It shall runneth untilst thou commandeth it to stop! You shall be [H]ard on your antiquities! (If I had a 25th Power Supply, I would fire up my i7-920, but strangely, my supply ends at an even 2 dozen PSUs)
I hope the Universe admin is correct and that the ULX tasks (the fat ones clogging up the straw they use for internet over there) get squeezed through semi-soon. My bunkers are getting cold!
Yeah I will definitely be choked if the tasks error out due to over deadline Always drama at the Pent! Good time so far and its about to get to the exciting part where everything goes stupid.
For me the Pent is a blast no matter how my team does. Hope you guys finish with a medal. Looks like some tough competition this year all around.
Amicable Numbers has been chosen for the Cross Country event. These work units are demanding of RAM. I believe each want like 8GB's. So, plan accordingly if you run it. Per RFGuy_KCCO it also restricts you to 20 WU's in progress per GPU. So, if bunkering you may need to use a few tactics to get more work units to keep the GPU's busy until bunker drop time.
Edit: If you need to limit the number of work units you run from the project at any given time due to hardware constraints or other goals, you can use an app_config.xml file to do that.
Just change the max concurrent number to however many work units you want to be limited to. You can still download more work units, but the client will only run this many.
Also, you can spoof the number of video cards the client sees if you want to get around the 20 wu's per GPU limit too. I recommend using this in conjunction with the app_config above because the client will actually try to run the work as if you had this many GPU's.
Setup to use one of my 1070s for Amicable Numbers. If it doesn't need 8gb of system ram, ill pull the other off folding as well. I'll be better prepared next year but the videos are definitely helping right now Thanks!
Make sure to subscribe to the channel if you haven't already. If there is anything you think we need, let me know and I will add it to my list. Cannot say much for Linux or Mac but depending on the request and timing I can try to slap something together.
Got Amicable Numbers going on another computer with a 750ti, but it was trying to use 8 cpus with it? Using that machine for Rosetta (4770 cpu) and don't want to dedicate all those cores to amicable numbers unless its really the only way. That will mean its going to do the same with my 3600x machine doing 5k points a day on rosetta. I set it to only do 1 thing at a time with Amicable Numbers, but (8 cpus) next to that one job bypassed my intentions
Hmm, Amicable at some point last night stopped running on both machines, meaning I woke up to check them and there were no units there to run on both. Judging by my points from the last time I looked it appears it wasn't too long after I last checked them. Which means it wasn't running most of the night. I updated both machines and they re-download units and are running again. Not sure what happened, but lost several hours overnight.
