We are working on solving the problems with BRP4 work generation. I hope that there will be enough BRP4 tasks (and thus CUDA work) in the next few days.

I notice that some of the BRP4 work generators are disabled. Does that mean you don't have enough system resources at your end to run them all at once? Or would simply enabling more of them help?

Was a quota recently added of

Was a quota recently added of 128 work units per day? My system used to be able to get more than 128 per day but today is the first day the system is coming back with a message saying a daily quota of 128 was reached. Thanks.

Have you recently had more

Have you recently had more than the usual percentage of failed workunits? Some BOINC projects set a variable quota for each computer, with fewer allowed for the computers that have given the most failed workunits lately.

There were two units with errors and two units invalid since the beginning of the month. I had the memory frequency on the GPU turned up a bit high which is why those two work units had errors. I'm not sure if that is enough to trigger a limit though.

There has "always" been a

There has "always" been a "Maximum daily WU quota per CPU" of 32/day if no errors are found. For each erroneous returned task, the count is decremented by one. For each successful task, the count is doubled. You can see the actual quota in the detailed online Computer information of your account.

So, yes, for your host 3715444, there is a daily quota of 128 CPU tasks, whereas your other hosts have a quota of 256.

I can't tell how GPUs are counted.

The host I received the message on is 3633494 which is detected as 8-cores. The limit used to be at 256 (32x8). It looks like the count just reset now that it is 12:19am UTC.

hello, i need help for Mac OS

hello, i need help for Mac OS X 10.6/10.7 inteli386/64 BRP4 app_info.xml

i tried to run these two apps:
einsteinbinary_BRP4_1.10_i686-apple-darwin__NVOpenCL
einsteinbinary_BRP4_1.01_i686-apple-darwin__BRP3cuda32OSX

einsteinbinary_BRP4_1.01_i686-apple-darwin__BRP3cuda32OSX works without app_info.xml as scheduler request so it have to with xml too.

ivé got these errors an i think that something is missing in my app_info.xml

Putting 'Collatz' Command

Putting 'Collatz' Command Line Parameters in your Einstein app_info won't help,

The closing tag should be on the next line:

einsteinbinary_BRP3_1.00_graphics_i686-apple-darwin
graphics_app

The requirement looks rather high,

You probably had better go through your client_state.xml with a fine tooth comb, and pick out what works for Stock Cuda and use that.

Where did you get this app from? It's not listed on the applications page. There isn't a program of this name in the Einstein project download directory, where all the official apps and supporting files are kept. So perhaps you would like to tell us the story behind this particular app?

I trust you are aware that an OpenCL app for AMD/ATI GPUs is under test and development over at the test project, Albert@Home? In due course, an official OpenCL app will be released here when testing is completed there. Until then, I don't think OpenCL apps should be in use here.

Cheers,
Gary.
