1) Message boards : News : Bad Runs Over the Weekend (Message 66658)
Posted 26 days ago by Profile Saenger
I aborted all with 18 or 20 in the name, and without a fixed somewhere. All others run fine. Some seem to be resend until 5 are done, but they don't last long.

Hey

Add me pls to the List, same Errors here, over 90%. Same Batch of WUs
"de_modfit_fast_18_3s_146_bundle5_ModfitConstraintsWithDisk_Bouncy"

LG Sandra

Wrong;)
I've got some 20 in my list of errors as well, and some are called Random, some not. Looks a wee bit random to me ;)

P.S.: I just saw, you changed your post, so now it fits here as well ;)

The WU has this as stderr:

Something's fishy, but they only take a second, so not much is lost in terms of crunch time ;)

N-Body does not use the GPU at this time, as the GPU code is still in development.

Jake


Then why do you send them out, and block the GPU from doing real work?

Please look in this thread in numbers as well, these WUs should probably not be sent to GPUs, as they just obviously waste their power.

I just looked those nvidia-nbodys up in my WU-list, and saw that they get extremely poor credits for a GPU-WU. Here's an example with paallel CPU-results (290919767):
374569179 256454 4 Jan 2013 | 5:35:27 UTC 4 Jan 2013 | 5:50:05 UTC Fertig und Bestätigt 198.13 195.52 1.31 MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation v1.04 374579051 449717 4 Jan 2013 | 5:55:27 UTC 4 Jan 2013 | 10:04:38 UTC Fertig und Bestätigt 197.60 197.60 1.31 MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation v1.04 (opencl_nvidia) 374676981 456675 4 Jan 2013 | 10:07:22 UTC 4 Jan 2013 | 10:16:00 UTC Fehler beim Berechnen 0.00 0.00 --- MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation v1.04 374684677 475680 4 Jan 2013 | 10:19:42 UTC 4 Jan 2013 | 10:53:07 UTC Fertig und Bestätigt 189.65 187.81 1.31 MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation v1.04


They all took about the same amount of time on the CPU and on the clock, but mine probably used the GPU as well, 'though I can't say, as it crunched while I was away from the machine.

There are two possibilities:

    -> They really don't use the GPU, then they should never be sent as GPU-WUs
    -> They use the GPU, but are so poorly programmed, that they can't make any real use of it, which should not happen as well
    -> They use the GPU for crunching, and really do work on the GPU, so they should be awarded much more credits compared with CPU-only.



If all results of one WU should do the same work, the GPU-ones are a waste of ressources.

Slightly different here on Linux, but with same result:

Odd enough, in-between the 22 errors is one good one:

Is the thread in the polish forum the only support thread? Because most people will very probably have problems to register there...

Anyway, in hope it can be answered here, I copy here a question from the SETI forums:

When i open it, I have to configure it to a new host, and I have no clue as to how to do that. I was wondering if anyone here knows what to do?

It is asking for Host Nickname, Address and password, using port #31416


That's what BOINC always asks if you want to attach a new host to a new project.
If you chose "Existing Account" instead of "New Account" you just have to give your email and password.
If you use BAM! (or any other account manager), you can attach projects to your android there as well.

I have just finished my first 2 WUs on my Galaxy S2, not that bad for a mobile methinks.
