Topic 197378

One of my machine is having a mix of ATI+CUDA+Intel_GPU.
(R9-280X, GTX670, 4770K).

Crunching GPU-only BRP5(Perseus); but I wanted to run 3xATI and 2xCUDA.

This isn't possible via standard Preference/Profile & app_config.xml - as that one setting is for all GPU.

So I'm using app_info.xml.

Crunch ATI+CUDA+Intel_GPU well when first transitioned to app_info.xml (existing workunits).
= No problem with app_info.xml.

But since then I can get ATI & Intel_GPU work, but _not_ CUDA workunits.

Here's the latest scheduler log.

Is there something wrong with server-side settings?

Thanks in advance.

Anonymous Platform, server-side settings problem?

Hi!

It would be best to see your app_info.xml file to check if there's anything wrong with that.

Better still, you might want to check the section about app_config.xml files here : http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Client_configuration, because I think this is better suited than app_info.xml for what you have in mind.

Cheers
HBE

Thanks Bikeman. I'd reset

Thanks Bikeman.

I'd reset the project to clear off unwanted files and switched to app_config.xml.

I missed the tag. :)

It's working now.

EDIT: Work units are downloading but is only supported in BOINC 7.3+ (not available yet). So I'm out of luck. Will run x2 on each GPU.

It's still strange why server will skip CUDA plan-class when not requesting CPU work, yes?

If you feel adventurous you can always download all the Alpha, Beta and release versions of Boinc here http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/?C=M;O=D

Version 7.2.39 and an APP file is very helpful in making the newer R series of AMD gpu's work everywhere.

I wouldn't believe that, it was implemented in Boinc 7.2.30, and should be in every dev version afterwards (But not the recommended releases):

Preliminary Change Log 7.2.29 --> 7.2.30:

client: allow elements in app_config.xml, allowing users to override the parameters of particular app versions.

app_config.xml:

app_config.xml:



einsteinbinary_BRP5
BRP5-opencl-ati
0.1
0.33


einsteinbinary_BRP5
BRP5-cuda32-nv301
0.1
0.5

Claggy is correct.
Boinc-client recommended version 7.2.33(x64); did not work.

Boinc-client version 7.2.39(x64) (get it here, works.

Presently running 3x ATI, 2x CUDA.

Thanks guys! :)

Boinc 7.2.39 has now become the latest recommended Boinc version, you can get it straight from Berkeley's Boinc download page now.
