Topic 230267

It means that i will receive only stuffs that can be crunched with CPU only and not GPU or both? What i don't want is to crunch with my CPU something that can also be crunched with GPU. So what "request CPU-only tasks from this project" means in this regard?

You have 4 individual tasks on Einstein alone, with a total of 9 that have done tasks with credits in the 3 digit range or higher.

My thoughts are that you may have reached the limit of what your two GPUs can do, even with the 12GB of memory per GPU.  You might want to double check all tasks requiring a GPU to perform the tasks in question, and the see what each of those tasks are taking in resources.

.....[EDIT].....

Your BOINCstats show that you have, on average, less than 1,000,000 credits per day.  That seems awfully low for having 2 GPUs with 12GB each.

Right now i'm working on 26

Right now i'm working on 26 different projects but in a few minutes i'll totally focus on Einstein, that's why my average credit is so low.

WOW!!  26 different projects is a lot of projects to be working on for just one computer.  Keep us posted when you narrow it down to Einstein only.

By The Way - Welcome to Einstein!  This is one of the better projects in BOINC as far as I'm concerned.

Well. Thank you but it's not

Well. Thank you but it's not that great. They only receive the 3.85% of my computing power each but i love to cycle between them and now it's time to properly focus on Einstein. That's why i opened this topic. And about it i think i just found the answer: I should set to "no" this "run CPU versions of applications for which GPU versions are available". Is it correct?

Yes!  That is absolutely correct!  Any other questions you may have, don't hesitate to ask.
