1) Message boards : Number crunching : MilkyWay not up loading new workunits (Message 59170)
Posted 29 Jun 2013 by bill
I'm still having a problem on two of my three machines (ID: 518375 and ID: 518536). I have to keep hitting "update" every hour to get any new WU's and even then I only receive 5 or 6 which I burn right through. My global settings are all for 5 days + 1.

If it hasn't been suggested, try changing your cache settings to 5 days

+ max additional work buffer 0.01 . That way it will ask

for work more often.

OK Matt, if you're still interested, your new app takes a little over 17 minutes to complete 1 opencl wu. This is with Seti@Home working on both cpus (e6600@2.4GHz) with Folding@home working also. Windows XP32, Nvidia driver 206.63.

Work Unit ID's

96320251 96700941 96267840 96230973 96230950

96230884 96230837 96230800 96230742 96230692

96230581 96230311 96018649

Shouldn't these have disappeared by now?

The people who are willing to DONATE their time, money, and resources to THIS project more (snippage)

Are owed nothing by this, or any other, project. You should look up what "donate" means. Or do you have a contract that states otherwise?

Thanks for the update Travis. Not every Boinc project has somebody conscientious enough to keep their volunteers notified of the problems and solutions.
10) Message boards : Number crunching : Extreme (inaccurate) time estimates...? (Message 42546)
Posted 4 Oct 2010 by bill
I'd like to know why BOINC will run work units that aren't due for days ahead
of work units that are due much sooner on the same project; sometimes even running the units with further in the future due dates high priority rather than the work units due in the near future.

"Yes it does, but there is not currently a fermi app for Milky way so you will need to wait a little while.."

So there is no way to tell the app that it's an older card and force it to work like the ATI 58XX cards, like you can with Seti@Home?

BTW, thanks to all for the prompt answers.

Does the new Geforce 460 do double precision? What kind of performance should I expect from it?]
