Well if you have a HT CPU and run it only as 1 instead of 2 your giving up around 15% to 25 % of your Performance Crunching the WU's, may as well Crunch for a Project thats not having a Problem with the HT CPU's.

But that can be hard to do also since it seems all the Projects have some sort of Problem with them. Almost any Project I've run WU's for has a Problem from time to time starting up the Second or next WU when 1 of the 2 running finishes. It's a on again off again thing but all the Projects have the problem. Who knows ... :) [/quote]


i wouldn't mind giving up a little performance if using 1 cpu had worked and allowed rosetta to run w/out errors. haven't had problems with HT and other projects so far.

You can run 2 CPU's with the HT CPU's & overcome the "unrecoverable error" by simply Suspending the Rosetta Project & doing a Manual BenchMark.

Do this and mark down when you did it & then just do it again before 5 Days are up when the Server will ask for a Benchmark. I know this isn't probably practical for people with a Ton of Computers but for those with not so many it's a simple work around the Error until the Dev's can figure out why it's happening ...



wanted to try the 1 cpu idea since it had been noted that those computers with 1 cpu weren't having the problem. it didn't work for me but sTrey had success with it.

So it seems the benchmarking issue is isolated to multiple CPU machines, whether logical (HT) or physical (dual core/dual processors)


For what it's worth: I've crunched only 17 wu's but haven't had any problems yet and have gone through a couple of benchmarks. I'm running it on a HT cpu, but I've told it to limit cpus to one, since that keeps the cpu temp reasonable.
(& it's set to keep projects in memory)
Hardware is P4 3.2Ghz, 1G ram, running XP Pro

Just another data point.




i have HT but have also tried setting rosetta to use 1 cpu to see if it would make a difference. auto benchmarks caused "unrecoverable error" on a wu yesterday. rosetta is set to remain in memory when preempted but auto benchmarks throws it out of memory.

update to previous post: benchmarks just ran and caused "unrecoverable error." why this time and not last, have no idea, nothing else going on.

i'm having far more success with wus since upgrading to cc4.72; also, now running only 1 cpu with rosetta even though i have HT. benchmarks no longer cause a problem either.

[quote]I am not sure anyone has really answered the question asked.

First and foremost it should be in the rules and policies page. Donations of equipment and CPU time on, or in, installations are only for approved applications and No means NO. Ask once and that is all. I try to make that clear in the Wiki, but it may have gotten "lost" in the prose ...(snip)




and add it to the homepage, as well, for emphasis.

[Although the growth of the project over the last week has been amazing, our efforts to predict protein structures are still limited by total computing power. Does anybody have suggestions on how to recruit more participants?

thanks,

post exactly what you said here in the other forums. also, post on the homepage for those people that never read the boards. ask crunchers if they would be willing to concentrate more on your project, at least until you build up a larger user base. you have to let people know what you need.

btw, the optimized app is terrific!

screensavers don't interest me, but after the project's up and running well, it might attract more crunchers if they add one. people pick projects for different reasons, so if it helps, why not?

decided to try again. suspended my other 2 projects and started rosetta. success! finished in 8+ hours. ;)



with the optimized app (4.76), my next wu finished in 1hr 38min. :)

update to my previous post(ID77). my wu's progress was at 67% but somehow went back to 60% overnight. no idea what happened as my other projects (predictor & lhc) are running normally. aborted the wu; will try at another time. :(

re previous post...same thing happened to me. i shut down because of powerful t/storms overhead and when i rebooted, the cpu time started from zero although the wu progress showed 40% after a couple of minutes (same as before shutdown).

started crunching my first wu. completion time at first showed 178+ hours but after 33 minutes, completion time now at approximately 8 hours. also, percent done started showing after running about 25 minutes.
