Hi,

I've been noticing that when running WU's, mostly Noelia, that either the GPU runs between 0%-10% capacity or the WU's are returning errors.

Could anyone offer any advice as to how I can eliminate the errors or as to why the GPU doesn't seem to be running at capacity.

Thanks

Stephen

Stephan,

Suggest you restart your system (cold start) and try to stop and start the task if performance drops again. Can't see the temps (Linux) so I would suggest you increase fan speed on the GPU if you have not done so already. Also ensure you are not overusing the CPU if you also crunch for CPU projects.

See this thread. Maybe you also have to update your drivers. I have not tried it myself yet because I have other problems with that host but I will once I solve them.
