Somethings going on as I got a MW unit a few minutes ago...only 1...and its long gone and done now.

Congats on your crunching - it's now 20,000,000 MW for me.


catching up ;)




Slow down there Ice or your gonna pass me soon...

Congrats to everyone posting a milestone

Should hit 20 million myself tonight

I've had 3 systems hang up also...and I'm not running any other project.

Do you think the shorter WU that Travis took care of was causing this?

My ATI has not come up for air for over 2 hrs.



I hear that as all my boxes have not run under 40 plus WU since Travis did the tweak over 2 hrs ago...

5 dual quads running at 40 WU plus constantly and the rest are always full also...

What did u do?

Might be early but sure looks like a fix that worked.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention, it's my error (first week on BOINC, please be patient haha). Can you tell me if there is a problem with ps_sgr_235_3s_5?

Cheers,
John Vickers


My vista system is erroring all these right now

I tend to think that work requests are being dropped somewhere at the MW end. I changed my resource share and it says the next time you hit update it will update the numbers in BOINC Manager - which didn't occur on the next update, nor the next, nor the next. After about 20 minutes it updated....



That's because one of the changes they made to the standard BOINC scheduler is that if a request comes in and there is no work in the scheduler local queue, no DB query is issued.

It only happens now if an assignment is actually made or a task is reported.

Curious when the scheduler was changed ... as this has been happening on my end for weeks.

This is what I remember Travis posting....

To be honest, before people started using scripts to hammer the server, we were getting around 9-11 workunits a second. Now we're seeing around 6-7 workunits a second.

Doesn't look like less to me...

Only because it would be really fun to whack you with the ban stick.

One thing thats going on and maybe most are not aware. The Top 2 teams in Boinc are battling it out for bragging rights on MW before the the project freezes the old stats. This alone along with the super fast Gpu processing is making an impact on the WU's available. Servers alone have been know to crash when top teams go after it. Again the projects involved are the BIG winners here with the amount of science being done. Myself I run 5 V-8 systems "40 cpu cores. The lesson I'm learning here on MW...is the stage being set for the future Dist computing and that is the Gpu processor. Scripts or no scripts...things are advancing and changing. Gpu's are gonna change the future like it or not....the decision we all are going to have to make in time is do we want to be a part of it. Want to try to run me down for using a Gpu...fine...thats your choice....want to run me down for doing a script...fine thats your choice. Can tell ya one thing for sure...technology will always move forward.

Hope all here are having a great Memorial Day....because without it WE couldn't have the right to have this freedom of expression...

Post away!!

The real winner here is the project!! More science is being done than EVER before.


True, but some of that additional amount is going to other projects because instead of running scripts, some of us just download work from elsewhere... ;-)


Then thats even better then...as other projects gain more science being done along with MW.

Gotta run and have a great Memorial Day weekend....be safe1

By implementing a back-off routine like you suggested will not produce more work. It will only spread the work out a bit more between hosts, but not much. As those with larger farms will still be requesting more often.


At this point, I'd actually be in favor of that so at least the continual complaining might be less, or at least it would be different...


The fix is to generate more work, or generate longer WU's for the GPU. Hmmm.

Maybe we should have a GPU only project.

Never at anytime did anyone promise anyone a full cache of work. If you feel like you are not getting "your share" then attach to a different project or a couple of different projects.


I tried advocating that to people who want to bang on the server. At least at one point in time it appeared as though you agreed.

Honestly, I hope the GPU project gets running soon so that you all (third person) can compete with yourselves and script all you want...
