1) Message boards : Number crunching : Long running wu_Qsqrt421_DS1x5 units - how long to let them run? (Message 1630)

Post:
It has recently come to my attention that the Qsqrt421 cases suffer from the same problem that the Bounded app did a couple weeks ago. I am currently looking into a similar fix for these WUs.

The stderr for this WU looks particularly bad. I suspect it could take at least another 6 days to finish. I wont feel bad if you decide to kill it. Either way I will get you manual credit for the lost CPU cycles.

If anyone else has one of these bad WUs please report, either by message board or private message, so I can try and remove them from the system.

Sorry for the inconvenience!


Thanks/Ed

The second one is now at 775 hours, still progressing (says 50% now, up from 49% yesterday).

No happy returns from anyone yet.

Just got home from vacation and checked this WU again. It's at 1342 hours and 52%. Looks like it's been completed by Capital Avionics on 3/24. I assume that I should abort it?


Yes, you can abort that one. I'll give you credit for it when I get home later. Thanks!

Thanks Eric. Aborted at 1349 hours. Longest one I've seen so far.

I've been running that one too. On an i7-2600. For 1354 hours now. It's currently at 50.565%.

Sigh.

Wow! Mine's at 50.079%, 793 hours at the moment.

I have 2 of these WUs running at the moment. One at 271 hours and the other at 385 hours. Leave them run?

Someone has returned a result that was validated on the first of the two work units, so you might just as well abort it and crunch some work unit that has not yet been solved. The other one has not been solved yet, so you can continue on that one.

Thanks for catching that Jesse.

Ed - you can go ahead and abort that WU. I gave you the canonical credit for it. Thanks!

Thanks! The second one continues to run, now at 509 hours.
