Topic 198635

I'm running out of Gravitational Wave search O1 all-sky I v1.04 (X64O1I), is there a problem with work generation?

I'm down to my last

I'm down to my last Gravitational Wave search O1 all-sky F v1.04 (X64O1F)
windows_x86_64 on 1 box, I've been asking for new work for 2 days but no joy.
My other box gets lots of them.

We created all the work for

We created all the work for Gravitational Wave search O1 all-sky F that we could create and now wait for the remaining workunits to finish. Only tasks that failed or where we had no reply within 14 days will now be sent out again. This is very intermittent and you should activate the FGRPB1 app again in order to keep your computer busy.

I have run out of GPU work

I have run out of GPU work units. Is there a problem with work generation?

Oddly, the same thing has happened on two different machines, and also with SETI, suggesting a common cause.

The preference logs seem to be ok, and both event logs show requests for GPU work units.

Any suggestions?

You appear only to be running BRP6 for GPU work.  As this thread discusses, that one is ending.

My suggestion is that you enable BRP4G work which is referred to on your Einstein project preferences web page as 
"Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo, GPU)".

Thank you for that. However,

Thank you for that. However, BRP4G work is enabled, so I am none the wiser.

From the last contact log for

From the last contact log for computer #11930388 one can see that the server refuses to give you BRP4G work because you have a GPU driver that's too new.

Can you, Holmis, or some

Can you, Holmis, or some other kind soul please clarify your last post? You see, I have my computer optimized to run BRP6 Units is that is what I have exclusively crunched on my GPU's for the last year. Recently, I have been unable to stay as well informed on the going-ons at the project. As such, once I saw my computer completed its share of BRP6 tasks, I ran out of GPU work and my PC reverted to the back up project, SETI. 

I would like to continue on Einstein, but did not until now realize that my graphics card driver was/is the impediment to receiving BRP4G work. Furthermore, to any project administrators/volunteers/crunchers, can you please all clarify the direction the project is heading towards. I do understand that BRP6 app is at its end as there will be no further processing of Parkes data. However, there was very little clarification as to any new and upcoming GPU oriented projects from Einstein, or will the project just continue CPU tasks only henceforth.

Thank you all.

Manuel, have you enabled

Manuel, have you enabled Arecibo work for your GPUs in your preference setting on your account webpage?

Holmis reply to R is based on his (R) running an Apple based OS X machine with ATI graphic cards.
