strange Timing_service printout
I got a Timing printout at the end of the job with "Avg" greater than "Max", which does not look right.
TimeReport ---------- Time Summary ---[sec]----
TimeReport CPU = 618.437983 Real = 618.577552
TimeReport> Time report complete in 787.885 seconds

Timing service should be reviewed and tested for correct behavior under SLF5 and SLF6. There are rumors that a behavior problem was found and fixed by CMS: this should be verified.

- Status changed from Accepted to Resolved
- % Done changed from 0 to 100
The behavior you observed resulted from an incorrect calculation of the mean, which is particularly noticeable when a small number of events is processed. The correct calculation is now used for the average.
Fixed with 82b0f90a8eda2936cf18e9e450a6419ad58a39da.
