18:57 <MiniFridge> Is anyone familiar with World Community Grid here?

19:20 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

20:03 <MiniFridge> My Hard Drive manufacturer has set in place for normal operations with their warranty as rating the drive for writing to it at most 6GBs today (if I remember correctly).

20:03 <MiniFridge> Approximately how much does BOINC write to my Hard Drive per day?

20:06 <Jagaer> A lot, which is why I ran it from a ramdrive

20:07 <Jagaer> mount -t tmpfs -o size=10G none /home/user/boincram

20:07 <Jagaer> chmod 777 /home/user/boincram

20:07 <Jagaer> cp -r /home/user/boinc/* /home/user/boincram

20:08 <Jagaer> chown -R user:wheel /home/user/boincram

20:08 <MiniFridge> so, a ramdisk would be the best solution?

20:08 <MiniFridge> What free RamDisks do you reccomend?

20:08 <Jagaer> I found it was, then just ran a sync every 10 minutes

20:08 * Jagaer runs linux

20:09 <Jagaer> while true

20:09 <Jagaer> do

20:09 <Jagaer> rsync -av --partial --delete /home/user/boincram/* /home/user/boinc

20:09 <Jagaer> read -t 600 -n 1 && break

20:09 <Jagaer> done

20:09 <Jagaer> rsync -av --partial --delete /home/user/boincram/* /home/user/boinc

20:09 <MiniFridge> oh, so your own script?

20:10 <Jagaer> those are both scripts, the line "mount -t tmpfs -o size=10G none /home/user/boincram" creates the ramdrive

20:10 <MiniFridge> Jagaer, how do you know it writes a lot?

20:10 <Jagaer> monitored disk write

20:11 <Jagaer> it wasn't a lot of bytes, but it was a lot of writes, which is just as bad for an ssd

20:11 <Jagaer> bbiab hockey back on

20:36 *** efc has joined #boinc

20:40 <MiniFridge> thanks anyways, Jagaer. I'm going to try to see if I can monitor the writes, though.

20:45 *** whynot has quit IRC

20:45 <Jagaer> I was running on 32 cores too, so that might make a diff

20:49 <MiniFridge> 32? Wow.

20:49 <MiniFridge> Did you buy a dedicated server?

21:00 *** chek2fire has joined #boinc

21:00 <Jagaer> Nope, its my workstation, heres a pic

21:02 <Jagaer> snapshotoflife.com/hardforum/WaterCoolingVidSmall.JPG

21:02 <Jagaer> Mostly used to test VMs before putting them into production

21:07 *** Jagaer has joined #boinc

21:10 <MiniFridge> oh, so you work as a system administrator?

21:10 <MiniFridge> or a similar position?

21:12 <efc> That's a lot of ram slots

21:16 <MiniFridge> bbk

21:16 <MiniFridge> *bbl
