Are two day task deadlines now standard?

I suffer from regular connection problems but with the longer deadlines, returning tasks in time was not a problem. Deadlines this short will mean I have to leave the project :(

First of all, thanks for your opinion. This deadlines will be limited just this week. We are testing if we can use short deadlines without problems for the users. We are analyzing the network to test that.

In one week we will change the limit.

Best regards, Joel.

I know that this revives an old thread.

But I am observing that DENIS WU's are not letting other WU's start despite the other WU's Deadline Date being several days ahead of the DENIS WU.

If I went and suspended an individual processing DENIS WU, BIONC would not start the Other WU that has a closer dated deadline. I did this for 15 DENIS WU's and the PC only selected other DENIS WU's to start.
If I suspend the DENIS project, then the other project WU's do get to start.
I if I observe the tasks queue and see the Other projects WU's starting to crunch, as soon as I re-enable DENIS, it takes over the task list of 8 cores on my PC. Instantly.

Other projects do not work that way, They respect the 60 minute toggle window that is the default in BOINC.

I have aborted 72 tasks that had no time processing yet.

Please make your WU's respect the BOINC sharing rules. You get your 60 minutes and then get to the back of the line and wait your turn.

This is ALL managed by BOINC Manager, not any project. Even distribution of CPU time by BM is only achieved after all projects have been running on a computer for awhile. Adding a new project to a computer will make BM try to catch up the CPU time of the new project by only running it for awhile, which is exactly what you're describing. When I switch projects I often find that the old project's tasks will not run until right before the deadline. Sometimes in panic mode.
