Oh, well that's good to hear that you are not one in the same Natalia. Sorry for not realizing that and accept my apology and thanks. And it sounds like you're aware of her antics then lol.

Was so close to hitting 20Mil in points too. Good luck in you next adventures and hope to see all you bring on another project as the admins here really were on top of things and always responsive.

The credits on this project suck now compared to what is used to be on R9. What incentive is there for us now that it takes so much longer per WU but yet we get paid less credit.

Oh, and Natalia you need not answer/reply as you are completely out of touch with reality on any project your involved with. Plus you're rude as hell to your volunteers by being so dismissive of them. You should be ashamed.

I wanted to hit a personal goal for myself of at least 20 Million. But since the project admins don't care about their volunteers, then I'm not going to care about their project. I'm done with it and any other project Natalia is involved with.

I hope others will follow and dump this project based on simple principals. Have fun doing your work without the volunteer crunchers.

(mic drop!)

Hi all! For rank 9, we have a default application which is being awarded with run_time*benchmark credits using averaged statistics. But with app_info.xml, BOINC does not consider actual runtime but uses an average estimate obtained on default application. So, if an optimized application works 7 times faster, then the computer receives 7x credit for the same runtime. For rank 10, we have only default application and we are only testing if the search will make sense at all.


Well, it's been a while so testing phase should/better be done. Also, [B@P] Daniel said most of the optimization is now included in the new R10 app. So was anything done about the credit on these longer running tasks?

Server doesn't seem to be able to handle upload and download of Work Units. Can anything be done to help handle this Sprint?

Thanks hoarfrost! You and your team really are putting in some hard work with this Sprint going on. And then you go ahead and take on this issue...bravo.
Most projects would have not even bothered, heck some don't even respond.

Once again thank you.

Yes, did not see the responses in time to solve this. Never had this issue before with any other project, some with even more tasks to report.

I did a project reset to at least get more WUs to keep crunching. I did make a copy of my Rakesearch project folder with all the "wu_xxxxxxxxx.txt" files in in and copied back over after reset, but did not help. Client page status (http://rake.boincfast.ru/rakesearch/results.php?hostid=3640) still shows the 1001 tasks that wouldn't report as "In Progess" along with new WUs.

@hoarfrost Any way to get these "orphaned" WUs to report? I have the "wu_xxxxxxxxx.txt" files, but Boinc Manager doesn't show the WUs "ready to report" anymore since project reset.

Getting this on this machine http://rake.boincfast.ru/rakesearch/results.php?hostid=3640

7/26/2018 6:33:49 PM | Rake search of diagonal Latin squares | Sending scheduler request: To report completed tasks.
7/26/2018 6:33:49 PM | Rake search of diagonal Latin squares | Reporting 1001 completed tasks
7/26/2018 6:33:49 PM | Rake search of diagonal Latin squares | Requesting new tasks for CPU
7/26/2018 6:33:50 PM | Rake search of diagonal Latin squares | Scheduler request failed: Error 413


They all finished uploading, but just stay at "ready to report". I've shutdown and restarted BOINC and also fully rebooted to no better results, just the same error. Finished tasks don't clear and I have no idea what's up.

It's 1001 finished tasks too so I don't want to reset project either. Any ideas?

Yep, same here. Shitload cancelled as well. WTF?

At least make an announcement so us users know what is going on and why.
