Sometimes experiments finish. That's a good thing.
A lot of what's been sent out still has a few steps left.

Plus us 918 users, on the whole, already have a spare work unit.
That should give a bit of leeway so that most people are crunching when there are steps left.

Perhaps though some notice or discussion of this on the News board would be appreciated.

I appreciate that experiments conclude, but also, as I am out of work on some systems already, would like to have an idea of the length of the 'no work to send'

Thomas, I expect that will be the case.

But just for the sake of discussion, do you think the team was caught by surprise as to the timing of this?

I suspect they saw this coming at least during the past week, and perhaps before this (as they've launched the AMD GPU work).

So my lament as it were, is that there was no prior alert.

I'm able to shift (or add) other projects to use the GPU's and will do so as the GPUGrid work clears out.

I'm not part of the GPUG crew so I don't know and I don't want to speculate on this subject, Barry.
I guess we will have news very quickly.
Just be a little patient.
BTW, happy weekend to you, Barry :)

It was for this reason that I opened this thread.

Message 40110 - Posted: 8 Feb 2015 | 18:10:31 UTC - in response to Message 40103.

Out of 7 NVidia GPUs, I have 3 idle. I was able to bog down the other 4 in order to make them last longer (until Monday) so they won't go completely idle. They are checking for tasks every once in a while each and I am getting only tasks that time out on other people's computers or error out on their computers. Oddly enough, because of the timing, I have the one computer with 2 cards that has 4 tasks: 2 working and 2 waiting. Depending on new tasks coming out, I may make the 100,000 on Monday or Tuesday now.

I've posted something similar on another thread, but just to reiterate: Einstein at home has GPU work available, despite not making that clear in the BOINC project selection page. So that's my backup project, set at 0 priority. Much better for the GPU work to go somewhere then to just let them idle while we wait for more GPUgrid resends.

hahaha, the others still idle of GPUGrid work, the one with the WUs to spare just got a 3rd spare.
Is there a way to transfer the WUs from one PC to another over the network or are they assigned and stuck?

While someone may be able to make a theoretical argument about transferring tasks from one computer to another, they should be for all practical purposes considered "assigned and stuck."

It looks like they might have just got new WUs together maybe. I just filled up all my GPUs for short and long runs all at once.

Both queues needs to be refilled.
Until then my new-old spare project kicked in.
This is SETI@Home at the moment, but they produce less heat than GPUGrid does, so if I catch cold, I'll put the blame on the staff. :)

Brian, set up some backup projects (like SETI and Einstein@Home), with a resource share of 0, so your GPUs stay busy, but pick up GPUGrid whenever they can!

Guys:

No need to be sad. Be happy!

If we run out of work here, it happens. Just make sure your clients are attached to other GPU projects, to keep the GPUs busy. You can even attach with Resource Share 0, such that they will be backup projects, and will only get work when your main projects are out.

I just sent some more simulations for the weekend. Remember that boinc and our project in particular, as it is set up right now, will respawn approximately 1 WU for each correctly completed WU; therefore you shouldn't look at the unsent WU but at the "in progress" queue to assess the load of GPUGRID. In other words, if you see some WU in the unsent queue it just means that GPUGRID is running at its maximum speed and as soon as you finish the current workunit a new one will be generated in the immidiate future. Happy crunching!
