RE: Mikey/Gundolf, I think

Mikey/Gundolf, I think your fix for einstien will only make the rest of Siran's problems worse. A lot of what he's describing with his computer being very laggy, sounds like it's having to hit the swap file for his other apps/os tasks. Increasing the amount of memory Einstein can use will get the WU's running but make his computer run even slower.

Einstein work units are memory intensive. The ABP2 ones aren't that bad at 50MB each, but the S5GCE ones take about 250MB each. On an i7 with HT enabled that's a memory footprint as high as 2GB of ram, and since Siran's computer only has 3GB available that leaves only 1GB free for everything else. On a heavily used system that's not much.

Siran: at this point I think unless you're willing to upgrade to a 64bit OS, and install more memory I don't think Einstein will be a good choice for you to run on all your cores at once. With your current system I'd suggest either limiting Einstien to between 2 and 4 cores and running a different, lighter project on the rest; or switching Einstein out for something else entirely.


Greetings Dan,

Funny you should mention this. I have been thinking that it was memory. So my original diagnosis, that Einstein is the culprit, was dead on! Woohoo! (sort of) :)

I would LOVE to upgrade to WinXP Pro 64 bit but I haven't seen anyone selling it, new, anymore. I refuse to go with Win7 just yet. I always give new Windoze OS releases a couple years before upgrading to them. I ran Vista on a laptop it came pre-installed on and swapped it out for Linux about 6 months later. Vista was crap. Sooooo..... I will stick with 32 bit for now and wait for SETI to get their new servers installed and running and the databases migrated.

I am trying to crunch Orbit, but we all know how that's going, right? ;) I may take a look at some of the other projects I have crunched.

Thanks for the suggestions, Dan. :)

Keep on BOINCing...! :)

I can't tell for sure, but I would think that not.

I only wanted to say that mikey had suggested the wrong preference.

And if you want to continue on this topic, I strongly recommend to open another thread. We are waaaayyy off topic here. ;-)

Greetings again Gundolf,

[off-topic]
I'm going with what Dan posted; what I told Mikey my solution is.
[on-topic]

Including this one, 5, the most number of posts made to the Einstein forum in a single day. Woohoo! :)

Keep on BOINCing...! :)

Are you only looking in retail? If so you'd've been hard pressed to find a copy even before Vista came out. There're still people selling it online though. I've included a link for the cheapest copy I found via a quick Google.

Greetings Dan,

I've always gone for the OEMs, they've always seemed to be the least expensive. My 32 bit version was $139.99 +shipping from TigerDirect. And that was OEM. That was November 2008 pricing. Hmmmm... I've had it for 2 years now. :) I just looked and TigerDirect has Win7 Pro 64 bit OEM version for $139.99, Home Premium OEM for $99.99.

At least I know XP Pro 64 is out there. I'll probably wait until after doing my taxes in a few months.

Anyway, Dan, as Gundolf pointed out, this is a bit off-topic. So I'll leave this thread for it's topic.

Thanks Dan, I was going to Google XP Pro 64 myself. :)

Keep on BOINCing...! :)

Back to the topic: it’s been a long time but I thought reaching two million called for a posting here …

This morning, 6 Oct, I reached my 20M goal for E@h. I was slowed a bit when hot weather caused my air conditioning to choke on the PC's heat output so several PC's went quiet for a couple of months. Meanwhile, my oldest Q6600 went "casters up". Now in autumn, my LAN is back near full capacity with their heat output augmenting my poor old furnace, pending only the repair of the old Q6600. And some of those higher end i7's are looking very tempting! :)


On 22 Nov I passed 22M for E@H. I was going to let it pass unnoticed, but I have a comparison of several computers that may be of interest ... comparing productivity on ABP and on Correlations for i7-950, i7-860 at multiplier 21 and 22, Q9550 and Q6600's based on Run Times for Validated ABP and Validated Correlations.
