So... what could pfb stand for? The mb_splitters are no more, there's only ap_splitters and pfb_splitters. No explanation in the Glossary yet.

personal file bitch? ;-)

From Matt's Technical News post, Crashy, from Feb 21 2013. ;-)

"Behind the scenes development has been largely focused on getting a new polyphase filter bank splitter into production. The current splitter has standard, known FFT artifacts causing dips in sensitivity at the edges of workunits and rolloffs at the edges of the whole 2.5MHz band, but this new splitter will create workunits that exhibit more even sensitivity across the whole spectrum, as well as more sensivity in general to find singals in the noise."


Cheers.

OK, and now in English?


The polyphase filter bank splitters has been splitting the old MB WU's for weeks now (hmm, or at least a few splitters named like that) They didn't change name today (at least not all of them). You must have missed that.

Details on pfb splitters:

Got my first 13 v7 tasks, one of them is already 40% complete.

Probabily an "stupid" question, what i need to do to start crunching V7, i´m running CPU (Intel)/GPU x41zc apps. Anyone have a simple receipt? Thanks.

(edit) I´m allready enable V7 on preferences.

My recommendation (Subject to change after I try it) would be:
- Set No New tasks
- Wait until tasks all complete, upload & report
- delete app_info.xml from the project directory
- reset the project
- Allow New tasks

Extra notes: Probably need to check web options too in there somewhere [OK :)]. I'd try let the server decide amongst the compatible versions over some time with one instance per GPU (underutilised due to memory intensive Autocorrelations) then worry about multi instances after things settle in. You'd likely want either newer Recommended Boinc for that, or wait for installer for older Boinc clients to run with app_info (anonymous platform)

Now that the servers are down at the colo, I can't even hear them crash.

This works just fine as I got a load of stock CUDA42 work, I did have to make a few changes so I could run them full out instead of normal speed.

Haha, now for multiple instances, I'm going to have to either modify newer Boinc with adaptive flops/aDCF-equivalent, or backport app_config.xml support into modded 6.10.58. *sigh*

I have about 20 v7 7.03 WU's right now. (opencl_ati5_cat132). I guess it is rollin' out!

Seeing as I am already running 7.1.1, I already have app_config support on my machine.

Now my other machine is up and running v7 as well.

Now my 670 and 660 have both CUDA42 and CUDA50 to work on.

The 650 Ti still only has CUDA42.

Whazzup?

Can't resolve host name indicates a DNS type problem.
Have you got a hosts file? Any entries affecting Seti servers other than the download server?

I have no hosts file as far as I know, have never manually set one up.

That takes that out of the equation.

And what's odd is that most of the files are now showing a percentage downloaded, but the next time they try again, the can't resolve host name comes up again.

Hopefully they'll all be downloaded before you need to figure out just what is going on.
