Hello

i would like to know if there is a way to obtain more than 50 wu on a system with one gpu

In my situation i have internet connection each 2 days the 50 wus are done in less than 10 hours .. so i wont have any more work to do.
I was thinking if maybe simulating 2 gpus i can have more wus.

Could someone give a suggestion?
Best regards

The Admin put the limits on, he is the only one that can take them off.

I think the solution is for the server to issue tasks that take longer to process as opposed to simply issuing more tasks. The downtime is a result of a server issue likely caused by the increased load from processing a higher volume of WUs.

The admin, Slicker, has stated that he is working on this problem and although he's had help with the development of the applications, I think it's a one man show as far as maintaining the BOINC server.

Most BOINC projects are long term endeavors, so I treat this issues as just a bump in the road.

Happy computing.

I see this issue was raised back in October of 2015 (Message 21574) as well as other more recent messages and none have been addressed by the project manager, so I would not hold my breath for any action anytime soon.

Slicker had mentioned something some time agao about developing GPU work units with longer process times. Seems that has run into some snags.
