1) Message boards : Number crunching : Intel HD Graphics 530 - Keeps "Postponing"... (Message 1763541)
Posted 9 hours ago by Profile Bill GProject donor

We can't see them, we see only ID: 7301566 and ID: 7440554

Even if you tell me now which is which I will not remember them for the next your post.

Maybe use this way:
Farragut
Prometheus
... which is this "code" (you can Copy/Paste to Notepad and reuse):
[url=http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=7301566]Farragut[/url] [url=http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=7440554]Prometheus[/url]

Or use Popchrom and make abbreviations (e.g. farr) which will expand to the full url= line

Your the only one complaining... I ALWAYS give the GPU description of the computer that I speak of that is in question....

So, if you can't follow, this your problem, NOT MINE!!!

Not true, I suggested you make is easier for us to see which computer you are talking about some time ago and you seemed to make the effort for a few posts.

That driver should be fine. It is working here. (as are even later drivers on some of my computers)

Take a look at the server status and you will see almost everything is down now.

Checked at 18:46, shows 18:40 as 'most recent' update time...

That would be correct as it updates, normally, every 10 minutes.

Posted 6 days ago by Profile Bill GProject donor
It seems that all my inconclusives on this computer: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=7844250&offset=0&show_names=0&state=3&appid= are against Apple/Darwin computers. Some show differing results, some show the same results with differing stats somewhere.
I was just wondering if there is something in the programing that is causing this? or this normal?

Thanks, makes sense now to me....no rounding.

OK I think I understand.

What was happening was a full core was not being assigned when it was .33 and only 3 WUs were running.
What I had was one core for the AP and what I wanted was a full core the 3 WUs running at the same time, or is that really what I do not want?

Same general subject: Can you tell from the amount of CPU being used whether you have assigned enough? I tried 2 cores for the AP and it only used .49 of that, or one core. So I assumed that 1 core was correct for the V7 AP.

I thought I had read that if your CPU is sitting at 100% usage that that is not a good thing. I have been trying to have a bit of extra CPU in reserve.

I have been playing around with CPU usage in my app.config, trying to keep my GPU properly busy. I had a rare opportunity to be running 3 WUs and 1 AP and noticed that I had my CPU usage set to .33 for the WUs. While the three were running they were not reserving a core. Realizing that .33 X 3 is .99 it seems you have to set the CPU to .34 so that 3 WUs will reserve a core.
As I said this may have been discussed before, just my observation.

Remove the section from your app_config. Just a guess, I know that stops getting APs on your CPU.

Also I was playing with WET and even when I chose more than the default options it was only showing about half the amount of space that windows shows as in use on the drive. I am assuming that restore points and other things!!!!!! will not be transferred but it still does not add up. Thanks.

It will not be the same amount of space as it does not transfer the OS. It has no need to, it is only files and settings (programs actually usually need to be reinstalled, but all the settings and data associated with the programs is transferred).
All you BOINC/SETI data will be transferred and, as mentioned, you just need to install the 64 bit BOINC over what is there. All the files and setting will still be there.

Side note: I just had to do a scratch install of Win10 as cloning to my new SSD drive would not work. I did not keep the same name for the computer and BOINC just picked me up and transferred every thing to the new system. I just copied all my folders from the old HD to the new SSD drive after I had done the scratch install, and it worked just fine after re-installing BOINC.

Thanks for the help I will assume that an internal drive will work the same as an external(I could pull the drive and make it external if needed) so I will give it a go and see. The upgrades that I plan for my daily driver(as soon as I get my refund) will probably require it anyway so it will have me a little bit ahead of the game.Thanks again.

Yes, an internal will do just as well, if you have one.

Attach an external HD to the system and run Windows Easy Transfer on the system drive. This will put your system on the external HD.
Now install the 64 bit OS to the disk that was running your OS (Not the external drive). (As others have mentioned, it must be a scratch install.
After that is complete, run WET again and put your files and settings back onto the newly installed 64 bit HD.
All should almost be as it was before.

I have done many systems using this method.

Good Luck, as always.

Edit: To answer your last question: You must do it this way because the addressing is different.

I just ran the lunatics v.44 installer on my rig that has a
NVIDIA GeForce GT 740 (4095MB) driver: 359.00 OpenCL: 1.2
.

When editing the app.info file I could not find a MB v8 GPU call for nvidia, only for the AP7 tasks.

Are the non GT(X) cards no longer supported for MBv8?

I sounds as if you did not check to run on the NV GPU. Try running the installer again would be my suggestion.

Kudos: To all who have been working so hard to get us a NVGPU Ap.

Gripe: People who hijack threads with an unrelated question and people who can not read the title of a thread, like "News" and post questions there.

At present there are no WUs being produced for the GPU so that is why you are not getting any. They should be coming soon.

Posted 7 Jan 2016 by Profile Bill GProject donor
Just thought I would throw this out there, I just completed 2 V8 WU's with my CUDA GPU.
It's on my GT 730 machine. Is this a fluke or isn't this possible?

I think there is something wrong with the naming of these APs as the STDERR output shows: "Detected setiathome_enhanced_v7 task."

I am guessing that it is a V7 task that is somehow in the conversion to V8 is mislabeled.

First, sorry wingmen for whatever happened to me and making you all wait.
On an upgrade on one computer I had created what I guess are 150 ghosts. They will all be timing out in the next days. They are all APs so there will be a very small batch to get sent out again.....good luck on getting a few.

A quick look at the -9's tells me that different codepaths were chosen and still the result validated. Both determinded the same result. My quess is that it is a valid nonvalid.

That is good. Thanks for looking.

That is all that would show up by default. That is without modifications.
