1) Message boards : Questions/Problems/Bugs : Project recently started using too much memory? (Message 1613)
Posted 19 Nov 2015 by Speedy51
Post:
Hi I am Alan, I just joined the project.
I wonder how can I tame the CPU / memory usage as it is taking to much of my resources.
I am running on MAC OS Yosemite.
Thanks.

Hi welcome to the project.

If you open the main Boinc window then click options > computing preferences under the computing tab you can change the percentage of CPUs used. For a start I would change this to 50% and see how you go. I have given you the instructions on how to do it on a Windows machine I think it will be the same for our Mac

I'm more than happy to help reprocessed work. I would just like to make sure that this is the right number I am working on, my task are as follows. G2m1285_2950528_0
G2m1285_2950530_0
Are these right, there is no 6,490+ to be seen in the names? Looking we are up to 295 million

Credit is very nice on these tasks

Thanks in advance.

Application is lasieve5f.

Thank you, keep on crunching


Just to let you know J that 6,490+ was stopped at q=1800M (G6p490_1800000) although there are still a few aborted ones to be completed.

Thanks Carlos, this was completed reasonably quickly which is good.

OPN usually under lasieved application.

Main reason why I was asking was because more help was is needed with 6490+ but I have yet to find the application that this number is supported

Correcting wording from my previous post, was unable to change original posting

Are the OPN _463442a work units part of 4,490+ work units?


No, why?

Sorry for delay in response. Reason why I was asking is so that I can possibly help out with this job, not sure what app it is running under

Post:
I use Ubuntu. Didn't have any experience with Linux, but it was easy to setup a dual boot installation on a Win 7 system.

Just go to http://www.ubuntu.com/download and follow the directions.

Doubtless there are "better" distros - Ubuntu is often called Windows-lite - but it's fast and easy to maintain (for me anyway).

Just my $0.02.

Thanks for the tip. I've used the Ubuntu windows installer before, this time I am going to install Ubuntu the proper way as I believe it will work faster. I am aware of the best way to format the drive now I will look at doing this over the coming week

I would be interested in lending a hand with Linux work units if somebody could provide me with the best distro and how to install on a hard drive step-by-step. Am I correct in saying that the hard drive needs to be partitioned for memory use ect? I would be jewel booting with Windows 7.I have a 1 TB Western digital drive that I can install Linux on

Part II of the December to Remember Challenge continues today. Let's keep sieving and finish 2,1037- this year!

Which application 14e, 15e, 16e or 16eV5 is this job using?

I answered my own question. 16e & 16eV5.

Post:
Right now, NFS@Home has the rough equivalent of ~1000 cores running full time, so adding 576 cores would only reduce the overall sieve time by about 1/3.

Fair enough. I wasn't very clear. What I meant was if you could run 1 task on 576 cores it would be done in no time.

Thanks for the great answers. Greg have you been tempted to Sieve a job on 576? I bet it would be done fast.

Thanks Greg. Man post processing takes along time. How many cores do you have to run on one job & whats the most core you've used at one time?

Gr8 news. That's just over 167 years of CPU time. Out of interest how much work is done in an hour of postprocessing time?

Great to hear. Dose the grant give you x amount of computer time post processing?

Post:
That is some serious processor power 78.8Ghz. I gather all the output data is sent to 1 hard drive or location? Once you have all the post processed data how is it stored How much space in total have you used with completed work from the project? Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.
