SETI@Home Informational message -9 result_overflow
NOTE: The number of results detected exceeds the storage space allocated.



What is this telling me,
that the results didn't get stored?

This is what's known as a "noisy" WU. It means that in order to process all the information contained in the WU, the resulting output file would be too large.

These WUs aren't considered errors, and you will get credit for them as long as two other hosts return -9 results.

Berkeley will take a closer look at these WUs at a later date.
