1) Message boards : Number crunching : Longer Tasks????? (Message 34176)

The new WU's are roughly 4 times as long to crunch and give you 4x the old fixed credit per WU. Seems reasonable as a way to keep traffic off the server.

This is with CPU crunching, I don't have GPU's that are worthy... :(

Thanks Travis - 3 days is perfect to allow unattended weekend crunching for modem users like myself. As I originally stated though, if the science needs the shorter deadline then that's what counts and I'll move to another project for the weekend on my office cluster.

how about 2.5 days? that should allow WUs that started sometime on friday to be finished up sometime monday morning and reported?


Friday afternoon to Monday morning is about 2.75 days, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!!! LOL

Don't think 2.5 days will quite cut it, remember with dial up it may take an hour on the u/l and d/l with 6 hosts and many wu's.

Thanks for the reply, hope 2.75 can be made.

It's obvious that the admin's aren't aware of something called dial up internet connections and a 3 day weekend. This new 2 day deadline just killed my active participation with 6 hosts at work as I am gone 2.75 days over the weekend and can't dial up until Monday morn's.

Oh well, if the science dictates the shorter deadlines, then I'll accept it and choose another favorite project to crunch.

Three of my hosts running W2K just picked up the 1.22 app and it is working fine. They were crashing on 1.21 immediately and 2 of 3 have just completed their first 1.22 wu and returned it w/o a prob. Good work, so far, so good!

[edit]The procedure entry point LogonUserExA could not be located in the dynamic link library ADVAPI32.dll [/edit]


I have 3 nearly identical hosts (P4 3.0Ghz Northwood's). Two are running XP (one Home and one Pro) and 1.21 seems to be working very well on these two. The other host is running W2K and I am seeing the same immediate app crash as the above user. I tried detaching and reattaching but this didn't help. That W2K host was working okay at app 1.19 as far as I know.
