    I have my app_config set up so that 5 WUs can be going at the same time (4 GPU and 1 CPU). However, it doesn't seem to be the case with Help Conquer Cancer WUs for GPU and CPU...

    [​IMG]

    Any ideas why?

    I had 4 GPUs and 1 CPU working OK with the Clean Energy Project.

    A two core instance did around 2k PPD and it was around $15/30 days runtime as far as I remember. They were running under Linux and did real good but you have to hold it up against - noise, heat, HW investment and electricity cost. I had 20 times 2 cores when it was free and ended up having one until I couldn't connect to it any longer. If i lived in a real hot country with real high electricity cost I would do it.

    As I see it you have your 4 GPU running and the CPU WUs are waiting since the lone CPU core is working on CEP which only just started. Did you made the change to more GPU/less CPU just now? If yes then all is OK.

    You're running only HCC WUs (GPU and CPU both) so check your appconfig file.

    Code:
    <app_config>
       <app>
          <name>hcc1</name>
          <max_concurrent>[B][COLOR="Red"]X[/COLOR][/B]</max_concurrent>
          <gpu_versions>
              <gpu_usage>??</gpu_usage>
              <cpu_usage>??</cpu_usage>
          </gpu_versions>
       </app>
    </app_config>
    Try changing the X to 5.

    Ah, yes.

    I have 4.

    For gpu 0.5 and cpu 0.75. The idea was to have a little cpu left over to run just a cpu WU.

    I have a quad core (qx9770) which has only 4 threads.

    I now have other types of WUs so no problem.

    I will try 5 when I only have HCC WUs. Thanks for the idea.

    OK guys, I've compiled the current points of all entrants in my spreadsheet--you can see your progress here:

    Soup's entry and Aquinus' entry have since been fixed ;)

    Warning to NHKS, 7mm, seby83, blibba, modded, sneddenraj, The Grapist, and Sorin Tanasa: all of you are in danger of not making the required points (25k BOINC, or 175k in my spreadsheet). You need to turn things up a bit, and I'd like a PM. Thanks!

    Does anyone know of a stats website that updates fairly quickly?

    The WCG website often seems to take a day or more to register what I've done, and there's no way of knowing how much individual tasks are worth in the client.

    I've recently turned 3 cores of my 3.6GHZ socket-1156 Xeon onto WCG, about how many BOINC should they be earning per hour?

    I think WCG website updates in 12-13 hrs.
    Head to Ion's WCG Essentials Thread for more information.

    The WCG website updates every twelve hours. The BOINC manager updates whenever you hit "Update" in the projects tab. Free-DC updates three times a day (~8AM EST, ~3PM, ~8PM). BOINCStats updates on a pattern that I haven't been able to figure out yet :p

    How many days left to go?? Now both my GPU's are making noise, 1 I got back from RMA over the summer. I sent in a RMA request and willl send them both in for repair/replace.

    I am going to keep them running until the challenge is over or they blow. After that I will be out of the game until I can get them back.

    Sorry to hear you're having trouble :( I would suggest shutting down those cards if they may fail on you- best to preserve what you have and go for the long haul..... I have my 6870 giving me trouble atm but I should be able to get it back to 100% with a dose of fresh TIM (I've cut the clock back on it until I can take care of it) ;)

    Challenge ends next Friday (3/8)

    :cry:

    I just came here to ask for some input on a purchase decision I have. The major reason why I'm considering it is because for crunching, my rig...

    I will post this here as well as I posted it on your other thread.

    I actually think that you would be better off running dual 7770's or a single 7850 or 7870 rather than the 6xxx series of cards.

    I am running a single 6870 in one of my crunching rigs and it doesn't do worth a crap at crunching. :banghead:

    I would really like to trade it for a 7770 or just sell it and purchase a 7770. The 7770 will put out much better PPD's than the 6xxx series of cards.
