I'm relatively new to BOINC in general and have only been computing for about a month. With regards to MilkyWay, I've completed 1505 tasks. Of that, only ~92% of those tasks have validated. The remaining 8% are distributed between error (~4%) and inconclusive (~4%). I only have a single task that came up as invalid.

Is this an indication that there is something wrong on my end that is resulting in the non-validation of tasks?

I have work split between CPU and GPU (NVIDIA, OpenCL 1.2).

Hey Qai,

No worries about those numbers. The errors are usually my fault assuming you have >90% validation rate. Sometimes the runs I put up use bad parameter files and there will be a few errors before I can take them down. The 4% inconclusive just means the server is waiting to have your results validated.

Thanks for your support and happy crunching.
