I have just 1 task left to run out of a total of 169, so as the WWE's Guy likes to say "FEED ME MORE, FEED ME MORE, FEED ME MORE"!! It felt great to run AP's again after the long drought, but unfortunately I don't think it will last.


I don't buy computers, I build them!!

Damn!!

I should've taken my CPU MB top up 1 day earlier than I did. :-O

I could've had both my CPU's back to crunching AP's by now otherwise. :-(

Cheers.

Well darn, darn and triple darn!!!

My computer crashed and something got corrupted, all tasks went to error on reboot, couldn't see anything in my client state files relating to SETI files, had to reattach to project.

So BONIC abandoned 95 AP tasks, I see some familiar names who got them ... So you are welcome :D

Does anyone know if BOINC will clean out all the WUs I have in my folder? they are all errors and not trying to run. Maybe I will leave them for a day, then delete them.

Aps have been split quite nicely for almost a day and my GPU caches have been filling so slowly that I have yet been able to get any for my CPU cache.

I have a couple of AP tasks for intel gpu.
They all run about 10 times longer, use very little GPU (4-6%) and deliver only
about 10% of credits per unit of time than all the others of the same type.
Has anyone experienced something similar?

That task is a Multibeam on NVIDIA GPU, not an Astropulse on Intel GPU.
I don't see anything wrong with it and there are not enough other Multibeam NVIDIA tasks from the same computer to compare it with.

Did you install a new driver ?
According to the output a recompile was performed after a task restart:

state.fold_buf_size_short=65536; state.fold_buf_size_long=262144
INFO: can't open binary kernel file: C:\ProgramData\BOINC/projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu\AstroPulse_Kernels_r2737.cl_IntelRHDGraphics4000.bin_V7_TWIN_FFA_1018104226, continue with recompile...
Info : Building Program (binary, clBuildProgram):main kernels: OK code 0

Maybe there is something wrong with this new driver ???

Sorry, wrong link.

All of their other tasks look relatively normal & are also using the v4226 driver. The "Number of app instances per device set to:3" does give me pause.
Another issue I see at the moment is that host is currently not reporting that it has an iGPU to BOINC. Only a GT 720M.

Somehow nv driver 353.30 messes up my intel-gpu tasks.
Once installed and settled, every new task started seems to run fine.
However, every intel-gpu tasks, that was started progresses very slowly with very little gpu utilization.
Unless there is a way to "reset" a single task, i guess, i just have to sit it out.

I'd try suspend and resume for Seti at home in Boinc manager projects tab. Or suspend and resume for the task.

Picked up 27 today myself. half an hour to 45mins each so far. Seems pretty quick to me considering the starting estimate is about 53hrs. Why so high an estimate? Anyhow, I certainly have the impression APs are sought after. Glad to have some...

After you return around 12 results the results estimated run-time will normalise. Reasons for such high runtimes at present I believe is because Boinc is getting used to running these tasks

Edited: Added the word estimate

The run-time will be unchanged, but the estimated run-time will normalise.
