Sorry but I'm giving up with this project until somebody sorts out the frequent issues as no one seems to be bothered at this time. Great pity.

Has any one else noticed a high number of invalid errors with de_modfit_85_bundle4_4s_south4s_1_ work units?

Sorry! but I'm disappointed with the project admins ignoring this issue so I'll run down the last few work units I've got left and will leave MW for now.

Please see https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/workunit.php?wuid=1713880117 and https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/workunit.php?wuid=1713879958. Can someone figure out why these old work units whose results were turned in on January 24, 2019 are not being validated yet?



It will clear on 5 Feb 2019, 1:01:33 UTC which is the Report deadline.

I see this has been happening for over 9 years. Can't anyone figure out and fix the root cause?
It happened again this morning.


I always assumed it was some process running, like a backup, cleanup, whatever that needed to close the database. But you are right every morning about the same time it goes off line.


But three hours a day...every day! It's long overdue for some explanation if not a resolution.

Hi Mikey, what I've noticed is that some of the recent work units state initial replication = 1 ,where as they were usually = 2. Just a thought.

What's credit n/sec run time & n/sec CPU time like by comparison?
Just curious...

Maybe! I'm just set to MH@Home, no N-Body Simulation, no Separation
Just no work! It's been fine for years until now.

Hi Travis,

I've had no CPU work now for about 36 hours.
Doing other stuff though till it gets sorted.
Good luck.

Sorry chaps but I've just run out of work
units on three machines all CPU.
Something's wrong somewhere.
Gone to Prime Grid whilst it's fixed.

Sorry, maybe you have misunderstood my statement
"all the tasks failures here were processed only by CPU".
was referring to my 4 machines at this location,therefore
it is not wrong as I do not use my GPU's to process for Milkyway.

I have noticed that there are so many errors in my output, that I have started to question this project. For every day that goes by my willingness to waste electricity lessens.

I hope you solve your problems soon. Please consider to introduce a way for you to kill bad tasks, so that they do not need to be processed needlessly. Other projects kill unneeded tasks remotely. In these circumstances it also seems unnecessary to have a bad task fail 4 times before removing it, but that is your call.

Even though electricity will still be needlessly wasted, it may be argued that the project is responsible for the tasks failing, and the donors should not have to be punished for that, meaning that credits should be retroactively be awarded even for errored tasks.



Agreed! Also, all the tasks failures here were processed only by CPU, so all the chat about different drivers for GPU's is not addressing the problem
