vLHC@home recently consolidated with LHC@home, so I am no longer able to get any tasks through vLHC@home, but I am also not able to download any tasks from LHC@home, even though I have it added through the pool and synchronized with my BOINCManager. Any ideas why I'm not able to pull down any tasks from LHC@home?

CMS, LHCb and Theory are not added as default so poolowner would need to add those.

I'll be looking into the settings for these and each of the current projects soon when I get some time, hopefully by next week.

If someone wants to list each project that needs updated and what the settings should be changed to, into one organized post here, that would be very helpful! ♥

 

@Katiee, do you think this would be possible to change? I'm not sure if it would be possible to add options in future versions of your account manager, but it seems like it would be helpful to give users options of which tasks/subprojects they would like to run. I think this would be especially helpful if projects like World Community Grid are added in the future, since they have a number of projects to choose tasks for. This could be an option in the same way as the "No CPU, No NVIDIA, ATI, Intel GPU" options. Thanks!

It is IMPOSSIBLE for me to allow each pool user to set their own project settings, the pool has one account on each project, so changing those settings would affect EVERYONE on the pool, there is NO way around this sadly. It is completely out of my control. The only thing I can allow a user to control are the settings that are already currently available on your profile page, CPU/GPU/etc. Those are all client side options that the BOINC WebRPC can control. I guess it could be possible that the BOINC WebRPC has changed since the start of the pool, so I will look into if it is possible to set tasks client side now.. but I seriously doubt this has been changed.

 
World Community Grid isn't on the pool for a reason, they have a completely custom BOINC server build that didn't allow certain features that are absolutely required to function on the pool. I can't remember these off the top of my head.. there should be a post somewhere in this thread that went into detail about it, but I promise you at the time it just was not possible. I had originally thought I would be able to code workarounds specifically for just WCG to fix some of those issues, but I remember in the end running into huge roadblocks that prevented that. However, I will look into this at some point to see if anything has changed.

As for the whitelist, I am aware the pool has projects that are no longer on the whitelist, and are missing new projects that were added since the pool started. Adding/removing projects from the pool as they are from the whitelist is a much bigger task to do automatically then I had thought when I originally started coding the pool, I had planned to get that working at some point, but never had the time to finish it. And doing it manually meant keeping up with the Gridcoin whitelist myself, which I had been doing in the beginning but no longer really have the time to do so. I can't make any promises on this front, but it is at the top of my list to fix, whenever I can actually sit down to work on the pool code more.

 
I am really sorry for the slow development on the pool, but I never expected it to become this big, or to be the only one out there. Hopefully at the start of next year, after all the holidays have passed, I will finally have some time to sit down and start working on it again some. Trust me, I wish I could work full-time on the pool and Gridcoin services in general, but currently that is just not a viable option for me.. maybe someday that will change, but until then my real life job and well-being has to take priority. I really hope you all can understand.

In better news though, the new payment changes I made a couple weeks ago seem to have done the trick in fixing the issues it was having. Which means I can finally once again set the script to run automatically at a set time. Right now I am thinking of doing it every, Wednesday and Saturday night at Midnight EST, for the time being. Once I see how that goes and update the payment page to display the transactions better, I will try every day, Midnight EST.

my assumption this regarding pool.

wcg is whitelisted yes but doesnt support weak key if i remember properly and weak key is used to give partial access to the pools account to attach/detach a host without giving full access. the check boxes like for example Cpu if u check it u wont get cpu tasks but from my experience it sometimes takes a bit to work as i did get a few cpu tasks for a day before i stopped receiving them. the check boxes are for "no"

iFoggz,

 

Okay, thanks. My other main CPU project is Rosetta, but that doesn't seem to in the available projects, either. Same problem?

 

I'll experiment more with the settings and try leaving them for longer to see what happens, like you suggest. Thank you for your reply.

Thanks for building this Katiee!

 

Looks like a great way to get more payouts for crunchers just starting out/with low balances.

Very simple to use.

Hello guys,

 

Im still a newbie in Gridcoin but also more newbie in Gridcoin Pool, so i have some doubts

I have 3 pcs crunching 24/7 and i control all with BAM. I by myself have a magnitude of 140 and growing.
Is there advantages to change from BAM to Gridcoin pool??? I know that are different things, but tis impossible to continue with BAM using Grdicoin Pool right??

Do you think with gridcoin pool i will get more magnitude and by consequence have more and quicker payments??

 

Thanks

It depends on your crunching power however, I'd go solo for now until you know the set up for solo inside out. If they are windows, please ensure you are updated with SP and patches, have decent anti virus and malware protection. This is a good rootkits Beta tool from Malware bytes https://www.malwarebytes.com/antirootkit/. No advantages for Pool over solo as it stands at the moment. Backup your wallets regular. Use/buy spyshelter and malwarebytes etc. I know you want to see payments very soon however, it takes time. Even if you mine just one GRC it may be worth $1000 one day....who knows!

Im using windows in 3 PCs,but i have all updated and with a good antivirus protection.

For mining solo i think i have good power crunchers, one i7, one i5 and one xeon octacore, with one Nvidia GTX650 TI, AMD Radeon R7 360 and one old Nvidia GT9600.

You think that in pool i cannot get more magnitude???Uhm, ok thanks for your opinion!!!

Yes it is only my opinion. Try things out of course. If you have GPU then crunch on those. If you have money look at the new AMD CPU's coming out. Like GPU but with low power consumption. You might even consider selling kit to make 1 new set up. The cost/benefits are shifting https://www.scan.co.uk/products/amd-ryzen-5-1600x-s-am4-six-core-12-thread-36ghz-40ghz-turbo-16mb-cache-95w-cpu-retail

Whatever you decide have fun with it. All the best

Guys to be able to stake takes a lot of balance these days. I suggest a balance of AT LEAST 10k GRC to stake on your own within a feasible timeframe. Currently, magnitude does not count into the equation of how fast you stake, the bug has been reported.
If you have a balance below 10k GRC, I suggest joining the pool until you have enough GRC to stake on your own regularly. You could go pool mode with 2 of your PCs and the third could stay solo, the one running your wallet. That way you do not have to setup everything again :)

If you have 10k GRC, you will stake once a month as a rough(!) estimate. The more GRC you have the more likely you will stake more often than once a month.

Also I suggest taking a look at grcpool.com as an alternative to the pool.gridcoin.co as Katiee seems to be gone (Katiee if you read this, you could respond to our emails please) and grcpool.com is actively being developed and has lower fees (nearly none).

Thanks, i think i will do that to try out and see the results

Just one question: If i have my 2 pcs on the pool and the third (The one with the wallet) solo, will that affect my solo magnitude???
Will it grow or will go down???

But if i go out of BAM in 2 pcs i will have to finish the tasks im currently doing, or else i will loose them, rigth?

Best regards!!

Can I suggest simply buying Gridcoin? 10K GRC is $66 USD. Then you will be set to lever if the price rises.

Good suggestion.
If two of your computers go to pool mode, they can not longer contribute to your own CPID's magnitude. Thus, it will decrease slowly until it reaches the point stable point of your solo mining device.
