Hi folks,

I am new to LHC@home, but have crunched several other projects.
One of my first tasks on LHC returned inconclusive:

http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/workunit.php?wuid=9409507

On other projects I have worked on one of the tasks will be marked as invalid if two other tasks are a match and the workunit is validated. Over here I see that the task remains inconclusive. Is there any reason for this (and is an inconclusive task something I should worry about) ?

Thanks,

Tom

I should go through, like other projects.

I'd worry if all your WU's come out like that otherwise, I'm sure your fine.

I strongly suspect it's left as inconclusive due to a bug on the server. It simply neglects to change the status from inconclusive to invalid. If that's the case then IMHO it's a rather harmless bug and not worth worrying about.

If you get lots of these then of course it means you're returning lots of invalids which is something to worry about.

if you check status of any previous inconclusive job you'll see third party testing it again.
For you its only one job, I had plenty and they are running out to zero
