Posted 26 Feb 2021 by Dark Angel
This user has attempted to take the captaincy of our team. We do not know who they are, they are not one of us and tried to take the captaincy the first day they joined the team. Is there any way they can be barred for misconduct?

Posted 25 Jun 2020 by Dark Angel
I have seen multiple comments regarding a doubling of run time on the new work units compared to the CUDA55 units. I am seeing the same thing, though the variation seems to be from double to triple the run time.
This isn't encouraging and suggests the new app is poorly optimised.
If this matter could be passed up to the devs for revision that would be much appreciated by the volunteers.

Wed 12 Jun 2019 07:37:35 AEST | Asteroids@home | [error] Error reported by file upload server: Server is out of disk space

Isn't the new server supposed to be here by now?

According to this page you run a TR since june 2012 (!) and it got hundreds of sse2, sse3 and avx tasks:
This can't be true, can it?

I suggest to detach and reattach the TR to get a fresh computer ID.

Nonetheless avx is not necessarily faster than sse(x) as an optimised app also needs to be aligned to the CPU's cache layout etc.

Old post but this deserves a reply.

The OP probably is running a machine which has had the HDD moved to newer hardware without an operating system reinstall. This is quite common when upgrading Linux based machines.

This machine has never seen anything except SSE3 CPU units and Cuda55 GPU units.
My Ryzen 7 2700 (non X) rig is the same. Never done anything but SSE3.

I have two Ryzen 7 rigs that haven't seen an AVX unit, only ever SSE3. Are there no AVX units being produced any more?

Posted 24 Jun 2018 by Dark Angel
It costs the project actual money to provide the servers and network connection, and like most oragnisations they will be paying for the resources that best fit their needs. A sudden, unexpected influx of demand on those resources can be quite problematic and even crash the project servers if enough static reserve or elastic capacity isn't being paid for. That's on top of the issue of work availability to cope with a significant but short term increase in production.

I'm disappointed that FB didn't give the project a bit more warning so they could schedule the required resources. The last FB Sprint, at the ODLK1 project, brought the project servers to their knees with the extra load, requiring them to be upgraded at least once and possibly twice over the few days the Sprint ran. I'm sure every project is happy to get more work done, but that's no reason to not be considerate about it.

Unfortunately I think you're right.

A question: do the Formula BOINC organisers give the project any warning? That would be fair and reasonable given the sudden increase in demand for work as well as the sudden drop off of same at the end of the event.

Hi Kyong, the same problem appears to be happening again.
