your link for rss feeds is down and has been for quite some time... I posted this a couple of months ago, but apparently it was deleted or moved...

it would certainly help to get out the word that you have work flowing again...

OCDistributed... A team and forum for those who like computers and distributed computing projects.

We are a very small team of dedicated DC'ers... though small as we are, we pack quite a DC punch...

but still small enough that YOU can make a difference...

1fast6: Haven't you read that the projects big idea for the moment is to NOT release work all the time. Is it any sense to waste computer time for meaningless crunching?


I guess it depends on your definition of meaningless crunching... all I know is I could have done SOMETHING to contribute this past week... ok, so how about, continue to release workunits that remain in "active status", until the results are validated...


its painful to watch the servers wait for a timeout for less than 30 workunits to be returned...


do we really know that the servers are waiting for stragglers?

Or, could they be waiting for their own analysis to complete in order to build the next work units based on the work completed.

[/quote]

heck,I dunno if they're stragglers, but the server status has looked pretty much like this all weekend...
Server Status

Up, out of work
22 workunits in progress
40 concurrent connections


I'm just assuming there a just a few workunits hung up in limbo somewhere, just waiting for the third submission to validate the results... but maybe I'm wrong...

well, I joined the project over a week ago, just to watch all of my machines sit idle... very frustrating...

I wonder if the admins would consider setting it up to continuously release work, and the first 3 that are returned that validate get full credit(I assume this project uses a triple validate for credit system) .. the stragglers get less (or is that a boinc controlled issue)... it would seem that would get them the results they need quicker and give us all something to do, while rewarding those who get the work in quickest (and not rewarding those who hoard work)...

its painful to watch the servers wait for a timeout for less than 30 workunits to be returned...
