Questions / Re: CPU % usage graph - problem with multithreaded tasks
« on: March 13, 2019, 08:57:11 pm »
Hi !

I noticed the CPU % usage graph, as seen on "Tasks" tab, doesn't display as expected on multithreaded tasks :

- sometimes the graph is really "low" (but the numbers indicates a high value, which is confirmed by any other CPU usage monitor) ;

- sometimes the graph "explodes", going outside (to the left) of the dedicated column.

... Not very important, but I've seen this since a long time and never took the time to flag it :)

Thanks for BoincTasks an TThrottle !
I cached a bit late, what's the project?

In a strange turn of events after a bugcheck and some updates being installed BT started working again.
Great, so it was probably some kind of bug in Windows.
Sometimes you don't want to know.

Wish List / Re: Please add Status Postponed

I'm running a lot of LHC-Tasks. Sometimes a task gets "postponed: xxxxxxxx".
Added to the wish list.

I have a low Nvidia card running GPUGRID tasks, and sometimes estimated time > deadline
I would like to have an option to check every e.g. 15 minutes, if estimated time > deadline + X hours, abort the task automatically
So that I do not do this manually, nor do I complete the task but not receive any credit.
This option could be added in the Warnings tab
Also an email could be sent via Cloud when this happens as a notification
This is basically a project and BOINC problem.
What you could do is limit the amount of work .

Wish List / Re: Extra Tasks Columns
« on: February 07, 2019, 02:13:58 am »
Add extra columns:
GPU [%]
CPU [Freq]
GPU [Freq]

I am running GPUGRID and I do get the feeling that the GPU is not fully utilized.
I would prefer if I can remotely see the % and the actual freq on the GPU.
Also it would help in case of throttling to see the level of frequencies being used.
Don't think this is possible, the BOINC client doesn't provide the info.

OK no worries, hope your un-swamped soon ;)
It's Murphy's law, things happen when you already too busy.
A lot of different work in PHP and Javascript, also interesting to do.

I have 1809 running on my system.
Right now I'm swamped in other work, so I will not be able to get an update out for some time.
Exit BoincTasks.
Run regedit and rename the folder Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\eFMer\BoincTasks
Run BoincTasks again, see if it's something in the settings.

Questions / Re: wild CPU temperature swings, but not really

But it isn't HWiNFO where the error is popping up, it is in TThrottle.  When I look at the temperature trend on HWiNFO for the same sensor, it is "normal".
That indicates TThrottle looses the connection with HWiNFO.
Locking the computer shouldn't do anything.
My guess Windows blocks the connection.
You could try GPUZ instead.

Go to the tab external and check HWiNFO and select the right temperature source.
Actually, this is happening with HWinfo engaged.  I have TThrottle reading the Tctrl/Tdie sensor for the CPU, and the GPU thermal diode for the integrated graphics.

I actually had to install HWinfo and read these sensors because if I don't, the temperature it is "reading" is 0 deg C, constant, with no fluctuation.

You can contact HWinfo, they might have a solution.

My computer is a Ryzen 3 2200G with a ASRock B450 Pro4 mobo, stock cooler, running Windows 10.  No discrete GPU.
TThrottle is using the AMD driver, it probably stops recognizes it without a monitor, that's not an uncommon problem.

HWiNFO reads the card more directly.
If HWiNFO is running all the time, TThrottle can interface with HWiNFO and can use it's temperature.

Go to the tab external and check HWiNFO and select the right temperature source.

I installed the 1.79 version, but it failed like 1.78. No user interface becomes visible (and no icon on taskbar's notification area) and after 10 crash dumps the program terminates itself.

I believe that I ended up accidentally installing win10 updates that are still in testing phase. So I decided to return to the previous version of windows 10 and now 1.79 started without a problem (after I had removed the 10 crash dump files). Now windows is again downloading new updates but this time I try not to do anything to install "extra" updates like I did yesterday. It seems that if you go to windows update and manually check for updates, you may end up with updates that haven't had final acceptance yet. This of course is not mentioned on the update window  >:(.

If the failure happens again I will report it here.
I just read that Windows sometimes installs early releases by accident when you manually activate updates.

Hi,
My Windows 10 host just installed the feared 1809 update. Now BoincTasks 1.78 can not start but it creates 10 crash dump files before giving up. The dump files vary in size between 140 to 155 kbytes. I tried to install the 1.78 version again but to no avail. Should I try to install the 1.79 beta version next or what?
Please upgrade to 1.79 so we have the same version running.

Next try running BoincTasks as Administrator and go to the General Tab and remove the check start BoincTasks at login and set it again, that is if you want to run it automatically.

What I think is the new version did something to the registry.

Questions / Re: how to locked the position of the temp display
« on: November 18, 2018, 03:04:54 am »
(Moving the window around by clicking on it and dragging the top white field.) yes this what I do evertime this happend, so there is no way to lock the position is it correct?
If the screen resolution changes not, it should be back in place when switch back to the original.
Placing the window somewhere in the upper left corner might help.

If you change the resolution, things go wrong as the windows used the absolute location on the screen.
Moving the window around by clicking on it and dragging the top white field.

If the location doesn't stick on a reboot, shut down the computer without using the off button. The on/off button often wants to shutdown A.S.A.P. without storing all the registry.
