I've canceled the remaining 109 workunits from this troublesome batch of work we've had running since May, since we now have enough results - finally! If you happen to return one of these results from here on out and you don't receive credit because the workunit was canceled, please let me know.

I've granted you credit - anyone else that has a similar request, just go ahead and send me a private message, that will help me track the requests better.

thanks,
Adam

I had these three running, though with the 2 crashing midway, it doesn't show the 60-100 hours each I lost in addition to what actual time shows.

WUs:
http://boinc.umiacs.umd.edu/workunit.php?wuid=1260480
(lost approx 60 hours due to crash restart when below the 1% checkpoint)
http://boinc.umiacs.umd.edu/workunit.php?wuid=1261563
http://boinc.umiacs.umd.edu/workunit.php?wuid=1260316
(lost approx 75 hours due to crash restart when below the 1% checkpoint)
(lost another approx 30 hours due to crash restart when above 95% checkpoint)

So if they didn't complete before cancelling by server, are they creditable?

I understand if you aren't giving credit for them, just wanted to ask, as I wasn't sure from your reading your post regarding these stopped WUs.

I do hope this won't happen often - can be frustrating to run big WUs just to lose them when they are 50% complete due to a crash or error, when other WUs from your or other projects could have run and completed. Or when WUs crash during the void area of the check pointing below 1% or above 95% and have to restart and lose those hours of work - that happened all to often and hope you've been able to figure that piece out (like with 2 of the 3 that cancelled)

Thanks in advance for the feedback - and offering this project. I like the fact that your project goes to help researchers for a real time assist in their workloads - it's worth the occasional crashed WU to know you are helping an individual out within their fields of study.

All The Best,

Beast


Happy BOINCing all!

hey, I'll award partial credit - can you post links directly to the results you want me to consider?

thanks

thanks, I understand if you can't though.

not sure which is the right link you need, so hopefully I get the right ones this time.

http://boinc.umiacs.umd.edu/result.php?resultid=2993720
http://boinc.umiacs.umd.edu/result.php?resultid=2993687
http://boinc.umiacs.umd.edu/result.php?resultid=2993635

Computer ID is 40420
http://boinc.umiacs.umd.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=40420

within the table of results, it's the only 3 that say 'Cancelled by server'

BTW, just curious, in the new WUs coming in, will they just trickle in or do you expect a large batch at some point. I want to plan my RAM memory requirements correctly.

Thanks again

Beast

You're good to go. The new workunits will likely trickle in until some problems can be resolved, then there might be a larger batch - probably won't be huge though. Keep you posted.
