I think I read somewhere that the problem is within the Boinc software, not the server.
So it might be useful to try other versions of Boinc.

Thanks a lot for the first LLR2 Challenge!
Hope there are more to come!
See you then. :-)

You see that especially on projects that aren't time-critical.
Well, for the most part that includes about every project apart from some PrimeGrid subprojects (think I don't need to elaborate on that ;-) ) and in a way GPUGrid, als you get a bonus for fast turnaround.

The advantage of running 4 threads on 2 cores is that HT gives you the performance of roughly 3 cores. This means the same amount of work gets done sooner.

For Intel this is only true on newer machines than at least Core-i 4th gen.
On older ones using two hyper-threads per core slows down llr tasks.
Well, that's my experience.
Don't know about pre-ZEN Ryzen processors, but with ZEN it's full power on all threads as well.

As someone who still runs oldish hardware besides newer machines I consider this as quite important. ;-)

Configuring all that with app_config and PrimeGrid preferences is a little bit annoying, but we want the best experience for all machines, don't we?

I've been running 321 sv for 7 hours now, but nearly all my tasks are pending. Is it that no one cares about this enough or that everyone already got their badges?

It is possible there's just a lot of tasks out there due to the Formula Boinc sprint on PrimeGrid.
I'd definately consider the possibility of people bunkering to make the adverseries drop their guards.

Hi.
The new Mac application is doing fine on a 2008 MacBook running OS X 10.7.5.
If it doesn't crash within the next two and a half days and some hours, it should be fine.
Anyone running Snow Leo?
Don't know if I have it installed anywhere atm, and I don't want to downgrade this machine.

Hello.
I agree with Pokey to get no more than one task at a time, and set llr multi-threading to two threads for running llr. As you also run sieve tasks, which use one thread each, make that a maximum of two tasks at a time.

Also, if you have a look at the typical run-time when choosing projects from the preferences, you might want to choose only the shorter running ones, as your machine might well take longer for llr than the typical amount of time.

Sweet!
I'm accessing the forums with an obsolete 13'' MacBook Pro made in 2010.
While I have all those nice Core-i crunchers, this is my main machine.
I only switch to my Mac Mini 2014 if I want to watch videos or films that go over the processing capacity of the MacBook's GPU (Geforce 320M) like stuff encoded with HVEC, or HVEC, or HVEC, or maybe x265. ;-)

Thanks everyone!
This was another nice work-out for my machines.

See you next time!
