Forget the "cache" thing, they are all running dry again.

I keep having this message even with zero GPU tasks and like 40 cpu tasks in a six core/five gpu machine for weeks now.

That indicates some problem, obviously. Since your computers are hidden we can't get any hints from the web pages.

It just happens with my biggest rig, the others, smallers, get much much more work. Frustrating to say the least. BTW I guess this is the case with all top crunchers, they are all out of work and not getting any.

Checking the first ten top hosts, on average they've gotten 759 GPU (MB) tasks today (Berkeley time, approaching 10 am now).

They aren´t hidden anymore. Even then, my top rig is at #1 position right now, so i´m pretty sure that´s there is a problem, but it´s not with my machine, because I don´t own the most powerfull machine out there. So the big guns aren´t having work on the past days, obviously. Have to say that that machine it´s having work on the past 24 hours, without any change on my side too, and even building a cache, so something was fixed at that time.

Put me in for $100,00 Mark, for astropulse fundraiser. I do hope I loose, so I can enjoy it twice, for your purposes and for the server.

Hawkeye........may I call you that?

Amazing........all of you.

It's gonna be a sweet victory on my end.
Nothing but win win win win..............

Kitty victory!!!!!!!

I know, I laugh now, with a stick in my face./

My time to celebrate will come soon enough, I hope.


Yes you can :D
My mother smoke for 38 years and quit 10 years ago, and she is very well on these days. I´m pretty sure you have all the motivation you need around you, but here is some more.

It´s not just the client problem. Even if you request work and it´s available, it´s not beeing assigned. It keeps just sending 0 or 1 even if you are drain.

Not much about it, it´s just an 3x pci-e board. Depending on the processor you are using, any should do, providing you have a good case ventilation.

I have a DirectCU Asus 570, another 570 from Zotac, and a ZT-50203-10M 570 from zotac, all in the same machine. I´m becoming a 570 fan, and I really can recommend the 50203-10M, because it´s cooler than the other models, overclock better, it´s shorter (nice for tight cases) and it´s even cheaper than the previous models. You won´t regret from this card.

Posted 1081 days ago by Profile Firehawk
Bah, that sux. I run just AP on cpu (thought it´s better payed and run less units on cache) and when this happens, my RAC just stall.

So it seems the GTS 450 won´t do better than the GTS 250. You can probably run 2 units at time on this fermi gpu, but that too won´t help much.
It may consume less power aswell. A small improvement over GTS 250, if the price is the same.

Posted 1434 days ago by Profile Firehawk
I have some experience with some cards, and my average RAC with them, considering the period of like one year, are:

9600GT: 4/4.5k
GTS 250: 7/8k
GTX 260-core192: 11/12k
GTX 260-core216: 13/14k
GTX 460: ?? dunno yet, two are cooking atm
GTX 295: 22/25k

All of them are a bit overclocked, air cooled, nothing extreme. The performance, as a rule, is very proportional to the cost of the cards (not cnsidering energy of course, where some of them exceed).

Oh well, I just join them :)
I have nice friends in here, I guess the team can use my RAC to beat the germans ;)


Welcome aboard! Your RAC will be a huge contribution!

Steve

Congratulations to GPU Users Group for getting into the third place in RAC worldwide!

Those guys really are a "rising star"! Just a year ago they/you weren't even in the top 200 and now you are in 54, and RAC they/you also have risen about 50 places!

[edit]
And just in time to edit: also congratulations on breaching the 1,000,000 RAC barier!
