there are no available jobs. Generally there are no jobs. There is no short or long for the GPU. It's in my computer a problem with getting jobs or something with the project?

It's the project. Take a look at the server status page (top right corner).
The current simulations reached their final steps (workunits generated from finished tasks here at GPUGrid), so there's only very scarce work available for a while until the staff will release new simulations.

About a month ago, we had a bunch of WUs (SDOERR_CASP22S) posted, then canceled, but never re-released. I wonder what happened to them?

I still have 5 ghost units, on one of my computers from that time.

The CASP ones are the equivalent of the current ADRIA_FOLD ones. We will look this week at the results from the short queue and decide what to send out so we might send a bigger batch again.

May I repeat my previous proposal ... if we cannot increase the number of studies for using GPUGRID to capacity, why don't we aim at larger and more sophisticated molecules?

I seem to recal a F@H posting where the scientists stated that truly thrilling investigations stand and fall with crunching power and it was hardly possible to derive something valuable before the 2010s because of lacking speed. The hardware was simply not fast enough to handle larger proteins.

Well, here we have a supercomputer now stuffed with all kinds of Kepler, Maxwell and Pascal GPUs running idle... and craving for big data.

Perhaps they could shorten the length of the WUs, I say this even as a fast card owner. The work just isn't being done efficiently and with more WUs more people could have a chance to contribute in parallel rather than waiting for a gt640 to finish a BNBS2.

The new ADRIA_FAAH_WT_ Long WUs only run about 75% on my 970 on windows 10. The Bus interface load is less than BNBS2 and Pablo's adaptive goal. Not sure if you guys can improve this. Haven't gotten one of these new ones on my windows XP 64bit 980ti yet so I can't say if WDDM has much difference.

Supposedly it makes some difference, but not to the full extent (i.e. the difference between 75% and full load).

Thank you! I will wait for the emergence of new jobs. It is a pity that the job ended now, because now in my region the coldest time. In the summer, for the northern hemisphere it is unlikely that I will take on the GPU.

I certainly would appreciate being able to get more than one long run and one short run every 3-5 days. I bought a new GPU specifically so that this project would no longer take nearly the deadline time to process one long run WU, now that I can do a long run in about 7 hours, having no GPU work for the same amount of time my old system used to crunch one WU isn't something I appreciate. :(

Einstein is getting a lot of Priority-Zero work from me with the new GPU though. I just wish there were more GPU projects for bio/medical sciences... or more consistently available WU's here!

6th day in a row none of my computers have gotten a single WU, despite manually updating when the new WUs were released. The event log never said too many updates, it just spit out the normal 0 new tasks sent.

It might have something to do with the fact that all of them are doing Einstein both CPU and GPU just trying to keep my house warm and perhaps because of this they don't ask for GPUGrid work as often, is there anyway I can change this?

PappaLitto - Set your GPUGRID Resource share to the maximum of 99,999. That will give this project the highest possible priority in BOINC.

If you have other GPU projects you want to run while waiting for GPUGRID work set the Resource shares lower. I have Milkyway set to 500, Einstein set to 100 and Seti set to 0. The same is also true for CPU projects but they are two separate groups of work so the relative priority is split between CPU and GPU groups.

Also set your work queue low so it doesn't download lots of work from other projects that would stack up and excessively delay starting a GPUGRID work unit when one comes in. Mine is set at .05 days work and .05 additional. That gives a little buffer but not more than 2.4 hours total.

Folding is another option however it is completely separate from BOINC. It is possible to run them both on the same computer and have the folding application run on the GPU only and use BOINC for the CPU only projects. I have a major investment in BOINC so I decided to stick with that.

I was referring to my time investment with setting up systems running BOINC, configuring and optimizing them. I also am using BoincStats to monitor and control these systems. Another consideration is I am participating in the Gridcoin group and I didn't see a way to use folding@home with the same setup.

I think it's extremely silly that folding@home doesn't also put themselves on BOINC. The entire reason I use BOINC is the ability to have backup projects and Gridcoin. Folding could significantly increase their FLOPS if they supported BOINC.

I remember that some time ago I have read somehwere (most likely on the folding@home HP) that despite all efforts taken, for some technical reasons it did not work out, as much as the FH people would have liked FH to be running under BOINC.

Really too bad.

It is because Folding needs lower latency. That is, the output of one completed work unit is needed to start work on the next in the series. So they can't take the long buffer times in BOINC. That is why the Folding client starts downloading a new work unit when the present one reaches 99% complete.

I don't quite know why BOINC couldn't do that with a little tweaking though, but I don't think anyone has looked into it for several years. BOINC actually has some advantages; it is able to report more information to the server on the driver you are using, for example, and a lot of other information about your hardware. Also, BOINC detects your GPU cards properly, and allows you some degree of individual control. That has been a never-ending headache with Folding, though they are attempting to fix it now with their new client, currently in Beta. We will see.

This project needs lower latency as well in order to provide a more contiguos flow of work.
I proposed a similar strategy in this post but while I was hopeful in its implementation that hope is now evaporating.

It's up to the BOINC developers, or this project should be outside of BOINC just like folding@home. It would be sufficient to have different queue length in BOINC for different projects to achieve this behavior. This queue length even could be set to a fixed amount by the project itself.
But it's possible even now to achieve this behavior, if you set a low queue length (0.01 days = 14 minutes 24 seconds), and make the BOINC manager to estimate the remaining time on the progress of the workunit. (As this project does not set correct values for the <rsc_fpop_est> field in a workunit's properties.)

Because of the lack of work, I have put all of my processors on folding@home. I let BOINC run with network activity on always in the background and manually shut off folding when it eventually downloads a GPUGrid WU.

- If your GPUs already have enough work to meet your setting for "Store at least X days of work", then it won't get more.
- If GPUGrid is not the next project in line to receive work, according to your Recent Estimated Credit (REC), then it won't get any.
- If you'd like to figure out the real problem, turn on Options > Event Log Options... > Work Fetch Debug, and then read through the Event Log to see WHY you weren't given work, and try to step through that logic by looking at the log.
- If you need help, post one iteration of that work fetch debug logic where you thought it was suspicious, and someone here might help you further.
