Message 43186 - Posted: 13 Apr 2016 | 1:48:36 UTC
Last modified: 13 Apr 2016 | 1:49:18 UTC

Hi, I'm currently using 3 Titan Black to do crunching.
In order to maximize the performance, I added the app_config.xml file to let GPUGrid run 2 tasks on each GPU simultaneously.
At first it seems to be working well, but after finishing the first 6 tasks, Bonic does not send me any new tasks to me.
I have no idea what's going on. Before I added the app_config.xml, everything goes well, so I'm wondering whether I have made any mistakes? Could someone help me on this? My event log and app_config.xlm contents are attached below.
Thank you very much!

The error is on the project's end, as there's not enough workunits queued at the moment to fulfill every request.
(see server message marked in red).
It seems that GPUGrid's resource share is set to 0 in your preferences (see the messages marked with dark red), so the client will request work only when it has run out of work of every projects with above zero priority. Setting zero resource share is a common practice for backup projects. It's nice to have a backup project for the times when the main project has run out of work.

There's no need to have the acemdlong application definition six times in the app_config.xml file:

<app_config> <app> <name>acemdlong</name> <max_concurrent>9999</max_concurrent> <gpu_versions> <gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage> <cpu_usage>1.00</cpu_usage> </gpu_versions> </app> </app_config>

Message 43188 - Posted: 13 Apr 2016 | 13:00:27 UTC - in response to Message 43187.

Thanks for point out my issue!
However, 7-8 hours has passed and I'm still not getting new tasks unfortunately. :( Is it normal?
I see users with high recent average are running tasks all the time, is there any tricks to keep GPU Grid always running?
For resource share, I believe that I've set it to 100, the same as the only other project I'm running -- World Community Grid(however, there're only CPU tasks for World Community Grid, so I believe the GPU Grid is my only project for my GPUs). No idea why it says 0, do you know how I can fix it?

The event log for today after I restarted my computer is as follow:

2016-04-13 8:55:12 AM | GPUGRID | URL http://www.gpugrid.net/; Computer ID 316193; resource share 100

Your GPUGrid resource share is ok (100). The previous share value was 0 because the GPUGrid project was in backoff state.
Now there is work in the queue, so your host received 6 workunits, which is the maximum (2 per GPU) no matter if you've set a longer queue.

Just to make sure that nothing is wrong with my system: I have not got new tasks since yesterday (April 13) late afternoon.
Is same thing true with other crunchers?

No WUs available: see 'Server status'

this is nothing new though. Most of the time, you can see "0" unter "unsent", although tasks are being downloaded on a regular basis.

It appears the queue of new tasks is empty. I show a task completed 22:04:36 UTC.

You can check the number of workunits by clicking on the "Server status" at the top right corner. The project's queues are low on workunits at the moment (e.g. there are more crunchers / hosts than workunits). There are 800-some workunits in progress, some of them will result in a new workunit, but when this number is below ~2000 (~the number of active hosts doubled) then there's a very low possibility to get new task. You should be patient while the queues are filled up with new work, or set up a backup project (by setting 0 resource share in your profile at the given project).

I still get tasks some times. Some of the tasks generate new ones right?

what we need to be aware of is that while in the past year there were quite a number of researchers active at GPUGRID, since around beginning of 2016 there is only one left: Gerard.
And of course, just one person is bound to be unable to fill the WU queue 24 hours a day.
As we all make the experience, many times it is impossible for several hours, or even up to a day or longer (like recently) to get new tasks - which is a pitty, but that's the way it is for the time being.
From what I have read somewhere in the BOINC forum the other day, this situation might remain unchanged at least until end of summer, if not beyond :-(
