It looks like the star file was misspecified for the *22_3s_free_1/2 and *22_3s_edge_1/2 searches. I've made a new fixed star file for *22_3s_free_3 and *22_3s_edge_3 searches, and shut down the old ones. Let me know how these are working.

I've run through only about 30 of these these, but, so far, so good. Previously, my error rate had been about 10%.

A Follow-up...

After two hours of the version '3' , I have seen *zero* errors on them.

Still having a few errors on the version '1' and '2' WUs as those batches run their course.

It looks like the problem is solved.

Thx.

...so far, so good.

Or, maybe not so much... This result, 319700259, shows a failure similar to the earlier runs. :-(

Looks like the job completed successfully but for some reason the client marked it as a failure (it does have the output for the likelihood at the end). I wonder if this is due to the fact that one of the stream only likelihoods ended up being NAN.

I hope the errors like this are at least less frequent...

For edge_1 and edge_3 and free_1 and free_3 still many errors (while computing) and even more validate error for same, however wingman seems to run them fine and get validated.
I have the newest driver 1.4.1741 with HD5870 and BOINC 7.0.28 on Win7 x64.

Could it be a graphics driver problem?
I run Albert@home once a while as well and they did okay since yesterday as there are many validate errors too with ati as I saw with wingman. Nvidia seems to be okay.

And I have seen a number of errors on the version '3' WUs overnight as well.

These seem to have an #IND in the result as:

<stream_only_likelihood> -3.638176510600306 -10.877692835483177 -1.#IND00000000000 </stream_only_likelihood>

A rough calculation with my host's results shows an error rate of about 2%-3% over the last 4 hours, or so. So, they do seem to be less frequent (for me).

Yes, errors are less frequent compared 22_3s_free_1 and 22_3s_edge_1 searches, today I had just 3 bad *free_3* WUs. So that's way better than those 11 edge/free_1 from yesterday.

What I have noticed is we have a lot of WUs which need 3 results before they be validated. Here some examples: 253847186, 253944881, 254009156, 253771061, 253995223, 253888155. That's just from 1 page of my results, which still contains many "completed, validation inconclusive", some of which will very probably join this club.

I've upped the quorums for some workunits a little bit because I was noticing we were getting some weird results validated. So there's no problem there, just a little bit extra validation on our end.
