I have re-installed the cpu version of the opt. app. and can confirm that these same units work as expected under the CPU and as I will be unable to micro manage throughout the night, will run the units this way until tomorrow when I will try again, hopefully it may be sorted by then.

I can confirm that "3s" cause errors on my machine too. They are hanging without any output. Restarting BOINC causes "computation error". "2s" and "1s" are crunched as ever.

All WUs of the ....3s.... lot got errors on my GPU (HD4870). If I cancel them, the .....2s.... will not be calculated til I restart the whole PC, a restart of BOINC isn't enough. What is changed?

Sorry guys!

I just have seen this mess and but it is already midnight here. So I can't do much about it before tomorrow.
What has changed with the ps_208_s3 WUs compared to all earlier ones is that these WUs do computations on three streams (opposed to only one ore two in all previous WUs). The GPU app was supposed to handle that (Travis told me that probably three streams will coming already in february or so), but as there were no appropriate WUs it was never tested. Obviously there is a bug in the GPU app (as the CPU app is working). So I need to find the bug, fix it and distribute a new version of the GPU application.

I hope it will be ready tomorrow.

If you abort the 3s, and the 2s or 1s don't start up, rather than restart your computer:

Close BOINC
Open Task Manager
End all Astronomy sse2 processes
Reopen BOINC

The WUs start crunching again

The plural of CPU is CPUs
The plural of GPU is GPUs

<offtopic> Meh I was fed up with people and businesses putting apostrophes in CPUs, GPUs, CDs, TVs, DVDs and PCs, so decided to make a facebook fan page about Spelling, Punctuation and Apostophe Use. Not too bad getting 10k fans in a month - I'm not the only soldier in the crusade against bad English. Not bad for a computational chemist who actually dropped out of English A-Level during Wuthering Heights.

Also, science rocks my socks.

This would entail (used this word before) micro management. If it wasn't almost midnight here I would do that, it's going to affect a lot of people over the next few hours.
Solution, temp. revert to the cpu app till CP sorts the problem!

I have 6 208_3s_2's now which seem to be running ok so far with ~15-30% increase in crunch time.
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.

Hello

Are 3s WUs a test (either voluntary or involuntary) to encourage GPU ATI cruncheurs to wait for milky_GPU applications?

I switched yesterday to ubuntu where the CPU optimized application runs well without errors.

Having just got home from work [GMT+10] and then spent 15mins aborting stalled 3s WUs [on 3 PCs] and then restarting boinc to get things going again, might I suggest that until the 3s problem is sorted the project stop serving up 3s WUs. Of course if the project can detect which PCs are or are not running Cluster's GPU client [individual PC racs could be a hint] then problem solved - just send 3s WUs to CPU-only PCs and 1 and 2s to the GPUs.

Someone may be ahead of me here - the last couple of batches of WUs that I got contained only 1s and 2s WUs.
Cheers,

PeterV

Yea - stop sending "3s" WU for about 2 days - Gipsel is working on it !

I got 48new WUs at once - all "3s" - 60s later - all crashed ...

The Milkyway-Project-Team is waisting WUs ... !
