Yes, so? You do know how

Yes, so?

You do know how Credits are calculated, claimed and granted under any BOINC project, don't you?

If you don't...

Have you checked to see if there is a user who has taken a bunch of jobs but not returned any work, such as this:
http://einsteinathome.org/host/254029

This users has taken over 20 jobs & returned none as of (~15:00 UTC 24 Jan 2006):

http://einsteinathome.org/host/254029/tasks

This seems to be an increasing phenomenon; some users take many jobs & then do not return results causing our Pending amounts to rise, but no credit granted. Also, it seems that the scheduling program often groups the same users together, because I find I often have the same user assigned to me to form many quorums.

PS: I do not mean to pick on the user I have listed above, but he just happened to be one of many I get.

I'm not sure what you

I'm not sure what you consider to be "alot" of Pending credit, but I rather suspect that it's all relative. My own current Pending credit sits at roughly 6,400 credits but my RAC is also at roughly 3,600 - so only just less than 2 days worth. No complaints here - at a much faster rate of production, I expect to have a pile in pending.

BTW, my thanks to the E@H/BOINC project admins for keeping the project stocked with work so that I can continue to crunch! :)

Best way to handle that: Never ever check your pendings :-)

Yes, I meant our relative amounts. My point, or observation, was that there were users who download ('reserved') large blocks of work, relative to their output & many of them do not seem to finish most, and often any of their work. Thus, the quorum is not obtained until the time limit expires & a new cruncher can finish the job.
I noticed it recently when my rate dropped & I assumed it was due to a crash of the Einstein program on 1 of only 2 machines I have crunching. It wasn't & Einstein has never crashed, but it caused me to find out why there were no work units being completed.
I'm new to BOINC & Einsteain, so I was wondering if it is a flaw of the assigner program or is the user's computer flailing away requesting more work & yet never finishing it?

Here are some examples & users I frequently seem to get assigned with to a quorum:

mark: how're you getting such high levels of RAC/comp? I've got an dualcore athlon @2.4gig but am only getting ~1/3rd the RAC of your opteron system.
