1) Message boards : Number crunching : Deadline too short (Message 1006)
Posted 1654 days ago by zombie67 [MM]
All tasks go into immediate panic mode, because the deadline is only 24 hours in the future. That is not playing nicely with other projects. Please increase the deadline for tasks to at least 3 days. 1 week would be better.
2) Message boards : Number crunching : Problem with the validator (Message 960)

Yes.. There is a problem to mark all results as validated. I have already run it manually and granted the credits to the valid instances. I shall look into to see why this failed in the first place.. Thanks for your feedback!



Thanks!

Please let us know when the problem is fixed. I am suspending until then.

Admin: There is a problem with the validator (I think). Please look at this example (there are many more examples of problems to look at if needed):

http://casathome.ihep.ac.cn/workunit.php?wuid=9339588

max # of error/total/success tasks: 16, 22, 6

This WU has a total of 5 tasks., well under the 22 maximum specified. Why does the WU status say,:

errors: Too many total results


Task 20153282 should have validated, but was awarded not credits.

Please look into this. More examples of the same problem upon request.

Thanks for #1!

For #2, it's working now. So please disregard.

1) Impossible to send any one a private message. It just goes to a completely blank page. Please fix.

2) We can get only two tasks per computer at any time. This was fixed in the past. Bu the problem is back again.

Thanks!
6) Message boards : Number crunching : Can we increase the WU limit? (Message 219)
Posted 2561 days ago by zombie67 [MM]
Yes, something is broken. It used to be 2 tasks per core. But now it is 2 tasks per machine. Can it please be fixed again?
7) Message boards : Number crunching : Granted Credits (Message 143)
Posted 2625 days ago by zombie67 [MM]
The way that option should work is, the extra task is canceled only if it is not yet started. The surplus task should never be canceled if already started.

Right. There are two ways to abort tasks from the project server side:

1) Abort tasks regardless of status.

2) Abort tasks, only if they have not yet started crunching.


In general, use #2 unless it is absolutely necessary to use #1. For example, the project may decide that a batch of tasks are no longer helpful, so they want to cancel the batch. If it doesn't hurt anything, use #2. Sure, the project cannot use the results. But people have already invested time/work in the tasks that have already started. It doesn't hurt anything to just let them complete, and award credit to them for their time.
9) Message boards : Number crunching : Wingman stats (Message 139)

Truth. When looking at other people's machine info, there is nothing visible that is sensitive. When you look at your own machines, you see much more info than when you look at other's machines. Much more restricted data is displayed when looking at your own machine info. Try logging out, and then looking at your own machines, and you will see the difference. So there is no need to artificially restrict people looking at other people's machines.

SETI does this too. But only for the tasks that have not yet completed. What is it doing here?

Say what? Bok and BOINCstats are getting the exported stats.

Posted 2642 days ago by zombie67 [MM]
Oh no you don't. I quit that argument first. ;) My last comment was just clarification on a previous comment of mine, that was misinterpreted. All the rest I let go.

For the record, you had no need to feel defensive about anything. I was not making any accusation. As far as I knew at the time, only Willy had that policy. I know differently now. In any case, I don't agree with that policy. So it was actually a complement to those stat sites that didn't have the same policy. Not an incrimination.

Also, your are incorrect about BOINC Synergy publishing CAS@home's stats


I didn't say anything about BOINC Synergy. BS = BOINCstats in my earlier post.

Posted 2643 days ago by zombie67 [MM]
I asked only for BOINCstats permission, because that is the only stat site that requires it. All the rest add them at will.

In any case BS added it to the stats as well as BAM.

Is it safe to say that all BOINC Stat sites have the Ok to publish the stats now ?

Thanks


Yes, that is what he just said.

Over at BOINCstats, the admin there requires explicit permission from the project admin, in order to show the project stats there.

Can permission please be given in this thread?

Thanks!

The current version of BOINC is 6.10.58. Perhaps upgrading will fix it.

With all the errors, I hit the daily task limit. I won't be able to check it out until it resets in a couple more hours.

These new tasks seem to be validating okay. Thanks!
