On one pc I can count only one task on one graphics card. I got there but 3. It started all of a sudden few days ago.
I tried to connect ins BOINC project but still see only one job for one card ..
I tried to connect foldinghome and all 3 cards work together without any problems ..
The NVIDIA SLI manager is enabled, all as before ..
I even turned the order of cards in pci-e slot and every one a try ..
I reinstalled Boin manager and the nvidia driver, and even unplugging and replugging GPUGRID project ..
I've created a config file in which I wrote to use all the cards did not help ..
Knows someone explain what happened?
Certainly is a bug in BOINC Manager the damn, because it is not just BOINC projects.
How do I use other cards when it suddenly stopped working?

I've created a config file in which I wrote to use all the cards did not help ..


This works for me for two Nvidia cards:
<cc_config>
<options>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
</options>
</cc_config>


After you copy it to Notepad, be sure to use the "Save As" function to save it as cc_config.xml and place it in your BOINC folder.

I tried and it did, but BOINC completely unresponsive.

Restart the client and disconnect the projects did not help.

Boin clioent you from myself began to assign tasks to only one graphics card!

Has something to do about the slow upload and download tasks on aging GPUGRID server ..?

Interests me as it is possible that by itself without my interference - started the BOINC client to do after months without problems ..?!

Waiting for response ..


How exactly can you explain the sudden stop boinc client assign tasks for graphics cards, by itself starts to assign only one task one card ..?!

Waiting for response ..

So right now I'm in this affair, problems, most educated, more than everyone here .. because you did not know me help!!!

Why BOINC client suddenly started me without my interference after a few weeks no problem run, to address only one task per card to only one card..? Although everything was as before ..

As I explained before, I've tried everything, including the addition of config file ..and it did not help..

If something like this could happen, so it casts a bad light on the whole BOINC project...because nobody knows explain, argue and just wait let's solve the volunteer!!

Because people want to join the voluntary passed with no problems on the part of the designer

Volunteer solve the problem for you ..

The solution was to ---- New Install Windows 8.1 along the clear HDD ..

Now I just to clean windows starts the BOINC client after the above hours downloading one task, the average download speed was 29.20kb/s....lol

ONLY clean installation help reset Boin client so I can finally gets taks in all my 3 graphics cards...

Looks like someone is controlled via the BOINC client's entire PC .. otherwise I can not explain what happened to my pc .. but when I joined otherwise BOINC project also worked only one job on one card, so it was a mistake BOINC Manager

Wow.

If you decide you want to give it another try, and are willing to allow more than a couple hours for a response, I'd like to try to help you. When configured properly, BOINC runs great on all 30 of my attached projects.

Kind regards,
Jacob Klein

Having a large buffer often results in CPU work running but one or more GPU's sitting idle.

Now when I review the situation, what happened. So it was really a mistake on the part of BOINC Manager or project gpugid...

For when on Friday and Saturday the error occurred, did not help any solution. From here offered on the forums or other.

What is interesting is that as soon as I reinstalled windows and installed BOINC Manager, Login, immediately began to address a tasks for all three cards completely flawlessly ..

So something happened on Thursday, probably, but without my intervention.


The problem with this project is the need to constantly check it.
Means constantly, several times a day and still solve problems of the designer ..
Those are my experiences..

Every project needs constant checking and on some you don't get a feedback for several days (if ever).

It also helps to use the latest released version of BOINC (7.2.42), as they are constantly finding problems. There aren't that many systems with three GPUs, and they probably don't get that many problem reports.

As for Folding, it does well if all the cards are identical, but if they differ, (i.e., have a different number of shaders) good luck. I have many years of experience along those lines.

He is running that BUT he is also running the latest version of the Nvidia software, 335.23. I am wondering that could be his problem as Nvidia's software is NOT tweaked for us crunchers as we are way down their list of primary users.
