I have just completed this Work Unit, after 2,366,625 secs (27.39 days) I get: "Completed, too late to validate" and zero credit :(
It ran 24/7 since the day I got it.

Edit:
Is it because one above had already been completed that I got no credit? Because I've now notice that so has this one http://numberfields.asu.edu/NumberFields//workunit.php?wuid=12348078 that I'm currently 27 days into crunching, shall I just abort it as it's already been completed? shame about my 27 days wasted on it however :(


No worries. I went ahead and granted you the canonical credit on both WUs. You can abort the one still running; it sounds like it should be close to finishing but no reason to waste the cpu cycles.

To answer your question... yes, someone returned the WU before you. It looks like it had originally timed out for them, the WU was reissued to you, and then they returned it after you had started it. When that happens, you won't get credit unless you return it within the grace period (which is hard to do with these really long WUs).


Thank you very much.

I have found another one http://numberfields.asu.edu/NumberFields/workunit.php?wuid=12404933 which someone else has already completed, I'm 2 weeks into this but if the grace period is 10 days after the expiry I should be OK.

I still have another 3 long ones, 2 at around 30 days, one at 40 days, so far no one else has completed them but I'll give you a shout if they do if that's OK.

The pattern on these WUs I've noticed is that they speed up at around 62-63%, once they've hit that percentage they using complete within 24hrs.

Daniel, I was one of the ones that aborted that WU. I don't mind running long work units, I've complete about 3 so far, the longest being 29 days and I have half a dozen still going including one currently at 31 days, but that, along with another I got, showed a progress of a fraction of a percent after several hours, so I aborted it. Richard maybe right about the estimated runtime being wrong but the progress was unlike any of the other long WUs I've had.

I have 5 of these still crunching after 13 days, they range from 35-56% progress, all expired 4 days ago and have since been sent to other people. I'm not sure whether I should contact the other people and tell them that I'm still crunching them, I don't want to waste anyone's time including my own if they're completed before me.
These are the WUs http://numberfields.asu.edu/NumberFields/results.php?userid=9411&offset=0&show_names=0&state=6&appid= I have noticed that one has been given to Richard in this thread.
