Message 45638 - Posted: 20 Jan 2011, 16:02:09 UTC

So I was going through my WU's that were sitting around waiting for wingmen to report back and came across http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/show_host_detail.php?hostid=247482.

At first I thought perhaps it was a bug and the tasks would go down as they timed out / were reported. But it went from having 74xx last night to 76xx when I just checked... So obviously something is wrong here.

Not being sure what to do, I figured I'd post it here and someone else would know / a mod / project admin would see it or whatever.

Message 45643 - Posted: 20 Jan 2011, 17:36:58 UTC

In case you think it is, it's not my computer. Only reason I saw it was due to the fact that I was checking on who was crunching some of my older pendings.

Since the number of tasks they have is going up, while I'm still waiting for them to crunch something from the 13th... I'm wondering if it's some kind of error like the SETI Ghost WU's or something of the like.

But no matter if it's an error or someone cheating the system to get way more WU's than they should, it's not good.

Message 45645 - Posted: 20 Jan 2011, 19:34:16 UTC

I would like a computer like this one
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/show_host_detail.php?hostid=243441

10000 cpu's that would be nice to help me fill my cache.

Are computers like that expensive?

one of my wu's is pending "Completed, validation inconclusive", and I'm waiting on this computer, that is how I found it.

Up to 9000 wus now. Atleast it should stop at 10000. It is recieving wus every minute when it is requesting them. It seems like a downloading error. Total credit is at: 741,001 and doesn't seem to be jumping up.

hello,

how on earth do you convince boinc that any CPU has thousands of cores on it ?
i thought that was written in stone your pc only told the truth about it ?

best regards
Ian

Something is up with this. It seems more than just falsely adding processors.

155 seperate computers show up with nearly identical stats and they all list as having 10000 processors. There is 30 between each computers last contact, seems was setup to register as a new system so it doesn't show only one computer with all of the credit. 107 million with a rac of 770k.

You can see this thread as to having 10000 processors.

Hi Blurf, I know, OT, but nevertheless could you please also escalate issue of too old server build that makes impossible to set MW as backup project (ie. resource share of 0 is still invalid here)? Thank you.

Not sure how you get 10000 cpu's from a 980 but i have read in another forum that Blox is trying to schedule multiple instances on one rig to get round the limit of tasks in MW.
May be somthing to do with that as the link is to one of his rigs.


Here is a link to his page

Just look at that idiot:
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/hosts_user.php?userid=100412

154 boxes that have been hard-coded to show 10.000 cores, all with 4(!) HD 5800-class GPUs. Having 154 i7-980s and 616 HD 5850s should be enough for everybody (provided they have more than 640k memory)

I believe they are all the same system being they all have the exact specs. Also they all have a low rac (individually) for having a GPU. Added together it makes sense, 770k rac.

Haha, no not the same, "Mr Nemo" actually has a rather large number of computers running at his "house".

Well, I see I stand corrected. My gosh that is such a site to see. It seems as though "Nemo" is carrying along through with the name he stands for. Strength and ability, reliability and resolve. (I've used "Nemo" as a logon name for work since the mid 80's and still use it today as a gaming logon to several accounts I have) and to see that the name has become, well, almost to say stardom, I am beside myself in looking at the two links you posted. I see myself kneeling and praising, "Nemo", "Nemo" , "Nemo" with hands outstretched and bowing down, over and over again and again. It's just an awesome thing to see.

Now, if I win the lotto any time soon, then there will be some competition rolling.

Could it be one -or more- actual and 153 -or less- virtual machines? All on the same actual host(s)? And clogging up tasks by doing so? just my 2 cents...
