OK..
I think I found the problem... I had set app_config.xml to 1 GPU 1 CPU (which appeared to be working fine for ages), just set it to 1 GPU 0.5 CPU and it seems to of fixed it...

I'll leave it for the night and see how things go...

as I said it was working fine a week ago.. then as far as I can tell I stopped getting work for that card for no reason I could see...

I'll try updating the drivers but I'm pretty sure it's on the same drivers it got the last work for that card on...

is there a shortage of work for newer AMD GPUs?
I haven't had any work for my R9-390 for about a week, but have been getting work for my HD7870

trying to figure out if something is broken my end or this is just normal...

thanks for the update... its good to hear something has happened...

ok that worked...
so it still didn't quit when there was activity... I checked the stderr and it didn't get the quit message until I quit boinc..

if there's anything else I can help with let me know


1) you said app acknowledged exit on BOINC quit. It means that at least sometimes flag about exit passed and obeyed. So we need to find out why it's not always passed and/or obeyed. So, try next things:
a) snooze (and look into slot stderr/task manager - will app's process terminates and what delay between your snooze request and process disappearance from task manager's list).
b) snooze GPU (same)
c) suspend project (same)
d) suspend currently executing GPU task (same).

2) as I wrote earlier look into system log - were there any mentions about display driver restarts ?

3) did you configure BOINC to stop all excution on not idle state (user presents /keyboard activity state) or only GPU tasks should stop in this state? Have you any another GPU project active to check if it's only AP issue? Early you said OpenCL (or not?) MB app exits correctly, right ?
(OpenCL MB uses absolutely same style of BOINC critical section handling as OpenCL AP, that's why I'm inclined to consider critical section handling mostly irrelevant to this issue)

EDIT:
seti stops correctly its just astropulse ATI that doesn't

Lets start to be more precise with terminology and distinguish CPU tasks from OpenCL/GPU tasks at least. Both apps are "SETI" in broad sense so perhaps you spoke about SETI MultiBeam (or SETI Enchanced) app. But CPU one or GPU one ?



OK I ran through what you asked above with the non-beta versions as a quick test..
every time I told boinc to suspend tasks, either CPU or GPU by any method it worked without fail... so the only time it doesn't work is when the PC has been idle for 10+ mins and boinc has started everything up and I start using my PC the GPU task wont stop by any method (suspend GPU tasks in the menu or just the running task)

I got the file you sent but I'm not sure what to do for the app_info.xml to run it..

the CPU/GPU load thing you said.. the GPU is still going so I don't think its crashed

Post:
Do you reserve a CPU core?
I see you are running on AMD FX 8350.
Especially on high blanked APs this CPU gets unresponsive if no core is freed.


I have boinc set to use all cores (8) at 50% (to keep the CPU fan slow)
I see AP CL GPU uses one core at full speed when it isn't shutting down (thats how i can tell its still running the CPU fan is noisy)

I'm about to head to bed so I can't run thru all of what you have asked.. but here is some of the info you asked about

I have boinc set to stop all tasks (cpu and gpu) on activity
so far I've seen seti7 beta (MB?) CPU and seti6 CPU tasks do as they should (stop when theres PC activity) and AP GPU and seti7 beta GPU tasks not stopping

when I say boinc appears to be running right I mean it says that the task has suspended but the task is still running in task manager... I can suspended the project, app or GPU/CPU in boinc and the task still continues to run in task manager EDIT: I was wrong.. if I force boinc to run tasks I can suspend them fine.. works correctly.. it appears its only when its using the stop on activity setting that things go screwy

I'm not sure what you mean by anonymous platform but I'm sure with some instructions I can set it up

ill come back tomorrow (maybe about 12 hours) and try the things in that list..

Post:
Ok there have been maybe 3 display driver crashes over the last 2 months...
is a previous driver crash, one that has been fixed before AP launches, likely to effect AP...

I don't turn off my machine.. so it can be weeks between restarts, so if the display driver crashes and restarts is that going to screw with AP until I restart my PC?

In the interest of trying to help out a bit more...

I looked at the stderr files and there is nothing of use in there other than a termination request acknowledgment (but only when I tell boinc to quit not when there's PC activity)

also joined the beta.. in the five mins I've run it, it DLed seti CL for ATI (but not AP) and that also doesn't stop correctly, same as with non-beta seti, CPU based beta seti stopped but ATI one didn't

if there's anything else I can help with let me know

Yes it appears it is... and as far as I can tell the only way to fix it is post on these forums... but since it seems I'm the only one with this issue the only thing I can think of doing is discontinuing use of astropulse... :(
