Yep, yesterday's wu's ran great. Today I have no invalids except for re-sends but I still have occasional ones that exceed the time limit. They are easy to spot by batch numbers and even easier to abort. ;)
Some of the errors you see in my stat's go way back to Dec. Sloppy housekeeping. LOL
Cheers

Just a suggestion but you should seriously consider server aborting the work in process. Virtually all of them have failed to validate multiple times and are just wasting resources by re-sending them.

Thanks for the update!
I received new batches this morning but although they are now completing I am getting ~40% "invalids". I will keep it running.
Thanks again for keeping us informed.
Cheers

Just my opinion but the last batch was much better for me. I received over a 100 wu's with 11 errors and 4 I aborted because they would eventually error. It is annoying that some ran for 8 hours before the error but after all it is an alpha project and errors are expected. The credits suck!!! LOL

It would help if there was more communication from the project about what is going on or my fellow crunchers will continue to loose interest in the project.

Cheers

Dataman,

What is your host OS? I know vbox plays a lot nicer on my Linux systems than it does on my Windows systems. The MacOS version is somewhere in-between the two.

Specifically on the Windows systems, I believe it has to do with the games Windows plays with memory reservation and such.


Win10 & Ubuntu. Actually the last batches have run much better than the previous ones.

I like this project but I have not been running it primarily because of VBox. As I run a mix of projects, VBox does not "play well with others in the sandbox". It is terribly inefficient especially on the threadrippers. Even with 64GB memory wu's are often "waiting for memory". The only way I can get it to run consistently is to give the project an entire machine and I am not willing to do that. I would gladly support nanoHUB if it were to become more "cruncher friendly". Good luck.
