I am getting this message -- note -- the message says add **http** here -- I connected to **https**


This project is using an old URL. When convenient, remove the project, then add http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz

Hey Jon,
Will the old parameters for optimizing WU execution still work with the new WUs? If so, when the opportunity arises, would you post that information again; it got wiped when I removed/added project back in (silly me).

And I actually got my first ever AMD WU. 177d to crunch (estimated). Can't wait for it to get started :)

Seriously, my RAC and I thank you for all your hard work! : )


This is what I'm using for my GTX 1080. Seems to be slightly slower than the 1.21 version (7 min vs 6 min).

verbose=1
kernels_per_reduction=48
threads=8
lut_size=17
sieve_size=30
cache_sieve=1
sleep=1
reduce_cpu=0

Try using 'sieve size 25' and see if it speeds up or slows down

Hi Jon,

As offered I've setup my last dual 7990 machine on this and it's been running for about 6 hours now. I'm using the exact same setup I was using on the old WU's. The WU's seem to be completing in the same amount of time 12.5 minutes on average for both the 7990's and 7970 I've got it on.

The 1080 is doing them in about 5.5 minutes so far without error. Will let you know if I run into anything strange.

One thing to note, the server is giving out a cache of over 1k WU's per machine.(almost 1200 in fact) Previously it was giving out 100 WU's per GPU to ease potential server issues.

I know there are many many details that need to wait cause of more important things. but this is one that you should probably put on the to do list....

And let me know if you want the new badges I designed I still have them if you want to implement them in the future.

Elmer

Probably a dumb question, but I don't know how to remove and re-attach the project?? The "Remove Project" button in BOINC Manager is greyed out, so I can't use it...Any ideas..Much appreciated!

On the project screen in Boinc Manager highlight the Collatz entry in the project listing section and the remove button should light up.

Just a thought for you. If you are using BOINC Stats, check that in 'My Projects', ensure that you do not have the 'ATTACH' box ticked,
or you will have hells own job of removing any projects.

Hello,
first of all, I want to thank Slicker for his hard work in trying to fix the problems.

Then I'd like to give some feedback for ATI-WUs received on this computer:
It seems that the WUs get stuck in an infinite loop. They run for about 25-30 minutes or so and then start from the beginning. (ATI HD 7970).

Shall I try all of the WUs I got or shall I abort them all? I've already aborted 2 of them.

Hi Tackleway, thanks for the advice, tried everything and failed. Went into my bam account and unticked every project, so nothing attaches automatically; have deleted and reinstalled BOINC+ VB 3 times, latest versions, all to no avail. Still the "Remove Project" button is greyed out in Boinc Manager, so can't remove and re-attach to Collatz. Am seriously pissed off now that due to some fukkwit trying to scam credits, some of us cannot continue to crunch on projects that we've been doing without major problems for many years. Annoyed don't even cover it....

Had same issue using Boinc Manager
go to host list on Boincstats and click on host you want to update.
click on Edit Projects

uncheck attach and check delayed detach

Assuming you have no work for project:
go to tools on Boinc Manager and synchronize with BOINCstatsBAM!...
check that the project is not listed on Boinc Manager

Reattach project

Try using 'sieve size 25' and see if it speeds up or slows down


This ended up slowing it down to about 16 minutes per task (roughly to where it was before any optimization was done)

Hello Darkstar,
Considering I had no problem, I also not check.
The same problem as you. Also on Seti.
I uncheck, then detach, same as you. The problem was a old" no more visible host.
If you go to hostlist , above, right side : "show all hosts" probably you have a old one. marked in red color. uncheck "attach"
Let is visible, go back to main page, uncheck again "attach", the delete all hosts".
The F5 to refresh page, and miracle, now you are able to detach
