If your CPU and MB support it, then enable ECO Mode to reduce power/heat. You'll most likely get a boost in performance since it won't be thermal throttling anymore either.

Yes, I know about the device 0 only issue. Like I said, I was able to get around that issue and use both GPUs many times before since this app came out.

I'll just figure it out myself as usual.

I'm getting that "absent file" error on some WUs and they end up throwing Computation Error.

Haven't ran this in a while, but same setup that used to work well months ago now has these errors...

10/25/2022 4:11:25 PM | SRBase | Output file TF_73-74_698-709M_wu_44271_0_0 for task TF_73-74_698-709M_wu_44271_0 absent


The calculation crashed in the middle thats why the output file was rejected


Well, the WUs are throwing the Computation Errors anytime during the calculation. They're all over the place time wise when it happens.

This machine has had no issues in the past running this project. Only thing that change was a driver update, but rolling back to previous NVIDIA driver known to work did not solve it.

Did the recent system crash on your end corrupt anything that would cause this?

This does have dual 1660ti GPUs in it, but if you know what you are doing then you can run WUs on both GPUs. Although if the application was written correctly it would do that by itself without any user input!

Great job keeping the server and work flowing!

Thanks.

On a side note...you have to be one of the best Project Admins in responding to posts (and quickly) on their forums. A lot of Projects have Admins that are MIA and just don't give a shite. So, thank you for that!

In theory this is supposed to keep your credit per day (or points per day) the same no matter the range?

If that is the intention...it doesn't seem to work that way in reality IMO, but maybe I'm wrong.

Windows Version + plan_class are done. Lets see how its working with wrapper from mfakto

Update:

The first wrapper doesnt match with the one in download folder, gave some download errors, fixed in v16

Update2:
Doesnt work, same error, need more testing with wrapper.

Update3:
The v12 cuda app is using an older wrapper, will setup this with v15

Update4:
added min_nvidia_compcap to plan_class_spec because of older cards with latest drivers and toolkit (doesnt work with cuda11.2 app)



Question about the Update4 above in bold...

Is that to mean even cards that have newer drivers and Cuda 11 support can not run the v0.18/cuda112 app?

Trying to figure out if its only for RTX3000 series cards or if last gen cards like 2080ti or 1660ti can run on v0.18/cuda112 or not. If they could is there a performance advantage on cuda112 or not? Thanks!

I'm trying to add a new host and getting a failure error in BOINC. Never even get to the username and password screen.

Is this an issue cause by the recent crash?
