Opps - starting a day and 9 hours late!!

Don't know how I missed this one, just not paying attention I guess.

Ahh well - onwards and upwards.



Thanks, it gave me a little time at the top:D

I think I have too much catching up to do to catch any of you guys in the top 10!

I saw your daily stats, 180K today! - way to crunch!!! nice numbers!!

Does it really matter that the clock is still running?

The stats will be manually updated later, as posted elsewhere on this forum!


I'm a little bit insecure about the running clock, I've not much time to read in this challenge because of renovating the flat. After all the problems to get work and the time was needed to control the PCs I've feared, the challenge runs over the time. There are not much information on the start page about the status.



In previous challenges, the clock as always run past the end of the challenge.

Hi zeitgeistmovie,

I've tried to give you a little challenge :) but it only was a challenge of my patience and my nerves.

So many errors on my boxes...

http errors or cannot attach to server etc.

To much dry run in this competition. Only the last 5 hours there was enough work for my bigger boxes.

But the worst thing is the missing of stats.

This was only little fun for me.



Agreed, not a great race... I did notice you started off with a BANG!!!- I got started late, was not even sure I was going to join in until I did. I did no pre-planning (my fault) so I still had a cache of MW and 3x1 burning. All in all -

We STILL don't know who won :)

With as many boxes of mine that ran dry - or over-heated (I have most mine overclocked to match a project, and PG has a real hard time with overclocked boxes) Ahh well.

Good luck!!

Setting PG to NNW -... back to my regular crunching!

Since the challenge is coming to an end here in just over an hour.

I am trying to upload and report the last of my crunched work.

On some hosts I have 100+ but am now getting the project down, or http errors...
Stats are not updating - nobody knows where they are in the standings.

Kind of like racing in the dark with no idea where you are in the race - yawn!

What gives - IMO this has not been the best showing for a challenge- Yes, the servers got stressed, and we found out that it can not maintain this load.

Yep, certainly an issue with these short WU's -

I am getting resends and already reported errors all over the place..

I am glad this challenge will be done tomorrow - Don't know if my poor network can take much more of this beating.

And I remembered now why I don't crunch this project more, I have had to down-clock my boxes. This project is very hard on CPU's - Temps shooting skyward, hosts locked up and or rebooting - once the challenge is done, I will have to go back to projects that don't beat the CPU like a red-headed stepchild.

Thanks for all the feedback. We will continue to make adjustments and increase max WU cache...currently at 119 WU's.

BTW, we just passed n=400K. The Challenge started at n~393K. Great work everyone!!!


150-250 is just about right - too high of cache can kill BOINC graphical interface performance..

These small WU's however are causing havoc on my internet bandwidth...

Looks like I may have spoke too soon, as more of my hosts attach VIA BAM, looks like work is getting to them. Should have most hosts attached within the next 3-6 hours.

Thanks!!

Is there going to be work available for this challenge - enough to run it 24/7?
