Message 1703104 - Posted: 19 Jul 2015, 16:43:35 UTC - in response to Message 1703100.  

There is a Mac CPU App just sitting at Beta that can complete these VLARs twice as fast as the current Mac CPU App. It's just sitting there...


I was actually looking at Macs trying to work out what I'd need for basic development (preferably with some kindof GPU, not necessarily Cuda), and got pretty confused. Moving to a continuous integration path would mean automatic deployment cross platform (eventually). What's the deal with hardly any models with decent GPUs of any brand ?

I remove BOINC from my daily user Mac Laptop (Beta Seti) as I wasn't sure why it keep crashing all the time. The last time was so severe I almost couldn't recover the data on it. I was looking for the sad mac but even he wasn't around........

Pure luck I was able to recover it. So now only my back up mac is crunching any Seti..

Strange, the GPU list at SETI has more Mac GPUs than Windows does, http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/gpu_list.php, for AMD/ATI cards. Apple has Always favored ATI. I have a 1997 PowerMac with an ATI chip in it, Most iMacs came with ATI video. In fact I've been using Macs for 20 years and never saw an nVidia card until I bought a NV8800 back in 2008 for my last MacPro. So, if you are looking for CUDA cards in Macs you might have a hard time, there are a few. You would do better looking for the twin FirePros in all the new MacPros though. Personally I think a twin FirePro D700 machine would be nice.

Oh wait, now that I think about it, back when I was flashing PC ATI video cards to work in PMG4s I did buy a nVidia 5500. The flash didn't work so well though, the DVI didn't work and you had limited VGA resolutions, if I remember correctly. I had much better luck reducing the Mac ROM size down to 64k and flashing it onto a PC ATI card. I had a really nice ATI 850 in my PMG4...until the fan died...

What about running a small GPU off a thunderbolt 2 chassis ? Would it, or would it even be meant to work ? For development the flexibility is a bit more critical than the device integration.

[Edit:] ah I see that's a whole thing... found this: http://forum.techinferno.com/diy-e-gpu-projects/6578-implementations-hub-tb-ec-mpcie.html#Thunderbolt

Yes, there are a few of those devices around. I was looking at a breakout box that would hold 4 double wide cards and connected via a PCIe2 slot. It looked just like a second smaller MacPro that would set next to the real deal. Everything about it looked great, except the price.

Think it's a VLAR storm. No GPU work but my CPUs are filled with VLARs

Message 1703196 - Posted: 20 Jul 2015, 0:42:08 UTC

After suggestions on adjusting my personal preferences to 2 days of work and .3 of cache I got my GPU filled with max 100 GPU WUs. I changed it also to no CPU work as I had a full cache of that. My GPU is is an ATI R9 and uses CL, so I don't know if that makes any difference. I was totally out of GPU WUs until i made those changes.

I doubt it. I have a R7 260X and 10/.01 cache. I am low on WUs. I have all the VLARs I could ever want. Just need some GPU.

I know I have done something odd. All my GPU WUs are ati5_nocal unless it is a AP.

Take a look at my tasks Admiral I have close to 100 opencl_ati_cat132 for my R9 Not sure why yours are different. I was out of GPU task before that.

I like that unit. Horizontal mounting with spacing between cards...bonus handle on top.

Yup - NO GPU, CPU only, all VLAR all the time...

MB splitters have fallen off the pace again.
Luckily with all the VLARs about it hasn't affected the ready-to-send buffer. But if the splitter output remains this low, it won't take long to run out of work once the VLAR storm is over.

Nope.
Almost all bar a couple of my CPU WUs are VLARs, all of those in the last 6 hours are.

I briefly got some non vlars for my gpu earlier today, now I'm down to the last 2, then the gpu will go idle again <sigh> Meanwhile, after seeing my RAC reach an all time high I'm watching it plunge into the pit of depair ;-(

My top 2 computers haven't had any significant GPU work in 12 hours. There has been maybe 20-30 at 1 time but they are long gone....

Not sure what is going on.

same here, have 100 cpu tasks, but Seti reports I've reached a limit of tasks in progress, meanwhile ATI GPU is fast asleep doing nothing.
