7th BOINC Pentathlon - June 5th-19th 2016 - Page 36

post #351 of 1534
Just managed to find a Z97 board with an i5 nearby to replace broken Z77 board, interesting to see if old Windows installation will work with it. I do have some Prime tasks already finished there, would hate to lose all those tasks

I Haven't tried it in a long time, I ran into a lot of driver issues, but what the heck, give it a go.... You might get lucky... wink.gif

Just make a backup of the BOINC data folder.

I think I'm going to leave the bunkering stuff to you younger guys that like to play with such.

Never did like the tactic much anyways. Reminds me of the old sneakernetting days decades ago.

Got a couple of days to see what they output and tweak them if I can...

It's only two weeks.... (famous last words)

Bunkering is part of the fun of the pentathlon to me. It also makes it more unpredictable. Teams have used bunkering to take positions from bigger teams at the last moment.

Can tasks be moved from one PC to another? Or VM to host OS? My VM has some units but lags the PC like crazy when tasks start.

From my understanding, copying the BOINC data folder works just fine as long as both computers are the same OS and processor architecture.

To me, it's kind of weird.... I absolutely despise sandbagging tactics with HWBot competitions, but the idea of bunkering a good run of work units before the competition starts for the Pentathlon is kind of fun. Hey, it means there's quite a bit of a focus on the science for whatever project it is, and either way you'll get points for it...

Fun part was trying to get as many tasks as I could though tongue.gif

But barring the Sprint coming in on Collatz (which I doubt) I would say I'm set on what I can do....

I'm getting more ppd on Prime than I was on pogs....

 

The one thing I don't like about PrimeGrid is the CPU usage for the GPU tasks.  On my FX-8320E each GPU tasks has to be give at least 30% of the CPU to run all out. It's not as bad on my i7-4790k, with the GPU only needing one CPU hyper thread to feed the GPU.   

 

Right now I am just running two POGS tasks along with the two GPU tasks.  Once I get another GPU in that loop, the FX cruncher will only be able to do GPU work.

Yeah, it seems worse on my 3770k. Anything more than 2 CPU threads and the GPU util starts yoyo'ing. I don't really care of the project either.

I'm getting 0.0495 CPU cores per task on the PPS Sieve subproject. Maybe it's different between AMD/Nvidia or just different cards in general?
