There seems to be a validation problem. The results of the Linux application doesn't seem to validate against Windows results and vv.

As long as the WUs of my wingmen are still in progress the status of my finished WUs is "pending". When the wingman's Windows result comes in the status changes to "validation inconclusive" and the WU is re-sent to yet another host. If the second Windows result comes in, they overrule me and my result is marked "invalid".

So far I wasn't able to get any credit.

I have finished 11 WUs and earned NO credit at all!
Looks like nobody here really cares ?

This is not very encouraging :-(

three results from linux hosts and no validation.

Oh and the CPU time is very low in case of windows.

Better: the CPU time is very low in comparison to windows results.

Is admin responding to any of our messages?? I have over 30 WUs that have errored out on two machines with a lot of crunch time on them. In examining the failed WUs I see a lot of computers (5-9 on many) also returned errors for the same WU!! I have suspended futher work from this project until we get some answers.

Jie Wu, you asleep, dead or just ignoring us?? Your WUs or software is corrupt and costing us valuable machine time!! How about some answers, please!! And some credits for our work.

same problem:
http://casathome.ihep.ac.cn/results.php?hostid=4114
http://casathome.ihep.ac.cn/results.php?hostid=4160

The result from linux won't be validated, it cost a lot of compute resource.

This is a bug of BOINC, I will report it to the developing team of BOINC. As for credits, I will compensate you as soon as possible!

Thanks Jie Wu. Thats is fair with me. I had no idea there was a problem with the CAS WUs until, as I routinely do, checked on my completed tasks. I then saw that a large number had ended in errors. ON my end, those WUs were sucessfully completed, ready to report, not as a 'computation error'. So the error was after they were uploaded. Had I known they were erroring out, I would have suspended CAS much earlier. I will watch to see how the 'failed' WUs are handled.

Hi,Sorceress, I will not change the WU state, just try to grant you credits for WU which is not righit handled! So you will see nothing for your WU state.

Please explain this. In the last 40 WUs I have been granted 34.2 credits for 105,676 secs computer time. I would appreciate some compensation for the time I spent on the bad WUs. I feel 400 credits added to my account would be fair. TIA

I have another WU failed after uplaod. Is is me or any others having this problem? WUs are failing on 2 different computers so the problem is with the WU or the server. I cant get Admin to fix the problem so Ive suspended CAS.

This workunit has been stuck in pending now for 36 hours. Had a message at the time of reporting about something like a gateway error. Can you validate?
