Project 7600, 19,0,53

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I've finally got my 2600k build all together now. I've ordered some faster ram, but aside from that... This WU came in, and was giving a rather large TPF in comparison to the previous two. I figured that it must be a large one and given the deadlines, the bonus would be exemplary. Well it just finished, and after three days... gave me a whopping 2162 points. What gives?

2600k @ 4.4, HT is on and CPU has been at 100% load the entire time
Ram at stock, CAS 9 1333 (I know it isn't the fastest, but it wasn't the culprit I swear...)
Everything else in the sig rig speaks for itself, and no other programs were running, nor was I folding on the GPU.

I'm going to raise hell about it on the folding forum, but I have to wait for the registration email to come through. Before I do I figure I'd post here and see if there was anything I could have done to improve this.

Yes I do, and as it is a 937 point unit, 2100+ points would indicate that the passkey is correct. Should show up on EOC on the next update.

I've pushed it through to the folding forum, and put it a bit more politely than my first reaction as it was posted here. It's waiting on a moderator to approve it, hopefully we can get some answers. I've googled it and apparently I'm not the only one having an issue with this WU giving long TPF's.

How many SMP WUs have you completed with the passkey you have?

Edit: I suppose since you received bonus points it's more than the 10 needed....

Yes, I've folded more than I can count smile.gif

I received this from the folding forum:

Hi FTBIG,

Thanks for the report - I'm sorry that you got stuck with a very large WU. Unfortunately, in the course of molecular simulation, sometimes things go wrong and the system can become unstable (in <0.1% of cases). This usually causes an immediate exit, but for the A4 core, it appears that sometimes the core proceeds if nothing has happened - just much more slowly than before. Unfortunately, we can't detect and stop those WUs once they're out, but can only see stuff is wrong when they come back to Stanford. I have been (automatically) shutting them down when I do see them come back, so at least we limit them as much as possible.

Hopefully the next WU you get is normal! Let us know if otherwise.

I offered a suggestion of allowing those that do get bad WU's but continue on with them to earn a bonus, but that post seems to have been ignored. Looks like I'm stuck with it... I guess the only saving grace here is that he said that since it is a bad WU, I could ditch it and start a new WU.
