80% my machines On GPU Nvidia fault cranch. Allways error computation. Test you softwsre for compilation jobs pls.

Make sure you have latest divers for Card. Also make sure not to over clock as it will cause errors typically. Inch up if over clocking until you find stable point.

If you look at the output of the failed tasks, it shows an out of memory error. Have you altered the collatz sieve config file? If not, it may be that the defaults are borderline too high for your GPU. Using a smaller sieve size will reduce the memory required.

work with regulary error - http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/show_host_detail.php?hostid=566259
2156 jos -OK
87 jobs error

work Ok - http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/show_host_detail.php?hostid=566227
4350 -ok
11 -error


Configuration files are identical on both computers.
Use 100% CPU and GPU 100%.75% RAM
One machine crunch without errors, the second machine gives errors often.
Hardware new, and tested. Alternative boinc GPU project work without error allways.
All computers in my account without №566277 gives errors often. Part of the jobs work OK, another part gives a "calculation error". This error in programm code and compilation jobs for run.

I found a bug in the program, if a job is completed with "calculation error", the next job does not start until you press the "refresh" on the client Boink. This is a wery need fix, or we have to regularly go to the server and press the "update" if there is a job with a "calculation error", or boinc client not run new job for GPU calculations. my computer 566259 crunches half the job because I can not always press the "refresh" and sometimes I want to sleep and eat.

This machine work jobs-
12 -bad
470-OK

http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/show_host_detail.php?hostid=566342
57-bad
3-ok

Part of the settlement goes well, the part gives a "calculation error".

I've started getting calculation errors on my GTX 970, starting on March 28/29. that's when I updated my nvidia drivers to the latest, 364.72. These are the new "VR optimized" drivers - I wonder if they introduced a bug that broke compute with this update.

Hmm. It would seem that boinc lost the ability to see my GPU. After a reboot, it seems to be working again. That's the first time that's ever happened to me. Maybe a coincidence with the new "VR" driver. I'll see how it goes in the upcoming days.

I am getting calc error on many of my Collatz work units. Not all, just a lot. I have the latest version of the boinc software, updated to latest version of drivers (for each card), and I am running on several different nVidia cards in several different machines including (1) machine with (4) brand new GTX970's (most errors), one with a GTX275, another with GTX265, GTX 770, and the last with GTX260. None of them are over clocked at the moment, I verified I had the visual C++ 2014 installed and I have seen errors on CPU and GPU WU. I frequently see an error generated when I move the mouse and the WU pauses (computer in use) and then later when it restarts, calc error. How do I debug this?

Solved? My computing preference was set to .25 (15 seconds), I suspect that the WU was in the process of suspending and then reactivating? When I moved the mouse it would suspend GPU, I have several cards in the same machine so maybe this takes a few seconds to perform? then 15 seconds pass and it then tried to re-activate the WU's that were still in the process of suspending? I changed it to 5 min and all my errors went away.

well, problem is not solved. Its not happening as often but I am still getting WU that are failing with computation error. Examining the error records it says unknown error?
