1) Message boards : News : Unexpected downtime (Message 892)

The Cache took the strain :) Otherwise no dramas at this end, its kinda what the cache is for anyway.

First significant downtime, that wasnt really an issue due to cache, so the silence on the Boards is not remarkable, could even say it was a testiment of trust that it would get sorted as any downtime is so rare.

Queue flood of posts yelling "not for me it wasnt" rofl ...... Murphy and I can be close aquaintences at times :)

Personally I'd say take a bow, not a slap round the head :)

And thx for an honest report on the why. Good job.


+1 ... :) Good job, Teemu.
2) Questions and Answers : Windows : Cannot ignore 2nd ATI on Moo (Message 831)

Is there any way to fix this and truly exclude device 0 from running on Moo?

See my old post at DNETC forum here

Try using method 2/ (load as many WUs as possible with 1 video card plugged before you start Boinc Manager) before restarting Boinc Manager with 2 GPUs connected/recognized + using the exclusion tag in the config file.
This should work fine...

At least, it works for me (just checked) with the following config file:

<cc_config>
<log_flags>
</log_flags>
<options>
<ignore_ati_dev>0</ignore_ati_dev>
<no_gpus>0</no_gpus>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
</options>
</cc_config>


Cheers, Extra Ball, this sounds like a plan. Just curious to see how this affects CPU load and core selection. Right now I removed the 2nd card, but I will test this as an opportunity arises.

Maybe possible but I doubt it .... Moo is a multi threaded GPU app and therefore will use all available GPUs. The application instructions for the threads are a layer(s) below the BOINC statement, so the BOINC statement re device 0 will have no effect.

Cheers, Zydor.

I may try excluding the GPU for the project explicitly, but I am afraid this will happen at the same level and have no effect. So probably the only way of getting one idle ATI is pairing it with an Nvidia GPU.

I set BOINC to ignore ATI 0 (ATI 5450) and crunch only on ATI 1 (ATI 5870). <ignore_ati_dev>0</ignore_ati_dev> in the cc_config file. Works wonderful on MW, but lately I noted strange crunching times and CPU usage when running Moo! on that rig.

So I checked back and found the ATI 0 gets load from Moo. Also the DNETC benchmark seems to check both cards and gives the usual #3 recommendation for dual cards.

Is there any way to fix this and truly exclude device 0 from running on Moo?

Cheers
