I\'ve got a work unit where the percentage reached 80% complete but is now going down rather than up.

Any ideas what I should do?

This is normal, caused by some rendering options/features... Don\'t remember which is the culprit, multipass rendering maybe?

This session uses mblur (11 passes) - I think that might be the cause; like percentage done is re-evaluated after each pass.

Looks interesting... :-)
How did you made that? Is there a special program with which such a record is possible?

That is from the file \"$BOINCDIR/slots/n/stderr.txt\". With a bash

cat stderr.txt | grep Progress | grep -v ProgressMonitor | sed -s \'s/Progress//g;s/\\/1//g\' > statsfile 


to become a statsfile like this:


0.113726 743.120000
0.113729 743.180000
0.113731 743.240000

0.113737 743.360000
0.113738 743.390000
0.113741 743.450000
0.113743 743.510000
0.113746 743.570000

0.113757 743.810000

Thanks for the how-to. :-)
Still a little noob under Linux, but I think I know how to use it. ;-)
Is that also usable for other projects?

It is only useable with the debug version of BURP\'s Glue (which prints out progress to stderr).

Thanks, I already feared that.
Too bad, would be really a nice tool for analyzing other projects...
