Does anybody know anything about this Project & how to get the Wu's to actually run ???

I downloaded a few to a 32-Bit System I set up expressly to run the Project a little but as far as I can tell the Wu are not running. The Task Manager doesn't show any activity even though the BOINC Manager says their running.

The Wu's should only take a few Minutes to run 5-6 Minutes at the most & I've let them run for 30 Minutes with out them Finishing if they indeed are running like the BOINIC Manager says they are.

Do you have to run a certain BOINC Client to get the Wu's to run or what ???

The tasks do run to completion, but they take about 10 times the amount of wall clock time. I have run 3 of them with each taking approximately 43 minutes of wall clock time and then only reporting 4 minutes of CPU time.

If the project would mark their tasks as non-cpu-intensive, it would really help as right now it ties up a core even though I have not seen it use more than 12% CPU. It is disk intensive with thousands of reads/writes ranging from 1k to 10k in size.

Your Right, the Wu took 1800 Seconds to do, using a Core the whole time & then it reported it as 210 Seconds to do and Awarded it 1.38 Credits ... 0_o
