Message 58929 - Posted: 15 Jun 2022 | 9:14:29 UTC

Can someone have a quick look and let me know the problem here, a few computed fine but most errored out.

https://www.gpugrid.net/results.php?userid=524374&offset=0&show_names=0&state=5&appid=

Also, I have just started the project again on another machine with an Nvidia card and most of the time the card is idle with some second or so long spikes every now and again, is that normal?

Thanks

likely failing because your GT1030 doesn't have enough GPU memory. these python tasks use a lot of VRAM. GT1030 is probably too weak to run these kinds of tasks unfortunately.

and yes it's normal to see that behavior with your RTX 3090. the app has intermittent GPU use

Thanks, some other odd behaviour I see on the 3090 machine, it seems to start the WU at 2%, if I pause Boinc and restart later the units elapsed time resets to 0 and the percentage goes back to 2%?

The program goes through several stages. The first and second 1% stages are unpacking files from an archive, and don't need to be repeated - progress will move to 2% instantly.

The rest of the run involves the serious work, and the app doesn't work out exactly how far its progressed immediately. If you wait a few seconds or minutes (depending on the speed of the rest of the machine), it should jump back up to where it was before the restart, and continue from there in 0.98% increments.

I have the same problem. I have 109 units errored out (zero completed) between 2% and 4% completed. What is going on?

A GT 1030 with 2047 MB of video RAM will be below the minimum specification to run these tasks. Sorry about that.

There are so many GPU's out there with ONLY 2GB memory - it is inconceivable you are unable to harness this energy source.

Alas, but at the moment this is true.
If you are interested in helping projects in the field of medicine, then you should pay attention to Folding@home.
While this project is outside the BOINC ecosystem, it is undoubtedly worthy of attention.
Its hardware requirements are quite modest and there are always tasks to crunch.
