    Just a couple of questions -

    Does changing your Device Profiles on the WCG web page over ride any settings that you have set on your machine locally or do you need to change them in Boinc Manager preferences.

    Is there any app like FahMon (which is for Folding@home) to monitor each machine's progress locally over my home network.

    Dunno what's up Fit. Try uninstalling and reinstalling and make sure you have it properly configured in Preferences (100% CPU, all cores etc)

    I'm assuming "one-PC" is the machine name we're talking about? Good catch on the clock.
    I run all my stuff full bore, big energy hog mode. :laugh: All the speed step and processor features are turned off.

    Still looking at the rest of the stuff you posted. You might try just running a known project like HFCC. That way we could eliminate any funnies caused by project. Rice, energy, HPF2 w/ Vista, and recently HCC, have all had issues.

    Also, you could give us a screenie of "My Statistics > Device Statistics" click on the offending machine to give us it's daily score history.

    Is the offending machine throwing errors, under "results status" at WCG. Sorry if this was asked before...:p

    Here's my Farm-02, the machine I threw on the new account. It's still ramping up.

    This can be tricky...If you make a change on the WCG site, save it, then hit "update" on your machine, it will pick up the WCG settings.

    If you go into local settings and change that, it will use those. I'm not sure if that lasts or not, I have not played with it too much.

    I make all my changes on the WCG profile, and call it good. I know there was a time when the local pref part of the BOINC client was kind of screwy, I suppose that was fixed, but I still don't use it.

    Anyone else have more to add here?


    You bet there is. It's called "BoincView" The original author seems to have fallen off the planet, so there is no more development going on that I'm aware of. In fact, trying to find downloads of it is getting harder. There is one here, from someone's personal website. Say thanks to him when you get it.... Perhaps this download could be hosted on this site too?

    I run this on my main farm workbench machine and monitor all the machines on my network.

    Here's a setup wiki.

    Ahh, I just caught that you were running Win 7. I have not tried that yet. By v64, you mean Vista 64 right? That's what I run across the farm.

    Thanks for the links Bob....I dont see any contact details to thank the host, but will grab it anyway and keep a copy for anyone else looking for it.

    Just took a quick look at the install, seem a bit complicated but will read it better later ..after the football :laugh:...and give it a try.

    No real way to tell from that page. The "my statistics>device statistics" on your WCG account page is where you should look. Click on one of the computers listed and it will give you the daily production of that machine. You can see how it's building score and what it's rough daily average looks like. Remember that this takes some time for the numbers to settle in. The quorum system causes this. There are faster and slower machines that are your quorum partners. You have to wait for them to settle in on their score too.

    If you posted your daily average for a given machine, list it's specs, we might be able to tell you if it looks to be in the ballpark for that type of machine. Kentsfield or Penryn quads I know well. I run lots of those. The other machines i7, etc, we'll have to see if others are getting similar numbers.

    Regards,
    Bob

    The answer is yes, but not on WCG, which is the focus of this team and thread. Right now, WCG is CPU crunching only. WCG may get GPU crunching at some time, but not for now. So, continue to crunch what you have. :rockout:

    Folding is another team on the forum, with their own forum section.

    I do CUDA crunching on GPUs for GPUGrid, which is another thing totally different from WCG. There is no GPUGrid team for TPU that I am aware of yet...

    Ahh, I stand corrected. There is a TPU team. @fits, :toast: Didn't think it would take long for you to make one.:)

    Well Mr H, crunch away on it. If you have a 9000 or 200 series card it will do well there.
