Dunno why you would not get more AP Cuda work....
Right now, I have 1,393 WUs in cache...946 of them are AP.
I know what the kitties are going to be working on for a while!!

Few of my crunchers have fallen back on Einstein. And looks as though the beer companies in Juan's neighborhood would be a happy lot.

You might want to try putting some parameters in your ap_cmdline_win_x86_SSE2_OpenCL_NV.txt file, the following is a good start:

-unroll 10 -ffa_block 6144 -ffa_block_fetch 1536

Unfortunately nothing is being split.
Current result creation rate is 0.2658 (ie 0), and has been for several hours. Almost all of my requsts for work are for the last 5+ hours are resulting in "project has no tasks avalable" messages, with just the odd one or two getting work- often only 1 WU.
I think something's jammed up somewhere.

I've got a GTX 680 and a Quadro K2000M, each of which has loads and loads of memory.

I run two tasks simultaneously on both.

Is there any way I can put all that memory to use? I've set
-unroll 12 -ffa_block 8192 -ffa_block_fetch 4096
on both, as recommended in the readme.

Is there anything to gain from increasing those values further?

Still no new AP or MB work, now all my 3 fastest hosts are running empty of GPU work. The good thing is my power drain drops more than 1.5 kw at least. So i could save some money to buy more beers.

One good thing about the extra run time is that the limited cache lasts longer.
Even with that, at the present rate i'll be out of work before nightfall if the splitters don't start splitting again.

Looks like i'll be out of GPU work by lunch time.
Won't help the plummeting RAC at all.

My 660's have been out of SETI work for 3hrs now and my 550Ti's just switched over to their backup project. :-(

Cheers.

If someone in the loop could let the staff know there's a problem with the splitters before they knock off for the weekend it would be appreciated.

Just about out of GPU work. Didn't even make to close to lunch.

The splitters certainly are having issues, on the Server Status page sometimes all but one shows as green, then it's mostly red. Even when they are running 10/s is the most i've seen in the last 24hours or so. Even with the reduced load of v7 20/s seems to be the minimum to meet demand & still build up (although very slowly) a ready-to-send buffer.


Ever since the MB splitters were converted to PFB their output has been seriously limited. With several of them now repeatedly failing that limited output is making things even worse.



EDIT- i should have posted earlier.
The *very* second i hit OK for this post, i got 59 WUs for one of my systems GPUs. Another couple of hundred WUs all round & i should be good till tomorrow.

I did an upgrade to BOINC 7.0.64 earlier today. Imagine my surprise when I could not get any work afterward. However, I did got 4 AP tasks a few hours later.

I haven't read through this whole thread carefully, so ignore me if I say something stupid. I'd better amend that: Ignore me if I say something even more stupid than you would expect.

You did go to Preferences and enable v7 work, didn't you?
