Posted 23 days ago by Profile S@NL Etienne Dokkum
with current observations due to lack of AP's I'm expecting the same drop off I'm getting :

with AP only my GPU crunches ~1200 / hour while Credit New only grants me ~420 / hour for MB (running 2 instances on a "moderate" GTX660)

That's about 35% so I should say Sten will eventually level off on about ~ 12500 RAC.

(etit) after a low of course with all the MB's still waiting to be validated, so 8500/9000 wouldn't be a terrible guess...

In my case a MB only pais 28% compared to an AP so I guess Sten will open his 'chute at 9800 feet !

Wait, no one is whining about the lack of APs.


guess everyone's cache is still full... Or : the idea of "they will fix it eventually" finally sunk in.

ready to send buffer nearly back to 0, with all the shorties being served to us the servers can't meet demand. I can't recall seeing a number over 200k since Saturday...

FYI, I sent E-Mail to David, Eric, Matt & Jeff - because SSP frozen & UL not possible.

Why it's a Saturday!!

Monday will be quite soon enough.

Why do people expect to have work 24/7 and the staff "on call the same"

If there is work, fine if not fine.

Also I suspect the Co-lo would not do anything unless asked by the owners of the servers, so the very idea that we should be able to contact the Co-lo is totally laughable!!

Relax people, if it's not about RAC two, three, four days downtime means nothing.


agreed, yes : I too like it to have a high RAC but sometimes people tend to forget what Seti is really about... Science and hoping to someday E.T.

There is life beyond this VOLUNTEER project isn't there?!

well, I hope they fix it with a simple reboot... otherwise with only MB's lots of folk will be on their back up projects by tonight.

Yep all uploads are stuck again. If I run out it backup time.


...and with all the shorties being fed to us that's another problem on top !

Did we just lose uploads again?


Dead, very dead....


it's still afternoon at Berkeley so probably there will be someone around to kick the servers ... Just let it run and come morning here we'll see what happened.

No stats dump for 3 days running now... But as AP's are flowing really nothing serious to complain about.
12) Message boards : Number crunching : No of Cores? (Message 1463848)
Posted 95 days ago by Profile S@NL Etienne Dokkum
The latter is an interesting question which has been probably answered before but I'll ask it anyway :

I'm thinking of building a machine with 2 GPU's on a MB with only 2 cores. So to free 2 cores I'm left with no CPU crunching. Is it possible to adjust some settings in Boinc or the app info to make it possible only to ask GPU work. This is kind of an old rig, but it has 2 PCIE 16x ports on the MB and 8GB ram so it would be possible in my opinion...

Comments or suggestions please ?

I wonder whats happend of late. After the colo move we were running pretty smooth. But the last few weeks has seen one thing after another. Is it hardware or software problems.

I do miss Matts weekly tech posts.

Still not able to upload anything so no problems with invalid WU's at least... Late at night here in Europe so maybe things will be resolved in the morning.

goodnight!

Well, it's clearly obvious that the holiday season is over for at least some people...
So much for "...tis the season to be jolly," or such ideas as, goodwill to all men.


+1 happy new year, relax, take a load of...the project will run again. Maybe not in a couple of hours but let's wish the guys at the lab a happy new year too and don't bash it because there's no work. They have families too and January 1st is a national holiday isn't it ?

yep, must be a heads up from the boys at the lab for us crunchers...

Guess the people hanging around the number crunching forum must almost all have the gold 1% badge.

I think there has been little to complain about over the last months server wise so two crashes in one week can do...

Fingers crossed this isn't a bad omen of things to come *searching for the duct tape again *
