Anybody else getting unusually high error returns?
Am currently on 103 and have no idea why...When I check it just says ran out of time for wu...but I turn over wu daily and cant see that as been the reason. It has really only escalated since the last down time...wonder if anybody else having similar experience...
Cheers.

Those are ghosted WUs from June 11-14.
They are just timing out now.

Not here..................
State: All (6047) · In progress (1986) · Validation pending (2119) · Validation inconclusive (81) · Valid (1858) · Invalid (0) · Error (3)
That is with 5 rigs crunching. Of those 3 errors, 1 was a timeout from a rig that went down weeks ago, and the other 2 are CPU errors that happened yesterday when I rebooted. I since added a time delay between boot and crunching startup which should take care of the CPU trying to do too much at once.

I only take 1 days work for the 8 cpu and 1 for the 4 cpu but the deadline dates are usually at least 2 months away....I cant figure out why all of a sudden it should be an issue...The 8 cpu is working 100%, 24/7 SETI...
Any suggestion...should I reduce the amount I am downloading...?
Thanks guys/gals...

I suspect you collected a load of "ghosts", these are tasks that the servers sent to you, but for some reason they never got there, and the servers think they did. There is little that can be done now apart from let them time out and hope you don't get any more.

It shouldn't be hard to see the difference. The tasks that time-out are STOCK SETI tasks, https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=8231523&offset=0&show_names=0&state=6&appid=
You are now running tasks as Anonymous platform. If you go back you'll probably see the tasks were 'ghosted' when you went from Stock to Anonymous platform. Happens all the time, unless you take steps to avoid it.

It only went anonymous platform after I installed the Lunatic application...which I did around late April......that is the only thing different I have done since I installed the Seti app.....

All I know is what the tasks pages show. It shows Anonymous platform on 13 Jun, then Stock on the 14th, then back to Anonymous platform, https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=8231523&offset=260
Looks as though you have a few more Ghosts to go.

It looks like you have 28 ghosts left to clear yet. ;-)

Thanks for the help....I do have to admit to been a little behind on the lingo here. I only installed the app to help crunch numbers so overall it has gone well. Regarding ghosts and the like I admit to knowing nothing....so I just let the computers do their thing....The only real adjustment I have made was the installation of the Lunatics app...which made only a slight change, that I could see. Sure I'll continue to let them work through as I am still participating in the programme....which is all that really matters to me at the moment.....only 119 to go...:-)
