10:09 <StrayBytes> Hi, it seems that all my tasks' ETAs are off by a factor of 10 or so, across projects. Basically, tasks report to finish in 100 hours, but actually finish in 10 hours. Also the ETA in Boinc manager jumps by 10 seconds every second.

10:09 <StrayBytes> Is this going to affect scheduling adversely?

10:11 <desti_T2> maybe

10:11 <desti_T2> boincs scheduling is a mystery and no one really knows how it works :p

10:11 <StrayBytes> Isn;'t BOINC open-source?

10:12 <desti_T2> yes

10:12 <StrayBytes> Why is it a mystery if everything is known?

10:15 <desti_T2> you can still write code, that is difficult to understand

10:16 <StrayBytes> True.

10:16 <StrayBytes> Would bumping up the additional work buffer help?

10:17 <desti_T2> did you run out of work often?

10:18 <StrayBytes> Yeah, it seems to run out of work due to its misprediction.

10:19 <desti_T2> then try larger buffer

10:19 <StrayBytes> Though if I bump up the min and the max every task says "running at high priority". What does that really mean, given that the CPU priority isn't really higher?

10:21 <desti_T2> boinc will give that project more time slices, only relevant when running multiple projects

10:22 <StrayBytes> Ah, OK. Though only one project is running at the moment, as I removed all others to see if that could helkp the original problem.

14:48 <PovAddict> StrayBytes: BOINC is open source, feel free to look at the code and figure out how it works ;)

14:48 <StrayBytes> I'll try though my experience is more in Java.

14:51 <PovAddict> I was half joking;  just because the code is available doesn't mean it can be understood easily

15:00 <StrayBytes> I see/

15:00 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

15:01 <StrayBytes> Well, I'll see what I can do with the scheduler. Thanks.

18:33 <PovAddict> it's down

18:33 <PovAddict> http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/

18:37 <Switeck> ...And milkyway@home is still having issues as well, like not giving out CPU-based WUs.

18:41 <baryluk> thanks.

18:41 <baryluk> I have trouble accessing webpage as well.

18:42 *** Tamar has quit IRC

18:43 <baryluk> still have few spare WUs. but will finish in in about 2 hours.

18:44 <baryluk> finally accessed server status page. looks BRP4 work generator is disabled or not running.
