1) Message boards : Preferences : Processor Usage (Message 10747)
Posted 2579 days ago by [BOINCstats] Willy
I use BAM! (of course) to set my preferences and computer location. But these are "Computing preferences" (thus global for all projects), not "Collatz Conjecture preferences". At the "Collatz Conjecture preferences" (section (which include the "use CPU/GPU" preferences) I only have set the default settings. I have not set anything for home, work or school, so my guess is that the project should use the default settings.

I have a number of hosts which are running on freshly installed systems (I work at a hardware retailer), with vastly different hardware. BOINC is run from a networkshare.

So, sometimes the hosts have an ATi card, sometimes an nVidia card, and sometimes nothing.

I'm not using optimized apps, only the default apps.

But, regardless of the presence of a graphics card, no CPU means no CPU, it does not mean "well, do me some CPU when I have no GPU". That would be along the lines of PG's "send work from other projects when no work is available in the selected projects".

Mine look like this:
Use CPU
(enforced by 6.10+ clients) no
Use NVIDIA GPU if present
(enforced by 6.10+ clients) yes
Use ATI GPU if present
(enforced by 6.10+ clients) yes

Still, many of my hosts (as an example: host 39081) still get CPU work.

All have client version 6.12.8, the problem was also present when they were running 6.10.58.

I don't want Collatz to use my CPU at all, it may only use the GPU. So I've the preference here so that Collatz is not allowed to use the CPU. But it still sends CPU tasks to my hosts. It would be great if this issue is fixed.

Just out of curiosity: What does the Comcast line cost and what are the line specs?
