Hello!

I would just like to point out the high rate of inconclusive results in the WU sent over the last few days. (Almost 10% for me)

Almost all of my inconclusives were paired with a Apple Darwin application which finished the task in a few seconds. The third task has not been sent yet (unsent).

Sorry if I missed it, but I'm just wondering if something can or is being done about this. I'm still building up inconclusive results with apple-darwin wingmen and some WUs are three days old without a third task being sent out.

I seem to recall this being talked about a while ago and at that time it looked like the 3rd sending would go to the BACK of the queue so with there currently being a lot of Sixtrack tasks available, it might be some time before these get reissued. It would seem sensible to get these out and returned sooner so as not to clog up the server. I don't know if there's a scheduler setting that would change the priority in favour of resends to put them to the FRONT of the queue rather than the back. My earliest inconclusives have been hanging around since 23rd.
All the ones I have looked at, similarly, have Darwin wingmen. One user on the Mac thread notes a rate of 50/50, valid versus inconclusive.

MEA CULPA; the MacOS version is incompatible with the Linux/Windows.
Version 4530 has a minor bug fix in the RIPPLE code but it gives different
results. Hope to consolidate in a week or so with new updated versions
everywhere. The current 4530 MacOS is withdrawn. Eric.

Hello,

I have some task with inconclusive results, all with computer 10377786 as wingman.
All task of this computer seems to get inconclusive results or error.
Some other computer like 10389447 or 10404779 also produce a lot of inconclusive results.

Thanks I'll try and look at this (I am on vacation?. I hope I can
remember how to block the machine concerned if necessary! :-(
Eric.

Hi,

This may help you to blacklist a specific host.

It was said in a previous thread.

Well I have had a first look and Host 10377786 is 100% OK.
I did find some problems with Host 10404779 which may be a
server problem (CERN side) or network. The failure rate is
roughly 50%. I am trying to watch this.

The overall error rate, all tasks, is below 1% which I think is
even below the average (I reckon around 2% is "normal").
Eric.

My inconclusive results are building again. Granted it's not a high percentage, but most are with wingman Computer 10451497. That host has returned >1700 inconclusives in the past few days.
