Hope I can squize some time for it soon.


I realize you've been busy with the V5 upgrade and translation, but these still have not been fixed. Plus it's been over a week since we've had any information at all from the project, and after a fairly short work unit outage a few days ago, we've now been without work for almost two days... I'm getting the impression this project is about to go under?

What is the deadline? What is the estimated "to completion" figure? What is your computer's duration correction factor? What resource share do you give SZTAKI? What are the figures for "time running" and "time work allowed" that it's showing? Did it go into EDF mode? What exactly was the message? Did your benchmarks significantly change in the last day or so? BOINC version change? Which version are you running?

One or more of the above questions will point to an answer - but if from experience you believe these results WILL be finished in time, then the worst case is probably that BOINC will go into EDF unnecessarily for a little while, giving SZTAKI extra resources, which will then be made up by the other projects later.

Not yet - see the front page.

Yes, I think SZTAKI is the only one that still hasn't upgraded... I'm trying to crunch as many WUs on my Windows box as I can before installing 5.2.2, probably tomorrow - the Mac version of 5.2.4 is still not quite stable, so I'll be able to continue on the Macs for a bit longer.

I'll still have SZTAKI running on my Mac, until the Mac version of 5.2.2 is released (still has a bug, still running 4.72 at the moment) - but yes, my Windows box is about to be upgraded and SZTAKI removed.

They had all of September and 2/3 of October to upgrade and didn't...

BOINC V5.2.1 has been released; there MAY be a bug in the Windows version, so the default download is still 4.45, but this will probably change tomorrow to either 5.2.1 or 5.2.2.

Adam, I assume you're not going to fix these? Or are you still going to act on them soon, as you said back in August?

I _think_ it's boinc_4.72_windows_intelx86.exe - I got it when it was on the beta page, that page has moved on to 5.x version.

I looked at that WU - the first three results came in, it dropped the highest and lowest and took the middle. Then the fourth result came in, and got the credit awarded as from the first three. This is the "normal" method, as used everywhere... so I'm not sure what your question is? Had the validator not run before the fourth result was back, the average of 2.79 and 3.79 would have been given, so that WU would have gotten 3.29 instead of the 2.79 it got; however, the validator is able to keep up, so the first three normally are used.

If you are worried that you will always be "last" of the four, because of a slower computer, that really won't matter much. You are going to be requesting more credit than the others, perhaps, so your value would be dropped anyway, even if you were first back. As long as you can make the deadline, everything is fine. If the estimated times are off, and you start getting close to deadlines fairly often, then you should look at getting BOINC Manager 4.72 instead of 4.45 - the newer versions do a better job of estimating the time a result is going to take. (Can't recommend the beta 5.x yet as not all projects support it.)

Yes, SZTAKI uses the normal BOINC methods. Quorum is 3, same as SETI. Without a work unit number to look at, you do not provide enough information to be able to see what happened in the case you are asking about.
