For one of the PG task, the progress is more than 100%. Is this normal? It does not show a time until completion.

It sometimes happens when a workunit is restarted or, in case of laptop computers, you change the CPU speed (for example, by changing to high/low performance). It should correct itself at the next checkpoint, it is perfectly normal because we only give an estimate of percentage complete between the checkpoints.

That sounds like a reasonable explanation except for one major problem ... on my setup (WinXPHome 32-bit, HT P4 3.0Ghz, client v6.6.36) there seems to be NO checkpointing happening?

How often do your settings allow checkpointing?

I was not aware that checkpointing was determined by "my settings" ???

Where would I check that? Taking a wild guess .... Write To disk at most every 1 second, switch between applications every 30 minutes.


EDIT: I aborted that previous task in the image I supplied so it never finished, but here's another one that I decided to let run, just to give it a chance ...



2nd EDIT: I run all my BOINC slots in a RAM DRIVE, would that have something to do with it?

UPDATE: Now over 6.5 hours elapsed and progress indicator at 228%. Still no evidence that checkpointing is happening from looking at "task properties" but there is a "checkpoint.txt" file in the slot and it has a current time stamp?

Contents of txt file ....

pmin=6163196257515673,factor_count=0,cpu_secs=22665.234,frac_done=0.812876,elapsed_secs=23284.828

FINAL UPDATE: I did not see exactly when, but somewhere between 8 and 9 hours elapsed wall clock time the task finsihed successfully and was reported.

In the boinc manager click the Advanced, preferences and under the disk and memory usage.Write to disk at most every 60 seconds is the default setting. I'm assuming it's the same in all boinc versions, for me 5.10.45 and 6.2.12. Hope this helps.
