Message 3546 - Posted: 28 May 2008, 12:43:55 UTC

I noticed for a few days that my Windows machine seemed to hang up on WU's, after the 19th I have to kill a few, and I can't get a steady stream of results from it.

And now I've noticed my mac has been working on a new WU for 48+ minutes. Looks like I've had a few WU's finish in 3900 seconds as opposed to 400 seconds, which I'm fine with if they return valid results. The only thing that's a little irksome is the fact that the credit dishout is the same. 4.07 for a 400 second WU vs 4.07 for a 3900 second WU...

Message 3547 - Posted: 28 May 2008, 13:30:01 UTC - in response to Message 3546.  

Just i killed one on Ubuntu Hardy: it was running a couple of hours and no progress. All others on my other machines hasn´t running yet, so I killed them, before they waste CPU

And at the moment: "no new work" accepted from Milky, sorry !!

This look like a different problem as the new WUs have only been available for the past day and when they do run they seem to be fractionallly faster - approx 13 min cpu time

My windows machine errors out in a matter of seconds with the new WUs

This is understandable due to the NaNs. We are pulling all those erroring WUs from the database as we speak. Sorry about the inconvenience.

I've got two 2h-ones yesterday, and one 4h-one just now. I've killed them, have the project set to NNW and am just waiting to report them back before resetting the project. Or is there no need to report them?

we might have found the problem. we had the wrong script set up to dump the database every few days -- so while i took the server down this morning to get rid of the ones from the new search, the database was too slow to do anything.

i'm running a full purge (which is gonna take quite awhile), but after that i'll get the remaining gs_3737... WUs out of the system. i've already stopped the search so there wont be any new ones generated. hopefully they'll get out of the systems quickly.

Thanks for the update! Looking forward to getting on with the new WU's once it sorts out :)

I just got three of the 3737 wu's, I thought that they were all flushed from the system ????

EDIT: All my PC's are getting them now. I have set to "No new work" again till it is sorted out.

NO, they are mixed together ...

Windows systems seem to error on these bad Tasks immediately ...

My OS-X computers seem to run them for an hour and they complete and validate ... oddly enough ...

They are slowly getting rid of the bad W/U's with less and less coming through, I seem to be having a minor problem with validation (as in it ain't happening) getting quite a list of pending, but this may be due to them trying to weed out the bad w/u's???

I believe when we took them out of the database, the bad workunits when and if they finish can't validate because BOINC doesn't know what they are. It thinks you're giving it a workunit that doesn't exist.

You haven't got them out yet, I've been getting them as fast as I can abort them, I Abort 4 & get 4 back again, set to NNW for now again, too much work having to go thru all that just to get a few good ones ... 0_o

had the same for the last 30-40 min, but the last few updates haven't had any. They seem to be coming in waves, about an hour before I will have to stop monitoring my rigs, not sure im going to let MW run unattended, if I don't get anymore in the next hour I may risk it :)
I'm sure I will regret this decision :)

Got a task from this WU.
name: gs_3737082_1211956623_998318_3
WU name: gs_3737082_1211956623_998318
app version num: 122
checkpoint CPU time: 0.000000
current CPU time: 1258.242634
fraction done: 0.000000

According to the posts above it's funny that
the reverse of the fraction-done-value gives ...
NaN :-)

EDIT: when I'd reported my aborted task,
the next one was created immediately afterwards.

This may be overcome, as seen on SAH beta, by setting max#oftotaltasks to zero in the concerned WU's.

EDIT2: Anonymous got it onto it's host.

Since Windows WUs error out quickly, rather than taking many hours to get nowhere as they do on Linux, I've enabled Work Fetch on 2 of my boxes to help clear them out. Apart from lost credit, I'm hoping there won't be any problems.

You see, I don't only crunch for credits...
