    Looks fantastic!  Really well done build log, great step by step.
     
    Love the title, you have a way with words 😉 Hope she's "satisfied" with your small package 🙂

    I would expect nothing more than a tiny package.

    By default BOINC will only use the fastest GPU it discovers, To bypass the default behavior you need to first configure BOINC to use all the GPUs then exclude the one(s) you don't want to use per project in the cc_config.xml file in the BOINC Data directory:
    <cc_config> <options> <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus> <exclude_gpu> <url>http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/</url> <device_num>0</device_num> <type>NVIDIA</type> </exclude_gpu> </options> </cc_config> for example will exclude NVIDIA device 0 for World Community Grid.
     
    Note you may have to re-read the config and/or Local Pref files from the Options menu in BOINC Manager and/or restart the BOINC client for the setting to take effect.

    Same here:

    But I've been taking advantage of the poor performance to do some maintenance and move some GPUs around.
     
    She that must be obeyed has hinted they'd like a computer they can game on for their birthday in a couple of weeks so I rearranged some "old" hardware:
    2600x 2 x 8GB DDR-2400 Aorus b450 Pro M 256GB NVMe 3TB 7200rpm Seagate ES HDD EVGA GTX 1070ti 500W Corsair CX Power Supply Installed Win10 Home on the NVME leaving 40GB so I can dual-boot into Ubuntu.
     
    All I need now is a new case so I'll likely pick up a Fractal Focus G Mini as you can't find stock on the Meshify C Mini anymore. The hardware is currently in a Fractal Core 1100 but: a. It's ugly as sin and b: it's a tad warm even with a 1800rpm 120mm front-intake, slim 120mm side exhaust and 92mm 3200rpm rear exhaust.
     
    So I'll lose 12 threads and a GPU from my BOINC arsenal until I can replace the hardware but as the old saying goes: "Happy Wife, Happy Life" 😄

    Luck and availability of COVID WUs.
     
    It appears the latest COVID Moonshot is almost completed which is good news.

    While we see a general decline in participation in Folding@Home coinciding with delivery of vaccinations we have to remember that though the first world countries are approaching "Herd Immunity" the third world is far behind and eliminating this threat will require a Global response.
     
    What Folding@Home is working on is the groundwork for developing an AntiViral Drug to eliminate COVID rather than a Vaccine targeted at the latest Variants requiring boosters as new Variants emerge and the immune response wanes. Such a drug would be Open Source and available as a pill and not require special storage and could be the "Magic Bullet" for elimination of COVID and other SARS,
     
    Here is an interesting read on the Moonshot in Nature.

    Big difference in PPD for different projects. Here you have a cancer project with a PPD of 1.4M and an alzheime project with a PPD of 2.5M. I guess in the end it all evens out.

    Yeah it looks like in addition to the Download bug points for WUs are not being awarded.
     
    Though I’m seeing a constant flow of WUs now and no failures I’m seeing points awarded lower than they should be so it appears some of the Collection servers are backed up again.
     
    I’m sure we’ll see a correction … eventually.

    Oh, so me continually waiting for WUs to download isn't just me?
    That's good to know. I was worried that something was wrong... again.
     
    Currently only 1 GPU is getting a WU, and occasionally not even that.

    That's what I've been thinking. It's happened to me before when points have gone missing for a few days.
  19. Agree
    Captainmarino reacted to Gorgon in Folding Community Board   
    Ahh - OK. This happens once in a while. Some of the Collection servers get stuck and points don't get awarded. Eventually they will get awarded all at once and you'll have a massive spike on that day.

    The same thing happened to me. I even went downstairs to check on things and LAR had it running smoothly, all my underclocks and whatnot were standard... nothing out of the ordinary. Then... poof! Right back to normal. Got me, man.

    I didn't have any drop in PPD but looking at the team points it must have happened to a lot of people.

    So I complain on the internet about an issue with points. Two days later all normal. Like nothing was wrong. 14m ppd today. Just had two random 5m point days since it wanted a weekend I guess to kick the feet up.

    Thanks, and that’s running at the lowest power limits to try and tame the heat. We’re in that weird season where it’s hot but not hot enough to turn on the A/C and my basement almost hit 30C yesterday.
     
    Working in my shorts was uncomfortable not to mention the eye strain that put on my kids 🥵
     
    If your not running HfM.net you should. You might have an unstable overclock and failing Work Units. Your logs will show you but it’s quicker to just look at the HfM.net dashboard.

    Random question, has anyone else seen their ppd really tank for the last few days? I am trying to tune my cards but without touching anything yet my ppd like halved themselves.
