1) Questions and Answers : Preferences : Problem with merging same computer, different OS (Message 7379)
Posted 23 Dec 2005 by Profile Daddygeek
Post:
I enjoy playing with different operating systems (I like running Alpha and Beta stuff) and so far, I\'ve been able to merge my computers with no problem. But I have one machine, that doesn\'t like to merge. Her name is Daddygeek6. So far she is on my computer list four times, two of which are the same OS(enterprise 2003). And I know I have one more software change coming up, as soon as I replace the SCSI raid controller(which does not like Linux at all). It doesn\'t really bother me , but it makes me look like I have more computers then I really do.

I posted some results over a month ago and the benchmarks were about a 50% difference between Windows and Linux nonoptimized.


I will go and get new data since version 5.2.6 is out.

It might be beaten to death, but is there a fix, a remedy, something we can do?
Server 2003 is not bad, but I want my Linux back.

So, it not the fact that it\'s running a Linux client?

Then why is it when I was running Linux I was only getting half the results that my Windows machines get?

The reason I\'m asking is hopefully, by next week I will be running Linux on at least two more my machines(I changed them to windows to get the highest performance I could in Rosetta). Is there anything I can do to help get the performance on the Linux side of things to equal the Windows side?

Are you running the optimized client?

Hopefully by the end of this week, I will start working to transform my Windows machines back to Linux machines. And yes on a unoptimized client the benchmarks have about 50% difference from Linux to Windows.

I have completed 10+ 1acaf work units on my computers. no problems

but also noticed that a lot of my recent work units have had client errors for somebody else.

and I noticed that one of my computers (my quad server) does not like working on 1cfyA three client errors in two days.

- Some parts of the computer may have a shorter lifespan


I use the theory that if you keep computer components roughly the same temperature they will last longer. Some of my systems have been up for five years at 100% with no hardware failures. I only bring them down twice a year for a complete cleaning.

I am running a IBM Netfinity 5500. The only change I have made is the OS.

The systems are:

ID: 899 SuSE 10.0 beta (2.6.13-9-smp)

Measured floating point speed 284.71 million ops/sec
Measured integer speed 498.57 million ops/sec
--------------------------------------------------------

ID: 4461 Enterprise Server 2003 (no updates)

Measured floating point speed 493.17 million ops/sec
Measured integer speed 784.71 million ops/sec
--------------------------------------------------------

Yes, If you like Microsoft. This is excellent
But it is almost opposite to all the other benchmarks that I have seen. (well maybe not that good)

well, I just installed server 2003 started Rosetta and all four processors went to 100%. I will run Windows on this project as long as I can. But I will need to go back to Linux. I see there were asking for assistance in their code, I wish I knew more C++ and what was going on behind Linux to help with their code. As I plan on staying with this project as long as I can.

I too have been having problems and only on my Linux machines. On my quad server was only using approximately 75% of its processing capability. Checking it this morning, It's down to about 30%. Even after changing the the nice level to -20.(overkill I know) I can't even get one out of four processors to run at 100%. I do plan on putting Microsoft on and see if that makes a difference. but I think the problem is more with BOINC than with Rosetta. Even on other projects, I could not get it to run at 100%.
