Topic 197824

I usually just run BRP (Perseus Arm Survey) on a legacy Nvidia GPU, using my CPU to run ATLAS from LHC at CERN. But yesterday I noticed one instance of Gravitational Wave search S6Bucket Follow-up #1 running in BOINC. That was weird in itself, since I had not allowed it in Preferences. It also marked the second time my Preferences had changed (or been changed) without my knowledge. I didn't mind, though, since Task Manager did not show any unusual CPU or memory usage. The WU ran for 26,983.81 s, with a CPU time of 26,763.55 s. It ended with a Validate error, though.

Can anybody tell me what a typical CPU and memory usage for S6Bucket is? Let me know if I need to provide more information. Thanks.

I think the current behavior here at Einstein is that when a new application is introduced the corresponding new preferences item starts out as enabled.

However, if it is your desire not to run Einstein CPU jobs, I think if you select No for the Use CPU Einstein preference that your choice may be durable.

Yes Einstein seems to do

Yes Einstein seems to do that, in my case it has not worked out well, production really slowed down.
