That was fast! Thx :)

No problem, The more people set up sanctuaries the better.

Rob, am I missing something here or is there something wrong with these stats.

The top one, E5-2630 v2 @ 2.60GHz gets 3x times the amount of GFLOPS/core. And then when you go down the list the i5's are beating the i7's?

Ok, yes, the b612 looks good, looks like we are the only ones voting on it ( My hot sanc + Mikes hot sanc).


Guys - we need to ask the hot sancs to run in ./biblepay-qt mode so we can expand our SanctuaryQuorum.

Id like to see more like 6-7 votes on the daily file, so we can prove some of the ground rules, like Am I in the 10% of the Quorum, and also, so I can increase the minimum testnet quorum level for a better test in the next release.

So anyone running the hot sanc in headless mode, can you please switch over to running in ./biblepay-qt (GUI) mode?

This is because the hot sanc must execute QT functions to process the Rosetta credits files.

Ok so sanctuaries need to run as GUI (QT),
With Windows I just use Remote Desktop,
For Linux I will have to google solution, and hopefully 1GB RAM Vultr server will support GUI?

Quick search, I am seeing many solutions: xRDP, VNC, X11, Blackbox, Ubuntu Desktop, Any recommended?

Shouldn't be too hard to set up. I'm running the sanctuary on a shared vCPU with 0.6GB of ram and using xfce.

Try this (I used vncserver in place of tightvnc): https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-vnc-on-ubuntu-16-04

Rob, that's my other account. I will create a new CPID whenever I have a new machine up and running so we can have more CPIDs in the system. The one that I posted for BOINC info is https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/show_user.php?userid=1981209, which in the getboincinfo actually does give me a RAC value.
Oh good, OK, so your rosetta account ending in 1981209, it has a CPID that is in 'list dccs', has RAC in the rosetta web URL but so far 0 magnitude in Biblepay?  Yeah, that sounds like the normal 24 hour lag issue, where Rosetta has not dumped the unix file yet (that we vote on), so to find out for sure, just go to your SAN directory and do 'cat filtered', and see if your CPID is in that list.  If its missing, this is just the 24 hour rosetta lag.

We can succintify, or sanctify all this later by A) Adding another Info variable to getboincinfo, and B) Asking Togo to summarize this in a sentence such as "Please wait 24 hours to see yesterdays boinc RAC and magnitude in Biblepay" but of course we want to make sure things are working perfectly first.

Yeah, believe me I will go out of my way to try to get this magfilter working on headless, but the issue is not small, so for now this is still the best course, is to ask half of our prod sanctuaries to run in ./biblapy-qt mode if-when this system is deployed to prod.

Im still using vultr for my sancs, so what I did is installed graphics on the machine (using Mike-Ts similar info post), then I just VNC in using the inbuilt vnc viewer (they have a link to VNC viewer on each server in the web list).

only 599 rewards for block?
i have to be 24hours on mining?

stil dont understand how it working .... any schema?

What are you trying to acheive? The BBP you see is from PoBH mining and is right. You will not see the Rosetta rewards until a day or 2 later.

Okay, my GUI mode masternode is set-up and in 'PRE-ENABLED' mode  :)

Everything seems to be working.

Also getting the 'exception' others reported btw:
Code: [Select]
EXCEPTION: N5boost10filesystem16filesystem_errorE       
boost::filesystem::last_write_time: No such file or directory: "/home/jaap-ubuntu/.biblepaycore/SAN/magnitude"

Yes 10% will be for PoW, 90% for PoDC (Rosetta). 10% of +-6000 is +-600, and that's what you are mining.

The top one, E5-2630 v2 @ 2.60GHz gets 3x times the amount of GFLOPS/core. And then when you go down the list the i5's are beating the i7's?

https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/cpu_list.php

Hi Mike,

Consider these two aspects also in that list:
1) The list is an average of gigaflops measured per machine per core, but no indication how long each machine runs per day.  So in this case, I could see the i5's beating the i7's if those particular owners run them 24-7.  (This is just a guess).  Feel free to research this more.

2) Although I have been fervently searching for people who run rosetta on a GPU and cannot find any evidence of GPU on rosetta, please feel free to search, It is possible Rosettas complex protein folding software libs may run better on machines with certain graphics coprocessor brands.
I searched for the top dog out of the 48,000 hosts, who accumulates More RAC in his class take a look at this guy:
https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/show_host_detail.php?hostid=2301665

Look at the Coprocessors Row:
Coprocessors   NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti (2048MB) driver: 388.13 OpenCL: 1.2

It could very well be that those machines with Nvidia GeForce video cards crunch 4-5* faster than those without, even though the software is not specifically using a GPU.  This is a new world of expirimentation and learning.

1) Great!  We are getting there now, this is heating up!  I see 7 or so team members have also joined.

2) I thought we fixed this in 1088q,  btw are you running 1088q with this one?

3) If so,please type 'exec dcc', then cd to ~/.biblepaycore/SAN
lets see if you have a magnitude file now?

If so I may need to add one more line of code.

Oops, haha! I'm still on the older version. Will update.

Awesome guide btw Togo, thanks!

Hey, did your exec getboincinfo ever start showing magnitude for you?  Lets let these guys understand when the mag rises in the client?

For me it took about 24 hours.
