Hi,

 

I've check all my configuration set to 80% max CPUs/usage. All Charity Engine tasks have a status of "Running (0.001 CPUs)". How do I get it to run at 1.0000 CPU?

Hi Barabbas -- the Charity Engine task that you see running at 0.001 CPUs is specially configured to run that way, as it does not need significant CPU power. Instead, other tasks will run alongside it that can make use of the CPU. So long as you are getting other tasks (which could be from public research projects, such as Rosetta, World Community Grid, ClimatePrediction, or others), it would appear things are running as they should be.

You should be seeing points awarded for this low-CPU Charity Engine task, too.

Hello Tristan,

I understand that the visible process is only a wrapper, but I NEVER see any work done (or hear the fan) , I seem to get points just for letting the engine switched on.

I use Windows 10 and an AMD CPU Ryzen:

 

Prozessor    AMD Ryzen 5 4500U with Radeon Graphics            2.38 GHz
Installierter RAM    16,0 GB (15,4 GB useable)
Systemtyp    64-Bit x64-processor

Karsten.

It is a goal of ours to not be obtrusive and to minimize fan noise, so that much is a good thing. However, I see that your account has not attached successfully to public research projects. I've made an adjustment on our end to try to fix that next time your computer connects / synchronizes with Charity Engine.

@Tristan:  I restarted the CE desktop, I aborted the old (8 days old) task, and I see a new task "wu_1619...." but still there is no work done.

Please see the logfile here: https://c.gmx.net/@334609157082581438/QSd-2O3oTBK2Ie4M2Wk34g

Thank you for the support.

Karsten

I see that you have earned some entries into the latest drawing, but wanted to confirm that things are working as you expect. Are you seeing points increasing and tasks being done?

@Tristan :

Hello Tristan, generally I see points increasing (but in between total points decreasing, how is that possible?).

But I always see "No tasks sent", "No tasks available", "got 0 new tasks" etc.

Regards, Karsten

Barabbas, sorry to hear you're having trouble. I made a change so that next time your computer connects, it should get another project or two. These would work in addition to the Charity Engine task that runs at a low CPU rate and should use the 80% limit that you set.
