01:18 <dddh> "Boinc reports each individual GPU. A GTX690 has two GPU's so Boinc reports two GTX690's! It's doesn't report the card count, just the GPU count, and it has to call it something, so GTX690 it is. Boinc also reports the first (or biggest/most powerful GPU) and then the number of GPU's. So if you have a GTX680 in there, it will report it as another GTX690."

01:35 * dddh plans to add one more GPU
01:37 <dddh> GTX690 is ~$900
01:37 <Tank_Master> 780 and geforce titan will be out by end of the month
01:37 <dddh> oh
01:39 <Tank_Master> nvidia will be releasing new cards just before the PS4 release
01:43 <dddh> do you recommend 790 or titan?
01:45 <dddh> ordering intel 520 SSDs
01:45 <Tank_Master> 790 wont be out till sept
01:48 <Tank_Master> but apparently the geforce titan will perform about the same as a 690 as a single gpu, but consume only around 250w max
02:01 <dddh> 790 is almost tesla k20?
02:04 <Tank_Master> its a new design
02:04 <Tank_Master> k114? i dont remember
02:07 <Tank_Master> 2,680 stream processors
03:05 <dddh> and you think titan > 690?

16:16 <xcamel> I guess I need a new UPS...
16:17 <AlbinoGeek> So, I guess we know what the issue is now.
16:17 *** up365 has joined #boinc
16:17 <RomW> Okay, faulty AMD drivers then
16:17 <AlbinoGeek> Detecting the ATI Radeon HD 5400 breaks BOINC client 7.
16:17 <AlbinoGeek> RomW: That's the thing, it doesn't break in BOINC 6
16:17 <AlbinoGeek> 6.8. whatever WCG was
16:18 <RomW> 6.8 doesn't support GPUs IIRC
16:18 <AlbinoGeek> RomW: :/ You sure? It would list them in the init.
16:18 <PovAddict> or maybe it does but only nvidia?
16:18 <RomW> It might have only been Nvidia
16:19 <RomW> I think WCG deploys 6.10
16:19 <RomW> 6.8 is used by PTP, GridRepublic, and Charity Engine
16:20 <RomW> Should check the event log, you might have processed your quota
16:21 <AlbinoGeek> RomW: Hmm, nope; it was the default computing settings.
16:21 <AlbinoGeek> When I set them all to 100% it started downloading more projects.
16:21 <AlbinoGeek> The defaults were terrible
16:21 <AlbinoGeek> use at most 20% cores? seriously ?
16:22 <RomW> In any case, I suspect you'll run into scheduling problems for awhile, until we can figure out what the correct processor count is supposed to be, BOINC will do screwy things
16:22 <AlbinoGeek> RomW: Ehh, I set the cores to 25%, it uses 24. Seems to work fine now. It's running 24 units.
16:22 <RomW> That has to be something WCG sets up by default when you connect up to them
16:23 <PovAddict> did you hear Opera is moving to WebKit?
16:23 <AlbinoGeek> 25% of 96 = 24 :)
16:23 <RomW> I guess that'll work
16:23 <AlbinoGeek> Hmm, glad it's working now.
16:24 <AlbinoGeek> RomW: Looks like you guys need to contact ATI about their drivers, or figure out why your "look for compatible GPUs" function causes an infinite loop, lol.
16:24 <AlbinoGeek> Was using 100% of one core trying to find compatible GPUs
16:24 <RomW> You can probably upgrade/downgrade the AMD driver and find one that works with BOINC and your card
16:25 <AlbinoGeek> RomW: Running ATI-Latest (beta, not whql) drivers. Functions on everything else, even reverse engineering and cracking projects.
16:25 <AlbinoGeek> Not sure why it wouldn't work on BOINC.
16:25 <AlbinoGeek> I can use it with any CUDA-compatible software.
16:25 <AlbinoGeek> Jack, ntmlam, etc.
16:26 <Tank_Master> im using the 13.2 beta drivvers with no isues
16:30 <AlbinoGeek> Tank_Master: Same driver here, but BOINC obviously doesn't like it.
16:30 <RomW> well, there are three parts to the equation
16:30 <RomW> BOINC/Driver/Card
16:31 <RomW> There is something with that combination of stuff that is causing the processor to spin
16:42 <Tank_Master> it may be something with the way it interacts with hypervisor, im running w/o it

22:19 <RomW> Can BOINC Manager connect?
22:19 <zombie67> I am trying bm now
22:20 <zombie67> no

22:21 *** RBecker is now known as rbecker
22:21 <zombie67> boincmanager on local mac, trying to connect to remote windows machine, post updates
22:22 <PovAddict> can a local boinc manager connect on the windows machine?
22:22 <zombie67> I have 5 windows machines, all are now in the same state
22:22 <zombie67> pov, yes
22:22 <RomW> okay, that leaves finding out what has been logged to stderrdae.txt and stdoutdae.txt
22:23 <zombie67> bm can connect to my other macs just fine
22:23 <zombie67> from which machine?
22:23 <RomW> One of the Windows boxes
22:24 <zombie67> okay, lemme look
22:27 <zombie67> vnc has become molasses since the upgrade too
22:29 <zombie67> GLE: Another instance of BOINC is running
22:32 <RomW> Odd
22:33 *** NudgeyNR has quit IRC
22:33 <RomW> Okay, so the client thinks it has successfully created the port it listens on
22:34 <PovAddict> ah
22:34 <PovAddict> manager starts, can't connect to the client, assumes it's not running so tries to run the client again, client won't start because an instance is already running?
22:35 <zombie67> fyi, the stderrdae.txt was not updated since 01/15
22:35 <RomW> generally
22:35 <PovAddict> oh then that's not it
22:35 <zombie67> I don't think the local manager is able to get to the remote client
22:35 <zombie67> so the rtemote client won't have any data
22:36 <zombie67> it's like a firewall problem, except that's not it
22:37 <zombie67> whoop!
22:37 <zombie67> this is new
22:37 <zombie67> now BM is giving me the pop up with "communicating with boinc client, please wait...."
22:37 <zombie67> maybe the remote machine will have some data to share this time
22:38 <PovAddict> in my experience I find that asynchronous RPC stuff in the manager isn't worth a damn
22:38 <zombie67> it keep poping up, then going away, then popping up...
22:38 <PovAddict> if the client is slow, the manager is either slow or pops up that "please wait" thing
22:39 <zombie67> and finally success!
22:39 <PovAddict> and if the client hangs due to the typical synchronous DNS thing, I still can't control the client because I have the "please wait" popup, so I don't know what is gained by doing the communication on a separate thread
22:39 <zombie67> but why is this happening with just the windows machines, and only after updating with the latest batch of updates from msft?
22:39 <PovAddict> (and apps still suicide due to no heartbeats)
22:40 <zombie67> says I am connected, but the time is not changing
22:41 <zombie67> this sux
22:42 <zombie67> I will not be schleping a mouse kbrd and monitor from machine to machines several times per day...
22:42 <PovAddict> vnc/rdp/kvm...
22:43 <zombie67> I use vnc today
22:43 <zombie67> but it's like molasis
22:43 <zombie67> after the updates
22:43 <zombie67> I will chalk this up to msft for now
22:44 <zombie67> it shouldn't be this hard
22:44 <PovAddict> what VNC flavor?
22:44 <zombie67> jollyfastvnc
22:44 <PovAddict> I mean on the Windows side
22:44 <zombie67> I have also used chickenofthevnc
22:44 <zombie67> oh, ultravnc
22:45 <zombie67> do you have a version you like?
22:45 <PovAddict> maybe the windows updates broke the mirror video driver that ultravnc uses to be fast
22:45 <zombie67> maybe
22:46 <RomW> Or it just needs to be re-installed
22:46 <PovAddict> sure
22:46 <RomW> Sometimes the mini-port position gets out of whack
22:46 <PovAddict> the updates broke it, maybe simply a reinstall fixes it :)
22:47 <zombie67> Yeah, I tried that idea with BOINC, fail
22:47 <RomW> I'm just saying it was a semi-common problem before plug and play
22:48 <RomW> and none of the mirroring drivers are classified as plug and play
22:48 <PovAddict> I still find it funny that I can install a VNC server that puts a *mirroring video driver* in the middle of the graphics rendering path, and not need a reboot
22:48 <RomW> So the mini-port stacking issue could be a problem
22:48 <PovAddict> but I can't upgrade the web browser without a reboot
22:49 <RomW> One has a well defined and well ordered unload policy
22:49 <RomW> The other, not so much
22:50 <zombie67> I run boinctasks via codeweaver (wine). IN trying to fix the issue, I upgraded to the latest version of CW. But BT doesn't work with CW 12.x. Still doesn't. Now I have to go find an 11.3 version and reinstall it. Grr.
22:50 <RomW> One of these days, I'm hoping they will put the hot patch technology to good use
22:51 <PovAddict> in the direction they are moving, I doubt it :P
22:52 <RomW> Well, adjusting a running process's fix-up table was a hard problem
22:52 <PovAddict> first they have to solve the new identity crisis of whether Windows is a computer operating system or an iOS-like :P
22:52 <RomW> I hear that
22:52 <RomW> I'm not to keen on the new shell
22:53 <PovAddict> it's not just the shell, it's also the app store thing, and the ARM port that can *only* run apps from the store
22:53 <PovAddict> <Sho_> I bought Windows 8 in December, and I have to say it's the first truly modern OS designed for the internet age ... or at least I was unable to find out how to reboot it without using Google
22:53 <RomW> well the arm thing isn't all that different than the phone thing

22:53 <zombie67> I installed an app on my win8 machine, that puts back the start button.
22:54 <zombie67> that makes it semi-usable.
22:54 <RomW> :)
22:54 <zombie67> but it is still extremely sluggish compared to win7
22:54 <zombie67> and this is with the fastest i7 and 16gb of ram
22:54 <RomW> I did the same thing too, but that was because the Media Center software wouldn't load automatically without it
22:55 <zombie67> what a stinking turd
22:55 <PovAddict> some in the Linux crowd are excited :P
22:55 <RomW> Which I found odd, considering MS wrote the Media Center software and you have to pay extra for
22:55 <zombie67> it's fine, with a touch/pad interface, but suxks as a desktop

23:13 <zombie67> my network was saturated. So BT and BM could not connect
23:13 <RomW> Ouch
23:13 <zombie67> einstein tasks are HUGE.

23:17 <zombie67> but I am stupid, and bumped that up to 20
23:17 <zombie67> because of seti
23:17 <PovAddict> oh
23:17 <RomW> oh
23:17 <RomW> lol
23:17 <PovAddict> geeez
23:17 <PovAddict> that means
23:17 <PovAddict> up to 400 concurrent transfers
23:17 <PovAddict> no wait
23:17 <PovAddict> -.-
23:18 <PovAddict> 200
23:18 <PovAddict> that's the worst case
23:18 <PovAddict> 20 downloads, 20 uploads, on all 5 machines
23:18 <zombie67> seti is such a trickle, you have to have many attempts going concurrently, and re-trying, over and over, just to keep a PIII machine fed
23:19 <zombie67> oh, and my network is all wi-fi
23:19 <RomW> ouch
23:19 <zombie67> yeah, completely self-induced.
23:19 <PovAddict> hmm
23:19 <PovAddict> I think I'll be making a crowdsourced project soon >.>
23:19 <zombie67> I set up that venue as school, and then attached all the machines as work
23:20 <zombie67> I'm in!
23:20 <PovAddict> like, brain processing :P
23:20 <zombie67> this is how skynet happens
23:20 <zombie67> or the Jesus Incident
23:20 <PovAddict> the scale of this is awfully big
23:21 <zombie67> big scale is what BOINC should be good at
23:21 <PovAddict> if I could write an image processing algorithm for this, I *might* not need BOINC
23:22 <PovAddict> since I can't, I need humans
23:22 <RomW> PyBossa?
23:22 <zombie67> whatever you do, make it checkpoint please.
23:22 <zombie67> all the rendering projects don't checkpoint
23:22 <PovAddict> zombie67: this is not processing, this is people working, like stardust
23:23 <PovAddict> RomW: maybe
23:23 <zombie67> wait, you want me to work? F that noise
23:23 <PovAddict> I did say brain/human processing :P
23:23 <zombie67> that's why I have machines
23:23 <zombie67> I thought you meant sinulating brain processing
23:23 <zombie67> on a computer
23:23 <RomW> Well just a warning, Daniel likes shiny web technology
23:23 <PovAddict> http://ecn.t0.tiles.virtualearth.net/tiles/a03331303103103220.jpeg?g=1145 Middle of Nowhere, Mopti, Mali (african continent)
23:24 <zombie67> looks about right
23:24 <zombie67> anyone else use wine on osx?
23:25 <PovAddict> it's 79017kmÂ²
23:25 <zombie67> I have like codeweaver, because it simplifies the installation of BT. But since 12.x, it doesn't work.
23:25 <PovAddict> and sometimes, in the middle of the desert... http://ecn.t0.tiles.virtualearth.net/tiles/a0333130310310222.jpeg?g=1145 a settlement

23:26 <zombie67> anytime I hear people worrying about "overpopulation", I have to laugh. I have driven across the US many times. There is so much empty space in the country alone....
23:26 <PovAddict> zombie67: these populated areas are very sparse, the problem is finding them
23:27 <zombie67> And the population has stopped growing
23:27 <zombie67> globvally
23:27 *** NudgeyNR has quit IRC
23:27 <zombie67> we are all turning into japan.
23:27 <PovAddict> let's say you need this resolution to notice them: http://ecn.t0.tiles.virtualearth.net/tiles/a03331303103102220.jpeg?g=1145
23:27 <zombie67> some faster than others, but we have peaked
23:28 <PovAddict> that means...
23:29 <PovAddict> at that resolution there are 845310 map tiles to look at
23:29 <zombie67> why can't we have a computer do it?
23:30 <PovAddict> I can write a program to give users images to look at and to click when they see buildings
23:30 <PovAddict> I can't write a program that uses image recognition to find buildings automatically
23:30 <zombie67> why not?
23:31 <zombie67> sounds like the wildlife project
23:31 <PovAddict> because I, personally, don't know sh1t about computer vision algorithms? :P
23:31 <zombie67> finde someone who can
23:31 *** paul_l has quit IRC
23:31 <zombie67> easier than finding hundereds of people to look at pictures
23:32 *** FnorZ has joined #boinc
23:32 <PovAddict> well
23:32 <PovAddict> after I did the maths, this is much bigger than I thought
23:33 <PovAddict> going one zoomlevel further means four times the pictures, so yeah...

23:38 <RomW> Android is a pain
23:38 <RomW> Grrrr
23:43 <zombie67> so are batteries
23:44 <RomW> lol
23:46 <RomW> That they are
