Message 476 - Posted: 16 Jun 2017, 14:27:55 UTC

I've launched a new application called Amicable Numbers up to 2^64 (double check). It will re-run some of past work units.

If you don't want to run WUs which were already done before, you can deselect this application on the preferences page: https://sech.me/boinc/Amicable/prefs.php?subset=project

NOTE: If you are unable to achieve 100% GPU load (to maximize RAC) with work units from the main application, I recommend to switch to this new application: it will have GPU-friendly work units.

P.S. Don't forget to turn on "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?" because the new application won't always have a steady stream of tasks.

What about amicable numbers found by this new app? Are they also counted as from normal app? And are we searching range where there are plenty of them, or one where only handful of them are present?

Only new pairs are counted, and since these ranges were already processed before, there shouldn't be any new pairs. This is what this app is for - to check that no pairs were missed. It's checking ranges with plenty of pairs.

Yes, this application is rather short-lived. Everything I needed to check is already done.

P.S. Don't forget to turn on "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?" because the new application won't always have a steady stream of tasks.

Didn't work. "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?" was turned on for all my machines. None of them received work after the double check WUs ran out.

This is strange. It's a standard BOINC functionality, it should've worked.

Same here


"If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications? set to yes and did nothing. No WUs after double check completed

It does nothing indeed. This setting is available in PHP code, but BOINC client doesn't use it. I couldn't find it in client's code at all.

Huh, it's called differently in C++ code. I'll see what I can do to fix it.

Sergei, on another point.....


I'm now running the new (not double chick) tasks having selected manually from my venue


I must have mucked something up as they are running x3 times slower ( quite old x2 nvidia 1060 3gb )


What have I done wrong?

There are 49 users who has set it. I'll run a script which replaces the internal setting name with correct one.

This is expected behavior for current WUs: https://sech.me/boinc/Amicable/forum_thread.php?id=72
