Message 4954 - Posted: 25 May 2017, 21:37:06 UTC

The server requires BOINC server code upgrade to support GPU app,
Per-app credits, application selection and a couple of other things.

I have scheduled the upgrade for this weekend, the server will be stopped on saturday, in worst case it might even go completely offline for a couple of hours.

Great News, hope everything goes well with the update.

Also I´ve a question:
After the Update and with the new workunits i´ve seen on the server-status page, is there any estimated guess how long this project will be running until the last message is broken?

Can there be a separator between posts? They all just run together.

Also some spam users since the upgrade.

There are also no navigational features to get the rest of the site from the forums unless editing the URL. I always thought it was sad I had to go back to the main page to get the forums/My account at the old site.

Hope there will be different badges for CPU and GPU. :)

It's not predictable.

Perhaps css stylesheet is missing or something is still messed up in the web code. I'll look into this later, as there are more important issues after update.

Yep, after update the Stop Forum Spam filters were disabled, it's fixed now.

Probably because the 'new' web code is supposed to be used with menu at the top, which I think I'll have to add.

Will the new GPU clients bring back support for Linux, and will they be 64-bit? Also, when should I expect Enigma AV to be ported to Linux, and will that be 64-bit?

Still don't see the preferences option for multiple applications, or the GPU app; is this a "two part" change, first the server code, then actually putting the options in place? Do we have a timeline? Thanks!

I'd just delete all accounts that use E-Mails that are in the database at stopforumspam.

Why total count of workunits for each batch keeps decreasing on server status page?

I have done that already long time ago, and there is a script lurking in the background which is randomly checking all empty accounts against SFS blacklists, just in case they'll be listed ad some point. It removed tens of thousands of accounts but still there are many that are not listed.

The server removes 'active' flag from the blocks which reached target number of walks and it looks like status script ignores inactive blocks when counting total number of workunits. It was working before upgrade so probably I broke it while patching the stats script to work with new server_status.

The Enigma 0.76 credit is not counting correctly. I suppose that is the count since the new interface/system/whatever is implemented -- but since you have the total count for task completed, you can manually perform a subtraction to find the total 0.76 task completed/credits awards since the beginning.

Just a minor suggestion anyway :)

It is counting correctly, but it only counts credits added after server upgrade - previous code did not support credit_from_app.
Fix for this is quite easy, because 0.76 credits = total_credits - enigma_av_credits - enigma_gpu_credits and it requires just a few database queries, but it is low priority at this moment. I'm focusing on GPU support and first tasks may be available in just few days.
