The VM I installed is 32 bit version of Mint running on a 8320.  Tasks appear to be running very slowly compared to my other systems.

I had to go adjust the x # of days work in the project webpage vs the Linux client to get more than like a dozen tasks. I configured the collatz project via the hardware optimization thread which makes the PC running the VM completely unusable. Even now there is a lot of input lag. But damn is it faster.

I'm about halfway through my work queue. Granted, I got set up almost immediately after the project was announced, so maybe I got more work because of the timing.

There seems to be an arbitrary max number of tasks no matter how many cores you have. It limited my number of downloads on the 4P rigs. The virtual machine would have helped, but I don't have time for that. Hopefully there will be CSG tasks to crunch in the near future.

VMWare was much easier VirtualBox but then I've used it in the past. It asked right out of the gate for an ISO instead of some bootable media so I had to make a bootable USB drive then get VB to see it upon boot. It kept pausing my mouse/keyboard when trying to enter a Mint PW. So I said screw this and went with VMWare. If there were CSG units I wouldn't have bothered with it at all.

On the other hand, VirtualBox is FOSS.

Thread Starter 

I forgot to turn off network communications on one of my VMs, and 4033 points just slipped through. :doh:  Everything is set now, but if we drop a spot by a few thousand points you all know who to blame. :D

Whooooo, just under an hour and everyone will play the "did we nuke the servers accidentally with the sudden onrush?" game.... ^_^

So... I may be dumb (it happens a lot), but I was checking my usage for a change and the POGs WUs seem to bounce the CPU usage a lot. I rarely see a full 100% usage.

I've never run POGs before so I don't know what to expect from it. I mean, the elapsed work timer and % complete seems to be keeping up with the estimated total time. So... I think it's right but I thought I'd verify... tongue.gif

Same here on Ubuntu 16.04. I remember POGS being one of the less intensive projects.

I am going to revise this. Looks like every machine in the competition will be crunching POGS for a while since CSG is DOA. I sure hope the POGS servers can handle what is coming their way in just a few minutes biggrin.gif
