PPS Sieve Silver: Earned 100,000 credits (144,953)
Message 73707 - Posted: 23 Feb 2014 | 13:11:46 UTC

New user here.

I am transitioning from GPUGrid to Prime grid. The install went fine. My first task (sophie germain) ran fine. No new tasks were downloaded and started. My first task shows up in my account as "pending credit".

Any idea what is up?

Thanks.

YES...most projects send each unit to 2 different users to crunch, then compare the 2 results against each other, by computer of course, to make sure the result is a valid result. If you look at your unit here: http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=383404111 you can see at the top that the "minimum quorum" is 2. And at the bottom you can also see your unit was sent to both you and the other person on the 23rd of February. You returned yours after about a 36 minute run time but the other person has not returned theirs yet, so you are waiting until they return their un it before either of you get any credits. Now IF the other person misses the deadline of the 26th then the unit will be sent to someone else to crunch and you could be waiting even longer. This is a NORMAL process of crunching, pc's crash, things get messed up and sometimes it can take awhile for the credits to come in for a particular unit. In most cases within about 2 weeks they should even out and your credits should stabilize, more or less.

I get that. What I don't understand is why while I am waiting on the pending credit to be validated no new tasks are automatically running in Boinc.

There's no correlation between having pending credit and not getting new tasks.

I see you've got it working and have downloaded a bunch of GPU tasks. Great!

I should warn you that the Genefer tasks are quite long (they take about 20 hours on my GTX 460, and your GPU is about 5 or 6 times slower than mine), so those tasks will take the better part of a week to run. I would advise against trying to run the Genefer World Record tasks; a GT 620 will take about two months to run those tasks and the deadline is 21 days.

PPS Sieve Silver: Earned 100,000 credits (144,953)
Message 73715 - Posted: 23 Feb 2014 | 14:50:45 UTC

I have updated by preferences to only Sieve and discontinued any Genefer selections.

Before making these changes I had already downloaded one Genefer task. Boinc had its estimated length at 16 hours. How accurate are these estimates?

Should I abort this task or sit through it?

BOINC's estimates, especially with a new host, are notoriously terrible. It will actually take the better part of a week to run that task. You can let it run if you wish (the deadline is 19 days), or you can abort it if you would rather run the shorter PPS-Sieve tasks.
