Hello Crunchers,

I have just put out application version 900 for owners of Pascal GPUs. To test this you need:

* A Geforce 10-series or Tesla P-series GPU
* 64 bit Windows 7 or later
* NVIDIA Driver 360+
* Accept beta work, and WUs from the acemdbeta and acemdshort applications

Please report all problems in this thread.

MJH,

After a plethora of failed downloads (well, 14) with various PASCALS, SDOERR_CASP10s and the like, I've had several of the new CUDA80 items actual get to the point of running with the following results:


There are more downloading, but I suspect they'll also fail; if I get a successful run, I'll post again.

Note: I'm using BOINC 7.6.22 on Windows 7 Pro SP1 (64bit) with NVIDIA GTX1060 (3GB) running v372.70 drivers.

Cheers
Dave

All three with

(unknown error) - exit code -1073741515 (0xc0000135)

- which is very far from being an 'unknown' error: it's the extremely common NTSTATUS error

0xC0000135
STATUS_DLL_NOT_FOUND
{Unable To Locate Component}
This application has failed to start because %hs was not found. Reinstalling the application might fix this problem.

Recommended action: check all application dependencies using Dependency Walker, and compare with the files supplied and listed in the <app_version> segment of client_state.xml

So, we need to find out which (needed) DLL matt has forgotten to define in app_version. Sorry, I don't own a Pascal card (yet): it's down to you early adopters to debug.

Richard -- are you saying you got the app but dont have a Pascal card? That shouldn't have happened! Could you link to the WU/result please?

[/quote]

There are 3 aux files -- cudart64_80.dll cufft64_80.dll and tcl86.dll . I'm distributing those with underscore prefixes, but then they make it into the BOINC slot directory they should be named without the _.

Could you inspect the slot directory and see what's there, please?
Althernatively, if you cant get to a slot directory, rename the files without the _'s and try dependency walker again.

I've copied the filed without the leading "_", but the dependency walker still shows a lot of yellow question marks. It's so many, that I think it's caused by a missing compiler option or something similar.

And when it ran inside dependency walker, did it complete (text console opens, a few lines are output briefly, then it closes) or did you get an error dialog?

No, not me - I looked at the results (failures) reported by others, and tried to analyse what the problems were from there.

My maximum capability is GTX 970 at the moment, and I'm still getting app v8.48 as expected.

Edit - my local trade counter has some GTX 1050 Ti in stock - I could pick one up in the morning if you're still stuck.

I've got the same error.

All WU are erroring out:
1073741515 (0xffffffffc0000135) Unknown error number on 5-MJHARVEY_PASCALx4002-0-10-RND1192_4 and
App acemd 9.04-80 has stopped responding with regular CASP short WU on Maxwell [-1073741515 (0xffffffffc0000135) Unknown error number.]
Every WU download has a file that stalls.

EDIT- App acemd 9.04-80 has stopped responding details fault module as zlib.dll version 6.3.9600.17736

My host not allowe anymore tasks - I've used up daily quota of WU due to errors. Maybe a reset or change to a higher amount for beta testing would help?

It might be worth simply double-clicking on the executable file - completely outside the BOINC environment. Last time I had an app fail to run, it popped up a dialog to say which runtime version was missing - and there's a %hs placeholder in that NTSTATUS description, which might get populated and displayed.

From answers.microsoft.com:

zlib is an open source library file that may be used with various programs. It's not a Windows native file.

It was a good decision not to download the dubious "repair tool" your search found.
This link should help http://www.zlib.net/

Would you mind trying to run it again? I've included the zlib.dll you said it was missing, but it would seem there's still something else amiss..

The app works perfectly on my first machine (Win7/64), i7-3770S, GTX1080 but causes endless loops on my second (Win 8.1/64), i7-6700K, GTX 1070. The 1070 is identified as a 1080... but I dont know if this has something to do with it.

JoergF - your 1080 machine looks fine, only the 1070 might be misbehaving. Try a project reset as indicated and see if that resolves it.

Okay... I will try.

Besides, I hope that you have enough jobs for us to crunch... my 1080 just swallowed a "2-3 hour short run" in about 6 minutes! And that is still not 100% as it shows load oscillations. It simply is too fast for one CPU core feeding it.

Wow. What a great leap forward.

Might be the older driver (368.39)?

The 372.54 driver works on your W7 system and a GTX1070 works for someone else.
For the record I can see that the 372.70 and 373.6 drivers also work for others.

Upped clock to 2076MHz - so far so good with no simulation unstable messages.

Does anyone else have the same problem downloading the cufft64_80.dll? It stops transmission after 3-5% every time.

It took over 30 minutes for mine to complete.
Each Task take 25-35 minutes do download.
I have seen this for over a year if not more on this Project.

Might be the older driver (368.39)?

The 372.54 driver works on your W7 system and a GTX1070 works for someone else.
For the record I can see that the 372.70 and 373.6 drivers also work for others.


FYI about Driver 373.06 it is also the last Driver that works over on Folding@Home GPU Task.

yes... it is amazing. My 1080 needs to run 4 jobs in parallel and one CPU core per job feeding it. Otherwise it is not utilized fully. Wow.

can you possibly allow some more tasks per machine because I want to check my driver update but already reached the daily limit of jobs... or have you already run out of work? Thanks...

I would like to run 4 ... but I dont get more than 2. The log reads "reached a Limit on Tasks in Progress".

Besides, dont forget to specify the "max_concurrent" parameter in your above config.

A lot of the tasks which have been referenced in this thread over the last couple of hours have been SDOERR_CASP11_crystal_contacts_1ns - and they only take 5-6 minutes on my GTX 970s with the older app, too. Don't attribute all aspects of runtime to the new app alone.

You can't have more than 2 (per GPU), this is GPUGrid policy to achieve fast turnarounds.
If you want to maximize GPU usage on a WDDM os (Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10) you should:
- crunch only 1 CPU task
- not crunch on the iGPU
- use SWAN_SYNC environmental value to make the GPUGrid app use a full CPU thread
- use the app_config.xml posted earlier to run two WU on a single GPU

I already run 2 GPU tasks on my 1080 and dont have any other iGPU or CPU jobs active. The Pascal is simply too fast, so GPUGRID should possibly consider allowing 4 concurrent threads for the new app. Otherwise we will simply waste computing power by load oscillations.

Some of Matt's Beta apps will take 5 times as long as others. It's just a Beta test - don't try to high-tune your setups based preliminary beta runs. Their purpose is to test, report and facilitate fixing. When it basically works conclude nothing else.

Thanks for testing - you helped make it work!

Echoing an earlier post, I'm still running one of Matt's test WUs (29-MJHARVEY_PASCALx4002-2-10-RND2572_0) on my GTX1060 (its currently 1hr50m in for 75% completion) and it seems fine.

As a further test, I've now added a second SDOERR10_CASP10 running in parallel which seems to be OK as well. The test WU is still taking far longer than that conventional, non-test WU (as one might expect) but this seems to prove the stability of the v9.14 application.

Thanks Matt

No, it's just the scheduler's self defense algorithm (to filter failing hosts from ruining entire batches).
You don't have to do anything, it will be lifted from your host in 24 hours automatically, please be patient.

Yes, if you have a host with a mix of Pascal and non-Pascal GPUs, you are going to have problems. Time to go shopping!

Should it take the Beta Tasks 15 to 20 minutes to download a file that is less than 3MB?
It is on every task that downloads.
I ask because the wait time between download are causing my CPU task to start up and then go into waiting status.

Or is the Servers being over burdened buy us members.

And now, we wait for a regular batch of short WUs

When there will be good news about long WUs ??

Just had a short WU on my 1080 go for 9 hours and it was at 50% done. the GPU was idling. Other Pascal units had worked flawlessly. I aborted it and gave it a new one and it works again.

Same problem here. 76% for long time, GPU and CPU idle.

From previous experience with other apps and other projects, simply suspending that single task for a few seconds (using BOINC Manager), and then resuming it again, is often enough to get it running properly. A bit like the procedure I'm using on GPUGrid stalled downloads at the moment...

The problem is the download on a 800kb file will stop for up to 10 minutes before it starts download, as this happens newer downloads start up for this project and the stall on the newer files and stop the first one from downloading.
I sat and watch this for an hour and while I can have 4 tasks running at the same time I can maybe get 3 to run so what happens is the first four completed but now new tasks have completed their downloads.
While this happen a new CPU task will start up and then the Downloads from here completes and then put the CPU task in Waiting to Run.
I have 14 Waiting to Run CPU Tasks because of this.
It seems that you can only download the number of task your can run and you are no longer allowed to have any tasks ready to run.....This is the main issue here.
For the 130Kbs that I see for download speeds we should be able to have 2 or even 3 time the number of tasks to be able to run.
This way as a task complete the next one can start and not have wait 10 or 15 minutes for the next task to be downloaded to even start.

Is what I do not know is this because it is a Beta Task or is this now the normal way this project is going to work.

The download speed and stalls are common problems on this project.

This project limits the number of tasks that may be allocated by the Scheduler, but that's a different issue from the number of files which can be downloaded - which, as Thomas Brada says, is the subject of discussions in other threads.

Well, I got my GTX 1050 Ti - last Asus 'Expedition' model (designed for 24/7 running) in the shop - and I've just fired it up.

I must say, all your hard work last night paid off - it was an absolute breeze. Installed hardware (tool-free case), installed driver, attached to project (new host) - was assigned two tasks, and both downloaded without a hitch. Even the 139 MB cufft64_80.dll only took 37 seconds:

28/10/2016 18:30:24 | GPUGRID | Started download of _cufft64_80.dll
28/10/2016 18:31:01 | GPUGRID | Finished download of _cufft64_80.dll

OK, it's probably a good idea to attempt that sort of thing after everybody else has switched their machines off for the weekend, but still impressive.

Possible small bug-ette to investigate next week: I tried suspending a 'short' (CASP 5ns) task, to let an 'even shorter' (CASP 1ns) task run instead and overtake it in the queue. Although BOINC v7.6.33 issued the 'preempt' instruction, acemd.914-80 just kept on running.

I don't think that's critical, certainly not in the short term.

Still I have problems with downloading cufft64_80.dll ... it takes several attempts and even hours to get it. But I cannot stop that by hand, as it would probably lock me out again for another day by the self defense algorithm. (sigh)

and then you click the 'retry now' button...

Actually, the "suspend/resume" route is for when you happen to notice it while the download is still 'active' - though making no progress. If you've already reached 'backing off', just retry it without the extra work.

I began crunching after 914 it seems, and haven't had any trouble, except for one small detail, but I believe this is more of a general issue with ANY computing task:

I asked one task to suspend and it was showing as suspended in the BOINC manager, but continued to crunch for perhaps 45-60 seconds.

Are you using the 375.63 or .70 driver? Some other DC projects and games don't like 375.63 at all.

Well....... Boinc says

GPUGRID: Notice from BOINC
Your app_config.xml file refers to an unknown application 'acemdlong'. Known applications: 'acemdshort'

If that's the GTX 1070 machine you attached to the project for the first time on 24 Sep 2016, it won't have been assigned any long-queue tasks yet, until this testing is complete and the application is released on the long queue as well.

Your BOINC client only learns about acemdlong when is is assigned the first long task and downloads the application. The notice will go away at that point, and can be ignored in the meantime.

The download speed and stalls are common problems on this project.

Yes they are and why they haven't been fixed is beyond ridiculous and reflects very badly on this project IMHO.

Message 45036 - Posted: 30 Oct 2016 | 10:09:32 UTC - in response to Message 45033.

20nm tasks are in the Long queue, but not for Pascals.
The Pascals need the 64bit Windows 9.14 (cuda80) application which hasn't been uploaded into the Long queue yet. See the Apps page.

As the Pascal app is working as good as the Maxwells and previous generations (at processing the short queue tasks) I don't see any reason not to upload the cuda8.0 app into the long queue too.
While you could make overlap/parallel run arguments for analysing the performances of the Pascals against the Maxwells for scientific acceptance that shouldn't preclude the use of the Pascal app in the Long queue now. Qualifying the apps would be retrospective anyway.

Just had a short WU on my 1080 go for 9 hours and it was at 50% done. the GPU was idling. Other Pascal units had worked flawlessly. I aborted it and gave it a new one and it works again.


Same problem here. 76% for long time, GPU and CPU idle.


I still have this problem with maybe 10% of WU. Only restart helps - they are starting from 0% and crunching without problems. But I cant manually control it 24/7...

Have you tried suspending the stalled task and then resuming it? POEM used to do the same thing and suspending/resuming usually got the task moving again.

I had this same problem at least twice now. I tried suspending and resuming (task and/or project) and that didn't seem to work. Only a restart gets the task moving again.

Has anyone received a 20ns task on a Pascal GPU?
I'm asking because even though the 20ns tasks are in the short queue I'm getting only 1ns and 5ns tasks on my GTX 1080.


I'm crunching a 20ns short right now, and completed another one a couple of hours ago on my GTX1060.

That's one which was created and placed on the short queue five days ago, but the original volunteer never returned it: WU 11817373
But it'll help the scientists (and watchers) by showing them how the new application behaves on the longer tasks.

It sounds like the card downclocked itself. It happens when you (or the factory) overclock your card too much.

Hello,

These apps work fine on my 1080 FE with a light OC (+135 Mhz).

But, I have a problem with the downloading :
The download freeze and I need to suspend the network activity and after put network activity always enabled to finish the download.

I would like to add that the short queue will run out of work very soon if all the GTX 10x0 cards are receiving work only from this queue.

Task suspend/resume works
GPU suspend/resume works

Casp0X_crystal_ss_1ns take around 10 sec until it suspends but manager wait until it stopped. Might be checkpoint it would like to reach before stop do to it size.

Got only one error for unstable, do to it´s time i did other things with gpu when it was running so may not be task fault for that error.
All other went fine.

(Since release of beta 984 valid and 1 error)

I've kept an eye on it during the day, and task suspend/resume works. I had to do this at least four times.
My GTX1060 is always between 60 and 65° C and when the task is running it usually produces a 60-70% load on the GPU.

I just caught outta the corner of my eye something Trend-Micro picked up when starting a Pascal WU.

I tried to see what pinged Trend and where it copied it to but I can't seem to find in all the settings what it was and where it went. Hopefully Trend isn't coming up with false positives and it doesn't affect results.

Anyone else getting this on Antivirus programs? I may need to dig deeper and see if I can tell Trend to ignore anything coming / going outta my BOINC directories.

Looking at my GPU with GPU Tweak from Asus and it looks like my GPU is only working at 60% of his capacity. I have a GTX1070 Strix. Feel Free to contact me if needed.

Seems to be working for me (GTX 1060) but GPU usage is only at 70%? I don't know if this is related but in BOINC it says Running 0.975 CPUs and 1 Nvidia GPU. I have a 4 core CPU so it should be using 1 full core no? I tried changing in GPUGRID "Maximum CPU for graphics" to 100 but no difference.

Have you tried suspending the stalled task and then resuming it? POEM used to do the same thing and suspending/resuming usually got the task moving again.

I did, it didn't help. Only restart does the trick.

It sounds like the card downclocked itself. It happens when you (or the factory) overclock your card too much.


It is not overclocked. And the behaviour is really strange. Yesterday in the morning my computer started long WU. After 4h it was 60% done, remaining time 3h with some minutes. Everything great to this point, right? But two hours later it was still 60% and remaining time was just "-- --", GPU at 250Mhz and IDLE. So I restarted BM, WCG started, GPUGRID "waiting to start" for about an hour. So I restarted computer, it was crunching again from 60% but this time no problem. Until today when I saw that the same WU has 90% processed, remaining time "-- --", GPU idle... Restarted computer again and it was ended and uploaded.

https://www.gpugrid.net/result.php?resultid=15494663

Reported with run time of 14h, in reality it was almost 25. I will update the driver to the newest version cause I don't have any other ideas.

I've received a task for my 1080 on a Win7 x64 host. Currently at ~57%GPU usage and ~35% power level. About 70% complete after a little over two hours. The card has not boosted and is running at base clock of 1708MHz.

Manually managed the hanging download issues and ran a few tasks. 4 short tasks completed in 464-537 seconds but another listed as a short task took 13,764 seconds. What's up with that?
GTX 1060 at stock settings, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, driver 367.35.

Upon further inspection it seems that the longer running task had 5 million steps where the other 4 had only 250k.

Looking at your task's stderr.txt there's no "exit" messages, so it seems that either the ACEMD app stops (crashes), or it gets disconnected from the GPU. Do you have multiple user accounts on that PC? Switching users could cause such behavior (as the GPU is switched over to the another user, while the BOINC manager still runs as the original user).
Is there anything suspicious in the BOINC manager's event log?

I am the only user of this PC. And it happens even when I am working on it. Driver updated - no change, GPU clock lowered by 200Mhz - no change. Folding@home works flawless. I have no idea what else I could do.

The newest I could find for Linux is 367.44. I'm currently using 367.35 and the completed tasks I have show v9.14 (CUDA 80) as the app. Don't know if the newest driver would make use of 8.5 but since I've had too many gnarly experiences with video driver updates I'm not going to play guinea pig on this one. Maybe someone who has already updated to 367.44 can chime in.

Windows at times has video driver timeout issues with XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1 but that was with ATI cards. If you're using Win10 I have no experience with that OS. Never heard of it happening with Nvidia but that doesn't mean it couldn't. Try this and see if it helps. If it doesn't work it should not affect your computer in any way but to be super safe and eliminate "murphy's law" you could image your drive before you start if it would make you more comfortable. I've shown this fix many times to others without a single problem reported.

Copy and paste ALL of the text below as is into notepad. Rename the file timeoutfix.reg(or another name if you like). Now double click on it. You'll be prompted about adding files to the registry. Just click yes on any that appear. Now restart your computer. If your strange behavior stops then it was a timeout issue. If not then it's something else. If it doesn't work you can always go back and delete the reg entries if you're not comfortable leaving them there.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Watchdog]
"DisableBugCheck"="1"

8.5 hasn't been released yet so it must be a typo, otherwise the app version would be different too.

nanoprobe reported using the 367.35 driver with his GTX 1060 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
I've just installed 370.28 in the hope it will work with a 1060-3GB tomorrow...
OT I'm seeing more GPU utilization variation with the 370 driver than with my previous 361.42 driver on my 970 (85 to 92% GPU utilization).

NB: 375.10 Beta (Linux) brings support for the GeForce GTX 1050 & GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. On Windows 7/8.1/10 (x64) you will need the 375.63 or newer driver if you have a GTX1050 or 1050Ti (according to NV; though I wouldn't be surprised if slightly older drivers worked fine for the GPUGrid apps).

With extreme difficulty. If you look at the coproc data transmitted to the server in the sched_request_www.gpugrid.net.xml file, you won't find any mention of the GTX980 card. And if the server doesn't know it exists, then it can't make any tailored allocations to suit the lower spec card.

I was present in Budapest in September 2014 to hear David Anderson's keynote talk A Brief History of BOINC. As slide 52 of workshop_14.pdf indicates, the 'Coprocessor model' is one of the "things we need to change" - this is what they mean. But they haven't done it yet.

The GPUGrid apps read the GPU's directly, so in theory they can check if they should be running on said GPU (Pascal or earlier) or if a different app should be used (cuda 6.5). Just asking if that (or something similar) was done for the cuda 8.0app.

Unless the app can be supplied as some sort of 'fat binary' combining Cuda 8.0 and Cuda 6.5 paths, or as a separate 'launcher plus two alternative child apps', that doesn't get us any further forward.

Even given that the 8.0 app knows it is commencing to run on a card which "should" have been given a 6.5 app instead (which in effect it is doing now, by crashing), the BOINC framework provides no mechanism for transferring the task, either to run on a different card with the same app, or on the same card with a different app.

As the app's 'Pascal only'; Matt, I'll asume mixed NV generation GPU setups will Not work!
An app_config based GPU/'queue' exclusion won't work because the cuda 8.0 app's populated all queues & app names are <name>Long runs (8-12 hours on fastest card)</name> and so on, they don't specify the CUDA version.

I don't have any mixed Pascal/Maxwell hosts, but I do have three GTX 970/750Ti combos. The 750Ti cards are a bit weak for the normal long queue cards, so I exclude GPUGrid from them completely, and let another project make use of them.

Linux app is live now.

Please add the SWAN_SYNC=1 option to the new Linux app, as there is a significant performance loss without it on the Pascal cards. The proof of it that there is no GTX 1080 has beaten my GTX 980Ti's yet on the performance chart, not even my own GTX 1080 (which runs under Linux now).

This could be an app issue but I cant help you with that. I'm suggesting things that you can check/try. In the past there have been power issues (downclocking) that were corrected with new drivers and sometimes worked around using tweaks.

Suggest you check your systems Power settings (sleep/suspend, hybrid sleep, suspend pcie, screen saver). Also, what are your resources settings (Device Profile settings) at WCG? I know you can set them to the following:
Power Saving: Set my profile so that my computer's power settings can take effect
Minimum Impact: Set my profile so that it will have a minimal amount of impact on my computer.
If you change profile settings there, they apply here too (assuming your device is on the same profile), but if you have any local Boinc settings these will override your project profile settings.

Linux app is live now.

Please add the SWAN_SYNC=1 option to the new Linux app, as there is a significant performance loss without it on the Pascal cards. The proof of it that there is no GTX 1080 has beaten my GTX 980Ti's yet on the performance chart, not even my own GTX 1080 (which runs under Linux now).

After a couple of workunits processed, I've observed that my GTX 1080 (without SWAN_SYNC) could be up to 7% faster than my GTX 980Ti depending on the batch, but it's usually slower.
Still I think there's a significant performance loss without SWAN_SYNC under Linux, and I can demonstrate this on a PABLO_SH2TRIPEP_L_TRI workunit:
Task 15543899 12.016 sec GTX 980Ti @1367MHz _ _ _ _ _ WinXP, SWAN_SYNC on
Task 15569769 10.528 sec TITAN X (Pascal) @1531MHz (?), Linux, SWAN_SYNC off (87.6% of the GTX 980Ti, i.e. 14.1% faster)
However, it should be much faster:
Let's compare the theoretical computing indices of the two GPUs:
GTX 980Ti: 2816 CUDA cores * 1367MHz = 3.849.472 TITAN X (Pascal): 3584 CUDA cores * 1531MHz = 5.487.104 5.487.104 / 3.849.472 = 1.425
-> 42.5% faster i.e. the runtime should be only 70.16% of the GTX980Ti's (8.430 sec)
If I assume that the Pascal is boosting to its max (~2000MHz) than it's even worse:
GTX 980Ti: 2816 CUDA cores * 1367MHz = 3.849.472 TITAN X (Pascal): 3584 CUDA cores * 2000MHz = 7.168.000 7.168.000 / 3.849.472 = 1.862
-> 86.2% faster i.e. the runtime should be only 53.7% of the GTX 980Ti's (6.453 sec)

Still downlaoding after an extra night. Basically I cannot crunch GPUGRID tasks at the moment.

Thanks but does not help, Chrome stops downloading at 2.3/139MBytes.
I have 0 issue with internet.
Maybe that Norton blocks it ?

You should try a download manager, or I can send you the file in 5-10MB pieces if you give me your email address.

That is the issue everyone is seeing with that file. I was able to get it over 7 minutes with BitComet, an http/torrent downloader as it made 20 connections to the file and was able to split up the timeouts better getting it in 20 pcs and putting it back together. That was with mirrors off too, so the file might even exist on mirrors of some kind as well as the one location I pointed out? Worth a try with a download manager for sure.

I've put the file to onedrive. You can access it here. You should unzip it to C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.gpugrid.net .

Maybe that the new boinc 7.6.33 is creating problems with the GPUGRID server ?

BOINC still tries to download the file, there are several files were it keeps its download status, probably why it continue to download it ...
deleting the _ version does not help

Edit: I selected RESET project for GPUGRID in BOINC and it does not try to download anymore, that should be ok now.

There are a number of threads concerning the slow downloads here. It has nothing to do with BOINC versions. There are also several threads on the lack of work available. Take a look at them. There's just not enough work and the monthly crunchathon or whatever it's called just makes things a lot worse. All it does it take the work from the people who regularly crunch here.

Well, that is already the case. We just have the problem of being undersupplied with tasks, but that is a very general one.

Still the same issue...
Everything works fine, then GPU utilization drops to 0-1%, time of crunching in BM is going on but % is not. I have to manually restart BM. Time gets shortened, GPU is utilized properly until next "lock". I'm really getting pissed by this because I cant check every hour if everything is going fine. Luckili not every WU is affected.

I have updated driver and tested other ideas from this and the other topic. No change. In the meantime I was using my GPU at folding@home, not even a single problem. So I don't thing that there is something wrong with my card.

They would will notice if there any issue to workunits kain.
looking at task that failed there are other hosts that got problem to run them.

Like: e1s78_ubiquitin_20ns_77-ADRIA_FOLDPERFCO_crystal_ss_contacts_20_QTN_1-0-1-RND6722

And if we look at server status there are a few that have above 90% failed. So wait it out and let them take a look at it.

# The simulation has become unstable. Terminating to avoid lock-up (1)

This is the same i got for my host and change drivers may not help to this but you could try to lower clock below stock to see if that helps.

Got one failed and workunit now say "Too many errors (may have bug)"
https://www.gpugrid.net/workunit.php?wuid=12372296

Can´t compare Folding@home and GPUGrid, would be better to run stresstest to see if a card get any issue.

It is completely different issue, this "locking" tasks don't fail. They get validated but need to be controlled manually. It was reported by me and not only me many times.

Where do you see anything similar? As I said - tasks affected by my problem don't fail and get validated.

"similar" as in application have stop but boinc manager would indicate task running as it still are running in background.

This is will happen if is get´s "Terminating to avoid lock-up". So your host are in that stage as in pic show. Task active but graphic cards have stopped running. So task still active with application but something made usage to gpu to hold. Could be that it fall back to last checkpoint or use cpu to finished last section instead of gpu.

Most surely it will end to "Terminating to avoid lock-up" if you let keep running. The runtime are rarely the same until task fails. Some host brake it after few sec (same as to old task to your host) and some could run it over an hour.

The issue could be the same and your 0-1 gpu usage indicate to this. So this is not related to Pascal app as other users show in the thread in post.

Most of cases could be that gpu are unstable to clock/driver.

Kain:

In GPU-Z, on the "Graphics Card" tab, what is your value for "GPU Clock"?

According to the wiki:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_10_series
...
A GTX 1060 running at reference clocks will show 1506 MHz (Wiki has this for "Base core clock").

If your GPU-Z shows a higher value, then I suggest installing MSI Afterburner, then lowering the Core Clock until GPU-Z says 1506 for GPU Clock. Then retest to see if your tasks run with better stability.

Did a project reset which downloaded a few images but no app executable.

This setup have been crunching without problem on all other available boinc projects with gpu apps.

What did I overlook?

Mysteries of Boinc, a reboot did solve the issue; no driver update, nothing else.

Seems happily crunching short wus with cuda80 app.
