Anyone else got a load of results completed that aren't being validated? Only three out of 43 results I returned from two hosts since 28/2 have been validated (and those were marked invalid). I think all of them have had the result returned from all the members of the initial replication.

There might be a reason for the invalids, as I was having some heat problems on one of the hosts at the time, but I don't know why the others haven't been through the validator.

I got five more results today; I'll wait to see if they validate when I send them back.

Got some!!! And the supply is holding out for a change. It's been almost an hour and there are still WUs available.

Muy Cool.

My new results seem to be validating. The old ones that aren't validating probably only amount to a couple of milli-credits each, so I'll not loose any sleep over them for that reason. I still don't understand why they haven't gone through though.

Same here. Some WUs from February have 5 returned results, but are still pending, while later WUs (today's for example) have validated fine.

Better that than the other way round, I suppose.

What are you going on about? The point of the thread is that all the results have been returned in every case, they just haven't been validated.

There's already enough threads about sharing out work; use one of those. (Then at least I don't have to start ignoring this one as well).

[I just had a look and this machine has picked up 141 WU this morning. I'm sure that won't meet with your approval, but I'm equally sure they'll all be done either today or tomorrow. Is that ok for you?]

I had a closer look at the WUs in question in my account. It may all just be an arithmetical rounding error. Here's an example:

Claimed credit: 0.00246718596683908
Credit granted : 0

And since BOINC doesn't show anything smaller than 0.01 of a credit, the results are erroneously shown as pending.

I'm not going to fuss over a WU so small the computer barely saw it go past.
:D

Pending results aren't checked by seeing which have 0 granted, it's some special fields on the database saying if they have been validated/assimilated already. And even if they were checked like that, it would take the complete number in the check, it's only rounded to two decimals for displaying the number in the page.

All the ones I'm talking about have "Validation state: Initial" as if they have never been through the validator. The same is true for the results of all the people who have contributed to those WU's.
