You need to hammer them until you get four or five, then it will keep you going.

You will get work, just have a little patience. They are being hammered right about now, and we are gaining on them at a pretty good clip.

I think they realize now that we have a TON of GPU's so are scrambling to catch up. (Most didn't allocate enough GPU's to support their bunkering, this is also why we need a bunkering guide for idiots like me, cause they will not make that mistake again)

Hey EG,

Bunkering can be a little different for each project (ex: PG has a 100 wu limit / per GPU, so you could get them and crunch them a few days in advance, but then your GPUs will be idle for a while)

Basics:

1. Set your BOINC client to download however many days worth of work you'll need (maybe an extra half day or so for some extra headroom) before a discipline starts
2. Wait until all work has downloaded
3. Set your BOINC client to stop network activity
4. CRUNCH
5. Once the Pentathlon site has made it's initial update in a discipline, go ahead and set your BOINC client to allow network activity. Your completed work will uploaded and be reported to the project. It may be a good idea to set your work buffer back down to a lower level before doing this, or you might grab days worth of work for a project you didnt want to crunch in, and it makes it harder to switch projects on the fly.

There are other nuances to this that I tend to shy away from just because it can be a bit of a pain (editing your hosts file to block one project from uploading so you can still get work from another project etc..)

IMPORTANT: Make sure that the work you downloaded has a deadline LATER than the estimated start of the discipline.

I am having internet issues. Not sure what is going on yet.
post #694 of 1534
I hate storms, mostly since they make the electricity go wonky. Last year lost an UPS, now i had both of my rigs turned off for 3 hours. I'm back now into the fray though. Got quite a few Universe tasks completed though, and some of my point production was due to pending credits tongue.gif

The good thing is that i'll work from home tomorrow, so i'll keep a close eye on both my rigs.

Thank YOU!

I have an easy way to switch projects on the fly
1. Set the project up and crunch a WU and allow it to upload.
2. Suspend the project.
3. Set the project to "No new Work"
4. Reset the project.
5. Resume the project.

In this manner, the project sits in your manager, active, with no work and no way to get any. When you need to switch, all you have to do is suspend the project you want to stop and set the project you want to start to "Accept New Work". Then go through the remaining steps above to set up the stopped project for whenever you wish to go back to it. Takes all of two minutes to change projects on the fly that way and only effects the projects your changing. No need to mess with work buffers which are set to ten and ten anyways so you always get the max number of WU's when you start. If your using Boinc Tasks, you can do it all from one machine.

To me, I wouldn't mess with this either I prefer fire and forget, so when I choose the project I'm going to bunker I go with it but calculate when I would need to start bunkering so it fits into the project start. This give me time to figure out and fine tune the project for maximum production.

YESI I saw that one, Thank you! also, make sure you do not start the upload until the project has taken the stats baseline otherwise your work doesn't count anyway.

YES! Thank you very much, this will definitely help for the Sprint no matter what it is. At least we who are not that experienced in the basics of bunkering have a basis to work with.
post #696 of 1534
I am a bit anal about how many work units I have at any one time unless I am bunkering, I like to finish off the last wu's or close enough to it before I switch to another project. Plus that way I don't miss any deadline and I can shut off my computers that don't normally crunch except for the pentathlon once the event is over, and I don't have to clear out or abort days worth of work. But thats just me, whatever works for you is good.

Most of the projects that get run during this event are already in the boincmanager on most of my pcs anyway so I usually dont have to connect once to get a wu :-P

It means that we are being recognized as an up and coming team. A team they should respect.....thumb.gif

.....but the final chapter has not yet been written. Overclock.net momentarily at #6 are proving that they are proficient at handling GPU

It’s difficult to assess Overclock.net at #5. Have they still got the power to attack the Chinese? I wouldn’t put it past them.

At #5 Overclock.net continue to assert themselves in this melee of the giants whilst Team China (#6) could be summoning their parliament for a crisis session.

WE are definitely being noticed... biggrin.gif

For the last 4 hours I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with my network. Seems I have it isolated to 1 PC If I put that PC on the network, the network freaks out and I go offline. I have enough hardware to make an isolation job like this a real PITA. I think everything is working again. I am going to bed! BOINC away!
