As I see, the most part of linked articles is based on the first message from this thread, and describes Friday's situation. Is any updates from Angel?
2) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : Wrong information about GPU on Computer Info page (Message 1794250)
Posted 7 Jun 2016 by Profile Commander Xell
Post:
BOINC application installed on Acer Aspire, model E5-522G-62QT (NX.MWLER.004).

BOINC application correctly detects and uses both GPUs - CPU internal and external.

| OpenCL: AMD/ATI GPU 0: Mullins (driver version 1800.8 (VM), device version OpenCL 2.0 AMD-APP (1800.8), 1648MB, 1648MB available, 128 GFLOPS peak)
| OpenCL: AMD/ATI GPU 1: Hainan (driver version 1800.8 (VM), device version OpenCL 1.2 AMD-APP (1800.8), 2048MB, 2048MB available, 320 GFLOPS peak)



However, in configuration on the site I can see two internal GPUs.

[2] AMD Mullins (1648MB) OpenCL: 2.0


(see it here -- http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=8015962)

Fix it, plz.

Yes, I certain. I don't know how to reproduce the situation. However, Android application sometimes acts as described by Richard. I will try to find something interesting in logs and to report later.

Official BOINC application - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=edu.berkeley.boinc

This application loses random crunched SETI@Home work units. I've run it on quad-core DEXP Ursus A270i and on quad-core Samsung SM-T530. Application thinks crunched work unit already sent and removes it from queue but SETI@Home server doesn't receive it. Thus, work unit becomes obsolete after timeout. For example, work unit 2069309013 has lost not so long ago and should become obsolete after April 14.

Master File Fetch


There is no solution: BOINC (windows client) ver.4.13 connects to a project without any problem, gets all statstics but says something as "no work from project - load new version, plz". But BOINC ver.4.19 and 4.45 can't get statistics and resetting project with "Master file fetch failed" error.

Post:
BOINC started too early, I think.
Let's give a team time for debugging BOINC.
Let's stop our BOINC SETI clients and go back to SAH-classic clients.

And sometime later we'll came back to working BOINC system.

> What was wrong with the seti 1 display of "x WU's and y amount of CPU time"?

Agree completely.

Users basically need not massive sophisticated statistics (especially when is not working or temporary disabled). Classic stats was much logical and pure clear.

Post:
BOINC system still down. Workunits are not uploading and results are not downloading. Some people become very much angry already. They uninstall BOINC clients for returning to classic SETI@Home (or never returning to ET-search) and his workunits will remain unfinished forever. Whether this results can be lost? Or not?

I had same messages on my computers instead dialup or not. System still down, I think.

Same thing.
I had 767 results in classic
( http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/fcgi-bin/fcgi?email=cxell@yahoo.com&cmd=user_stats_new ) but
only 722 was shown in BOINC stats.
