Is it “stuck” or is it just running very slow?

These tasks are pretty long running. And a 1060 isn’t very powerful. I can believe it would take a couple days to complete. Check back in a few hours to see if the percentage increased a bit.

I had one like that this morning: WU 27081359

The key factor was that it was using zero CPU resources - zero CPU time for the run as a whole, zero CPU time since last checkpoint. I paused and restarted it, but no better. So I aborted it.

8 hours later the Percentage and Time Run and Time remaining are all the same.

The GPU is pretty old and slow but it has been very successful on GPUGRID ACEMD tasks in the past.

Suspending and resuming did not affect it.

Unless someone has a better suggestion I will Abort it later tonight.

Thanks

Is the GPU actually working? Can you see the utilization percentage? What about the CPU support percentage?

Here is a copy of the Task properties with the Task in Running Status

It looks like there is no GPU activity or CPU activity

I mean use a program like GPUz or HWinfo to report the utilization percentage. Checking the running temperature can be another indication of if it’s doing anything.

I can see nothing that indicates that any work is happening even thought the Task says Running.

Message 57500 - Posted: 6 Oct 2021 | 13:48:29 UTC

UPDATE and resolution for the moment. I found that if I suspend all BOINC activity and exit BOINC after waiting about 45 seconds to allow any late process writing to be completed that after restarting the BOINC client the GPUGRID task resumed computation. Due to the lost days it will not make deadline but I will allow it to complete to validate my GPU and other hardware. Total run time expected to be 2 days 2 hours on a NVDIA 1060.

Thanks for your help and assistance.
