Starting in the next few days we will remove the cuda3.1 application from the long queue.
If you want to crunch on acemdlong you need Nvidia latest drivers.

In a week or so, we wil also upgrade the applications to a newer version with mainly science related improvements, but also an output file of 1/3 of the current size.

Now that is good news! After three hours of upload for each of my last two WUs I missed the 24-hour target by about 15 minutes!

So, I am on CUDA 4.2.x; but driver 301.42. There was a new driver out, maybe 304.x or 306.x which we were advised to avoid.

So, what would be the proper driver number now acceptible?

Thanks.

The 301.42 driver (and higher) will be ok.

Thanks. I am relieved. Playing around with Nvidia drivers is not my cup of tea.

If you don't have a problem with a driver then don't upgrade.

Any news on this part? My cards crunch the NOELIA-mega tasks in time, but I struggle to report the 135 MB files within the 24 hours timeframe.

That's a "me too" from Tomba.

Are there any Infos how soon we can expect the "shorter Upload"-App?

Today i have an extra little nightshift in the area of my BOINC Cluster with its superslow 3G Connection and try to find better antenna positions and optimize network per cc_config options, every bit on Bandwidth more counts. The Provider cant help me anymore :/

I just got back from vacation, so do not quote me on this, but I believe sometime this month we will update the app. It will cut upload sizes to 1/3 (33%) of what is typical now. A huge improvement for everyone. Until the update we will have to continue to suffer the large upload sizes. We will let you know a date for the update as soon as we know it.
