1) Message boards : Number crunching : Badge suggestion - Probably not going to be a popular opinion... (Message 117827)
Posted 19 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.

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.

Just add it to what you already have.
Change max_concurrent to the most you'll run at one time (or delete it). Change ngpus to whatever fraction to equal the number you want to run (0.5 = 2, 0.33 = 3, 0.25 = 4 etc.)

<app_config> <app> <name>pps_sr2sieve</name> <max_concurrent>2</max_concurrent> </app> <app_version> <app_name>pps_sr2sieve</app_name> <plan_class>cudaPPSsieve</plan_class> <avg_ncpus>0.01</avg_ncpus> <ngpus>0.5</ngpus> </app_version> <app> <name>gfn13</name> <fraction_done_exact/> </app> <app_version> <app_name>gfn13</app_name> <plan_class>opencl_nvidia_gfn_101</plan_class> <avg_ncpus>0.01</avg_ncpus> <ngpus>0.25</ngpus> <cmdline>-x ocl4</cmdline> </app_version> <app> <name>gfn14</name> <fraction_done_exact/> </app> <app_version> <app_name>gfn14</app_name> <plan_class>opencl_nvidia_gfn_101</plan_class> <avg_ncpus>0.01</avg_ncpus> <ngpus>0.2</ngpus> <cmdline>-x ocl4</cmdline> </app_version> <cc-config> <options> <ncups>3</ncpus> </options> </cc-config> </app_config>

This is what I use for 2 PPS Sieves on 1 GPU

6) Message boards : General discussion : Are we having wingman problems? (Message 117445)
Posted 33 days ago by recoil44Project donor
Yup it's normal. I've got about 1.2M right now.
There's no hard and fast rule but generally the longer tasks will build up more pending credit than the short ones. I usually build up the most when running GFN21/22.
Right now the best projects to run to keep pending credit to a minimum is the SOB & TRP double checks (and sieves).
Try not to focus too much on the pending, some tasks can take many months to clear and it will drive you nuts if you worry about it.

Appreciate the help.
If the problem continues on other sub-projects I'll either fix it or retire it.
Ram is 4x2 so can do 1/2 for testing, no spare PSU.

Finished the GCW without issue.

Ran 4 TRPs successfully and then primegrid_cllr.exe stopped working on the 5th.

I'll try and remember to run memtest this weekend but if it's a memory issue it shouldn't have made it through the GCW. I'll just put this host on other sub-projects for now.

Update:
8 MEGA, OK
3 SR5, OK
Currently 36% done on a GCW.

Another 12 hrs to go on that, then will try TRP again.
If I'm still having issues I'll run memtest and see if it finds anything.

Getting "primegrid_cllr.exe stopped working" errors while running TRP on this host https://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=505306
Tried stopping/starting BOINC, restarting computer and finally, resetting Prime Grid. I've switched to MEGA to see if it's project specific.

Tomorrow I might try reinstalling BOINC.
Anyone have any other ideas?
