Posted 7 May 2011 by ivk
all of my WUs are being aborted, prematurely, with the following diagnostics:

obviously the "elapsed time limit2 is being computed incorrectly by the server.
2) Message boards : News : fix to the invalid workunit problem (Message 48544)

All of my workunits running on the GPU are currently being aborted - automatically, with diagnostics similar to the following:

07/05/2011 16:07:31 Milkyway@home Starting de_separation_10_3s_fix20_1_142549_1304780731_0

07/05/2011 16:09:10 Milkyway@home Computation for task de_separation_10_3s_fix20_1_142549_1304780731_0 finished

I guess this is another screw-up?

As you can see, the unit was aborted after about a minute of the astronomic time, due to "exceeded elapsed time limit". Evidently the "elapsed time limit" is being set wrongly.
3) Message boards : Number crunching : ATI application 0.62 produces errors? (Message 48033)

Thanks, the new Catalyst package appears to have solved the problem.

I believe this happened because the 0.62 application is using a newer version of the graphic library - without reporting it to the user.

I found that I have zero milkiway credits for 2 weeks.
Both my computers are on default configuration - which has worked before - and consistently producing errors like this:

Função incorrecta. (0x1) - exit code 1 (0x1)
<search_application> milkywayathome_client separation 0.62 Windows x86 double CAL++ </search_application>
Failed to get CAL device attributes: Parameter passed in is invalid (CAL_RESULT_INVALID_PARAMETER)
Error getting device information: Parameter passed in is invalid (CAL_RESULT_INVALID_PARAMETER)
Failed to get CAL info: Parameter passed in is invalid (CAL_RESULT_INVALID_PARAMETER)
Failed to setup CAL
09:49:43 (6516): called boinc_finish


Any clues?

5) Message boards : News : stock ATI 58x0 apps updated (Message 38294)
Posted 7 Apr 2010 by ivk
Good day,

The new stock application v. 0.23 for ATI GPU has downloaded automatically and is running on my GPU, with several dozens of WU's already finished. Some of those have been validated OK, but some were either considered invalid, or the validation is reported "inconclusive". Thus I guess the problem is still there.

Not overclocking.

Cheers, ivk
