Hello

I use a virtual machine (computer number 8536) on my Windows computer, and half of this VM units lead to Validation inconclusive ( http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/csg/results.php?hostid=8536&offset=0&show_names=0&state=3&appid= ).

I have not this issue with my other computer (number 7240) which is under the same OS (Linux Mint).

Is it normal or does my virtual machine have a problem (maybe hyperthreading) ?


Edit : Well, i browsed a bit the Internet and found that : http://wahlnetwork.com/2013/09/30/hyper-threading-gotcha-virtual-machine-vcpu-sizing/

In fact, it seems to be no possible solutions to use hyperthreading in virtual machines.

Yes, I see that I now have a Silver badge and ~60K credits added (that's, I think, what I have crunched these days).

Thanks a lot for having fixed this issue so quickly Travis.

Have a nice day.

Less important thing : despite validated units, i'm still stuck to the the score I had a few days ago.


This should be happening, I think I fixed it. Let me know if it's not working!


Issue seems not to be solved. I still have the same amount of points (99 680) as I had a few month ago. Nevertheless, units are noticed ok & credited in the Task list

Besides, why do the units reward so few credits ?


I did have the credits incorrectly set for the validation. For now I removed the static scoring and am using the BOINC automatic score. Out of curiosity, where do you think you should be for credit/hours on this app?



Well, I was just looking at the previous year units credit rewards and the one we get now. As I said, that's not very important :) (and by the way, credit got these days haven't been added to the total).

Anyway, as M0CZY said above, units size is a problem, especially if you have a slow connection or a fixed amount of data for the month.

In my opinion, if it is not possible to reduce their size, you might make a big red warning about it in the project settings (like other projects do for RAM usage or such thing).

Hello,

I've received a few units, both on my Windows 7 64 bit Home (v. 0.02) and my Linux 64 bit.

Linux seems to work correctly but all Windows lead to error (0 second computing).

Edit : Example or error :
