I had the correct URL so I detached and reattached and I'm getting tasks now. Weird.

Maybe I don't have the correct URL. Can you post it?

Just added a couple of Pine 64 devices running Android 5.1. Not receiving any tasks. Nothing available for android these days?

Last update for WCG. I have been monitoring this for the past month.
I have 124 threads currently running at WCG. 124 threads running 24 hours a day should net me 2976 hours per day. I have not been credited more than 2400 hours on any day for the last month. Where is the other 500+ hours per day going? The my stats page at WCG shows all the hours.

It's getting worse at WCG. 18-20% lost run time.

It's still not showing the correct amount of run time. I have 200+ cores running @ WCG. That should give me 4800+ hours of daily run time. It's always 300-400 hours short on that here. Am I missing something?


Probably not.

First I find that OSX and Linux hardly ever log 24 hrs/core. On some apps I might get as low as 20hrs/day which I'm not losing sleep over.

You might have some time lost between returning your WUProp and starting the next one. Look at your computer with the highest loss and see if there's a delay in there.

In all, I'd say a 10% loss, while not perfect, isn't a massive loss.

If I'm running multiple GPU tasks to increase efficiency, I rarely get 100% of the hours. I have no idea why. Some projects cough up almost 100% some as low as 75%. But as WCG has no GPU work, this can't be it.

I don't know if you're running VMs to get 200+ cores or if you have 200+ bare metal cores.

10% loss seems to be about right but that sure adds up over the years. It's really no biggy. Just a curiosity. Only the 2 4 core android devices I run seem to show the full run time. (192 hours per day)
I'm not running VMs. I guess it would be more accurate to say I have 200+ threads (106 Intel Xeon cores)running Linux.
Thanks for the explanation.

I have been noticing lately that the time I run for WCG is not being accurately reported here. Today shows I only logged a little over 3k hours here while the my contribution chart on the WCG site shows more than 4k hours of run time which is what it should be. Why are the same amount of hours not being recorded here?

::cough::

I've asked WUProp to remove "CompositeGrid" from their database -- and I'm going to block unauthorized access to the system.

Seriously, you want to earn badges for doing fake work? You really should be ashamed of yourselves.


And you just seriously shot yourself in the foot. I will NEVER donate my time and resources to run another PG project ever, which I'm sure you don't care. IMHO you're the one who should be ashamed.

And on another note if so worried about MMGW you should completely shut down PG. Just another hypocrite. ::cough::

I find it disappointing that over the years the BOINC community has become increasingly infested with credit whores and badge fetishists. Whatever happened to the desire to assist scientific research?


They're definitely still there. But for the people running the projects, who are trying to get the research done, the "credit whores" are a blessing. An awful lot of science is accomplished in the pursuit of the almighty credit. That's a good thing, in my opinion.

FWIW site appears to be back up and server stats show 42k tasks ready to send.

Very cool. Now if there was some way to show all the accumulated hours that we logged before WUProp came along. :-)

cgminer (Campaign #8) (for 20+GH/s ASICs) has started since yesterday ...

cgminer (Campaign #8) (for 1.6+GH/s ASICs) also and still doesn't show up in my account though I've already run some WUs for it...


I wish they would get theses App's on the Board, the Bitcoin App's are hard enough to accumulate Hr's for being that they run for a short time. From what I've heard the YoYo #7 Campaign is going to be really short so probably won't get many Hr's on it ...


+2

Almost 48 hours and still nada.

Bitcoin Utopia has started sending out WU's for Campaign 8 - Yoyo...


Yes, I haven't seen any Hr's for it yet ...

Me neither on any of the 3 I'm running. Wonder what's up.

Version 4.13 shoud fix the problem.

There are still discrepencies with projects that run with a VM (Beauty@LCN) and projects that are NCI.(Quake catcher network)
Beauty@LCN has 96 hours of credit for me on their website. Only 56 hours of credit here with 3.60 hours pending.
QCN has 144 hours of run time and only 63 hours pending here.

It seems to be working better for some projects but not for all.
