Out of the 14, I wonder how many will look in the forums and see that they have a message?

When I saw that I had 15 inconclusives I thought O man my GPU is crapping out. But when going through the work unit list I saw that I had CPU work doing the same. And upon further looking saw that I was teamed with fermi card wingmen. Had mostly 3 resends but had some on the 4th also.
These guys were hitting 30 spikes, And I would have 2 spikes.

What worries me is that if two fermi cards validate like has been talked about in the past.

I will keep a closer look on my output though just to make sure I have no problems.

The thing is that you can't PM an Anonymous person and it's obvious that a lot don't even check their tasks page.

I've also noticed some of these that I'm paired with have been fermi cards that find the same 30 spikes James was talking about.

Some or all
just are very wrong.


Another....

All (830) · In progress (242) · Validation pending (506) · Validation inconclusive (15) · Valid (66) · Invalid (0) · Error (1) 


And it's 1 host, out of 3.
My ATI host is even worse,
State: All (2457) · In progress (2030) · Validation pending (385) · Validation inconclusive (19) · Valid (23) · Invalid (0) · Error (0) 


And the 3rd host :
State: All (692) · In progress (390) · Validation pending (141) · Validation inconclusive (25) · Valid (136) · Invalid (0) · Error (0) 


About 20% error rate atleast.
A GTX470 GTX 480 and 2 HD5870 GPUs, CPUs respec. Q6600, QX9650, i7-2600.
No AstroPulse work ofcoarse, cause there isn't AP work.

What can cause these errors, drivers, hardware?

"Validation inconclusive" is a sub-category of "Validation pending" - they used all to be lumped together, now the inconclusives are shown separately.

But they are still pending validation - a temporary state.

Since you are showing no invalid tasks, and only one error, across all three machines, my verdict would be - "no problem".

Just noticed Ive picked up 6 more inconclusives. 4 of them from my CPU. All wingmen are running fermi cards. So Im convinced its not me but them. They show 30 spikes verus my 2 or 4 spikes.

Yep, you have picked up several bad wingmates and most of them I've already PM'd them about their rigs so you have nothing to worry about atm.

Folks who I've messaged but are throwing nothing but bad tasks back into the system:

7787994 (Kiswa)
1983609 (Chris)
210476 (Jimmie Stolz) (Some good tasks, but a ton of invalids)
9113935 (adrianozattera) (Some good, lot of bad)
61827 (Robinton Family (N1CRZ, N1TUF, KB1DYD)
9608803 (randythelegend)

I got bored at this point, but good lord there are some folks producing thousands of invalids with no valid work at all.

Yes,and most of them use graphic boards to accelerate processing and also the number of invalid results. I don't use them, I may have an invalid result once in a while,as I had recently on a Solaris Virtual Machine processing a VLAR.

People I've PM'd

Both of these had machines with more than 6,000 Inconclusive/Invalid/Error results.

My only problem with all this crap is that the automagic limiters in the project specifications are not shutting down these rouge rigs.

Crap, if one on my rigs goes of into the woods somehow, don't waste the bandwidth sending it any more freaking tasks.........

Can't the servers get a better handle on this??????

That's a good point.

I'm curious to see how many project resources are being allocated to reprocessing invalid/error tasks.

I'll see if I can find anything out about this.

Next up on my list:

699798 (DG71)
8637650 (mamoru@igo-shogi)
9774123 (Nolan)
36267 (Eric Livingston)
285742 (3rik)
7888117 (HalbesHuhn)

Obviously not as it took around 12mths to get a handle on 1 infamous Anonymous user. :(

My list for this month has now passed 100 (some have already named here) and if this month is like an other lately then I'll likely get another 15-25 (I must say though that I'm getting a better response to PM's now).

Cheers.

Look, if a host is turning in valid work, by all means cut it loose.
I got 9 fine kitties doing the deed quite well here.

But, bejeezus, if a GPU goes haywire and ties it's undies in a bundy, stop sending it tasks, please. I certainly would not be offended.
