    Dear users,

    Yesterday I started a batch of 6336 workunits on openMalariaBeta with names like wuVC-MSAT3_*_*. We wanted to get results back soon, so I set the delay-bound to 5 hours. In theory this should be enough to run the work-units, but as has been pointed out, this causes BOINC to use high-priority scheduling, delaying other tasks present. I have now increased the delay-bound to 25 hours for the remaining 5000 or so tasks as a compromise between rapid turn-around and less aggressive scheduling.

    It should also be noted that a quarter of these tasks are failing due to a typo in the design of this experiment. I must say I'm sorry for rushing these off with so little testing; in any case I'll cancel and re-submit these broken scenarios very soon!

    Thanks for your understanding!

      Thanks hardy. I can confirm that the longer deadline has stopped BOINC from immediately running the tasks in high priority mode on my Q6600.
