Work has gone quiet. ETA for new WU's?
2) Message boards : Number crunching : Task deadlines (Message 1219)

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.

Why? all the results lately seem to fail after a couple of days on a Windows PC?

If windows is going to fail, do not provide WU's for them. That is on your end.

I am using 7.6.22 and I have updated my PC OS and Video drivers, so I am current.

I am letting one of the 1.08 tasks continue to see if it completes as expected, but it still says 1 day and 7 hours to go after 8 hours of work. Not at all like the Linux boxes.

A lot of wasted hours of CPU time......I'm not sure I should trust this project. My work was listed as error but 2 Linux users completed in a lot shorter time frame. There should be a way to keep the OS's separate. .
