Title: Project Update
Post by: Dingo on September 16, 2017, 04:55:01 AM
This is another Russian project that has long running tasks between 6 and 70 hours and is very low on credit.  I have attached to do some work to give it a try but won't do much till they optimise their application a bit to reduce the length and they start giving better credit.

Title: Optimized app
Post by: kashi on November 26, 2017, 04:56:35 PM
Project contributor Daniel has for some time been working to optimize the RakeSearch application. He's now released these optimized apps for download.

I'm always keen on the idea of greater efficiency with optimized apps so decided to give them a go. Am using the Windows AVX version on my SandyBridge based computer and Windows AVX2 version on Skylake box. They are about 5-10 times faster than the current default application.

Instructions for downloading and installing are found in forum post here: http://rake.boincfast.ru/rakesearch/forum_thread.php?id=39

Optimised Application

There is no need for the Optimised application from 01 Jun 2019 onward.  They have optimised the new Rakesearch application and also started on the Rank 10 tasks.  You will need to delete your app_config.xml file from the projects/rake.boincfast.ru_rakesearch folder to get the nw tasks.

You will need to either abort or run the tasks to completion if you are running the optimised app.   Then delete the app_info.xml file because the new application reads a different checkpoint file and the one for the optimised app in not compatable.

Remeber to go to your preferences on the Project web site  (https://rake.boincfast.ru/rakesearch/prefs.php?subset=project)and un tick the old version so you don't get the old apps that run two or three times as long.

Thanks Dingo, I just downloaded some of the new Rank 10 tasks.
I'll see how they go.
