These tasks definetely finish, give exorbitant credits as a compensation for the (unavoidably) long runtimes and are worth of processing, as they correspond to interesting but complex RNA families

DavidHoney wrote:It seems they will only complete if you never need to suspend BOINC or the project for at least some days or possibly more than a week. The moment you have to suspend the project, or suspend use of processor/GPU for running BOINC project tasks, or reboot the machine (such as installing a Windows update or installing/uninstalling an application, all the work for that RNA task is discarded. So on my machine where it is likely that such a suspension is required at least twice a week, the result is that none of those cmsearch XXL tasks will ever complete. Thanks to the pointer on where I can disable cmsearch XXL WUs from running - I've now done that.
This is a pity. The applications from other BOINC projects save their state on suspension so that they can resume without discarding all the work achieved on them to-date. This is the most user friendly design to which BOINC apps should aspire. After all, it's my machine and when I need to run my own resource intensive apps, I should be able to suspend BOINC so that resources are relinquished so that I can the applications.
