2) Message boards : Number crunching : merge computers (Message 1898362)

Hi
I have upgraded my boinc engine.
Unfortunately the new version did not resume the running task of the older version
How come ?
Moreover it created a new computer id. But when I asked to merge the 2 identical named computer it says there is no other computer to merge with ...
details says incompatible cpu
GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz
vs
GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz [Family 6 Model 42 Stepping 7]
Actually same computer, only Boinc vesion changed

Any help to resume the running tasks from the old version ?
Thanks


Did you use a different folder location for your BOINC data folder on the old version?

It sounds like it just did use the old folder.

While the RTS says there is 600,000 plus available, the GPU's are getting nothing.

This and much more on the next thread in the series......









(I can't complain as I have plenty of work for my two 1070's, but it is all Collatz)

Web site & forums barley working; missing more often than not. And when they are up, forum response is super slow- at best.
Add to that Scheduler responses are getting more erratic.

22/08/2017 14:44:52 | SETI@home | Scheduler request failed: Couldn't connect to server
22/08/2017 14:47:38 | SETI@home | Scheduler request failed: HTTP service unavailable


Not seeing any problems on my end, but I am a lot closer to the server than you.

Can anyone please assist me with this one:

cc_config.xml with this will fix it.

<cc_config>
    <log_flags>
        <file_xfer>1</file_xfer>
        <sched_ops>1</sched_ops>
        <task>1</task>
    </log_flags>
    <options>
        <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
    </options>
</cc_config>


If you already have a cc_config, just find that option and change the 0 to a 1

Just sent you one.

Refresh this screen, top right corner- does it show "You have 1 unread message" (or similar)?
Click on the inbox & see if there's anything there from me in the last few minutes.


There have been noises about the email notification of PMs not working, but back at the beginning of this month (last time I got a PM) it came up in my BOINC Manager notices tab, and in the top right corner of most of these forum pages that I had an unread/received a new message.


I got a reply from Jason earlier this month as well.

The problem with the images is what is causing the work to error out as well.
Go here and go to the bottom, place a checkmark into "Skip data verification for image files"
Do the same thing at BETA.

Unofficial Windows 7/8.1 update workaround posted to GitHub

GitHub user Zeffy has created a patch that removes a limitation that Microsoft imposed on users of 7th generation processors, a limit that prevents users from receiving Windows updates if they still use Windows 7 and 8.1.

This limitation was delivered through Windows Update KB4012218 (March 2017 Patch Tuesday) and has made many owners of Intel Kaby Lake and AMD Bristol Ridge CPUs very angry last week, as they weren't able to install any Windows updates.


There is a link to the GitHub scripts in the article. Use at own risk. :^)

Caveat:

"The only downside of these solutions is you have to apply a new patch whenever wuaueng.dll gets updated," says Zeffy in his GitHub repo README. Fortunately, the entire task doesn't take long to complete.

Sounds like removing KB4012218 would be a better option.


Turning off updates is the option I picked.

How many hours does it take for a GTX 1080 to go trough the 100WU limit?


Roughly 6-7 hours on my machines that run 1080s (and 980s) at 3 WUs/Gpu

Around 7 hours (less than 5, over 9 depending on the work mix) for my GTX 1070s running 1WU at a time.

9-10hrs with my 1060's 1w/u at a time.

Cheers.

About 8 hours on my 1070/960 machine doing 2 at a time.

The old web page will be shut down by the end of this month.

Posting and accessing the web pages has gotten remarkably slower in the last 48 hours. Everything seems to be getting bogged down somehow.

The end is near.......................
The only end that is near is the end of this doggone long thread.

Okay, I will create a new one, I have been busy with College lately.
