what is your basis for thinking it's slow?

I compared your last 250 tasks to other systems and it looks fine to me. roughly the same run times and credit awarded as other 2080s running the same type of tasks

A cursory glance at Ian's mixed 2080Ti/2080 system seems to show that his 2080's are running no more than 1 or 2 seconds faster than yours, if that.

Well, it seems more tinkering is just an annoying Error Fest where most attempts end in compiling errors. It's a major challenge to even get wxWidgets to compile by itself, much less to get Boinc and wxWidgets to compile together. Seems the only pair that works is wxWidgets 2.8.12 & 6.10.37, and even then you have to add a file to the Makefile or that too will end in an Error. What you get is an App that works for the most part using SSL 1.0 and libcurl3 in 18.04 but will not work in the newer systems. It really doesn't seem worth the effort, and mostly a waste of time. Speaking of time, I need to test this eBayed Power Supply that arrived with just Two cables, none of which was even a main power cable. Fortunately I have spare cables that will work and it was pretty cheap for an EVGA 850BQ. I actually bought some cables from an EVGA 850GQ a few months ago to work on my EVGA 650BQ & 750B2, now, I know where the cables came from...
...could somebody who knows what they're doing just compile this thing in ubuntu 18.04 x64 for me?
Well, it doesn't appear to work with OpenSSL 1.1, but, 18.04 can use either. It also needs libcurl-openssl1.0-dev, but that's also in 18.04...just don't try it in 19.04. Sometimes the menu bar goes hiding too, but it does seem to work,

Really cool tool there. Didn't know of it. Bookmarked now. Thanks. I always did my XML sanity check with a browser but that has some limitations. I will be using this one now.

Finding syntax errors without a compiler/verifier pointing the way is VERY hard.

Or just plain old rushing what a lot of us old fellows learned over many years will take plenty of time when editing it (I always make a duplicate copy before editing anyway just in case I miss something). ;-)

Not sure what happened, but this machine dropped in RAC Like crazy. Would it make any sense to switch the 2070 gpus to the amd 1600x, or the i7-3770k is good enough. Not sure where the bottle neck is here.

. . A whole lot of things I suspect. First, lost time because of the server outage over the weekend. Then the fact that you aborted 45 tasks which will throttle your work allocation but mainly because you have 2 GPU cards of different types but only the 1080 seems to be doing any work. This leads me to suspect you do not have the 'use_all_gpus" set in your cc_config.xml?

I checked the 'use_all_gpus file and it is set to use both gpus, I also check the nvidia-smi and both gpus are doing work.

You have a lot of aborted WU with time limit exceed, that could cause the drop on the RAC since all the crunching time was wasted.

That happening on the 8 of oct.

Need to check the usual stuff to see if you find something who causes that.

My clue, a OS update without a host reset.

Suggestion, stop all crunching process before update the OS and reboot the host after done, even when it shows is not needed.

Apparently now is running fine.

. . OK, I only looked at the first few pages of your results and found only results from the 1080. Well that theory is shot full of holes ... :)

. . For what it is worth my RACs dropped after the outage as expected, but they have continued to drop each day since so Credit Screw is just messing with us all too ...

These systems once I setup, I leave at the DC and dont touch them. I didnt run any updates nor leave auto updates on.

You have a lot of aborted WU with time limit exceed, that could cause the drop on the RAC since all the crunching time was wasted.


These systems once I setup, I leave at the DC and dont touch them. I didnt run any updates nor leave auto updates on.

Running Ubuntu 18.04 here. There is definitely something going on that intermittently causes those "timelimit exceeded" problems. I do see it from time to time, and a reboot solves the issue until it recurs. What I have seen is that before the first of them, I see a single WU that aborted with a compute error on the same GPU that then begins throwing "exceeded" errors. My suspicion is that something in the app or WU causes the driver for that GPU to explode, requiring a reboot to regain sanity. But I have no way to prove this. The other thing that may contribute, on NV at least, is borderline power to GPUs causing them to generate communications errors on the bus. NVs seem very susceptible to this. I just redid my power connections on the machine that was doing this most, and haven't seen further errors since. Getting some 8-pin CPU to GPU adapters really helped this as opposed to the 4-pin Molex splitters. I'm running power pig GTX980s, ymmv.

The Linux equivalent of the Windows TDR error and driver reset is what causes either one or all gpus to go missing and generate those errors. The only solution is a reboot. Also best to clear out the .nv Compute Cache primitives in case they got corrupted and regenerate them upon restart.
