all the pending tasks that will never validate because of the cancelations.

        4th: Export stats several times, over several days. Stat sites need to be able to archive the data.

          Don't worry, the SZTAKI Desktop Grid won't shut down. Only a research project (named SZDGR not the whole SZDG) ends which was not even public but we have had some invited donors to help. This is why I let them know that it will come to an end soon.

                I'm really sorry if you misunderstood. It is a bit confusing, I have to admit.
