Meanwhile, the results of big workunits will be processed by hand and any claimed credit will be granted.


Any update on when this will happen? Will it apply to the WUs that failed with computation errors after many days crunching and reported incorrect CPU time?

Thanks,

Al.

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?

Why did you just grant everybody 255 credits?
What is this good for?


Was it everybody or just those that lost work last year?

I got the 255 credits which I assumed was for the 5-day work unit that I completed but was discarded. I\'d have expected either around 1000 or nothing.

Currently 5 days into another WU and I\'ve got a feeling that one is going to be discarded too. I hope I\'m wrong.

I processed 4 WU\'s and obtained a claimed credit of 1581,58 but no granted credit. The work units are no longer available.


My old WU ...

http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=2235786

... has also disappeared without trace. Another volunteer also completed it and we were waiting for the resends to happen. Unfortunatly that didn\'t happen.

Many days crunching, and then thrown away.

Thanks a bunch :(

Longer stop due to maintenance.

Yeah, and all my results are gone. I hope that\'s only temporary.


The descriptors of the workunits that are currently being processed have been lost during the maintenance. We kindly ask to abort any workunits that has been downloaded before the 12th of november. New workunits, with extended report deadline and shorter processing times will be available soon. We apoligize for any inconvinience caused. Users who are involved in the problem will be granted credit for their work

Any chance of the many workunits completed over a month ago getting resolved? The resends of these units never happened, leaving lots of work hung with 1 or 2 results awaiting a third result that could never happen.

It would be tragic to throw away so much CPU time just because an IT problem.

Have you sent them a private message? That might be a more efficient way to let them know.


My post was (mostly) tongue-in-cheek. It would be nice if the project admins stepped up and did something, but that\'s not going to happen, so begging seems the best approach :)

But, yup, I\'ll PM them. I have nothing to lose. Apart from my sanity.

First one of you guys to send a result (even though one month post-deadline) gets some credit!

This stinky old WU has been hanging around for ages, and just one more result will score credit for all concerned:

http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=2235786

This WU is still stuck on the initial IR, and no reps have been sent. So, come on guys, get this WU done and we all win!

Al.

p.s. Is there any admin on this site? Not seen any posts for ages now. Just askin\' like.

p.p.s. Sorry about the bad Hungarian characters in the subject line - My kbd doesn\'t do Hungarian :)

The latest wu\'s are running longer than indicated by the completion time, so are all going to be late.


This has been going on for ages. Didn\'t you read this thread:

http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/forum_thread.php?id=691

Suggest all further discussion is directed to that thread to avoid talking about the same stuff twice :)

This WU ...

http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=2235786

... has been completed by 2 of the original 4 replications, the other 2 have failed to reply on time (surprise, not).

So there should be 2 new WUs sent out, and indeed the WU status shows that they should be sent, but they are stuck in the \'unsent\' state.

Surely the replacements WUs should have been sent hours ago?

I currently have No New Work set


However, looking on the bright side, I did manage to get a WU finished on an old 2.4G P4!

382K seconds - Got to be an easy win for my wingmen with better hardware. Go wingnuts, go! ;)
