1) Message boards : Number crunching : 2011 Challenge Series (Message 32186)
Posted 3151 days ago by Fire$torm [BlackOps]
Question: Have the powers that be completed the tentative schedule for this years challenge series?

I cannot find any reference to a schedule anywhere on the forum.

Thanks in advance,

2) Message boards : Sieving : Help needed with CUDA CPU Load Issue (Message 25880)
Posted 3315 days ago by Fire$torm [BlackOps]
Update:

OK, here is what worked for me

<app_info> <app> <name>pps_sr2sieve</name> <user_friendly_name>PPS-Sieve (CUDA)</user_friendly_name> </app> <file_info> <name>primegrid_ppsieve_1.27_windows_intelx86__cuda23.exe</name> <executable/> </file_info> <file_info> <name>cudart.dll</name> </file_info> <app_version> <app_name>pps_sr2sieve</app_name> <version_num>127</version_num> <file_ref> <file_name>primegrid_ppsieve_1.27_windows_intelx86__cuda23.exe</file_name> <main_program/> </file_ref> <file_ref> <file_name>cudart.dll</file_name> <open_name>cudart.dll</open_name> </file_ref> <plan_class>cuda23</plan_class> <avg_ncpus>0.040000</avg_ncpus> <max_ncpus>0.040000</max_ncpus> <coproc> <type>CUDA</type> <count>1.000000</count> </coproc> </app_version> </app_info>


There are two things to keep in mind....

1) This setup will only run the GPU app. I tried adding code for the CPU app but could not get both to run concurrently.

2) There is an issue/bug with PG. If primegrid_ppsieve_1.27_windows_intelx86__cuda23.exe and/or cudart.dll do not already exist in the project folder BOINC reports a URL error when trying to download them from primegrid.

Also if you are running BOINC on Linux then all references in the app_info.xml to cudart.dll must be replaced with libcudart.so and primegrid_ppsieve_1.27_windows_intelx86__cuda23.exe replaced with your Linux executable.

Thanks again for the help.

Sincerely,
Fire$torm

Thanks guys for the responses. Much appreciated. I prefer the app_info route but will keep the config file in mind. If/when I get the former working I will post and share. :)

Peace.
4) Message boards : Sieving : Help needed with CUDA CPU Load Issue (Message 25858)
Posted 3316 days ago by Fire$torm [BlackOps]
My System:
CPU: Intel P4 Prescott (LGA 775, Stepping: A, Revision: R0) @3.0Ghz
MB: ASRock 775xFire-RAID
RAM: 1GB DDR2-400
Video (2x) nVidia 8800 GT w/512MB GDDR3 OC'd 705/1757/975
OS: WinXP Pro x64
Uses: BOINC, FTP Server & Multimedia File Server

The Issue:
Today I started the CUDA app for PPSieve and noticed that each wu requires (0.77 CPU + 1.00 GPU). Is it possible to reduce the CPU load via an app_info.xml file?
I have no idea how to set one up from scratch.
Please help.

Thanks in advance,
Fire$torm

Hello,
On one of the three systems that I recently started running BOINC on, I keep getting a series of messages in the log viewer concerning lost results as listed below.

I have included the other info to help answer some of the possible system questions that might come up.

My question: How do I correct/fix this problem?

Thanks in advance Fire$torm.
