Message 138231 - Posted: 23 Feb 2020 | 14:46:57 UTC

I noticed that my workstation is done crunching GFN-16 WUs, it fails to download new GPU WUs until the PPSE-LLR WUs are also done and it requests both GPU and CPU WUs.

Here's an example. The two GPUs finish their GFN WUs in about 90 seconds at 3:20. But "Requesting new tasks for NVIDIA GPU" comes back with "got 0 new tasks," and the GPUs just sit idle. Meanwhile, the CPU is working on three PPSE-LLR tasks, which don't finish until 3:27. Then "Requesting new tasks for CPU and NVIDIA GPU" comes back with "Scheduler request completed: got 1 new tasks | Starting task genefer16_33053707_0." Seconds later it gets the second GFN WU. Then "Requesting new tasks for CPU" gets the next set of PPSE-LLR WUs.

My work preferences have "Max # of simultaneous PrimeGrid tasks" set to "No limit." I don't know what else would be affecting this?

I'm not 100% sure what your question is, so I'll go with the subject as the question:

Here's your prefs for the work venue, and the answer to your question:

You're not getting cpu tasks because you have the box for CPU jobs (all the way at the top) unchecked.

Hi Michael!

I've been changing lots of variables, trying to solve this.

When you looked, I happened to have CPU jobs unchecked to see what would happen (spoiler alert: I didn't get any CPU WUs, and my two GPUs each got WUs without interruption. The system works! :) )

I've narrowed the problem down to these two states:

This first configuration results in "The Issue," where I don't get replacement GPU WUs immediately. I only get new GPU WUs when BOINC is also requesting CPU WUs.
In practice, it looks like this:
1. Initially, I get 5 WUs (2 GPU and 3 CPU).
2. The 2 GPU WUs finish in 90 seconds, and I'm left with only 3 CPU WUs.
3. Then when the 3 CPU WUs finish 7 minutes later, I finally get refreshed with all 5 WUs again (2 GPU and 3 CPU).

<venue name="work">
<resource_share>0</resource_share>
<no_cpu>0</no_cpu>
<no_ati>1</no_ati>
<no_cuda>0</no_cuda>
<project_specific>
<max_jobs>0</max_jobs>
<max_cpus>4</max_cpus>
<app_id>18</app_id>
<app_id>23</app_id>
<gfn_16_types> nvidiaOCL </gfn_16_types>
</project_specific>
</venue>


This second configuration runs flawlessly with no Scheduler problems. New GPU WUs download immediately after the previous WU finishes, regardless of the status of the CPU WUs.

<venue name="work">
<resource_share>0</resource_share>
<no_cpu>0</no_cpu>
<no_ati>1</no_ati>
<no_cuda>0</no_cuda>
<project_specific>
<max_jobs>0</max_jobs>
<max_cpus>6</max_cpus>
<app_id>18</app_id>
<app_id>23</app_id>
<gfn_16_types> nvidiaOCL </gfn_16_types>
</project_specific>
</venue>


Note: I have a Haswell 6-core (12-thread) CPU.

It's like some weird slot problem. In the second configuration, BOINC has no problem filling 2 GPU slots and 2 CPU slots continuously. But in the first configuration, it fills 5 slots initially, then seems to max out at 3?

I've been trying other configs like <max_cpus>3</max_cpus>. With this it fills 6 slots at first (2 GPU, 4 CPU), and then it never allows another GPU WU again! Four full slots (or three, once a PPSE finishes) seems to be the max.

Good idea! I just tried it, but it didn't help.

Today I've set my config to PPS-LLR MEGA (multithread all 6 cores) and GFN17MEGA:

<no_cpu>0</no_cpu>
<no_ati>1</no_ati>
<no_cuda>0</no_cuda>
<project_specific>
<max_jobs>0</max_jobs>
<max_cpus>12</max_cpus>
<app_id>21</app_id>
<app_id>25</app_id>
<gfn_17_mega_types> nvidiaOCL </gfn_17_mega_types>

I've gotten no GPU tasks whatsoever.

When I flipped on the non-zero Resource Share ("0" to "1"), I saw BOINC pre-fetch the next PPS-LLR MEGA task with about 90 seconds to go, but for GPU it keeps saying:

2/24/2020 8:12:05 PM | PrimeGrid | Requesting new tasks for NVIDIA GPU
2/24/2020 8:12:10 PM | PrimeGrid | Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks

Here is my cc_config.xml file:

<cc_config>
<log_flags>

</log_flags>
<options>
<report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>
<allow_remote_gui_rpc>1</allow_remote_gui_rpc>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
</options>
</cc_config>


And an app_config.xml I use for PPS Sieve. That shouldn't affect GFN, right?

<app_config>

<app>
<name>pps_sr2sieve</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.1</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>

</app_config>


I can't think of anything else that it might be getting settings & configuration from.

On a whim, just tried forcing the issue with the app_config.xml:

Aaauugghh! Just figured it out!



There's no space. The behavior I saw yesterday was literally letting through GFN-16 WUs when there wasn't already PPS-LLR WUs filling the remaining disk space. Today, with the much larger PPS-LLR MEGA and GFN-17 MEGA WUs, there's not enough room for more than one, period.
