Ok,

i looks like i got some GPU WUs. The Problem now is, that i have removed my 5870 with a HD7970 for other tests.

The GPU-WUs now don´t start and i get the following message from the Client:

Hi,

i want to restart BOINC for some benchmarks of my 7970 vs 5870.

I have installed BOINC 7.0.23 because the 6.x.xx don´t work with my win7_64.

But i still have the problem, that the 5870 don´t geht work from any project...

The CPU get WUs from Primegrid, but also no GPU WUs.

Driver is the 12.3 Version.

I would be very happy about your help.

There is 1 WU available, let´s look who get it ;)

Perhaps the server works now

Hi, after a while I allow MW again to use the CPU and not only the GPU.

Now I see, that I have total 6 aktiv WU´s at the same time, and that on a Dualcore oO 1 MW (GPU) + 4 MW (0,05) CPU + 1 Einstein WU.

I don´t think that this is normal. Perhaps somebody have a idea.

Perhaps broken WU´s? I hope not.

But also i have the problem, that when i want to open a site here on the MW website, the fitst try allways give a responce:

The project's database server is down. Please check back in a few hours.


When i try it then again the site opens normal.

If MW takes 1:40 and you have it limited to GPU crunching and a quad core, you can get 6 * 4 WUs @ 1.40 = ~40 minutes of work. So, set your additional network resources to only allow 0.03 days cache and it won't fill several days cache of Collatz when MW is down. Since BOINC processes GPU results in first in, first out order, it will only have to process about 7 Collatz WUs before it switches back to MW when MW comes back online.

At least, in theory, that is how BOINC should work. ;-)


I only have a E8400, but @3.8 GHz ;), so i just can have work for 20 min. That´s not enough. I always wont a bit more work in the cache, so if it give some problems, i have something to do. And also i want to crunch most of the time for MW. Your proposal don´t fix this problem. I would be very happy if i can cache 100 WU´s+. With a 5870 it´s no problem to solve them in time.

"90% off my GPU time should be used for MW, so i often just stop Collatz to fetch new work (YES i know not the best way ;) ). So i waste yesterday about 2 hours of GPUtime. Idle sucks :/"

skysnake, please excuse the out of place post: maybe I misunderstand, but how are you setting 90% gpu for mw having collatz as another share? I have had no success running collatz with mw in that collatz takes over no matter how I set the sharing. I read that it might be a boinc problem, but whatever it is collatz dictates on my machine if running. that is not happening to you?


thanks.


NP ;)

The problem is very simpel. A MW WU takes about 1:40 and a Collatz WU about 5:40
MW allows 12 WU´s max. Collatz about 20 or more. So i spend allways more time for collatz, because if a WU is uploaded, a new WU is downloaded. Perhaps just chance the preferences should help, but i haven´t try it yet.

Here we go again with an outage of indefinite length with an information outage as well. And the load shift over to Collatz has the same effect...


Collatz seems slow but finished work is getting Uploaded and new work Downloaded on my Box's, very slowly though ...


Yes, Collatz hp is down nearly, but you get work and can send work. So the important thinks work ;) I have 20 WU´s like allways.

But i also think, that there should be a news with updates on the mainpage!

90% off my GPU time should be used for MW, so i often just stop Collatz to fetch new work (YES i know not the best way ;) ). So i waste yesterday about 2 hours of GPUtime. Idle sucks :/

EDIT: Ok Collatz is down atm ;( no report or new work ;(

Hi,

banditwolf send me to this topic with my problem. Here the last reply.

Ok i have also a strange problem with the WU´s.



Should we stop crunching for the moment? Or is it just a problem with the % information?

It seems most wu's are fine but a few have errored. It is being discussed here: http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/forum_thread.php?id=1600. If you are using the optimised app a new one was put out that fixes the % problem. The link is in the same topic.


For information, i don´t use any optimiced apps. Always just the offizial apps! Also i have not the problem with all WU`s. Just with a few. I hope this will help you to find the problem.

Hi,

since 17.43 o´clock today MW doesnn´t requesting new work for my 5870.

I haven´t a idear why.

I also run Collatz Conjecture, so if MW have no work or problems, the GPU can do something.

Normaly i set CC on "no new work".

Somebody a idear, how i can fix the problem?
