Re: Graphical stats by project

Cool, thanks. Shame there isn't more consistency in the stats and more projects. I'd love to see an easy reference to FLOPS per project, like the Collatz one in the link.

Re: Crunching for Covid

I've seen a couple of people recommending nvidia-smi for controlling Nvidia cards (TSBT :oops: ) Not tried this myself. [Edit] '-pl' (power limit) seems to be the parameter that you want - " nvidia-smi -pl 85 " sets the power limit to 85% So I've tried this and it works, with a couple of small amme...

Re: Crunching for Covid

Sounds like he's figured it out - he had a nasty overclock on the card! That would explain it ...

He's now under-clocked it a bit.

Re: SETI Sprint Challenge for Timbo 27th-31st March

Unless I'm mistaken ... WE MADE IT :)

My boinc client is showing over 10m for you now Tim! I'll await your confirmation and then roll off this and onto some speculative pre-bunkering for today's sprint announcement.

Re: Crunching for Covid

Richard, do you know if your GPU fans are actually spinning up? I can only think that one of your fans has failed or your cooler is coming away from the card. I’ve removed a few coolers in my time - it’s worth at least visually checking it and to tighten screws where you see them. You may also spot ...

Re: Crunching for Covid

Glad you're staying safe Richard. I have been helping Tim on his mission to get 10m SETI credits before is all shuts down. Mark has bee in on that too. It's been a good bit of fun. I have done a fair amount of Folding@home and also a bunch of TN-Grid, which is also somewhat Covid-related. Other than...

Well, it does actually look like there is not a lot of work available on SETI!

That's very cool indeed. I've not seen this kind of thing for this or any other project actually!

Re: SETI Sprint Challenge for Timbo 27th-31st March

Hey Tim,

I'm happy to do something for you. I tend not to crunch 24/7 on my older GPUs and am not hugely attached to my existing GPU projects otherwise.

I recall that there was some special SETI-optimised BOINC version as well?? That sounds a bit more complicated though.

Re: Folding@home stats

They probably weren't mining bitcoin persay - some other crypto that is ASIC-resistant I presume.

Definitely no point trying to mine Bitcoin with GPUs any time in the last 4++ years.

Re: Folding@home stats

I only have two GPUs still on folding@home, given that there was little work coming in and I needed some hosts to be on Linux.

I see that I currently have one GPU active and one dormant / waiting on folding@home.

Well it was nine months of screensavers, did the computers actually get used?! :lol:
Well, as much as they could be 'used' when plugged into a 28.8k modem? :lol:

Re: SETI@home hibernating

Yes, that seems about right. Well done :) Thought I might have more CPU hours under my belt though, since one of my work hats in 1999 was to handle IT ... and that meant putting SETI screensavers on the PCs!

Re: SETI@home hibernating

I'm sure I was on SETI in '99, however have long since lost that account. My current account is only 2006.

Re: Crunching for Covid

I've submitted the passkey request a couple of times and nothing has shown up in my email.

EDIT: just tried again and it worked, although seems to have re-set my stats ... (?)

It certainly is the best source of credits and by a huge margin.
