If the deadline is reached and the server re-issues them, will it also cancel the ones left in hosts or will we have to abort them on our end?

The servers will continue to accept tasks that have passed their deadlines until the work-unit reaches quorum and the validator accepts the results. So there�s often a good chance for late tasks to receive credit, especially when a large proportion of crunchers are having trouble meeting the deadlines. Before aborting a task in which my host had invested any time, I�d look up the WU to evaluate the likelihood that at least three of my quorum partners will return results before I can.



Hi Odysseus,

I had one host where the last WU took almost 200 hours and others were between 100 and 200. But when the new WUs came in the estimated time to complete was 3 hours and all 7 are a week late according to time to complete. I\'ve been manually running WUs so as to not make other Projects WUS be past deadline.

My questiong is can something be done to force the time to finish to 200-300 hours when received from server? FreeHAL@Home\'s WUs are coming in at 6000+ hours to complete, but they really don\'t take that long. :-) If this were done, most WUs wouldn\'t interfer with the other project\'s WUs and there would be a lot more happy crunchers out there. :D

All my PC\'s are set to NNW due to the inaccuracy of the initial downloads time of proccessing display. Until I know that a Wu will download stating that it will take 137 hrs, I will not open up to this project for quite a while.

Any of your hosts that completed a long task should now have a very high DCF; with some ‘experience’ BOINC can usually adjust for server-side underestimations of running times. And if they spent a significant amount of time at “high priority”, deferring tasks from other projects, chances are they won’t ask for any SDG work for quite some time anyway.


I had one WU that took 232 Hours. I think that is the highest one. I have a bunch left so I think it\'ll be a while before any more come in. Especially since they are not resending any back out. I got over 200 of those, bad boy WUs, and the least was about 5+ hours, so there are some good one out there. I had to abort some in my hosts that have 10 day supply of WUs for all projects.

I could see not sending them back out for no reply but not for the thousands aborted by user.

Mine are asking for more now that the DCF is in line with the monsters. I\'m just getting 0 tasks. I think, it\'s time to let the WUs be sent out again. I thought the WUs were going to be fixed so not too many would be sent out, not no WUs sent out at all?

Hi Everyone,

due to the characteristics of the application it is hard to predict the running times of the workunits. Some will finish quick, some will take some time. However, the workunits - no matter how long they take to finish - are useful for the project and they are not defective. Please let your computer finish as much as it can, before the deadlines. Those which remain unprocessed after the reach of the deadline will be taken care by the server and will be sent out once more with a new deadline.

However, it is a problem that too many workunits gets sent out. I\'m working on a solution for this.

Hi Adam,

I have ~ 200 WUs on 16 Hosts. Since there is no way they will finish before the deadline, wouldn\'t it be better to extend the deadline rather that re-issue them. They are runnng over 100 hours which it will still take that long if re-issued.

If the deadline is reached and the server re-issues them, will it also cancel the ones left in hosts or will we have to abort them on our end?

Thanks

Bill

Yes the team was created in the begining. The credits for user and team were the same for months until I posted when problem happened. Anyway it has been fixed now so we all are happy crunchers. Even if our team went down 10 places :) because of the fix.

Happy Crunching,

Bill

I don\'t think there is anything to fix. The team appears to have gained about the same number of credits as you have since your original post. The team does not get any credit you had when you created it, only credit earned after you join/create it.


That was working ok from my posts but before the team founder, which never changed had meor than the team, which dowsn\'t have anything to do with carring credits over.
