There is 1 WU available, let´s look who get it ;)

Perhaps the server works now


I just got ~20 wu's.
Don't give up!

Dang! I just down loaded wu's for Folding@home and they will take
hours to finish and not just 1 minute like the Milkyway wu's.

Message 40934 - Posted: 14 Jul 2010, 20:43:02 UTC - in response to Message 40925.  

Hello,

I must admit not usually being a complainer but having to baby sit this project through server downtime is a bit of a pain now
I would really like to just hook the system up leave it crunching and forget about it but now find myself having to check up on it way to often

more workunits per core has been discussed and ruled out the above suggestion of longer work units would cure two problems 1. less down time for our machines 2. less spin down down and spin up between work units
this idea also doesnt seem to be getting any attention for some reason

collatz doesnt quite give the same credit but seems online more often than here and dnetc seems to give more credit per gpu work done using longer work units

I'm stuck here just now because neither of the two projects above will work with my 3 ATI cards in crossfire but the longer this fiasco with the server carries on the more likely I am to set up another couple of machines splitting the cards so they each can work on the projects above

hopefully the hardware IT dept will announce on here there next set of upgrades soon so we can have a more consistant flow of work

best regards
Ian

Why do you need to babysit this project? Just set a backup project and let BOINC do its thing. Yes it is annoying when MW stops but with two other project that support ATI cards your ATI GPUs shouldn't run out of work.

I think the point is that the project has been down repeatedly and since the main application as well as the amount of current output heavily relies on fast gpus, then it should have been expected that the server load will be heavy also. Apparently, everybody knows the down is about feeder can't catching up, or validation too loaded or server load. This is not surprise. So if to continue with current equipment, there will be much more downs for sure.
My point is to indicate the lack of hardware so that proper adjustments are to be made.

Just as I am returning 2 rigs to Milkyway, do I detect another stoppage with ZERO work ready to send?

AAArrrgh!

Yup - same here.

I'll watch the speed that the server status page shows the "results in progress" declining.

What we are missing is a statement from the project stuff. Is somebody working for a solution?

Just thinking.

With the constantly malfunction server in mind, the never ending story of the 'Almost there' GPU page that turned up to be the 'Never there' GPU page and the currently ongoing project of the 'MilkyWay@home screensaver coming soon' that also seams to go the same way.

Would it not be just hilarious if the screensaver would come out when there was just one wu left to crunch :)

Hi,
this is a copy from the gpugrid forum, 'GPUGRID and ATI'

Hi,

We'll probably be in a position to start testing of an ATI application after SDK 2.2 is released in a month or so. It will require a 5800-series card initially.

MJH

It is dated 10th July. And they talk about OpenCL, which seems to be a source of problems until now. They say, its not stable.
And they posted, that 48xx-cards will not be supported. They lack some capabilities. But for the lucky owners of a 58xx card a new star is rising ...

I wish I had a 58xx card, so I could complain more often ;-))
Maybe better to sing for her..

On POETS Day there in no need to complain
as there is work elsewhere to gain.
Just move to Collatz and see,
or even to DNETC will take the p**.

Indeed, the lack of information this time is getting a tad tedious. Oh well, at least both Dnetc and Collatz are (at the moment) running.

What we are missing is a statement from the project stuff. Is somebody working for a solution?

Jup! There is so many more important things to do in life than constantly glaring at a server when The sun is shining :)

Correction -- Collatz is encountering one of their daily Comcast can't figure it out connectivity problems.

Milkyway servers are up, but most are not running nor have any work.

Collatz is not available due to ISP problems

FreeHAL seems to have gone away (ISP as well or ...)

Just leaves DNETC

Ho! Hum!

Sorta, I still don't have any work from here and I also have a pretty full cache of DNETC work to keep the 5830 warm.
