1) Message boards : Number crunching : Now that v7 has rolled out.......... (Message 1376402)
Posted 416 days ago by Profile Francesco Forti
Hi, as suggested I have prepared an app_config.hml file for hosts in which GPU I want to run 2 intances.

Here is my file
<app_config>
<app>
<name>setiathome_v7</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.4</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
<app>
<name>astropulse_v6</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.4</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

As I can see, it' working.
In one hosts now I see two
SETI@home 6.04 AstroPulse v6 (opencl_nvidia_100) running
and in the other I see two
SETI@home 7.00 SETI@home v7 (cuda50) Running

Same file in both host.
But in both host I'v got the message : app setiathome_v7 not found in app_config.xml

It's not only this.
Reply quoting when translated becames "leave team" (!!)
"Send" is "No reply" !!
There are a lot of errors.

2) Host 6334665 has had plenty of v7 work. Host 5381180 has already got a whole shitload of work allocated to it, including 75 Astropulse v6 tasks, you'll have to get those resent, and crunched before you'll start getting Seti v7 tasks.

3) It is not CPU max, it is max_concurrent, that is GPU & CPU, if you put that as 4, and put gpu_usage as 0.5 you'll run two on the GPU and two on the CPU (a total of four), As with all Boinc configuration, it is in the Wiki: Client configuration

Claggy

2) Ok, Now (this morning, at my time) I see them too.
3) Ok, everything is clear, now. I will read that page.
Thanks

Very strange. My firefox 21 doesn't show me this.
Maybe is an other error in Italian layout and translation.

I see: "non letto Messaggio - Messaggi Scaduto - nessuna rispostaMessaggio.Modifica "

I think that in the italian table there is a misalignment of strings.
(see the other error hat I have reported)

I don't see any of this data.
Where is the date and time of your message?

I don't see date and time of each post.
So I can't evaluate if the post I find (with search, for example, or in long theads) is a recent or older one.
8) Questions and Answers : Web site : Italian translation wrong (Message 1375337)
Posted 418 days ago by Profile Francesco Forti
As I can see a lot of buttons are wrong translated.
For example "repy quoting" is "leave team". In Italian, of course !!!
This is not the only one.
I suggest to control all translations
Thanks

answer to claggy 1375285

1) clear
2) I have renamed app_inf in two hosts (one yesterday [6334665] and the other hours ago [5381180]) reverting to stock but no V7 at all. Only V6 of different types. Of course I have restard Boinc and reset project. Preferences are "SETI@home v7: yes". I usually walk step by step. If something works I extend to all hosts. I' still waitng to know if I have only to wait or if I have some mistake.
3)for CPU max can be all CPUS, for GPUS it depends from GPU type. I known which GPU is able to run 1 or 2 task, with the previous lunatics apps. I think it should be the same with new one, correct? Does exist some page showing us how to write a good app_config.xml?

I repeat here part of a discussion started in the news forum

1) All the Stock v7 GPU apps are Lunatics apps now!
2) You did go and enable 'SETI@home v7: yes' in your project preferences didn't you?
3) No, you copy and paste it from one of the posts in Number Crunching, and edit it to your requirements.



1: great! But Only GPU? Why not CPU Too? Sooner or Later?
2: NO, I didn't. Now I've done it on project page and I'v done "update" on the host 25 min ago. Nothing, untill now. Have I to reset again or have I only to wait?
3: What do you mean with (mine) requirements?

I have found this:

Make a new text file named app_config.xml and have this in the contents

<app_config>
<app>
<name>setiathome_v7</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.04</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>


and this

<app_config>
<app> <name>setiathome_enhanced</name>
<max_concurrent>6</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.04</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

... ad many others ....
Where can I find instructions to build different files?

As I understand I will have V6 and V7, both GPU and CPU.
On some Hosts I run only one GPU task, on three ones I run two.

Thanks in advance for any clear answer

Sorry but I have to bump my message.
There are too many silly discussions and flames about "cars".
Forum should be left clean for important and tecnical info.
Avoid noise if you want info.

Remove your app_info, Restart Boinc and reset the project, the project will send you the new applications.

I've done it and I've received only Astropulse_V6 6.01 for CPU and 04 for CUDA (standard apps).
I don't see any new app_info
Questions:
1) lunatics apps are dead? Forever?
2) When I will receive V7?
3) For config file in order to run multiple CUDA, have I to write it by hand?

Thanks in advance

Yes. Sorry, I was finding "graph" instead of "cricket" but 1 minute after my question I have found it.

Hi!
I have a question: in the new location can we have a graph like this http://fragment1.berkeley.edu/newcricket/grapher.cgi?target=%2Frouter-interfaces%2Finr-250%2Fgigabitethernet2_3;ranges=d%3Aw%3Am%3Ay;view=Octets?

Posted 616 days ago by Profile Francesco Forti
I have some hosts without work but if I go to see them here http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=5381180 I see that they have 3323 task in progress.
Other case is this http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=6334665 (no work but 86 running.
Other hosts are going to finish work.
Of course I cannot get any new job if seti is thinking that I have what I don't have ...

Posted 707 days ago by Profile Francesco Forti
Last week I had same problem but with boinc 7.0.28 and lunatics v0.40 32 bit.
As soon I had tried to run two instance of GPU task on a new GT 640 (driver 301.42) using count 0.5 I get 80 instance of GPU running and I had to deinstall adnd reinstall everithing. Other hosts, with older GTX cards, are also abbe to run two instances.

Try to use Tthrottle. See: http://efmer.eu/boinc/
You can set the temp you want.
You crunch less but you crunch.

Or it could be just a tired power supply or graphics card getting close to failure.

Yes. The problem was arising and I have changed PS. All OK now.
Thanks

Ok, I was thinking the same thing.
But later I have noticed that "black screen and restart" is appening every time I suspend work using Boinc icon in the appliction bar (suspend all or suspend GPU). As I restart, after some seconds I get the problem. Some times even if I exit from boinc and restart it. Seconds, I think, are the ones necessary to prepare the data for GPU and send data to it.
I stop GPU because when I use my PC with a VOIP application, sound is not good (I listen good but my interlocutor doesn't) and I have seen that if I stop BOINC (or olny GPU) the sond is good. As I restart the GPU task, I get the "black screen and restart". And at restart I get a new stop. I never have this in orher situations. I see that if PC is autorestartng (after maintenance) I don't have problems.
So I think that can be something in the suspend/restart in the 7.0.25 version
