Message 53080 - Posted: 20 Nov 2014, 15:33:26 UTC

During the current drought at Main, I have allowed my i7 machine to work here. Then, of course, I started to keep an eye on its stats. I find that it still lists 101 error tasks from over a year ago. All of the random ones I looked at show at least two hosts (but not mine) validated and credit granted, but they also show WU canceled. Will these ever be purged so they don't show up an my account any more?

In general, Beta projects - like this one, and Albert for Einstein - run with database purging disabled. There are far fewer active users and hosts, so the databases are under far less strain than at production projects: and it is useful to developers and testers to be able to refer back to previous results and trends.

Last week, Claggy noticed and reported that there had been an unexpected change at Albert. Because all the data was still accessible on the server, I was able to load up about 3 months of data, and prove that is was a single sudden event, rather than a long-time drift - and thus hazard a guess at the cause. http://albertathome.org/content/project-server-code-update?page=7#comment-80453

Okay, I thought that might be the case. And I suppose Eric has had better things to do than figure out why these had so many errors.
