AP's!!
I caught the tail end of the feast and got 100 AP's total.
Needed to pay more attention to what I was doing.
Thanks again for all the help.

Thank you for all the help.
Now I think I know what I did. When I re-installed BOINC software a couple of months ago, I mistakenly used the old copy of Lunatics software. No wonder I couldn't get any AP. I must have been half asleep then.
I have something to do before I go to bed.
Thanks again, all.

I reverted back to 347.88 and still no AP.
Then I found a message under Notice tub says 'Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of AstroPulse v7'
I don't know how this happened but at least I know why no AP.
All I did was to install Lunatics_Win64_v0.42 and split GPU to 3.

Thank you, Brent.
I will try AP only when I get home :)

Mine are set as AP only and allow other work.
Apparently it's not working because I see 'AP work ready to send' are accumulating and I'm not getting any.....

I wonder why I'm not getting any AP tasks while many of you seem to be enjoying them...

Yeah, Intel Hyperthreading, 4 physical cores running 8 threads (etc). Someone will have to chime in for correct options by Boinc client version (as I use an old client), but setting % of processors to use out of the 8 threads should enable you to free one or two.

For the Cuda application process priority, there is a file called ***mbcude.cfg (it is named slightly differently depending on the stock application you process with), which can be edited with notepad or similar plantext editor. There is an example line to uncomment for processpriority, and a suitable setting could be 'normal'

Yes, I was in on Joe's email correspondance with Project staff, which indicated the results were missing a chunk of information, though oddly the result file had its proper closing tags. That amounts to a rare and interesting mystery, as opposed to the known application faults and Boinc mechanism quirks, because it is something that should have happened before if it was application related.

Should freeing a (virtual) core or two to feed the GPU, raising the process priority a little to make sure there are not weird delays going on, and/or switching to special builds all fail to change the symptoms in any way, then we have a genuine headscratcher :)


I reduced the load off of CPU's and haven't seen 'invalid' since last Tuesday :)
However, now I see 'Error' instead. Last Tuesday, actually there were more than 100 errors on one of my PC's. I wasn't worried that much because my PC didn't spend any time on them and returned errors but now I start to see errors after spending some GPU and CPU time.
I wonder if there was any change in the program which caused this...

Jason, thank you for taking time.
SSD I'm using is Corsair CSSD-F120GB2 and this is the only storage device on the system.
By virtual CPU, do you mean 4 core processor running 8 threads?

Going back to my original question, the reason that some of my returned WUs are labeled Invalid is due to a part of data is missing from those? If so, I didn't know there was a internal mechanism like that existed.
Thanks again.

Sorry for the delay I was away from home.
I started DPC Latency checker while all the calculations suspended,
After 30 seconds, I started GPU calculations and kept it running for over one minutes. GPU usage was between 95 and 99% according to nVidia software.
Here's what's said:
Test Interval: 1000
Current Latency: 139
Absolute Maximum:166
I hope I used the software right (I'm not sure what I measured...)
Thanks.

Thank you, Joe.
I'm using Lunatics_Win64_v0.42.

This probably had been discussed before but I couldn't find the explanation for it. So, could someone please direct me to the right answer?
What I see is that one of my PCs started accumulating invalid more than 30. So I looked at the WU and found many look like the following:

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=1816027316

Where only two WUs were returned and mine labeled invalid while the other one said inconclusive.
How can this be possible? I thought matching at least 2 results validate the calculation. So, until they receive the third result shouldn't the both of currently returned WUs be labeled inconclusive?

Thank you for the update.
This will give me a chance to clean up and reconfigure my PC's.

Thank you Matt.
Your update means a lot to me.
Now I will work on my hardware a bit and get ready for more WU!!

Why the hell can't we at least get a heads up on what the (new? old?) problems are?

I second,
I think it's a minimum responsibility and it doesn't cost much at all to do so. If I knew ahead of time I could plan on working on my hardware.....
I know I should have done it anyway judging from what's going on lately.

Looking at my machines now all have full caches and there are no upload or download problems.

Now I see.
My machine maxes out with 400 WU and won't last more than 24 hours without download. I wish I could increase the limit so that I don't need to worry about download problem like this...

All I ask is a little explanation.
Minimum courtesy to millions of contributors.
By the way, mine finally started downloading WUs.

All 400 WU completed a couple of minutes ago and nothing is left.
My Log says:
Requesting new tasks for CPU and NVIDIA
Scheduler request failed: attempting access to reference site
Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.........

Why do we need to stay in the darkness?
How much work does it take to just let us know what's going on?

3:30 at UC Berkeley? I hope they haven't left for happy hour.
My glass is still half full.
