1) Message boards : Number crunching : 24-Hour Back-off? (Message 77997)
Posted 4 Mar 2015 by ritterm
Recently I\'ve found some of my hosts well into what looks like a 24-hour back-off period (project status is \"Deferred for: HH:MM:SS\"). I don\'t see any messages in the BOINC manager indicating that I\'ve exceeded some quota, that the host is returning too many errors, or anything like that. When I update the project, the host gets tasks and things continue right along as if there was no issue.

Has anybody else seen this?

I\'m seeing the same kind of thing. For example...

Task ID 648541941
Task ID 648602070

Also, some in the CASP9_bz batch...

Task ID 648731970
Task ID 648569850

[edit]I\'ve aborted all my CASP_** tasks[/edit]
3) Message boards : Number crunching : 3.43 is causing pop-ups (Message 74285)

It also seems to rob a CPU on multi-core hosts making it unavailable for use by other BOINC projects -- it just sits there idle. When I suspend Rosetta, the previously idle core picks up a WU from another project. I have seen this on two hosts that have 3.43 tasks. One is a hex-core AMD, the other a quad-core Intel; both are Win7-64.
