Default Any feature request for 2016?

Hi,

It's been many months since the last MISFIT release and I guess that is a good thing, but I have some free time and if anyone has any feature requests let me know and I'll see what's doable.



Thanks

Scott

some real documentation on setup and features, not just a disjointed sequence of screen grabs?

A hook into the mersenne.org manual GPU assignment page to get assignments which actually match the range used in the work-fetch work calculator rather than ones just randomly handed out.

Indeed. I must thank you again for an excellent piece of software! It has made GPU TF'ing _much_ more convenient and efficient for many GPUTF'ers here!

Well done!

MISFIT calls special pages to get assignments so George would have to enhance GIMPS first. This is not something that I would put a priority on unless many others want the same. . So... Maybe....

I just started using misfit and really like it.

Does it have a limit of the number of GPU it can support?
Over the next couple of weeks I will be trying to use misfit with 16 GPU.

thank you for a helpful utility!

for your consideration, these would help me:

- configuration, work fetch, "fetch when misfitworktodo drops below" ::: -- I can't go below 100 and would like to please.

- configuration, work mgmt, balance value ::: always resets to 5 after exit/restart -- I want lower to stick please;

- clarify ::: work mgmt drain-when, and amount value seem to refer to the sum of all GPUs for trigger? -- not any one gpu getting too low and needing a refill?

- option for network retry configurable resembling Prime95's "minutes between retires" # instead of the fixed "about 30 minutes" dialog.

Respectfully,
Denny.

No limit. It has been proven with 32 instances spanning several GPUS and PCs.

Excellent list. I will address all of them in upcoming release.

as for work mgmt drain: it is the sum of all and with auto-work balancing that makes total sense since no one gpu should run out of work before another.
