Message 42215 - Posted: 17 Sep 2010, 16:17:05 UTC

While I've now had a couple of de_nbody_model1 tasks complete successfully, I've also had a set of de_nbody_test tasks abort after about 20 min processing on a core of my Q6600 - all "exceeded elapsed time limit 1071.326130".

Are thest "test" tasks set with such a short timelimit purposefully ??

Version 6 has the histogram bug (and maybe something else).
You should update to the actual version 7

Message 42289 - Posted: 21 Sep 2010, 17:53:04 UTC - in response to Message 42218.  

Still running the 0.23 CPU+GPU app., didn't even know, a new version with different exe- files (nbody.exe), is now used.

From what I read on this forum thread, should I change/UPGrade, the app. I now run?
Will read a (little) more, in the meantime.

No need to stop your 'old' MW app.
Milkway_nbody is a separate search/app, that can run parallel to the old app; look for the app_info.xml addition shown in different threads.
Milkway_nbody is CPU only for now, GPU is awaited to come 'soon'.

Hi Travis,

For the (large) number of us running anonymous platform for the optimized apps for the original MW, can you make the application list link to the apps for download? Unless, can we go stock all the way now and get SSE2/SSE3 support on the main app? I had to hand-craft the URL to get to the download directory, unless I'm missing something due to the web front end redesign.

Thanks,
Marty
