I generated a larger batch of workunits for the other application. These should have a significantly longer runtime (my tests have them about 40x longer than the previous batch). Let me know how they're working!

It shows about 30% at 3 hours run time for me. So far, so good.

Another PC I have is getting this message.

Seems kind of strict since the PC that's actually running one of these tasks isn't taking nearly that.

Thanks! I'll fix that for the next batch of WUs.

I am computing 4 WUs now and it seems without problem now. Memory usage is about 350 MB on WU.

So, how long does it take to validate?

There is still only one validator running, it is possible that it is validator for Motion Detection app as few day ago and there is no validator assigned for Feature Detection app. Othewise I suppose that validator should check it immediatelly when there are enought results for comparing.

Just got the validator for this application up and running. They should be validated and credit awarded now.

Houston we have a problem.

Here are two linux computers:
http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/wildlife/workunit.php?wuid=3074

Notice they actually match.


Here's a linux/mac mix:
http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/wildlife/workunit.php?wuid=3067

Notice they aren't even close.

The linux computers list a lot more data points, while the macs don't list many at all. There is definitely something different between the apps. It probably has something to do with the sampling rate being off on one or the other.[/url]

They were not validated, nor were this ones. If you've got BOINC correct installed, the validator didn't even look at them, as the text had not changed to indicate some mismatch.

I think I've fixed the problem. You were right about the sampling rate. I've updated the linux application to 0.02 so hopefully this fixes the problem.

You may have fixed something, but that something is definitely not the validator.
All my probably successful tasks hang in validation, waiting for the validator to do something. They are not "inconclusive" but plain waiting for the first peek of the validator at them.

Woops! I know the problem. I had the wrong app specified in the config.xml, so the validator was trying to validate the other application. Should be fixed now.

So, are the 0.01 tasks going to at some point validate? I'm a little tired of incubating the goose egg.

Please define "now" ;)
Nothing happened until now, so your definition of "now" seems to be a bit more on the day scale than on the minutes.

This is the last week of classes here, so "now" might mean today sometimes. :) I wanted to make a couple modifications to the validator, so that results that might not match up because of the problem with the 0.01 version of the linux application will still get credit.

Started up the validator, messed something up slightly, which will have some of them being flagged inconclusive, but I fixed that quickly and the next pass through they should validate successfully.
