Good afternoon,

I was just scanning through my task history, and came across something that seems odd. For this WU: http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=398122810, I got a timeout error after less than 7 hours. These tasks take about 10 hours to run on that PC. My event log doesn't go back far enough to see if I actually completed and returned that task, but I probably did. My computer very rarely have errors, and they're generally validate errors, not timeout errors. At that time I was running only PG, and I think only SR5 tasks, to help with the cleanup.

Any ideas why I might have received a timeout error after less than 7 hours on a 15 day task? Let me know if I can provide any more info that might be useful.

Thanks,
Eric

We're aware of a scenario where this can happen when the clock on your computer is set wrong. If the clock is set far enough into the future, the BOINC client thinks the task has timed out and instead of running it will report it back to the server as "timed out".

That's the only reason I'm aware of that can cause this particular error/

Please do not PM me with support questions. Ask on the forums instead. Thank you!

Thanks for the information Michael. According to my event log, the windows time sync service had some sort of issue on 6/30. Pretty weird though, I don't remember the clock being way off.

I guess that must be what happened. Thanks for the quick reply!
