Hello everyone.
Like on sprint on Rake, it seems one user play false !
A user 'aninyme" at start of sprint have ceate a few hosts and have also take thousand of WU.
No any WU are returned. I can understand some "tactital bunkering" for his team.
On rakje, the thousand were cancelled after the end of SETIBZH/Sprint.

So far I know, the very honnest limitation was about 100WU/GPU and 300/CPU (not core) still was effectieve. Seem not more.

On one of my host (925907), who only can connect twice a day, I returened 227 WU, only 8 are validated. All other are waiting "wingman" the same host (1013686) with no any retirned results from the 1591 WU downloaded
The problem of this host is that PrimeGrid, detect a Ryzen 2990WX CPU with 64, yes sixty four GPU (nVidia GTX 1660Ti. running a strange Linux (20.04 LTS)

If this user for some reason can not connect or stay online , No any problem. Or use "bunkering", for tactical reasons, also OK.
But not stock WU and cancel AFTER end of comp├ętition.

Look the forum on Rake, at latest Sprint. ine team, hace accused a other team for false playing.

Conclusion : I suggest ti keep the previous limit about amount WU by CPU (or GPU)
Limitation in deadline seem for me not a good idea. My hosts runs 24/24. In my team, some runs only a few hours/day.

Best regards everyone, and for US, Brazil, citizen's, please stay at home, use a mask.
Everyone is free. But in the world sanitair situation, we all of us need to be very very..very...very.. carefull.

Good crunch everyone

PS english is not my native language and I am half blind !

Do not worry about it. If you do your WUs correctly, you will eventually get them validated and have your credit. No need to speculate about other hosts. For those interested, here are the tasks for host 1013686. If they are not processed by that host, they will eventually be sent to other users. You can see the deadlines. /JeppeSN

It's very strange behaviour but all the tasks eventually got dumped back after 4 days or so.

It used to me annoy me as well when people hoarded tasks (some even on virtual machines) and then have 0.00 RAC and never show up again.

But they don't hurt anyone, the WUs are resent eventually and that's it. The worst thing they do is generate some minor load on the server.

As long as the Server makes enough tasks for everyone else you are correct, I'm guessing the PG servers do that very well as they have NEVER not had a task I wanted to run NOR have I ever had a time when my cache wasn't full when I wanted it to be.
