I did also end up with my queue only consisting of MCM units. It's gotten some FAAH now though.
I mentioned awhile back that I had deselected cep2 WU's and was still getting them. Even now that I have selected only faah I still get cep2. Similar to @Vinska problem?
You will receive CEP2 because FAAH and MCM are often not sending work. If you absolutly don't want to crunch CEP2, disable the option that says: "When no work is avaible send me other projects work" on WCG website.
Ah. Yes. I've seen this, but only with hardware that's just scraping by for project requirements (I think). How's the hardware?
His hardware is pretty good.
That's what you need to do to stop those CEP2 wu's
Ok this kinda freaked me out this morning. Is it possible that some of the WU's we are receiving could be injected by viruses?
Would be hard to believe. Could you analyze the WU using www.virustotal.com and post back the URL?
Here is the report, It seems only fortinet is the only AV that finds it.
I call false positive.
@brandonwh64 Aye, www.virustotal.com is a splendid tool when in doubt. Helps to weed out those pesky false-positives.
And yeah - looks like a false positive indeed
I sent fortinet a false positive alert email so they will change it.
almost 1000 pages
I don't know if this has come up, but I got an alert for an new version of boinc, and it suggests that I install virtualbox for projects that need it. so my question is, does wcg need it?
As far as I know, at the time of writing, no project on WCG needs it.
Also, all of my boxen run the version without VirtualBox, yet happily run all currently active projects, including betas, without any problems whatsoever; indicating VirtualBox appears to indeed not be needed.
I'll just leave this here.....
AFAIK, only the LHC@home project uses it.
7.0.64 to 7.2.31......Changelog? worth it?
See the changelog here
I personally see the most difference with the CPU scheduler - noticeably less buggy (still a bugfest nonetheless). But for 99% of the time for most users the 7.0.64 should be perfectly fine. *shrug*
So I'd say:
If You want to update just for the sake of updating and would need to turn BOINC off to do it - meh.
If You have Your BOINC stopped and/or just booted - go for it.
I'll be shutting down my main rig as soon as the challenge ends. I've to strip my rig tonight in preparation for some new goodies tomorrow (pics and details will be coming soon).
So I'll be out of commission tonight and likely all day tomorrow. I hope I can get it back together tomorrow, but if difficulties arise, it should be back on Sunday. I hope for a smooth transition.
welp. @manofthem, You are not alone. The two boxen I've got at home are going to be shut down for some preparations. Namely, both boxen are getting one more NIC each. (that means the 3.6 GHz / headless one is going to have 3 NICs after I am done with it.) I need that because I am getting a secondary innernets connection on Monday - gonna be using two ISPs. For a total of 150 mbps (100 mbps from the current one and additional backup 50 mbps from the new one). *shrug*
That sounds intense! 3 nics, 2 ISPs, 150mb/s Beast setup!
But at least I am not alone, makes me feel better.
Why do you need such a fast connection! That's insane!
The connection I've got right now is super great 'n all - especially since it is for free. But due what this ISP is, there are certain limitations. For 99% uses, those limitations are completely irrelevant. But I started hitting that 1% a lot since summer. Hence getting a secondary ISP that doesn't have such limitations. At this point, paying ten bux a month for that other ISP no longer seems too much. Hence getting it now. ...And that 1% is "hosting game servers".
And dyam - I have piles of PCI NICs, but my "main" box has no PCI slots and the "server / headless" one only has one. The "server" already got a secondary NIC in the PCI slot. But since I need to add yet another for each boxen, had to dish out some dough for PCI-E NICs. This just feels sad - got piles of PCI NICs, yet no slots to use 'em. *flips table*
P.S. if not for that economical crisis that hit at... was it 2007? (dunno. can't remember. don't care much.) I would have had 1gbps on my current ISP. *flips another table*
And here I was thinking that going above 10Mbps was superfluous.
