25th of October

Farm status

Running Rosetta overnight only.

Intel GPUs

Nvidia GPUs
Two running GPUgrid and Milkyway overnight

Raspberry Pis
Three running Rosetta and Einstein. Ten running Einstein.

Other news
Its been warm so the farm is running work overnight when its cool enough.

When starting up 24 Rosetta tasks that there is quite a delay before they get going. I believe this is an I/O bottleneck because if I stagger the start up there isn't any delay. I have been looking at the Sabrent Rocket 4 NVMe SSD to replace the existing gen 3 SSD's in them.

I am looking at getting Ryzen 5900X to replace the 3900X CPU's when they become available on the 5th of November. I'm not sure if I will be able to get two of them as I expect they'll be very hard to come by straight after launch. I should be able to swap out the CPU and keep everything else in the machines as is.
