Post:
The 8.05 is a 64bit app that suits 64bit CPU's that don't have AVX support, the 8.00 is just a 32bit app. ;-)

157 all up from that batch and 24 left to process.

Cheers.

I got 6 resends on top of that and the last 1 left to return now is a CPU task that's 6hrs into a possible 14hr on my old AMD rig.

Cheers.

Maybe the problem is all the Arecibo VHAR's that are also flowing through the system ATM which is making it hard for my old Borg battle to recover a good GPU cache after all those ghosts it had were recently flushed out (the latest feast of AP work has helped a bit there though).

A few more guppies wouldn't go astray on that rig instead of all those VHAR's which are done in 5-6mins even on its GTX 660's (3-4mins on the 1060's).

[edit] My other 2 rigs are holding their caches pretty well ATM.

Cheers.

APR actually settles very quickly, usually just a matter of hours for faster GPUs. Several days for slower/ low core count CPUs.
If you run more than 1 WU at a time on your GPU, your APR value will be way down compared to those that only run 1WU at a time.
APR is based on the time to process a WU, running 2 at a time it takes longer to process the WUs, hence the higher APR.

Well that is another factor against me because I run two tasks per GPU card. I believe when you run Petri's app, it requires a single task per card. I don't know how many concurrent tasks per card, if any, that Wiggo runs on his 1060s. I am trying to compare apples to apples here, both machines on Windows7 for example and not include the outliers of Linux machines and Petri's app.

I only run single tasks on my cards Keith.

I left off the -tt 1500 bit, but that noticeably cut around 1min 30secs off the 1060's already short Guppie times while at the same time cutting from the same amount of time from the 660's isn't quite so apparent though still an improvement.

Cheers.


Wiggo,
I am unclear. Did dropping the -tt 1500 cut the "1 min 30 secs off" or did adding it? I have a couple of 1060's in two different boxes and I am always interested in "faster" :)

Thanks,
Tom

I never implemented the -tt 1500 bit to start with and the lower time came just from implementing the rest of the cmdline over plain stock Tom. ;-)

I think that's what they call a cattle car (railroad) in europe.

Yep a rail carriage that carries live stock in many countries around the world are called "stock cars" as apposed to those 4 wheel things that go around in circles that are far from being "stock" in any shape or form. ;-)

. . Hi Wiggo,

. . Dare I say ... at last! :)

Stephen

:)

Well it's the Borg (Athlon II X4 w/ dual 660's and winter time heater) that's having the big problems, but it also has just cleared over 270 ghost tasks over the last 48hrs which may have been part of its problem, though what I see is the splitters just idling away while I've been home (I have been out a few times for a few hours each time today) with no ramp up now and again as what usually happens.

I've thrown an overthrow on bed just in case for the night anyway. ;-)

Cheers.

Interesting chart.



Have to agree, it does raise more questions than answers.

Not sufficient

What about a chart that shows "others" who are not from the E.U.?
