Stanford may have had server problems the week-end of April 3rd. I had a few units that would not submit until the 5th.
Some units are large, but work fast.. and are expected back within 24~36 hours, for full credit. Others may be small, but can take days to work.
The researchers at Stanford apply a credit score to each WU depending on its complexity and time line for submission. You probably know about the 'current projects' link from Stanford.. http://vspx27.stanford.edu/psummaryC.html .

I'd say that on the 10th, that you were "burning" units. If you check through your logs then you'll probably find that you were getting instant early unit ends...Another possibility is that you had a load of protomol units which can end at any time. Hmm, several other possibilities too, I'll check it out but it looks like a one day glitch of sorts.

EDIT, a quick review of the stats and you are the only one in our team with huge WU numbers. However, I found this team that is having massive spikes in WU numbers but not on the 10th

Probably a bunch of bad units going round, but I can't be sure, can you have a look at your log and see what project number it was?

Thanks

Had several units in the 100** series a bit over a week ago. Very unstable, worked only a few seconds and were terminated. They were in that 'protomol' class.

Thanks for the info, I guess that's the problem.
