I am not getting any errors but what is happening since the bew year is I am getting WU that should take around 3 hours running for 120 jours or more if i dont catch it and squash it.

I have a bunch of boincers diff types/ diff op systems/ diff boinc versions and they are all acting up this way.

Anyone else having this problem?

120 hours!? Are you sure you are not looking at elapsed (wall clock) time rather than cpu time? At some point BOINC manager began displaying wall clock time in addition to cpu time and I think in some configurations of the display only elapsed time is visible.

Snags



nope, actual cpu time

most of the time i just abort them but I found if i suspend the WU then resume it it starts running normal.

I have watched some of the ones that have stalled and the progess is .001% every few minutes on a C2Q machine. at the same time the other WU on that machine are progressing at a normal rate.

WOW some of your machines have many, many day caches on them! Anyway do you have the setting checked to leave units in memory when swapping? It is under Your Account, Computing Preferences and is in the top section and says
\"Leave applications in memory while suspended?
(suspended applications will consume swap space if \'yes\')\"

If you have it set to No then change it to Yes and see if the problems clear up.


I\'ll check that out, Thanks
the weird thing is before the rosetta servers went down over the holidays they all worked fine, the problem started after the rosetta servers came back online.
