Re: Greetings ... and welcome ...

Hi Grzegorz and a big welcome to our TSBT forums. Pull up a chair and I'll put the kettle on.

Are you into the competitive challenges or do you prefer to crunch only certain projects?

Re: Benchmarks

Decided to drop the bunker from the 11hr one and get fresh WU to see if they are any shorter

Re: Benchmarks

10 identical Raspberry Pi machines. Only the SD cards will differ. Average run-times for at least 15 WU on each gives a range of 4.09hrs - 11.01hrs. Makes a mockery of any expectation that benchmarks on Universe actually mean anything. Credits are a bit daft too as every WU pays the same amount so s...

Existing tables in https://tsbt.co.uk/forum/viewforum.php?f=233 look mostly okay. Not quite the same as before but not sure it matters

That's the posh end of Aberdeenshire !! You'll find me in working-class Huntly. Our friends have the trout loch at Artloch but perhaps you're more into river fishing. Enjoy !

Oh don't worry, we'll get your gpu running much hotter than that :lol:

Which boinc projects have you tried running or haven't you got as far as that yet?

Re: Welcome to SolidAir79

Hi SolidAir79 & welcome - you've come to the right place. The folks on here helped me hugely when I got started so feel free to ask about anything.

Could you maybe pop up your system spec as that'll be relevant to most questions. Oh, and whether you use Windows, Linux or both :-)

Re: Radeon R7 250X not detected by BOINC

Might be that it is too old for current drivers. I have an R7 350 running under Ubuntu but I recall having to go back to an earlier OS to support an ATI Firepro.something. If you start boincmgr on that machine, does the 'Activity' menu include option to enable/disable the GPU? You could also check T...

Re: BURP

Even if this bonanza lasts another 2 weeks, which I doubt, I personally wouldn't bother bunkering it for the next sprint. Bonanza seems to be over for now. Bunkering is rendered (pun intended) impossible by short deadlines and only 4WU issued per-instance. No, my sprint speculation will be elsewher...

Hmmm - I am running 3 instances each with a single 64 thread WU + 16 threads of Universe (to empty a buffer). htop is reporting long-term load averages of about 66-68 & I can't see any appreciable increase in computation time for Universe WU.

Re: BURP

:roll: :P

I'm running 2 instances simultaneously per machine i.e. 128 threads on a 2990WX. Have yet to see the load average exceed 40 so I am thinking I'll try 192 threads
