Any idea when there will be support for the new Raspberry (64 bit)?

I'm pretty sure that our application will work fine on RPi3 under Ubuntu and Debian straight away...

Hello,

I am currently usign the Raspberry Pi 3 model now and glad to say that it is working without any issues. Last time I checked it already had about 9 tasks sent back and they were valid.

Actually surprised that it is working so quickly :) Glad to see that your project supports this as this is a very low power alternative.

Thank you very much :)

You have to know, that is very nice to find that apart of problems some people also like our work :)

I know - if you don't like you will not use your computer for it, but.. some nice feedback are always welcome :)

No problem krzyszp.

I wish more project were to use this. Glad that it was an easy set up.

So checked back to see how my raspberry pi 3 is doing and apparently so far it has crunched 100k worth of boinc credits in a month. I originally activated on July 17th and now its Aug 17th.

This is a pretty good number of results (at least in my opinion). This is also setting CPU utilization to 70% so that it does not fry itself. Definitely will be looking on setting up another one or two to keep crunching for this project.

If anyone else has the same set up I would love to hear how your Raspberries are doing :)

147+K running U@H on 3 cores since 9-Jun-16. The increasing number of WU in PVal status with unsent partners has reduced my stats lately. I had one in PVal status with an unsent replicant since late July!

Hello,

I also run universe@home on a Raspberry Pi 3. It is crunching since June 2016. At the moment the Raspi has granted around 156000 credits and crunched 95 WUs of Universe BH Spin v2.

Before August the average Task turn around was about 30.000 seconds so around 8-10 h per WUs. No it takes him around 60k to 65k seconds per WU. I don't know why. I will make an update and an upgrade today, then we will see. Hope it gets back to the faster turn around.

greetings from austria

In every batch turnaround time is increasing with parameters from input file up to 50-80% usually (and is reduced back in next batch). So execution time is highly based on witch work unit from batch you have.

Hi Krzysztof,

the new WUs are crunched quite faster. they are now around 55k seconds. nearly the same duration as before.

I've got 3 tasks @ around 66% each having crunched around 36 hours. Most other tasks have taken around 15 hours. Do I keep crunching or abort them?

Check if they have "10" number in name, they usually longer on Linux machines, if they haven't cancel them...

They had 10 in the name. They finished after 52 hours. All are waiting for validation, but one has the dreaded "unsent" wingman.

Just checked back and let my little pie crunch in peace and it seems it clocked 255k points already. I am getting two more for christmas so I am hoping to keep adding more and more of the little guys to be exclusively crunching work units.

Does anyone know if any new work units that might come up online would be compatible with Raspberry Pie? Or would only be the BHspin applications?

Work generator is working now for new tasks :)

I had to switch off server daemons today as we had some problems on work station with nfs drive mapped to project server. Now everything is back without any loss.

Just added a new one and it starting to crunch on. I was just about a third one to be devoted to Universe@home, but wouldn't you know the box came with the wrong SD card. Now have to wait for the new one to arrive :( I am hoping to get 5 or these running 24/7.
