In the last few days I am getting a lot of Validation Errors. In the past, I would get a few errors once in a while, which I could live with. However, the last few days the error rate has become unacceptable. This large number of errors is wasting a lot of computer power and time. Below is a listing of errors:

Oct. 9 5 errors
Oct. 8 8 errors
Oct. 7 3 errors
Oct. 6 1 error
Oct. 5-3 0 errors
Oct. 2 1 error

You can see the error rate has become unacceptable the last 3 days. Is this a problem with MilkyWay@home or is it an error on my computer? I am running a Dell computer with the latest Windows 10.

Can someone please help me! Thanks.

I don't see anything there that fixes the issue!

Hi Brent I share your concerns, I seem to be wasting 15,000 - 18,000 cpu seconds per day on invalid units, usually 3 or 4. I run with Core I7 and up to date W10. I guess at some point I might stop if it persists.

Have processed 33 work Units today. 5 were immediately invalid (15%) wasting a total of 20,000 + CPU seconds.. 6 are still pending validation.

Coupled with yesterdays invalid another 10,000 Cpu seconds.. 35,000 seconds over 2 days wasted.

Looking at the WU results every WU that exceeds its estimated time is very likely to be immediately invalid.

To much time wasted, wont be doing any more .

If the xml file for a task has
<number_WUs> 7 </number_WUs>
then it should be aborted, as it will result in a validate error. Apologies that I haven't been able to implement a server-side fix for this yet, I have been (& still am) busy with other projects and travel. If I get some spare time this week I will try to look into it.
