Hi,
My BOINC/Computing preferences.../network usage settings have Minimum work buffer set to 0.40 days and the Max is 0.50, I'm only using one core but I am using the GPU for PPS Sieves. I've been sent, among other things, two PSP LLR WUs with estimated run times of 29 hours - the actual run times on my host will be over 33 hours each. I know that the estimated run times in BOINC are not very accurate.

Has the BOINC client gone a bit bonkers and got the estimated run times badly wrong at some point or is there something else happening?

It's no big problem for me anyway.

I've noticed the same. BOINC is estimating cuda sieves to complete in 14 hours, that actually finish in 25 minutes.

Only problem is that the number of workunits in my queue reduces considerably.

Thanks. I've seen the thread about huge tasks but actually my 'problem' was the reverse.
I have a small buffer but was sent tasks that exceeded that greatly.
I'll just make the buffer 0 and increase traffic instead.

Actually, it's worse than I thought. The estimated completion time for my cuda tasks is increasing. Therefore, my queue is getting smaller and smaller. Not good given that my internet connection is very poor ATM.

I think I may to attach to another project to address this. C'est la vie.

Yes. One of my machines is now reporting initial completion times of 20 hours to complete a CUDA PPS 1.39 Sieve. Actual completion time is around 25 minutes.

The estimated completion times have increased from 8 hrs to 20 hours in around 2 weeks. Taking this to it's logical conclusion, the estimated completion times will become so large that my queue will become empty.

The beauty of BOINC is that if this becomes a big issue, I will switch to another project.

Hi all (with slow computation times)

try the following: (on WIN OS's)

..Open the 'Task-Manager' in Windows..
..check all the task's that actually running..
..you may find Boinc-Tasks running that you are not seeing in the Boinc-Manager..
..kill all the useless task here..

They eat a lot of resources and slowing down all processes

I described that behaviour already in another thread..

Happy crunching .. Parabol

The estimated completion times have increased from 8 hrs to 20 hours in around 2 weeks. Taking this to it's logical conclusion, the estimated completion times will become so large that my queue will become empty.

yes, you're right. I've checked and my times for both cpu and gpu are blowing out as well.
PPS Sieve is now at 27 hours and 321 is showing as 69 hours.

Just noticed that I've downloaded 14 genefer world record tasks. Not bad on a 3 hour buffer.

There was a problem with the WR tasks that was fixed a few days ago. Your tasks might have been downloaded before the fix.

If so, those tasks will error almost immediately with an error something like "time exceeded." The WR tasks were going out with an fpops estimate of 0, which meant the server thought you could complete a whole lot of them really quickly, and your boinc client will almost immediately decide that it's been running too long and abort it.

If none of them (downloaded on June 4th) are already running, you can either abort all of them and see if the server sends you a lot fewer replacement tasks, or you can wait and see what happens when they start to run.

If they ARE already running. then something else is happening. In that case, could you look in the scheduler reply xml file and tell me what those tasks have as an estimate for fpops (I think the tag is rsc_fpops_est)?

2 of them are about halfway through. I killed the extras and it didn't fetch any more.
I managed to find the fpops tag in "init_data.xml" not the sched reply.

Maybe I grabbed them just after you fixed it as all the previous runs on these tasks died after a few seconds.
