Repost of some old info...

VERSION 2.3.0
1. version 2.3.0 the focus is on preventing IO with GIMPS during peak times. I have defined peak time (in my code) as 2 mins before the hour to 10 mins after the hour (UTC).

During this restricted window anything done via button clicks will get a dialog error indicating cannot perform task during peak time.

For automation it is more complicated.
Schedule exports/uploads can no longer be scheduled during that time frame. Existing schedule will be challenged during start-up and you'd have to reschedule.

Time interval based exports/uploads will auto delay to past the restricted window if the event occurs within the restricted window.. this will cause the timer to drift past the window and future uploads won't fall in the window at all.

GIOM retries (if GIMPS is down) will also auto delay to past the restricted window if the event occurs within the restricted window. So if you have a schedule upload at 3:30 and it fails due to some primenet problem it retries every 30 mins. this puts the next retry right at peak time (4:00). In this case GIOM will delay that retry to after peak time.

In all automation scenarios the delay past peak time is randomized between 0 and 5 minutes. This delay is to prevent the thousands of MISFIT instances from uploading results at the same time after the peak window has passed.

That should be fine, I do that all the time.

Thanks for the info. We are reading the archived thread to try to learn more as well.

We run three instances on one computer, because there are three GPUs. If we named each binary a different name is there a way for MISFIT to give us individual control over starting and stopping them?

Again, thanks for the cool utility. We have not had to mess with it yet so that must be a good sign!

Naming them differently will not provide any individualized functionality. MISFIT stops/starts all instances.

Individual control can be served via a menu-batch file or something or hitting CTRL-C on the windows you want to close and clicking the .EXE or .BAT for starting.

So, stop MISFIT, delete just misfit.exe and put the new binary in place and run it?

The new tooltips are very much appreciated.

We especially like the ones for obvious (even to us) fields!
