Just a couple of questions -

Does changing your Device Profiles on the WCG web page over ride any settings that you have set on your machine locally or do you need to change them in Boinc Manager preferences.

Is there any app like FahMon (which is for Folding@home) to monitor each machine's progress locally over my home network.

Dunno what's up Fit. Try uninstalling and reinstalling and make sure you have it properly configured in Preferences (100% CPU, all cores etc)

I agree, something is seriously FUBAR here. You're running an i7 and some other machine against my lone Q6600, clocked at only 3 gig.....:confused:

Are you running 24/7? Are you SURE your machine is on the right account? When you sign in to WCG, click "device mgr" do all your machines show? Are the profiles assigned to the machines set for 100% CPU use, and max cores available? If done right, a given machine's perf mgr should show all your cores hammered 100%.

What does your "result status" log at WCG show? Use the filter. How many errors do you have? Is the I7 clocked real aggressive? High overclock will create boatloads of errors. What projects are you running?

You should be blowing me away, as I expected to happen......Let's figure this out and get you up to full power. It won't help to have our Team Captain floundering......;)

Sorry for the twenty or forty questions....:eek:

I'm assuming "one-PC" is the machine name we're talking about? Good catch on the clock.
I run all my stuff full bore, big energy hog mode. :laugh: All the speed step and processor features are turned off.

Still looking at the rest of the stuff you posted. You might try just running a known project like HFCC. That way we could eliminate any funnies caused by project. Rice, energy, HPF2 w/ Vista, and recently HCC, have all had issues.

Also, you could give us a screenie of "My Statistics > Device Statistics" click on the offending machine to give us it's daily score history.

Is the offending machine throwing errors, under "results status" at WCG. Sorry if this was asked before...:p

Here's my Farm-02, the machine I threw on the new account. It's still ramping up.

Just a couple of questions -

Does changing your Device Profiles on the WCG web page over ride any settings that you have set on your machine locally or do you need to change them in Boinc Manager preferences.
This can be tricky...If you make a change on the WCG site, save it, then hit "update" on your machine, it will pick up the WCG settings.

If you go into local settings and change that, it will use those. I'm not sure if that lasts or not, I have not played with it too much.

I make all my changes on the WCG profile, and call it good. I know there was a time when the local pref part of the BOINC client was kind of screwy, I suppose that was fixed, but I still don't use it.

Anyone else have more to add here?


Is there any app like FahMon (which is for Folding@home) to monitor each machine's progress locally over my home network.
You bet there is. It's called "BoincView" The original author seems to have fallen off the planet, so there is no more development going on that I'm aware of. In fact, trying to find downloads of it is getting harder. There is one here, from someone's personal website. Say thanks to him when you get it.... Perhaps this download could be hosted on this site too?

I run this on my main farm workbench machine and monitor all the machines on my network.

Here's a setup wiki.

Ahh, I just caught that you were running Win 7. I have not tried that yet. By v64, you mean Vista 64 right? That's what I run across the farm.

Thanks for the links Bob....I dont see any contact details to thank the host, but will grab it anyway and keep a copy for anyone else looking for it.

Just took a quick look at the install, seem a bit complicated but will read it better later ..after the football :laugh:...and give it a try.

Does this look right? I'm running 3 systems with WCG. One's an i7 (about 12 hours a day), then 2 24/7, a e2160 and a AMD 5000+BE. I'm still trying to get a grip on how to interpret the statistics.

We're climbing boys. 24th in points generated yesterday. :toast:

No real way to tell from that page. The "my statistics>device statistics" on your WCG account page is where you should look. Click on one of the computers listed and it will give you the daily production of that machine. You can see how it's building score and what it's rough daily average looks like. Remember that this takes some time for the numbers to settle in. The quorum system causes this. There are faster and slower machines that are your quorum partners. You have to wait for them to settle in on their score too.

If you posted your daily average for a given machine, list it's specs, we might be able to tell you if it looks to be in the ballpark for that type of machine. Kentsfield or Penryn quads I know well. I run lots of those. The other machines i7, etc, we'll have to see if others are getting similar numbers.

Regards,
Bob

The answer is yes, but not on WCG, which is the focus of this team and thread. Right now, WCG is CPU crunching only. WCG may get GPU crunching at some time, but not for now. So, continue to crunch what you have. :rockout:

Folding is another team on the forum, with their own forum section.

I do CUDA crunching on GPUs for GPUGrid, which is another thing totally different from WCG. There is no GPUGrid team for TPU that I am aware of yet...
