Message 2278 - Posted: 24 Aug 2007, 4:07:35 UTC - in response to Message 2277.  

I haven't noticed any difference on my pending. Actually the number of WUs that are pending has grown. I have checked them and most have not been re-issued. Funny that it is affecting both of my pc's. I didn't think my AMD Athlon 2400 and my Intel duo core were that rare :?



Hiya Acmefrog :)

I don't think they are that rare...I think it is more of a scheduler issue Scott needs to iron-out because I see the same thing.

I see a lot of "client detached" of the french which leaves a lot of wu's to recycle.

I didn't think they were rare as I never had problems anywhere else with getting a wingman. But some of my WUs are from 10+ days ago that are still flying solo. I guess I will wait and see.

I have three currently pending, but I will be patient and wait for them to be granted. Believe me I have run some projects where it has been months between pending and granted credit, but they were in the beta stage then.

Hi Wabbit,
I'd be happy with 3. I've got about 450 currently pending (12K+) as we speak.
Ni!

General Note: In the last 2 days while Scott has been doing the Results run-down, we have processed 10,018 results. We currently are running 5530 WU's, up from 4634 2 days ago, so it looks like opening the sign-up is attracting new users.
Unfortunately for me my pending have increased from 423 to 456, with pending credits going from 11,156 up to 12,156. Hopefully Scott finds the scheduler glitch and/or the run-down helps clean some of them out.
A quick look at Pendings my 3 Xeon/Linux test machines:
1908 9 of 12 unsent.
1909 10 of 10 unsent.
1910 8 of 12 unsent.


PS- 9,000 or so Results left in the WU queue. It will be interesting to see the project state when that runs down. ie- will all the "unsent"s get sent, etc.

Zombie67 another project, kind of like Sztaki was vtu and burp. Both bad in the pending credit, it has taught me to be patient. Eventually when all the work is turned back in will there be no more pending credit (hopefully).

Heh. Yep, I have several thousand pending on VTU too. I think, anyway, since it's been down for almost a week now, and I can't check. For BURP, now that they are taking a break, I finally have all my pending cleaned up.

Both of my computers are Intel Core2 Duo running 64bit linux (ubuntu).
Most of the WU's are in this state since 15 Aug 2007.

My pending is still growing but on the good side I had more credits granted today than I have in over a week. I still have a lot of unsent/needs to be resent work waiting for a partner. Still the queue is drying up so we shall soon see.

For what it's worth:

#379: Send In-Progress Results First
--------------------------------+-------------------------------------------
Reporter: ohiomike | Owner: ballen
Type: Enhancement | Status: new
Priority: Major | Milestone: Undetermined
Component: Server - Scheduler | Keywords:
--------------------------------+-------------------------------------------
Would it be possible to do an extra pass of scan_work_array with a
WORK_REQ flag like 'unsent_first' to allow workunits that are in progress
to be sent out first before "new" workunits are started.
Note- This comes from running a small Alpha project using HR. The
scheduler generates great numbers of WUs that are sent to only one host
(the second result remains "unsent"). The result of this is lots of users
with large numbers of Pending results.

I don't think you'll get an answer on that soon. Bruce isn't much around on Trac.
But I'll see who else I can point it to.

Thanks Ageless
I'd noticed that Tickets assigned to him didn't seem to get a very quick response. Most times you will get some type of response (even if it is just closing the ticket) fairly quickly.

My Linux VM's are starting to treat some "old cows", dating from 15 august. Back in the good ol' 60 credit days. Pending credit for many people should start to go down now. There's still over 5000 WU left thought. It might take some time to munch through these. If we knew for what machines most of these are, we could try and round up some teammates with the right type of machine to finish the stack asap.

If no new work is added it will take something like 2 weeks to get the ready to send down to near zero.
I suspect most of the work left is destined for Linux hosts,64 bit OS, and exotic cpu types that don't match up anywhere.
Seems like the vast majority will just starve.

At some point if the ready to sent isn't going anywhere I would suggest we turn HR off or modify HR and let those of us willing to risk getting invalids try to finish the rest off.It's just somewhere down the road we will get back to this same spot again :(

Maybe it can be as simple as dividing the categories into Intel/AMD for cpu types and Linux32-64/Windows32-64/Mac32-64(when avail) for OS's so this doesn't reoccur?

If I remember right the invalids were mostly when linux matched up with windows not when Intel matched up with AMD....

I will see if I can convince a few people to run some Linux.

My pending is dropping (mostly for my Intel machine) But my AMD is not so lucky. A couple of them (AMD) have been sent out :(

Not any help for Windows users, but my pending WUs have been clearing up at the rate of about 7/hour since we went on the "Linux binge". I've dropped from 412 down to 310 in the last 12 hours. That's increasing by about 1 or 2 /hour for the last week.
