Message 49940 - Posted: 18 Jul 2018 | 5:05:25 UTC

Since Windows GPU units are on hold for awhile, I decided to try CPU units. I have "use CPU" check yes (top and bottom of preferences) and "Quantum Chemistry" checked "yes". Server status shows ~10,000 Quantum Chemistry units, yet I keep getting this message:

7/17/2018 9:18:35 PM | GPUGRID | No tasks are available for Quantum Chemistry

Am I missing something??

If I am not mistaken, the CPU tasks work on Linux only.

Well, that would explain it! But how am I supposed to know that? I haven't seen anywhere on the site that shows what applications are available for which systems -- or even what applications are available period, for that matter!

The standard BOINC format works, but isn't linked anywhere.

https://www.gpugrid.net/apps.php

It's a bit of a mess at the moment, because the Windows GPU apps have been removed. Two older Windows CPU (Quantum Chemistry) apps are listed, but I think they failed to work and have been discontinued. There is a Windows Beta QC app shown, which may still be active.

If you're familiar with the standard suite of boinc tools from any other project, you can type the addresses manually - doesn't have to be a link.

Maybe your Linux kernel is too old. Can you upgrade it?

This depends on your distribution. On mine (OpenSuSE) I have a Yast tool which allows me to make a software update, but most of the times I get the updates from SuSE which asks me if I want to install them, unlike Windows 10.

I see a list of projects that are supposed to be working in Windows 64 bit platforms. However for quite some time now I am not getting any tasks.
I reset the project and there are still no tasks for Windows 64 at least for my computer. Any ideas whats going on? No CPU and no GPU tasks. Just not tasks are available.

When GPUGrid's Server Status says that there are no Unsent tasks of a given Application, that means that the scientists have no work available for that Application. At the top right of any page, click Server Status.
https://www.gpugrid.net/server_status.php

Also, if you want to see what platforms a given app is available for, then check the Apps page, here:
http://www.gpugrid.net/apps.php

Sometimes, our CPU and GPU resources will have to work on work from other projects.

It's really that simple.

I don't know if, during this summer, they are working on windows cpu version of QC. They solved the problems with windows gpu app, instead
