Yes as long as they get "their results".... of course if the 3000 WU's were spread 2 per system across the available Windows systems the researchers would get their 3000 WU's back faster than waiting on fewer systems with huge queued stacks of WU's waiting on long due dates.

IMHO

For those Windows users waiting for a WU, like myself, a short giggle just to make you smile. Has nothing to do with not having enough work for the available Win systems,,, BUT....

If you look at the Application page the versions of Window OS's supported by the various application has never been updated to include Windows 10.

Example
Weather At Home 2 (wah2)
Platform Version Created Average computing
Microsoft Windows (2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8) 8.24 3 Nov 2016, 14:42:42 UTC 10,943 GigaFLOPS

New Work and Old Preferences....

During the recent update to current BOINC software all of the Project related preferences, (Which application you wished to run) disappeared. Are W/U's now being distributed solely by System configuration and capacity or in the back ground are "old" preferences still in play ?

Thanks

Question on a Windows 845 work unit. The following unit posted trickles and uploaded as complete and successful, but received no credit. As a side note during it's computation I did have a power failure as a result of the tornadoes that hit Dallas TX last night. I was not home but it appears that my system did a graceful shutdown via my UPS battery backup.

https://www.cpdn.org/workunit.php?wuid=11912558

Could someone more knowledgeable than my self look at the results to see if they were valid and if credit will be granted later ?

Thanks

Well it has been several weeks since Credit updates have been posted for export. Script scheduling or operator initiated it could use a bump

It also appears that the Stat's Export point that BOINCStat's and other statistic pages look at has been changed or affected.

Currently the Time update is 2019-05-29 09:16:39 UTC (14 days 04:00:49 old)

This normally updates daily regardless of Stat's Export which is usually a Sunday night event.

Reference URL is https://boincstats.com/en/stats/2/project/detail

Dave

You mention a Test site. Is there another project that users can volunteer on to assist with "Testing" ?

The Project preferences under out accounts does not list permissions for BETA testing etc.

I was looking at the specs of computers running CPDN this morning and noticed there are a lot of Android devices signed up. Is there a way of telling those users when they sign up that they will never get any work for their phones/tablets etc?


If someone could someone with ADMIN level to that effect then itwould down load to each client and user during next update.

And a "sticky" note posting in one or more forums would be approiate.

Well we are almost to a month now with no credits. Our old friend is back.

If this was not a worthwhile project no one would put up with no work and no credit and limited communications from the top.

Darn good thing that there are many other worthwhile projects to burn clock cycles on.

If you add Tasks by Application it does not equal Tasks in Progress.

Do we have missing Applications or is the Total not working ?

So now is when you want to do all the OS patches that require reboots and change the fan that rumbles a little now and then ?

CPDN has just taken away the excuse... but I have that long running WU that I don't want to disturb !

The concept of re-cycling or re-issuing the abandoned or lost WU's that are out there "assigned" to a computer that is no longer crunching for CPDN but the extended due by date has not expired has multiple purposes.

1. Get the WU to someone who can crunch it (science being done)
2. Finish up researchers models that have holes in them from missing WU's
3. Clear out older WU's from the 100K base of WU's in the Field

They are not Dead but they are stuck in the Twilight Zone.
