1) Message boards : Number crunching : Windows 10 - Yea or Nay? (Message 1931084)

Greetings Cosmic,

And yeah, I keep seeing 2952664 show up all the time. That was one of the first ones to avoid as it was the first building-block to enabling 7 to be upgraded to 10. I like not having datamining and telemetry, thank you very much.

Well I'll be damned! I got that "update" installed on the 11th this month. WHY?!? Is this another plot by Micro$oft to get Windows 10 on PCs not yet running it?

I'll be re-building this PC with new 8th gen tech sometime next week and granted, I will be installing Windows 10. But yet another nefarious plot to get Windows 10 on PCs? The basic reason I will be installing Windows 10 is because it is a headache to get Win 7 installed on a Coffee Lake based PC, not to mention that Win 7 just was not built for the current generation silicone. And, not to mention that Win 7 support will die out in January 2020. And, Win 7 hasn't a clue what an M.2 NVMe drive is. I'm not sure about regular SSDs and whether Win 7 knows of them or not.

Damn Micro$oft and their damned arrogance! >_<

Siran


A regular SSD is just a hard drive to Windows 7, they read them just fine.

Sorry to read of your misfortune - I hope you are able to sort it out quickly and cheaply.


It is only my travel and go to school laptop, the desktop is still on Windows 7 and will most likely stay there.

My poor laptop got hit by the shoddy Winblows 10 update bug...

Restoring back to base currently.

The previous Panic Mod thread did not even make it through a full month...

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

Those same 9 minutes on Collatz would net me about 28,000 credits as opposed to 52 here.

Mikeworld is for sale, I downloaded the new 0.45b6 Lunatics file from arkayn's site instead.

Never paid anything there. Anyway DL from Arkayn site is fine too.

I went there, the domain is for sale at Mikeworld, there are no files there, unless the link is bad and I wound up in an alternet universe, so I dled from Arkayn after learning that.

I have not seen the "you don't have a valid version of V8" show since 10:34am, it's now 10:57am, so I think the problem is resolved, I deleted the old Lunatics 0.45b6 zip file from 2016 too.


All three sites have the newest installer now, Mikes, Lunatics and my site.

You need to get the latest Lunatics installer from
Mike's World
and go back through the installer choices and choose the MB SoG app which is the current fastest app for Windows and modern hardware.


Both Lunatics and my site also have the newest installer now.

We do have Richard on our side and long term posters such as he and I that are not giving up. But it is galling when Eric says that we need more computing power, and it is likely that if we sorted out this credit business we could get it!!


Yep, crunch 8 minutes here and receive, maybe 100 points. Crunch another project 8 minutes and receive 1000, 10000, or 20000.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm............

Hi
I have upgraded my boinc engine.
Unfortunately the new version did not resume the running task of the older version
How come ?
Moreover it created a new computer id. But when I asked to merge the 2 identical named computer it says there is no other computer to merge with ...
details says incompatible cpu
GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz
vs
GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz [Family 6 Model 42 Stepping 7]
Actually same computer, only Boinc vesion changed

Any help to resume the running tasks from the old version ?
Thanks


Did you use a different folder location for your BOINC data folder on the old version?

It sounds like it just did use the old folder.

While the RTS says there is 600,000 plus available, the GPU's are getting nothing.

This and much more on the next thread in the series......









(I can't complain as I have plenty of work for my two 1070's, but it is all Collatz)

Web site & forums barley working; missing more often than not. And when they are up, forum response is super slow- at best.
Add to that Scheduler responses are getting more erratic.

22/08/2017 14:44:52 | SETI@home | Scheduler request failed: Couldn't connect to server
22/08/2017 14:47:38 | SETI@home | Scheduler request failed: HTTP service unavailable


Not seeing any problems on my end, but I am a lot closer to the server than you.

Can anyone please assist me with this one:

8/21/2017 1:40:57 PM | | CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GTX 980 (driver version 384.76, CUDA version 9.0, compute capability 5.2, 4096MB, 3378MB available, 5288 GFLOPS peak)

cc_config.xml with this will fix it.

<cc_config>
    <log_flags>
        <file_xfer>1</file_xfer>
        <sched_ops>1</sched_ops>
        <task>1</task>
    </log_flags>
    <options>
        <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
    </options>
</cc_config>


If you already have a cc_config, just find that option and change the 0 to a 1
