Message 9816 - Posted: 15 May 2009 | 21:23:10 UTC

I don't receive any new WU due the following error message(s) :

15/05/2009 23:09:12 GPUGRID Requesting new tasks
15/05/2009 23:09:17 GPUGRID Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
15/05/2009 23:09:17 GPUGRID Message from server: No work sent
15/05/2009 23:09:17 GPUGRID Message from server: Full-atom molecular dynamics on Cell processor is not available for your type of computer.

For one or the other bizarre reason, the server thinks My computer is a PS3 ?

During BOINC initiation, I get the following messages :

GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU @ 2.40GHz [x86 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 7]
Processor features: fpu tsc pae nx sse sse2 mmx
OS: Microsoft Windows XP: Professional x86 Edition, Service Pack 3, (05.01.2600.00)
Memory: 2.00 GB physical, 3.85 GB virtual
Disk: 465.76 GB total, 71.29 GB free
Local time is UTC +2 hours
CUDA device: GeForce 8800 GT (driver version 18585, compute capability 1.1, 512MB, est. 73GFLOPS)

Computer ID: 28542

What's going on here ?

Upgraded Boinc, Display and Cuda drivers to the latest and greatest to resolve never ending WU issues. Partially works; they do error out from time to time ...

Crunched for about 2 months without any problems (apart from the easter server crash)till last week...

Message 9819 - Posted: 15 May 2009 | 21:31:16 UTC - in response to Message 9816.

After a reboot and 2 or three failed request, I received a WU.

So problems are solved, but I am a bit puzzled (that's not that hard...) about the error messages...

It think it's still the standard message when no GPU-WUs are available but the server still has PS3-Grid WUs. However, this message has also been sent out in other cases of errors.

All the GPUGRID WU's I download fail as follows, no issues until a few days ago.

Any ideas?

He's running driver 182.50, according to http://www.gpugrid.net/hosts_user.php?userid=21516.

Clue?

Now that's a clue! The new on the homepage from July 25th says "The driver required will be at least 185.xx, that is required for CUDA2.2. If 190.xx works for you, you can also install it.", but is not visible any more. Maybe the current "July 31, 2009 | We have updated the Windows application (version 6.67) to cuda2.2" should state a bit more explicitely that driver >= 185 is required now?

Thanks for the pointers.

I had tried a machine restart without any joy. I did not know (or missed) the info about the drivers for CUDA. I will update those this evening when I return from work. Strange though that a driver error should log errors about missing output files.

That's not the error message (which can be found if you click the individual tasks under "your account" on the homepage). The "output file absent" just tells you that BOINC didn't find a proper result file to send back to the server. Which is quite logical, if there was an error and no actual computation happened.

The CUDA2.3 app will potentially fix this issue? I've had most or all of the TONI_HERG WU's error out and a lot of the GIANNA_DOP ones. I just upgraded to 6.6.36 and have 190.38 drivers. I'd love it if the CUDA2.3 app solved that problem. I'll keep an eye on it.

GIANNI_DOP and TONI_HERG errors

Think this WU might be bad?

And another: Bad WU

I've had issues on specific types of WU's that have issues on non-200 series cards. Trouble WU's Quite a few of these WU's had issues on other computers, not just mine. And in most cases the issues were centered around "slower" non-200 series cards, but subsequently finished by a 200-series.

I've let it go for a while, but I might have to be proactive and manually cancel the bad types for my system.

Not so with the one listed, it's failed on every card including 4 of the 200-series.

Yeah. That WU you got seems to be really nasty. It's a GIANNI_BIND type that I've occasionally had issues with as well.

But not as much as the GIANNI_DOP AND "HERG" ones. I've seen some WU's that have failed on mine (and other non-200 series) and finished fine on the 200-series. I can't guess as to why, but it just seems unusual to see a pattern like this across different machines. Maybe nothing to it, but it would be nice to know if I just can't expect certain WU's to crunch to completion. I could abort them early to let a 200-series finish them sooner (or ideally not receive those type at all).

Maybe overclocking.

Could be. Maybe I'll try lowering it to stock and run it for a while. Had them OC'd the same way for 8 months. Are those specific WU types more susceptible to OC issues?
