Message 851316 - Posted: 9 Jan 2009, 16:28:28 UTC

Running winxp sp3 with intel dual core.

Cuda devices seen but no cuda WU's
(I have a 280 on a vista 64 box that is crunching like hell (no AP's) so seti pref's are ok)

Installed Raistners and cuda WU's seen and then processed for 27 sec CPU time and then, as soon as completion reached 1% work stopped and WU was submitted for .01 credit.

Reinstalled boinc - default installation. same problem.

Upgraded graphics driver to 6.14.11.8120 with all the newest files... no cuda wu's seen.

Installed Raistners - again I got the cuda WU's but CPU time stops at 27 sec with time to completion increasing. The WU has been running for about 3 hrs with 27 sec CPU time and over 11 hours remaining.

Sure could use some advice.

Thanks,

a link to your failed results would be nice
Edit: If a WU goes stuck and and restart of BM doesnt seem to help, abort the file manual and restart BM again ... maybe its one of those mysterios WU's which wont be crunched by cuda ;)

How do I do this - I am still running that one WU - and it is the only one tried since my BOINC reinstallation.

Thanks for the prompt response and I will be monitoring this forum.

Try restart of BM (and choose: quit sience apps too)
Edit: check Windows Task Manager, if BM is off, no sience-tasks should be reported there

I restarted BOINC before your last post and - after bad graphics lag - a good sign? it seems to be working.

Oh well - it was as CPU usage was slowing incrfementing and progress got to .219% - then all seemed to stop. Time remaining is going up.

How do I restart science apps. I have just exited BOINC and then restarted.

Going to do so again.

A good sign, yes, if u have no WU's that get complete in 30sec or below.
If it is so you need to reboot your PC.

If you quit BM (the icon -> lower right corner where the time is shown, right click->quit) the BM should normaly ask you what to do.

Ok - rebooted computer and that one WU went back to a lower percentage of completion - it ran fine until it got back to .219% completion that seemed to stop .. time to completion increased - so i restarted BOINC and it happened again it halts all at :40 CPU time and .219% completion

How do I link to the failed WU?

I have gone thru several now and the last 2 were finished with 0% done.

Beats me - but until I get this resp;ved I have suspended Seti as I don't want to submit invalid data

After they are uploaded and reported (away from your Task list in BM) go to your Account, scroll bit down -> Tasks. There you should find them.

Edit: found your Host and Task-list. Heavy ... :(
But you wasnt using the most current version of Raisterms MB

After you detached now, give 'em a new chance with stock app.
Lets see if the errors are still there.

ok - stock app did not download cuda wu's

downloaded and installed raistmer's V2 and applied it . WU's ran for 27 sec and then finished.

But it gets down to this: Why won't seti download a cuda WU?

Don't know.
Could you provide a copy of the start up messages from BM and from the stock-app scheduling messages ?

looks all normal. btw. if the server is telling you he has no jobs, then he have no jobs ^^
give 'em a bit time to generate results ... sometimes the server is disabled by the staff, thats the second option why you dont get tasks
click me
thats a startup with opt.-app, isnt it?

If opt apt is raismer it is.
No new tasks because I have stopped new ones because it is running them 27 seconds and then submitting as finishes.
I just allowed new tasks, got threee and it blew the first, so I suspended the other two

And what is the BM messaging if you use the stock app ?

Edit: i did a look at this task. you are using Raistmer's built, but an older one. the lastest one should provide gfx memory informations (total mem, free mem) like this

Rise priority modification by Raistmer based on rev380 of SETI@home sources
Priority of worker thread rised successfully
