Post:
My OONI Probe WU was at about 89% after 12 or so hours with 1 1/2 hours to go.
When I later checked it was now at 14+hours, 14% and 101 hours to go.
How does it work?

The OONI Probe work unit down loaded automatically to run next to my CNODE work unit, which is great as I don't have to hit update all the time to get it.
Why does PERF not work this way and download and run next to my CNODE work unit without me constantly hitting "Update" to try and get a PERF work unit?

Thanks
Conan


This work unit (version 1.02), reached 24 hours with 37 minutes to go and I think 80 or 90%.
When I checked later it had gotten to 34 hours with 10 hours to go and 76% done.
Now it is at 37 hours with 694 hours to go and just 5% done.

Certainly is jumping around a lot.

Since the downtime the new work units are doing what they were doing back in March.
They are running for hours. I have a CNODE that is at 22% after 55 minutes.
Also Windows PERF is running for 30 minutes or more, I have one at 99.996% after 27 minutes.
I managed to get a rare PERF for Linux to download and it is also running as long as the Windows PERF work units do.

You said you would think about doing a credit bonus to the users that had work units running for many hours back in March.
That did not happen, so can we get a double bonus this time?

Perhaps it would be a good idea to think about some credit compensation....


G'Day Rysiu
Just wondering if this is still on the 'to-do' list?

As stated by you on the 17/3/21 in this thread.

All CNODE work units are now generating an error code 255 and then failing. They fail after 1,500 seconds every time.

This only started today I think. At least they are not running for ever but they no longer work at all.

Thanks

That would be very nice of you, thank you for considering it.

A lot of hours have gone into no a lot really, even by leaving them run to over 100 hours they just self abort and you get nothing for it.

Yes.
After analysis, we found that the SBG incident also negatively impacted the iThena PERF app.

The issues in iThena CNODE are also there but they are not necessarily very visible to the user.


Well they are visible to this user, I aborted a previous CNODE work unit as stated below after 10 1/2 hours, the replacement work unit is currently running over 9 hours and is at 100% but still running with no end in sight.

The PERF work units now take over 1 hour to run, on Windows or Linux.

I have not returned any valid CNODE work for a day now.

Conan


My CNODE work unit has now passed 12 hours run time and my PERF work unit on the same Linux machine has passed 3 hours. Both are at 100% and have been for quite a while now.
I have my doubts about them finishing.

The Windows PERF work units do finish with much shorter run times than Linux.

Should I abort these work units?

Conan


The PERF finished about 3 hours 15 minutes and then downloaded another one (all wu's that I have had since all run over 3 hours but do finish), this is on Linux.

The CNODE is not going to finish and I am aborting this one as well after nearly 16 1/2 hours run time.

I will see what the next does.

Conan


After more than 18 hours I will also abort another CNODE, have not returned a valid one in 2 days now.
The PERFS are still taking 3 hours but finish and get validated for just 2 credits.

Again I will see how the next one runs.

I have a CNODE linux work unit that has been running for over 10 1/2 hours, it is at 22.5% and still has over 36 hours to go.
If it ends I hope to get a lot more than 2 credits for it. A few hundred would be more what it is worth.

My PERF work units have gone from 136 seconds to 2,400 seconds for the same 2.0 credits. That needs to change.

I decided to abort the work unit and hope the next one works better.

Post:
Is there a way to get the PERF tasks to download to Linux without having to hit "Update" every time I sit at the computer?
CNODE downloads automatically but PERF tasks don't download at all unless I hit "Update". Then they run until the CNODE finishes but wont download any more (at least they used to now it seems just the 1 PERF downloads finishes and no more download), that is of course if the any PERF work units download in the first place which, even if you wait more than 5 minutes before you try.
And yes the credit for a work unit taking 15 times longer (CNODE verses PERF) is on the weak side.

Thanks

@Conan: Are you planning to completely stop supporting the project? I think I will probably reduce the requirements for badges... :) These are only proposals :)


Rysiu, You don't have to worry I will continue to support the project.
I was only pointing out what I thought was an anomaly, which it seems is not out of place.
Your levels are probably fine and most people will be able to get them, it will just take me a little while, however is that not what getting a badge is all about, it is about earning the badge so that is what I must do, earn it.

Have a good day
The fun continues

Linux misses out, as Windows ...


No, on the contrary, Linux wins ;-)
1.We got a beta badge for low-profit tasks. I agree that this situation remained too long, much longer than the distribution of the first badges
2. PERF tasks (not to be identified with Windows) are much faster than the CNode, but their badge level is 4 times higher
3. For Linux, unlike Windows, both applications are available (when they are alive). And now only Linux hosts continue to earn badges


Thanks Sergey for a different point of view.

Congratulations on getting your Beta badge, we all did not receive a Beta badge, I did not get one.

Although I joined in Sept 2019 (1 day after you in fact), I didn't start running the project till early this year so missed out on the Beta badge even though I ran a lot of the low credit work units.

So no badge for me then, I will just be patient and chug away, I will get a badge eventually.

We continue onwards
Thanks

The badges are for "Total Credits", this is fine and very welcome.

I was wondering about the many thousands of work units that were done by all the Linux users and we only got 0.0000333 points per work unit. Doing 100,000 work units didn't even get you 1 full credit.
Window users get a faster application and have had 2 point work units since the start, Linux did not, and did not get 2 point work units till a long time after the Windows app had been running.

So I was wondering about that. Perhaps it was all down to development? Linux misses out, as Windows apps take 4 minutes and Linux takes 40 minutes.

Just throwing that out there as I will be taking a long time to get to the first badges of either application but congratulations to all badge winners.

Thanks for your hard work Rysiu it is much appreciated.
