Hi I only have one cheesy box
750 Mhz Athlon on Win XP sp1
256 RAM Hi-Speed
I\'m set 7450 for you
50 for seti
every hour boinc swaps
that is 50/50 timeshare ?
not 99.3 /0.6
also seven days cince trickle.
when I noticed it stuck, Progress=3.74%
I changed to \'Leave in memory when suspended\'
now it appears to progress
Haha nevermind I\'ll just detach seti (once the server will accept my complete seti.)
boinc 4.05

Your machine is not fast enough to getto the next check point (144 time steps)in an hour -- it was calculating the same hour over and over and over...

Figures that many hours lookin, I find no answers 'till I ask.

#1. My teammate ROM is working on timesliceing, which currently shares all projects equally irregardless, and swaps blissfully ignorant of things like checkpoints.

#2. leave in memory when suspended MUST be set to yes, a faster machine may
note its progress within an hour .But (correct me if I'm wrong) these tasks will still lose progress when pre-empted, having to restart from the last checkpoint each hour.More RAM would help?

#3. 72 trickles per wu = 1.389 % per trickle. 3000 Hours Total (est)= approx
41.6 hours per trickle .shared (*2) + nearly 4 days per trickle doing two projects.

#4. Off Topic, signatures are in html here .
