That did it! re installation of (now trusted) Lunatics completed, re-tweaked App_info.xml for optimum use of GPUs. CPU is now doing SETI work.

Thanks to all for your helpful suggestions.

I downloaded "Lunatics Installer v0.43a (64-bit)". NAV inspects the file and then deletes it as being unsafe. Ho-hum.

Claggy, I turned on sched_op_debug as requested, stopped and started BOINC. Event log is posted below.

One line caught my eye .... at 10:03:11.. Is that the problem and is it something in App_info.xml that causes it?

Thanks,
Jim Wright

Posted 12 days ago by Profile Jim Wright
Claggy, Einstein is shut off (won't get new tasks). I tried it for a short while and observed it to be hogging the resources (both GPU and CPU). It was not playing fair, so I shut it off and purged all pending work..

You should be able to see my computer(s) on the website now.

Thanks,

Wiggo, Thanks for the suggestion. I had already done that and to no avail. Seems SETI does not want to send me any but the CUDA work units. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

6) Message boards : Number crunching : Cuda working fine, but no work fetched for 2x6 idle cores (Message 1641678)
Posted 13 days ago by Profile Jim Wright
Hi, I have twin NVIDIA GTX 760's on one machine and twin NVIDIA GTX 460's on another. All of them are real busy processing work units. But, the 6 cores on each machine remain idle waiting for SETI work. When I enable Milky Way, it delivers plenty of work for those cores, but nothing from SETI even when it is the only project expecting work..

What did I do wrong? Suggestions?

Thanks,
Jim Wright
7) Message boards : Number crunching : CUDA Lunatics, and multiple cuda threads (Message 1631407)
Posted 22 Jan 2015 by Profile Jim Wright
Do both machines have modified app_info.xml's with the Count changed?
YES

Does either machine a app_config.xml with figures that overrides the app_info.xml?
NO

What does the Boinc startup say? Does either see an app_config.xml?
I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DETERMINE THIS. But, I did find one error on the problem machine. The shortcut indicated the program on C: when it should be on G: along with the Program Date folder.

I have uninstalled BOINC and re-installed with the latest release (7.4.36).

Problem fixed.

Thanks,
Jim Wright

9) Message boards : Number crunching : CUDA Lunatics, and multiple cuda threads (Message 1631060)
Posted 22 Jan 2015 by Profile Jim Wright
I have one machine (6-way AMD with an NVIDIA GTX 465) which happily runs multiple tasks in the GPU.

The second machine is very similar (6-way AMD with an NVIDIA GTX 760) which will not run multiple cuda tasks even though lunatics is installed and the app_info.xml files are identical.

What did miss or mess up?

Thanks,

10) Message boards : Number crunching : NVIDIA GTX 760 (maybe 2 with SLI ??) (Message 1435947)
Posted 31 Oct 2013 by Profile Jim Wright
Bill,

With 3 or 4 work units in the GPU, it was maxed out. What I've been watching is the thru-time. ie: How long does it take to complete a work unit. Net is that though they take longer, I seem to complete more work per hour most of the time.

11) Message boards : Number crunching : NVIDIA GTX 760 (maybe 2 with SLI ??) (Message 1435485)
Posted 30 Oct 2013 by Profile Jim Wright
I have one GTX760 installed and have configured it to run 9 GPU tasks at the same time. Seems to be doing just fine. It now consumes about 2500MB of the 4GB memory, uses 98% of GPU and 63% of Memory Controller. Temp stays in the low 60s C.

Does anyone have experience with a second duplicate NVIDIA board? Is there any advantage? Should they be connected with SLI and would that confer any advantage?

Thanks

12) Questions and Answers : Getting started : Administrator priviledge for BoincMgr (Message 1425610)
Posted 8 Oct 2013 by Profile Jim Wright
Hi BilBg and thanks for the suggestion. However, that did not prevent invocation with administrator authority.

Does anyone know how to kill the tag for required administrator authority appended to a link or other program invocation.

BOINC 7.0.64 (x86) is installed on W7.

Thanks,

Why does BoincMgr REQUIRE that it be started under Administrator privileges and how may I change that so that it will start smoothly and without operator intervention from the START menu (Win7).

15) Message boards : Number crunching : Communicating with BOIINC client. Please wait ... (I am STILL waiting ...) (Message 1377059)
Posted 5 Jun 2013 by Profile Jim Wright
It all started a several of weeks ago when BOINC persistently failed to communicate with the Seti systems. Something about an http error. I was running the then new BOINC_7.0.64_windows_x86_64. So I switched back to a prior version (BOINC_7.0.28_windows_x86_64) and the problem went away. OR did it? BOINC seemed to be O.K. and work flowed through both Seti and Milky-way. Since things settled down for a while, I left it alone and then got the bright idea to try 64 again. O.K. for a while, then the same failures reappeared for Seti. Milky-way continued merrily on. Switch back to 28, try 64 a few days later, back to 28, then 64 again. Now everything fails with the "Communicating with BOINC client. Please wait ..." message and nothing is happening.

I last uninstalled BOINC, went into the registry and removed anything BOINC, rebooted, reinstalled 64, failure, reinstalled 28, failure (a couple of times). I cannot get BOINC to function at all. There was also a complaint about the app_info.xml file not able to process Astropulse.

The system is AMD Phenom II X6 1055T, 8GB RAM, 64-bit OS, Windows 7 Ultimate with Service Pack 1 and all current updates. The GPU is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 465. TThrottle is installed and active to limit system heat. There is a long list of other programs installed and I use the system heavily.

HELP!!!

Thanks,
Jim Wright

Thanks, you were spot-on. BOINC is now asking for CUDA tasks, unfortunately, there seem to be none available at the moment.

Hi,

Interesting, The JCW-OEM-11 machine has the Cuda processor and was the one processing only CUDA work until I uninstalled/reinstalled BOINC and rebooted.

The NVIDIA Control Panel tells me I have 352 CUDA Cores on the GeForce GTX 465 card with 4GB graphics memory and 1GB dedicated video memory. The Driver version is 306.23 and DirecX support is 11.1. The card continues to support twin displays (ViewSonic VX2450wmLED at 1920/1080. Stereoscopic 3D is not enabled.

What else would help you help me?

Thanks,
Jim Wright

Hi,

Well, I took the advice and lowered the "Maintain enough tasks ..." from 7 to 2, then 1, then 0 (a couple of days apart) and still received ONLY cuda tasks. Next, I drained my queue and uploaded all results, uninstalled BOINC, rebooted and reinstalled BOINC 7.0.28 (x64) with widgets 2.8.10.

NOW.....I am receiving ONLY non-cuda tasks. I did reinstall the copy of Lunatics (Lunatics_Win64v0.37_(SSE3+)_AP505r409_AKv8bx64_Cudax32f) that I had been previously using because a new one seems to be unavailable due to some licensing issue. Still no cuda tasks!

Any more suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim Wright

Hi, Actually, my problem is the opposite. I am receiving ONLY CUDA workunits and the six-core main processors are without any seti non-CUDA workunits.

My other machines (without CUDA) continue to receive seti non-CUDA workunits.

Suggestions?????

Thanks,
Jim

I have updated the firmware to 296.xx and the errors continue.

Is there some way to turn off the process of sending CUDA workunits to my machine?

Seems it is just a waste of (a lot of stuff) to continue receiving them and then having them all fail.

Thanks,
Jim Wright
