Message 31191 - Posted: 30 Jun 2017, 4:41:50 UTC

I'm running SixTrack on an XP machine and there are 9 tasks marked as "Validation inclusive" and 25 marked "Waiting for validation" dating back to 19 June. Some of those jobs have pretty long run times (8 hours or more -- unusual). What's going on? I'm going to suspend SixTrack work on this machine until I get an answer.

There was a newer SixTrack-validator implemented earlier this week, but that was not a success.
The previous version should have been restored, but have to validate a big backlog of workunits.
There are very short tasks, but I've also seen tasks with run times over 50,000 seconds.

A bit strange (I never noticed before), I do not see a SixTrack validator on the Server status page

I have 798 tasks on Inconclusive. Good to hear that it may be on the server side rather than on the client side. Though I still feel a need to do some damage control.

Current status of my tasks:

Alle (1569)
In Bearbeitung (181)
Überprüfung ausstehend (644)
Überprüfung ohne Ergebnis (515)
Gültig (224)
Ungültig (0)
Fehler (5)

That's a little bit disappointing. The machines are running and I don't know, whether there is a scientific benefit of the work or not.
