Well I just wasted 232905 seconds on this WU only to get 0.0 credits. This time I\'m really leaving here. Will check from time to time, to see if things are any better.
See ya\'!

Well folks, I\'m sad to say this but this show has to come to an end. If you\'re not willing to understand that BOINC is not a one man show, I\'m sorry but then you\'ll have to crunch your shit yourself.

I\'ve all machines running in EDF mode now and there are fifteen other projects waiting for their chance. So I try to finish the downloaded WUs and that\'s it for the next time, until I recognise a serious change here.

If it\'s not possible to change the application or to split the WUs, there will be no other chance than increasing deadlines. I\'ve some WUs here which report completion times over 360 hours, much more than CPDN and its deadline is nearly a year.


I allready took most of my machines off this project (and am very sad because it was one of my favorite projects) but this long run times and result incompatibilty (edit: with other non-M$ platforms) are just wasting CPU cycles that could be used for other projects. On one machine I left attached to SZDG a WU is crunching that has over 20h of CPU time and only 0.400% done. If that doesn\'t change soon I\'m also ditching that WU and dettaching that computer until things really change for the better.

Speaking of CPU time, I had to abort this WU, because it was stuck at 2% after four days of computation and in this period it didn\'t process even one line, meanwhile some results from other projects passed the deadline. Oh, well, that\'s life of a cruncher...

...
Error -131 is the file too big error.
I think that would be correct to grant credits for the computed but failed to upload WUs, am I?


That would be great and greatly appreciated.

Still Getting this:

03/02/2006 02:03:50|SZTAKI Desktop Grid|Message from server: No work sent
03/02/2006 02:03:50|SZTAKI Desktop Grid|Message from server: (reached daily quota of 500 results)

when I have received only a single workunit in the last 24 hour. This has been going on since the upgrade to Boinc 5.


That made me think about it. At home I have some machines, that still run BOINC 4.72 and they get much more work than this laptop I\'m writing this post on, that has 5.2.13 installed. Could they be in any way connected (daily quota problem and BOINC version)?

And thank you for the granted credits!

Hi all!

I have also been struck with 0 credited valid result today along with another poor cruncher and it was different OS(es) issue. Adam, may I suggest you turn on the homgeneous redundancy to avoid further "unjust/unintentional" result invalidation?

[edit] I see you allready identified the culprit... good job! [/edit]
