has been sent to SETI for distribution. Hopefully, it will appear on
the download site sometime tomorrow.

You'll be able to find it at:

When it gets there, will I be able to run it *and* RC5 cracking simultaneously?  Or, to put it a different way, how
much of a performance hit will the system take with SETI?  RC5 soaks up all spare cycles and never slows
anything down, very polite program.

The SETI client, which has been released BTW see http://www.os2ss.com/seti/ ,
can be set to run at idle or regular priority. I have not tried to run it
alongside RC5 so I don't know how they will affect each other. However, the
SETI client when run at idle priority is as unnoticeable as the RC5 client on
my machine. (Note that SETI uses much more RAM so <=32 meg machines might see
swapping).

From the "Official Warpcast announcement":




have set up a small web page with instructions on the
Supersite at:

http://www.os2ss.com/seti/

There you will find everything you need to get started. For
now the client is only available on the Supersite, but it

not upload the client to other sites.

It says on the website that the SETI client runs on idle priority,
which is the same as RC5. If you run it with RC5, your performance in
both will be slightly less than half.

Didn't find it there but I found it at http://www.os2ss.com/seti/ as
mentioned in another article.  Works like a dream and is unnoticeable when
idle priority is assigned.  Some timings I did to compare to the Windows
client found that on my computer given that there were no other jobs
running, a single batch would take...

approx 71 hours on Win95
approx 56.5 hours on WinNT
approx 13.75 hours on OS/2

Measured by running for 1 hour and calculating total time from percentage
completed.

Thanks for this... jeeps... so ruddy easy, too!!!  Suck, zip, tap and click
and I'm 'Doing The Doppler Shift'.

My CPU seems pegged, though.. is this normal ? (If it wasn't for noticing the
graph, I would have no knowledge of the program running, btw..)

When can I interrupt the process to play with the -nice parameters (connected
24/7 here).

Cheers..

Clive (aka et for the purpose of this larky)

First of all, for anyone just coming into this thread, the OS/2 client
is not yet at the SETI site. You an find it at:

http://www.os2ss.com/seti

The client uses all unused CPU cycles, so it always runs the processor
at 100%. This is normal.

You can use <CTRL><C> at anytime to stop the client. It remembers
where it left off, and will pick up again when you restart the client.

SETI@home for OS/2

Post by Lyn St Geor » Mon, 07 Jun 1999 04:00:00


Does anybody know if the time per work unit recorded is the actual
time, or the time between sending and receiving the units at berkeley?
The reason I ask, is that I'm dialling up manually to send and receive
them, about once per day. The reason for not implementing DOD is that
here in the UK (and the rest of Europe) we pay through the nose for
every minute on a local call. I'd really hate to connect and then
fail_to_disconnect for a few hours at 4.2p (ca. 6.7 US cents) per
minute prime rate :(

It works beautifully though - no discernible impact on the system at
all, even using 13 mb of ram for seti and with about 100 processes
running in total.
