Message 48933 - Posted: 14 Feb 2018 | 4:29:19 UTC

Here is my rig and config. The GPUGrid homepage says it has work available so why isn't it sending it? Any ideas?
AdvTHANKSance,
Michael

That is typical of this project. There is not enough tasks to go around.

Do not look at "Tasks ready to send 7,577" look at "Long runs (8-12 hours on fastest card) Unsent: 0 in progress: 1,312"

These are the GPU work units. The first number, 7,577 is the total of work units ready to send, CPU and GPU combined. Below this is the important information to determine how much of what type is available.

Thank you both for clarifying the situation. I suppose I will not be adding addition GPU's to the two I already have. I shall invest instead in a fast multi-core machine.

It's always good to have a backup project set to receive work with a 0% resource share. It's basically a must when running GPUGrid due to not having steady work to keep all GPUs busy at all times. I run E@H atm when there are no GPUGrid tasks available. Same goes for CPU projects.
