When will the VALIDATION issue be corrected?

Lots of WU's awaiting validation.

No RAC updates, No user total updates, No host total updates, host average not updating as well.....

Thanks,

Ray, You made me feel better cuz I ONLY have 80 waiting for validation. lol Saw your RAC and realized I need to be more "geekish". In my best Captain Kirk voice "Scotty... I need more power!"

Now the validator seems to be crunching again. Number of "validation pending tasks" is quickly decreasing.

I got some download errors too, they increased over time within the last week or so. Today I got five new tasks of which all failed with error messages like these:

I refreshed in BOINC and A@H sent me five more WUs which all seem to be fine. They are being computed now, if something goes wrong I'll post again here.

It looks like your pc is REALLY busy doing other things and is not exclusively running Boinc, so yes this is normal.

This is on Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N570 @ 1.66GHz so CPU time is probably OK
http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/show_host_detail.php?hostid=154098

On Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2690 v2 @ 3.00GHz this same task was done in 9,494 seconds (by avx app)
http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/workunit.php?wuid=28460063

Speed (PassMark) 588 vs 17259 (for all Cores/Threads total)
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Atom+N570+%40+1.66GHz
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Xeon+E5-2690+v2+%40+3.00GHz

Atom: Single Thread Rating: 258
Xeon: Single Thread Rating: 1821

1821 / 258 = 7
(one Thread of this Xeon is 7 times faster than one Thread of this Atom for this Benchmark)

7 * 9494 = 66458 seconds (maybe) for this task when will be done on the Atom

Since Asteroids@home apps do not have (obviously) the same code as the above Benchmarks this my estimation is only raw guess
(and your Atom runs this task by SSE3 app but the Xeon did it by AVX app)


P.S.
Since "report deadline: Sun Apr 5" it is a puzzle for me why do you think that "the work should be done day ago"

Well the repeated download failed problem has returned.
I've had several such failures in succession and it takes a great deal of updating to actually get 1 WU downloaded ok.

Hi,

It may well be that the combination of using BOINC engine and some/all other applications are using all your RAM up.

I discovered (with 32GB of RAM and an i7 running at 3.7GHZ on a 256GB SSD, that RAM usage crept up and up.

Using (I'm in Win7 Ultimate) when checking with the free App: "Process Explorer" from

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
that the RAM was almost entirely used up.

Thus the CPU was spinning the gears, but getting little progress.

Using "Process Explorer" I could see which Applications were using much RAM.

I closed Process, and expected the RAM use to drop.

I tried closing BOINC.exe, and although that closed, the CPU engines just kept going, and I could not stop them.

All that was left was a restart of the PC.

I have set the BOINC useage at 90% CPU and Graphics Card RAM usage also, and that may have a bearing on the system.

The computer runs 24/7 ...So...what I do now is Reboot once per day.

Now I have no troubles.

Try it and see.

Cheers :)

I had there estimated time 2000 sec, after day it growed up to 20000 sec

Usually BOINC, when you start on some new app/project, 'thinks' the opposite - estimated time is 10x more than real.
In your case BOINC did it (estimation) wrong somehow the other way.

As you can guess it is not possible Xeon 3.00GHz to do this same task in >9000 seconds by AVX app and your Atom 1.66GHz to manage to do it in 2000 seconds by SSE3 app

Estimation should become better after you do some more tasks.
