I had to cancel whole '9' series of work units on server.
Please cancel all WU's with '9' as first number in WU name.

Apologise for inconvenience

Thanks for letting us know! I was already wondering why they were running for 22+ hours and were still not done.

I have released two new small batches of WU (10 and 11).
If the batches works again longer please give me a shout on forum...

All of them are not working properly?

Edit:

Ok, I have cancelled both batches until we solve the problem. Is no point to waste your power...

I'm not sure if this information helps : The _9_ series had checkpoint files that consisted of a single line containing only the character "0" (0x30, not 0x00) followed by CRLF after 15+ hours

After 12 Hours and a restart and starting over from Zero I killed the 9 Program Tasks.

Now I have some 8 Programs Tasks running I have my CPU set to run only 7 CPU Tasks and their are 14 Tasks running and taking 100% CPU Usage.

I have no idea...
Your host shows 7 tasks in progress and the host have 12 threads, so Universe should take only 7 threads. If takes more then is something wrong with you manager (Universe are not MT application, and can't take more then one thread for one task).

I have no idea....

BOINC's "suspend" doesn't work on your application (p.s.: on windows, not sure about *ix), suspended tasks keep running. So if you have 7 tasks running and the host goes into panic mode and starts 7 different tasks with an earlier deadline, you will end up with 14 active tasks (BOINC doesn't notice that and marks the paused ones as "suspended" in the GUI).

The same problem exists at FiND@Home, still unsolved, so if you find a solution, maybe you could share it with them. Unfortunately they have not created their application properly so the executable doesn't contain the BOINC API version string (I supposed that it might be a version issue but could not verify it).

p.s.: This behaviour might have a bad side effect, when a workunit ends while it is supposed to sleep, it reports an error "result file present too long" (the wording is from my memory, might be slightly different) as BOINC doesn't pick up the result immediately (it doesn't watch suspended applications)

I restarted the computer and now only 7 Tasks are running now.
Note that I do not keep tasks in memory and after I Exited BOINC Client 6 Tasks were still running under Task Manager.

What is going here?
I just lost about 50 hours of crunching time because the server cancelled all my workunits. But these weren't from series 9, they were from 10 and nearly finished...

Any estimate of when new work will arrive? Our team designated Universe to be the Project of the Month. :)
