13:58 *** shirish has joined #boinc
14:00 <shirish> hi all, my Debian box becomes pretty unresponsive while crunching with boinc, any idea how/what can I do to increase the responsiveness of the desktop and still have boinc crunch.
14:02 <PovAddict> don't use GPU computing?
14:02 *** shirish has quit IRC
14:10 *** shirish has joined #boinc
14:10 <shirish> back
14:11 <shirish> hi all, I am on debian and boinc renders my system unresponsive. Running on Intel integrated system, no gpu task nor any gpu available.
14:12 <shirish> can somebody help in making it more responsive.
14:13 <shirish> PovAddict: a while ago, you said something about gpu stuff, no gpu here, although do not know if the message was meant for me or somebody else.
14:13 <desti> swapping?
14:14 <shirish> desti:what are you saying about swapping? Have no idea. Please be more clear. I do know its something to do with memory but not much of an idea there.
14:15 <desti> do you have enough ram to prefend swapping?
14:15 <shirish> desti: what is 'prefend swapping' ?
14:15 <shirish> before I get further into it, does anybody know of a good CLI-based IRC client as well ?
14:16 <shirish> right now I'm on tinyirc and do not like it, very minimal functionality.
14:16 <PovAddict> irssi
14:16 *** ntat has quit IRC
14:17 <shirish> PowAddict:thank you, installing it. I had used it couple of years ago, had just forgotten the name.
14:18 *** whynot has joined #boinc
14:18 <shirish> desti: I have 2 GB of DDR2 RAM.
14:18 <shirish> desti: do not know if that is enough for 'prefend swapping' or not.
14:19 <shirish> disconnecting, coming back via irssi
14:19 *** shirish has quit IRC
14:20 *** shirish has joined #boinc
14:21 <shirish> ah back and its looking much better
14:21 <shirish> PovAddict: and now tab completion also works.
14:21 <shirish> so what is prefend swapping and how do I enable it.
14:22 <PovAddict> I think he meant [16:15] <desti> do you have enough ram to prevent swapping?
14:22 *** os2mac has joined #boinc
14:23 <shirish> PovAddict: dunno, is 2 GB RAM enough or not to prevent swapping, how can I know/figure out?
14:24 <PovAddict> that depends on whether you're doing anything that needs more than 2GB of RAM
14:24 <shirish> PovAddict: its a simple end-user desktop, browser, playing games, music and boinc, those are most of the activities
14:24 <PovAddict> no way for me to know
14:24 <shirish> PovAddict: so how to know/check it ?
14:25 <shirish> also does anybody how to use boinccmd to know what the latest entries in the logs are?
14:27 <shirish> discard that list bit, just found out boinccmd --get_messages
14:27 *** whynot has quit IRC
14:30 <shirish> also do not think the memory is the culprit, think its the cpu, boinc is hogging almost 60-70 of CPU time/percentage.
14:30 <shirish> its a dual-core cpu
14:30 <PovAddict> the boinc daemon itself?
14:30 *** bastik has joined #boinc
14:34 <shirish> PovAddict: no, not the boinc daemon, the projects inside it.
14:34 <PovAddict> well of course, that's what BOINC is designed to do :P
14:35 <PovAddict> here it uses 99% of CPU time (unless one of my normal apps tries to use any CPU)
14:36 <shirish> PovAddict: that is understood, but what I want it to do is to be minimally invasive while other work is going on.
14:36 <PovAddict> well, BOINC apps are already at the lowest CPU priority they can be
14:37 <shirish> PovAddict: how can you be sure?
14:37 <shirish> PovAddict: or more correctly, how can *I* be sure.
14:38 *** os2mac has quit IRC
14:38 <PovAddict> run 'top', see if the CPU-eating boinc apps are in nice level 19?
14:40 <shirish> PovAddict: yup, boinc apps are at nice level 19
14:42 <shirish> PovAddict: can you help me in understanding this swapping memory thing then?
14:43 <shirish> PovAddict: Is there someway I can restrict the swappiness and if yes, how do I go about it ?
14:46 *** ntat has joined #boinc
14:54 <shirish> any weblink would also be good.

15:20 *** licensed has joined #boinc
15:32 <shirish> just added a bit more swapspace as well as made vm.swapiness=10 from 60, either the combination of this or one of these helped the situation.

17:54 <Dre> hello everyone, anybody knows when we'll be getting new tasks from seti@home?
17:56 <efc3> Don't see any news on it
17:57 *** Rookie_69 has joined #boinc
17:58 <efc3> looks like everything is up
18:01 <Dre> @efc3: yes, it seems so, but it's been a while (months!!!) without any new task, all I get is the message "schedule request failed: HTTP internal server error"
18:03 <Dre> did you get any task recently?
18:04 <efc3> Oh yes, something else must be wrong then.
18:05 <efc3> Recent version of BOINC?
18:05 <efc3> (mine is 5/10/45 and still working)
18:05 <PovAddict> luddite
18:08 <Dre> 6.10.58
18:09 <Dre> @PovAddict: What?
18:09 <PovAddict> he's a luddite for still using 5.10.45 :P
18:10 <Dre> yes but it seems it works for him, so I lose 1-0
18:10 <Dre> ;P
18:11 <Dre> well, thanks both
18:11 <Dre> luckily the other projects are running fine
18:11 <efc3> I don'ty think its on your end
18:12 <Dre> neither do I, I "googled" it
18:12 <Dre> it must be a problem of their own
18:12 <efc3> have you done anything with app_info.xml?
18:12 <Dre> but I'm a bit dissapointed. I want to help.
18:13 <Dre> sorry, but I don't know what are you talking about, that's my level of noobeurism"
18:14 <efc3> Its a file in the BOINC install, apparently it may be a problem, they suggest renaming it
18:14 <efc3> For me it is here: C:\Program Files\BOINC\projects\setiathome.berkeley.edu
18:15 <Rookie_69> I've been here for years and I still don't know what they're talking about.
18:15 <efc3> usually it only gets tweaked to run customized version of the clients
18:15 <efc3> try renaming it (not_app_info.xml), see if that helps
18:16 <PovAddict> the file only exists if you added it here
18:16 <PovAddict> along with optimized binaries
18:16 <Dre> I think I found it
18:17 <Dre> what name do you suggest?
18:20 <efc3> Just anything else, so the program will not see it anymore
18:20 <efc3> rename instead of delete, so you can undo it if necessary
18:21 <Dre> ok
18:22 <efc3> after that, restart BOINC and see what happens
18:22 <Dre> .xml in the new name?
18:22 <Dre> ok
18:22 <efc3> It doesn't matter
18:22 <Dre> give me five minutes
18:23 <efc3> it doesn't sound like you would have messed with the file, but thats the only useful advice I see by googling
18:23 <efc3> Of course.. there's one there, so something happened.
18:23 <Dre> ok
18:24 <Dre> I'll come back in a blink
18:25 <efc3> I wish I had a normal network configuration :/

18:35 <Dre> after the file renaming
18:35 <wdsmia> *lo Jay
18:35 <efc3> Good. I wonder what happened. Were you running optimized clients?
18:36 <Dre> ops, same error message again
18:36 <efc3> I don't know what actually goes wrong. That error message is not helpful.
18:36 <Dre> I know, I wish it where helpful
18:37 <Dre> well I'm going to put all my mental effort on passsing my exams, wish me luck
18:37 <Dre> good night to everybody
18:37 <efc3> Good luck, come back if it doesn't work.
