Is Collatz broken?

Post by Jeffers » Wed Jan 01, 2020 2:55 pm

It looks like Collatz is broken (at least for me)
When I checked Boinc manager today I noticed that I've no GPU tasks running.
Looking at the task list I've got lots of Collatz with computation errors along with those that have completed successfully and are waiting to upload.
The status for the Collatz project says communication deferred for over 19 hours!

Ok, I've done a project update and that looks to have fixed it.
I was going to delete the post but I thought someone might be interested or also had issues......

Hi Jeff,

I think they did have problems earlier.

I also had a load of calculation errors so I switched to PrimeGrid. Checking the website was very slow, haven't tried it recently.

I also spotted some computation errors today. I am rolling off Collatz though, so have been running some tasks out and aborting others.
