Aw, I'm sorry.

Actually I had hoped to know more about the nature of this long task. Can anyone explain that?


The n-body are random lengths, only way to know is to let it run a bit and calculate it out to see the length. The ps tasks generally run at the pre-estimated time.

Probably one of the older systems on here anymore.

XP P4 2.66

Racked up 437,000 credits so far with it @12-16 hour days. In the next year I will possibly get a new pc.

My present WU has been running 14 hours and is only at 21%. This has not happened before. What's going on?


Are you crunching on cpu or gpu ? If cpu then it is ok. For gpu it depends on your card but usually under 30 minutes max


If you look her only computer doesn't have a gpu.

Occasionally an nbody wu is extra long. I've had up to 40 hours before, my current one is going to be ~25 hours.

One of my current tasks is going to be 25 hours. Usually they run 1-6 hours and go up to 40 hours for me.

[quote]Would it help to stop some of the computers putting out continual error's or hogging hundreds of wus that don't get computed? Taking care of those should help to bring the number down.


The continual errors certainly would, but AFAIK there's no way we can stop those machines from continually sending us junk. Is it possible to ban a host?
Yes. It was done on Nanohive years ago. Don't know how but he did ban some hosts or users. IP addy maybe?

Not quite sure what to do about the WU hogs either, seems like that's a BOINC bug. Actually maybe I'll complain on the BOINC lists about that. Have a link to any of those offenders I could forward on?


A few threads exist with both listes (errors and timeouts). Some may have been taken care of, I'm not going to check all of the hosts right now.

As far as I remember Travis saying that only the stock apps will get credit. I have not seen any opti apps posted since.

Did it reset (deleted MW info and redownload)? You are still showing using another app.
MilkyWay@Home Anonymous platform (CPU)

If you still have those tasks abort them and reset.

Using any other app than MW's stock app will all be invalid and not give you any credit.

milkyway version 18d-1

You are using and optimized app right? You should be using a stock app if you are, no others are supported now. Easiest was to switch back is to "reset" MW in Boinc.

Reset wipes the project files so when it contacts again it will download all current files. It also sets the projects debts to zero.

This has been brought up a lot over the years. This is part of why the Donations page was put up. Whatever money was raised before didn't seem to do much of any improvement. Many have offered in the past to buy/ donate parts, it hasn't happened. But, Maybe one day they will actually get a better setup.

I finished a WU last night and it went out. Didn't see any changes so THEN I read this post. Am I to understand that task is LOST?


Yes.

My Question is: Where is the finish of this Project?
The last visualization of completed work was a picture or two from last year. No modeling has been shown/ put together yet.

Is it possible to say how many flops needed to finish the MilkyWay@home project?

I don't think it could be very specific as different style searches take different amounts of steps.

Is there a end?

If it all gets run and sorted out eventually yes. When that will be, who knows.



No real update has been given in many months, so it is hard to be more specific.
