Like Richard said something might have changed in V8 or there is an scheduler issue.

I`m almost certain i had a 0.029 wu a few days ago not marked as VLAR.
OTOH i have no problems with it.

You might be correct TBar.

I found a wu in my database AR 0.059 marked as VLAR.

Hmmm, here's another;

Not sure what you want to say.

VLAR`s starting AR 0.012 not 0.12.

So...All those other people are Wrong?

Let's say this. A normal task on that machine runs for 4.5 minutes and scores 64 credits, http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=4709532453
The last one of these "non-VLARs ran for 28 minutes and scored 100 credits, look above.
Now if this one also scores 100, Let's do the math;
34 divided by 4.5 = 7.5 x 64 = 480 credits for a normal task verses 100 for one of these non-VLARS
That's a 380 credit difference...
I WUZ Robbed.
How about that?


I`m not responsible for credit new.

Our in house VLAR task is PG0009, PG0036 is mid range task.
Thats a fact.

Very high CPU usage for WU's other than High AR's. Almost a full core, for AR's other than VHAR's where the CPU usage is 8-10% only.

Since the WU's I tested this with on BETA, was all above 2.something in AR, the low CPU usage was what surprised me most. However here on main, with mostly lower AR's the high CPU usage really shows.

Thanks Dog, that we do not get VLAR's for CPU here, or even this GTX980 would come to a screeching halt :-)

EDIT: But SoG is fast, scaringly fast. So I can live with high CPU usage, just dropping a CPU core from CPU crunching.

Geeze....


You can try _use_sleep or -use_sleep_ex 5 to reduce CPU usage.
But i suggst to use this only running multiple instances.

Well, running 3 at a time is indeed multiple instances. However, I'll wait and see if I can live with this, because by using -use_sleep, this app will not be any faster than CUDA50.


Thats why i suggested -use_sleep_ex 5.
Shouldn`t be much slower running 3 instances but reduces CPU usage at least a little bit.

Running benches atm.

Tut are you getting work for that OpenCL SOG?


Maybe you need to change plan claas to opencl_nvidia_sah until Eric has released plan class for SoG version.

-sbs 256

Did you reconsider omitting this one?

Well, I will try it here at first. Then maybe delete it. I think I need to do many more WU's with -sbs 256, before I can say for sure, whether or not it is faster or slower than the default setting.


Also try -sbs 192 and 384.

Should be faster on your GPU.

Hope you enjoyed your lunch Mike - (too) many hours to go


Its too short to enjoy Rob, thanks anyways.
Only 15 minutes here.
The good part is, its only one more hour left after lunch.

So now i`m winning after work.

I wrote a PM to Skildude last year.
He is upset about some users.

I hope its not me :(


Hope it's not me either.. Good to see you again Mike :)


Good to see you too Julie. :)

He did some testing for me every once in while.
I liked him.
