Should I abort this or just wait and see what happens? It's run for 4.5 hours.

Hmmm...mine was a de_13_3s_free_5_22297_1268428455 and it ran on a stock 4870, i7-920, 3 GPU, Win x64 system...I did have 1 that ran 380sec/417cr, but that was a de_13_3s_const_1_22237_1268428453...

But what if the WUs were crunched and are now in a pending state like http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/workunit.php?wuid=71921181? They can't be cancelled by me...

>I will crunch Collatz until my cache runs out, then return to MW.
My Collatz cache ran out yesterday, but can't crunch MW on that GPU as its only a 5870 and doesn't qualify.

Hell I cannot even get MW to crunch on my machines now...
6.10.18 and cat 9.1... I have put the .20 app in as usual and it keeps saying there is not Nvidia device found (no shit it is ATI's)
Twin 4850's.

Try cat 9.11 and 20.B ATI...I have it running on a 4890, XP32, 6.10.18...and no VPU resets yet!!

Problem is, that's not working. This is the first time I've been back to MW since swapping cards around and I have an HD4890 and an HD4350 in this system and BOTH picked up MW work! Oddly, both WUs are progressing at about the same speed, which is definitely not right. Both say they completed successfully, 5m 12 seconds exactly for both.

What's the crunch time now on a WU for an HD4890, ballpark?

12/3/2009 7:07:35 PM ATI GPU 0: ATI Radeon HD 4700/4800 (RV740/RV770) (CAL version 1.4.467, 1024MB, 1536 GFLOPS peak)
12/3/2009 7:07:35 PM ATI GPU 1: ATI Radeon HD 4350/4550 (R710) (CAL version 1.4.467, 512MB, 112 GFLOPS peak)

Ahhh, I see what it's doing. It's automagically running both WUs on the HD4890. Shouldn't it just be making one wait instead of running both simultaneously? Especially since the client says it's running on ATI device 0 and ATI device 1, but in reality it's not:

http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/result.php?resultid=7468346 "running" on the 4350
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/result.php?resultid=7468276 running on the 4890


Edit: FWIW, adding x1 to the command line did nothing. It's still running 2 WUs at a time, 1 per GPU, even though 1 of the GPUs doesn't support it and is shunting the work to the other GPU.


My 4890 is running them in about 160s...1 WU at a time...http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/show_host_detail.php?hostid=40768

But that machine was running just fine before the switch to 9.9...guess I will have to roll back to 8.12 and install 9.9 when MW goes down...or I just won't do MW on that machine anymore...

I have also been noticing a similar problem...maybe it is related to the fact that I upgraded to ATI9.9 for Collatz, but my 3x4870 host will 'hang' MW work units, sometimes for hours...I thought it might be related to memory, so I dropped to running 1 MW at a time, but still had the problem...

I am running 6.10.3 with 8 POEM on the CPU and have gone back to Collatz, as I don't have time to investigate right now...

My single card setups will run fine for the most part, but will hang MW once and a while, until the current WU finishes, then starts the hung WU, and the next one will hang...really weird...

Server down again. Soon i will take my 5 ATI 4870 to FAH.


Beserk_Tux

What OS are you running (32 or 64 bit), BOINC version (I run 6.4.7) and ATI Catalyst version. Your RAC for 5 HD4870s seems very good.


An unmolested 4870 (no other projects) should do ~90k a day...90k * 5 cards = 450k a day...plus he has CPU action going on...

Well done on the prompt recovery, as a DBA I know the feeling when a database goes belly up.

I was fearing for the worst, but luckily labstaff was on top of their game today :)



Throw the labstaff a few extra kibble in the bowl this evening...

Great recovery...

According to GPU-Z, I am running 8.12 on that machine...
