Does this also affect BRP4

Does this also affect BRP4 for Intel GPUs?

Not yet. However when we find we get short on BRP4 work for our Android devices, we will turn off delivering these to Intel GPUs.

We got a few (~100) new beams

We got a few (~100) new beams from Arecibo for BRP4G, currently being pre-processed for E@H. Will last for 3-4d only, though.

On a machine with an NVIDIA

On a machine with an NVIDIA GPU that has been running the BRP6 betas, I suddenly received two Arecibo units. I have been receiving them for an Intel HD2500, but not NVIDIA. My understanding it was due to less work being available for lesser chips like the Intels. Did more data come in?

A quick look at the server

A quick look at the server status page shows that there are tasks to send for BRP4G. It seems like you are right and there is new data available.

Hello. 

 

I have a simple question. I was looking on the server status page and I saw that there are very few remaining task for BRP4.

I may have misunderstood something...

Does it mean that both my raspberry pi (ARM) and my android devices won't be able to process any tasks anymore?

This thread (in Technical

This thread (in Technical News) is nearly 4 years old and was last posted to more than 2 years ago.  The content is unlikely to be relevant to the current situation.  You should really post any current question in a more appropriate help forum.

I'm not aware of any changes to the status of BRP4.  There are currently 9,123 tasks ready to send which would be a pretty normal figure.  When those are sent out, the workunit generator should fire up and create some more.  I would think there would be an official announcement if the current arrangements with BRP4 were going to change any time soon.

 

Cheers,
Gary.

There's still plenty of work

There's still plenty of work remaining to continue running BRP4 for another year or so, and we try our best to keep it that way.

Just one?  Are you planning on starting up the BRP4 GPU app again, because at current rates the server status page suggests almost 20 years of work is available in the system.

I've started to get a lot of errors on BRP4 tasks  along with other crunchers.

Guess we are trying to process a "bad" beam.

Can somebody from DEV cancel problematic beam?
