There is a test suite available from either Lunatics or Crunchers Anonymous. I have not checked if You are a member of either of those, but it would be easiest to download from those places. I'm not sure if it is available without a login.

It is a bunch of testWu's and a shell script that runs a reference/standard app and multiple your own apps one after another and displays the execution times and the validity of the results.

I'll check where to find the needed files (unless someone with more knowledge can answer immediately.) EDIT: Found it, please check if You can open it.

Can you open this link http://www.arkayn.us/forum/index.php?board=9.0 ?


Yes, you can download without an account.

Best bet would be BOINCtasks.

You will have to install Wine to use it, but it does work.

I run lunatics on a Win7 I7 feeding two GTX770's and have my ap_cmdline_win_x86_SSE2_OpenCL_NV.txt set to:

-unroll 10 -ffa_block 6144 -ffa_block_fetch 1536 -hp

because the instructions in ReadMe_AstroPulse_OpenCL_NV.txt say that's what to set it to for mid range cards with less than 12 compute units.

The GTX770 only has 8. You may be inducing some memory thrashing because you're trying to feed your 770 too much at a time.

My AP times are averaging around 1,800 seconds while your AP times are around 11,000 seconds.

The only other difference I see is that you have some 9500GTs installed along-side your GTX770's. I have some 9500GTs sitting on a shelf because they're only slightly faster than a core. They're dogs. If I were you, I'd remove them because they may be the biggest factor is slowing down your 770s--but that's only a guess because I'm not absolutely sure how the scheduler deals with two such *widely* different cards in the same system.


I think I would go with the 9500GT being an issue. I run this on both my 670 and 760 with no problems.

25) Message boards : Number crunching : Anniversary certificates [Resolved] (Message 1520258)
Posted 59 days ago by Profile arkayn
Greetings,

I just downloaded a new anniversary certificate marking my 15th year here at SETI@Home. Windows Photo Viewer and PhotoFiltre cannot display the image. I saved it as an image file. What needs to be done or used to view this image on my PC? Or, is there something I need to do to get the image saved as an image if "Save image as..." is not the proper method for saving the image? I have Win7 Pro 64 bit and use the latest version of Firefox (which is looking more like Chrome than my beloved Firefox of the past).

Any info would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance. :)

Keep on BOINCing...! :)

What's the file extension?


http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/cert1.php

Looks like it is generated dynamically.

Best bet might be a screenshot.

I just can't get myself to pull the trigger on something I know I'll never use

That isn't the point David. It is a memento and a souvenir of a project that you belong to. You don't HAVE to wear it, just treasure it.


I have mine now...

Looking forward to the T-shirt Uli:)


Mine should be here either today or tomorrow depending on the post office.

For one, that version of BOINC is fairly old and most likely has some bugs.

Try at least 7.2.42.

All of my uploads are going through just fine.
33) Message boards : Number crunching : GTX7xx Cooling question (Message 1509068)
Posted 86 days ago by Profile arkayn
My 760 is running around 61 to 67 depending on the indoor temp.

It is also above the 670 in the case.

Both are EVGA, but only the 760 has the ACX cooling.


I'm thinking about 2 x EVGA GTX750Ti FTW.

How are your CPU & case temps?


I don't crunch on the CPU, so those temps are quite normal.

Hi Uli

I'd be happy to get some Tee's and then re-distribute within UK.

Just let me know what the costs per each shirt will be and the shipping costs for maybe 25, 50 and 100 pcs and then we can go from there.

regards
Tim
Founder, UK BOINC Team

PS PM me for my email addy :)


Looks like this idea has died - no-one has got in touch and no posts since 9th April.....

Oh well.... :(


Uli has just been real busy lately, she should get back into the flow of the forums shortly.
37) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : BOINC not using CUDA after upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04 (Message 1505884)
Posted 94 days ago by Profile arkayn
If you shut down BOINC and then restart it, does it detect the GPU's?
38) Questions and Answers : Windows : a little lost (Message 1504799)
Posted 96 days ago by Profile arkayn
Guys, the data directory is the root directory of the d: drive, something that Windows doesn't like. I have detailed before in another post how to fix that, but can't link to it as I swipe this from my phone.

Edit: thanks Arkayn.


No problem, I did a google search for GPU detection failed :error type 1 and found that thread.

Correct it's a desktop, the processer does have a gpu, but I'm running all graphics from a dedicated video card. I'm not too sure how I would turn it off. S, no I haven't disabled it. Or I haven't purposely. The video card is Geforce 8800 GTS with the most recent driver (9.18.13.3523) There is a Radon R7 in the mail, so there'll be a new set of hardware and drivers to deal with next week. I reinstalled the manager with out the services, but still not detection of a gpu.

The VirtualBox was for other Bionic programs, but I'm not running them any more. Is that causing an issue?

4/15/2014 3:55:38 PM | | Data directory: D:\
4/15/2014 3:55:38 PM | | GPU detection failed. error code 1


That is another known issue as documented in this thread.
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=9088#53445

Easiest solution is to make a new folder on that drive, move all the BOINC contents into that folder and do another reinstall and point to the new folder.

Posted 97 days ago by Profile arkayn
Probably the easiest fix would be to disable the benchmark entirely.

This is what I have in my cc_config.xml file. It goes into the BOINC data folder.
