The same happened on my two Linux desktops.
According to the server status page there are no workunits to be sent, i.e. there is no work available.

A couple of days ago I received some of those long-running WUs as well.
And just like on your machine(s), they all got stuck at random levels of completion (which stands in contrast to the previous and occasionally occuring long-running WUs).

Some ran longer than 9 hours and did not proceed farther than 10%, others were stuck at around 90% after running for 21 hours.
I canceled all of them as they've appeared to be somehow corrupted to me.

I'm using a 2+1 buffer on all of my machines, so that should not be the problem.
Also, since this morning my Linux machine doesn't receive any new WUs either...

That's odd.

I'm sorry to hijack this rather old thread, but it just fits to my problem:

I'm using a Linux and a Windows machine for crunching. My linux rig is happily crunching along, processing all those new BHspin 0.05 tasks.
My windows machine, however, does not receive any workunits at all.
I checked my application preferences and everything except for the Android application is selected.
I tried to reset the project but I'm still not getting any WUs on my Windows machine.

Is there something wrong with my account/machine or is this a general problem?

Something still seems to be wrong with those new BHspin workunits.
First they resulted in 0 credits, then 200, and now 333.

It also seems like their results are not being added to the overall computer/accounts stats.
For example, my new Linux machine completed 34 valid BHSpins up until now, each 333 credits, but only has 10,058 credits in total (it should be 11,322 based on the BHSpins alone).

Are there already some figures available on how the runtime of the new application differs between Linux and Windows?
I'm currently contemplating to migrate another one of my crunchers back to Linux, so I wonder if this will have any "negative" impact on how much I can contribute to this project?

IIRC the estimated runtime is calculated by your local Boinc client after crunching a certain amount of WUs of one and the same application.

(1) RLOF work unit that will take 30 hours or more. Hoping these will be at least 1500 to compensate for the risk of losing work or a computation error late in the unit. It seems you like fractional numbers, how about 1666.65?

They seem to be granting 1,538.46 credits for each of those new WUs.
Take a look at WU 2830585 for example.

Will the deadlines be adjusted likewise? Otherwise all the people that just crunch a couple of hours per day will be "excluded" from this project.

Thank you for the clarification!

Posted 24 Sep 2015 by TheHoosh
Are there any "conceptual" differences between those two data sets that are currently being crunched by my machines:


I've noticed that the reference_11 work units take less time to complete and also result in much smaller files being returned to the servers (which btw. is great considering my crappy internet connection).

I'm just curious :D
12) Message boards : News : New applicaion (Message 475)
Posted 18 Aug 2015 by TheHoosh
The new application seems to be working fine. Thank you for the update!

Apparenlty the new application underwent a major redesign as my machine runs much cooler than before.
With the previous app my i5-3320M burned about 17W per hour, now it's down to 11.5W per hour (same clock speed, same BOINC settings, same CPU utilization, etc.).
The average computation time per WU has risen from 13500 seconds to 22500 seconds (+67%), whereas credits have risen from 222 to 333 (+50%).

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