18:14 <Alessandro-Barbi> Hello all, i want know if i have to run 10 hours straight the test application CPU MD 9.02 of GPUGRID or it uses chekpoints?
18:52 <desti_T2> dunno
18:52 <desti_T2> just stop it and look where it restarts
18:57 <Alessandro-Barbi> when i stop it it restarts from 0
18:59 <desti_T2> how much was it running?
18:59 <Alessandro-Barbi> less than 2 hours
18:59 <Alessandro-Barbi> two times
18:59 <Alessandro-Barbi> when i shutdown pc

22:45 <PovAddict> hi zombie67
22:46 <Romulus> Title: Renderfarm@Home (at renderfarm.povaddict.com.ar)
22:46 <zombie67> hi
22:49 <zombie67> Nice! Account created!
22:51 <zombie67> 403 Forbidden
22:51 <PovAddict> good
22:51 <zombie67> what platforms will you have apps for?
22:52 <PovAddict> Linux/64bit at first, all later
22:53 <zombie67> okay.
22:53 <zombie67> set up RSS, so I know when you release work.
22:53 <PovAddict> I wish there was a sane interface to create forums
22:53 <zombie67> my machines are running windows VMs right now, and I will have to change them over to linux VMs when there is work.
22:55 <PovAddict> there we go
22:59 <PovAddict> zombie67: forums and news up
23:09 <zombie67> sweet!
23:11 <zombie67> okay to tell teammates about?
23:12 <zombie67> also, what is the RAM requirement going to be? And it will be a MT app, I assume?
23:16 <PovAddict> it can be MT, first test probably won't be but I'll surely add that very soon
23:17 <zombie67> 300mb seems like a low threashold. But I am no expert. I assumed it woule require many gb of ram per task.
23:19 <PovAddict> I think it depends on the input file, some images are more complex
23:19 <PovAddict> and it depends *directly* on the size of the final image, which I can tune arbitrarily
23:19 <PovAddict> I once did a render that would have taken a hundred gigs if I didn't split it in parts
23:20 <zombie67> ah, so the massive RAM requiremnt you spoke of earlier, does not apply in a multi-part BOINC scenario.
23:21 <PovAddict> I'll have to investigate if there's a way to split into different-sized parts, so that high RAM clients can get high RAM WUs and low RAM clients can still participate
23:22 <zombie67> MT is cool. But also hard to manage in a multi-project environment. It doesn't play well with other CPU tasks or GPU tasks, if you have multiple GPUs.
23:22 <zombie67> so if you can keep it single thread, that would attract more people.
23:23 <PovAddict> well, four-core app using 300MB of RAM, or four one-core apps using 300MB of RAM *each*? that's why MT is an advantage
23:23 <zombie67> 300 mb each is nothing.
23:23 <PovAddict> fine, replace 300MB with 2GB :P
23:24 <zombie67> actually that is still good for me. I make sure all my crunchers have 2gb per thread. :P
23:25 <zombie67> but yeah, there becomes a point where MT is more reasonable. But at 300 mb, even up to 1gb, per thread, single threaded tasks would be easier. Either way, I will be in.
23:25 <PovAddict> I'll probably need to learn to do MT apps anyway, because the app always uses threads
23:26 <PovAddict> if you tell it to use only one thread, it will create a thread to do the processing and leave the main thread controlling (and using no CPU)
23:26 <PovAddict> and for that I need to make the BOINC API aware of the threading stuff
23:27 <zombie67> okay to tell my teammates?
23:27 <PovAddict> yes
23:27 <zombie67> ok
23:27 <PovAddict> note the server might not be up 24/7
23:27 * PovAddict should rent a VPS
23:28 <PovAddict> there are some *really* cheap ones nowadays
23:28 <zombie67> I will move one VM from win64 to linux64, and attach it. 8 threads, 16gb. Send test units at sill.
23:29 <PovAddict> are there 32-bit Macs still around?
23:31 <zombie67> nope
23:31 <zombie67> the only 32 bit CPU in a mac was in the fist gen intel macs way back.
23:31 <PovAddict> oh, it only lasted *one* gen?
23:31 <zombie67> and the OS has been 64 bit for line 5 years now
23:32 <zombie67> yeah
23:32 <zombie67> *like
23:32 <PovAddict> ok, one less platform to worry about
23:34 <PovAddict> damn 1.30am
