What's going on with all the dodgy hosts claiming to have 64 GPUs and pulling 1000s of pps sieve tasks?

99 times out of a hundred when someone reports something "suspicious", it's not, and we have a good explanation.

This looks like #100.

We'll keep an eye on it. Thanks.

Looks like there's nothing to worry about here.

It seems people spoof the GPU count in order to get around unreasonable task limits at some projects.

This person has returned a lot of successful tasks in the last day, so I'm fairly confident everything is fine.

I am wondering if 15 processors for a 9900K is unusual?
I know I can disable cores in the bios, so I would expect an even number of processors when above 8 (HT on)

Easy to configure via cc_config.xml

<ncpus>N</ncpus>
Act as if there were N CPUs; e.g. to simulate 2 CPUs on a machine that has only 1. Zero means use the actual number of CPUs. Don't use this to limit CPU usage; use computing preferences instead.

Seti@Home heritage. Seti did use max 150 task / gpu, fastest gpus did run those under hour, and Seti@Home had weekly tuesday maintenance which did last 4-8 hours so gpus did run out work..

Most tasks have been returned on two of them.

yes, the earlier bigger grabs also got dumped back in one hit after several days. Very odd but at least I was wrong about them being orphaned.

Thats called "bunkerig". Download full cache of tasks, return them when they all are calculated. Used in challenges. There is modified Boinc clients to do this.

It does as long as the units are taken and returned within the challenge start/end dates. The Czech team do it for reasons best known to themselves.

oh I see what you mean, no doing that doesn't work.
and while we're on the subject of challenges, I've never really understood the point of them from a user perspective. Unless you've got a load of cash to spend on extra cloud resources then your finishing position is predetermined with those with access to server farms at the top and home users at the bottom.

You can only do what you do & it's a source of enjoyment & team banter for many. It's not the winning it's the taking part.

Yes but doing better in the challenge this year than last years challenge is a good thing, no one can beat the person that comes in with access to a companies worth of computers except another person at another company, but if you scroll down the list of players you will see how you stack up compared to those nearer you and your number of machines.

Where I used to work the County was working out how to put most of their 10k machines on Boinc, after 8pm at night until 5am in the morning until the power company offerred them a check to turn them off at night, it saved them the cost of a new power generation plant so they paid places with lots of pc's to shut down their pc's at night. Over 90% of those pc's were replaced on a 4 year cycle, some were replaced every year ie the tax people, while the rest were on a 5 year replacement cycle because the State paid for them, ie the welfare people.
