Hi!

The problem was solved, now the validator works and the flow of WUs is also working ok.

Best regards, Joel.


Thanks for that, and thanks for the update.

22) Message boards : News : New v1.04 DENIS Application (Message 267)
Posted 4 Jun 2015 by Profile Conan
Post:
Now you have the new application out will there be a correction for all the 64 Bit work units that passed through the 32 Bit computers and gave such low run times when they should not have run at all?

Were these work units faulty? Or did you get valid results from them?

If they were faulty are they going to be reissued to be re-run and re-validated?

And what happens to all credit that has been granted (there is a lot of it, for example one 2 core host has over 1,900,000 points) for these hosts that ran the wrong software version and gave what appeared to be incorrect results?

I suppose we will have to wait to see if the new software version has actually fixed the issue.

It looks like there is another very fast 2 core host Host 2617
Between 6 and 40 seconds per work unit.

A couple more:

http://denis.usj.es/denisathome/show_host_detail.php?hostid=2408

http://denis.usj.es/denisathome/show_host_detail.php?hostid=3113


All so far appear to be 2 core Intel CPU's (Pentium (R) and (D) and a Core 2 Duo), plus they are 32 Bit.
Unknown if that is anything to go by.
They don't get much when paired together, but they get through thousands of work units.

Conan


Yep, we are trying to minimize the number of operations that can do those hosts. At the moment, the faulty host that we have found have a limit of 100 operations per day.

The main problem is that they are getting v1.03 version.

Regards, Joel.


Yes, interesting, as they are not 64 Bit but 32 Bit so they should be failing the work units not processing them.

how this computer gets credits ?

http://denis.usj.es/denisathome/results.php?hostid=1867&offset=0&show_names=0&state=4&appid=

run time 14 sec, 20 credits ? o_o



We are trying to isolate those result and see what happen. It may be a bug in x86 windows version of the app. We will also check the validator.

Thanks for the info, we will try to solve it as fast as we can.

Regards, Joel.

Looks like you've got another one ... and it's not fixed in V1.03
http://denis.usj.es/denisathome/results.php?hostid=1389&offset=0&show_names=0&state=4&appid=


I am just curious as to how the WUs get validated, runs for 2 seconds but gets full points, is the returned result correct? Or is it really a validator problem? This one host has over 40,000 valid results, 8,000 pending, a RAC of over 60,000 and only a few errors.
That one host makes my 4 look very poorly, even if I am not running just DENIS but a mix of projects.

Conan


Well I hope you fix something up, as this 2 core Pentium D processor has now increased from 765,000 points to over 1,200,000 in one day.

With the RAC going up from 60,000 to over 96,000 and processed results have moved from 48,000 to 79,000.

A very impressive processor taking less than 3 seconds per work unit.

It is also bringing down my credit due to the low claims this Host makes, so when I am paired with it I get lower credit.
