Hello! Anyone like me that no new task available? I have nothing to work on!


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.

Yup, available work is dropping fast.

Too bad the WU cache/store is also broken, my GPU boxes will run dry within about 4-5 hours.

I approved the account fairly soon after you created the account.


Thank you Sir, I was just able to log-in now, don't know what happened before. :)

Onward with Panic Mode, ha ha.

[quote]as well as 1CPU core (thread) for each GPU WU being processed to keep those GPUs fed


Is this necessary with the low CPU CUDA80 apps?


. . That depends on whether you run with blocking sync on or off. With it on then you can get away with just the one free CPU core per 2 or 3 GPU tasks, with it off you will need 1 CPU core per GPU task plus one more CPU core free. With all the high thread count CPUs out there that should not be a problem. Even on my core 2 Duo that means no crunching at all on the CPU, but it works well. This is much the same as having sleep on or off running SoG. It is purely up to you, but there is a speed gain with it off.

Thanks to all for the help! Wish there was a wiki for this info!

I applied for an account over at Crunchers Anonymous a few weeks ago, but so far nobody has approved my request. :(

I am still unable to get any new files to work on. Is there still a problem or is it on my end??


There is still a problem, no news on what or how long.

Actually, Seti@Home is not much fun any more, with the outages, droughts, problems, speculations...and CreditScrew.
Sorry about being so pessimistic, folks.... ;-)

...Ghia...


I reluctantly admit to similar feelings.

Though I'm not quite ready to jump ship yet, any other Space/SciFi/Alien projects that more or less provide 24-7 work with an interactive project staff? (and Linux GPU support)

The other benefit to this, it's a modern/cheap card at 30 watts that increases your WU cache by 100.

Said in the most humble method possible:

If the WU cache/deadline scenario was revamped most of us could easily ride out these issues, my fast GPU boxes run out of work fast!

Being able to sustain my 1080/1070 boxes for 2 days would capture 95%+ of the server issues I'd bet.

In any case, big thanks to the guys banging their heads against the table trying to get all of this fixed up.

AMD patch is now in:

Looks like pretty much no gaming hit, so probably the same for us.

Phoronix has an initial bench set, with I/O getting hit pretty hard, might be some rough times ahead for Intel. The bug doesn't affect AMD but the initial patch hit all 64bit systems regardless of maker, I suspect AMD will submit a patch in the next day or two to fix that, if they've not already.

In any case if one wishes to continue on anyhow (on Linux), the nopti kernel parameter will revert the patch at boot. Windows details won't be out for a couple more weeks.

7-8 Tbar Triple updates didn't fetch any work either, on any of my machines.
