OP, 600 cobblestones credit for 2 seconds work; I would stick with it.

That is wild eh!
That is the reason I am switching to AP cpu from V7
The time per task and credit given for v7 makes no sense doing them
AP is double credit for computation time in compared to v7

The new credit system is just a laugh and I feel it should be changed

If you don´t do, try to run 2 WU at a time



My GPU is showing very good load.
I get 90% load with one task running.
If I run 2 at a time I get problems with watching video at the same time.
I do not own a TV so downloaded content it what I watch.
This machine runs 24/7

I have no problems with GPU tasks. The only problem with CPU is the estimates.
Will wait till it stabilizes itself
Ap should be up for another day hopefully



Thank you for all the replies

Until you reach that number just increase the cache size to 10 days, that will give you some more WU, not to many but it´s what you could do to get some more. Just not forget to back it to your normal number when the times stabilizes

It is already 10 and 10 additional.

I'll wait until I get 5 more done that should give me the 11 I need to have the server give more work in cache

I'm amazed at the difference from CPU to GPU.

53 minutes by GPU 460 768 meg
or
11 hours by CPU Phenom 2 1100T

Curious as to why there are only SSE Astropulse apps and not an SSE2

Would not SSE2 be faster than just SSE?

You can quickly fix it by adding a FLOPS entry into the app_info file.

I thought that is what the wisdom file did.

Ten tasks before time goes to normal.
Will do and we shall see if it does come down.
Thanks for the replies

I just hope AP stays up for a while so I can get a full cache for the week

Hello there

I have been doing Astropulse with my GPU under the anonymous platform and my allotment is 100 tasks for my cache.
The estimations are 53 minutes for each task.

I have just recently started doing CPU Astropulse tasks 601 CPU sse r2083 and the cache will only fill up to 20 tasks because the time estimation is 161 hours for each task.
Normally these estimations come down dramatically after a few tasks have been crunched thus telling the server I can take far more.
Now each new task coming in is 161 hours even though they only take 10-11 / task

Is there a way to solve this problem.
Wisdom file has generated for 2083 tasks. Would deleting the wisdom file help?

The estimations are only off for CPU tasks as my 604 SSE2 r2058 GPU tasks are okay and 100 is my limit.

Brings me to ask is there a CPU app for Astropulse that will use sse2 compared to just sse planned?

Thank You for any help at all.

All is back up but the destruction came from sudden power loss while machine was crunching. Probably in a write state while it had power loss. I tried a Linux live disk to try and get it back but every time I got to the project directory the copy failed meaning disk errors occurred.

Either way it's a done deal

Hello all

Just had the hydro guy come and put the stupid smart meter in and he did NOT tell anyone before he shut down all my hydro.
I came home to a computer that was no longer bootable under any circumstances.
Had to reformat and install again.

Lost entire cache of AP and Multibeam V7

Back up now.
Again very sorry.
Did have some prime words for the meter installer who toasted my OS

With my machine AMD Phenom 2 1100T it always ran hot.
What I did was simple.
Take off the side cover and place a small desk fan to blow in.
Cool as a cucumber now.

Intels run HOT.
Amd will run hot and the max temp is fairly low. 65C is about it.
The fan beside my computer works great.
Now temps at full load running 45-50C

Cheap and easy but you must clean often

Just a thought

Thanks for the very fast reply all
That was the one I was looking for.

I know the servers are very busy right now but I had the same problem right after upgrading from Win 7 Ultimate x64 to Service Pack 1
Just to be sure the setting went in. Thanks again to all who responded and JohnDK for finding it so fast

I have recently had to redo my system and since I updated to Win 7 x64 Service Pack 1 I have again been seeing time outs and retry.
My question is does anyone remember the fix for this.
There was command or a reg setting that fixed this right away.

Thanks for any help.

Higher RAC

Crunching V7 on GPU is just not the same as the old V6.
The credit given is small compred to say your GPU running AP tasks .
1 AMD 1100T with 5 cores active to crunch V7 Multibeam on a M4N72-E mobo which is DDR2 ram using Hyper X DDR2 1066
I use 1 Zotac 460 GTX 768 to crunch nothing but Astropulse and I am averaging 20000 RAC a day.

If I use my GPU to crunch multibeam I will receive a much lower RAC.

Drivers as well I have noticed an increase in speed and performance.
The latest Nidia driver 331.93 has solved playback studder while crunching and watching movies at the same time.

Try overclocking your NB clock and HT link to 2.6 or better if you can with the ram your using it will be much better for speed thus feeding your GPU will be faster. Phenoms like high NB clock and HT link
When I upped mine from 2 GHZ to 2.6 the system performed much better.

Posted 168 days ago by Profile Michael W.F. Miles
Well after thinking it was 7.2.27 I downloaded 7.2.28 and upon restarting Boinc I had 100% loading on all cores. 10 minutes later while on the same wu the load dropped to 50%

Weird long run times

Posted 168 days ago by Profile Michael W.F. Miles
I have noticed the cpu V7 multibeam going to 5 hours per wu compared to 2 hours or 2.5 maximum time.
Since yesterday I have noticed this increase in time and cpu usage is half of what it was before.
It was 95% - 100% loaded now 50% is what they are using.

Long time for these units.

Posted 214 days ago by Profile Michael W.F. Miles
The CUDA 42 are meant for Fermi cards and for the GPU only 23 should be used.
Cuda 5 is meant for Keplar cards

To not get these sent by the server you must go into your app_info.xml located in the project Directory and remove all the entries that refer to Cuda 4.2 and Cuda 5

You will only get Cuda 23

I'm no expert but that is why you are getting this work.

Let your cache run dry and run the lunatics installer and only select Cuda 23 work

Good for you Mr. Kitty man.

Excellent Idea. I just wish I had money, I would donate.
This is a idea only from the mind of msattler

You a good man bro

Try and uninstall flash player and see if you still get crashes.
FP has been giving me huge problems as of late

Just to rule it out

When I switched from Version 6 to Version 7 I had crash after crash.
I now don't run cpu tasks at all.
Just the GPU tasks and only AP when available

Try bumping up your CPU voltage and see if that helps. Same as GPU voltage
Version 7 puts far more stress on the CPU then Version 6 did for sure..

Just a thought

I have noticed a huge increase in GPU utilization.
Especially with v7 GPU tasks x41zc
I used to have to run 2 at a time on my Zotac 460 gtx to get 90% utilization but now with the new V7 1 at a time gives me the same utilization.

AP on the 460 crunching 604 tasks is the same. High GPU utilization.

For the original poster try using SIV ( SYSTEM INFORMATION VIEWER )by RED RAY and see what it reports for speed on your GPU.

It reports what the speeds really are.
I use it exclusively now for all information and GPU Over Clocking and works very well.
