Number crunching :
Double work due to task recieved too late
Posted 27 Apr 2020 by Xavier Wallece
I noticed that I every 3 to 4 days the rosetta queue doubles in size.
This is probebly due to people that send in there results to late.
I get tasks that have allready been finished by someone else.
Send 24 Apr 2020, 3:50:59 UTC should be returned 27 Apr 2020 3:50:59. Yet it is not and I got the task at 27 Apr 2020, 3:52:32 UTC.
At 27 Apr 2020, 11:11:46 UTC the result is returned and I am still crunching the numbers.
Would it be posible to put the 'not returned in time' tasks at the back on the queue. This way everyone processes new tasks and eventualy we will get to the tasks that have expired and give other people more time to send in there results.
This way we do not do double work.
