1) Message boards : Application Code Discussion : MilkyWay on ARM Mali T-628 GPU (Message 69043)
Posted 16 Sep 2019 by Dirk Broer
Post:
For some reason BOINC Client sees two instances of Mali GPU, but uses only 1st one.


this might have to do with

<coproc>
<type>Mali-T628</type>
<count>1.0</count>
</coproc>

Try

<coproc>
<type>Mali-T628</type>
<count>2.0</count>
</coproc>

Also, did you have in your cc_config.xml the the option set <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus> with '1'?
Default is '0' which will only use one GPU, if available. Otherwise only the strongest.

<cc_config>
<log_flags>
</log_flags>
<options>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
</options>
<cc_config>
2) Message boards : News : Deprecation of Linux 32bit (Message 63919)

Post:
Well, 64-bit IS the future -for those of us that have the hardware that is capable of running a 64-bit OS.

For those of us who, for nostalgic reasons, try to cling to our old hardware it would be nice when the apps check first for the kernel version and installed libraries, if possible, and then come with a comprehensible advice on how to run the app on that hardware when all is not well.

If and when you have 64-bit hardware that does not run on x86-64 architecture however (e.g. ARM64), you are still left in the cold.

It's been working for months now, ever since the badges came out actually...
stats.free-dc.org:
signature.statseb.fr:
Guess it's working now even better than before?

I take it that 50k should read 50M?

HaHa! We can enter our ancient AGP HD 3850 again!
7) Message boards : Number crunching : New BOINC Manager = no MWAH WUs (Message 54022)
Posted 14 Apr 2012 by Dirk Broer
Post:
I am crunching MilkyWay on a Win8 Dev 64 machine under BOINC 7.0.15, using a Radeon HD 4770. Because I use an app_info.xml, I have no problems downloading and crunching MilkyWay. I had some days of trouble with Moo! on another machine with a Llano APU and a Radeon HD 6670. Boinc 7.0.25 for some reason could not handle that as 6.12.34 had done before (using two GPUs to crunch 1 WU) and sat idle with the WUs until I wrote an app_info.xml for Moo! Only Collatz seems to handle 7.0.25 good.

And I want to inform that there is no link with the various stats servers anymore.

Thanks for the update and keep up the good work!
10) Message boards : Number crunching : Host with WAY too many tasks. (Message 45734)
Posted 24 Jan 2011 by Dirk Broer
Post:
I believe they are all the same system being they all have the exact specs

Could it be one -or more- actual and 153 -or less- virtual machines? All on the same actual host(s)? And clogging up tasks by doing so? just my 2 cents...

Just look at that idiot:
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/hosts_user.php?userid=100412

154 boxes that have been hard-coded to show 10.000 cores, all with 4(!) HD 5800-class GPUs. Having 154 i7-980s and 616 HD 5850s should be enough for everybody (provided they have more than 640k memory)
