There is enough time to finish a WU. If you are over the deadline and the second result came not back and you report it first you will get credits for it. But if the second result came earlier you will get 0 credits.

What about the so called `Grace period`of 10 days ?
It`s not in use on this one;

This one looks correct:

Sent 6 Jul 2018, 17:28:16 UTC
Report deadline 16 Jul 2018, 17:28:16 UTC
Received 22 Jul 2018, 5:35:17 UTC

There is a chance to get it valid if the result is still in process and the second resent didnt get back.

I think four days is too short (or the WUs are too long)

I've had two WUs running on an i7 @ 3.6GHz (not a slow machine) that were rejected as taking too long. The host runs 24/7 and has all cores available to Boinc.

One task took 4.8 days and the other took 6.7 days.

http://srbase.my-firewall.org/sr5/results.php?hostid=3866&offset=0&show_names=0&state=5&appid=

I've also had eleven other tasks take over four days on the same host, luckily these got validated but I imagine some other cruncher got the resends and wasted their time trying to complete them in time.

I also won't be doing any more long tasks once the ones in progress are finished (if they do in time!)

The deadline for the very long tasks is 8 days, the rest 5 days. Sometimes the runtime view in the user account is wrong.

do you use multithreading on those tasks? because i can finish a long task in about 6-10 hours by using 10 cores simultaneously
