I wonder how many are going to be fed up with Christmas weeks before it actually arrives? The marketting clowns have been pumping Christmas specials for weeks now, one of my friends said she had seen Christmas stuff coming into the shops where she is in AUGUST!!!!!!!

This has caused several people, possibly many people to waste huge amounts of CPU time. I've had nothing back from my report or message, seems like dumping the project was the best option, so, dumped from my systems.

I've still had no input from the admin or crew here. The BOINC people have said there is little to be done apart from resetting the project, which I did, and that killed and sent back the damaged job, so it can go and waste someone elses time.

Dumping the project.

How long does a work unit usually take on your machine, how long have these had? If they have run 50% longer than normal, yes, I'd suspend them for now. I am kind of hoping the admin will get onto this case and do something about it. As it is, they appear to be burning an awful lot of CPU time for nothing. Aborting them means they just get sent to someone else and the cycle repeats.

I sent hum a private message yesterday to which I've had no reply yet. I've not deleted mine, I don't want them going out again wasting someone elses CPU time. These tasks are wasting weeks of crunching.

It is certainly possible that it is a bad work unit. If I delete it, it will be sent out again, and someone else might loose hours of compute time on it, this could happen several times. It has, so far, been sent out 5 times, one ended with a download error, so I discount that, but two more show "Timed out - no reponse" which is probably what would happen to it here, so it has wasted a load of crunching time. I'd prefer a project member look at this and remove the task. It's name is ps_181106_input_59651_5.

This machine normally runs an Asteroids work unit for a little over an hour. I have a job on here now which shows 100.000% progress and 00:00:00 remaining but it has so far "run" for 17:37:55. There is nothing on the transfers page. Suspending and releasing just stopped and started the job from where it was, it continues, and my CPU monitor shows all cores and threads running 100%. It would seem to me that it is stuck in a loop of some kind from which it has no way out.

I expect a lot of us have the same problem.

All of mine that were pending upload went while I was out. I have allowed new tasks, it has done a couple and they have gone back without issue, looks okay.

Both of my machines have uploaded their finished work, but I still cannot "Report", still, progress.

They are still sending work units out. Their upload server is going to be really busy when they get it sorted.

All of my units that were stuck uploading yesterday have gone this morning. I can't report, but hey, it happens, it'll be fixed quite quickly.

We've seen this before, it'll get sorted fairly soon. I have six work units stuck in upload on this machine alone.

My upload queue is cleared now, took a while but I expect the upload server was being hard pushed with lots of files from lots of users.

Still downloading jobs though.

The behaviour I mentioned before, ie. uploading 100% then stopping has changed, now it stops straight away, I'm guessing the arrival disk or partition is no longer available or is full. Alternatively, maybe someone is working on the system.

Neither of my systems here can upload finished jobs. Oddly, if it is the space issue, you would expect them to complain at the start of the upload, but these are uploading to 100% then sitting there, waiting for an ack from the host. Wild guess, they upload into a scratch area which gets transferred to the final place upon completion, and it is failing then.
