I've just passed the 6 Million border with einstein@home since August last year.

From DanNeely:

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.

Is the way for restricting Einstein to using only 2 or 4 cores usable for other BOINC projects as well? I have adequate memory for running Einstein on all the cores on my computers at once, but not enough to do it for some of the other BOINC projects I participate in.

As of today, Einstein just

As of today, Einstein just crossed 400 TFlops. Imagine how quickly it'll ramp up from here when they get an OpenGL app!

Just got my 1st million

Just got my 1st million credits on Einstein, 2 million on BOINC overall coming up shortly.

IIRC I was thinking of a hack in one of the xml files that control boinc; so it should be applicable to any project; but after half a year I'm not sure what I had in mind.

Unbelievably.

After over 6 years, I´ve done the same. Now I will have alook, if I can buy a ice for them.

No, I´m really a little proud of me.
