Is it normal for MW ?


Yes, both messages are perfectly normal.

In the BOINC Manager:
Click on the Advanced tab; then
Click on Preferences ... ; then
When the dialoge box opens click on the "disk and memory usage" tab.

Change "Use at most __________ Gigabytes disk space" to a larger number than you currently have.

I was running a GTX260 on Windows 7, now exclusively running Seti.

Not sure about Linux, but I was runing my ati GPUS on suse for a trial until I reverted. Can't see why cuda would not work with linux.

I run a GTX260 24/7 on Seti. it is no big deal. I needed to adjust my cache to 4 days to assure constant work, but that's no big deal.

As to DnetC, I find it makes an excellent backup project for me. I am running it now on two, twin 5790 computers. One 5790 and 4770 computer. And one single 5790 computer, so it is pretty adaptable from my point of view.

OK must go MW just downloaded on one of the boxes, so lets see if I can get the others back!

Since I live on the other side of the planet, I think the project admin should give me a big RED button to push whenever this happens, so the servers reset.

At least three of my babies switch automatically over to the backup project now.

First, the easy part: As far as your tasks go, that is a completely normal response. When you wingman returns their task you will get the credit for it.

Setting the resource share only affects the CPU so does not have the same effect on a GPU task.
There are other threads you can look at to see how to reduce the priority ranking for BOINC as far as the GPU goes. Otherwise the easiest is to right click on the BOINC icon and snooze the GPU part while you need the screen, then let things run when you are not abut.

One day. Boinc Stats aggregates project info, and will flush the buffers once per day, so you will see it there as at tomorrow, with the info being up to one day old depending upon when each specific project updates.

Travis you selfish bas!ard, you snuck out out of the building to have some sort of a life didn't you ?

OK Matthew, kicking the server really is not working so well these days. I suggest you try kicking the computer lab staff!
If they are bigger than you, feel free to use a bat :P

/OK back to my live ROV feeds.

Hi Dreamer

I agree with you, color is important.

Nope, the server is up. It just does not have anything to send out. I too have no work!

Great work Shane:

I tend not to use screen savers myself, but I appreciate the effort you are putting into this project.

Question: I run up to four GPU's at a time, so how would this affect the screen saver, if at all?

Kind Regards
David

I've got these two that have been waiting 90 days to validate. What do I win?

Will I need to detach to get the DB to clear these??

Thx

Do your 2 from 21 Apr beat my 1 from 9 Apr?



Such impatience!
My two from 5 April beat both of you!
87978578

Thanks Travis and Crunch3r.

Everything OK now.

So lets hope I don't have a power outage in the next ten days while I am away skiing.

I was hoping the server was going slow, but here we are this morning:

25/06/2010 10:41:34 a.m. Milkyway@home update requested by user
25/06/2010 10:41:35 a.m. Milkyway@home Fetching scheduler list


And . . . .
. . . . . .. . . . .
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . nothing.

My other crunchers continue to operate normally, Boinc Manager is doing its part of the attach process, and, numerous people are having the same problem, so it seems to be a config problem at the MW server end.

I have detached and attempted to reattach on one of my crunchers.

The Boinc part works OK, and then I get the following msg:
Fetching configuration file from http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/get_project_config.php
and then nothing: The project shows in projects but no account name, Team, or stats.

The MW folder is empty so nothing is downloading. I know of one other user with the same issue.
BOINC 6.10.57, on Win Vista 64.

Air conditioning!

Seriously, temps here get into the 40's here during summer, and while uncomfortable for me, the boxes themselves run from the winter low to mid eightys to mid ninetys. I only used the aircon for a few really hot days.
