There should be plenty of work in workunits of the "MDADpr4" series. It should be one of the largest efforts so far.

12.400 credits for 970 seconds (16 minutes) work seems a bit high.
If they are meant to be that short, this batch won't last very long.

Seems about right. It's the WUs which are relatively short, so maybe the "fast return" bonuses are too easy, but otherwise should follow the usual credit ratio of the previous years.

Toni, Since these WUs run so much faster I think you need to increase your daily quota.

The daily quota is automatically increased by 1 after every successful tasks, and decreased by 1 after every failed tasks.
One of my host has a daily quota of 126 at the moment.
Is it possible that some workunits run to an error on your host?

Hi Toni.

Great to have things running again.
However my host ID: 506342 are not receiving any WU's.
Other two hosts no problem.

Do we have a a quota-problem here or ...?

That host has an outdated NVidia driver (391.25) installed. Update it from http://www.nvidia.com (the latest version is 442.19).
Exit BOINC manager and close the scientific applications before you begin.

Correct. Just to remind anyone returning to the project because there is lots of work now, Toni did publish a FAQ on the new acemd3 application's requirements.
https://www.gpugrid.net/forum_thread.php?id=5002&nowrap=true#52865

[Edit] There is an erratum on the FAQ page regarding minimum drivers and CUDA level and drivers needed for Windows.

    Linux running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU 2.10 (cuda100) 16 Oct 2019 | 9:54:05 UTC
    Linux running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU 2.10 (cuda80) 16 Oct 2019 | 9:54:08 UTC
    Microsoft Windows running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU 2.10 (cuda101) 16 Oct 2019 | 9:54:02 UTC
    Microsoft Windows running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU 2.10 (cuda92) 16 Oct 2019 | 9:54:04 UTC



The minimum Windows CUDA version is CUDA92 and the minimum Linux CUDA version is CUDA80.

The FAQ has those swapped.

Today is March 12. I've got a new system with a 2070 Super ready and waiting but looks as if the queue is empty. Is that true or did I set something up incorrectly?

Or, how does one specify getting jobs from MDADpr4 series?

I'm brand new to this BOINC project. Been doing LHC for quite a while but they seem to be having problems with their server. <sigh>

Thanks.

There is plenty of WUs and your card is supported. Just make sure you have a recent driver.

Edit: perhaps your PC is not attached to gpugrid. I don't see it.

BOINC client is not recognizing any NVIDIA graphics card at your Debian Linux system ID: 527296
Try entering Software - Drivers, choose latest NVIDIA proprietary driver, apply and reboot your system.
No tasks will be sent until any NVIDIA graphics card is shown at "GPU" column describing your system...

Assuming that your NVIDIA proprietary drivers are correctly installed at your new system:
I've had to add at several of my Linux hosts a certain delay to drivers be ready after system boot.
If boinc-client starts before drivers are ready, it will not see any available NVIDIA GPU, and then no tasks will be sent.

To automatize this delay:
Open a Terminal window and execute

sudo gedit /etc/rc.local

Then add the following lines before the "exit 0" one:
sleep 25
/etc/init.d/boinc-client restart

Reboot your system to check if this helps.
Your installed GPU should appear listed at "Coprocessors" section of your host ID# 527296
Currently it shows "---" (No coprocessor - GPU avaliable)

My client is running since March 15th (not continuously) and no tasks have been given to my system. from what I see my pretty old GeForce 9600GT is correctly configured and listed in the webpage. Rosetta is chunking CPU tasks without any problems.. any advice?

Best regards.

I think that older graphic cards can only run SETI@Home. You can also try with Asteroids@Home, but I don't think it will work.

Ivan, there is work your card can probably handle if you run Milkyway@home or Asteroids@home. I have run them on a GT 710 2GB and a laptop with a NVM 4200 that only has 512MB.
(I can't get GPUGrid to run on anything with less than 2GBs of memory, myself.)

Your GPU will only be able to crank out 1 or 2 of tasks a day, even running Milkyway or Asteroids, and your GPU has to run opencl.

I just bought a GTX 1650 slot-powered card new for $135(US) on Ebay. It is almost 10 times as fast as a 9600 GT. Here is a comparison.
https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1650-vs-Nvidia-GeForce-9600-GT/4039vsm7677

Hello and thanks everyone for your suggestions!

I've tried every single project you suggested but out of all of them the only one that goes through the GPU is SETI@home (too bad they're stopping that soon!). grazie Alessio!

Yes Pop Piasa, I know this card is as old as time, but I'm not what you'd call a gamer (still, I sometimes play some very old games and that doesn't require much power). In fact I have this friend of mine that I had planned to meet some days ago, he promised to bring me a GTX960 he no longer needs but then lockdown here in Italy happened and then I lost my chance to meet him (and have the card).. Guess I'll have to wait!

Best regard to everyone!
Ivan.
