3) Message boards : Number crunching : Stats exports don't works (Message 4157)
Posted 2971 days ago by Profile Logan
It wasn't fixed. I made the mistake of starting the daemons while logged on as root one time. Doh! Every time the stats ran, it tried to overwrite the temp file that root owned. That was a bit of a bugger to find as the debug mode didn't give any more info other than "another copy is already running" type of message. Anyway, it is running correctly now.


Thanks Slicker!!!

I didn't said nothing today waiting what happens...:)

All is updated now, my friend!!!
4) Message boards : Number crunching : Run time? (Message 4150)
Posted 2971 days ago by Profile Logan
My slowest card (9500 GT PCI) takes 2.6 hours, and my fastest (4870) takes .3 hours. That means a LOT of tasks queued for my faster card. And many tasks makes BOINC manager unresponsive. This will only get worse with the 5xxx cards coming out now. So my question is can the run times be doubled or tripled? 8 hours is not excessive for a really slow card.

Now, I know I am not taking into account the CPU run times here, so maybe 3x run times would cause a problem there. But I figure, if one is using a slow CPU, they should expect long run times. And that shouldn't be a concern anyway, since there is checkpointing (I assume).


Reduce your cache...;)
5) Message boards : Number crunching : The "I Want To User Another GPU" Question (Message 4124)
Posted 2971 days ago by Profile Logan
Two ATI 4890 cards.

1. How can I use both gpus for computing?

2. How can I choose just the second 4890 card for computing?

I don't have a monitor attached to the second card.


I don't remember where is the link, but you must to lie to the other card with a dummy connector as he thinks that has a monitor attached... let me search... ;)

You are DA MAN!!!!! I'm back up and running. Thank you very much. Now just one other little question. :)

I was looking at my credit stuff and I noticed claimed credit versus granted credit was WAY different. Is this normal? Or will it start to even out after a while as the project and my computer adjust to each other?


Yes. It's normal.

'Claimed' is based in CPU time (not GPU time), CPU benchmarks and a lot of other factors that changes between projects and the way how are credited...

Don't worry about... ;)

The way is in 'your account', 'Collatz Conjecture preferences', 'Should Collatz Conjecture show your computers on its web site?', set it to 'yes' and update.

If you had problems updating divers, my suggestion is uninstall all drivers and related to ATI, reboot your machine, reinstall drivers, reboot again, and try to get work... ;)

I can't seem to get Collatz to recognize that I HAVE installed catalyst. Below are the log messages i get from Boinc regarding Collatz.

11/30/2009 8:05:22 AM Collatz Conjecture Requesting new tasks for GPU
11/30/2009 8:05:27 AM Collatz Conjecture Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
11/30/2009 8:05:27 AM Collatz Conjecture Message from server: No work sent
11/30/2009 8:05:27 AM Collatz Conjecture Message from server: Your computer has no NVIDIA GPU
11/30/2009 8:05:27 AM Collatz Conjecture Message from server: ATI Catalyst 8.12+ needed to use GPU
11/30/2009 8:05:27 AM Collatz Conjecture Message from server: ATI Catalyst 9.1+ needed to use GPU


I was having trouble getting the catalyst drivers installed so I had to reset collatz a time or 2 and a bunch of work units got deleted. But now I can't d/l any new work units.

My system is here:
http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/hosts_user.php

Any help would be appreciated.


That link only works for you.

And your computers are hidden...

Nobody can see nothing... :)

Yep. Permissions problem. I think I have it fixed now.

Hi Slicker!!!

It seems that the stats exports don't works.


Best regards.

Posted 2978 days ago by Profile Logan

I don't now why all that discussion...

I'm sure that, if we suggest to Slicker, he can find a way to grant you only 1/10 of the credits earned. Only for you, and your team members...

Sure, then, you will be happy, and the most popular between your teammates during months... :D

;-)


Now seriously, I think that this is the only way to cut off that kind of people... Slicker, please, considerate it as a real suggestion...

This project could be the first that puts that people in his place...

Posted 2979 days ago by Profile Logan
Sorry Logan... I'm here on behalf of myself and not asking on behalf of my team.

Again I was just asking... nothing more nothing less.

;-)


And, mine, it's only a suggestion for make you happy...

;-)
14) Message boards : Number crunching : Credit (Message 3830)
Posted 2979 days ago by Profile Logan
I know how this works regarding a CPU... again I wasn't asking because I saw a huge amount given to my CPU.

That's why my question was about the credits given to the GPU's used here.
It's the connection made for granted credit given to GPU's based on a CPU benchmark that made me wonder... and ask.

To me it's kinda like comparing an apple with an orange.

Hence why I think some adjustment might be needed.

;-)

Hi licker!

I think now it's not the same case that the previous ones...

Now, the transitioner backlog is 7 hours http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/server_status.php and all of us are in the same case with a lot of WUs.

Please, wait to the transitioner backlog will be 0 and the 'Workunits waiting for validation' too (or near to 0), then, if the results are not credited, report them again.

Thanks in advance.

Well...

Please, be pattient.

Sure, Slicker fix all that results ASAP. But that could't be immediatly.


Report what you find, (and check it before).


Please, give a breath him... And don't worry, all will be fixed, but give a time to the best of admins that we had in all projects...

Its inconclusiv and needs a 3rd result to check, which one is right. nothing wrong there


It's not inconclusive... the other dude is still using 2.05b and you all know what that means...




Can we send him something like a "THOR's HAMMER" to his head, to know if he is alive...? :D :D :D :D

Well... I think anyway he can't survive.... ;)
18) Message boards : Number crunching : WU not validating? (Message 3586)
Posted 2990 days ago by Profile Logan
Well...

As Slicker said, you must only report results that have a quourm of 2, without errors, and are pending and not validated.

As Sailor said, "inconclusive" are not available for that... That are 'real pendings'

Please, don't do Slicker's work more heaviest than it is...

Check the things before complain... please...

Yep, MW will be down for some days and gpugrid doing some ati 4850+ testing.

Don't forget SETI ;)


I forgot SETI 4 Years ago ... :P


SET What...? :P


as for YETI i got another idea about a new credit system: credits granted for SOMETHING found. <roflmao>


...Or something searched...:D :D :D :D

How many LGM have they found lately? :p


Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence...

How the people (I'm referring to concrete people those that are at the main of the project) can find that thing that they don't knows what is it...? (I'm referring to the last "I" from the acronym...)

If we can't found here... How we expect to recognize it out there...? :D :D :D :D
