To all,

Just had another experience of having the same number WU complete, but received less points than posted on web site.
Example: Just today 2 of my rigs completed the p2094 WU. These WU's should equal 139 points. However, I did not get a total of 278. One WU was 139 the other WU was credited 105. Hmmm

This has happened one other time back in Feb as well with the p1809 WU's. These WU's were valued at 153. I finished 7 of them in total, but one of them I finished on Feb 27th only received 89 points vs 153. Hmmm

This leaves me short 98 points overall, not a real big deal, but... Just wondering if anyone else has noticed these anomalies?? Is there a way to communicate this back to the Stanford group??

Thanks in advance for any help, :-)

I think that if there's an "a" after the number then it will have a different point value.

I'm a graduate student, and I develop HPC codes in Fortran and Matlab to make the world better.

Many projects have a few different WU's they put out. ie. p2109_blah_blah_blah, or P2109_random_letters_here. Slight different, and worth a different amount of points.

I'll be on my new website: Robotics News

How do you find out how much a wu is worth?

Check your progress using FahMon.

Hi LBN,

Thanks! I'll keep looking at the different WU's for differences in their designation.

Take care, :-)

Hi busa,

Yes. According to the log file. All of my WU's have completed, except 1. That one did not receive any points nor was it up loaded to the Stanford site.

Take care, :-)

Hi Retrospekt,

You can use fahmon or check the Stanford site here:

http://fah-web.stanford.edu/psummary.html

This link is located on their home page - Stats/Project summary/ - in the right column look under "credit". These are the points awarded for each WU.

To my earlier question. I thought all WU's of the same number was awarded the same points. This may not be totally true. However, Do Not let this anomaly stop you from folding. The points, team competition, etc means little when compared to the "Big" picture of cancer research.

I hope this helped, :-)

Hi rippon,

Thanks! LBN stated the same thing. I didn't really watch the designations that closely. Maybe I will, maybe I won't in the future, but it helps explain a few things. I'll check my log file to see if any differences exist between the last 2 submitted WU's.

Take care, :-)

To all,

I found the problem:
From log file - Step 426107, time 852.214 (ps) LINCS WARNING
[06:02:17] relative constraint deviation after LINCS:
[06:02:17] max 0.000668 (between atoms 886 and 887) rms 0.000024
[06:02:17]
[06:02:17] Simulation instability has been encountered. The run has entered a
[06:02:17] state from which no further progress can be made.
[06:02:17] This may be the correct result of the simulation, however if you
[06:02:17] often see other project units terminating early like this
[06:02:17] too, you may wish to check the stability of your computer (issues
[06:02:17] such as high temperature, overclocking, etc.).
[06:02:17] Going to send back what have done.
[06:02:17] logfile size: 93731
[06:02:17] - Writing 94413 bytes of core data to disk...
[06:02:17] ... Done.

The WU ended early due to some detected problem. It was not my computer however. I'm glad I did receive some points for the effort.
Use this thread as a helpful guide to assist in troubleshooting.

My Thanks to all for posting here! :-)
