Very nice.

- Still crunching along, on VirtualBox 5.1.x.
- Hoping for Speed to complete some tasks soon.
- Nitro is now also looking for a task, since he did complete one recently.
- Still no word on RNA World project getting an updated VBoxWrapper to support v5.2.x :(

Had a power outage last night - a transformer down the road busted.
Good news - All 15 of my in progress tasks survived, without needing me to intervene with VM recoveries.

Apart from the power outage in itself this is good news!

Happy holidays!
- Speed recently completed a long-runner! #FeelsGoodMan
- Both Speed and Nitro are still looking for new tasks, which are currently VERY hard get!
- Still no news from RNA World, on updating their VBoxWrapper, to support VirtualBox 5.2.x. Oracle is on 5.2.4 already! #Frustrating

Nitro has some real long-runners he's working on. So I put him in "Get 'er done" mode (Use at most 50% CPUs, so each task gets a full core instead of a hyperthreaded core), in hopes that they get done quicker.

My reason is because RNA World isn't being administered properly any more, and I don't know how long I can keep running VirtualBox 5.1.x on Windows Insider Builds, without an updated VBoxWrapper from RNA World. I wish things were improved. I'm starting to lose hope in the admins.

Having fun!
- Really happy the admins released the new 1.19 app version, to support VirtualBox 5.2.x. I'm really looking forward to getting a new task, which will use that new app version, so I can further verify that it works! :)
- Speed completed his "out of BOINC" task that I had been working on. So, now he is for sure looking for 3 new tasks.
- Both Speed and Nitro are looking for work.
- Otherwise, all tasks are progressing nicely.

Re: Calculating task completion estimates

Catastrophe, but hopefully recoverable!

The bad news:
This past weekend, Speed lost 6 tasks, including 1 he had just received recently. From the best I can tell, my best hunch is that I improperly upgraded my VirtualBox version while the tasks were running. I probably should refrain from attempting those sorts of things, at 4am, in the middle of a 36-hour LAN party, while being awake for 20 hours straight :)

The good news:
I've contacted the admins, and they're going to allow me to try to resume from backups (which I had, losing a week of work on each), and complete the 6 outside of BOINC. Additionally, it occurs to me that I can resume 2 older ones that had failed over the past couple years, to also complete them outside of BOINC. It'll mean manual babysitting and manual snapshotting, for all 8, but I can manage.

The other 3 PCs are still rocking just fine. Nitro even completed 1 recently, so ... My chin is up!

Still crunching along just fine :)

- RacerX completed a task recently!
- The latest Windows Insider builds are working great with VirtualBox!
- Manual babysitting of tasks on Speed isn't as painful as I thought, now that I'm used to it.
- Speed picked up a task in BOINC. So, I've decided to pause 1 of my 8 that are outside of BOINC, since hyperthreading doesn't benefit these.
- Nitro continues to run at "Half Threads" (50% CPUs), since he's my slowest PC, and his 2 tasks may take a long time (no wingman completions for estimates!)
- There are only 110 BOINC RNA World monsters out there currently - Awesome!

Re: Calculating task completion estimates

Unread postby Jacob Klein » 03.03.2018 14:39

Having fun still!

BOINC progress:
- Speed completed an "outside of BOINC" task successfully.
- RacerX completed a monster in BOINC, too.
- Speed also picked up another "inside of BOINC" task.
- Monsters are getting hard to find - only 108 BOINC ones are left!
- I have switched Zathras to also running 50% CPUs, to match Nitro, so they both can get their monsters done quicker.

Spectre and Meltdown Performance:
- Speed picked up a BIOS update, A13, which included the CPU Microcode update for the Spectre vulnerability.
- I wanted to test Spectre Performance, so I tried to roll it back by installing A12, but got hilarious messages from the installer that prevent rollback (screenshot below).
- Spectre and Meltdown performance concerns and reasons, are thoroughly documented in this amazing article:
https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/01/heres-how-and-why-the-spectre-and-meltdown-patches-will-hurt-performance/
- Yesterday I was able to test the performance hits on Speed.
- My conclusion is: I'm seeing a considerable hit, for hyperthreads that are on a core that has a thread doing heavy kernel-mode activity (which VirtualBox does)! Any thread on the same core as a monster, will suffer.
- This may actually change my behavior a bit. I usually could easily compute+game while running 8 VM tasks on my 8-core-16-thread CPU. But now, especially when gaming (my games usually saturate 2 CPU threads), I may want to suspend 2 or 3 VMs, to prevent stuttering. We'll see.
- I don't have an easy way to directly measure how bad the performance of a single VM is affected, mainly becuse I have no means to gauge real progress. But I'm betting it is substantial, possibly up to 100% slower! :(
- You can use InSpectre to easily turn the protections on and off, to test performance. Requires a restart of Windows after changing any setting.
https://www.grc.com/inspectre.htm

Edit:
I was able to do some performance testing of the BIOS update, and the Spectre Protection it provides.
