Hi folks, I currently have a lot (2000+) of tasks with Status of: Completed, validation inconclusive.

Credit is "pending". Is it normal to have this many inconclusive results? What further validation takes place after this status? What determines if I will/ will not receive credit for these?

Thanks!

Yes it's normal especially as fast as you are going thru the workunits, most will be validated in time, you are just waiting on your wingman in each case. Each workunit here requires at least two different people to crunch it before they can be 'validated'. Sine you are waiting on a wingman yours are listed as 'inconclusive'.

'Pending' credit is different, those are units that don't require a wingman but the project validates them and that depends on when they do it and I guess how many total there are from all the different users.

Very interesting! Thanks. Makes sense that it would take another confirmation to validate the results. Next up I'm going to look for more info on what differentiates the n-body WU from the regular one.

N-body workunits use multiple cpu cores on one workunit, regular workunits use one cpu core per workunit.
