Questions / Re: Waiting to run ...
« Last post by fred on Today at 12:31:12 pm »
There is not enough memory to run the task.

Check BOINC Settings -> Disk Use at most xx% When computer is in use.

Check the Yoyo project forum, some suggest setting this to 97% or abort a task.
You might want to run too many yoyo tasks at the same time.

Questions / Re: Project Preferences and Recieving GPU Tasks not for my GPU

What you might be able to do is set a venue (in the project website setting) so that certain computers are handled differently on the project side.
Next add the computers to a specific venue, like work or home.

Thanks for the pointer I have all set generic atm.

I was considering say my PC with Home profile and choose a different one for my laptop.

I guess this just moved up my todo list ;)

As it can't throttle the actual GPU it slows down the feeder CPU process.

Thanks Fred, I understand better now :)

I had all GPU options ticked on the Collatz Project preferences and the CPU option was unchecked.
This is a project BOINC client thing.

Wish List / Re: Suspend at Checkpoint: conditionally visible as an option

Yep, but the majority of uses probably don't use this feature and those who need it will find it eventually.
And they can find it here....

Questions / Re: 2 NVidia GPU Cards with different temps have same throttle applied
« Last post by fred on July 17, 2019, 07:30:03 am »
Hi,
I believe my configuration is correct but the same throttle value is applied to both my GPU cards even though the temperatures are different.
It should do that, it gives the running % of each card.
As it can't throttle the actual GPU it slows down the feeder CPU process.

To match the temps you might want to look at overclock to adjust the fan speed with the temperature.

The cards are in close proximity and effect each other as one sucks in the air from the other card.

Questions / 2 NVidia GPU Cards with different temps have same throttle applied
« Last post by archeye on July 17, 2019, 06:42:52 am »
Hi,
I believe my configuration is correct but the same throttle value is applied to both my GPU cards even though the temperatures are different. I was expecting the throttle values to be independent as in TThrottle I identified 2 cards by input of the 2 temperatures and it recognises the workload on both of them separately. See images.

Is there something I missed in the setup? Thanks.

Questions / Project Preferences and Recieving GPU Tasks not for my GPU
« Last post by archeye on July 13, 2019, 08:39:36 am »
Hi,

I had all GPU options ticked on the Collatz Project preferences and the CPU option was unchecked.

I found that my PC correctly received Nvidia GPU tasks "0.998C + 1NV" (only).

On my Laptop I receive AMD GPU tasks "0.971 + 1 AMD/ATI GPU" (correct) and Intel GPU tasks "0.829C + 1INT" (not correct).

Now I have unchecked the Intel GPU tasks option in project preferences so I should not receive the Intel tasks in the future.

I have adjusted some settings in BoincTasks App and also in the Boinc Manager App and put this in the questions thread as I am not sure if I created this situation by adjusting settings or if it may be a bug in the Boinc Manager or BoincTasks App.

One additional piece of info is when on my laptop an Intel GPU task runs as a solo GPU task then the BoincTasks temperature value is permanently ?? and the TThrottle on-screen temperature bar only shows CPU temps.

If it runs together with an AMD GPU task then both GPU tasks have the same GPU temp value and TThrottle on-screen temp bar shows both CPU and GPU temps.

If it helps then from the Computer tab here is my laptop info,



Regards.

Wish List / Suspend at Checkpoint: conditionally visible as an option
« Last post by archeye on July 09, 2019, 04:06:25 pm »
Hi,
out of interest I clicked on BioncTask Settings, Tasks tab, Checkpoint to see what is would show.

Not only did it show the time from the last checkpoint but it also adds an additional option into the "right click when mouse over task" list and then you have the normal "Suspend" but also an additional "Suspend at Checkpoint".

https://efmer.com/boinctasks_settings/#tasks does not describe this ;)

I see no need for more and more detail to be put into the help. This is a very well organised program (TThrottle too) and I like that most aspects are intuitive.

So I was thinking that without changing your design maybe you could always have the "Suspend at Checkpoint" in the Tasks right click list but when the "Checkpoint" column is not selected then this right click list item is just disabled (greyed out).

Users can then always see the option and should be smart enough to work out what is needed to enable it.

I just raise this as it potentially saves already processed data and with a save at checkpoint (in my case checkpoints are set to 60 seconds although I see in real time some go out to nearly 3 minutes) you are able to preserve your progress.

The only reason I see for suspending some WUs is that while I am using the PC  they are either super intensive CPU/GPU users or require TThrottle to ramp up on the throttle factor to maintain my settings for CPU/GPU temperature limits.

These suspended WUs will then be set to resume while I am not directly using my PC.

Cheers.
