Also, mine are 12 core now, too! FTW
Since I switched from 12 down to 8, my average went up. That is x2 the logical cores.
After last nights run, I got eight done but, they all took 14 hours, well the MCM's took that long and the CEP took just over twelve. So, 14 hours for 7 MCM's is not that great. I switched it down to 6 cores, just now.
I will update tomorrow on how that goes. I suspect that a plus 50% is going to be the sweet spot, at least for me. Hell, I would be happy with running just ONE extra WU on this! Hopefully, I can run two extra without a huge slow down.
I've had "Show Hosts" checked in WCG, but nothing is showing up on free-dc. Anyone else having this issue?
FreeDC has been in and out with this feature over the past week or so- it was working when I checked my stats about 5 minutes ago....
Boincstats shows hosts.
Edit: I tried it out on Edison (WUs thing) but it did not do an increase to 3. I will leave things at 2c/2t and 4c/4t.
I wonder if the Ncpu's config would work on the servers? Hmmm...
I have no reason to believe it wouldn't. Worked on my Linux machines just fine.
I want to re-install Boinc on the 6180 SE rig. It will only run 95% CPU usage and requires a re-start to go 100%, but falls back to 95% within hours. Tired of babysitting it, so I will hopefully do this tonight.
How is this working out for you so far? My 4930k is still higher, but not 9k high. I am at 7k. I don't actually have time to set my other rigs up with this tonight so I am eager to hear everyone elses findings.
Changed it to 72 Ncpu's(1.5x) and I will keep an eye on the production.
EDIT: Temps are up a few degrees, so it looks like it utilizing every available cycle. Will see in the morning if it's still working.
WCG will be down, 21st!
Pretty flat for me so far- going to give it another day or two before considering moving anything else. I can say that I didn't lose any ppd from it.
I wonder if anyone will see this at WCG and think there are 12 core 8350's now. Or if it is on record that buck has the most cpu'd machine in all of WCG or something. If this really works, which it appears to be, how long this will take to catch on. Right now most likely have a little tpu trick up our sleeves for more ppd.
For me, if I wanted 6 wu's going on a 4 threaded cpu I would have to set ncpu to 6 if that helps.
Waiting for the rumor about AMD's new 18 core CPU....
I did set ncpus to 3 for 1 extra thread, but to no avail. Might try again later.
P.S.: I see what went awry. I had to wrap the <options></options> tags around it. Edison is on 3 threads/2cores now.
Well, I'm giving up on MCM. PPD seems to have gone up on my slow mobile Intel procs (~125-150% of FAAH), but has gone down on the FX 8350 (about 80% of FAAH). I think I'll try CEP2 again. It's not even occasionally good. Seems to be pretty universally bad.
Is there a program like RealTemp available for AMD processors? I am installing BOINC on my friends computer, that we got from @theonedub , and I would like to be able to monitor temps on it like RealTemp does.
I'm on teamviewer now and would like to get it on there ASAP!
It has its quirks, but I'm a fan of OpenHardwareMonitor. Seems to support damn near everything and it's open source!
As far as quirks... This guy is a complete noob w/ computers. I am not sure I want to go through any trouble shooting when he can't get it to work...
Also, does it have any warnings like RealTemp?
it has an uncanny resemblance to HWMonitor from http://cpuid.com
I will try this out since I am a bit leary installing anything BETA on a noobies computer!!
Darwin is now on 4c/6t
I was aware of this too. I haven't looked in to the reason why. I've just been a fan of the extra little features it seems to have.
Do you guys P4s are worth using ?
@Durvelle27, normally, no. Not at all. But during a challenge: ANYTHING helps
