WUs with missed deadline

I need quick advice, gents.

I have some yoyo Siever WUs going to pass deadline. Should I cancel them, let them run or they will be cancelled by project?

A bad WU is not unheard of. You should add a feature to your BT tool to set a max time limit for WUs on projects and abort them if they run longer than the max.
BT tool? Please, can you elaborate?

Re: Another new Yoyo application: Siever

Sorry guys for going off topic. And thanks for sharing your thoughts.
Like Bryan said above "There just isn't a SMART answer to it" so let's close this topic and get back to crunching.

Re: Another new Yoyo application: Siever

@Hal Bregg this is an ancient topic and has been going around every since GPU crunching 1st came out. Credit Screw, which Yoyo uses, was David Anderson's approach to "socialized" crunching. If he totally had his way it wouldn't matter if you were running a single Pentium computer or a 2990WX Thread...

Re: Another new Yoyo application: Siever

I gave this project a shot on my Linux PC and I'm disappointed by the amount of credit awarded for successful work. For example one task took over 8 hrs to crunch, 2,044.25 points were claimed and only 599.06 were given? Why?

Re: Intel HD400 GPU optimization

Collatz does have a GPU app for the Intel onboard GPUs. You just need to get the OpenCL drivers installed. It's not nearly as powerful as the gaming cards but it is faster than CPU. Beware though. The GPU is in the CPU die correct? So you need to watch the CPU temps really close? No multi-threaded ...

Re: not going well

This is strange. I run Gerasim sucesfully on Windows 10 Home and I don't have any of those C++ packages. Are they bundled up with Windows 10? In fact I remember I removed some of them as I was running out of space on system disk.

Re: Intel HD400 GPU optimization

I knew that GPU would be only way to crunch for this project. As a test I run Collatz on CPU and it was going to take around 5 days on i7-4770 so i cancelled the tasks. I was wondering if I could employ more cores to crunch or is it single core project?

Intel HD400 GPU optimization

I am trialing Collatz and was wondering if crunching with Intel GPU makes sense? Can it be optimized at all?

If not can crunch on CPU using more than one core?

Re: nanoHUB@home

Project stated producing stable amount of work at the moment. There was a lot of troubles with WUs running endlessly or ending with errors but admins seems to solve most of the issues. Project does not pay well considering most of the tasks are short and if you want to run it on multiple cores make ...

Re: What are you thoughts about AMD A10-7860K

Thanks for chipping in, Dirk.
I guess I would use Window 10 by transplanting existing HDD from currently in use old PC with dual core Athlon.
Definitely it would greatly improve my crunching power and no miracles expected.

How many core I would be able to utilize in this CPU?
