Hello!


I have 3 machines with suitable GPUs http://www.gpugrid.net/hosts_user.php?userid=103977 and none get any jobs.

When GPUGrid's Server Status says that there are no Unsent tasks of a given Application, that means that the scientists have no work available for that Application. At the top right of any page, click Server Status.
https://www.gpugrid.net/server_status.php

Also, if you want to see what platforms a given app is available for, then check the Apps page, here:
http://www.gpugrid.net/apps.php

Sometimes, our CPU and GPU resources will have to work on work from other projects.

It's really that simple.

Those are CPU tasks, not GPU. There is not much GPU work right now. That happens sometimes.

All that crying everytime there are no GPU tasks: in that case just donate your GPU power to another project, e.g. Folding@Home or something else useful.

Are you sure it working "CPU task" ?

My computer is avaible for CPU task too and dont reveice task from GPUgrid.

Same here. No tasks. Would love to help you boys out by getting more jobs to run.

That's just the nature of this project, sometimes. They send work in batches at a time, so the well runs dry every now and then. I would recommend a back up GPU project. I use Milkyway@home. Just set the project preferences to 0% resource share and it will only give WU's when GPUGRID is not.

I only crunch GPU so I can't say it's working. I can say that number of tasks is for the Quantum Chemistry or QC work, and it's for CPU.

Make sure you've enabled Quantum Chemistry in your preferences. You will also need a lot of available disk space. I think at least 57 GB.

This project has a CPU setting in 2 places. Make sure the top one is checked.

CPU tasks are Linux only at the moment. The Quantum Chemistry Windows app is in beta test only, but its queue is empty.

Besides that it has had a very hight failure rate so far (which probably is the nature of beta, anyway).

Folding@Home it's note for BOINC and BAM. Rosetta@Home don't have GPU jobs. Any other idea?

I would recommend Einstein@Home.
There is a chance for you to discover an unknown pulsar by analysing radio signals coming from space...
I keep on trying :-)

Use Folding without BAM. Just install its software.
I use it on my GPUs on all my machines (both Windows and Linux), while running all the CPUs with BOINC.

Milkyway or Einstein, but neither are biomed. Just install F@H with it's normal software. It is pretty decent.
