Hi all,

are the (results of) WU stored locally after they have been reported and validated?

I'm specifically looking for previously granted credit per WU. I noticed that the project site only stores the last 100 or so. Is there a way to get to the older ones?

I found the
 get_statistics(PROJECTS&)
function. How long is that data stored?

Thanks in advance,
Jef

No. The credit for an individual task is calculated and stored on the server, and not transmitted back to the client - only the totals and RAC for each project are transmitted back.

BOINC does maintain a log for every task run on the client, which includes both the CPU time and the elapsed time. The logs are kept indefinitely - I have some going back 10 years. The files are kept in the root of your BOINC data directory, and take the form "job_log_[project url]"

Project sites purge their databases by time, rather than by number of tasks. SETI purges after 24 hours, Einstein purges after 7 days, and so on.

Use an add-on such as SQL Setup for BoincSpy. Some of these add-ons are project specific.
