Slicker,
Thanks for listening to your volunteers, and adjusting the projects accordingly. I've added Large wu's to my accept list, and look forward to letting my gpu's crunch away without hogging your bandwith. Thanks again, Rick

I got my first large WU for my Intel-GPU. 19 minutes for 0.2% ==> it will be running about 6,6 days with a Deadline of 7 days. I stop it, because the deadline give not enough time to safely complete this unit.


Slicker,
Has anyone completed a large wu on an intelgpu? Based on my results so far, the deadline is too tight to complete, forcing me to not accept large wu's even though the dual gtx690's on the same machines are EAGER to crunch large wu's. PLEASE either abandon creation of large wu's for intelgpu, or give us more time to crunch them. Also, PLEASE let us know what you've done about this via BOINC Notices, so we don't have to search all the forums to see if/when you've responded. Thanks in advance for your prompt attention to this issue, Rick

Slicker,
I have 6 desktops dedicated 100% to BOINC. All have at least 3 gpu cores, most with at least one gtx690. Three also have the intelgpu. These all run 24/7. The runtime I quoted was actual wu runtime displayed in BOINC. I understand the difference between gpu speeds, it's just the intelgpus are so much slower than the additional gpu's most people have in their desktops. Regards, Rick

One additional note about the size and runtime of large wu's, a large wu was just running on a gtx590, and with 38hrs of run time, only 68% has been completed. Don't understand how you would expect a large wu to complete on an intelgpu in one day. Regards, Rick

Slicker,
I would love to be running the large wu's, but when BOINC assigns one to my intelgpus, the due date is too short to get it processed. When assigns one to one of my GTX690, 660Ti, or 590's cores it should be alright, but I really want to utilize my intelgpu for Collatz too. Please consider giving the large wu's more time. Thanks in advance for your consideration of my request, Col. Rick A. Sponholz


7 days is plenty of time to get them done as they will finish in under a day. The problem is that BOINC is just too frakking stupid to get the estimates correct as they are based on floating math and Collatz only uses integer math. So, no matter what I set the estimate to be, it is wrong because the ratio of flops to iops is different on different devices. In other words, it is using apples per day to measure oranges per day with its overly complicated algorithm that takes several WUs before it fingures out it is stupid and corrects itself. The K.I.S.S. method would have the correct estimate in under 5 seconds, but you don't get NSF grants for K.I.S.S. type of logic. ;-)


Maybe large wu's should run in one day on an intel gpu, but mine only completed ~ 7% after < 30 hrs.
