Does the app checkpoint? With the really long runtimes, it's important to have.

Yes it does. And you are right, it's definitely important to have. Do you feel it's not checkpointing often enough?

Thanks! I just wasn't sure, and so I have never quit BOINC yet. I needed to do some system updates.

Yes, I think the checkpoints are too distant. At one of my newer hosts I need up to an hour to reach the next checkpoint.

It's not necessary to have a checkpoint every minute or so, but It would be fine to have one every 15 Minutes.

Ok. I can see how some of the longer running work units might need to checkpoint more often. I will get that implemented in the next several days.
Thanks!
