Ok, ok... Let's rename the thread:

"Please note: this project often has work but then runs out of work and the users moan about it for a while until there is work again and when there is a lot of work the power users moan about the quotas the way the non-power users used to moan about unfair distribution of work back when this project rarely had work"

There. Stick that sticky thread in your pipe and smoke it.

2) Message boards : Number crunching : Work Units making PC freeze (Message 19227)

Yes, I was running an 8hr on 13/3, and after about 3 hrs the PC froze on the screen saver. It seemed to restart OK but froze again some hrs later.
Also the Graphics screen saver had stopped showing.

One of my machines doesn't have a graphics acceleration card; it's been having trouble with the screen saver as well. Seems that these new WU's are so demanding on CPU resources, even the motherboard-integrated graphics can't handle the additional demands of the screen saver. My other two machines have nice graphics cards (ATI Radeon 256K and NVIDIA 8600M 512K) and they run the screen saver just fine.

Whooo.. this new wave of WU's is crazy fun though!

I have been running LHC for a while now but just lately the work units are making my computer freeze.

Has anyone else noticed this or anything similar?

I always have BOINC running at 100% even when i am working on the PC.

I have noticed that these new WU's make my PC hang for a few seconds sometimes.
Much worse, they occasionally make my hard drive go nuts; it grinds like it's going to shake itself off it's mounts -- YIKES!

4) Message boards : Number crunching : Maximum daily WU quota per CPU? (Message 19215)

Looking at the amount of WU's available just now.

Server Status
Up, 73139 workunits to crunch
94735 workunits in progress
8 concurrent connections

Would it be possible to increase the daily quota?
Even if only for a couple of days?


Here Here!!!

We're really rolling now! Let's ride, rope, and crunch these doggies!!!!

Suggested new quota = 20 WU's per CPU

-Daxa

I triple that notion of doubling the quota for a few days.
