1) Message boards : Number crunching : Attach project to 2nd localhost BOINC client? (Message 1463350)
Posted 199 days ago by Profile S@NL - eFMer - www.efmer.eu/boinc
Example of a manual how to make a 2nd localhost client: >postid=1377379<.

Read this as well: http://efmer.com/forum/index.php?topic=856.0

This feature is probably only intended for testing, it seems to work.
I use it mainly for testing.

You may want to leave the console in place for testing, so you can see what's going on.

Both folders should have <allow_multiple_clients>, but this should only be needed if there is a cc_config.xml present.
But it doesn't hurt.

If everything fails check the log in the BOINC folder.

But can you connect to the second client using BoincTasks?

I'm not planning an update.

Do you have any idea what the correct entries should be ?

T.A.

Check the state file, the names should match.

Will this allow VLARs to be processed on GPUs?

It does.

Posted 421 days ago by Profile S@NL - eFMer - www.efmer.eu/boinc
If you are running V 6.60
Please go back to V 6.50, or at least check C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\eFMer\TThrottle and remove the crash folder.
It can cause a low disk space problem.

Fred, before you spend time on the options, might want to consider that what you now have is not working consistently. I've had VLARs almost all the time since v7 came out, but have had only 3 instances where the current feature kicked in and suspended them. Once was on BOINC startup and all VLARS present were suspended. The other two times were while the task(swere running, and only the running tasks were suspended, not the others on hand.

I'm just looking for a version where it's disabled. I wouldn't use an option to abort, and I wouldn't want an option to suspend because thzt blocks work fetch.

Wait for 1.48 today or tomorrow.

Posted 421 days ago by Profile S@NL - eFMer - www.efmer.eu/boinc
My opinion on this is allowing an auto-abort of VLARs is not a good thing for the project.

Yep everything should go as planned.
But on most cards, VLARs cause some serious problems.
That's why I added an optional suspend and abort in the new 1.48.

To make things clear this is only don for WU's that are marked as vlar in the file name and are intended for the CPU.

Only GPU tasks are effected not CPU tasks.

I made a new BoincTasks thread so that more users will notice it.

It is a feature going back to BoincTasks 1.40.
Was mentioned in the change log and is logged in BoincTasks.

As of Version 1.40 BoincTasks suspends VLAR's on the GPU.
This is logged in the BoincTasks log.

This got some users confused, as of SETI V7 VLAR's are send on a regular basis.

I'm working on 1.48 and will switch this off in the default installation.
It will be optional in the settings xml as suspend or abort and do noting as default.

1.48 should be there within 24 hours.
Sorry for the confusion.

Might explain all those other reports of VLARs suspended by user, when the user didn't suspend them.
Need to check if they're running BOINC tasks as well.

But the VLAR's should'n be there in the first place.

When I started seeing a lot of .VLARs I went digging for my copy of the old BOINCrescheduler64 and tried it with no success. I can't even recall where I got it or who's project it was but I wonder if it could be updated to shift all the CUDA .VLARs to the CPU in today's environment.
John

Me...
The rescheduler isn't recommended any more, it causes a lot of problems server side.
A lot of vlars are send with V7.
BoincTasks automatically suspends any vlar's it finds.
I then remove them manually from my computers.

This boinc_tasks crashes every few seconds... I have to delete the crash dump to get it going again , and then it crashes again...

Can you send my a couple of dump files.
Because I don't have any known problem with 1.46 and I like to fix your problem.

There are a lot of places like Dropbox to upload the dump file(s).

What BoincTasks version are you using?

[url]gui_rpc_auth.cfg should be there.
But you can create one with Notepad.
It's as simple as it gets. Type in a password in the file and store it.

This explains things: http://www.efmer.eu/boinc/boinc_tasks/manual.html

Run Find Computers and select Scan address range.

That way you can see the IP address of the other computer.
In the column BOINC there is a text what is in it.
It should give you Yes, Not connected. (Not connected because you have no valid password)

Posted 437 days ago by Profile S@NL - eFMer - www.efmer.eu/boinc
... Performance is said to be around 30 percent faster than a GeForce GTX 780 ...

30 percent faster than itself, that's impressive. I shall buy one.


It's appears to be a typo within the article. My reading of the tea leaves is that it should read 30 percent faster than a GeForce GTX 680 ...

The 680 and 770 should be the same card.
I read someone flashed new software into the 680 and got a 770.

Simply remove the key (folder) HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\eFMer\TThrottle64\floatingdlg
Or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\eFMer\TThrottle\floatingdlg

Next move the window back in place.

You know you can set a hot key, to hide/show the window.
