    Less than 12 hrs to go and 2 more Teams have signed up (27 total)! :toast:

    I have one rig running 100% CEP2 and two others should be at 100% before the start of the challenge.

    Time to fill up those buffers Team!!! ;)

    I'll be increasing the buffers today and both rigs will be running 24/7 starting tonight. We have lots of teams in this challenge so we need to all be on top of our game.

    Exciting times! :toast:

    Having a hell of a time getting the servers up. 4P-6176 is running CEP-2 now. 4P-6180 should be up within 2 hrs after I wipe a drive and re-install. Sorry for the late start.

    Anyone know how to view individual processes on 12.04LTS?

    Define "view individual processes" and I probably [99.9% chance] be able to tell You how to.

    EDIT: with several hours left till the start of the challenge, gonna game a bit. As after it starts, no gaming whatsoever and only CRUUUUUUUUUUUUUNCH!!!!!

    Nevermind, System Monitor will show if all the cores are loading up with work. Are we having a shortage of CEP-2 work?

    My other 8350 only got 2 WUs even though the profile is set for 6 concurrent.

    Bummer, people. Bummer. :(

    Meanwhile, I am rolling in dozens upon dozens of CEP2 WUs...
    I'd "share" if that would be possible. :shadedshu

    Just got 3 more CEP-2 on the AMD quad core/Win 7 machine.

    Can someone post a screenshot of the WCG GUI you are using under Ubuntu? Something does not seem right. Out of 48 cores, only one is loaded 100%. The others are bouncing between 0% and 15%

    Thanks to the feeder failure last night it looks like we're only getting wu's in small batches... only getting 4 at a time when I manually update :banghead:


    @ Buck- sorry Bud, I don't have my Ubuntu 12.04LTS system here so I can't grab a screenshot for you :(

    I currently have 25 CEP@'s in my queue! I have two FA@H's in the mix, that should run sometime overnight.

    This SuperCache thingy I downloaded, is awesome. See my ongoing updates in the 'Wanna run 100% CEP2' thread.

    Crunch hard TEAM TPU!! Let's win this thing!!!

    :lovetpu:

    PS. Get your free 14 day trial and save your HDD or SSD from getting thrashed during the challenge!!

    It dramatically slows down disc writes, and is VERY easy to set up.

    Ubuntu 12.04LTS and I used the software center, or whatever it's called, to get the BOINC manager. The only thing added in was the immediate report deal in the cc_config.

    I really don't know that much about Linux so I just muddled through it, used the help sections at WCG and BOINC, and got it to work. :eek:

    aww gee wiz what a splendid start! 31 CEP2 WUs with a total of 19 hours worth of CPU time going on a big nice juicy computation error.
    Well, at least it's not that bad. I mean - I know the feeder is having problems. Yet I still got several times more CEP2 WUs queued up, so at least I am not out of WUs because of this mishap.

    ...the challenge did start already, right?

    Starts in 22 minutes ;)

    Results turned in after the start count towards the challenge (i.e. today's runtime counts if you wait 22 min to report)

    Crap. Not only I had a ton of computation errors, but I also jumped the gun and reported all I saved up an hour early.

    #define RHETORICAL

    Can this get any worse? :(

    So far no errors or invalids for me. CEP2 work okay on my dorm room rig, but I will be at my parents tonight and a large part of tomorrow so I will not leave the PC running. My secondary PC will crunch though, and should be sufficiently stable.

    Sidenote: World Solar Challenge participants are on their way! Semi-live tracking (updated each 10 mins but there are some hickups): http://www.worldsolarchallenge.org/dashboard/map
    The organisation had a webcam at the start btw, so I could see the start at Livestream. I hope they do that at the finish line too. :)

    No issues with any of them w/ BOINC installed through the software centers. What BOINC are you using? Is this CEP only, or all projects/
