Yea, im trying to get 1 quad to do scripting on 24/7 so i will crunch it
Best of luck!
What kind of scripting?
yeah, both CPU intensive. I don't care what they say on WCG or BOINC, even at the lowest priority setting some of those wu's are a pain in the ass. My guess is because some tend to use so much memory. On CEP2, I added up the working memory on 6 wu's and it was well over 1gig. Even with 8 gig I was running on that rig it kept hitting the page file and causing cache misses.
I don't think so. If there's a problem it might take longer to deal with but that's why you always have your queue set to dl at least 2-3 days worth of work. In the event of a complete failure, you can crunch for about that long and just have a shit load of work to upload when things come back on online.
Numbers still a little to high for a normal day it seems, at the half way mark I'm at 122k WCG PPD and thats 22k more than I ever had before.
I'm at 69k for the day so far, which is higher than I have been doing (~50-55k/half day), but that's easily explainable by the i7 running part-time. So I'm not sure, I'd guess things are back to normal or close to it.
Not 2.3mil, but still very good!!
Great job everyone
If we can maintain a consistent 2.2mil or even 2.1mil I'll be very excited indeed
I would too! Although, there is never enough PPD in WCG! Always need moar!
Reminds of the quote "Too much is never enough"
Definitely, although I'll always be pleased with what we get, I'll never be satisfied. Always gotta drive for more
What happened guys? I'm still proud of y'all, but this was very unexpected.
The hamsters just need to sober up before we can let them loose again.
Hamsters? Is there something I'm missing out on?
It's just an old joke from when I was at XS. I figured it had been exported here during the exodus last year. Actually, the joke is a lot older than XS. The idea is that the computers are powered by hamsters. When it's slow, the hamsters are tired - or drunk. Like that . . . .
When I was a kid we would joke about the cars running on hamster power. It's a really old meme.
Ah, I see. That works. Not too logical, but whatever. Never would have thought of drunk hamsters I think
My dad says that his car runs on squirrels...so that sorta makes sense
Drunk hamsters FTW
Good job guys, but remember stats were bugged earlier today so maybe that's why?
Good day team
Still think somethings not up to date with the numbers, look at my score yesterday 25% less than a normal day.
Yeah, if you look at the team page on free-dc, the last update was jan 25th at 19:02 GMT, so the final of the 4 daily xml updates never happened. There's a thread on the WCG forum but no answers yet. It's a little annoying. In more than 24 hours either they haven't noticed the problem or they can't be bothered to acknowledge it. Nice work if you can get it. 'Yeah, I'll toss those losers a bone tomorrow - maybe - if I feel like it.'
But instead of ranting, I'm going to my happy place - just as soon as I find one that is.
Stopp ranting Free-dc is updated
Yeah, just saw that. Still no comment on WCG though. Eh. WTF. It's fixed. Hopefully FDC will pick up the missed milestones, they'll just get credited on the wrong day. Not a big deal.
Yeah #'s yesterday were lower so we could have had a record day for what we know.
That's perfectly likely. I know it's sort itself out at some point and give us a sweet day, it looks like we do now!
Don't thing WCG stats will give us a boost today, my numbers lokks just right for a normal day at the half way point.
....which is mostly expected
Although, I expect today to be higher than normal for me for WCG, in only a bit, my points halfway through the day are higher than normal.
