1) Message boards : SZTAKI Desktop Grid : WU 2515 sucess but 0.0 credit granted? Why? (Message 4668)
Posted 4045 days ago by WimTea
Because of the multitude of problems I left this project little over a month ago after returning one last, small WU.
Just checked this WU, it was one completed result short for a quorum. There were too many errored results -better: killed by user-, so no credits were granted. What I find worse is that the work already done is probably down the drain.

I\'ve decide I won\'t be crunching anymore WUs for at least 6 months now :-( .

Yippie!! I received my 1764 credits too! Thanks, Adam!
And it looks like I\'m not the only one who got lucky!


I am also a lucky one who received credits. :)
But it looks like the team credits are not updated. :(
Can this be confirmed from others? Thanks.

Sure looks like it.
I\'m with BOINCStats and the top 5 members together have more credit than the whole team...

I hope all the work behind the credit was put to some good use too.

To Nightbird: I made the screenshot shortly after Adam announced all old WUs would be purged. I just wanted to make sure it didn\'t get lost. You\'ll never know when something saved gets handy...

Btw.: my first 25 liner behaves OK so far. Still takes a lot of time, though, it\'ll pass the 24 hour mark for sure.

Beerknurd and others,

I\'ve finally come up with a script, that adds the missing credit to your accounts...if you were missing some credit, please check if you got your credits granted. Thanks


Hi Adam,

I\'m sure you helped a lot of crunchers to their well-deserved credits. Any reason I\'m not one of them :-( ? See post 4061...

Same here, still with my first WU... It\'s a 2-liner, reached 50% after a few hours (strangely enough jumped to it right after restarting BOINC), now at 14h and still at 50%... Will wait some more time, but this doesn\'t look good to me... Especially since IMO the project meant to cut the looooong WU\'s (1.000.000 secs plus) short; I would like very much to see them maximized to 30.000 secs or so on an average comp.

Maybe Adam could take a look at RCN. There Bernhard has succeeded in cutting the WU\'s in 2hr. max. pieces, sort of regardless of the comp running it. I know, RCN is a totally different science, so Bernhards solution is not guaranteed to be feasible for Sztaki, but maybe Adam could have a look?

On an other issue, I (also) still received no credits, 1764, as promised. I couldn\'t find them in Neither the total amount nor the sum of all my comps...

Hope the project fixes both of these issues soon or I\'m afraid I\'ll have to leave it. And that a lot of crunchers will not return here, which I find would be a shame as I find the science interesting :-( .


I\'ve killed this WU. At about 17 hrs. I found out it had restarted. I\'m giving this project ONE more chance with a 25 line WU.
Current status: 0% at .75 hrs.

For the credit compliants:
I\'ve run queries on the database like this:

UPDATE <table> SET total_credit = total_credit + claimed_credit WHERE claimed_credit > 0 AND granted_credit = 0;

For me this seems to be correct and I think you would understand if I haven\'t verified the data of more than 10k users by hand. Or should I?!?


No, you shouldn\'t. But still I don\'t get why did not receive the claimed 1764 credits. Can you explain that to me?

[edit] And that\'s both on the totals page (your account) and on the page for the comps (view computers)...

I agree, it\'s VERY satsifying to see new WUs ready for crunching. I D/L\'d some which are now in progress. Any indication how long they take on an average oldie (P4, 1.8GHz)?

Of the old (loooooong) WUs I didn\'t find the credits for result 83858, which took 800k sec and claimed a (whopping to me) 1764.00 credits... Any indication when this will be corrected?

I\'m not speaking for myself (I\'ll stick to Sztaki), but I think people will leave this project if the promise to award all claimed credits is not honored... Would be a shame to lose all those crunchers when there weren\'t that many left already...

I noticed some progress - all my results are now purged. Hope Adam doesn\'t forget the credits... And to produce some fresh, a-few-hours WU\'s to crunch, ofcourse...

Still no work and in the mean time it\'s getting awfully quiet \'round Sztaki...
Hope the project is up and running well and soon, so maybe people return to it...
