African Rainfall project
« on: July 21, 2020, 05:58:21 PM »

What is the number of simultaneous task people run on this project? I see its heavy on Ram and disk space but our modern PC's should handle it, especially with SSD and DDR4. Default Seems to be 1 but wondering what other people run to maximise our efforts

Greetings turbo0

Well on my 8 thread systems, I would only run 4 at a time, was running a mix of SCC and FAH2, which worked in getting a constant feed of workunits, but I haven't done ARP for about 2 months (wow has it been that long), as I was at max cores on COVID19 workunits, with the occasional TB workunits.

Others may have a nore recent update, on how they are progressing.

Cheers

I had all my cores crunching ARP last week. Yes it's a bit of memory hog and the tasks take over 1 day to complete. I'm not sure what the difference in times are if I only ran say half the amount of wu's.
I did notice my GPU work slowed down though. Whether that's from memory or just too many core running (even though I reserve 2 cores for a GPU work unit) My GPU work is running much better now that I'm onto Primegrid.

I'd just got flat out if you're chasing a badge. Takes forever though. Credits aren't great for ARP.

Hey everyone.
I know this is a bit of an older thread and it is not mentioned here but if you go into device profiles (settings --> device manager --> device profiles) you are able to create a custom profile which lets you change the project limits (maximum number of tasks). It took me a while to find it so perhaps someone else is yet to find it.

Thanks
Ben

Am crunching COVID and ARP together and i get one ARP wu per machine and the rest COVID makes for a long crawl on getting anywhere on ARP.
