1) Message boards : Number crunching : Two different tasks, same name? (Message 76716)

Thanks, krypton, for the analogy. Nice one. :) Knowing a little bit about the science behind Rosetta I was hoping for something like that. I just wasn\'t expecting exactly similar task names even if the same dice is cast twice on the same table.

Both workunits were finished successful, btw, and the Pentathlon discipline Rosetta ended two hours ago.

Thanks for taking the time.

Upon checking the workunits I currently run, I found two different tasks which have exactly the same name:

658255737
658255719
name: rb_05_04_46751_91195_ab_stage0_t000___robetta_IGNORE_THE_REST_09_09_163401_92_0

For both tasks I have currently one workunit in process on the same computer.

1.) Is this normal with Rosetta@home?
2.) Does it mean I\'m doing the same calculation twice here?

Thanks in advance for any insight.

PS: The reason for checking all my workunits currently is that I\'ve lost several days of work at least on one computer, since the server flagged all workunits in process as \'client detached\' and I got no notice whatsoever on the client side. That\'s most unfortunate, especially since the credit is lost for the Pentathlon. I already canceled all work on that particular computer (example).
3) Questions and Answers : Wish list : Resource share can not be set to 0 (Message 76314)

Just noticed that the resource share for Rosetta (in Rosetta@home preferences) apparently can not be set to 0 (zero). If you set it to 0, it defaults back to 100. A value of 1 is possible.

Resource share 0 means that the BOINC manager will only load new work if no other work is available and it will only load the minimum work required to fully use available resources. Hence this setting is an easy way to avoid caching work locally on the host.

Joined yesterday to participate in the Pentathlon, but all workunit so far failed with client errors.


Footnote: astonishingly enough I have accumulated credits without getting granted credits... ?

Is there anyone with our problem that does not have all of the following attributes:

1) one or more NVIDIA GPU\'s, &
2) running Win7 64-bit, &
3) Intel I7 processor ?



Joined yesterday to participate in the Pentathlon, but all workunit so far failed with client errors.

1) yes
2) yes
3) no, only an AMD Phenom II X6

Stopped Einstein GPU units, but no effect, still client errors. Since I lack the time for tweaking in the moment, I will try to participate only with my subnotebook, unfortunately being a lot weaker.

System specs for the records:
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T @ 3.20GHz (stock speed)
RAM: 8GB
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti (2048MB) driver: 285.62
OS: Win7 Prof. x64 Edition
BOINC: 7.0.25 (64bit)
