Never delete your results because the uploads don't go!! Since Monday, I've had numberous work units that said "uploading". They went sometime early this morning. You have to trust the application. BOINC knows what's there and when the servers free up will take care of the uploads. There's also times when downloads freeze for a bit. I hope you don't delete those?

I believe that what Sutaru's is doing is reducing the pending uploads down below the CPUs x2 so that the schedular will give him a refill of his CUDA cache. My policy is if I have crunched the WU I will report it not abort it for any reason. Isn't that why other GPU projects are out there? I ran 5 long GPU WU's and several CPU WU's on my backup projects while I was waiting for Seti work. Some crunchers JUST want to do S@h work and that is fine with me but aborting finished WU's isn't right in my mind but that's just my opinion.

Yes, sorry that I need to do it - but, why is BOINC unfair to GPU cruncher..?

I needed to delete the ULs down to 8, that BOINC can ask again for new work.
The GPU cruncher idled because of no work, since ~ 2 days or something..


'increase '> CPUs x2' in UL for work request' -> [http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=54711]

Once I was considering it, never done it.
But I am shure we can take WU from client_state.xml and save all relevant data,
when normal upload works, just add it to .xml file and upload.
Takes some time to study, but it shall work.
30 WUs is 30 WUs!

All the work I got this morning came from a Sept and a Dec tape and they dont show at all on the splitter but I am sure someone will be able to inform me on the reason...my guess is an offline tape from storage?

Most likely reissues.

The word "unfair" seems to suggest that BOINC discriminates or that this is a design decision.

It's far more likely that this is an area where the BOINC work fetch algorithm doesn't work as well as it could.

I don't know if the BOINC project needs feedback on this, or if they're fully up to speed, but I seem to remember reading about changes that should make it work better.

Of course, if work is tight, it's possible that there just isn't enough.

BOINC v6.10.x uses the max of ncpus, copros_cuda-count and coproc_ati-count, so it doesn't matter if it's gpu or cpu.
