I keep getting Messages the

I keep getting Messages the Meerkat-WUs is not availiable for one of my machines:

 

Do 04 Aug 2022 06:52:19 CEST | Einstein@Home | Binary Radio Pulsar Search (MeerKAT) is not available for your type of computer.

It's a Ryzen 5950x with a RTX 3090 FE on Linux. Never had such problems. My other machine with a RTX 3070 on Linux (same Kernel-version, same drivers) doesn't get that message. What's wrong?

Received two more Meerkat

Received two more Meerkat units and they failed instantly just like the previous 2 units.

A good way to start the day:

A good way to start the day: 38 valid M22 tasks! (183 pending)

Ideas are not fixed, nor should they be; we live in model-dependent reality.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it was some kind of driver issue. Navi 10 always kind of got the short end of the stick in that regard. Also possible to be some compilation flag or argument that needs to be added. 

Good thought.  I'll wait for the dust to settle before playing with drivers.

either for updates, or they determined that those apps are good enough and don't require further testing.

That now shows zero BRP7 apps.  Yet there are 5000 in the queue.

I get the same on an i5 8600K running Windows 11 with an AMD GPU.  Hopefully this means they've finished testing most of the apps, and not they've found major problems with them!

No new tasks this morning so

No new tasks this morning so far for me.  But the Validator ran during my night, and granted 5 of my 23 tasks validation.  At least one each from all three of my machines.  Four were Windows with a Windows quorum partner, but one validated with a Linux partner.   Nearly all the rest currently show as Validation Inclusive, against Linux quorum partners.

These tasks arrive associated with a high claim of amount of computing work required, so BOINC thinks they will take many times more elapsed time than they actually require given that my DCF is adjusted from running a steady diet of GRP.  That would give scheduler heartburn if running GRP and BRP7 on the same machine with a queue longer than negligible.

When I did gravity and gamma

When I did gravity and gamma together I had the same problem, one of them was always out by a factor of at least 3.  Not sure why they can't set the numbers more accurately.

Actually, it shows no "app versions".  The distinction is important.

Keeping that in mind, it makes sense.

BRP MeerKAT is the app.  It exists.  The ready-to-send tasks are associated with the app, BRP MeerKAT.  They are there, just waiting to be sent out.

The app versions, which are missing, are the specific software to run this app on Windows CUDA, Windows OpenCL, Linux CUDA, Linux OpenCL, etc.  

When a computer, for example my Windows machine with an Nvidia GPU, asks for work, the Einstein server sees that there's a BRP MeerKAT task ready to send, and then looks for an app version that can run on my computer.  There isn't any (because right now there are none at all), so the server sends the error message:

8/4/2022 9:16:54 AM | Einstein@Home | Binary Radio Pulsar Search (MeerKAT) is not available for your type of computer.

If the app versions still existed, but I tried to get work from a RaspberryPi computer, I'd get the same error because there's no software for a RaspberryPi.

The tasks are there, but right now there's no software (aka app versions) enabled for any computers, so no tasks can be sent out.

So they've been switched off

So they've been switched off for adjustment.  I guess we wait a day or so and see what happens.  Looks like only one of my cards (R9 Nano) hates Gamma beta, my ten 280X cards are fine with them, so I've put the beta and gamma ticks back on and I'll run whatever I get.
