Message 53991 - Posted: 8 Apr 2015, 10:36:31 UTC

I have 5 different hosts running on SETI Beta but they all seem to differ in what version of Astropulse they run.

Most will run SSE, SSE2 or both, which is definitely quicker than the base Astropulse, but one of my hosts (http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/show_host_detail.php?hostid=71901) only ever runs the slow Astropulse.

I have tried aborting the Astropulse units, as I read in someone's post that this may help, but still it never runs SSE or SSE2. I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling BOINC with no success.

Is there anything I can do to correct this myself or is this a setting somewhere within the project?

Cheers

Basically, your host has an APR for the Stock AP 7.00 app, but doesn't have one for the SSE or SSE2 apps,
If you continue aborting the 7.00 Wu's, the scheduler will have to send SSE and SSE2 work as the 'Max tasks per day' of the 7.00 app will be too low (It's at 19 now).

Application details for host 71901

Thanks for the advice Claggy

Will this only work if I receive 19+ workunits and abort them all in one day?
