Something strange has happened to my PC today. After strange errors from the NVidia driver, I decided to install newest one (and updated BOINC to 7.0.56), but all my CUDA tasks continue to error out with EXIT_TIME_LIMIT_EXCEEDED error, and I see crazy times on my GF9800GT, like 1min (normally tasks are 15-25min).

It's for the first time, and I don't know what to do. Do I need to abort all cuda tasks?

Did you just update BOINC to one of the newer versions?

I had the same happen when I moved from 7.0.28 to 7.0.56 the other day. My solution was to roll back to 7.0.28 and expected durations went back to the "normal" values.

In will repost Claggys answer to me when I had the same problem:

This is because of a change in Boinc 7.0.33, the flops value for GPU tasks gets increased by by times 10 (when no flops values have been supplied in the app_info), existing GPU tasks will be put on the verge of going Maximum time exceeded:

client: when estimating FLOPS for an anonymous-platform app version for which no estimate has been supplied by user, use (CPU speed)*(cpu_usage + 10*gpu_usage) (--> add the 10*)


Fresh GPU tasks will get revised <rsc_fpops_est> and <rsc_fpops_bound> values and will complete O.K, you can eithier reset the project and get your tasks resent,
or use the -177 protection option in BoincRecheduler (but that'll mess up the time estimates)


I reset the project and everything was OK after that.

Thanks, reseting the project. I hope new tasks will be ok.

They should be, it is because you were trying to complete GPU tasks with the new version of BOINC that had been started in a version prior to 7.0.33

Anyone else reading this who hasn't upgraded above BOINC 7.0.33, and who has no flops values supplied in the app_info, set NNT and run down you GPU tasks before upgrading, after which all new GPU task will be OK
