1) Message boards : Problems and Help : trouble getting gpu to work with 1% cpu usage on 2 of 3 machines (Message 119203)
Posted 14 days ago by recoil44Project donor
Ok, I tried that just now. Same thing happens, it refuses to run the GPU tasks. I tried setting CPU usage to 12.5%, 12.6%, 50%, and 75%, still get the same ready to start, but it never does until it change the CPU usage to 100%.

I should mention that my findings were with hyper-threading ON and a "-t" value of cores not threads. If you're doing a "-t 8" on a 4/8 CPU that might be the issue. Try using "-t 4".

Here's the problem. On 2 machines, it refuses to run any GPU related applications. 1 machine it runs them perfectly fine with the same settings in BOINC. On the other two machines it says waiting to run or ready to run. But won't run them, I'm assuming because it thinks it will use more than 1% of the CPUs. If I set the CPU usage back to 100% it runs the GPU tasks as well as the multi-threaded app but when I goes to get new work, bam, 8 new CPU tasks again.


Bump it up to 1 full CPU (12.5 on a 4/8 or 25 on a 4/4) and try again.

If that doesn't work set for more than 1 but less than 2. This will still only download 1 CPU task as there aren't 2 full CPUs available but the extra partial CPU will allow for GPU tasks.

I found the more than 1 necessary when trying to run 2 tasks + GPU on a 6/12 CPU. 8.33% for 1 task worked but 16.66% did not, had to use 16.67%

Basically my brain saw "Historical Math Proof" and "Prime Numbers" so I posted the link.

I think you're right, if it was legit there would be a lot more press. Could be waiting for peer reviews or something, I haven't looked into this any further than skimming the article. I'm not a math guy but I know there are plenty in the PG community.

Put forth in 1908 by Finnish topologist Ernst Leonard Lindelöf, the Lindelöf hypothesis is a conjecture about the rate of growth of the Riemann zeta function on the critical line implied by one of the most famous unsolved problems related to prime numbers, the Riemann Hypothesis, popularly referred to as the Holy Grail of math.

"Was it the same cat?"


Hmmm... Déjà vu quote from the Matrix.

Did we find another?

One strategy is to switch to quick tasks, like SGS, before a challenge so that you have the minimum "lost time" when you switch to the challenge project at very beginning of the challenge.
Nothing worse than having an SoB start one hour before the start and then having to choose whether to abort it or let it finish.

Well I feel dumb now. lol
Time for bed, brain must have checked out a few hours ago.

I switched all my PC's to SGS yesterday (a bit early but I have some SLOW PC's)

A) The challenge is for SR5
2) Only tasks downloaded after the start time (and returned before the end) will count
8) Message boards : Number crunching : Badge suggestion - Probably not going to be a popular opinion... (Message 117827)
Posted 70 days ago by recoil44Project donor
What about like a diamond, platinum, or all of the "birthday stones". I think it would be more rewarding for something more unique than just "double" the current badges.

Too many colors makes it hard to follow. Once you start getting into shades and hues it's just all background noise. The double badges are very distinctive and stand out much better than a silver vs platinum would.

Thanks for the info, just started having issues myself.
Really hope this fixes it.
10) Message boards : Problems and Help : primegrid_cllr.exe stopped working (Message 117713)
Posted 74 days ago by recoil44Project donor
Welp, it did run a PSP successfully (55 hr run time) and continued to do a lot of MEGA since then...

But the big storm that blew through last night took out the HDD, so computer 505306 affectionately named "botnet" is now officially retired.
