This is insane. This user sabotages number crunching.
Look at the stats:

Looks like it, https://www.primegrid.com/results.php?hostid=1057098.

Even if this user is not producing any useful results, only producing waiting time, it does not prevent others from crunching efficiently.

Maybe pause to think about the master of entropy at work.
I hope the A/C is running 24/7 to 'make sure' the computer doesn't overheat.
If we all wish together, could it be possible for the computer to have a cataclysmic 1=0 error and puff out of existence?

What I have just realised is that what we have here is the anti-cruncher.
Ancient PrimeGrid folklore forewarned of the coming of the anti-cruncher.
It doesn't seem to be as bad as I was led to believe it would be.

Not likely. The host is not processing anything. It is merely downloading WUs and waiting for them to time out, then deleting and downloading more. It has been doing so since last February. Probably doesn't use any more power than a nightlight.

The owner may have died. It happens, even to folks in our community. One's imagination can run wild with that.

An alternative hypothesis is that his intent is evil and he is just looking for attention.

Either way, there must be a way that this host could be "dis-enrolled" so that it would no longer be served. After all, if someone were deliberately faking results in order to sabotage a project, the powers that be could and would do so.

Have pity on the dead guy's heirs and lay wunk to rest.

I know it wouldn't be using much power - why I said 'make sure'.

The owner may have died. It happens, even to folks in our community. One's imagination can run wild with that.

That occurred to me a couple of hours ago - hopefully it is not that.

An alternative hypothesis is that his intent is evil and he is just looking for attention

Obviously flunked out of evil school.

Yes. Excommunicado!

Of course, you're right. But it is a bit frustrating when you have spent days on a WU and then it takes weeks until it is validated.

How is this possible to be above zero? - must have accidentally completed a task or 2.

It's the weirdness of the RAC algorithm. It's quite hard to get 0 RAC if you've ever earned credit. Feel free to peruse my old computers: I have a machine that last checked in 9 years ago and has a RAC of 0.09. Another one I set up with Linux and used for 2 tasks of app testing, 31 credits in 2015. It also has a RAC>0, all my old machines still have a nonzero RAC. Just how it is.

Now, the user has passed away? It would be unfortunate, if true, but if the machine is downloading tasks, it is certainly capable (in theory)of crunching them, a human isn't needed. Maybe it's a problem due to using Arch? It's one step above compiling your own Linux OS.

(look at everyone with farms, hit the power button, change the online settings, and walk away 90% of the time).

.. his RAC is 0.09.

How is this possible to be above zero? - must have accidentally completed a task or 2.

The user even has a badge, apparently earned on that machine. /JeppeSN ;-)

Looks like this user isn't getting any SOB tasks.

Everyone else can crunch SOB tasks and avoid the chance of encountering this users activity.

There actually is a limit, but it's set very high. We don't want to stop people with very fast computers running very short tasks from getting work.

Other than causing a delay in wingman tasks completing, and thus delaying credit, is this causing any problems for *you*? Obviously this person's computer has a problem, but is it causing problems for other people?

They create the same problem for everyone. Just ban them. Maybe a message to them would be picked up by someone who can contact us to clarify the situation. If they *do* return & fix their machinea they can be reinstated.

I think that banning is too radical.
The user might not even be aware of the problem.
Maybe the server could stop sending tasks to such machine for some time and resume later, but stil watching for a good "performance".
But I guess this would require massive software changes on the server side. Probably not worth it.

Not software changes just manual intervention which can be labor intensive for the person doing it, you don't want to be wrong.

BOINC has always worked fine with this type of situation, in fact the software is built to accommodate this. Why mess with what is not broken? It is not hurting anyone. The work gets done, just takes a little longer. There is no rush in this science, so why does it matter if a couple of rogue systems are doing nothing more than making the server send out a few extra tasks? This stuff has been happening since the beginning of BOINC, and will continue on. So, let the servers and software do what it is supposed to, instead of what is in your mind? The admins, scientist, etc that run the project do not seem to care that this happens, for good reason. The software has it's own fail safe and it does it well.

[...] The work gets done, just takes a little longer. [...]

I agree with you, the system works well. In a sense, the work does not even take longer (but I know what you mean) because every other computer is crunching at 100% of what it would otherwise, so overall the same amount of work (for "science") is done per unit of time. /JeppeSN

The problem: boinc-nox misconfigured by default, installed on a headless server under Arch Linux
The solution: boinc package installed instead of boinc-nox

You are not dreaming: I am in touch with Mr wunk and fixing his rig with him ...
Sunrise in L.A. in 3 hours 33 minutes ...

God bless! 2022 will be a good year!
Mind you, the sunrise you speak of we have already used in Australia.

And Mr Wunk never noticed he had zero successful WUs? Or at least that his score didn't increase?

Nice to know it's finally solved... :D

I tried to pm him ages ago - no reply.
So Mr Wunk is alive and well? People were worried about that
Mr Wunk may actually get the computer running to actually compute?
I need to see that the computer is actually doing the thing - and I mean returning things completed.

Some short tasks were returned:
http://www.primegrid.com/results.php?hostid=1057098

The number of GFN 21, 22, Extreme tasks in progress has increased,
after we urged wunk to abort these tasks to validate the last challenge ?
or after the install of boinc instead of boinc-nox (old tasks were lost) ?

GFN 21 1738 | GFN 22 429 | GFN Extreme 418

A lot of short tasks should time out January 4, long tasks January 14 or later ... Wait and see ...

GFN 21 1738 | GFN 22 429 | GFN Extreme 418

At least, wunk's intentions are now clear !

A lot of short tasks should time out January 4, long tasks January 14 or later ...

There are some things properly returned.
It is still very untidy to be having all projects with tasks.
Baby steps. Maybe those tasks will disappear soon?

At some point I wish to know what was happening with Mr Wunk?

Has there been so much intent with no result like this?
Legendary.

Oh dear - some attention needs to be paid to PG.
Wunk could be a great verb (sorry, my English talky bad). My computers were totally wunked for a week. Or: You wunked your computers Or: I managed to dewunk my computer.

I haven't been on discord and yet I created a use of a word on it?
Well bugger me timbers!
I am working out if I can say that. It would primarily be down to what is acceptable at a G rating? Best I can work out is that context may be dependent on intention. As I changed a well known phrase, with another word, but it still means the same - it is ok. Phew.

Awesome news, thank you for your support.

A thousand thanks to Mr wunk for his new year's attention.

There are still two wild horses who could be contacted nicely ...

There is a nice trick to get around that - I didn't understand it. Something about information from an AP task.

They do have an account linked to an email. Unfortunately messages are by default not forwarded to this email address ... unless some divinity turns magically on this feature ?!

It was Mr wunk's case. Got in touch with him through his email found on the web.
Then he connected to primegrid and read my message, answered and just needed some tips.

Please ban this user/host. Set a counter on allowable tasks per day and reduce the number for failed tasks.

There actually is a limit, but it's set very high. We don't want to stop people with very fast computers running very short tasks from getting work.

Other than causing a delay in wingman tasks completing, and thus delaying credit, is this causing any problems for *you*? Obviously this person's computer has a problem, but is it causing problems for other people?


Complete a task successfully, +1 to limit so there is no issue for people completing tasks successfully. Fail then -1 from limit. Other projects have more than just a static limit.

As Michael already asked, what specifically is the damage they cause to the project? The only thing is a small additional load on the BOINC server.

I can see how it's irksome, but it doesn't slow down progression at all. Btw, if you want to get annoyed have a look at the oldest unfinished SoB WU, it's from last summer and it seems another user that doesn't finish tasks picked it up. ;)

That's actually an interesting one.

The third task was sent out in August, and that computer has been slowly chugging away at the task. It's currently 89% done, and lately has been doing at least 1% per day. If it keeps this up, it will finish in one to two weeks. This is despite having exceeded the deadline and having been timed out by the server.

In the meantime, a week ago the server sent out a replacement task, and so far that task has done nothing. It's likely that the third, expired, task at 89% will finish before the fourth "alive" tasks does.

This is, of course, LLR2, so at least there's no wingmen waiting, like in the good ol' days.

Computers have far more patience than do people. :)

No more wunked tasks ?!

I love how wunk has become a verb.
"You totally wunked your computer."
It is particularly favourable to me as it seems it has no judgment attached to it.
We all have dewunkifying software promising to dewunk.
Moral: If you run computers with no attention to outcome for a long time, your name may become a verb.

Mine is already a verb, or at least a homophone of one. (The “o” is silent.)

I am already panicking - homophone? Google I entrust to teach!
I'm back - that wasn't complicated. I was worried my cell phone wanted to be just at my place. (I was going to say a different joke about glitter, but we are living in unusual times, and I don't know how offensive that could be)

I have to say I don't getz it. (I feel like I barely passed an intelligence test)

If I understand what homophone means:
I have a really bad issue with affect and effect.
Sometimes accept and except.
And who the hell knows the difference between practice and practise?

The affect/effect one is the most difficult for me.
Even if I know that a lighting effect can affect someone - that isn't enough for me to understand completely right away. It takes a bit of work for me to use effect and affect correctly - and I will mostly never be sure I got them correct.

To put a positive spin on this, it is amazing how weird our brains/minds are. I used a term today that probably hasn't been heard much in psychiatry - bespoke. We have bespoke minds tailor made for us. It is just another layer of looking at this. No ultimate truth here.

Bespoke is a great, and underused term.

With regards to affect and effect, I also have trouble remembering how to use correctly. A while ago I gave up. I use the word "impact" instead. Something has an impact on something else.

To be a tiny bit on topic, the excessive length of time another user takes to complete a task or to miss a deadline has little impact on my enjoyment of crunching SOB tasks.

To be a tiny bit on topic,

Yes I did stray far - this made me laugh.
I can just cope with effect and affect because I create lighting effects, (or used to)
