Tasks won't finish in time BOINC runs 98% of time, computation is enabled 99,9% of that

and since boinc refuses to load another task

anyone has a solution ?

How many other projects do you have in this boinc manager and in which state they are?

Seti on GPU and 2 UTs WWGrid and 2 cpus free

The strange thing is that every time it calculates an UT without problem but refuses to make a second UT

with the same configuration, nothing change :(

I have WUs that run at 100% and don't seem to finish - ever. I have a 16T task running over 10.5 hrs. @100% on 23 cores. Similar problem with a 4T WU. I don't know if this is standard behavior or not at the end of the computation. Would not like to lose this much compute time. When I look in Task Manager, there is no CPU time being taken for the Yafu task, but it's holding everything else from running.

Message 1307 - Posted: 1 Dec 2018, 10:46:48 UTC - in response to Message 1306.  

I worked with one task for 7 days and I canceled it finally. )))
https://yafu.myfirewall.org/yafu/result.php?resultid=3783335
I see on my other hosts that many jobs cannot be completed. They have a progress of 100% and load one processor core taking hostage the rest of the cores. IMHO if the WU is allegedly working for more than one day then it is very likely that it will not be able to complete this task should be terminated.

As I can see in the log this wu was still running. It was sent to a different user where it was completed.
At the end a WU usually runs only single core.
You might check the slot directory if the files there are still changing. I would say at least every 2 hours there will be something written into the files.
At the later stages of the wu run is also checkpointing used. The nfs.dat file is the checkpoint file.

Are you saying that if that file is still being written to, that the WU is still running normally?

Last night I had to abort a work unit (the first for me I think), as it had stopped doing anything.
This WU had been running for nearly 3 days, when I checked the task manager it showed it as being "Stopped" (both java and yafu were in this condition).

I suspended then restarted the work unit but it did the same thing and went back to "stopped".

It had been holding up 4 cores (of a 4 core machine) for 251,709 seconds but had only had 32,392 CPU seconds of work.
The Slot showed no activity.

I have a T8 task been running for almost 14 hours 45 minutes is check pointing the .DAT file is increasing in size. I noticed when I started my computer this morning according to the elapsed time in Boinc I had lost approximately 2 hours of running time. I am guessing this means that that processing time had to be redone to get past where I turned the computer off? I'm not sure at what frequency but I know the task is saving more often than every 2 hours.
I am aware that I can use hibernation however I am not keen on my computer turning on at night as it is in my room. As I reminds the checkpoint file size is 2.4 GB updated 6 minutes ago
TIA for any information

Task I was referring to in my previous post had a runtime of 16 hours 49 min 28 sec CPU time was exactly the same.

Hello,
There's a task running on my computer for 21d 13h 27m and counting. I was away for a fortnight and couldn't check the computer. Since I'm back, I have to suspend it from time to time to let other tasks finish. Now I'm wondering if the task is still doing anything...
WU 3765851, my computer is no. 37221.
The only file that's updating is graphics_status.xml. It shows now:
    <cpu_time>1850574.843750</cpu_time>
    <elapsed_time>1868369.453125</elapsed_time>

Then there is init_data.xml, last update June 25, showing:
<wu_cpu_time>21986.450000</wu_cpu_time>
<starting_elapsed_time>9444.520247</starting_elapsed_time>

All other files - except the EXE - are from June 8, the last line of factor.log being:
06/08/19 18:38:11 v1.34.5 @ ANTEC2018WIN7, nfs: commencing lattice sieving with 5 threads

Is this task still crunching or should I abort it, like some others did before and after me?

If you are able to I would let it run continuously until the end of 6 July this is 10 days after its deadline which was 27 June. After 10 days I believe you do not receive any credit for it. The choice is up to you

I'm number seven of this paket. Running endless since days. Last lines:

Aborting now, time limit reached. A lot of waste time.

Task still running, although I had to restart the VM twice. There's a checkpoint at 2h48 and 97.x% (and the task is again at over 1d21h of calculation).
But I have just seen that the wingman who got it last night already finished it, so I will abort mine.
