Re: Throttles
no way in the applet. You can download a throttle application from the BOINC site, but it sets a limit on ALL apps unless you edit the registry.

I would use bob's technique.

Thanks for signing up. But I notice no results have been returned. If you are using the BOINC agent, there was a problem with some firewalls that stopped results from actually getting transmitted. It will show success at your end but never get sent in.

If you are having such problems, they have a new version (4.11 I think) that works around the issue. If you are having other problems, maybe someone here can help.

Eitherway, we thank you for contributing.

HEY YOU DO-NOTHING 126 VISITORS!....AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!
Sign up with Team EvC and do something useful while you waste your time here: we're moving up the chart with a bullet.

You don't have to register at EvC to sign up for Team EvC at the World Community Grid.

Hell, don't even sign up with Team EvC if you want to go it alone. But sign up.

Your mother would be proud.

Re: Throttles
I found where I saw it -- in the device manager on the World Community Grid device preferences:
http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/ms/device/viewBoincProfileConfiguration.do?name=Default

Advanced Options
Processor Usage
Project Weight: 100
Do work while computer is in use? Yes
Do work while computer is running on batteries? No
Do work only after computer is idle for: 3.0 minutes
Switch between applications every: 120 minutes
On multiprocessors, at most use: 4 processors

Disk and Memory Usage
Write to disk at most every: 60 seconds
Leave applications in memory while preempted? No
Leave at least: 0.1 Gigabytes of disk space free
Use no more than: 75% of total disk space
Use no more than: 75% of total virtual memory

But when I look at Task Manager Processes it's at 100%.

At least with BOINC it doesn't seem to surge up and down the way the other grid agent does, and seems to interfere less with usage as a result (had a real problem with a graphics program at work with the mouse stopping and starting as you are trying to draw things).

We'll see how it goes.

On another note, it seems that both agents are reporting results - BOINC and UD? Do you need to have the UD agent installed to run the grid on BOINC?

Thanks

Re: Throttles

No. And remember that they try to play nice so running both simply means each gets half the CPU time if you are using just one. I tried to test the difference and what I found is that running both reported higher number for Total Run Time each day but fewer results returned. I decided to stop and uninstall the UD app. Since then results are up but Total Run Time down.

I saw the same thread you linked to but I think that the key item may be the Project weight line. The others seem to address virtual memory and disk access. Unfortuantely I can't find specifics on what Project Weight really refers to.

Re: Throttles
No, I haven't. I'm running on a desktop so I haven't had any performance issues yet. Sorry.

AbE:

actually, I went back and looked and it appears that I set project weight to 60 in the BOINC profiles and made that the default. Unfortunately I do not know when I did that so I cannot tie it to any hard data.

Edited by jar, : No reason given.

Re: Statistics up to 1st. September 2006
I'd like to point out that we have also contributed over 16 YEARS of computer time, returned over 14,000 results on four different projects examining Genome Folding, HIV Research and Cancer Research. Team EvC has done great and at the rate we are producing now:

Avg. Run Time Per Calendar Day (y: d:h:m:s) 0:021:08:44:10

we will add a years worth of calculations about every 17 days.

The folk at EvC Never cease to amaze me.

heheh.

I moved to colorado.
some of you who payed attention will remember that I used to live in Virginia.

here's the funny thing. I left my computer in virginia, with the world grid agent. it's still running.

and now I've a new one--laptop. and I just installed the world grid.
so, I've no two computers churning out results.
yay.

yeah . . .

(and this is post #600! yippee!. i would've celebrated number 500, but I wasn't paying attention.)

Days since last update: 50
Total Run Time 270 -> 242
Points Generated 274 -> 230

Our steady climb up the rankings continues and we've now contributed well over 20 years of run time. Thanks to everyone again.

Re: Belated statistics for September 2006
Actually we are coming up on our first anniversary which will be on 11/24. By that time we will have contributed over 22 Years of computer time to research. We will have returned nearly 20,000 results to the different projects we are helping.

We sure could use some more help. This is a great project with possible significant outcomes. There are now three projects running.

Help Defeat Cancer (Launched July 20, 2006)
World Community Grid and The Cancer Institute of New Jersey, Rutgers University and UMDNJ - Robert Wood Johnson Medical School will be examining Tissue Microarrays to determine how to improve the treatment of cancer with earlier and more targeted diagnostic tools.

Human Proteome Folding - Phase 2 (Launched June 23, 2006)
Human Proteome Folding Phase 2 (HPF2) continues where the first phase left off. The two main objectives of the project are to: 1) obtain higher resolution structures for specific human proteins and pathogen proteins and 2) further explore the limits of protein structure prediction by further developing Rosetta software structure prediction.

FightAIDS@Home (Launched November 21, 2005)
FightAIDS@Home is a project focused on using computation methods to identify candidate drugs that have the right shape and chemical characteristics to block HIV protease. This approach is called "Structure-Based Drug Design", and according to the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, it has already had a dramatic effect on the lives of people living with AIDS.

Team members can choose to work on any one or all of the projects. They can also choose to concentrate on just one or two but have the program accept work for others if there is no work available from the prefered one.

Folks, this really is a very simple, safe and virtually cost free way to help do science.

Re: Update
To put those statistics in perspective, there are over 13,000 Teams now at World Community Grid.

Team EvC ranks 222nd. in computer time contributed and 240th. in the number of results returned.

EvC has well over 3000 members. If only 5% of our members contributed to the World Community Grid we could contribute so much more.

If you look at the list of people who are contributing, one fact pops out.

Those contributing are mostly the Atheists and Agnostics. It is the Atheists and Agnostics that are carrying the load with a small spattering of Liberal Christians and general Theists.

What IS missing are all the vocal Biblical Christians.

Come on all you Christians here at EvC.

Here is a chance to actually do something for the least of these instead of simply preaching platitudes.

For 2007 let's see if we can get some help from all of you Christians.

Join the effort.

These are all great projects, projects that may help everyone, Theist, Agnostic and Atheist alike.

Let's set a goal of 50 years of computer time generated in 2007 and over 50,000 results returned.

It costs nothing.

It takes almost no effort on your part.

Let's see if during 2007 Team EvC can double what we contributed last year.
