A very minor issue here.

When a task has passed it's deadline, another copy is issued and the task that wasn't returned is marked "Redundant result". Shouldn't the status be "No reply" or something similar? I thought Redundant result means the workunit has reached quorum and that copy is no longer needed.

10 Jul 2009 18:19:48 UTC 17 Jul 2009 18:20:35 UTC Redundant result 0.00

A couple of examples:

both of those task show as canceled by server but you are correct as it should be no response; seeing as the report time is the dead time.

jack or ageless will take a look at this issue when one of them gets a chance.

thank you.

Excuse me, I had seen this thread this morning before I went off to my sports programme. Upon return I couldn't find it anymore. So thanks ZPM for telling me where it went. :-)

Now, with that said, I haven't a clue why those tasks were aborted by the server. There's nothing in the Db that I can find that does this. Although there is something weird.

In the past we sent out 6 tasks per workunit, even though we're set to only send out 5. Now we're sending out 4 tasks per workunit. The 4th one seems to be cancelled before we send out a 5th.

Um, anyone with more knowledge on the strange things the backend does, please let me know. :-)
