This session was submitted with a RAM setting set to 128MB, it turned out that it requires around 1.5GB instead. Please be careful to select the correct settings when submitting sessions - in this case it delayed the start of the rendering by a day or so.

Wow, sweet... something to actually use that 4Gb for. Actually it\'s probably going to be pretty close to my limit with 2 cores running it.

Being able to send work from multiple sessions was a BOINC issue, right?

Being able to send work from multiple sessions was a BOINC issue, right?

For this session we are testing a different way of interleaving sessions. If 762 was simply given to BOINC as it is it would swamp the scheduler with high-RAM-requirement WUs and people with less than 1.5GB RAM couldn\'t work on 726. Instead the BURP part of the scheduler was changed to simulate the way it will work in v3, which should allow both highmem and lowmem sessions to run concurrently. Unfortunately BOINC does not yet provide a way to always assign highmem sessions to highmem machines and vice versa, so highmem machines may be running the lowmem sessions too... this will change, though.

The first many frames seem to be pure black because the only light inside the room is a \"sun\" light, which is being blocked by the box that the room is constructed from.

Maybe I am missing something but why are the last three work units not being sent out?
