It looks to me as if they are filling the work buffer faster than we can empty it at present - 21hrs ago there were 340,000 waiting & 40,000 in progress, now there are nearly 490,000 waiting & 50,000 in progress
(all numbers approx)

They are the large 1,000,000 turn work units. Likely they will be able to grow for a bit ... though I did re-shuffle priorites again ... :)

Seems to be a mix - my first one returned claimed about 0.5 cobblestones, (or maybe it was a long job ended early?

As it happend that box was on its second batch of WU before the last of my boxes got anything -- and at the time I was getting ready to go out for Saturday evening in the certainty that nothing would happen now till the mnorning...

But as you say, main feeling at the moment is :)

The number of current/maximal turns is given in the temporary file "fort.91"

hawkeye@maggie:~/BOINC/slots/0> cat fort.91
171000 1000000

So I guess mostly all WUs end early.

It looks like they are testing an edge again so we will likely see a lot of early endings. But, I also have a few that are running for hours, the longest I have in sight right now is 5 hours ... so, not to dispair ... :)

I believe that I had one machine that got about 20 in a row with crunch times < 1 min.

The run times I have been getting are all over the place. So, this must be testing an interesting boundary condition ...

We do seem to be chewing through them pretty fast though ...

It seems that 500K WUs will not last one week....

I miss the days with 2000/5000 participants. You knew 100K WUs
would last a month. The LHC staff is probably happier with
the troughput now :)

Well, this may just be the first chunk of them. We can hope not ... but, many times they would send a chunk, then, more, until all the main chunks were chunked. Then there would be some 'dribbles" as they cleaned up the missing ones ...

I having 50/50 short/long WU's - with my slowest computer needing 32hrs for 1,000,000 turn calculation.

But this lot of WUs wont take long - lots of people find this a worthwhile project to crunch on - me included!!!
