The server scheduler is sometimes confused, how to interpret the max # settings.
...

Yeah I already suspected that. As soon as I changed it back enough tasks went in.
Thanks for the app_config but unfortunately when I want to save the file with gedit in the project directory Ubuntu doesn't let me access the 'projects'-folder for some reason...

Well, it does work as expected now but there are only two remaining tasks and the manager doesn't get no new work - although server status shows that enough Native tasks are there.
What's up with that?

If # is 2 set it to 1 and no limit for # of Jobs. BOINC will pick up those settings after Update and only for new loaded tasks.

Oh, I see, that was set to "no limits" of course - normally I don't fiddle much on any of these settings if not needed.

Edit:
Hm, nope, doesn't change it, tasks are still running in "2-core"-mode...

Edit 2:
Oh wait, only new loaded tasks? Well, then I have bad luck and have to wait, there are no new ones since the change.

It will not give more credits.

Hm, bad... If it weren't for the hours (needed for WUProp) I would already stop crunching then, wasn't worth the work I put into this imho. ;-\

With your now 6 core-VM you could try to run 5 jobs at once by setting "Use at most 83.34% of the Cpu's in BOINC Manager.

Hm, why shoud I do that? At least hourwise it doesn't seem to be the same to me, I lose a core with runtime...
However, I tried that for the fun of it, but the effect is not what you thought - instead two tasks with 2 cores are running and the last task is suspended...

After I optimised some settings for my Ubuntu-VB (had only one core reserved for it the first time) I just found out that this Native app seems to be multithreading.
Three tasks are now running parallel with using 2 cores at the same time, doesn't seem that they use more than 2.
Maybe this will have an impact on the credits, will see.

If you want to try Ubuntu you can use the instructions I gave to my team. It's worked for me on several 18.04 installs. The instructions given at LHC forums are way overly complicated for no reason when CVFMS can be installed from a repository. It's also much quicker than compiling it.

Well, I'm a bit wondering about myself but I could get it to work!
I didn't like Ubuntu much after I could not get an earlier version to work under the VirtualBox program a few years ago.
But since I had enough time since yesterday I really gave it a try and installed the 18.04 version.
It is a lot more "user friendly" as the version I tried once so I was quite surprised.
After digging into the stuff I even managed to install BOINC and the CVMFS completely and correct and it runs now since a few hours with correct results.
However, the credits for these Theory Native tasks are a laugh so far:

Well, thanks for the tips but I couldn't get this damn CVMFS installed at all no matter what I tried meanwhile. :-\
I'm too inexperienced with Linux to dig into this even more and don't have the time either so I give up here.
Too bad... I hope a Windows app for this will come out sooner or later, if not then so be it...

Well, unfortunately I'm a bit of a Linux noob.
I tried to install CVMFS according to the guide on a Virtual Box-Linux with openSuse 13.1 but I couldn't get it to work.
I tried the Scientific Linux commands to install it but the yum-command seems to be unknown to my Suse.
Also the Debian/Ubuntu ones don't work also, dpkg is also unknown it seems.
Is it possible at all to run this on openSuse?

Well, tried the new app also on my Linux VB, but they do error out almost immediately, logs all look like this:

Don't know if this is an app-problem or from my host, so I leave it be.
Hopefully a Windows app will come out also.

Edit:
Oh, I see now in the other thread that I have to install CVFMS myself. Will do that and then check it again, ignore this here meanwhile. ;-)

ok... DoctorNow..

How do you expect to have credibility when you have the kind of credit you have spread over 40 projects?

Is that a joke?

Not being flamatory, I simply cannot understand how you feel you have contributed *anything* to any one of your projects, even though your total contribution is at least noteworthy.

Difference of opinion I guess, but I would like to think that you could find a project you like enough to actually give them something worthwhile.


@ Aaron Finney:

Readed that by accident now.
Well, I'm not posting much on most of the projects, but I still read most of the threads on that ones who interests me the most.
LHC is one of my favorite (see sig) and I'm reading here from time to time to being up to date, although I'm not posting that much here.
But that's no reason to say to me I would have nothing to say here.
And deciding for credibility on what you crunched for the projects or by the amount of posts is not really professional in my opinion.
I love BOINCing and crunching and because of that I'm participating in all projects, although I only have one computer (this will change soon btw and then I can crunch more ;-)).
And last but not least I have a special project where I do post the most: RenderFarm.

I hope you understand MY SPIRIT of BOINCing now a bit better ;-)

I agree with WimTea...
The NanoHive distribution of work was very good. Every time a wu was finished, I got another one, but no more than 3 at a time...
Implementation of that shouldn't be so complicated and it would be better for us all... ;-)

19) Questions and Answers : Sixtrack : Can't attach to project (Message 5430)
Posted 6 Dec 2004 by Profile DoctorNow
Post:
Hello there!

I wonder if there's an error in the BOINC GUI or the servers of LHC. The problem is:
After LHC was offline during maintenance so long the last days I have detached the project. Now it seems they are running normally and I've tried to attach to the project. But the GUI is getting me the messages:
http://lhcathome.cern.ch/ - 2004-12-06 11:13:59 - Message from server: Server can't open log file
http://lhcathome.cern.ch/ - 2004-12-06 11:14:15 - Resetting project
plus a popup window with: Check your account ID and try again.
But my account ID is correct and I can login to the stats of LHC normally.
So what's wrong?

Greetings
Dirk
