Not bad this wu37377
And an other candidate for a maximum CPU time exceeded, i\'m afraid


CPU time (sec) 523438.984375
stderr out <core_client_version>4.32</core_client_version>
<message>Maximum CPU time exceeded
</message>
<stderr_txt>

6 days, 1 hour ...

Not bad but I can top that with wu39494 ;-)
CPU time (sec) 907928.667307

And all that time for nothing!?

And mostly the first needed a shorter time and for this reason claimed less credit.
The deadline even is still too short.
The problem with 0 credit isn't resolved.

So this are at least 3 'complaints' and it's a great pity that there's no reaction over the last three days.

&gt; It seems the granting is now done as follows:
&gt; Wait, until at least 3 valid results ar reported, then grant the
&gt; credits of the WU claiming the middle amount of credits to all WUs.

It is not done this way. For many of the last WUs
you can see nothing has changed :-(

This thread (http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/forum_thread.php?id=35) with this comment:
&gt; Problem 2:
&gt; On the previous run (10 Dim) Sztaki was validating WUs 1 on 1 and
&gt; automatically granting Claimed Credit to valid WUs. That was great.
&gt; On this new run (11 Dim) WUs are validated in groups of 5, requiring 4 to
&gt; grant credit and granting credit to all based on the credit claimed by the
&gt; earliest valid WU returned. This is far from great.

made me think that one possibility to 'cheat' could be: wait until you can see the value of granted credit for that WU and then decide whether to crunch or abort that WU. Waste of time but possible.

So maybe this is another reason for Adam to change the manner how credits are granted.

&gt; ... This is to stop cheaters and keep overclockers
&gt; from doing too much overclocking.

All my computers running the speed they are designed for.
So one possibility left?
For me I'm sure not to cheat. Can you tell me how to do that? ;-)

There MUST be another explanation.

IMHO you should get credits for your result. The words are the same as in the row of one who gets credits:
Vége Sikeres Befejeződött 27,054.63 50.86 25.70
Vége Sikeres Befejeződött 14,537.78 16.21 0.00

I have the same problem with these WUs:
http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=913
http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=846
http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=686
http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=561
http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=421

This should be corrected.
BTW: why the credits are not given the same way as i. e. SETI? The middle of the 'claimed credit' of the first three results is given to all. Quite easy :-)
7) Message boards : Észrevételek, tapasztalatok : 11 Dim. WU, Change Deadline? (Message 446)
Posted 4493 days ago by Nasicus
&gt; On a reference 1000 Mhz computer it takes a little bit more than an
&gt; hour to process 1 WU. So I don't really see the point why it would be
&gt; neccessary to extend the deadline above 1 day. BUT! If all of you
&gt; think that it would be useful, I am a guy who listens to the comments. :)

I have completely other times
P3 1000 - ~ 5:45 hours
P4 1800 - ~ 3:37
P4 2400 - ~ 2:18
AMD XP 2600+ - ~ 1:45


&gt; Alright everyone, deadline will be raised.

The deadline isn't yet changed. Is the deadline value part of the 'ready to send' WUs and a new value takes effect after creating new WUs?
Or is a new value valid for all WUs sent after the moment of changing the deadline value?
