Nothing in what sense? Can I help?
Welcome 54thvoid, glad to have you!!!
I may be able to help too since I just got my gpus running WUs after a bit of work. Let me know
Alright, I have a Far Cry 3 code and a 20% discount coupon for "Medal of Honor Warfighter Digital Deluxe Edition". Norton, could you add those to the prizes?
I think i need to be spoon fed the instructions.
So far I've:
Created profile on WCG (see pic below)
Added Project - WCG
Added AMD/ATI GPU only profile (see pic below)
But it just doesn't seem to do anything. No gpu usage, nada, nothing.
I'm getting a Network Activity Suspended message but I can't seem to see how to re-enable it in the Activity menu......
What else do i have to do?
When I installed it first time for cpu use it ran fine.
In the second picture, set "Do work on my graphics card while computer is in use" to yes.
The app_info.xml goes in the www.worldcommunitygrid.org folder
Try that and let us know how it goes
Wished I could change my vote on the OP, I am going to be participating
I tinkered with my network settings in my profile - they were all at zero for maximum speeds and transfers. Changed them to:
Max upload 150 Kbytes/sec
Max downooad 300 Kbytes/sec
Transfer at most 100 Mbytes every 1 day
I just threw those numbers in - help would be appreciated.
Also, both gpu's working up to 76-77%, how to increase? Change app_info to .25 for 4 WU's?
My cards are working now. Not quite sure at what.... But is this okay?
That means that it isn't working right--it's just running one WU/card ATM. In other words, it doesn't seem to recognize the app_info file. Did you do as I suggested?
Usage will go to ~90%+ running 3 or 4 WUs at once
Those cards should be able to take atleast 4 WU per card (I know my 6950's do easily)
It says in the OP of the dual gpu thread for WCG to:
I did do that.
Is this in your XML file?
It's running tasks, doing about one per minute per gpu.
Make sure the file is in c:\ProgramData\BOINC\Data\projects\www.worldcommunitygrid.org, and that it was edited so the count line reads like Brandon posted above (gives you four WU's per card).
On the network card, the only thing I changed was setting it to always available.
Did you restart BOINC manager after put app_info.xml?
I assume i have to make a new folder titled "www.worldcommunitygrid.org" and drop the xml file in there? Because i have no folder of that name.
Ignore me - I'm an idiot. It's there.
Haha, you're no idiot. Your issues are nothing compared i what I had
What's it look like now that you place app_info inside the right folder? Is should be running all nice and peachy now.
So you got it figured out?
I got confused too cause I was looking programfiles not programdata LOLZ
The copied and pasted xml file is in the wcg.org folder now and the correct number ".25" is in place.
Restarted client but it still runs one task per gpu.
I'll do it all from scratch again (delete all folders etc), see what happens.
Took me a few trys to get it working to but have happly been running 4 GPU units all day and my points have stacked up very nicely Should i try for 5 or can't that be done ?.
If it helps this is what i did before it all started working.
First i cleared all work from the program, I then let boinc add the new project and gave it a bit of time to finds a few work units, I then shut down boinc and added the XML file to the correct folder, I then loaded Boinc back up and let it run and that seemed to do the trick.
Did you let it run it a minute? It may have had to finish the current WUs?
Man is right, Mine had to finish its current WU's then it brought in 4 on each card
A guy at XS has a HD7950 doing eight. But I believe you can run no more WUs than you have CPU threads
Thanks that answers my earlyer question so i will just stick to 4
I'm afraid you're wrong.
