Yea, it looks like pretty much everything is jammed up now.

But look on the bright side, the boards still work.


Yes, At least we can gripe about it! :)

I had noticed on the 6th that one of my machines credit was remaining flat. I didn't give it to much thought until the 7th when it was still flat. Then I looked at the stats for several other machines. They were either flat or much lower than average compared to their "normal". However a few machines are doing just fine.

Perhaps there is an issue with the validators, much like the AP validator issue that was (or maybe still is) going on, that is causing a hang up on the server side. Causing some tasks to not get processed as quickly as they would be. However, With the count for "Workunits waiting for validation" rather low this doesn't seems like it is the issue.

I have no GPU work and very little CPU work left.

I haven't dowloaded anything since 06:50 GMT.

No tasks available?

Server status page has not updated since 4:20 GMT and cricket graph is showing downloads have dropped.

So it looks as if there is no work being sent out.

If you have run out of GPU work so fast check and if need be increase your cache settings to a higher amount. (advanced view - advanced - preferences - network usage - additional work buffer, increase to between 5 and 10 days).

There are server side limits in place so you will not get flooded with work, your machine will only be allowed a maximum of 800 WU's 50 per CPU core and 400 for each GPU card.

This will not help this time but if next time your cache is higher you wont run out so easily when they have a minor problem.

I have it set for 10 days,but I have just recently changed
the card from a 230 to a 460, and it's still in it's
settling in period.(I hope?)
Sometimes I get nothing for ages then I get 20 or 30.


Since I changed the card I have never built up a large cache.
I rarely get more than 1 page of WUs (41).

Thanks,but I think I will have to just be patient for the next
couple of weeks.

p.s. I did dump all my cuda WUs when my new card was erroring
all of them,and I realized that I needed FERMI WU's.
possibly that has something to do with it?

It could be the change in cards that is causing this, I see that you are running x41g, you may now need flops in your app_info.xml file.

Are you seeing large alterations in "to completion" times ie: when a CPU task finishes GPU to completion times jump from 20 min to 1+ hrs? if so flops may be a good idea.

I am probably not the ideal person to advise on how to set up flops.

Something's gone down in sympathy with the GTX 460 in my home machine. Its fans have stopped working, at just under 9 months old. It's fine as long as I don't try to crunch seti, then, as you say,*poof!* Tomorrow I get to test eBuyer's returns policy (tho' they were very good a couple of years ago when a stick of laptop RAM was DoA).

[Edit] 15:45 -- looks like someone's kicked something...

I've gotten 1 whole VLAR onboard my main machine. I've resorted to backup projects to keep the CPU busy. unfortunately the Milkyway has now work right now so my GPU is idle

I am just getting back into computers after 20 years off,
and I don't even know where to look for my app info files.
If you could PM me with some advice and keep my ignorance
away from the message boards it would be appreciated.

thanks

I won't post on this probem in this thread again.
I have already gone off topic in the science threads
and realised my mistake (when it was pointed out).
