View Full Version : jlanger 17 scores :?

looking at your scores for evrything you do it seems you get a minus pretty soon after negating much of the work done http://marcc.no-ip.org/SoB/User.php?User_ID=5480 .
was just posting to bring this to your attention so you can fix / solve problems and keep doing 1 number rather than changing and then recieving a minus as it was not completed.

Something I've found useful with SOB is to start a task, record the k / n combination, complete a couple of intermediate results and let it send them (check mark against send intermediate results in configuration) then stop. Reboot pc and check it restarts the same k / n combo. Let it complete at least one intermediate result. Stop reboot and continue. Now if you wish you can go to config and uncheck the send intermediate results flag and let it run until it completes the Proth test and is ready to report.
If SOB messes up and gets a new k / n pair then follow the steps from the SOB official forum to "Recover a lost Proth test". Warning: involves a Registry edit.
For some unknown reason the authors of the SOB application STILL haven't fixed this insidious bug that has been around since the project started. It wasn't too important when SOB tasks only took a couple of days to complete. Now that they take several days on a medium to fast P4 and about a week on a fast Athlon XP its high time the programmers fixed it so is doesn't happen. [rant off/]

yep, you would have thought something would have been done to correct it by now. it is very annoying when you drop a unit and recieve a large minus score, but with the SOB registary tool it is very easy to change the number.

yea I noticed as well - Didn't know anything could do - Thats why I basically stopped running it.

apparently it is faster, but i havent tried it yet.

I seem to have a 30 M cEMs spike today and I can't explain it except for the possibility that someone else may have registered work against my UID.
The only machine that I have the SoB client running on was pottering along at about 650 K cEMs, but it has just completed a proth test and now there is a spike. It is running the latest client though.
I will be able to check the n and k details in about 10 hours time and then I'll have more info.

i see on team prime ribs pages you really did rocket that hour, it will probably disappear when something is updated just has gone to you for the moment lol.

So what caused the spike????
Click on my signature and check out the spike there. It only went to about 8M but it didn't go away and it gave me credit for that work. I'd like to have 24 hours at that rate....

cant say i have found the graphs to be particually accurate, check TPR's web site for more accurate scores and see if it still occurs there.
example: if you check my last few hours output it has been 0 yet SOB official website says for past 24 hours i have had 400k produciton constantly

Yea they're a little wacky sometimes.
01-07-2005, 08:24 PM
sometimes have you ever known yours to be 100% right ???

Lost 169,000. this a.m. :cry: :cry:
01-10-2005, 02:17 PM
ouch.... what happened???
01-10-2005, 02:23 PM
no idea - !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SoB is sensitive to OCing.
I wonder if the machine is O/C'd and their collector is subsequently rejecting the proth test ?
Is that machine OC'd ?
01-11-2005, 02:40 AM
No - I have about 7 machines on it. Only thing I did was upgrade some of clients that were not running to new version then start?
01-11-2005, 07:19 AM
well to get a minus you had to do some work say to 10% total, then lose your progress file so as you re-load SOB you are back at 0%, hence the minus score for the 10% of lost work.
01-11-2005, 05:48 PM
just wondering why my dialy work is not about 700 which i have worked it out to be http://marcc.no-ip.org/SoB/Team.php?Team_ID=83 if you take the new total from the total 24hours ago it is around 700 but according to the stats page it is 177 :S
01-11-2005, 09:46 PM
Ouch Empty_5oul! You just posted a minus 154,000 McEMs in SOB. What happened?
01-12-2005, 12:35 AM
hehe - not as bad as my -169,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!
01-12-2005, 12:37 PM
i know, i re-installed it on a P4 where it had disappeared from :S, i made up for that though a few hours before - which i had planned so it countered my minus.
01-12-2005, 06:16 PM
not really related to this thread but i wanted to show i am in the top 10 :thumbleft: not long now beerknurd, you see i have been out producing you hitting 10,000 to 15,000 per hour, its just if i can keep it up :P
01-12-2005, 06:22 PM
Ya'll can have SOB for now - I'll take DHEP while it is up, then come back. lol. The -169,000 is discouraging though. :cry: :cry: :D :D
01-12-2005, 06:26 PM
lol, and as you switch i may well take your position in DHEP :P
** or try to you had a load of office machines which i cannot compete with so maybe not lol.
01-13-2005, 12:08 AM
I don't get the SOB - I can put 8 pcs on it, all at least 1.2 ghz (AMD/Intel) and still not get over 1M.
01-13-2005, 12:32 AM
Let them go for at least 1 hour to let the scores catch up.
01-13-2005, 08:19 AM
try doing it overnight and then when you get up next morning check the scores then as they take a little time to warm up and will send larger scores after the first hour or 2.
