Number crunching :
Why is this work unit running a long time?
Posted 19 Oct 2018 by [RKN]DerDiplomatM
Hello every one,
I have problems with two nbody work units (MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation 1.72 (mt); 3 core-Cpus):
Both started to count the time remaining to calculate every second up.
For example: data 3 was already processed 7 hours and the time remaining was 42 days, 21 minutes and some seconds. But with each second of calculation minutes remaining going up. After restarting the computer this work unit started all over again starting with 0 hours, minutes processed.
data 2 was calculated 2 hours and 19 minutes, but with 1000 days and so on.
I halted both work units.
Is it possible, that I'm not getting any valid result with these ones?
Advice is appreciated.
Computer: Lenovo Laptop, intel core i3 3110M @ 2.40 Ghz, 2 cores, 4 threads, 8 Gbytes DD3 (CPU-Z data), with Win 10 installed on it.
