Message 801 - Posted: 28 Jan 2008 | 22:52:54 UTC

I have a ps3 wu running at 45 hours now and its at 86% but shows time running increasing, and time left at over 5 hours and not decreasing. Is this wu dead and should be aborted, or do some wu\'s actually run this long? I\'ve even restarted boinc with the wu\'s still acting the same. I\'d hate to lose all the processing and abort the wu. Any ideas?

write \"top\" in terminal and see the CPU usage of the workunit (it should be around 130%).
WUs should not last longer than 24-26 hours. If you have some other process slowing the processor it will last much longer.

Here is a typical top output. I\'ve never see the processes go beyond 100% to near 130% are you said, and actually I have 2 ps3 running processes that have exceeded the time aloted to complete and both are running at over 2 days, show 2-7 hours to complete. I guess I wont get any credit for them anyhow will I, so I should abort them. How does grid project treat wu turned in later? no credit awarded even though I\'ve run them for over 2 days ? Can they look at the wu\'s and tell what wrong with them ?
