Pretty simple question :-

I have a batch of units in my Error list.
A couple are what I expected as I was fiddling with my settings then , but
the vast majority turned up today.

SENT. 14 Mar 2013, 15:45:54 UTC
Time reported or deadline. 14 Mar 2013, 16:29:40 UTC

Pretty much like the server gave me only 45 minutes to crunch them fron the
time I got them.

Server hic-up or something more my end.

Regards.
Chris.

Q: I have tasks in my task list, that timed out with an impossibly short deadline!

A: Those tasks are VLAR and therefore won't be sent to a NVidia GPU.

The following happened:
Your host asked for work. The CPU got assigned some VLAR tasks (marked as .vlar in the task name). Due to a communication hiccup your host never received the server reply with the tasks. After a while it asks again for tasks. It also sends a complete list of what tasks it already has. The server compares this to what you got assigned. It finds those .vlar tasks you never got and - with 'resend lost results' active - wants to send them again. Only this time your host is asking for NVidia GPU tasks. As the .vlar tasks can't be send to NVidia GPU they expire instead - showing as time out with impossibly short deadline.

NB This can also happen to AP tasks, if there is no GPU app.

Server related due to congested comms.
Not on your end.

Thanks for the INSTANT reply :-)

Why though would the units report so soon as they should in an
ideal world only report when done or if they error from a propper error.

I would have thought the server would have no interest in units untill a
certain number of days had passed ...not after 45 minutes.

Sorry if I sound dumb, but I am not a coder or do more that build my
own PC's and crunch/serf/play games/work. :D

These are ghost vlar tasks that can't be resent to your GPU
(they never reached your computer)
