Hi,
there is a batch of "ACT-R cognitive modeling environment using Clozure Common Lisp (Linux Only) v2.35 (sse2)" tasks being issued right now which has a deadline of only 7 hours, not the usual 5 days. Is this deliberate or by mistake?

(edit) I am just noticing from a 2015/ 2016 thread that past batches occasionally had similar short deadlines, but not intentionally.

Update: I am receiving tasks with 5 days deadline now. So, this looks like described in these posts from January 2016:

Hey guys,

Here is how the work unit deadlines work currently.



By default our work units will now have a 5-day turn around time.

However, the work units at either the very beginning, or at the end of a batch of work, will have a < 1-day turn around time.

< 1-day turn around at beginning of the batch of work:
This allows us to get the modeler important information regarding their model faster, just in case a problem arises, and they need to stop the job early.

< 1-day turn around at end of batch of work:
This allows the job that is almost done to finish quickly, and get initial results on new work earlier.

The bulk of the work units in the middle will stay at the 5-day turn around time, and hopefully this fixes the issues you guys are having.



This current job is at the beginning so that's why the work unit deadline times are short but it will not stay this way throughout the entire job.

Let me see what I can do to help fix this and I will get back to you guys.

Thanks for supporting us and happy crunching,

Brandon
