Looks like we've got a 'no new work' phase going on as of 10PM PST (12/11)

I can confirm that I can't get any work either


Looks like the assimilator needs a swift kick up the cpu!

When you increse the length of the wu please ensure that the check-point error that has been showing up is fixed. With the shorter wu's it is not a problem with longer wu's and particularly on a slower machine if an error occurs because of a fault in the check-pointing a cruncher loses the credits for an hours work it is annoying.

I thought the drought was over but I quit getting wu's again! Come on Travis I know it's the weekend but.... And BTW check the pendings, going up again.


Aww its Saturday morning - let the poor lad have his breakfast!

I've got a steady flow of nm_stripe and nm_test work so its just the Astronomy 1.22 work thats backed up.


Agreed after all the lad came in on Thanksgiving day to try and keep the project going. He needs to sleep and eat sometime even if computers don't.

As of about 09:00 UTC we seem to have the problem again i.e. no wu being downloaded and the validation queue growing.

Just completed a whole weekend crunching with no validation problems and Wus coming through on demand.

Well done for fixing the problems that have plagued us on previous weekends

Thanks

There is one good thing at least the project was not a project of the month for a team the boards would have been filled with complaints

credit should have been awarded for all the WUs that actually were sent back to the server. i waited for the validator/assimilator to clear all those out before i removed everything from the database -- so the only credit that should have been lost were for WUs that were completed but not yet reported to the server.[/quote]

Sorry Travis I had 32 pending and only 3 of those validated I stopped crunching anymore at about 00:30 UTC so all the ones I lost had been reported to the server before that time

Still all the ones I've done today are validating nicely

I have about a 500 WU's Pending on diferent PC's.
See this PC.
But when i click the work unit ID for details i'll get a 'can't find workunit' error.
Are they purged before the validating process started ?


They have cancelled all the wus without giving any credits

Post:
My quad core cancelled a few WU's, but now it isn't getting any new ones! Server status page mentions over 15,000 WU's available, so it's odd I ain't getting them. Running 64bit Linux btw. Any ideas?

Got one then nothing

All the work done yesterday cancelled with no credits what a farce

there were some bad WUs in the database -- i had to remove all gs_373282. right now the server says there are many available WUs to download, so let me know if you're getting these and they're working.

thanks!


All seems fine here. 3737's are running down and I'm filling up with 602's. Thanks for the info and the time spent getting it up again. It is appreciated.


you're getting 602s? that's a bit odd because that search should be over... but if you're getting them and they're working than that seems to be ok :) i'm a little worried because the number of unsent WUs seems to be holding steady around 15000.... and i'm not generating any new ones.

It appears that all the wus my computer managed to crunch Thank you Travis

Hehe let Travis Time, he need to fix this anyway if the Project want to be Relase :)
Many pepole are interested at the Project

I have given a lot of time and energy to this project a little communication in return is a small payment.

perhaps Travis could let us know when he could be available UTC so we could not waste our own time as well as our cpu time

I am having to download/upload via dial up at the moment I have crunched some wus and have not recieved any credits and I cannot remain connected for when your server decides to allow wus to be released

Please let me know when/if this project will provide a semi regular service

I got "one". :)


Me too, several actually but they dried up pretty quickly. :-(

Now they look like they may be back again.


I have processed about 50 since 6.30 this evening W Aust time (according to boincview) Only been distributed in twos and threes. Only 7 left on three computers. Seems to have dried up again .

Hmmm !!!


I got 7 in one batch:) but only one or two since then :(

I have a number of results in the pending queue which I uploaded today which do not appear to be validating According to the server status there are no wu awaiting validating.

The pending wu all belong to gs37382.... batch
