New host ID, oldest Wu was sent 6 Nov 2009 8:18:54 UTC

All tasks for computer 5337951

Claggy



Hmm, and why did it get a new host ID? Would adding hardware automatically create a new host ID, but keep the totals?

Interesting, so that means the driver is now reporting less memory available (or its using more).

My system is still reporting the proper amount of memory after upgrading the driver:

NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce 9500 GT (driver version 19713, CUDA version 3000, compute capability 1.1, 1024MB, 90 GFLOPS peak)

I suspect something other than the driver is taking up more memory on your card.

Found another CUDA-blower, this time bloating the database by 13,331: host 5337951. This is beginning to get a bit worrying.

Yes, with advance of GPU computing current quota-based protection system is completely obsolete.
It can't effectively block damaged host even if it does CPU+ single GPU computations, but if it has few GPUs... no way to stop database polluting at all now.

I've posted to Nvidia's Forum asking what has changed in the 197.xx drivers to cause Boinc and CUDA-Z to report less memory, No replies yet, feel free to add comments there:

Cuda-Z and Boinc report less Memory with 197.xx drivers

On my laptop, the reduction of reported memory caused Collatz to no longer send Cuda tasks, needed 126Mb, had 113Mb, reverted to an app_info for now,
on the Desktop PC, (with 2 OS's) the reduction in reported memory caused downloaded Stock Seti Beta 6.09 tasks to not start because of lack of memory, needed something like 384Mb, had 382Mb.

I had this same problem when switching to the 197.13 driver. It didnt really matter for the MSI 9500 GT 512MB card but for my BFG 8600 GT 256MB card i couldnt get any new astropulse tasks, at the time thats all that was sending out, as it reported my memory at 243MB so i went back to the older driver 196.21. Same with the 197.25 driver.

Claggy please fill us in if you get any reply.

NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT (499MB) driver: 19713
NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT (256MB) driver: 19621

Windows 7 x64 an both machines, BOINC 6.10.43 on both as well.

Im also wondering if i should switch back to 196.21 on the 9500GT. Could this failure in reporting total ram affect performance of the card? Thanks for any information.

I may get more life out of that 9600 GT yet!!

Seriously.. it is either time to buy new fans for it, or retire it for something faster. But I am a multi-tasker.
