Is there any progress with this issue?
I would like to do some work for a repaired U@H again...

Btw, respect for all those users who try to analyze the issue.

AFAIR, i can confirm this. Things started to get messy on my machine, when i ran LHC & Universe.
Doesn't necessarily have to mean something, however....

I've got a whole bunch of problems with U@H in the moment.
Upload problems, no new work, calculation errors on several machines. I'll pause U@H until knowing more.

Is there anything interesting you could actually tell us, Grzegorz?

Many WUs have been calculated since the article from April. Maybe there are some interesting new observations you could tell us about? =)

Seems like someone with a very, very high amount of cores, has surprisingly bunkered all the remaining work.


Surprise, surprise. This is the first time that a member with an RAC of 190K has passed the 1 million in one day. Bunkering seems to be working..It also helps when the validator is switched on.. Win at all costs.


Telling the crew of a project about an upcoming challenge also helps, so they can prepare for it.

I know, that points in BOINC are topic of very hot discussion, but I have an impression that Universe@Home gives to many points for work...


I don't think so.
IMO, Point inflation is something from the past. Crossproject comparison does not make sense anymore since the upcoming of GPU Apps, Bitcoin Utopia or some very "generous" projects.

Crunchers are only able to compare themselves in a reasonable way with others within the same project. F.e. comparing the Points of MindModeling with those of Einstein@home just makes no sense.

From this point of view, all you have to do to be "fair" is, to keep the U@H credits per App in reasonable relations within U@H.

In the beginning of U@H, you would have been free to choose any amount of point per wu - the people with much production would be on the top, the guys with less production below.
Changing the amount of points NOW would mean to touch a running credit system, where very much people have already collected points in the times of higher creditratios, while others who joined later won't be so lucky.

We are happy about that.

I hope the project has not to face any difficulties because of this change?
What did the trick? I originally thought that this whole startrack-whatever-thing would simply have to produce files like ~25 MB compressed?

Edit:
Aaaand, i didn't notice:
Is the new application already on production or still on Testserver?
I've seen that the testserver has still 20k WU ready to send?

@cykodennis
Thanx for the tip. Boinc program-data is not indexed and is excluded from security essentials.
I've watched it happen in windows taskmgr - boinc grabs the universe core while boinc tasks in the other cores drop to 0%. After a period of time, the event log says the universe task has finished and transmissions start. The other boinc tasks also attempt to start after their error message.
Maybe it's my version of boinc (7.4.27) which has an unfortunate interraction with universe ?


I've had the error with an older version of a Gerasim@home application. It was really annoying and i "fixed" it by using BOINC 7.0.28 instead of an actual version.
I had it also while doing some LINUX-WINE experiments with an windows only application. I honestly have to say, that i don't really understand whats this error all about.
Some say it has to do with uploads, some say it is something checkpointing related.

However, obviously it won't be really important with the new application.

I've seen this error message before in past years.

Check, just for fun, windows indexer and anti virus (as explained here http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=9870&postid=58980#58980), just to be sure.

Zombie, do you have such problems with uploads & deadlines?
IIRC your location was california?
