1) Message boards : Number crunching : Variable deadline (Message 3463)
Posted 5873 days ago by SAHJ@H
For the newly regenerated workunits (the ones that expire/end with computation error) the deadline will be shortened by a factor of 10. This should not cause problems with the new work scheduler and should help lessen server problems that we are seeing because of the results that take long to be returned.

What we see here is something like LHC@Home variable deadlines to get results when the project needs it and not when people decide to return them :)

Let me know if there are problems. The new deadline for quickly needed WUs would be about 17 hours. The initial deadline when the result is sent first time is still 7 days.


Hi, Rytis,
17 hours is definitively too close a deadline for me. I am contributing to several Boinc projects with 2 laptops and I am not sure to get access to the internet within this timeframe. 4 results of mine have already missed the deadline though my computer was at that time permanently connected to the network!
On the other hand I can understand that regenerated WU needs a faster answer. A reduction factor of 2 or so would better fit my connection interval, but what about your need? (By the way, I have 30 results awaiting validation for a month or so, because no new work have been issued after a client error of the other computer).
Cheers,
Sahj@h

If you wait a (couple of) day(s), the CPID will correct itself once BOINC has connected correctly to Prime Grid again.


Thanks, Jord. My cpid has been updated now.

Ooops, sorry. In fact I registered with a different e-mail address. I have corrected this now. Could you however change my cpid to the older one?

Many thanks,

Jean-Loup

Rytis,

Same issue with me, though I typed the right e-mail address when I registered. Could you please correct my cpid?

Thanks,

Jean-Loup
