FWIW, default BOINC behavior (not the work units themselves, but the way BOINC works) can cause PPD to bounce around a little bit on its own. There is a setting you can change only by creating a cc_config.xml file with the report_results_immediately flag set. This uploads a work unit as soon as it is finished, as opposed to waiting for the next time BOINC communicates with the server. Just open Notepad/ paste this in, and save it as cc_config.xml. It goes in the boincdata folder... wherever it is by default, I dunno. During installation, I make a new folder for BOINC to live in called DC, with subdirectories Boinc and BoincData. The DC folder helps keep things neat if I decide to install FAH, too. It would also go there.

Code:
<cc_config>
<options>
<report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>
</options>
</cc_config>
Thanks i will do this. Btw how to do this in Ubuntu 18.04 lse. Thanks

update: the file is already there so i added the line like this
boinc1.jpg

is this ok?

Should be fine. If you want to be sure, just watch BOINC manager when a WU is close to being done and see if it begins to upload immediately as soon as it's done.

From the chat earlier in Pie thread...

@AmioriK , check to see if you're running MIP on those Linux/Ryzen's. They do not get along. I would suggest setting up one of the (crap - WCG is updating so I can't check the correct wording) device profiles without MIP and assign the Linux/Ryzen's to it. It's under settings...
Linux/Ryzen 1700 will get ~10K with MIP, 22K with Zika! Here, check my 1700 running Zika/HST https://boincstats.com/en/stats/15/host/detail/4672064/lastDays

Edit: MIP totally rocks on Windows/Intel.
I believe this is what you're referring too isn't it @thebluebumblebee ??

I've just created a new profile and updated the default one as I'll use that for the 5960X.. I'll see how the points side of things go... :)

Apologies, @mstenholm, copied the text and attachments as put them in this thread and not the previous guess it didn't like the copy and paste move....

So finally I got around to convert one of my Windows cruncher/folders to Linux (Ubuntu). I had to install twice and twice I made the mistake to choose English which I think is what give me problems now with my Scandinavian keyboard. I can't find : which is used a lot in terminal commands. I spent too much time today so the folding part have to wait. That's minus 1.4M PPD. :ohwell:
245 W for my X58 Hex just crunching and the 2700x is running circles around it at 190-200 W.

The problem with the X58 UD7 MB is that the spacing between the slots are narrow and the top card needs 80 % fan to stay below 70 C. I figured out how to get the : so there is hope yet for at least the 1070 ti. The 2060 will end up with a 1070 in my Ryzen 7, sooner or later. I think that 4M PPD is decent but 5.5 is better for sure.

Would you consider using some GPU risers? Then you can space them out however you'd like to :) Allows plenty of air that way as well :)

I have been thinking about it but this is a old rig (8 years I think) and the PSU is running 540 W out of 700 and getting warm in the process so I will give it a quiet retirement. My new 2700x with a 860 W can handle it. Tomorrow, maybe.

Also forgot to add; i just added a Ryzen 7 2700 to my farm. Now i have 2x 1700 and one 2700 on Linux crunching 24/7. The 2700 does 3.4Ghz at the same wattage as the 1700 which does 3.2, not bad for a refresh. Now i have 4x 8 core 16 thread CPUs crunching ^^ my main PC is out of action till tuesday though. Since i gave my 2700X to my mate to put in his Helios 500 Laptop (4 ghz 8 core in lappie, the helios has top notch cooling), and he bought me another 2700X for my PC since he wanted to test it. But that's 32 cores 64 threads for WCG :) including the 1200, 36 cores 68 threads lol. I think I have a crunching problem...

It's not a problem but rather, an enthusiasm. :) Nothing wrong with an enthusiasm.

So I got up at 4 AM and found out that my new router was acting up. Hotline opens at 9 so I spent the time finding out that WI-FI had gone and two of the four wire connections dead. That's no problem for WCG but five folding GPUs couldn't upload. Drove and got a replacement router that didn't work. Drove back and got one that did. Spent almost two hours with hotline in the process. At 14:00 things were back to normal. What we do to keep out equipment running. Time for breakfast.

Just can't give me an edge, can you? :p

I have some new machines on the way, just need to figure out how to power them..
I was trying to claw in what I lost by going beta on all GPUs but that back-fired - my 2060s don't like them. One so bad that it is in bad standing, the other lost three WUs in the process. Back to normal with only the 2070s doing them now. Yes I know wrong forum.

Been super busy with work for the last few months and finally got a weekend off. I've wanted to go to a smaller case for a while now and about a month I picked up a corsair 275R. Newegg had it on sale and with the rebate was only about $50. They have updated the TG window with posts on the case frame and thumbscrews instead of the allen screw that all the reviews hated. Its actually a really nice case especially for the price. My ram wont sync with aura anymore so it just does the rainbow pattern, but I kind of like it that way with solid color on the strips and fans. Here it is, can't decide between orange or the light blue/white. I'm going to get some 90 degree fittings and clean up the loop a bit. It is pretty tight but I think I can make it look a little better. I also need to top of the reservoir, but it's good enough for now.

That's a pretty slick system, man. The RGB RAM is almost forgivable... :laugh:

I still want to see one of our less sane members build racks of systems connected to a mack truck radiator with a big industrial fan strapped to it. It would be even more fun to connect it to a really high pressure pump, if it wouldn't blow up somehow.



It's a good thing I'm not rich. Surely, I would be doing ridiculous things...

Here it is, can't decide between orange or the light blue/white.

The Orange is much less harsh, more soothing. That would be my pick. Nice box, good work at it.

Apologies for the lack of updates recently everyone, had Isabelle with me and we've been driving all over the country visiting people and my Grampy, so just updated everything this morning...

On another note, has anyone noticed any issues with running Mint 19.1? It seems to be a right memory sucker compared to 18.3, I just wondered if anyone had noticed any difference? :)

Any idea where our Cap'n @Norton has been? I feel like I missed something somewhere...
