Other than that behavior I was seeing there, it looks pretty good. Much better than 2012 (remember, 2012 was based on win8 and had that AWFUL tile UI) 2016 is much closer to windows 10 but without all the crappy apps and the spying.

Ah, that is nice to hear. I never mess with 2012 since the military was like no hell in way is that going onto our servers. tongue.gif There still current debate about going to a Linux OS for the servers or clients, but heck, it like any other time with military. It takes forever before someone makes up their darn mind.

I got a laptop waiting to run CSG. I'll probably add Universe to it too, maybe as a reserve. I've got 3 Keplars, and 2 Maxwells working on PG...I got 1.5 Million credits pending.

I'm debating on dumping W10 and going to Linux. Just a steep learning curve for me so far...just like going from iPhone to Android. My first few weeks were "*** is not doing this. *** is it doing this.", etc lol

I'm going to try to find a power cord for that darn peep's computer case. There is a GPU in it and a devil canyon i5 that begs for overclocking.

I got it for a whole month, but just wish he had remember to give me the darn things power cord.

I got a box of them right here. tongue.gif

Anyone bunkering Universe yet?

I started a while back rotating in some Universe, but since the all out assault on CSG by Team China, not so much.

I bunkered 63 units when the project was announced. It wouldn't give me any more than that, I got the tasks in progress limit.

Of course the first thing I installed was BOINC. I've noticed some interesting behavior with some of the projects and I believe it to be OS related.

Sometimes I will check on it to see how it's doing and all the work is being done on one CPU group (CPU1 or CPU2), so all 32 threads will be crunching on only one of the cpus. When I manually go in and change the affinity on half of them, everything works fine until those units complete and then it reverts back to only running on one CPU. I think it is because server 2016 sees it as one application, and you can only assign it to one cpu group for some reason:

Perhaps this is just a bug or something with the Technical Preview, but I would stay away from server 2016 for crunching for now.

Does the windows task manager affinity settings persist once that particular copy of the exe closes? I don't think it does in Win7 and I think thats why I went with Process Lasso for folding as Process Lasso always kept the affinity for a particular exe name each time it opens. I wanted to keep the CPU threads on separate cores from the GPU exe. With task manager I thought I had them do rest once that WU completed and then the exe opened again with default affinity.

As to why they all jumped to 1 CPU instead of both that may be a separate issue.

I have a few Universe WUs stored up, not many though, on the 3570k and E66.

If you look at the screenshot I can only choose to assign the exe to CPU group 1 OR CPU group 2, but not both. So when I change the affinity for half the tasks, the affinity will stick for the next task started that accesses that exe, and then I have the whole problem all over again but on the other CPU group. It is very odd though because this doesn't happen for ALL the projects, just some of them.

Can you run separate clients for both CPU groups?
