At setup time, I gave Boinc about 1 GB of disk space. But now http://setiboinc.ssl.berkeley.edu/sah/result.php?resultid=85883 says:

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

What does this mean ?

This has nothing to do with the disk space you alloted.

This is what is known as a "noisy" WU. If BOINC were to try and process all the data contained in the WU, the resulting output file would be too large.

So instead, it gives you the flag. It's not an error, and if the other two hosts the WU was sent to report -9s, you will get credit for it. (although very little)

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

This is what i found after roaming around for a while..

SETI@Home Informational message -9 result_overflow

NOTE: The number of results detected exceeds the storage space allocated. This work-unit warrants further attention.

This informational messages tells you that the analysis of this particular work unit has resulted in so many spikes, Gaussians, pulses or triplets that the processing is being cut short and the work unit requires further analysis by the mother ship (Berkeley).

You can read more about the error messages here:
