This problem is showing up again. The WU pages shows a number of work units "in progress" that I don't actually have on my computer. When I look at the errors page it shows two tasks that have timed out.

I have also noticed that I have a fair number of WUs awaiting validation (50+) yet the server says that there are zero WUs awaiting validation.

I can only see from log that maybe the DB backup (with DB that is increasing over the years) takes more longer to finish and during this phase mysql delay incoming DB requests. So it is possible that some request goes into timeout and so statistics are not up to date.

I have to see if I can stop all boinc daemons, than takes backup, and then restart daemon, to see if this could be the solution.

During the server downtime of those days, I change the backup process and now it should not block the boinc DB usage.

Hello

I had 700 tasks that were uploaded last week but could not validate because of the server downtime, there were all waiting to be validated then yesterday boinc contacted the server and they were all rejected because they had passed the deadline !!

This is not nice.

Message 889 - Posted: 31 Oct 2019, 19:00:21 UTC - in response to Message 888.  

Unfortunately Boinc was to not be able to detect the downtime and compensate the deadline of that time.

I'm looking if I could compensate credits via SQL query on valid WU arrived after deadline, but I have to study the BOINC code carefully before apply that.

OK I understand, thanks for the answer.

Be careful indeed, I don't want to loose everything I already got :)
