Thanks for telling me about this. Hopefully more people will find out about Boinc. Almost everyone I meet has never heard of it.

I'm not receiving emails when someone replies to a thread. I've checked the settings on my account. Other projects email me ok.

If they're not fixed, I probably won't notice any reply to this message.

Well said, no politics. We help humans, not one country. Engaging 100 CPU cores, hope you get my 6 ARM cores on here soon. I don't suppose there's any chance of GPU work? I've got 6 powerful GPUs doing other things I'd love to move to here. I appreciate biology on GPUs is difficult to achieve, but GPUGrid and Folding@Home have done it somehow.
5) Questions and Answers : Windows : Project fills CPU use to 100% although "Use at most xx% of CPU time" is set (Message 1584)

I wish it wasn't % of CPUs. I have 24 cores. And I can never remember if it rounds up or down. The number of cores I want is often a recurring decimal when expressed as a percentage.

I have mine running all the time, even when I'm using it. I just have Boinc stop when I play games. Nothing else experiences a problem. The only exception is Virtualbox tasks, too many of those and an AMD gets very sluggish, so I just limit how many of those run.

The new total 64bit version of Boinc was supposed to have better control of that kind of stuff but with the Developers being 100% volunteers now due to their loss of funding, Boinc proved it's original grant funding theorem many years ago, the Developers are working to keep things running not implementing any new features. The existing version of Boinc is a hodgepodge of both 32 and 64 bit stuff, one reason it can't see more than 4gb of ram on a gpu, but it does work for the most part.
Who was funding Boinc development and why did they stop?

Post:
Are you setting low CPU time because you have high temps?
Personally i prefer to set the maximum concurrent running task by reducing the % o CPU and leaving CPU time at 100%

For example on your i3-4030u (4t) you can set % of CPUs between 50 and 74% to run 2wus, 75 to 99% to run 3wu

I also suggest you to check your runnig background app, because on the I3 you're using 6.9GB of RAM while on the I7 is 5.8GB with doble of active wus
For high temps, TThrottle is excellent. You simply set the max temperature you desire, and Boinc will be slowed down to not exceed it. Works with any project, even virtual box ones.

Yes, reducing number of concurrent tasks may be better solution than percent of CPU time.
Indeed - this is not a Sidock problem, it happens with many projects. Boinc put this option in which doesn't work, or relies on something most projects don't use.
9) Message boards : News : Target 11 - Sprot_delta_v1 (Message 1489)

Post:
Hi folks! Also we added some bunches workunits with names like '%Pro_v1_run_3%' - for computations related to part of whole space of projects ligands. Main part of Sprot_delta_v1 workunits will follow by this set.
Sorry, should that say "will be followed by" or "will follow"? As in which comes first?
10) Questions and Answers : Web site : WEB SITE & PROJECT EXPIRED SSL CERTIFICATE - (Message 1483)

... Boinc won't work.. Not sure how to let Boinc ignore this pedantry.

Nothing you can do with BOINC to allow communications withany project that has expired certificate.

SECURITY FOR A REASON. Would you like it if a web site that's no longer under the projects control install and run a malicious program using BOINC on your computer?
And you think 1 hour makes all the difference? These certificates are issued for TEN YEARS! Anyway, everyone has programs to watch for malicious stuff being saved on their disk. Remember the good old days when URLs began with http without the extra annoying S? Everything worked just fine and all my bank details were not stolen.

GOOD UNTIL Tuesday, January 25, 2022 17:26:12 UTC
TIME NOW 17:51
BOINC REFUSES TO CONNECT UNTIL NEW CERTIFICATE INSTALLED
Confirmed, Opera browser lets me in if I say "proceed anyway". Boinc won't work.. Not sure how to let Boinc ignore this pedantry. Seriously ,1DAY out of date? What prat wrote the html system?

And the other reason is a bit negative. After many years of crunching on various docking projects, I have really not seen any of them yield a useful treatment. Since SiDock is new to the distributed computing world, I think they should be given a chance to see what they can do. The best of luck to them.
They may not have directly yielded a treatment, but they may have eliminated things so other scientists have a better idea what to work on.

I've just received some 3clpro addons, looks like a bonus bit to finish it off? So I shoved 84 cores onto it :-)

Yeah I know my credit is zero, I'm connected through a Gridcoin pool. It pays for the hardware.

The project has server problems and it tends to get overloaded. There are currently over 14,000 tasks waiting for validation (70 of them mine 🙂).

The work flows slowly but it does flow and you get the credits after a while.


I guess that's a good problem to have.
They grew to quickly for their funding.
You can always donate. Pass them a few gridcoins or something.
