I'm over 1600 units from a limit of 1100. Piggy is at the trough....

The GTX560 is over 1500 and that is just for the GPU.
The CPU are idle and will stay that way.

Is anyone tracking the changes in "results out in the field"?

I'm up to 2900 on my i7 single GPU rig so 100 per CPU and 800 per GPU may be a bit low. Perhaps they've got a different metric.

It's so nice seeing this:

5/9/2012 7:31:46 PM SETI@home Scheduler request completed: got 85 new tasks

With that said out of 1500ish tasks I have 6 shorties. Finally building up a cache that will last a few days!

Surely you of all people should have faith in the servers, and not need a cache? ;-)

My "single GPU only" got up to 1616 overnight, on a five day cache setting. I think that proves the point - we're effectively running unlimited - so I'll turn it back down to something more reasonable now. We're already over 5.1 million 'out in the field', which means a lot of pending for someone: I'm happier to have mine pending, than to make other people have to wait.

5.2M results out. Back when we had graphs and were running good we maxed out at 6 - 6.5M. Taking into account that's at least 9 months ago, we're more looking at 7M.

Give us and our donors another 3 years then I'll bet everything is much more generally awesome at the lab.

Reduce the size of your cache & you won't have so many.

I now have enough wu's for the next 16 days.
I thought the cache couldn't be larger then 10 days.

I did put in:

Maintain enough tasks to keep busy for at least (max 10 days): 9.5 days
... and up to an additional: 10 days

Should I change something?

Yes, if you don't want it to try to fill to 19.5 days. The web preferences allow setting so that the host will have a cache with a minimum of 10 days and maximum of 20. I'd consider those 10/10 settings something like a 15 day cache because it would drop down to 10 before trying to refill to 20. But I'd expect it to sometimes have trouble actually filling to 20.

Basically, the "additional" setting should control how often the host asks for work. Something less than 1 day seems sensible to me, perhaps the default 0.5 days which should only ask for work about twice a day.

Thanks, that explains the options a bit. :)

But when I put in 10 and 0 then it waits till I have nothing left before new wu's are downloaded.

Well it's far from summertime here (-4C here this morning), but yes it's very good not having each unit nag the servers every 5mins, or see that "reached limit" message all the time, now. :D

Cheers.

Give it a few months......
IF the new servers all get successfully deployed, and downtime is no longer a prime concern of the kitties, they might even consider the possibility of carrying a little less in their kibble bowls.

I know, that is blasphemy coming from the kittyman, LOL.

But...it could happen.

There is some additional Boinc overhead involved in carrying a large cache. And to that end, the tradeoff has served me well in the past.

But, I might reconsider if things go exceptionally well for an extended period of time.

I'm at 1447 at the moment on the 590, Boinc is saying about 2 days of cache, it's a been so long since I've seen that, that I'm not used to seeing 2 days this way. :D

I know it is all very confusing to be back to "normal" again.

It looks like most of my machines who had their TDCF go nuts are back around normal after the weekend.
