This project is wasting my CPU time, AGAIN!!!
Why are you sending out four WUs when you need only three?
Why don\'t you wait with the fourth WU until one of the others errors out or exceeds the deadline?
Why are you using such an old server version (scheduler reports 5.0.6) that is not able to abort unneeded WUs itself?

Here are some examples of wasted CPU cycles:

wuid=2275575 0 credits because quorum fulfilled, 54,053.88 or over 15 hours of wasted time and energy
wuid=2275204 (detached) this one will get no credits when finished and it is not needed because the quorum is 3 and it will be the fourth , so why wasting time with it?

I detached all machines from Sztaki because I\'m not willing to waste more time and electricity anymore!

You guys from Sztaki are kickin\' your volunteers asses over and over again! So if you don\'t want to show a little more respect to your volunteers, please consider crunching your WUs yourself!

Problem Status= solved

2) Message boards : SZTAKI Desktop Grid : Credits granted or not??? (Message 5878)

Similar question here. On my results page many results are marked pending, but when you look at each result details, example here, you will see that credit is already granted.

So what is true now, pending or granted???

And hey, as I found this particular result (Resultid=296380), my next question is, why are you guys granting only 15 credits when 1619 are claimed? 15 credits for 95 hours of crunching is just a bad joke.

Is it really my fault that the admins of this project are slightly overburdened?

Have an invalid W2.04 WU here with Maximum CPU time exceeded.

BTW do I still have to report invalid results or is there a script running that grants some credits for invalid results?

I\'m not crunching for credits only, but 499795 seconds of CPU time for nothing is a little bit frustrating, isn\'t it?

Nice to see that mothing has changed here. OK, give it another try next year ;-(((

Resultid=31706

Resultid=31626

Really cool WUs here, crunched for nearly 240 hours and in the end, invalid:

Resultid=77126
Resultid=79694

I really know better ways to waste my time ;-(((


Next couple of WUs which I\'ve wasted lots of electrons for:

Resultid=84493
Resultid=83413
Resultid=376
Resultid=382

Including the WUs posted before, 2.689.202 seconds or 747 hours which could have been spent more useful. So let\'s talk about credits!


Hoorray, the story never ends:

Resultid=77225

Next WU which Maximum CPU time exceeded.
Time transformed power to heat now: 3.324.210 sec. or 5 weeks, 3 days, 11 hours, 23 minutes and 30 seconds.
And still no credit in sight!

To be continued...


...just not to make empty promises, the sequel continues:

OK, let\'s have a nice crap inventory:
CPU-Time=196,169 sec.
CPU-Time= 6,901 sec.
CPU-Time=635,008 sec.
CPU-Time=792,294 sec.
CPU-Time=800,001 sec.
CPU-Time=498,972 sec.
CPU-Time=394,865 sec.
CPU-Time=857,162 sec.
CPU-Time=552,675 sec.
CPU-Time=853,174 sec.
CPU-Time=495,527 sec.
CPU-Time=975,267 sec.
CPU-Time=266,202 sec.
CPU-Time=221,692 sec.

Time heating up the summer breeze: 7,545,909 seconds or 12 weeks, 3 days, 8 hours, 5 minutes, 9 seconds.
Claimed credits so far: 17,557!!!

Wow, this is more than I\'ve crunched before on this project. And all for nonsense, or better say NON SENSE!!!

And hey, there\'s still one last WU crunching! Let\'s see what new errors we\'ll find there!

Found a little tweak to prevent Max_CPU_time_exceeded errors for unexpectedly long running WUs like some Sztake ones:
1- Stop BOINC (service or regular background process)
2- Go to BOINC main dir
3- Edit client_state.xml with a plain text editor like notepad
4- Locate rsc_fpops_bound. It\'s 3 lines below any Sztaki WU name.
5- Shift the decimal point one place to the right (increase the value by a factor 10). Be sure you get this right!
6- Save and exit client_state.xml
7- Restart BOINC

You\'ll have to repeat steps 4 and 5 for every Sztaki WU.

Beware of the possibility that a WU becomes caught in a loop, as BOINC will then spend a LOT of extra CPU cycles on it before aborting it.


Good hint, tried it with the remaining WUs.

Is there something to do when a WU is caught in a loop? Got some WUs over 200 hours and still under 10%!

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.
