The host entry worked well for me too.
If Washington added a temporary routing entry it would prevent the need for people to do this!

I have a task waiting to upload for several days,
ab_11_29__optpps_T6211_optpps_03_09_35686_133960_1_0

Should I just Abort Transfer?

Since it finished at least one other task has downloaded, run and uploaded.

I know that I am contributing to a worthy project - it will help.
I am presently sitting at just under 48,000 credit points towards the Rosetta Project, and I am proud to be approaching 50,000 points.
For me this is a realistic first solid milestone. I have several computers, all with good fast CPU’s running Boinc projects that I feel I should contribute to, but Rosetta is the first project that I signed up to – It is close to heart. As a former student of Molecular Biology, and someone that is extremely enthusiastic about protein structure science I take pride in my limited contributions towards the development of protein science. Long may it continue, develop and influence.
Thank you for developing and forwarding this project,

Excellent, thats it sorted. I vaguely remember setting this to 1 about 9 months ago, and I had forgotten where I did it.
I was using a Dell 3.2GHz computer with fans that went bonkers when the CPU's maxed out. Even if I stopped doing any processing the fans kept running as fast as possible for hours - the noise was more like a jet aircraft than a vacuum cleaner!

Thanks, and I now accept that the code does not need altered.

[quote] BOINC, if it's configured correctly will use all available processor to run one instance per processor (i.e you have set it to use "On multiprocessors, use at most 8 processors"), and should use 100% of all available CPU's (up to 8). This is a setting in general preferences. [quote]

Are you refering to BOINC Manager Ver: 5.4.11 ? I can not see a General Preferences configuration applet/panel/screen or other tool. I have also looked in Advanced Options. Perhaps I have a different version or your version is adopted.

Would you tell me how to set BOINC preferences to use all processors.
Thanks,

Why then does your program always use 50% of my processing power on my 64bit dual processors and not 100% as with my 32bit systems? Also, what proportion of users would know they could run BOINC two or more times, let alone how to? I tried and it did not work, it just opened up the same Manager window twice, so I left it at that?

As an IT Consultant, and systems builder, I strongly recommend that Boinc is redesigned around multi-core 64bit chips. ALL NEW Processors are 64bit and ALL NEW Processors are Multicore. In another 2 or 3 years, there will be few computers with single core 86 processors, and the project will start to wain.

Hello,

I have a similar problem with one of my servers. I have BOINC running and although it uses both cores it does not use them entirely. The processor never max’s out. The 2 cores hover around 50% each in Task Manager, Performance. Odd! It also seems to think there is one processor on the benchmark at times. Just gone past odd heading for weird!

2003 Server R2 Pentium D 945 (Two 3.4GHz cores OC to 3.78), 2GB 667, 600GB…
Any suggestions on how to get the most out of the Processors?
