Statistics Last Updated: 7/5/10 23:59:59 (UTC) [6 hour(s) ago]
My stats have been VERY sad the last few days - I was rebuilding my "server" and changing over to Win7 64, and I've been effectively offline for the last ~5 days - anyway, Im back online now
It's still not much but every bit helps eh?
Teh' new server hardware :
you use a 5850 for a server
how much storage space is that, looks crazy just seeing so many drives.
little lower but still not bad
Finally now that both of my rigs are fully stable and none have issues, my #'s are really racking up Top rig is the i7, bottom is the X6.
CP has been getting some nice slices of pie
It's been awhile
Yep, thing was that my X6 finally caught up on some work so I got a big update in the AM. It should settle by tomorrow.
VERY BAD NEWS!!!
Somebody please help : I am being effectively forced to quit Crunching
Since I started WCG everything's been going great - I setup the client & it's been purring way like a kitten in the background ever since. However since I moved over to Win7-64, its been a nightmare.
The Bonic client (Or Win7) completely disregards it's CPU priority threading so badly that I cant even BOOT my multi-core VM's at all, and any & all other multi-threaded applications are dysfunctional to to the point of straight out pointlessness.
As of today I have to completely remove the Bonic client from my system.
This is especially sad as it co-existed perfectly harmlessness so very very well with the exact same services & VM's on WinXP-32.
The WCG threads ARE automatically setting themselves to idle priority, but it's as though the system just straight up doesn't care - and treats them as though they are near-realtime.
Even if I set the CPU usage lower in the client (which I DON'T want to do anyway as its wasteful, and it ran with 100% usage JUST FINE in XP) it just starts processing in small burst of 100% usage and every time it does that every other multithreaded application grinds to a halt then resumes.
I am very sad about this - Unless anyone knows of a fix this will have to be the end of my participation in this project, which until now has been an absolute pleasure to be part of.
There's over 10TB there :3
Not sure about fixing your problem, but WCG always processes in bursts like that... it runs within a certian percentage of cpu time, not cpu usage.
So just to make suer I am understanding, you are saying that the PC gets ridiculously slow when running BOINC on the new install of Windows 7?
That's what it sounds like. Very odd, I have Win7 x64 on both my rigs and they're just as fast with BOINC as without
Yeah, Boinc doesn't slow my rig down that much. Not while I'm web browsing anyways.
Have you tried re installing it?
I can try - (I'll be around in about 2 hours time) but it is a brand new install... Like i said its as though its just not respecting its thread priority settings - if i start another multi threaded .. well anything - such as an xvid encode - it runs like total ass - ~3fps - the second i pause BONIC/WCG - straight up tp 220fps :\
And yes i have already checked the WCG threads ARE set to idle priority, and the encode thread(for example) is set higher.
None of my VM's would boot at all - unless I limit them to 1 thread only - then they sort of work, but respond poorly - or i close BONIC/WCG - then everything runs great and my VM's can use multiple cores again no problem... It's very odd...
Uninstall and install again using the "older version" from the below link. I had issues with both of the newer versions.
Give the "older version" a shot And see dude.
Can you tell my rigs are getting up to speed?
Good numbers you'll, keep up the good work. Despite the heat and summer we are still hanging in there.
Okay guys, so I have to be careful with my rig crunching for the next few days. Dumbshit roommate fucked with the house AC and my rig shutdown from the heat. My poor cat almost had a damn heat stroke.
I plan on putting in a window AC unit and some more fans for my rig sometime next week. Then I'll be back to 100% crunching speed again.
