Thanks, I've had too many plates to spin lately and I forgot about the ball.
We really do appreciate you! Don't break any dishes just to do a stats update. Especially on a Holiday weekend.Thanks, I've had too many plates to spin lately and I forgot about the ball.
For what it's worth, your 4 6 core Ryzen CPU's are way more efficient , easier to manage, etc. than what I had to run to pull ahead, so you were 1st place as far as that goes. I have a stack of random old Haswell Dell PC's, etc. using a ton of power(along with a small amount of newer stuff) that I ran to try to keep us ahead of TSBT. Those 4 PC's you ran put out a lot of points!Whoa. I'm at the head of the stats list for the TeAm in this challenge? That's a bit different. This time, I had 4x 6C/12T Ryzen 5 CPUs, rather than just three.
That's obviously because all of the "big guns" were away at Formula BOINC camp....
Edit: Looks like IceCold pulled away at the end, to tag the first spot for our team. Good thing, now my world-view isn't shattered anymore. That, and it kept the Scots from pulling ahead of us too.
That's amazing! Thank you for your impressive contribution! And pulling ahead of my Ryzens, with older tech, even.I have a stack of random old Haswell Dell PC's, etc. using a ton of power(along with a small amount of newer stuff) that I ran to try to keep us ahead of TSBT.
what so you set it up to run PG and then set allow transfer so it doesn't try to download new tasks till after the start? what a great idea!I used the "allow transfer only between times" to do an automagical start.
First time I tried that and it seems to have worked.
Who says an old dog can't learn new tricks.
I'll add others as they finish up stuff they are running.
I don't have measurements, but I suspect thatlooking for input on how you guys are running this on zen2. HT on? SMT? how many?
Oh how I wish that were true. It was point out to me by @biodoc , that I have generated 51 "error" WUs during this challenge, the vast majority of them being calculated by my Ryzen R5 1600 CPU. Including several AFTER I disabled "OpCache", which is supposed to be a way to work around the Zen1 early-production CPUs that had "flaws" (of which, mine is certainly one of them).Aside from the fact we're solidly in 10th, invalid WUs aren't much of a thing anymore with Gerbicz checking. There have only been 13 in the first 4 days.
