Estimated finish time error


esz1080

Question

Hi,

 

I am wondering if someone encounter this issue:

 

I configure 2 imaging sequences for a session. eg, I need to do 20x5s and another one of 20x180s. The estimated finishing time should be 1 hour + ~2 or 3 mins later. However, the estimated time when this session will end 5mins later. The time only gets adjusted when it is running, ie, pushing the finishing time further and further.

 

It is not a hindering issue per se, but just wondering if it should have a more reasonable value.

 

I am running BYEOS 3.1.5

 

Thanks,

 

Edmond

The finish time is an estimate and because the download time it 100% dependent on your computer/usb speed it is difficult to compute accurately.  Add on top of this dither time and things get messy.

 

When a plan start a default of 30 seconds is added to the estimate time per image to allow for download time, etc.  That time gets adjusted after each image and the average is recalculated and the estimate finish is adjusted.

 

Hope this help.

But my point is, if I have a single sequence, the estimated finish time is usually correct.  It seems that if I have 2 or more sequence, the estimated time is very far off. Here, 20x5s plus 20x180s should not give me something less than 10min, rt ? May be the way of calculation should use what's from the session instead of averaging ?
