I am running a simulation and I absolutely need it to run for 8000 iterations before writing fields to the disk and stopping. However, it always run for a different amount of iterations, 2099, 1884, 1853 ... My controlDict file is:

startFrom       latestTime;

// stopAt          endTime;
stopAt          nextWrite;
// stopAt            writeNow;

endTime            875;

deltaT          0.01;

writeControl    timeStep;

writeInterval   8000;

purgeWrite      0;

writeFormat     ascii;

writePrecision  6;

writeCompression compressed;

timeFormat      general;

timePrecision   6;

runTimeModifiable yes;
This problem is so weird, I can't find what has to be fixed.

Found the error. I moved the time directories around, therefore the time index did not correspond with the directories number., and all worked logically when the time indexes were considered.
