You can insert your old email adress in your Moo! Wrapper preferences, the @moowrapper.net is created automatically if you leave it empty and you need to do it for general/home/etc. if you are using that.
2) Questions and Answers : Windows : Nvidia GPU not processing but Intel CPU (Message 8279)
Posted 31 Jan 2021 by Link
Post:
With hidden computers it's a bit hard to guess, but do you have
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
in your cc_config.xml?

EDIT: we don't have an intel GPU app here, so BOINC should not use that GPU at all for Moo! Wrapper. It might be caused by some energy saving feature, that the app is running on the wrong GPU. You need to unhide your computers, so we can see Stderr output of your tasks.

That are just two WUs from Moo! Wrapper (I get usually the 32 block WUs).

Perhaps the project admin can say something about this? Where is all my work going? Am I just burning electricity for almost nothing?

All my work is validating.

Post:
As you can see on BOINCstats, I'm doing work worth about 8-10k credits per day, which equals about 1000-1200 blocks on distributed.net (we get 8 credits/block here).

This is my history on distributed.net:
27-Jan-2021 	128 	
26-Jan-2021 	64 	
24-Jan-2021 	651 	
23-Jan-2021 	1,068 	
22-Jan-2021 	1,216 	
21-Jan-2021 	1,205 	

The issue seems to have started on the 24th January. The 25th I apparently didn't submit any blocks at all and after that only few. Where is the rest of my blocks going? Is it just some sudden delay in reporting to distributed.net? Untill this day the ratio between credits here and blocks on distributed.net was perfect.
7) Message boards : Number crunching : cuda31 (Message 8269)
Posted 2 Jan 2021 by Link
Post:
You might be able to disable the cuda application with the <exclude_gpu> tag in cc_config.xml

<app> specifies the short name of an application (i.e. the <name> element within the <app> element in client_state.xml). If specified, only tasks for that app are excluded.
So that might work, if the both versions have different names, but I don't think it's the case.


What definitely works is the Anonymous platform mechanism, but than you might need to update the application yourself one day if a new one is released. There is an app_info.xml, which I use, you'll need to change the file names in it, but than it should work. Check what's in your client_state.xml and replace it in the app_info.xml.

EDIT: OTOH I see that most tasks you get are OpenCL anyway, so not sure it's worth the effort. The server seems to know by now, that the cuda app is slower on your system, so it shouldn't send you many cuda tasks anymore.

OK, I was able to get it to work myself: tasks for computer 1179617.

In case this might be useful for someone, here's what worked for me:

1. Download these files:
http://moowrap.net/download/dnetc_wrapper_1.5_windows_intelx86__ati14.exe
http://moowrap.net/download/dnetc521-win32-x86-stream.exe
http://moowrap.net/download/dnetc-gpu-1.5.ini
http://moowrap.net/download/job-ati14-1.00.xml


2. Change job-ati14-1.00.xml to
<job_desc>
<task>
<application>dnetc521-win32-x86-stream.exe</application>
<checkpoint_filename>chkpoint</checkpoint_filename>
<command_line>-ini dnetc.ini -runoffline -multiok=1</command_line>
</task>
</job_desc>

It's just the version number in the file name of the executable, that you need to change, I couldn't find the right one on the server as it's download dir isn't possible to open with the web browser.


3. Copy all the above files to Moo! data directory together with this app_info.xml:
<app_info>
 <app>
  <name>dnetc</name>
  <user_friendly_name>Distributed.net Client</user_friendly_name>

   <open_name>job.xml</open_name>

  </file_ref>

</app_info>



4. Restart BOINC.

Detached and re-attached to get rid of the broken app_info.xml (or whatever was broken there), still not getting any work and the server won't tell me why. A year ago it worked as you can see on the application details page for that host.

Anyone alive here? The project admin perhaps, who should know it actually? It would really help a lot, if the server was configured to send some useful messages when it's not sending work when requested.

Issue same as here after reactivation of that computer after a longer break, tried disabling running beta applications since the version 1.5 isn't beta anymore, but it didn't help. Detaching and re-attaching didn't work either.

Any ideas how to get work here again?

Does anyone have perhaps a working app_info and download URL for the current app?

EDIT: I was however able to get some CPU tasks after I enabled it in the preferences. Disabled it again, still not getting any GPU tasks.

Posted 30 May 2019 by Link
Post:
I can only answer #2: with the anonymous platform mechanism. If you need help with that, you will need to post the entire <app> and <app_version> sections of the cuda application from your client_state.xml and also the corresponding <file_info>, because I don't have cuda devices. You can find that info also in the sched_reply_moowrap.net.xml.

In general it's recommended to exclude BOINC data dir from scanning. This exe comes from distributed.net and not from Moo! project, so it's the wrong place to ask anyway.

I wouldn't worry much about one single error message, you don't have any error or invalid tasks in your list, so probably no real issue.

Posted 9 Apr 2019 by Link
Post:
Well, CPUs get here the same 8 credits per block as GPUs, relative to other projects you will have to find out self, that might be different for each computer depending on CPU, RAM etc, but in general I'd say Moo! is paying quite good.

At the end it's your choise which projects you prefer to crunch, I for example try to use my CPUs for work that can't be done on GPUs.

Or do these users have nothing better to do than abort WUs all day long instead of disabling them in the preferences if they don't want them?

Examples:
1
2
3
4
5
6

So far I have not seen any Windows or Linux users doing this.

Not too sure if I can go into this account, remove the letter I added and then correct the email address in order to transfer the credits over to my correct account?

No, this will not work, merging accounts is not supported by BOINC. Just remove Moo! Wrapper on that device and add it again using the right account.
