1) Message boards : Number crunching : How much has your RAC Dropped Since 12/6/06 (Message 35363)

Don't know if this is the right area to post my question, but why has my user average been dropping like a rock recently? The last 7 w.u.'s have caused a significant drop in my average. However my overall total climbs like normal.
Whats going on?


We both seem to be having the same problem, I can,t fathom it out either

Thanks for the reply, I just checked I have had the same work unit running now for over 21 hours it has reached 87% but the other clock is still going up saying still 2 hours + and climbing, what do you think I could have running in the background I close everything switch the screen off and let it run most of the day

I run my computer 24/7 and boinc seems to be chugging along my user totals keeps increasing but the user average has been dropping like a stone. I know in the grand scheme of things my stats and $2.00 will buy a cup of coffee, I am just wondering why.

Someone else had a similar problem back in May 2006, but I could not find the answer

I have rosetta running in the background all the time, Rosetta's screen saver would not work properly, kept freezing, so I am back using the window screen saver. My question is, Can I keep rosetta running in the background and say use the seti screen saver and number crunch for them at the same time. If so how do I set it up.

Thanks

Sorry but no, the screensaver is the curently running BOINC application.

My personal theory is that Rosetta@Home (or the BOINC/Rosetta@Home interface) is having some problems with ATI cards, so if it's freezing, just stop using the screensaver until this problem is fixed.

Just to add weight/destroy my theory what graphics card do you have?

Edit:

I re-read you post, and I think I know what you are getting at, it may be possible to have two instances of BOINC and only show one of the application's graphics, but I have know idea if this is possible.


Well the screensaver is now working, and it is an ATI card. I think I will leave well enough alone, I have a history of terminating computers.

I have an ATI Radeon express series 200

10) Questions and Answers : Windows : Rosetta froze the computer (Message 29770)

Hi Stu,

do you have an ATI graphics card and set the Rosetta screen saver as your default? This often happens when using that combination, it seems to be a general BOINC problem if I remember correctly what I also read in the Seti boards.

If this is the case, a solution is to turn the screen saver off. Of course many people like to watch the Rosetta graphics (I do so sometimes, but very rarely and then just for a short glimpse), but the saver consumes quite a lot of resources for the graphical display and slows down calculations anyway.

Regards,

Christoph

I dont know what graphics card, but I will try that now.

Thanks

I downloaded BOINC last night, when I got up this morning, I moved the mouse, and after 2 seconds a screen appeared, showing how much work had been done etc, no matter what I did I could not get rid of it, had to switch computer off.

O/S. Windows XP 2

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I dont have time to plough through reams of FAQs
