Posted 5 Oct 2018 by Profile Conan
Hi Everyone!

Sorry about lots of delays in work generation but we've finally started up some new runs. Things have been pretty busy getting settled in here at RIT. We have some interesting work in the pipleline so we're hoping to have a new application out sometime this semester.

cheers,
--Travis


Before you start the new runs, I guessing that you are re-running all the old work units that failed before (some from badly configured hosts and some from faulty wu's), to clean everything up?

I say this as I am still getting work from the old batch, and no new batch is listed on the server.

Although it appears that the work units I am getting are new not old, so don't know where they come from unless the full batch had not been released before you shut off the server.

Thanks

Can the stats export be re-enabled?


Plus the sub-project data as well? I noticed recently that it was not being added to Bok's sub-project page.

Thanks

My account page is all correct now. No errors there and now shows I belong to a team.

The team stats page under "Top Teams" under the "Top Lists" still says "There are no teams". Maybe it will just take time to show up here.

Boincstats now shows updated data for the project.

It does seem that points I have earned the last few days up till your fix are not showing in my team stats. It does look like points earned since your fix are showing up in my team stats. So going forward it looks like it is working.

Thank you. Very nice to see my stats in Boincstats.


Sounds good -- if teams lost credit I can go back and sync things and make sure each team's credit is equal to the sum of all it's members.


Thanks Travis,
Yes that would be very nice, thank you.

My team was created when I joined, so adding up the members will give the correct total.

At the moment it is 578,314 cobblestones short of the correct Team total, by my calculations.

My Team is Cobar Spiders.

Thanks again

Hello
Fourth day without a single SCG point.
Before, 8 CPU at CSG tasks did provide about 130 000 per day.
I'm considering toggling to another project.


Are you not getting workunits? Or is it that the credit for them is too low now?


There has not been any data export for most of the week. So no SCG Points have been added to the stat sites.
I am getting work units and slowly getting points for them once returned, however validation is slow.

I have reported some other issues in this thread. (It includes the fact that Teams are no longer listed for this project)

Thanks for your efforts

ATTENTION to ADMIN

There has now developed a number of problems with this project


There is a Database Error associated with peoples Account pages

There are NO Teams listed any more

There has not been any Data Exported to Stat sites for the past few days.


I know you are busy but these issues do need some attention, before they develop into something much more serious.

Thanks

9) Message boards : Number Crunching : Can validation be changed for inconclusive work units (Message 7399)
Posted 30 Jan 2018 by Profile Conan
I have this work unit that is marked as inconclusive.
This normally is OK, but with timed out work units being counted as errors I can no longer get credit for this work unit, even though I have completed it successfully.

As it took me over 66,000 seconds to process, I would like the credit, so was wondering if these type of work units can be validated some other way?
Otherwise it has been a waste of time for me and no benefit for the project.

Well adrianxw, you have stirred the pot and have perhaps gotten part of what you would have liked.

A balance of project rewards went out the window when GPUs came along, then optimized applications and other things like that.

It maybe still an ideal, but is very hard to achieve.

People will still go to whatever project takes their fancy and point rewards may have nothing to do with it.

Sorry to see any volunteer leave a project as that means less work is being done unless someone takes their place.

Good luck with your other projects.

Have a good New Year and I may see you round the traps.

Happy New Year to everyone else that celebrates it at this time of year, and Travis keep up your good work as good admins are hard to find.

>>> couple batches

We've been saying this since June.....


Sarcasm and being ungrateful seem to go hand in hand these days, which is a pity.

If you did the amount of work that Travis does across multiple projects (not just CSG) and teaching classes, then you should be amazed at the lack of problems that arise across his projects.

Credit (or points) are a minor thing compared to getting a project running smoothly and staying running with all the work behind the scenes as well.

The projects work units run my computers very hard and hot, so a credit (or point) bonus for running them is fine by me.

Being sarcastic to the admin of a well run project (and responsive as well), will not win friends, being logical and polite just might.

Of course we have all heard it before that if we don't like what a project is doing then we are free to leave, and that course of action is open to all.

I am happy with the current status, probably because I run so many other projects that pay me bugger-all even compared to SETI, which is not the greatest payer of points, so I believe that some higher paying projects help to even my credit out overall.

Please be patient as there is only one Travis and we don't want to wear him out.

It has now been over 4 days and still no data export.

Also validation is still way behind, I have 38 waiting, the server says just 5 are? A problem?

Travis maybe on holidays?

At least we can still get work and upload results.

Also there has been no data export for the last 3 days and the validation of work seems to be running behind schedule.

I've started up some new runs, whose workunits should look like: "mnist_fixed_100ep_nopool_oct_3_X" where X = 1 to 5. Let me know if you're having any issues with these!


I can't see these listed on the server, so when do they start?

Got another one of the Pooling WUs that is going to be a very long runner

This WU
has been running for 18 Hours 46 minutes, it is at 5.882% done with 12 Days 12 Hours 36 Minutes to go.

It is an exact_genome_1503071857_31_8692_3

Hope when this one finishes that I get a bit more credit than I did on the last 5 Day WU I ran.

Conan


Well this one has now moved onto 2 Days and 15.686% done with 10 Days 21 Hours to go.

Conan


Now up to 4 Days 5 Hours and 31.372% done and still 9 Days 6 Hours to go.

It is a long one.

Conan


Well have now progressed to 7 Days 18 Hours and 58.823% done with 5 Days 10 Hours to go.

Conan


Now up to 10 Days 3 Hours at 84.313% and 1 Day 21 Hours left to go.

Should make before deadline.

Conan


It has finally finished after 11 Days 11 Hours 34 Min Run Time and 7 Days 12 Hours 34 Min CPU Time

It paid a bit more than 500 credits at 4,435.22 credits, which puts it in the very low cr/h bracket (at 24 based on cpu time, it would be on 16 based on run time)

Fixed the issue -- the assimilator is back up and running (which is also the work generator), so work should be flowing again!


Not according to the server status page, it still says Zero (0) work units available.
Perhaps it takes some time for the system to sort itself out?
