Feels like a new thread, mate. This is a little spammy and out place in this thread imo. :)

I have been running the same hardware for the entirety of the project, and have noticed a definite drop in credits the past month or so. About 40-60% give or take.

I also haven't discovered an Amicable Number in about a year... stuck at 16640... I am starting to wonder if I'm getting dummy work units or something.

This page: https://sech.me/boinc/Amicable/cert_all.php does not display any statistics.

Also, the image link for the BOINC background logo is served over http, and is causing a mixed content error for the SSL on the page. Should be as easy as changing it to https. :)

it's been running fine for a long time at kernel 21. gonna bump it up to 22, and see if anything blows up. :)

looks like host #2209 decided to take its turn at getting blacklisted. lol
i replaced the RAM today, and set up dual channel properly (not colour-coded on this board). hopefully this clears things up for the future. :)

i went into the BIOS and disabled some dummy settings that i think crunchers should generally know, but aren't talked about in enough places. So here goes:

turn off c1e
turn off c6 state
turn off turbo
turn off cool n quiet
turn off apm

and there was another timing thing that i turned off, i'll figure it out after a restart and post here.

anyway, i've got everything back to full blast 100% with kernel 21 and have had NO errors since.

Added 2GB of RAM, and it is working fine now.

Thank you very much! :D

I actually got the error after I reattached the project, but since the blacklist time limit has worn off, everything seems to be back to normal. :D
Might have been the lightning storms lately. Brown-outs, etc.

Thanks for your time.

Ah ok... I did notice that there were many errors when I checked it.

Any idea as to why they were erroring out? That computer has been fine up until today or so... at least I thought.

Hello Sergei! :D

I am receiving an error of "This computer has finished a daily quota of 47 tasks." in Tools -> Event Log...

Is there a daily quota, or is there something else I'm missing?

Thank you.

i am using a Radeon R9 270 with kernel size 21, and was getting some crashes while computing in tandem with Citizen Science Grid tasks.

after installing new GPU drivers, i noticed the monitor was set to shut off every 15 minutes (dummy settings from last install) and turning this off seems to have prevented the problem entirely. i think Amicable has trouble starting the GPU in a high kernel state while the GPU is sleeping... which is probably why you warned to not use size 21 if it's used as display GPU... it all makes sense now. lol. :D

my favourite project for GPU.

The project has always been included in the list of projects that team USA volunteers could crunch!

Happy crunching ALL BOINC volunteers!


uh... please don't use this post as an opportunity to promote your own team. #biter
and team usa doesn't have a whitelisting process, so your claim isn't all that extraordinary. ;) #allboincsmatter
