1) Questions and Answers : Windows : New version of Win10 not running BOINC (Message 1860322)
Posted 14 days ago by Profile BilBg
Post:
"BOINC does not start" means "boinc.exe is not in the list of running processes" (as seen in Windows Task Manager, Process Explorer, ...)
"no engaging the screen saver" does not mean BOINC is not running.
BOINC screensaver (boinc.scr + boincscr.exe) only shows some pictures, it is not really needed for the processing
("processing" is done by SETI@home applications which are started by boinc.exe)

Post:
So its that it? I just let it run and do not participate directly?

Practically - yes
Unless you want to read and post on forums, e.g. Number Crunching


What are the credits?

They are like points in game, you get them for "Valid tasks":

3) Questions and Answers : Windows : "Error while computing" (Message 1857657)

Post:
I didn't realize that all the GPU choices were checked.

That doesn't matter.
If you don't have NVIDIA or ATI/AMD GPU BOINC will not ask for such tasks/applications.
Now, with unchecked NVIDIA and ATI, you may see 'nag' Messages in Event Log that "tasks for NVIDIA are available but your Preferences are set to not accept them" (or similar wording)

Post:
Just uncheck "Use Intel GPU" in SETI@home preferences
(And of course check "Use CPU")
5) Questions and Answers : Windows : How to activate SETI screensaver on Win 10? (Message 1857372)

Post:
What to do? Any ideas?

This was already answered:
"the only application that has the graphics application is the CPU application. So only when work runs on the CPU do you see the Seti graphics"

So do you have CPU tasks Running?

Post:
CTRL+Shift+F



Just set/check any Log Flag (e.g. benchmark_debug) and cc_config.xml will be created.

Then edit cc_config.xml by Notepad to change 0 to 1 in line:
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>

Restart BOINC
8) Message boards : Number crunching : SETI@home v8.19 Windows GPU applications support thread (Message 1833712)
Posted 2 Dec 2016 by Profile BilBg
Post:
There is 8.21 apps deployed for testing on beta.
Please verify your observations regarding excessive memory usage on all 3 app's flavours.
...
Lets see what app flavour your hardware select on beta before moving further on this topic.

Not possible to "see what app flavour your hardware select on beta" - I run BOINC 6.10.58 so run "beta" only by app_info.xml (else I don't get any tasks)
So for "all 3 app's flavours" I need exact file-names to make (by hand) Download URLs

10) Message boards : Number crunching : SETI@home v8.19 Windows GPU applications support thread (Message 1833699)
Posted 2 Dec 2016 by Profile BilBg
Post:
Have semi-problem to checkpoint (every ~3 minutes, not at <1 minute as is set) on AR:
4.195846
...
and in BOINC for AR 4.195846 (the WU is paused in BOINC)

(now BOINC is on r3578)
For this is Fixed:
- checkpoints every ~50 seconds
- <prog> almost == <fraction_done> for all duration of the run

Not fixed (something I forgot to report earlier):
- On 'Snooze' or any other pause of such task - the process waits ~10 seconds before exiting
-- in this "slow exiting" the app don't write to stderr.txt the usual:
GPU device sync requested... ...GPU device synched
Termination request detected or computations are finished. GPU device synched, exiting...

(this "GPU device sync" is written when pausing VLAR tasks)

2) Checkpoints problem
On "Very VHAR" tasks this app almost do not checkpoint on my computer

MB8_win_x86_SSE2_OpenCL_ATi_HD5_r3557

Have NO problem to checkpoint on AR:
1.389965
2.598181
2.725368 (maybe checkpoints every ~1.5 minutes)

Have semi-problem to checkpoint (every ~3 minutes, not at <1 minute as is set) on AR:
4.195846

HAVE problem to checkpoint on AR:
12.638138
103.055695

I will try offline test with r3578 for AR 103.055695 (I have the WU)
and in BOINC for AR 4.195846 (the WU is paused in BOINC)

I made a short test to train myself how to record RAM usage.
(longer will be when I have more time
- Note/Edit: this post was written ~20 h ago and was on "Preview" when Internet stopped; Now longer test is running and I post this)

For this short test results are almost the same for default 15ms (empty mb_cmdline.txt), -tt 5 and -tt 60

If that is true wouldn't it also "poison" the MB tasks?

I couldn't get Windows to update either

From W10Privacy Changelog:
http://www.winprivacy.de/deutsch-start/versionshistorie/
2.1.1.0 (20.03.2016)
- The search for Windows updates is now also possible via Commandline: With the parameter "/ s checkupdates", W10Privacy can be started in unattended mode so that it searches for updates afterwards (if necessary, The search for updates necessary prerequisites are set by Gui). If updates are detected, the well-known window is displayed in which the updates to be installed can be selected.
- The search for Windows updates via W10Privacy is now done faster, since updates are no longer checked on the Fake WSUS, but directly on "Windows Update". However, in networks that actually provide a WSUS server, this option is disadvantageous, so the search for updates can be activated with a "Fake WSUS". A "standard user" should not select this option, the search takes longer.
...

This (maybe) means that W10Privacy have its own "search for Windows updates", I wonder if that will be any different than the "standard"...

- Some tasks seem to not grow or do it very slowly -

Now I think that (all?) VLAR tasks "grow" very slow in the last 1/3 of processing.
Didn't look very closely to the exact % but if VLAR task is restarted at ~70-75% it starts with ~96 MB RAM usage and slow (10-20 KB/s) "grows".

I now watched blc4_2bit_guppi_57424_45606_HIP73165_OFF_0026.19637.416.17.26.219.vlar   ar=0.011183
- restarted from 73% at 96 MB and go to 99% at 114 MB (% as shown by BoincTasks)

Going back to Windows 7 soon if this carries on

If you are "determined" to brake this Windows 10

Try if stopping driver updates by this 2 programs work and can be reversed
(I seem to remember some very old reports that once you disable updates by O&O ShutUp10 this can't be reversed)

But even that was done on 730 before...so 1050 should be like a Space shuttle compared to Appolo!

Apollo can go to the moon, Space shuttle can't ...
So I'm not sure which is a greater achievement?
