Message 1453441 - Posted: 13 Dec 2013, 2:45:00 UTC

I noticed recently that my work done on average has decreased by a lot. Watching my tasks I've come to the conclusion that for some reason my GPU is not being used for astropulse anymore. Instead of using 4 cores + GPU, its using 3 cores for regular work units and 1 core for astropulse. GPU is sitting idle. Nothing has changed to the best of my knowledge. Could somebody help me please?

I just remembered that when the last update for Battlefield 3 came out I updated my ATI drivers. I have an HD6870. Is it possible that the newer catalyst was incompatible with boinc? Boinc just recently updated as well so I'm not sure which it could be.

Dexter please copy/paste the first 30 lines or so of your BOINC event log. That will give us an idea of what is going on

And sorry- I wasn't sure what info you really needed so I just posted the whole event log. I figured it would be terribly long since I just recently updated Boinc. If you spot the problem please let me know.

AstroPulse is less common than MultiBeam, and some of the AP work is known to be unsuitable for GPUs, and so is not sent to GPUs. For some reason there is a class of AP work that takes longer on most GPUs than it does on a CPU...

Take a look at No AP opencl_ati_100 since 26 Nov over in Number Crunching. Apparently there was a scheduler glitch that has blocked ATI GPUs from getting AP tasks since late last month. It appears that they've now fixed it, but we won't know for sure until they have some more AP tasks ready to send out, probably early next week.

It used to run 4 threads of regular work. And then the last one would say 0.1 CPU + 1 ATI GPU.

It doesn't do that anymore, and it sucks because my GPU seemed to be the one that was doing most of the work since it's a 5GHZ gpu. :\

Okay so it seems this may actually be the fault of AMD. After reading that thread you linked it seems as though the ATI catalyst I "upgraded" to for Battlefield 3 is broken for openCL uses. I'm going to revert back below 13.1 and restart my computer and see what happens!

Methinks you read that thread wrong. In conclusion it stated there was a problem server-side that seemed to be at fault, not the version of AMD Catalyst drivers you're using.

FYI - I've been using Catalyst 13.9 for some time now and I just had three AP running on my AMD GPU a few days ago.

They don't make 5GHz GPUs. The RAM your GPU uses might be 5GHz, but the GPU is more likely around 1GHz or less.

[Edit] Specs for your AMD Radeon HD 6870 per AMD's website:

AMD Radeon™ HD 6870 GPU Feature Summary:
    900MHz Engine Clock (this is the speed of your GPU)
    1GB GDDR5 Memory
    1050MHz Memory Clock (GDDR5) (this is the speed of your GPU's RAM clocked at 1GHz)
    134.4 Gbps memory bandwidth (maximum)
    2 TFLOPs compute power
    Double slot form factor
    TeraScale 2 Unified Processing Architecture
    1120 Stream Processors
    56 Texture Units
    128 Z/Stencil ROP Units
    32 Color ROP Units
    PCI Express® 2.1 x16 bus interface

Yeah I'm an overclocker on the GPU side, I know it's 'actual' rate is only around 1070mhz, but I was always under the impression that when you took into account the GDDR5 ram that it would actually have an 'effective' rate of around 5.3GHZ. Maybe I was mistaken in thinking that, but I wasn't trying to 'talk up' my anchient HD 6870- Haha. If I'm wrong then I'm wrong, no worries.

Anyway I moved my edit to this post so here is what it said.

Edit = It looks as though my comp has not recieved any AP work units since November 21st. At that time my RAC was over double what it is now. I have just reverted my Catalyst to 12.10 which I believe is what it used to be. Are you guys saying there is just no AP units to be done right now? Sorry if I'm confusing anyone. Lol!

Your 'actual' rate of your GPU is 900MHz, and no offense, but I seriously doubt you've overclocked that to 5GHz. But you are correct that the GDDR5 RAM is clocked at 1070MHz, and I do believe you are correct that it is effectively quadruple that speed, which would makes it's speed 4.28GHz (4,280MHz), and that you probably could overclock to about 5GHz, however, it isn't the speed of your GPUs RAM that is most important when crunching data. ;-)

No, in that thread linked, one of the Project Administrators missed a setting server-side that wasn't sending out any GPU AP work to AMD clients by mistake. He has corrected that now and work seems to be sent successfully now (or at least it is working for my system).

That's correct. If you check the Server status page from time to time, you'll be able to see when they start splitting AP units again. I'm guessing it probably won't be until at least the early part of next week, since they just finished the last batch yesterday.

I think it was just those running stock apps that were affected. Anonymous platform hosts seemed to be getting along just fine all along. But I don't think we'll know for sure if the fix really worked until they start splitting some new AP WUs.

I'll wait a few days and see what happens now that I've reverted to 12.10.
On a whim I hunted for another project that says ATI on it, and came across Collatz conjecture. I added that and bing! My GPU has tons of work instantly.

Oh and I wasn't claiming my overclock was 5GHZ, I don't think that would be stable even with liquid nitrogen as my cooling solution! I just thought GDDR5 meant 1070mhz x 5 = 5350mhz. But you are right, even overclocked I'm only running a modest 915mhz in regards to GPU clock speed. :)

Ok, I see where you were getting that number then. But no, GDDR5 simply means it's the 5th GDDR generation of RAM, not that it multiplies the RAM speed by 5. GDDR5 RAM is a double-data rate type RAM that transfers data on both the rising and falling edge of an oscillating clock frequency. So effectively the GDDR RAM speed is quadruple the stated RAM speed.

Message 1456171 - Posted: 21 Dec 2013, 18:28:17 UTC - in response to Message 1453982.

So after waiting a few days I decided to go ahead and update my drivers to the absolute newest that is offered for the HD 6870. After my comp cleared the tasks that were most current it updated and now I am swimming in work for my graphics card to do. Only one of them is astropulse, but I guess some of the SETI workunits have been designed to work with the newer catalyst drivers. Thanks everyone for the help!! :)
