I once was a cruncher like you, then I took an arrow to the knee.

Message 1205546 - Posted: 13 Mar 2012, 22:45:03 UTC - in response to Message 1205538.  

I would recommend anybody trying for the new apps to set their cache size to a small value so they can catch problems before their cache fills up with stuff that won't crunch properly.

Thanks - I changed everything else, and forgot that one. Good advice, and timely.

Well, I'm set up and ready. The splitters may be running, but the tasks haven't hit the fan yet. Who suggested that stupid 5-minute backoff, anyway?

(and before anyone answers - yes, it was me)

Oh, a question Richard: They aren't releasing MB v7 at the same time, are they?

NEWS before it happens:

Email from Eric:

The big issue is if they [optimised app users] return their results before any from the official clients have been returned, it's hard to tell what will happen. I'd recommend that people using optimized apps turn off astropulse v6 processing for a couple weeks. I'll post a news item to that effect.

The reason being, that they aren't certain until it happens whether opt app users will get any credit. There was a bug at Beta which experienced testers will know all too well - zero credit. It cleared itself without intervention after a couple of months (slow turnover at Beta), but nobody quite knows why.

You have been warned: crunch stock, or (possibly) crunch for zero credit.

Well, there aren't any opt V6 released, so what else than stock could be run?

Now that wasn't supposed to happen, as far as I know. We were expecting Astropulse v6, but not that.

If I may ask, what software are you running - stock or optimised? Are these new tasks, or existing tasks as well?

We expect the AP_v6 knobs to work, once the splitters are up to speed. But if you look back to the Applications link I posted a few messages ago - too busy to remake it - you'll see there are no programs listed under SETI v7. Until they appear (they may have done so already, for all I know) the SETI v7 knob won't work.

Won't an attempt to crunch astropulse v6 pop up with a message along the lines of: your app_info.xml doesn't contain [something or other] for astropulse v6?

Does this mean that the 6.01 Beta, released 3 days ago, is over already ?? What's the point if it is released to Main ?

How does one run opti apps for GPU MB and stock apps for CPU AP ?

We did it Dave. They only needed us to do a couple of stock 6.01's, without failure to release them here. We're heroes Dave, heroes I tell you.

LOL

Yes, it should, but strange things happen. The live news is up on the front page now, and Eric's wording there is more careful and precise than this initial draft.

Thanks Sten, I was hoping my 4 validated units, so far, were enough to push us over the edge. (LOL)

Now the dilemma is what to do with all the others running and waiting to run.

Maybe I will do nothing and just watch the boards for a few days.
