1) Message boards : Number crunching : Unable to upload tasks for days now (Message 1015)
Posted 7 Jun 2017 by justsomeguy
Looking at my task list, it's not clear whether they were just deleted or uploaded. I'll check again later as it may not have updated, yet.

It's not uncommon for a task to upload the data but remain in the tasks list. I've seen this in a few projects.
You can try doing a suspend/resume of the project, sometimes that will jump start it. Otherwise, you may have
to reset the project - This method will, however, delete all files and tasks for the project and download new ones.
So, use the reset as a last resort.

Personally, I've had to do this for Seti once or twice over the years.

Good Luck!
2) Message boards : Number crunching : Dealines in Boinc showing incorrect date/time (Message 1014)

Started doing some looking at the dead lines, they seemed to be very short and once they were long past
I was aborting the wu. No sense in turning in a wu 3 days after the deadline.
I have found, for example, the site info for a particular job:
Name yafu_ali_264384_L137_C128_1496733308_81_0
Workunit 923876 Created: 6 Jun 2017, 7:15:53 UTC Sent: 7 Jun 2017, 10:43:44 UTC
Report deadline: 19 Jun 2017, 10:43:44 UTC

However, Boinc (which doesn't let me copy and paste the details :( ) shows the
Report Deadline: Fri 09 Jun 2017 06:43:44 EDT

While this has been frustrating since I believed I was putting in a lot of time on yafu wu's and not being
properly credited, I will in the future let the wu's complete anyway rather than aborting.

Just thought people might like to know.

If it helps, I've been seeing where the estimated run time and actual run times are vastly different. 4 hour est for 8 CPU taking 25 hours.
I'm, also, also seeing that the deadlines are too short. 4 hour wu from yesterday to complete in 4 hours due this morning at 4 am has been
running for 11.5 hour, 2.6 hours to go, but already past the deadline.

Possible to extend deadlines a day or two?
