Message 26503 - Posted: 19 May 2014, 20:07:05 UTC

Getting a lot of work done, but out of 400,000 WUs over the last seven days
still have about 8000 errors (2% and decreasing I think). The main problem
is EXIT_TIME_LIMIT_EXCEEDED but also "Can't create process". A side effect is
a mess up with credits. I have increased the fpops bound to help, I hope, and
today "reset credit statistics". Please be patient about credits and I shall see
what happens and if we can compensate somehow.
Unfortunately today I discovered a result difference, only one, but I need to
do more checking. I see no invalid results so the former Linux/Windoes
discrepancy is largely resolved. My priority is the integrity of the results
and I may have to spend some days pinning down the result difference,
checking various ifort versions, and doing more checks and tests.
We have a macOS executable under test.
Thank you for your patience, understanding and support. Eric.
(P.S. Getting correct identical results on any PC from a Pentium 3
to the latest, with a multitude of versions of Linux, Windows and macOS
is not easy! I can publish only when the LHC@home service is > 99%.
Afterwards GPU, Android, and 10 million turns)

I have seriously updated the max runtime to try and avoid
problems with this limit. Looking at your machines should
finish within 12 hours......don't ask about credit! :=) Eric.

I am very proud of being (almost) all inclusive :-)
Every bit helps; the power of LHC@home comes
from the large number of volunteers and hosts.
I even have a Pentium 3 in my office which I am not
allowed to connect to the CERN network but which I
can use for testing. I suppose Pentium3 and Windows XP
will disappear one day but not yet! Eric.
