Projects Too Big To Handle?

Post by geokilla »

I just got assigned Project 18414 and it's saying it has an ETA of 4 days to complete with a TPF of 1 hour. I just completed Project 16999 where it took about 2 minutes to complete 1% according to the logs. Both use the same A8 core. There's no way I'm going to complete this project in time as I only run Folding when I'm on the computer.

How the hell did I get such a large project? My core temps are under 80C so I'm not throttling either.

Edit: Paused it and resumed. Now saying ETA of 1.15 days and TPF of 17 minutes.

If you client has never processed a WU from a particular project before, its initial estimates are based on the WU timeout. Once 2-3% has been completed the estimates will be more accurate. The estimates can also be off a bit right after restarting a WU after a pause.

a few things:-
1). wait until it has processed 2-3%, when you receive a work unit for a new project (one your system has not seen before) it defaults the ETA to the timeout, for project 18414 that is 4 days
2). these work unit normally take about 12 hours on my system. I'm running a 20 thread CPU slot.
3). the researchers have controls to set a minimum slot size (core/thread count) for the project to run on, I guess you must have met or exceeded that thread/core count
4). the two main factors in determining the size of a project are the protein atom count and the length of time being simulated
5). 18414 is far from the biggest work units available
