Hello everyone,

I've got an issue for a few days now. I run only ATLAS tasks, but BOINC doesn't send my last ended tasks. Here's the message from Boinc :

Requête au planificateur en attente, Demandé par le projet, Communication différée 02:06:24


Could anyone help ??

Thank you in advance

Hello everyone,

So far, with my familial PC (intel i5, 4 cores, 16 Go RAM), I've been crunching weeks of diffrent tasks for the ATLAS experiment. I just recently discovered how little was my contribution when I read, in the "graphics" section of the ATLAS tasks :
"So far you have simulated 15236 particle collisions, thank you !"


Knowing that CERN makes about 600 millions particle collisions every seconds which are then filtered in many ways. The Grid then registers and process only 1 out of 1 million of those collisions (I hope I'm write until now).

So my weeks of PC struggling just processed 25 seconds of ATLAS' run

That's quite mind blowing ! I'd love to know what datas exactly result from these processes and make them so long to calculate. Could someone give some details ??

Done that but my Virtual boxe is completely empty, there's no virtual machine on the left of the VBOX window, so nothing to erase.

Do you know how to add a machine ? because when I launch BOINC and keep watching on VBOX, there's no "new" virtual machine popping up, and I guess that's not normal

Nice day

Thanks for your response. For Months the Atlas and Theory were both working perfectly well. Indeed the most of the last tasks are from Atlas, but the last theory ones were failing too.

I have no idea why everything is failing. I wonder if it's linked Virtual box which generates the problem

Hello to everyone,

I am wondering if it is normal that all of the tasks that I've been running for weeks now never goes up to 100% in Boinc Manager. Most of the time the tasks go up to around 30% and then disappear and are replaced by new ones.

Nevertheless I get Credits for them and in my profile we can see completed tasks.

Just wondering and hoping that nothing goes wrong.

Thank you in advance

Nice day.
