Astropulse units make me happy, but cuda units help to heat the house in the winter! cmon cuda!


AstroPulse can be crunched by your NVidia GPU (CUDA) as well.

Are there just no Cuda workunits available at this time?

Cuda and CPU units are the same. If you're not getting any check your project preference and check mark the proper option. For further help post in the Q&A forum.

Downgrade your driver to a pre-340.xx version. ;-)

Cheers.

Hi, I am relatively new to the SETI@HOME and ASTROPULSE projects, I have noticed that when I attempt to add Astropulse work to my BIONIC system, they do not show in the "add project" screen.

I did some work for Astropulse, but I had to terminate the piece due to a system problem at the time.

Anyone have any Ideas about how I can add Astropulse back please?

Thanks in advance

AstroPulse is not a separate project... you don't add it to BOINC (not BIONIC).

AstroPulse work will automatically be downloaded by BOINC when it fetches more work and if there's any AstroPulse in the feeder at the time of the request.

Only if you allow for Astropulse to be worked on through the Seti@Home project preferences, else you can wait quite a long time. ;-)

Heh, good point. I assumed this wasn't necessary as he had previously downloaded AP work and I doubt he unchecked it from his preferences when he said he terminated the task. More likely, in this case, it is just a simple matter of waiting for AP to be available at the time of the work fetch.

Well there'd be more AP's out there if 3-4 AP splitters wouldn't keep working on 1 file, just like 4 of them are doing on file 07no11ai ATM. ;-)

This has been going on for quite some time now. :-(

Cheers.

It appears the tape you mention has been completed. I am not sure why but it appears there is nothing/very little coming out of the splitters. If they wanted to clear some tapes from the last they could do this by blowing through the 0.25 GB tapes. I'm aware that this won't create a lot of work but it would certainly clear some tapes from the list

Oh those files do complete (I'm not saying that they don't), but they do reduce the speed of the file being worked on and greatly slows the creation rate down by quite a lot. ;-)

In fact I'm just waiting for file 08jn14ab (the latest file with 3 tied up) to be finished to see if those same 3 splitters decide to go and work on just 1 file again.

Cheers.

Well those 3 splitters decided to all jump on file 09mr11ag together.

This is getting beyond a joke. :-(

Message 1612238 - Posted: 11 Dec 2014, 14:29:37 UTC

For the past few days to a week, I get an alert from BOINC about new notices.
When I click on alert, the BOINC astropulse manager comes up, a sidescreen of widgets with a line of code commands appears, but before I can click on the continue/cancel/etc., options at bottom, it disappears.
Since it does the same each time I boot the computer I'm assuming the widget installation or whatever, is failing and thus recycles each new boot.
Can anyone advise me as to what to do to fix the problem?

Thanks

This is the wrong thread to ask this question in. As this sounds like a BOINC issue, not a Seti one, I'd suggest http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_forum.php?id=10 as a better place to get an answer. Or http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_forum.php?id=10 where a lot of knowledgeable users hang out.

Well, if that is the reason or not for the pathetic splitting rate of AP WU's, I don't know.

However since the AP data base came back, it's almost impossible to build up any appreciable cache of AP WU's for my GPU. A cache for the CPU of AP WU's is easier to build up, since they take so much longer to crunch.

Something isn't right with the splitting rate of AP's, that's for sure.
