1) Forums : Technical Support : Circling the drain on yet another BOINC project (Message 20726)

On my machine Cosmology is the 4th top credit garnering BOINC WU cruncher since inception, i.e., when SETI was 'it', 'the cat's pajamas', the bee's knees, and BOINC was only a gleam in some distributive-computing computnik's eye. That notwithstanding, nevertheless, and whatnot, I'll continue to crunch Cosmology WU's until you guys kick me out. Its all quite depressing.

Nevertheless, that notwithstanding - and whatnot - 2016 will finally prove to be the year of prosperity whereby I'll be able to upgrade the hardware platform of my primary desktop O/S.

Per this discussion:

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=6073

After some investigation into this matter, I determined this isn't all that much of an issue. While it may be ideal to have BOINC and any BOINC projects recognized by Comodo Internet Security suite out-of-the-box as trusted applications, if the BOINC projects & slots folders are desigated with 'installer / updateer' HIPS policy, sandboxing of any BOINC project binaries is circumvented.

Well, dunno, I seem to be doing fine.

I kicked up the VM space to 719.6 MB (rounding error and whatnot).

I've watched my box compute Cosmo at 100% VM for hours and hours and hours (with NO 'pg/out per sec') and anywhere from 1 to 200 MB PM free.

I spent TWO weeks to get SQL Server 2008 EXPRESS to run fine on my Win XP Pro SP3 box. Dunno what to tell you, but I did have to get into the WMI (and rebuild it).

You need more VM? I get you more VM...

Default swap size is 330 MB (configured to grow to 1790 MB). Is that not enough? Dunno, I've seen the commit charge go sky high while C@H wes running. I don't recall the value (its possible that grew over 1790, dunno). But, swap used hadn't exceeded the 330 MB, and there was still 120 MB free RAM.

What about the other two errors? Well, ok, the one abortion was because no heartbeat, but still. After 53 hours That last error really ticked me off. I'm participating in 12 other projects without any issues.

Hey, if my box is too obscelescent for its druthers, then it can't run on my box; nothing I can do 'bout that, oh well. However, IF it can behave w/in 768 MB, I'll give it all the swap it needs (if that's the hold up).

I've detached from the project. Every single one of the WU's I've processed since I've joined have resulted in 0 credit due to "compute errors".
