1) Message boards : Number crunching : More tasks in cache (Message 1933947)

anything downloaded or uploaded between 1AM and 5AM does not count towards my quota, those are "free" hours. that is why I was wondering if someone somewhere would do something about this. at least give us a 36 hours worth of tasks based on our few days of crunching.

the only feasible option it seems is to have a separate ISP for this machine with terrible but open quota package... not sure this is a cost I can justify on top of electricity spent running this rig.

Hello fellow crunchers,
I've got a rig with 3x1070 on linux running 24/7, and lately discovered that it is consuming a good chunk of my humble monthly quota. I do get unlimited quota between 1AM and 5AM and I've set the scheduler to download/upload during that time only. And the cache to 10 days.

Well whatever I am getting during those hours is usually processed by 10AM. Is there a way around this?

yes i am not new here but i have been away for a year... i was actually missing some packages, that's why it chose CUDA60. Now i am running SoG, with the above cmdline, and suffering from severe lag as well...

this is what the server is sending me, i haven't modified anything... am i missing something? shouldn't I be getting SoG?

edit: needed to install nvidia-opencl-icd package, now i am getting opencl.

to the file mb_cmdline-8.01-cuda60.txt...

still suffering from severe lag... any suggestions?

i have been away for a while from this project that I cannot seem to remember where to put the cmdline... and i cannot find any hints so far

edit: figured that out, in the cmdline text file under /var/lib/boinc-client (for debian anyway)

It's a good idea to switch back to the iGPU and use the additional card. It is getting cold here... Now I'll have to get over my laziness and get to the back of the tower

Hi,
Is there a way to use 2 out of 3 GPUs only? Running seti on the GPU connected to the monitor is creating lots of lag (linux).

So I am wondering if there is a way to set a preference for the main GPU to stop during computer use (in preferences) while the other two are crunching.

Or completely disable the main GPU and leave the other 2 running?

nice setup... congrats!

it would be better to remove the lower fans and keep one on the right hand side instead of having it under the GPU card... you're pushing air directly into the GPU fans while its fans are pushing air out...

16) Message boards : Number crunching : Linux CUDA 'Special' App finally available, featuring Low CPU use (Message 1855527)

Post:
for top you can use q or esc i think instead of breaking it with ctrl+c... you can also check htop, it is much nicer and still a command line.

for copy & pasting, i prefer to setup my terminals to copy on selection. so whatever you select is copied and get used to the shortcuts:
ctrl+insert = copy
shift+insert =paste

now you have use for the right hand side ctrl :)

now that you've got everything running, how satisfying is it to get things done under linux? :)

the law here is very simple: it's the fault of the person with the most wheels (humans > bike > car > truck > ... )

so let's say someone decided to take a leap of faith, and landed on your parked car, guess who's at fault? as I said, very simple :)

He wanted to become a pavement pattie and your car was in the way. So you are at fault!?


yes :)
