Is there someone who knows if it's possible to submit 2 time intervals

I made some guesses with separator from 2 time interval (space, comma, semicolon) but I received invalid time specification

Thanks Sekerob. You're right, I've not set "Run based on preferences"

It's my fault !!!

For the first time in the use of BOinc I tried to set a Day of Week override. In one computer, which normally autostart at 19PM and autoshut down at 08AM the day after, I setted, only for the past Monday, a day of week override of this type:
22:15-23:55

But nothing happened: as the computer started, also BM started.
What's wrong ? Is this a fault of mine or .... ??
In that computer I'm using 6.6.37 64b version

The prefs screen is setted 15% (in a previous attempt to reduce the CPU usage). Now I setted also <cpu_usage_limit>0.000000</cpu_usage_limit>.

I'll wait till the actual Seti CPU WUs will finish

May be this is a Boinc problem.
In the same box there is alo Aqua, and also this project has the same behaviour:
I setted only GPU work (the same way as Seti@home) but I have this message (request for a CPU work)

22/07/2009 15:59:36 AQUA@home Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
22/07/2009 15:59:36 AQUA@home Requesting new tasks for CPU

Post:
I want one of my boxes to crunch only CUDA WUs.
This box is attached to GPUGRID, Seti and SetiBeta.

GPUGRID is OK. It has only CUDA WU.
Seti and SetiBeta: I marked (in primary, home and work preferencies) :
- Seti@Home Enhanced : yes
- Astropulse : no
- Astropulse V5 : no
- No work from other application
- use GPU if available : yes
- Use CPU : no

But I continue to recieve Seti not CUDA WUs.
Is it correct ?? Is it possible to recieve only CUDA WUs.
Is this a Boinc problem, or a Seti problem ??
Or is ...... my problem ???
This box is AMD 5200+ with WIn XP 64b
BM 64b 6.3.38
I searched in the forum, but I haven't seen anything dealing this situation

Ok Eric !
I think you must add another section:

Active Tasks Set

This section is at the bottom of the file.
After that section there is also other general information

I think the next step may be the brute list of all the parameters.

I haven't yet worked with Wiki, may be this is the first time I use it.
By the way, I have a big problem: I'm not so fluently with english, I'm italian


My specific interest was for :

duration correction factor
short/long term debt

12) Message boards : Promotion : Considerations about the future of BOINC GPU platform (Message 22962)
Posted 9 Feb 2009 by zioriga
Post:
I’m a little confused about the future of the BOINC GPU platform:
I mean the problem of supporting NVidia and/or ATI and/or the future S3 cards.

The initial development was for NVidia cards and ATI cards couldn’t
attach to gpu projects.

Now there is a first ATI project (Milkyway – see
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/forum_thread.php?id=551#9716 and
http://www.zslip.com/) and NVidia gpu powered computers cannot attach.



Is this the future of the GPU BOINC computing ????
2, or more, worlds that cannot cooperate ?????
or, worst, that compete one against the other ???
or the program developer must write a more than geometrical progression (CPU, OS, GPU)
program versions ?????

I don’t think this is the spirit of the BOINC platform !!
As much as I know, and I can be wrong, there is a gpu common platform: opencl
which is supported from both Nvidia and ATI. May be this the correct answer
to this prolification, at least, of different gpu constructors ?????


Is this platform supported by BOINC ??? And/or can BOINC force the use of
a common gpu software platform ???
I think the Science will be very gratefull for this simplification.
13) Message boards : The Lounge : CUDA OpenCL explanation please (Message 22878)
Posted 4 Feb 2009 by zioriga
Post:
I think that the most important thing is : will Boinc manager support OpenCL ??
And consequently all the projects will be developed in a common standard ???
The actual situation I think it isn't OK.
Developing only for NVidia means lose about half of the total computing power

Have you checked your debt number with BoincDV to make sure they aren't lopsided.

Also check your numbers for your offending computer at the projects that won't DL new work. They have been known to get way out of whack and prevent new work from downloading.

These are mine for my Core2 at Seti.

% of time BOINC client is running 99.1804 %
While BOINC running, % of time work is allowed 99.8513 %
Average CPU efficiency 0.957079
Result duration correction factor 0.528213


Excuse me but I don't know where search for those data. I can say also that is only from few days (may be 4 or 5) that I have this behaviour

My other computers are working fine: only this has this behaviour (is an AMD 2700+. the other ones are AMD 3000+, AMD 1800+ and Centrino 1600.

I have my BOINC client attached at about 30 project, but now there is only 1 project in the pool area (and working).
I tryied to "Update" all the other projects but the most frequest reply is

03/11/2006 16.13.46|SETI@home|Sending scheduler request: Requested by user
03/11/2006 16.13.46|SETI@home|(not requesting new work or reporting completed tasks)
03/11/2006 16.13.51|SETI@home|Scheduler RPC succeeded [server version 507]

I know that the only way to receive new WUs is to Update, but this seems not working!

Is there anyone who know the reason ??
Thanks in advance
