1) Message boards : SZTAKI Desktop Grid : Why no credit for this wu? (Message 7889)

I have had a zero, a correct credit and a double. All balances out I suppose. I wonder if the science results are as accurate as the credit? Oh dear. . .

I can\'t be bothered to post a link to it but I\'ve had a zero credit too.

Due to the volume of errors for this task, it seems unlikely that you will be granted any credit automatically, even if the two remaining results validate correctly. Your only hope is for the project manager to run a script to manually grant credit. He might and he might not. This project is a bit like that.

Unfortunately, you have joined the project while it is going through one of its regular (and extended) disaster periods. I suggest you join the rest of us on No New Tasks for a month or two until the system is flushed of the current mess and tasks of a more manageable crunch time are issued.

Not just you. Everyone got an extra 255 today.

5) Message boards : SZTAKI Desktop Grid : An Old Problem Returns ??? (Message 7608)
Posted 3222 days ago by 6dj72cn8
I am afraid I have bailed out of my current WU. It is a 20-liner at 0% after nearly three hours, which points to a fairly long run time. The problem is that I am the sixth quorum member to receive it. Two have already aborted, two have over 500 other tasks each in their queue and the fifth member only joined on Christmas Eve and must be wondering what the heck has hit them. In my judgement, the WU will hit six failures before it hits three successes. So, while I\'m confident I could return a valid result, there is no point in doing so.

Back to NNT for another couple of months for me.
6) Message boards : SZTAKI Desktop Grid : Cannot get app and WU under Mac OS X 10.5 on Macintel (Message 7248)

I think it might be that SZTAKI\'s server software needs updating for a proper fix, but in the meantime reverting the unintelligent Boinc Manager to version 5.10.45 is the workaround I am using.

iMac intel:
BOINC client version 5.10.45 for i686-apple-darwin = SZTAKI tasks (when available)
BOINC client version 6.2.14 for x86_64-apple-darwin = No tasks; platform not found

7) Message boards : SZTAKI Desktop Grid : Exaggerated to completion estimation (Message 7087)
Posted 3566 days ago by 6dj72cn8
I\'m new here, but not to BOINC. It really looks like the initial estimate for the time to complete is way off. My first task on a 3.4 GHz (HT) P4 was listed as about 14 hours to complete. It did it in less than 1 hour. Subsequent tasks reduced the estimated completion time in BOINC as expected.


New participants have got it easy! Those of us who have been here longer had a high RDCF due to previous long-running work units. When this new batch began I got an estimated time to completion of 750 hours. It actually took 4 minutes.

I am not disagreeing with the point you are making, just pointing out that things could be worse. :-)

The thing about SZTAKI work units is that they are highly variable in processing time.

It is envisaged a graphic posting of the work in progress?


Are you referring to a sort of screensaver rather than the performance graphs on the website?

Ádám said he hoped to find time to work on this during (Northern) summer last year but eighteen months later we are still waiting and hoping. I think there are higher priorities with a new project coming.

Link to Wishlist.

It is good that the Windows/Linux/Mac validator bug has been fixed. Any progress on the checkpointing bug Ádám?
10) Message boards : SZTAKI Desktop Grid : The Server Upgrade has a Small Problem (2) (Message 6487)
Posted 3738 days ago by 6dj72cn8
Nightbird, are we discussing the same thing? The line that appears at the bottom of each of Ádám\'s messages? I am confused. On the 25th you said you can see the line under IE. On the 26th you said you can\'t see it under IE 6 or 5.5 (or Firefox).

I see the line all the time, any browser, logged in or not.

As Tomcat has pointed out, the HTML is less than splendid so perhaps it is not a surprise the some browsers are struggling. Here is small sample of the lengthy report iCab produced.
