It's in Chinese?
That is definitely weird.
I had such things too. Expiring 1977 and such... had no effect at all.
That's what I figured...but weird nonetheless
It's in Traditional Chinese
I'm from Taiwan
then never mind
Taiwanese people living in South Africa... and I thought that black chinese dude I saw in a hotel once was weird
I had to move
I wish I stayed in Taiwan though
more Technology and better education
EDIT: not that I hate SA, but I've never been back since I came(in 2001)
Server is running eight tasks stimutaneously 24/7.
My Core i7 will do about 16 more in the next 24 hours and then no more until Thursday/Friday. If the Mugen-2 fits the case I ordered and the temps are finally under control, my Core i7 will be computing eight tasks simultaneously about 14 hours a day every day (I turn it off when I'm asleep).
I don't plan on putting it on any others (at least in the next several months). The other computers I have are substantially weaker on processing power than those two anyway.
Click where my red arrow points to....not only will it show you the results you sent back but whether or not they are pending validation, valid or error.
I reduced my OC cuz I was getting 40% errors! :shadedshu
Heat Salutes to ALL.
I'm new over here so, some stupid questions:
1. My CPU usage is up and down every second
2. What should I get (PPD) with a E8400 @ 3.2Ghz
3. Is out there any app like "FahMon" or how do you check your "live" status
4. I left all projects selected from the list to crunch, it that alright
5. Any other rookie advice
1. The default setting is 60% usage I think but you can alter it in your settings
2. No idea
3. BoincView (but seems little harder to install and setup than Fahmon)
4. Yes, unless you are running Vista x64 ( I found that the Human Proteome Folding - Phase 2 did not play well)
5. Crack the beers out!!
2. See this thread.
3. I thought that version 6 of BOINC had a builtin utility for that. I think that's what they're talking about here Not sure how old this is - page info says it was modified today, but you know they lie.
1. 'advanced' menu option (must be in advanced view) -> preferences -> processor usage tab.
I would suggest setting CPU usage to 100% in the Manager. I don't like that bouncey CPU usage myself.
I only crunch the HCC and FCC units but that's just me. They are all worthy.
Not aware of any monitoring SW other than something like VNC where you can check all the rigs remotely.
Been getting my Crunchers sorted. Stupid OS is corrupt on the QX9650 rig so now I have the time waster of a reinstall..
Got the X3320 back online for a while. I'll be short one monitor tomorrow though...so I guess I'll let it churn away blind until the Asus 24" arrives from Newegg Thursday. We doing musical monitors in the house. I get the 24" Wife gets my 22". Son get's Mom's 19" and Daughter gets Son's 17"
Shoulda ordered that Asus last week but I had to sell some gear first.
I think that is just to give remote access to each machine and then you use BoincView for gui monitoring tool....but I may be reading it wrong.
More info on BoincView here
And you can download it here
a discussion on howto use boinc view: LINK
for 100% cpu usage, set it to 100%, other wise you see that cpu usage going up and down.
h3llb3nd4 is simply means that you have not modified your WCG online Device Profile for a while now. (under Device Manager you have Device Profile)
no need to really because we can always set it up manually on our local boinc manager
Thank you ALL, very useful TIPS
A word to folders with CPU's crunching. 100% CPU usage has crashed my rig twice with GPU clients running. I backed it off to 70% and it's stable now.
Was this with ATI cards??
I found that I had to give each card a core to get it to run properly..bit like with the SMP client with ATI cards.
Buck only folds with nVidia.
Ahh!! I see....running at 100% with my nVidia cards and no problems yet , fingers crossed
I got mine at 60%. It goes up and down but my max temps are much lower as a result.
I lowered my OC too cuz what I thought was stable was apparently not. Don't go 100% if it is your main and only rig!
Depends on the rig
I got a new/old cruncher back up: QX9650 @ 4ghz. Cured the corrupt files somehow...mysterious.
It's a bit blue-blood for a Cruncher but it's what I got P5E3/DDR3 1600/ 2 x V-Raps RAID0/8800GT/TT1200 PSU. Need to pop in a couple of GTX295
Your overclock must not be stable then. I have been running wcg and f@h on all my rigs for months, always at 100%. Do you have f@h set to slightly higher priority in the config?
