I've always found that the -hp parameter causes too much keyboard and mouse input lag to be tolerable.

Message 1917080 - Posted: 5 Feb 2018, 14:30:29 UTC

Thanks for the replies guys, I'll make the mods when I get back to the computer. Right now I'm sitting in a hotel room in LA, going to a Solidworks convention for the next couple days, then some CAMWorks training later in the week, and I don't trust anyone there to modify it, especially not by 11yo daughter! lol.

Not being there, and not having a remote viewer installed on them so I can monitor them from here and going by the My Computers link on the site, it looks like possibly a couple of my computers have ran out of work? I see that both the new one and FlashFlyer are running a number of hours late in reporting back to the project, and I can see how this can happen if they are out of work and get backed off by the project if it doesn't have any work to send.

Reading the Panic Mode thread, it sounded like things are pretty sparse now, might this be the reason? Also, not sure how hard I want to drive the new one, because if I push it too far, with keyboard delays and such, I will most certainly hear all about it from my daughter when she is using it (maybe 2-5 hours, 3 days a week on average, sometimes 4). Is there a way to easily throttle back the aggressiveness when the computer is in use? I know that it can be set to suspend when in use, but I was hoping to keep processing, just not as aggressively, and not have to change the config file when she is going to use it. I know, 1st world problems and all that, but I like pushing my hardware when it makes sense, which is most of the time, but this is a special circumstance.

I have the same "daughter problem", just mine it's a little older. LOL .
What you could do is set the parameters to a less aggressive setting to avoid the lags, etc. And/Or in some extreme cases (like gaming) set them as exclusive apps.
In my case my daughter hosts has a 6800K CPU/1070 GPU and only need to use exclusive apps when she go to play gaming with highly graphics usage. Most of the times the simple setting adjusts works perfect and the crunching process continues with a little loss in the daily production.
If you need help to do that, just post what is the host she is running so we could configure a less aggressive setting.

Juan, thanks for the thoughts. I am polluting this thread too much with my config issues, I will start a new thread to get this one back OT.

Yes, GPUGrid work is very spotty. You almost have to sit on the site and watch the SSP for when ACEMD Long Tasks make an appearance and then they are snatched up very quickly.

Will be interesting to see what the effect of these longer running WUs is on Credit granted.
Same, more, or even less?

Just had a look.
50-60 was the going rate. Getting between 70-80 for the longer running WUs (at the moment at least).
Interestingly, just to show the weirdness that is Credit New, that last little batch of Arecibo work paid from 55-75 for WUs with 2 seconds difference in their Run times.

Now is a good time to see how your machine run with all the new work available.

These new tasks are taking about 30 seconds longer than the previous for an additional 10 credits on average.

It seems to be a bit in order the GPUGRID link to show up on my profile so right now just a link.

Your post forced me to look at your tasks and the benefit was I finally saw short tasks available. I haven't seen any of those before since I joined in December.

Unfortunately they all errored out just like the long tasks do on my Linux cruncher. Will have to wait for a new application to fix that issue. Good news is that I have both short and long tasks running on the Windows cruncher.

Unfortunately, GPUGRID has not shown up on my projects in which I am participating in. I guess it will show up one day. I just go through doing another 12hr one...

Do you by chance have Gridcoin as your Project Manager? Any projects attached to Gridcoin do not have hosts or tasks visible in the project itself apparently. Seen a lot of posts about the same problem you report. You have to use Gridcoin as your manager.

Think causes the same issue. You won't be able to view tasks and Hosts without using BAM.

Work at GPUGrid is very much a hit and miss. I sometimes have a computer there but I run more Einstein as backup for that computer than I do GPUGrid.
