Message 42778 - Posted: 9 Feb 2016 | 18:12:01 UTC

Sorry, I realise that there are many of these out there, but I still can not get my PC to pick up tasks. I have set the storage of tasks to 1 day min with 0.5 additional. My log is below:

The last line is odd - what does this mean? Is there more than one project and I'm signed up to a dud?!
Thanks for your help.

Your target work buffer is: Store 1 day of work minimum, and up to 0.5 days additional:

09/02/2016 18:04:36 | | [work_fetch] target work buffer: 86400.00 + 43200.00 sec


Your NVIDIA status shows that your "saturated" value was already above your minimum setting of 1-day. You already had NVIDIA work to do!

09/02/2016 18:05:36 | | [work_fetch] shortfall 78115.12 nidle 0.00 saturated 89447.19 busy 0.00
09/02/2016 18:06:36 | | [work_fetch] shortfall 78447.45 nidle 0.00 saturated 89215.75 busy 0.00


Work fetch correctly decided not to ask projects for work, since no CPU work was needed, and no NVIDIA work was needed.

Hi all,

here something similar on Linux 2.6.32, CUDA 7.5, BOINC 7.2.42 and drivers 352.63.
I cannot understand why I'm not able to get new WUs and who and when had set the daily quota. The server status page reports, now, 331 Long Runs WUs ready to be sent.

Any hint?

You are returning errors for every single task that you download and the server has decided to stop sending you any more for today, please try checking your logs, apparently you are missing a required file ...

../../projects/www.gpugrid.net/acemd.848-65.bin: /lib64/libm.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.15' not found


Once you have this fixed you will need to wait until tomorrow to get a new task but then you should be all set.
____________
Thanks - Steve

As a reminder, you can view your tasks and completion statusus right here on this website, in your account. And, at the bottom, the "stderr.txt" portion describes what happened during the task's execution, including any errors!

I have a GTX 960, haven't received any work for quite some time.

Paul:

"Don't need" typically means that your GPUs are busy working on other projects, and you don't need additional work from the project you are contacting.

If you want additional work fetch details, you'll need to go the Advanced View, find the "Event Log Options", and turn on "work_fetch_debug", and inspect the Event Log for details. It's likely that your GPUs have enough work, and your GPUs are saturated for a time that's larger than your cache settings.

Read through the first 3 posts of this thread, to understand more.

My pcs are not receiving units from several days ago, when I try to download units manually this happens:

I've seen that GPUGRID continues to add credits in BOINCstats so I assume that other users are still receiving units.
Why my pcs not receive units? I have not changed any settings in the last days, everything is as before.

Sorry, the reason you can't new tasks is that there are none. Look on the "Server Status" page for an idea of what I mean. Link on top right.

There will be full amount of WU's in 6 weeks or so until then its crumbs off the table.

The server status page also shows the number of 'tasks in progress' - 360 as I type.

Every time that number goes down, it means somebody has returned a task and (presumably) been awarded credit for it. Additional credit appearing in BOINCstats means that old work is being returned, not that new work is being sent out.

I thank you for the answers, I'll wait for the new tasks.
