Topic 195924

I thought I'd seen pretty much the last of the BRP3 workunits with a canonical result on the server status page.

So I was surprised to find these waiting to run:
WU 103690260
WU 103690258

Both WUs created on 26 August, four copies sent out at the initial stage? An extra two copies of the second WU a day later?

The first WU has validated and a canonical result has been chosen - wouldn't that normally trigger a 'not needed' and abort for the spare copies (which are unstarted on my host)?

Not quite sure what to do for the best here. If you want an extra-special re-check because something interesting is going on, I'll queue-jump them right away. But if you just need an ordinary canonical result, there's no point in wasting electricity on the one you have already?

BRP3 (PMPS) data being re-crunched?

Hi Richard,

If it’s worth doing once, it’s worth doing again – that’s my motto.

Well, not really )

Hasn’t Seti been re-crunching the same data over and over
again for about the last 12 years ?

Best Regards,

Bill

Hi This is previously

Hi

This is previously unprocessed data from just two beams that somehow Were missed during the work distribution. In order to expedite the closing of the run, they are generated with a higher initial replication.

OK, if there's nothing

OK, if there's nothing special about them, I'll abort my copies (they've both got canonical results now) - plenty of new work to keep the electrons busy. But I thought BOINC was supposed to handle that automatically?

There are regular (if not yet

There are regular (if not yet continuous) supplies of the current BRP4 work for CUDA cards. This thread was just about a brief re-appearance of the older application.

I think I never had any BRP4

I think I never had any BRP4 work, only BRP3.

Binary Radio Pulsar Search (PMPS) is BRP3, Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo) is BRP4, all your Cuda work is Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo), the app remains the same across both BRP3 and BRP4, it just has a new version number,

From your last completed Cuda task:
