    Yup, i think so. :)
    I think you can set a queue aswell so its got enough to work on.

    Edit: Just set one up myself and it has an option for submit wus in batches.

    Console. I wouldn't bother with the gui unless you want to change the options regularly.
    Its in advanced options. Put yes for deadlineless wus and yes to submit in batches.

    It says 'change advanced options' and you say yes.
    Then there will be an option for 'deadlineless wus' set that to yes and an option for 'submit wus in batches' will appear.

    What do you mean?

    Mine keeps saying it can't get work, is that what yours is doing?
    Suggests the deadlineless wu server is down.

    yup that'd be correct - linky

    I believe the deadlineless server is the first in the list - the "AS (G)" is because before deadlineless work there was an option to do [email protected] work which could be sent in batches as it wasn't reliant on the previous WUs to be returned first
    When GAH work stopped the server started being used for dealineless work instead as there was a need for work suitable for machines which were a bit too slow or not on regularly enough for standard work

    bit of FAH/GAH history for you there :p

    Yes thats the ip... i see its in reject mode.

    Is it just me or are their servers down far too often?
    If you looked at the downtime percentage i bet its pretty high...

    yep I have to agree that recently they've not been very good at all - previously they've been fantastic though :confused:
    maybe so many people have come over from Seti that the load has just got that much larger :o


    they used to be a bit flakey and then Google got involved and donated a load of servers to the cause - seems that these are now not quite up to the job in hand :(

    Both mine have got work now, so it looks like its sorted itself out. Next time yours gets an internet connection it should sort itself out.

    I'm actually finding the deadlineless wus seem to have better points than normal ones...

    They mostly tend to be tinkers at about 240ish points but they're usually quite a bit slower than Gromacs etc. :)

    I bet they would be better than the 56 pointers even if they are slower...

    Depends on the rig.

    On my AMDs, they do get a better PPD but on my laptop (1.6GHz Dothan), the 56 pointers actually give me a better PPD.

    Next time we have a spate of 56 pointers i might try switching over to deadlineless for a while. ;)
