Hello forum,

It seems that the Total Credit is not updated for this project.

My Total Credit, as you can see on this page is 2,250,240.
However, if you look down at the bottom of this BOINCstats page, this number was reached at Oct 31.
Looking at p.e. this page, you can see that I finished and was awarded credit for a number of WU's on Nov 1 and Nov 2.
Obviously, my question is: What happened to these credits?

Have a nice day,
Ruud van der Kroef

The only person that can look at the "results.php" page is you. You will need to list which computer and/or which workunits you think you didn't get credit for...and even then, I'm just a volunteer like you.

Edit: I checked and BOINCStats shows the 420 credits for the 1 task I turned in yesterday. Are you sure that the tasks were not declared invalid?

Brian,

Maybe I did not make myself clear enough, but I did get credit for the completed WU's. However, the credits I got after a certain timestamp on Oct 31 are not accumulated into the Total Credits.

Regards,
Ruud

Hello again,

I did some more research, so yesterday Nov 02 at approx. 23:19h I saved the 'Your computers' page in a Word document.
Below a part of this page for one particular host is shown:

[i]
ID: 54911            synstar00	home	200.79	20,160	GenuineIntel Intel(R)      Linux           2 Nov 2009 3:13:19 UTC
Details | Tasks                                         Xeon(TM) CPU 3.06GHz       2.6.27-15-generic
Cross-project stats:                                    [Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 9]
                                                        (4 processors)
[/i]


If you look at this page now (Nov 03, 10:30h), you see the following:

[i]
ID: 54911            synstar00	home	217.77	20,580	GenuineIntel Intel(R)      Linux           3 Nov 2009 7:41:54 UTC
Details | Tasks                                         Xeon(TM) CPU 3.06GHz       2.6.27-15-generic
Cross-project stats:                                    [Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 9]
                                                        (4 processors)
[/i]

So the 'Total Credit per Host' is updated, but the '(Grant) Total Credit' as shown on the 'Your Account' page is NOT updated.

I would think that more people are affected by this, but I have not seen anything.

Regards,
Ruud

Similar things have happened in the past, either on this project or other projects.

Just hope it corrects itself in a few days, as we're back to not hearing anything from Ben, so we're back on auto-pilot...

I have stopped the download of new C@H WU's on most of the systems I am running on, (most of which are running unattended) and switched them to Einstein@Home.
After the accumulation stopped on Oct 31, 207 WU's have been completed and validated, which means I am missing 86,940 credits in the Total.
Right now 47 WU's are running or waiting to run.

For the first time in a long time, there are completed workunits with pending credits. Right now, I have two of them waiting.

I also noticed that the number of available workunits for download is getting very low. Unless this is corrected soon, this will run dry.

I also have 38 WU's pending.

I note the transitioner is down with a backlog of 20 hours at present. Presumably it will get fixed today or CPDN will be very happy.

Cheers

Hi all,

I have noticed the Transitioner is working again, and all my pending tasks have been awarded credit.
The Total Credit as shown on the 'Your Account' page however, is still not updated.
I guess I will just have to wait.

Personally, if there was a db corruption, what you are experiencing are signs of that. The Transitioner hiccup was probably not...

That said though, I applaud you for having continued to process. You probably won't get any progress by posting on the message boards though. I suggest you email or call Ben personally. You can get that info by clicking on the Ben Wandelt tab along the top, then People, and then Ben Wandelt.
