Check out

http://burp.boinc.dk//workunit.php?wuid=154425

It declares that there are \"too many total results\" even though there is only one submitted result (4 tagged as \"Didn\'t need\").

I have a ton of similar results all submitted on March 3rd. All seem to be from session 310 although I\'m far too lazy to check all 120+ zero credited wus from this period to see if they are all from the same session.

It\'s not PC specific as they all seem to have the same erroneous wus associated with them. Any idea what\'s going on?

Message 4873 - Posted: 6 Mar 2007, 6:44:46 UTC - in response to Message 4871.  

310 is aborted due its long rendering time and misleading me requirement (and resubmitted as 312)

But hey Janus, is the image validator/compare function implemented yet?

Due to an issue with the script that aborts sessions it actually aborted ALL workunits that were running at the time... before the error was discovered the assimilator had already closed several units which should have been given credit for, which is very unfortunate indeed. I\'m looking into extracting and granting the credit even though this will only affect your total and RAC credit but not show on the WU and host page.

Furthermore an issue with the file creation system in the datacentre caused several thousand workunits to appear as if they hadn\'t been completed at all in session 312 and 313. A script is currently attempting to fix that situation.

Janus:

I know you\'re working hard on fixing the issues so whatever you can do to resolve the credit issue is appreciated. However, at this time I think the priority should be getting session 310 cancelled correctly so other work can go through - I just tried downloading some wus again and they were still all 310...

That\'s what Alpha is for! Janus, I could care less about credits at the moment, as long as you can hammer out all the bugs before going \'public\', I think we owe you a big one.

on a related note, i am not getting 310s anymore, which is a good sign. before that, I also manually aborted several dozen 310 WUs, not sure if that did anything, though.
