I'm noticing that primegrid_cllr.exe is having a lot of hard faults in my memory according to recource monitor > Memory. It spiked at over 100 and near when it does that it stays up around 20-60 range for a minute or so before returning to normal for another while.. Is this normal?

If you are talking about page faults, a hard fault occurs when memory is overcommitted and a page needs to be read in from the swap file. This happens when you're running too much stuff for the amount of memory in your computer. It will still function, but it will be MUCH slower than it would otherwise be.

Hmm. Is this something i can fix with cc_config? allocate more RAM to llr? Because on my system i have 24 gigabytes of total RAM, with these days only around 4gb in use. it also says 41mb hardware reserved, 120mb modified, ~20gb standby and 0mb free.. It's not doing the spiking right now, but when i saw it earlier PPSE was running.

To me the last number is the troublesome one, "0mb free" means every little bitty chunk of memory is allocated by Windows. I am on a laptop NOT crunching PG, but AM crunching 8 cpu units at once. I only have 8gb of ram and am seeing 140mb hardware reserved, 2720mb in use, 45mb modified, 5263mb standby and 25mb free. Are you totally letting Windows and Boinc manage it or are you using other memory managers too?

Just windows and boinc... no memory managers or anything. ive got 3 instances of gcwsieve, 1 instance of gfn sieve, and boinc running 1 core.

So you are running 5 units at once and only have 4 cpu cores? Are you leaving a core free for the gpu to use? If not change the setting locally and see if that helps, you have an Nvidia gpu and they pretty much require most of a cpu core just to keep the gpu running at max output. An easy way to tell is to open the Boinc Manager, down by the clock, and click on the tasks tab, one of them should say "Running (0.xxx cpu's + 1 Nvidia gpu)". The Nvidia cards will normally use more of the cpu when crunching then an AMD gpu will, as in 0.717 for an AMD and 0.943 for an Nvidia on the same project for some of my gpu's.

An easy way to tell is to open the Boinc Manager, down by the clock, and click on the tasks tab, one of them should say "Running (0.xxx cpu's + 1 Nvidia gpu)". The Nvidia cards will normally use more of the cpu when crunching then an AMD gpu will, as in 0.717 for an AMD and 0.943 for an Nvidia on the same project for some of my gpu's.

Don't worry, the GPU is slow. and the gpu isnt running on BOINC.. it varies from 97 to 99% cpu utilization with all of these running :). It only gets ~703/s in gfn sv n=22. It only uses 1% cpu, a few times per minute iirc. so that shouldnt be the problem.

I'm noticing that primegrid_cllr.exe is having a lot of hard faults in my memory according to recource monitor > Memory. It spiked at over 100 and near when it does that it stays up around 20-60 range for a minute or so before returning to normal for another while.. Is this normal?


If you are talking about page faults, a hard fault occurs when memory is overcommitted and a page needs to be read in from the swap file. This happens when you're running too much stuff for the amount of memory in your computer. It will still function, but it will be MUCH slower than it would otherwise be.

Hmm. Is this something i can fix with cc_config? allocate more RAM to llr? Because on my system i have 24 gigabytes of total RAM, with these days only around 4gb in use. it also says 41mb hardware reserved, 120mb modified, ~20gb standby and 0mb free.. It's not doing the spiking right now, but when i saw it earlier PPSE was running.


To me the last number is the troublesome one, "0mb free" means every little bitty chunk of memory is allocated by Windows. I am on a laptop NOT crunching PG, but AM crunching 8 cpu units at once. I only have 8gb of ram and am seeing 140mb hardware reserved, 2720mb in use, 45mb modified, 5263mb standby and 25mb free. Are you totally letting Windows and Boinc manage it or are you using other memory managers too?


Just windows and boinc... no memory managers or anything. ive got 3 instances of gcwsieve, 1 instance of gfn sieve, and boinc running 1 core.


So you are running 5 units at once and only have 4 cpu cores? Are you leaving a core free for the gpu to use? If not change the setting locally and see if that helps, you have an Nvidia gpu and they pretty much require most of a cpu core just to keep the gpu running at max output. An easy way to tell is to open the Boinc Manager, down by the clock, and click on the tasks tab, one of them should say "Running (0.xxx cpu's + 1 Nvidia gpu)". The Nvidia cards will normally use more of the cpu when crunching then an AMD gpu will, as in 0.717 for an AMD and 0.943 for an Nvidia on the same project for some of my gpu's.


Don't worry, the GPU is slow. and the gpu isnt running on BOINC.. it varies from 97 to 99% cpu utilization with all of these running :). It only gets ~703/s in gfn sv n=22. It only uses 1% cpu, a few times per minute iirc. so that shouldnt be the problem.


Okay then I am out of ideas, sorry!

having hard faults is not any thing to worry about unless its thousands.
