Last week, I had a machine on 24/7, this week it is not. Problem is I now have a lot of units that will not complete before the deadline tomorrow.

Two questions;
1. Is it worth crunching these for the science ?
2. What will happen regarding credit for them if I crunch them ?

Cheers,

DT.

Yep, last week I had a lot of those Fast_Abinitio jobs that were completing in 10, 15 and 30 minutes or so. As I have a 4 day cache set, lots of the more recent Production_??????? jobs were downloaded then, which are finishing in anything from 2+ to 5+ hours now. Many will not finish before the deadline as the predicted finish must have been originally based on the faster jobs. (Still using Rosetta 4.81 at the moment).

What is the procedure with these jobs which wont make the deadline ? Should they be aborted so they can be sent out again ? Or should they be left to do their own thing ?

You can abort them.

would it be beneficial to introduce a purge function in BOINC for this?

Sounds reasonable to me...Purge worked great at FAD... <thumbsup>
