If you go to your MW Boincstats page, down the bottom is a table showing, among other things, the actual number of rocks you've got for each of the last 30 days.

Hmmmm, it shows I am steadily increasing the credits I put out every day, but steadily going down in world ranking. Maybe I need to roll as well as rock ;)

Come on kevint, keep up ;)

47) Message boards : Number crunching : Setting is for only GPU tasks, am getting CPU tasks (Message 36872)
Posted 1 Mar 2010 by ProfileGalaxyIce
Post:
Unfortunately, there is an error someplace and I am still, on occasion, getting MW CPU side tasks.

They are the same tasks and can be run on either cpu or gpu.

I know the tasks are the same. But, I am not interested in using my CPU time on MW or Collatz in that I can get far more production on the GPU. So, I have the server side settings set to no CPU tasks... yet I still see them issued against my desires...

And that is the point ...

There is little utility in having a setting that is ignored. Even if the ignoring happens only on occasion.

That occasion could be costly if the unwanted CPU MW/Collatz WUs jump in and stop other WUs from completing on time and result in wasted work with loss of credit. I too would rather have control of what's going on and prefer not to see the random activity that can take place in BOINC manager.

Don't forget that the 3rd.in site not only helps you to navigate through your optimized apps needs here at MilkyWay, but also has links to optimized apps resources at others sites, as well as links to help you navigate around BOINC more generally.

Please try it out, it's free for all to use.

Here to post my little, little first milestone: 10.000 credits in this project ;-)

But I'll grow more...

Greetings!

Congratulations! (to an astra from an astrum ;)

For ATI GPUs maybe you can try to use the Catalyst Control Center to slow things down.

*bump*

I would like to know too, if and how it might be possible to lower the load on the GPU? Im working on my PC and the input lag is very annoying. Thx in advance for any help!

The only way I know is to suspend any projects using GPU. In this case it will also suspend any MW CPU WUs, so I just kick off my usual CPDN 'backup' WUs. (When I come to restart MW I don't have to worry about finishing off any 'backup' WUs and running out of time on them since CPDN WUs have no time limits.)

Many thanks for the tips. Yes cenit I always check the protected mode installation is not set thanks, and yes PoorBoy I tried different driver versions including the driver rollback feature.

The problem was not software but mechanical. Over time the pressure of the main power supply connector against the fan on the GPU, positioned right against each other, had caused the fan to slow down and even stop. Some of fan blades were even partly worn. I had to remove the fan from the GPU and re-position it slightly to stop the abraison occuring.

It's now crunching again on the GPU, thanks again for the help.

I have a 4850 which has been running in a PC for a year now, and boinc manager now tells me there is no usable GPU. The drivers seem to be fine and Catalyst Control Center works as if a GPU is there. I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, CCC and boinc manager 6.10.18 which still says there is no usable GPU. Any ideas?

Are any of you boys offering stock options, a decent pension and/or company car ?

Alternatively I'm open to a decent sized golden handshake :-D

You get to be president, get to live longer and we'll let you hold the golden balls. In fact if you join PBToyz you get to accomplish a certain number of things. Enough that you will be so far behind that you will never die. What other team can offer you that?

Sorry, no stock, pensions or cars; just help and advice in the best forum and a team that Is relatively new and is motoring up the ranks like no other. ;)


join PBToyz


Oh, and you get a chocolate star. Stars don't belong to any one team as they may claim. PBToyz is the only rising star team right now ;)

About to hit a RAC of 200,000. Now accumulating over 6 million credits a month (more if MW gets going).

LOL..It's still a long way to the top for bragging rights.

This project has made a joke out of the stats.


I agree, stats based on the BOINC core client model can be compared, but if you are using an optimized app for a project, then you are apples and oranges. The science is getting done, sure, but to lump those credits in with other projects that do not use an optimised app makes that whole credit issue meaningless.

It's like Conan says, doing my bit for science. It's not about credits, but about doing science in different projects, or just one project. Congrats to all milestoners, and anyone proud of the credit they achieve which reflects their contribution to science ;)


Yes, you are doing your bit for SCIENCE, but you are also doing it for CREDITS. Otherwise you would not have posted your accomplishments here in this thread, and your signiture wouldn't be showing how much you have done.

OK, I get the message. You think the credits are meaningless and I get a kick out of putting them in my signature to celebrate how much I am achieving for science.
