Running 1x mb wu on each core of cpu and 1x mb wu on gpu

clicked on properties and dcf is on 1.

Please help i keep getting computation errors on gpu wu's

28/08/2012 7:46:08 PM | SETI@home | Aborting task 14my12ab.21457.20108.13.10.152_1: exceeded elapsed time limit 665.45 (1902.40G/2.86G)

Free at least one core of your CPU.
I will check later again.

Your APR is out of order.

Do you have flops included in your appinfo.xml ?

no flops in my appinfo.xml .

do you know the flops for my card and how to put it in pls

how do i free up one core if i only run three wu it shares it across the four cores still

@Fred

I have calculated something for you.
Please add this line into your appinfo.

<flops>509408724.212160</flops>

Below your command line.

This should increase estimates, reduce your DCF and limit the errors.

Beware its very low value on purpose.



will this be the same for mine ill do this and see how i go

Yes, you can use it also.
Those are very low calculated not to get other errors.

Close Boinc.
Open in notepad or something similar.
Put it after the cmdline.

<plan_class>ati13ati</plan_class>
<cmdline>-period_iterations_num 50 -instances_per_device 2 -no_cpu_lock</cmdline>
<flops>509408724.212160</flops>
<file_ref>

Make sure you save it as txt.
Restart boinc.

Go to tools/computingpreferences in your boinc manager.



On multiprecessors use 75 out of 100 cause you have a quad core CPU.

ok Thanks for that Mike

now after freeing up 1 core do i change the ncpus from

<max_ncpus>0.05</max_ncpus>

thanks

No, no further changes necessary.

Lets see how it goes.

Things are running great now Mike no more ERRORS thanks . after freeing up one cpu core my gpu load dropped and stayed around 50% so now im running two wu on the single gpu but i have been noticing something strange , both wu run great and gpu loads sits around 95%-99% and both wu take about 15 minutes to complete from an estimate of 21 minutes but after the first two or three wu finish and the next one loads on the gpu the load drops and stays around 75%-80% and one unit takes around an hour to an hour and a half while the second wu still takes the 15 min with both wu with the same estimate , but again if i close boince and restart it both units take 15 min again for the first few then the same thing happens even if the wu have already been started and previously sed an hour it then takes 15 min after a restart of boince until the few have run then one wu slows down , do u have any ideas pls

also if i only run one wu on the gpu it still takes 15 min to complete at 55% load

So you are still suffering from low GPU usage bug.

You have to decide to free another core like i have.
On my FX CPU i need to free 2 CPU cores to get full utilisation.
That depends on over all load of the system.

If you can live with it its fine so long you dont get errors again.
If i were you i would try to free another core and see if the full GPU load benefits the second core.

The errors stopped after freeing up 2 cores and also doing 2 MB WUs per GPU.

But the APR is still too high!
