Does anyone know if a HHCJ6 Dell NVIDIA Tesla K80 24GB GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 Server GPU Accelerator card will process Einstein@Home work units?  A driver is available on the nVidia  website.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

It should work, but don't

It should work, but don't expect miracles, these are quite old.

You'll also need to force air through them, as they come without a fan.

Einstein@Home kicked off two

Einstein@Home kicked off two jobs on my K80, but eventually they both timed out.  I assume that the card overheated.  Apparently my foam and cardboard ducting, plus a Corsair 140mm fan at 1700RPM doing nothing else, was not sufficient.

I have six K80s, the plan is three each in two systems.  I will keep working on the forced cooling.  Plain old bionc-client-cuda (Debian) loaded up and ran fine.

I started here:

With your computers hidden,

With your computers hidden, we only can take your word that the tasks simply timed out and didn't have other issues like OpenCL missing from the drivers or overheating.

You need to get some Delta high airflow/high rpm server fans in front of the card to provide adequate cooling.

You will need that ducting you constructed to force the air through the cards.

Your computers are hidden so only you can see the information that would more likely reveal why the tasks failed.  You said "timed out".  Did they just time out - exit status shows as 'EXIT_TIME_LIMIT_EXCEEDED' - or was it something else?

If you click the TaskID link on the website for a failed task you can get a lot more information.

Cheers,
Gary.

The way I see it: That

That thing will run on "fun", not that "stuff" that comes out of the wall socket!
