simply leave your box connected to Berkeley and let it do it's thing

- it 'corrects itself' all by itself . . . IF left alone

@ least it worked for me . . .

Works for me too!

These days people tend to forget that boinc is designed to do it's thing (mostly) alone...

Theres nothing that I do to my box at all. I check to make sure its running, and thats it. Usually I can tell that when the fan is running full bore. Otherwise, it downloads, uploads, connects, retries, keeps retrying till it gets thru, and on and on......

I remember these boards being flooded with this stuff, and it seems a new wave is coming in. Theres very little that I have to do to my BOINC setup. I have all the projects I wanna be attached to attached, and I set it to either get work from a specific project or not. Right now, I'm running Einstein and Rosetta, my computer bogs down way too much for 2 einstein WU's. Next month, I'm running straight Rosetta, doing personal goals for a while now. :-)

YMMV

Message 620006 - Posted: 16 Aug 2007, 1:58:01 UTC - in response to Message 619560.  

I admit to being one of those fools who hasn't got a clue.

But my SETI has been doing wierd stuff all day. The CPU time reads 5 hours, the progress is .005% and the time to completion is 7 hours and increasing, not decreasing, every second or two. That's a first for me.

I know SETI has no new work, but why should it be stuck at .005% yet using CPU time and adding more time to completion?

See-- I told you I had no clue. Enlightenment?

O.K., I did that. Now the COU time reads 2 minutes, Progress is .001% and the Time to Completion is 2 hours and climbing.

OTOH, I got three new WUs. Gonna try that procedure again. Wait one.

Done. It re-started the clock, but TTC is still increasing.

I'll let it run awhile, maybe it will correct itself.

Thanks for the suggestions.

So we got a run of bad WUs?

Will it let me stop the one it's working on and go to the next one?

You can suspend the 'bad one' and it will switch to next in line.
Of the 10 units I got from that batch, one not started yet, only one has caused problems.

I can also read these messages fine, but the mixed use of upper/lower case is bloody annoying. To prevent my being annoyed, I just skip them. :p

I aborted the WU my computer was stuck on yesterday, switched to a new one and it hasn't budged in two hours. no CPU time, no Progress. I've let my present and past computers run 24/7 for several years processing SETI. After being inactive for two days, now almost 3, I was hoping it would start up again, but that doeosn't seem to be happening. Ain't no reasaon to have it on for days at a time with nothin goin on. Will WUs start spontaneously? Might as well shut the box down, give it a rest. Steve Gaber

In addition to the one I aborted earlier, there are three unstarted WUs, each with the same Time to Completion -- 01:58:42. That's suspicious, ain't it? Should I abort all of them and hope for better WUs? Steve Gaber
