Well done. It must be quite a lot of work by yourself.

@Kyong
Your https log-on page has the wrong certificate. People can't attach because of this.

Workunits are being adding now. Just wait till the adding is complete. They should show up now at once instead of increasing like before.

Hi Radim,

Unfortunately, there still seems to be a shortage of WU.

Regards,
Cliff

Hello Radim,

still no WUs available at this time.
I got one in the last few days, but the queue has dried out again.

I know you are quite busy with your personal problems, so please don't take this as criticism. Just wanted to let you know what's going on.

Many greetings
and all the best!

Hi,

Asteroids are not now sending any Work units to me at all, for the last couple of days.

I have "Updated" Asteroids several times manually, but I just get "Communication Deferred" advice, then the advice clock ticks down 5 seconds then zilch.

Using Win 7 Ultimate 64bit - Plenty of processing power etc.

Appreciate advice.

Cheers

Kerry

Hi Kerry

According to the server stats for your computer the server has 107 cuda work units assigned to your computer. If your computer is showing no work then maybe you reset the project at some time. This leads to the unfortunate situation that the server thinks you have work but you don't and there is no way you can cancel them, you just have to wait for the tasks to time out so that they can be sent to someone else.

Under normal circumstances this does not matter a great deal, but right now it is significant because the admin has stated that new work units will not be release until all the existing units have been processed and returned.

In the case of your units we will have to wait until the 23rd March until they have all timed out and been assigned to other users, and then wait until those re-assigned units have been processed before new work units will be release.

This means that we will all be kicking our heals for at least another week unless the admin is proactive in cancelling the remaining work units or shortening their life to say one day so that the remaining units have a chance of being processed sooner.

Cheers.

Thanks Xperos,

It seems a dopey sort of way to operate the Work Units.

I had a PC crash here, due to lots of lightning strikes causing mains power blips.

SETI + Asteroids + Milky Way all frozen when I restarted the PC.

I had to reset all projects.

SETI and Milky Way loaded new tasks and are rocketing along OK.

Sadly the Asteroids setup as you describe means that for some days - weeks ? Asteroids won't supply new tasks, until all the 'deleted at reset" tasks are given to others and processed.

It's an odd sort of Setup, SETI and Millky Way don't have any such problems.

I shall just carry on, and at some indeterminate future time, perhaps Asteroids will send me more Work Units.

Cheers

Hi Kerry,

Just to be clear, to my knowledge, all the projects suffer from the same problem because they are all using the same Boinc server software, albeit different versions. When a project is reset the server ought to cancel any outstanding work units on that account but in my experience that doesn't happen.

You didn't experience the same problem with SETI and Milky Way because those projects are generating new work units that can be sent to you straightaway. The difference here is that the admin of Asteroids wants to clear all the work units from the old job before starting the new workload with a clean database. That means there are no new units being released at this time so none to send. We are waiting on 1,800+ work units that are out in the field to be returned before you will see any quantity of new units. In the meantime you may catch the odd one that is re-assigned due to computing error or timeout.

Cheers.

A core client side bug. The only way to tell the server that the host will never return those WUs anymore it to detach, then re-attach the same host (and merge the two host entries back into one).

I did that on FiND when they had upload server trouble (uploads didn't throw an error but all results were invalid), the results went into the state "abandoned" after the re-attach and the server sent them out again (without having to wait for the deadline to expire).

OK, 1626 total in progress. At historical pace, these should be finished by day's end. Then do we get a normal load? The last distribution was small
