Hey Everyone,

You can expect to see invalid results and erros from any runs starting with ps_modfit* as they were a bad batch of runs. No more of these runs should be sent out as I have cancelled all workunits associated with these runs. I apologize for not catching this sooner.

The first 371 tasks "validated" have gone straight to error

Still about 500 left, which doubtless will do the same



Have I just been wasting my time and energy over the past few days?

Hi Corris,

While I do see many invalid or errored tasks on your list of recently validated workunits, I also see many successes. So no, I would not say you have been wasting your time and energy, but I understand if your opinion is different than mine. I apologize again for not catching the error earlier.

The server is quickly checking through the workunits in the validation queue, and I expect over the next couple hours the queue will be cleared and all will be back to normal.

I apologize again for these errors,

Jake

Jake

You are right.

Since the initial validations (371) went into error, the rest (805) went into inconclusive


Leaving at present pending (197) and valid (114)




I'm confused at the 363 in progress as the Q on my pcs is totally empty.

Therefore In Progress should be 0




Thoughts?

My guess is that the server has assigned you work to crunch but you have not downloaded it yet. As the server is catching up, it is creating many more workunits to validate those that have been stuck in the queue. Give it a little time and you should see those workunits get downloaded.

Jake

I am getting a lot of constraint bouncy files that are unsent to others for checking in my inconclusive file and I think everyone else is the same ? Could you look into this for us?

Thanks

This is expected for now. They will get validated as people crunch through the massive backlog of work.

I am getting about 40% of my tasks going "Validation Inconclusive". None of them are the dreaded "PS" series. The troubling part is that as on now very, VERY few of them are being re-sent to other crunchers. My backlog goes back to 22JUNE

Hi Jake,
Over the last 24 hours a shed load of WU have failed with computational error, yet a similar number complete ok, is there something up with the latest batch of WU?
Regards,
Cliff.

Same happening here. Thought something was up, but I'm having a bunch complete, too.

Same here, thought it was the GPU going south, now not so sure.

On my machine, the errors are coming on WU titled
'de_modfit_fast_18/20...ModfitConstraintsWithDisk...'

Note: 18 OR 20

'de_modfit_fast_Sim19...ModfitConstraintsWithFixedDisk...' appears to be running ok.

Hi,
Getting a load of errors (Number of parameters doesn't make sense) in jobs like this one:
de_modfit_fast_20_3s_146_bundle5_ModfitConstraintsWithDisk_Bouncy_4_1500622801_16857061_0

Have stopped getting tasks for now...
