Can't speak to other distros, but Ubuntu's non-minimal installers come configured out of the box with RDP support :old-smile:

Yea RDP on Linux with GUI is actually really great, better than VNC. I only run minimal server installs though.

Going in to work to spin up three 2x 6242R servers and maybe some more 2x 2690v3 servers if I can get networking to them, or just temp plugin and pull some jobs down then physically bunker with no network at all.

 

Will be off forum for quite a few hours.

Well that was annoying, installed Windows as that's what the OS is supposed to actually run on those servers, BOINC only used 1 NUMA/socket, trashed Windows and put Linux on. Bloody Windows.

What version of Windows? It's all about licensing when it comes to M$. I had BOINC running fine on 2 NUMA/sockets when my primary server was running Windows Server 2016 Datacenter Edition.

 

I don't know about Home but Pro supports up to 2 NUMA nodes (dual socket). Any more and I think Enteprise might support 4 or more then the datacenter versions.

This is only a problem for systems with more than 64 threads, when you go above 64 Windows creates processor groups and BOINC only assigned tasks to the first group. BOINC detects all the threads and the existence of the processor groups just fine, it's just stupid and only uses the first one.

 

The pain of having 80 threads lol

Two groups of 40 threads FYI

 

I know it can work as the top system on SiDock is Windows but that's a different project and well tbh I couldn't be assed trying to fix it when a Linux server OS install is 10 mins max.

Oh, woe is me. My highest core count systems only have 64 threads. 😆

Most of the 10 mins is the HPE server boot time and loading the Ubuntu server installer lol

I can see that. Try using a Supermicro board and throwing about 3 HBA's and a couple 10Gig NIC's in there.

 

BIOS is like "Yeah I need to initialize these one at a time and show you a splash screen for each."

 

Just getting the POST beep takes a solid 1~2 mins. Always gives me cold sweats as to weather or not I broke something.

Surprise night out with the new girlfriend so I won't be around until later. 

 

Really nice of her actually, just told me that she'll meet me after work and she's treating me to dinner

Looks like we're doing fairly well! Top 5 in Javelin and City Run isn't half bad.

I found out today that the box I've been using for my 2060 is massively under-utilizing it (to the tune of ~40-50% depending on the task), so I'm going to get it swapped over to the 3900x machine when I swap the new motherboard in tonight.

The current Javelin throw ends in an hour, right? Would it be more prudent for me to swap my machines over to SiDock, or start bunkering WCG for the next one?

I'm not sure, 

 

@leadeateris handling the WCG stuff, but we are doing okay in jav how we are right now, as we are with others. So yeah, will leave it to Leadeater to device on that one

If you can bunker WCG that is also fine, basically we just need to match what we did today 2 more time and the faster that happens the sooner we can stop WCG and move to something else. It all averages out anyway but it's always good and safe to make sure we can actually match what we have 2 more times, I'd hate to fall short and have to do the 5th throw.

Makes sense! I'll get on it, then.

Right after releasing my WCG WU's I started bunkering again. Should have quite a few more to release for the next throw. Should also help if anybody slacks off this go around.

Well gave in and created a script to turn off and on network so it'll be a hell of a lot quicker. Baby steps to actually scripting all this :old-smile:
