The benchmarks are way down on your No1 computer.

Measured floating point speed 1063.4 million ops/sec
Measured integer speed 962.82 million ops/sec

Something wrong for an XP6000+

Also you`ve only 255mb RAM.

Except that you have a little process called CCAPP.EXE in your Windows task manager that will grow very large if you run Rosetta straight for a couple of days, or even a week. Then you will get a nice little message saying that your virtual memory is too low and you need to end some programs to free up memory, and you won't be able to open other programs. I found that before I changed my virtual memory settings, I had to reboot my computer every two days just to clear the memory.


Yes, I have one of those. After 14 days and a bit [we had a power-cut in my office 14 days ago], the size of it is 208KB, which isnt'a cause for concern. It's part of Symantec Antivirus, and I guess if it grows to large size quickly, then it's a problem in Symantec Antivirus, and may be a good reason to use a different version of SAV, or use a differet AV solution altogether [I have no choice in the matter if I wish to connect my machine to the corporate network - but then I don't seem to have the problem you're seeing either... I'm using version 9.0.2.1, if tha'ts of any use to you].

Whats this CCAPP.EXE thing all about. In the task manager its 68300kb and using no cpu. Is this ok.

Bird-Dog,

you are running WUs for 1 hour which gives you a lot of overhead for initialization especially on WUs with bigger proteins. Longer runtimes will surely increase your output if you have your PC on for several hours.

However, if you only have it on shorter then initialization will take place each time you start up the machine and will cost time. Longer runtimes per WU will only help you little in that case. But they will save you online time/volume.

My computers on 24/7 and crunch other projects. Does the initialization take place every time its preempted then starts again.
thx

You seem to be doing better than me with the same system although you have more RAM and longer wu pref. Do either af these make any differance.

Since larger computer systems (or complexes) require ongoing maintenance and reboots, I was trying to find the option on the boinc manager to toggle auto-start for the app. There is that option on the initial boinc manager install, but not later. Anyone know if it's there, and handy? Otherwise will try:
- suspend boinc
- reinstall boinc
- accept autostart


Found this on seti q+a,

Add BOINCMGR.EXE to your Startup folder in Windows. The BOINC Manager will then be loaded each time you start.

How about the whole of the 'Name & Picture & Stats' (authorcol ?) becomes a different colour, much harder to fake..
(and it it flashes you'd cetrtainly notice ;-))


Not sure about the flashing bit, tends to distract.

All of mine apart from 1 or 2 are granted less than claimed.
Stock everything. (edit)

Does it make any difference if you increase the target run time?


Increasing the time has made no differance, same average /hr

I`ll increase it to 2hrs for now when the one its doing is finished. Can`t put it up longer just yet because of other projects. Will increase it more later.

Are there any hosts that run a standard client and unmodified xml benchmarks that are getting less granted than claimed?

Yes, I have some WU's.

Cheers
It will be interesting to keep an eye on how the results pan out for this box.
Any others?
