1) Message boards : Number crunching : Not getting any python work (Message 103014)

I have 32GB of memory. Two weeks ago I was getting tasks without a problem. Now I am not getting any. I doubt that a single task requires 48GB to run.

There was a lull due to lack of work, but python tasks are aplenty now...
Yet I still am not getting any python tasks. I tried aborting the 4.20 tasks, that didn't work. I know that I can process python tasks as I was doing so week or so ago.
3) Message boards : Number crunching : Lots of computer time, little credit (Message 102868)

It is a new host, and it can take a while for Credit to settle down (usually 10 or so Valid Tasks), but even so that's an exceptionally low amount of Credit.

Yes, it is a new host but all the rest of the task have been ball park consistent in the credits granted. And the typical task's cr/hr is what I have come to expect from this host. But this one task was granted only 1/100th of the credit expected.
(I am not worried about the runtime vs CPU time....I am pushing that computer pretty hard with other projects, so just look at the CPU time used.)

Your one task that gave you 3 credits only generated 16 models. That's pretty odd. I ran one task for 7hrs, generated 1 model and got only 107 credits.

I don't think the number of models makes that much of a difference, I have tasks running from 20 to 2000 structures all returning a typical 350+/- credits.
As to the two errors tasks, even they are producing the same cr/hr as my other tasks. It is just this one task that is so grossly off the expected cr/hr.

Task in question: https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/result.php?resultid=1431763806
So what was Rosetta doing with all that computer time allocated to it if not for crunching?

I know that if given a task and it takes longer than the prescribed time, it will just run longer. But if for whatever reason I am given a task that takes a lot less than the asked for 8 hours, will the app merely spin its wheels to take up the allotted time? If the app was actually crunching during that time why are the credits so low?
