Some of these units are extremely slow while others are insanely fast. If it takes much longer it will probably have to be switched to "best effort"-mode.

The workunit I have has been running for three days and counting, and it appears all of my wingmen are in the same boat--nothing returned yet.

hi,

sorry for the inconvenience, i've trouble estimating the parameters for volumetric renders because of the long render time..

you can abort it if it's too much trouble.

Switching this to best-effort mode. Credit at next Payday run.

About 7 days elapsed, and still counting... Still have high CPU utilization, though it's only using about 65 MB of memory. I'm OK letting it run until completion unless anyone sees a reason not to. Just want to make sure it's not doing an endless loop or anything like that.

hi,

most of the parts ended normally now (some of them ended recently).. I suppose the long rendering time is the result of the volumetric step which was too small 0.02 (the default value is 0.1) and the density calculation (at each step) use some math nodes and a texture.

Coming up on 10 days, and no wingmen have completed it either...

I'm giving it until tomorrow, then I think I'm going to abort.

Hi,
I'm working on task 10560604. It's been running for 4d 11h 57min and counting. I've seen that the corresponding WU (http://burp.renderfarming.net/workunit.php?wuid=3205475) already has been credited to 2 crunchers.
Is it worthwhile that I go on till the end (whenever that be) or should I abort the WU?

The WU finished at last!
Thanks for having credited it.
