296 Milkyway@Home 05-05-2016 12:59 Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks


but as you can see I do NOT receive work units to crunch, sometimes if I disable the R7 I start receiving work and after receiving it I enable again the R7 (called by BOINC "Spectre") and are properly crunched by both GPU ??????

something similar happened with Bitcoin Utopia and needed some work in the server and now I'm receiving properly the work, since the beginning from Collatz there has not been any problem and I have received straight forward work.

in the project setting I have enabled GPUs NVidia/AMD(ATI) and disabled CPU apps.

any clue about??

because I can not been switching off/on from time to time the R7 for receiving work.

Try this thread:
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/forum_thread.php?id=3926

The problem is the current Server Software doesn't correctly recognize your card, there is a work around in there. The Admins are working on fixing the problem more permanently, but no time frames yet.

followed instructions in above thread and made a app_info.xml in directory:

D:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\milkyway.cs.rpi.edu_milkyway

with the info related in the thread.

also I have another file in the same directory named app_config.xml with the next content:

<app_config>
<app>
<name>milkyway</name>
<max_concurrent>4</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>.50</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.10</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
<app>
<name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit</name>
<max_concurrent>8</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>.25</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.10</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

I´ve stopped all other projects and require work for milkyway but still not receiving job also updated in project preferences for this computer to be able to process with ATI/AMD GPU.

my brain is drained of ideas to get GPU work in this computer.

Ok, gone deep through the BOINC manager error and found in the below thread for the app_info.xml that instead of 1.20 is 1.02 in the first app declaration so now for the time being receiving well workunits but only problem I see is that is declared as anonymous I´ll have to be aware when the executables will upgrade to exchange these in the app_info.xml

thanks!!

No problem, I'm glad it's working for you! And yes it does require more maintenance then the usual attach and crunch.
