Oh my! MB-splitters don't work again! What's wrong at this time?

S@H staff are at home sleeping, so servers take time out..

As of this DTG you will immediately proceed WITH kitties to S@H HQ, when you WILL deploy said 'kitties' to resore order to S@H server mieces, which are running rampant and causing a rapid decline of RAC.

Oh noes! AP is about to be completely split, and MB is being slow with a lot of tapes. The end is near for those of you who still need APs. It's going to be DAYS before new tapes show up to get split. [/semi-sarcasm]

You scare me. I'm at work, and since they've disabled task viewing I can't see how many AP's I have downloaded. Now I'm not going to be able to concentrate on my work.

Crap...

You aint the only one whos somewhat less than pleased.
I spent hours finishing off ALL the damm GPU work in order to reset s@h, got it done, restarted sent sched request... All I get is GPU work, no CPU work which is what I need..

In addition this damm daft boinc manager reads local prefs from a project I'v disconected from. Had to find and delete the climateprediction local prefs:-(

Also, guess what, its set CPU tasks at a minus priority..

[anyone know how to overide boincs priorities?]

So who knows when I'm now going to get the CPU tasks I need to test that boinc isnt going to kill CPU tasks as it did before...

ARRRGGGHHHHH..

Make any small alteration on any project that you are connected to and it will override the old settings on the defunct project web settings.

Regards,

There is no such thing as climateprediction local prefs, local preferences are set by your Boinc Manager, just clicking 'Clear' and 'Yes' gets rid of them, (in Tools>Computing Preferences in Boinc 6.12.34)
The Computing prefs in use is set at the last project you set them, ie in your case it was probably climateprediction, if you change the Computing Preferences at Seti, then update the project in Boinc Manager,
Boinc Manager will show it's using Computing Preferences from Seti (known as a Global Preference, ie set once, use at all projects)

don't worry! Now your rigs should just to schedule a lot of APs. You will easily download them when bandwidth been free because of lack for new WUs generation...

Thanks Claggy,
I'll tweek s@h prefs after I've posted this..
how about priority setting for tasks? is there an .xml file somewhere that covers that?

Once again all MB's, and AP's in the splitter que error out. Something is fishy again, and will probably lead to a lost weekend when it comes to SETI.

Another database limitation reached maybe? Shouldn't it be possible to see this(calculate that it will happen), before it actually becomes a problem?

Crap ^2

Edit: Come to think of it, Crap ^4 :-)

I know, but one day is not enough to fix it, if it is a database problem. New tables to add, and then one day for recovery of the database.

The one thing I found interesting is that if everything goes into project backoff, one or both of the downloads in progress might continue and if one finishes it takes the whole thing out of backoff early.

If you've got the bandwith, you can have more than the default two transfers at a time. In your cc_config.xml file:
<max_file_xfers>n</max_file_xfers> <max_file_xfers_per_project>n</max_file_xfers_per_project>



Can you give us an example of an cc_config.xml file after you add the lines?
Because i try it, and client reply with an error at the file.

How's this?

<cc_config> <options> <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus> <max_file_xfers>4</max_file_xfers> <max_file_xfers_per_project>4</max_file_xfers_per_project> </options> </cc_config>


I'll try that the next time I touch the computer. Thanks.

My cache is full! A full 10 days of AP (55-56). Got issued about 10 B3_P1's and B6_P0's in the process. Moved those up to the front of the line to get rid of them and get some more.


At the moment I have 148 AP's in total. 95 on my AP only computer, and the rest divided between my other computers.

My AP only computer is still asking for and getting new AP's, and the other two just started asking again for new AP's, when I upped my connect time to 2 days. I'm going to take what I can while it lasts. One thing is sure, it will not be this easy for much longer.

I, personally, doubt you'll like your system behavior better with the BOINC CPU tasks running at higher priority, but you can set a currently running task's priority higher using Process Explorer or Task Manager, which might be a good first step to investigate the behavior. To get a priority that will be used for each new instance of a particular executable, you may find Process Lasso suitable. (you can wildcard the matching specification, so might not have to revise it each time a new science application is installed).

I understand your tag line of
"I'm so old, that 98% of all trees in the forest, are younger than I am"
Impressive since you live near Weott Californa, right?

Regards,



Mine does this if I set "connect about every" in prefs.

I use 13 + 10 to push GPU's into HP mode to force it to run shorties, when I do so it quite often stops asking for CPU.
