BE WARNED: Lattice tasks have HUGE memory requirements (10GB) and take a very long time to complete (many days).

I've got 4 going on my E5645 rig and one on my home desktop (i5 2500k).

I will also run a few tasks. Recently I haven't seen any of the really large tasks. The last giant tasks I saw were completed by @Tex1954, and there is a thread over on the Lattice forums about those monsters.

Ya I think he had a few that ran for several months iirc?

The ones I have on the E5645 have been going for about 5.5 days so far, one looks like it might finish in the next two days, the others a little longer.

You may be running some of those monsters.  From what I recall the progress bar wasn't very accurate, but hopefully Tex will chime in on those tasks.  It is a pretty awesome test of stability to complete any task that takes more than 24 hours. :D

Yes, the progress bar does seem to jump forward in sporadic increments. The two tasks near 50% have been there for a couple days I think. The other two had the same pause but it was much shorter.

I would think these DL-580's would do OK on this. 64gb memory. Of course with 80 c/t's that might be an issue.

If the huge tasks are all that is in the queue, you would want to limit it to no more than 3-4 tasks with "only" 64 gigs of memory. :D 

 

*Edit* The perfect rig for those big tasks is a highly clocked i5 with 32-64GB of memory.  That way you can crunch them as fast as possible, and not worry about cores sitting idle while they run.

Is there a way to dedicate a whole CPU to a task? As in the whole thing?
post #289 of 549
Na, that project is BS. They were sending out WUs that were less than 5 seconds and now ones that can't be completed before the deadline. No admin ever responds to their forums. Supposedly some units actually complete but some do not. WUs race to 5% pretty quick and then progress VERRRY slowly after that. If it doesn't get past 6% in a few hours, dump it as it won't complete.

I am surprised its actually in Formula Boinc as points are so low.

Unless there is a mult-threaded app for the project there is no way to use all the cores for a single task.  Generally speaking most BOINC projects are single threaded tasks.  The best you can do is turn-off hyperthreading, so that you use a whole core per task.
