Was there ever any progress made in getting this to run on each GPU in multi-GPU systems? Sorry if I missed a post about it.

After checking with other projects I will increase the credits for all new batches by a factor of 3.3


Awesome! Thank you!

There will be a new batch 77-78bit needed by GIMPs:
- runtime 16,5h (@RX5500 XT)
- 49500 credits
- deadline 8d (+1d grace_period)
- 10k WUs


16+ hours per WU? If that is correct, you're going to have to give more than 49,500 points per WU. Not worth running it at those rates, unless someone just loves this project.

On one of my systems I have a HD7950 (Dev 0) and a Vega 64 (Dev 1). If I include the following in the options section of my cc_config.xml file:

<exclude_gpu> <url>http://srbase.my-firewall.org/sr5/</url> <type>ATI</type> <device_num>0</device_num> <app>GPU72</app> </exclude_gpu>


That should tell it to ignore my 7950 (Dev 0) and run on my Vega 64. However, that is not the case. It still runs on the 2st device no matter what. The status column in BOINC manager says it's running on Device 1 like the cc_config.xml tells it to, but according to GPU utilization in both GPU-Z and HWiNFO it is still running on 1st device.

EDIT: So by default nature of the app, it will always use the 1st device no matter what it is told in cc_config or app_config it seems? At least on AMD GPUs. NVIDIA is a different story I think?


I'm successfully using this in my cc_config to exclude the second GPU in all of my two-GPU systems, so that one doesn't go to waste when running GPU72. I am running another project on the second GPU in those rigs.

part 1/2

- n=100-150k / 150-200k (2)
- runtime 7min-34min (AVX @4GHz)
- 100-125k = 35 credits
- 125-150k = 67 credits
- 150-175k = 96 credits
- 175-200k = 150 credits
- deadline 10 hours


Why are the deadlines so short? It makes every WU high priority when they run on my machines, preempting other work. Please make longer deadlines, or I will have to drop out of supporting this project.


I need the results back as fast as possible. Iam running 2 projects at the same time and I cant see any high priority with BOINC 7.4.36.


I understand. I just run quite a few projects and having brand new SRBase WU's constantly preempting WU's from other projects is frustrating. Not a deal breaker, though, as I do love these mathematics projects.

Thanks for the tip on BOINC 7.4.36. I will DL that now and see if it improves the preemptions. I am currently running 7.4.27.
