Could anyone who got alerts download from my site and check if you get the same please.
Just to reduce possibilities.


No problems from your site, Mike. Wether with the 32Bit nor the 64Bit Version.
Installed already the 64Bit Version. Checked with Avira.

@bill - Yes he has, but no reason why the fundraising shouldn't continue in the name of the project.

Only to say it clear...i would'nt donate at each call from each Person!

Only a few Persons have the skill to motivate others:

6) Message boards : Number crunching : Bitcoin Utopia (a BOINC project) messing up credit system (Message 1559437)
Posted 20 Aug 2014 by Profile HelliProject donor
The best credit system is one that was used on classic.

Return to Number of WU's processed. The bigger & faster systems will process more than those systems used for everyday purposes and still allow all to crunch.

Badges can still be used, i.e., 1,000,000 WU's, 5/10/15,000,000 etc etc.

The boinc credit system became meaningless several years ago.


Dito!

But....it wont't happen. :-(
7) Message boards : Number crunching : Question about dedicating CPU cores to GPU support w/Lunatics apps. (Message 1480592)

Thanks for your generous Advice, Mike.

8) Message boards : Number crunching : Question about dedicating CPU cores to GPU support w/Lunatics apps. (Message 1480506)
Posted 22 Feb 2014 by Profile HelliProject donor
I think it was suggested that by modifying app_info, one could basically get Boinc to 'auto switch', and dedicate the CPU cores to the GPUs when needed, but release them for CPU MB or AP work when the GPUs are doing MB and don't need them.
If so, that would make better use of my CPU resources between AP splitting runs.

How would that work with multiple GPUs? And with 2 AP tasks per GPU? It the setting per GPU? Per running instance of the app?


Edit app_info.xml and change the "avg CPU" and "max CPU" lines as follows:

<app_version>
<app_name>astropulse_v6</app_name>
<version_num>604</version_num>
<avg_ncpus>1.0</avg_ncpus>
<max_ncpus>1.0</max_ncpus>

There are two app sections for 1843, so either pick the right plan class or just do both of them.

This will reserve 1 cpu core for each task running and release them when not needed. A value of .5 will reserve 1 for every two tasks running - you might want to try that if you install the Beta Juan mentioned. I use .5 for cuda 50 tasks (2 at a time) and do not reserve any cores in BOINC's computing preferences. I use app_config.xml for these settings but you can't do that with your version of BOINC.




Thank you, I have been waiting for this. :-)

@Helli
On your system i would suggest to set it like this.

<avg_ncpus>0.5</avg_ncpus>
<max_ncpus>0.5</max_ncpus>

Also add this to the comandline or ap_cmdline_win_x86_SSE2_OpenCL_NV.txt file

-unroll 12 -ffa_block 12288 -ffa_block_fetch 6144

This should speed your 780 up.



Thanks Mike, i will try your advise immediately.

Mike, i've added a (second) GTX780 to my Rig - do i have to change
something for optimal workload?

Perhaps - i'm running two Workunits per GPU.

Depends....
Helli has 8 cores available, not just 4.

Mark, i had disabled HT as Mike has viewed my Setup. The last weeks
i had run the GTX780 alone because i wanted to know how much the
GTX780 can do... (38k) ;-)

Yup, a few are flowing. Shorties. 5 minutes each. But if you can do
16 Workunits in five Minutes then you have to be very patiently. ;-)

Well, two little Milestones for me: Reaching 60M on SETI and
breaking 100K RAC with one Rig with only two GTX590 (CPU idle). :)

Hope to reach 110K soon. :D

....

The awesome support means I can get a Corsair Gold AX-1200 on the way, which will probably serve as primary while the RMA on the unit takes place, as well as serve for future upgrades.

These donations are always well invested. :-)
