1) Message boards : Number crunching : Account deletion - Not possible, so... read this (Message 42572)

Post:
Why would anyone have his/her account deleted? I just do not get it. If you do not want to crunch, just detach from the project in the BOINC Manager. That is it. If you have a profile and you hate it, edit/delete it.

If they want an account deleted all they have to do is join Predictor@Home, DLB over there is am expert at that.

BOINC 5.10.7 is available. Please, update immediately!

Sure hope I did not louse my credits for not updateing IMMEDIATELY.

That is because the system of yours that ran them has 2 gig\'s of memory, most of us run one gig and many less than that. Your other system with less mamory did not do any of those yet, but I see it has one waiting to run.

When you read that you will see that they were canceled so you will not get anymore of them. They can\'t do anything about what is on your system, so just abort them if they geve problems you will not get any more of them. You don\'t have to stop crunching for the program, just get new work.

I also had two of them today, trying to use ~850 Megs of memory each. Result they both were suspended with the message Waitting for Memory and QMC running slower on the other core.

If BOINC would have aborted them to free up the memory all would have been OK and run other units.

That is a change to send to the BOING development team to see if they could impliment it. But if they did something like that many people running with smaller amounts of memory could have to many aborted. Looking at my results it looks as if I waisted very little time on these, but would have stayed there with them not running if I did not chack that system, which I ofter don\'t for a coupple days at a time. I was luckey this time.

EDIT
Since that system is always on and not switching from one project to another (always has Rosetta on one core and QMC on the other) I set the preferences not to keep in memory when preempted.
6) Message boards : Number crunching : Problems with Rosetta version 5.59 (Message 39647)

I have had two of those with very low credit, both ran way past the target run time. Looks like I have a 3rd running now, it has a target run time of 4 hours. It was up to ~97% at 3:56 when the percent complete dropped to 50%. Looks like it will run for 8 hours, and from the others that did this I will not get any cedit for the last 4 hours.

Looking at differant computers and the post in this thread I see that several others have this happening also. It never happened to me prior to 5.59, is it time to go back to 4.54 till this can be fixed?

This unit supprised me and did not run the extra time like the other two I had that did this.

8) Message boards : Number crunching : Failed download (Message 39399)

Not everyone has a large cache or a fall back project, so perhaps there are concerns of wasted (idle) CPU time.

I\'m crunching Proteins@Home when my cache is empty.

For crunching protien projects when the que is empty of rosetta I find that Tanpaku is better than protiens@home.

protiens@home writes to you hard drive all the time rather than only at the checkpoints like Rosetta and Tanpaku. That had been mentioned at the protiens@home message boards last year and the people running it said that they wanted it that way and run it like that on all there systems. The way it ran raised the temp. of my hard drive a few degrees but I don\'t remember how much. I would rather not put the added work on the HD. That is only my opinion about why Tanpaku over protiens@home.

Posted 26 Jul 2006 by Profile [B@H] Ray
Post:
If corrent users would not be negitave about things in the Number Cruncing forums more would stay. I just stay away from those forums and crunch. Many of those threads are sounding like at SETI and many do not want to crunch for projects with that.

There are a large number of people who got BOINC because of hearing of one project someplace else and never go to the boards or other projects. If there was some way of getting the word out to them I am sure that a lot would do this. But getting there attention is a problem.
