Agile Boincers from Switzerland... It looks like - entire computer cluster is involved. It does more job pro 1 day as my 40 hosts did in 6 years. That is really hard...

It's crazy, that's some computer power on line for the project.

The Agile Boincers are not as agile as they claim, as I have several PVs waiting as "no response" from them as wingmen.

Their computer/cluster or whatever their monster cruncher is may be dedicated to higher priority work that it must take care of first. BOINC might be something the Agile admin(s) allow only when there is nothing else for the machine to do. We've seen this type of situation before. Unfortunately when the machine has to switch over to their top priority work it sometimes doesn't get back to the BOINC tasks it has queued up until after the deadline expires. Would be nice if there was some way to automatically abort those tasks rather than just let them expire. Actually there is a way but the machine's admin(s) would have to script it. They might not want to do that. They might not know how. They might not even care. Of well, when a machine can crunch that many tasks you tend to kiss its feet rather than whine about the small stuff.
