I had succesfull python tasks too running about 6 - 8 hours (target runtime 8 h). Now the first 2day+ tasks have exceeded their deadline. Running only 3 of them concurrently for the last 3 hours didn't speed them up.

I aborted one of them. Here is the result:

I already had an app_config for setting a general task limit for Rosetta with <project_max_concurrent>....

Adding the limitation for the python tasks obviously confused the BOINC manager. It started requesting (and getting) a lot of additional tasks. The amount of tasks being ready for execution now easily exceeds my limit of 0.4 days. Did it on two out of three machines. Those two machines were flooded with new tasks. The third machine hasn't VM installed, so there was no need for changing app_config an it didn't get too much tasks.

My Threadripper is running some Rosetta python projects 1.02 (vbox 64):

The work units are now running for 2 days and 6 hours. Progress is 99.8 %, and further progress is advancing extremely slow.

Is there any chance of getting them done succesfully. Deadline is getting closer (7 hours left)...

I agree, a message from the admins would have been a good thing. That would have probably prevented dozens of crunchers having doubts about the own hardware and software setup.

Let's assume they are so busy to to solve the problem, there is no time to inform the users.

Meanwhile I switched to WCG Cancer markers, too. Obviously it seems not only to me to be the second best for unemployed cpu cores :-)

Yeah, me too, so it seems to be a general problem. There are People who reported the same in the general technical issues thread.

So there is no pProblem with your and my machine. Perhaps proteine research is finally done :-)
