Glad it got found. That could have been way worse.
Ive got to get my WCG badge and star back! Tonight the Cruncher comes back online!
I need to crunch harder, I keep going from one star to two, back to one star.:shadedshu
I was excited getting a star but with the renovations to the house and not having a good video card, my numbers have gone down alot.
Check it out!! its here!
I will most likely cease crunching while I'm away, see link for explanation.
AWww hopefully you will come back full strength.
were are you going?
Sounds good to me. I wouldn't mind a vacation right now.
Best of luck bog, enjoy your time away.
I had a problem on the HTPC (2600k) with BOINC. No idea what. I uninstalled, reinstalled, yada, yada. You know the drill. But I always install with the advanced option. Since that wasn't working I finally tried the standard install and now it's fine.
I don't like the new layout. There's no messages tab. Shouldn't they have left that as an option at least? WTF?
Hopefully all of the rigs will behave themselves for at least a few days now.
Which version are you using?
I'm not sure. I think it was 6.10.60. But the one I tried to overwrite it with was what I'm using now which is 6.12.34
I'm using 6.12 I believe and It has a messages button. Not too sure, we'll have to verify.
There's a notices tab - which is an incredibly dumbed down version of the messages tab. I'm sure there's a log in the BOINC directory but I'm not going to root around for it or put a shortcut on my desktop.
BRING BACK THE MESSAGES TAB!!!
Occupy . . . . BOINC?!?! . . . .
Now that you mentioned that, you are right. It is a notices tab, and it is much dumbed down.
What you want is the Event Log. Click Advanced -> Event Log, or hit Ctrl+Shift+E. It's the same thing as the old messages tab, just harder to access and not integrated.
The time has arrived! My cruncher is at work and also hard at work HAHA
Awesome dude! Nice background.
I have a quick question. I am used to crunching on Server 2008 R2, so I am unfamiliar with this issue.
I have started crunching on my most powerful server at work, using 2x Xeon E5520 CPU's @ 2.4Ghz (Turbo) running Server 2003 64bit. I have capped BOINC at 50% of the "processors" in the system, assuming it would then stick to using 8 of the 16 available threads. This isn't the case, though, as it seems to be switching between the available threads constantly (see image for reference). I have not capped available cores on my other dedicated crunching boxes, so I am not sure if this is a Windows issue, where it is forcing the busy threads to jump around constantly, or a BOINC issue. I assume its a Server 2003 issue...
Anyone got any ideas on how I can "fix" the 8 busy threads so they don't constantly skip around? I don't think that forcing affinity on the BOINC process is going to help... since it runs different processes for the science apps... and apart from that or waiting for some downtime and installing Server 2008 R2, I am out of ideas...
Thanks in advance
The CPU % can be a little misleading. It's not a load based % but a time loaded %:
100%: it runs all the time.
90%: 9 second run, 1 second idle.
80%: 4 second run, 1 second idle.
70%: 3 second run, 1 second idle, 2 second run, 1 second idle, 3 second run, etc.
60%: 1 second run, 1 second idle, 2 second run, 1 second idle, 1 second run, etc.
50%: 1 second run, 1 second idle, 1 second run, 1 second idle, etc.
40%: 1 second run, 1 second idle, 1 second run, 2 seconds idle, 1 second run, etc.
30%: 1 second run, 1 second idle, 1 second run, 3 seconds idle, 1 second run, 2 seconds idle, etc.
20%: 1 second run, 4 seconds idle, 1 second run, 4 seconds idle, etc.
10%: 1 second run, 9 seconds idle.
0%: It's paused.
To the best of my knowledge there's no way to set it as anything else.
