1) Message boards : Number crunching : 6850 performance? (Message 10513)
Posted 2605 days ago by Profile James Nunley
With Santa busily loading up his sleigh I need to get my letter sent to him fairly soon. I'm going to be asking for a new videocard somewhere around 150 - 200 dollars. anyone crunching with the 6850 here? what kind of performance are you getting?

Or any better suggestions in that price range.

4) Message boards : Number crunching : Suddenly only requesting CPU workunits (Message 5726)

For some reason my system is only requesting CPU work units even though I have cpu unchecked in preferences. it requests cpu units then gives the following message. Does not seem to be asking for gpu units at all


1/21/2010 7:30:59 PM Collatz Conjecture Reporting 4 completed tasks, requesting new tasks for CPU
1/21/2010 7:31:04 PM Collatz Conjecture Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
1/21/2010 7:31:04 PM Collatz Conjecture Message from server: No work sent
1/21/2010 7:31:04 PM Collatz Conjecture Message from server: Your computer has no NVIDIA GPU
1/21/2010 7:31:04 PM Collatz Conjecture Message from server: ATI Catalyst 8.12+ needed to use GPU
1/21/2010 7:31:04 PM Collatz Conjecture Message from server: ATI Catalyst 9.1+ needed to use GPU

Everything was working before and nothing was changed on the system except it is now running the 2.09 version application that recently became standard. Could this have something to do with it?


as of now it still has some workunits in its cache, but it is not getting any new ones.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

James

Just about every boinc project has problems now and again. This happens to be one of the best around.

Sure there are times the server goes down because of unforseen circumstances, but you still get your credits eventually.

Take some time and read some of the threads about outages, they arent necessarily the projects fault. ie. people not upgrading to latest client.


So give slicker a break and don't be so demanding.

Remember you VOLUNTEER so if you don't like it go elsewhere

Thanks

7) Message boards : Number crunching : ATI 2.05 Application Released, updated to 2.05b (Message 2510)

2.05 seems to be substantially slower. Only gets GPU load up to 75% instead of the 98% of the 2.04 app.


Yet even with the lower GPU load my system is much less responsive when app is running.

Just did a restart of boinc to see if that helps and noticed this line in boinc manager.....



ATI GPU 0: R730 (CAL version 1.3.145, 512MB, 496GFLOPS)


I appears the system thinks there are no ati gpus or is that just the GPU identification number. as in GPU #0

any ideas?

all help appreciated

I have been running using app_info file, but I just installed Boinc 6.10.7 so I thought I'd try it without and see what happens.

Got it running and Boinc first requested CPU tasks and started crunching them.

Then it requested GPU tasks and downloaded a bunch, but they are all sitting there waiting to start.

GPU activity is at 0

Is there anything else I need to change to get this running?

Well I tried everything I could think of and nothing seems to work. So I gave up and installed MS Virtual PC and am running cpu work on that. Inelegant, but it works.

I tried this and 2 collatz units run and everything else just stays at ready to start


I tried replacing the -1 with 4 and it attempts to run 4 collatz units at the same time although only 2 of them show any progress. Suspending collatz it runs 4 milkyway units at the same time with 25% cpu each. This is a dual core processor. Single core radeon 4670.

Where is cc_config.xml stored I can't find it in the boinc folder or the data folder. I am running 6.10. Everthing else just sits Ready to start.

Can anyone explain how to get collatz GPU to run along with CPU work from another project.

I have the ATI GPU app running using the opti app and app_info file, but nothing runs on the CPU at the same time.

Any help would be appreciated

I copied the files from the 32bit ati app into the boinc data folder for the project, but when I start up boinc it doesn't give the using anonymous platform message like it does for other projects. Then it downloads cpu work units.

Any ideas as to why it is doing this.
