I’ve got an I-7 5820 over clocked to 4.1 GHz with a Radeon 7870 2 GB video card


I’m averaging right at 410 sec run time with 10.5-11 sec CPU time

I do have this in my APP_CONFIG file

<app>
<name>milkyway</name>
<max_concurrent>4</max_concurrent>
<cpu_usage>4</cpu_usage>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.45</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.5</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>

If I didn’t limit GPU time,the keyboard and mouse were almost unusable

this is part of my app_config.xml file for milkyway

<app>
<name>milkyway</name>
<max_concurrent>4</max_concurrent>
<cpu_usage>4</cpu_usage>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.45</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.5</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>

did this so that when two GPU apps are running, the mouse and keyboard are still usable
3) Message boards : News : New Nbody release tomorrow (Message 63565)

I've only had one of the new N-Body WUs complete

The rest reach 100% adn the keep "running" forever, until I abort them

I've also seen the behavior described in another thread. BOINC Manager shows N-Body using 12 CPUs (multi-threading), but Task Manger shows only one processor in use

At the same time BOINC Manager won't let any other WUs run because all teh CPUs are:"in use"

I have, as a result, stopped accepting N-Body WUs

"It just makes sense that BOINC is going to spend a LOT of time processing Milkyway work until Milkyway "catches up". "

And that has been one of my major gripes about the scheduler for quite a while

I really don't care what the total credits or recent averages are

When I set 33% resource share for a project, what I expect is 33% FROM THAT POINT FORWARD, until I change it

(I do agree that micromanaging tends to create a lot more headaches than it fixes, tho)

Both Adaware and Spybot tell me that the BitCoin Utopia download contains a Trojan,so much as I'd love to contribute, I think I'll pass
