Hello,

I have some older tasks that have been completed and are still waiting for validation while much newer tasks have already been completed and validated?

Is this normal.

As an example:

Workunit 3710769300 from 27 Oct 2019, 18:09:26 UTC - Completed, waiting for validation
Workunit 3717010188 from 30 Oct 2019, 11:31:18 UTC - Completed, waiting for validation
Workunit 3718983526 from 31 Oct 2019, 16:55:06 UTC - Completed, waiting for validation

I have newer tasks from November that have been completed already.

Is there anything I need to do, or will these eventually be validated?

This is running on a Raspberry Pi running BOINC and only the SETI project.

Thank you,

Luke

Validation is dependent on the other computer(s) the same work unit is sent to. Please see this thread on the same topic.

Hello,

I just noticed that one of my tasks today read: "Completed, validation inconclusive"

Since it is inconclusive, does that mean that the task will have to be reissued, or what happens to a task that is "inconclusive"?

Thanks for your help,

Luke

It will be sent to a third (or more) computer and this will repeat up to 10x until results agree. If they still don't at this point the work unit is marked as bad.

Hello Mr. Kevvy,

Thanks for the information, I really appreciate it and now understand the validation process just a little better now.

Best regards,

Luke
