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

I added two single-CPU Xeon Linux VM's, I already had them running on my Xeons but for a different (non-BOINC) purpose.

thanks for the update, Scott, but I still have tons pending... somehow only 1/5th got cleaned out of my pending list (10k pending down to 8k pending)

most wus now say: didn't need on the wu which was not yet sent yesterday.

regards,

sysfried

ps: I hope this "cut out" won't turn into a loss of aprox. 20k credits for me...

good night.

Thanks for the update.

However, the two WUs I listed earlier in this thread are still showing as waiting for the wing man to be issued. They were issued to my Pentium D/windows XP machine, yet other Pentium D/windows XP machine are still being told there is no work available.

This sounds like a different problem from what you talked about in the announcement section.

Edit: The original wing man missed the deadline on Aug 11th. So it's been over two weeks since the wing man needed to be reissued, and it still hasn't.

Ouch- I think I just lost 227 WUs (227*50=11,200). I hate to point it out, but I looked at most of those results and less than 1% involved download failures, and 127 of them had a partner running them when they were canceled
PS- They all show as Pending & Canceled at the same time.?

I have some of those too, although not that many. Many of the older WU I ran today and yesterday (ID < +/- 399000) got canceled and show as pending.

Ouch indeed! Hopefully this issue will get fixed shortly, but needs to be fixed certainly imho before the project goes into Beta, unless the issue is not enough users, which I do not think it is....

How many AMD's are there here crunching anyway.

I know mine is and AMD. Is there only two of us? Strength in numbers, fellow AMD man.

Sorry, I missed that the "errors" field now shows "canceled" for both of these two WUs.

But now I need to ask another question: Why are these two results (and many more) still showing in my "pending" list?

My pending creds also went down, but now I got four WUs labeled "canceled". I'm the one who finished them with "Success" and then they go canceled? Why is that?

Thx for any help!

Same here, I still have 36 Wu's that have been canceled but are still in my Pending Credits List ... ???

9 of them never were sent to a Wingman, the other 27 had been sent to somebody though, were some of these Wu's Canceled Prematurely when they didn't need to be or have a chance to be completed by the Wingman ... ???

Another ditto:

3 WU canceled after I completed them successfully and never sent to a wingman and still showing in my Pending Credits. (Canceled with no reason?) I can see canceling the WU with errors - but why cancel one with no errors - other than the fact the server won't send it out to a wingman ...

4 WU still unsent. There has to be a bug if new WU are being issued while the unsent wingman WU stack up.

Sorry for the lost of credits/work/time, but things should be downhill from here.


hehe ... Scott, that downhill from here from here could be taken 2 ways, it could mean good or bad for the project ... :)

It looks like the Canceled Wu's are being slowly cleaned out of the pending List, I only have 21 left now out of the 36 I mentioned a few hours ago.

I think we are looking for a term like "smooth sailing from here on out" but I don't think that can be said yet. Although if the scheduler problem is fixed and the "pending" number of units does not start growing, getting older and older and older.....Then I guess that term could be used! ;)

Yes, I know what Scott meant, but the Term downhill is used a lot when things are going to go bad too, thats all I was referring to ... :)
