Now, wait until you get GPU code running.

I received about 45 of the error files back when I first posted about this problem. Since then I've only received one which I guess may have been a resend. There have been no additional errors, so it looks like there were indeed only a few tasks involved.

I planned to wish you a good vacation, but . . .

Sorry to have to say this, but I'm starting to get Download Checksum Errors on several files. The tasks that come in that way have already been sent to other computers with the same results so it looks like the errors are in the workunit files themselves, not communications or what ever else. I hope that not all of your newly generated work behave that way!

PS I really do wish you a great vacation in any event!

I believe on-chip cache should run much faster than running out of RAM. And yes, would run warmer.
By the way, for me at least the little bit of extra heat is no problem.

I don't know about efficiency, but the Septic app is drawing a little more current than the Decic one and that means a bit more heat. I'm guessing it will vary from one brand of CPU to another, but on my machines it looks to be about 10% more.

OK, got it.

I'm a dummy:

The only change I had made to my setup (once I stopped to think of it) was changing the venue from Default to Home. Unfortunately the Home venue had never been setup to choose which type of tasks to ask for, so the server did what it was asked to do and sent nothing.

Changed that to (all applications) and am receiving work now.

All is well.

Best Regards!

Just a quick note.
I've been without power for over 24 hours. It just came back on but I'm not going to play with this until it's been back for a day or two, no trust.

I shall return.

And, thanks for looking into it.

It stopped downloading new work last night sometime. (EDT)
The event log really says nothing, just as follows:

I'll try to remove the project and re-add it. . . . Let you know.

Nope, that didn't work either. I'll have to work on this later, I just lost power for a couple of minutes due to this Nor'Easter the east coast is receiving with very high winds. No damage, my machine and router are on an UPS, but not a good time to work on a problem. "Talk" at you later.

That could be an intermittent problem we have with the feeder going down every now and then. It automatically starts up again within 5 minutes, so next time you see that, wait a few minutes and then do an update and see if that works.

Hi again,
I read that elsewhere and so have been retrying all morning on six machines. None of them is getting any work at all. ????

Hi Eric
The Server Status page shows all green, but I'm out of work and am receiving none. Is it just me or is there a problem on your end?
Tks !
