Are these only test units just to verify the validator? I've had 2 issues with them - Completed, validation inconclusive and when the consensus does come in, I get - Completed, can't validate due to the settings of - max # of error/total/success tasks 1, 6, 1 errors Too many success results

IMO, the logic behind the "Too many error results, Too many total results" circuitbreaker and/or Milkway's "3, 6, 1" threshholding of it, is flawed. That is, once the "circuitbreaker" is triggered, any (as yet unreturned), "In progess" results appear to be excluded from consideration, despite the fact that they could be "valid". That doesn't make sense - especially on a project where only one valid result is required.

At least, that seems to be the case with ps_13_3s_const_v2_5688232_1269636198 and Task 95459389 (mine) which lists its "Validate state" as: "Workunit error - check skipped".

EDIT: Sorry - I didn't see the other thread until after I posted here.

Just checked my results. I have over 1000+ which have not validated.

Seems like about a 20% failure rate over the completed ones.
Also got heaps as inconclusive, so things might change as we go.

Travis is on to it, so things will work out in the end.

Regards

Message 38101 - Posted: 5 Apr 2010, 16:23:04 UTC - in response to Message 38082.  

I suggest that "DB purging" be suspended until this "Too many errors . . ." problem is fixed. Else, a lot of work will be lost. The WU I reported (below) is already gone.
