Message 1917144 - Posted: 5 Feb 2018, 18:07:41 UTC - in response to Message 1917130.  


I would suggest a zero resource share (in project preferences) on one's backup project as then BOINC only downloads a bare minimum of work, ie if there is a core or GPU free it will download one work unit for it, and not keep a cache. Then when SETI@Home has work it will fill the cache as much as it can and suspend the backup's work until the timeout is near.

That's how I handle Einstein. Works just fine.

Hello,

may I'm blind, but where can I do, what You suggest?
"We have repeatedly suggested that in addition to SETI@home (with priority 100) people connect to multiple projects with priority 0 or 1, so you'll always have something useful to do. "

I just can't find a Option for that in the Boinc Manager.

A couple TB or early observations will be coming online soon.

One small file copied over from last nights AO observation and is in the radar blanker queue.

I have set "Seti@home Beta Test" as back up project. Still SETI.

@betreger
..seriously?

Thanke you for the detailed note.

I have already seen the point tools, but I do not see where for each single projectthere could be assigned a corresponding priority.
So if someone who knows how to do it and is willing to write more than one word can help me, this would be very nice.

Eric mentioned to me that they average about 1.1TB per day, which is about 120Mbps continuous 24/7. But they don't have 24/7 access to the Greenbank pipe. But it would certainly help.

You should install and test a FTP server and drop him a PM.




Hmmmm, at work we have a 500 Mbps upload and download connection to the internet. Maybe I should stand something up for this coming weekend.

Definitely certainly clear it with the boss/owners first. You wouldn't want to find out on Monday that they pay by the byte.

You set the resource share percentage at each project's Preference page.


. . To expand a little, that means go your accounts page for each project and find preferences or tools for that project and set the priority to 0%.

Well, the network folks are still debugging and haven't isolated the problem. I've thought about requesting that they replace all the hardware between here and GBT.

Matt is talking about the possibility of shipping disks (for Breakthrough purposes primarily), but the hardware necessary probably couldn't be in place for a couple months, assuming GBT will let us use additional space and power there.

Let us know if new hardware is needed Eric. We can certainly mount another donation drive as we proved there is earnest commitment to the project on the last one.

Give it some time, work is being snatched up the second it is produced. The extended outage left a ton of machines dry, lots of catching up to do.

Probably several hours before any surplus is realized.
