1) Message boards : Number crunching : Long Run Times (Message 19349)

Well, I finally had one of the big ones finish (~170 hours) :-)


But got no credit for it. :-( OK, I know the credit's just a bit of fun but it does leave me wondering whether I've been running my computer for a week and the result is just binned...

Mine too. Still giving an error of maximum runtime exceeded.

Continue or not that is the question?

And did you? I ask because two more 2953 jobs have landed with me. Mind you, these seem to be going significantly faster than the one that timed out last time.

Edit: Just read rest of thread...looks like it's worth leaving it run for now.

and, as you know, the work unit never completed.

Never? I was leaving one running in the hope that late results would be better than none at all. Have we any way of telling if a WU will eventually reach an endpoint?

The long times aren't consistent either - witness this workunit which had three runs, two of which were abnormally long and one of which was two hours for the same workunit. It wouldn't surprise me to see that the Linux client was faster than the Windows one, but eight times faster?

7) Message boards : Web site : Pending wus (Message 14323)
Posted 871 days ago by Paul
There still seems to be one hang-over from the recent changes; when I go to my account page, click on Tasks then click on Pending to just filter the unawarded ones, there are two pages of results (so about forty wus). If, from my account page, I click on Pending credit there are just seven wus. I'm guessing the shortfall is a bug?
