Yes, all new tasks error out in seconds! Needs sorting.

Server status says "collatz_sieve_work_generator" is Not running, which explains that there are zero tasks ready to send.


I've had no new tasks since 08:39 UTC today. Definitely a problem with work generator!

My results were sent to 'BOINCstats' this morning at 11:05 UTC Saturday and another batch has been sent about 19:15 UTC
so it looks like all is well here.

The invalids which I had were all tasks that were actually running when they were suddenly cancelled by the server.

One of the other factors with computation error work units is that as all the error work units are sent back, it appears they are dumped right into the the workstation queue to be downloaded. So comp error work units are getting recycled.


You're quite correct I've looked back at some of my 600 aborted units and they're being recycled over and over to other users!

I've had a couple of 0's turn up since my last but this seems like the way to go for now :)

I've noticed that if each work unit is received singly (not as a batch), they are okay,
but when a block of units arrive they are mostly failures. Check out...
C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\boinc.thesonntags.com_collatz and look for Size 0 KB
These will fail (I abort these in my BOINC manager) but all 1 KB size are fine.

Try, 'Snooze' Boinc before shut-down. It works for me.

I've noticed that also. My 89 Invalids have dropped to 59 but where has the credit of 30 x 36,666 avg per unit gone??
Not to me obviously. :-(

Indeed -- including new workunits -- An hour ago I did a test reset and then turned Collatz back on.

The workunit completed was treated as invalid.

So I am reverting to suspending Collatz for now pending updates to the process.

I have only lost about 15 million credits since I suspended yesterday and shifted to GPUGrid, Milkyway and Moo as my backups.


Me too, a day & half of work marked as invalid!! I'm suspending and going to play in some other yard too.

Just a thought for you. If you are using BOINC Stats, check that in 'My Projects', ensure that you do not have the 'ATTACH' box ticked,
or you will have hells own job of removing any projects.
