So, it seems my PC is not allowed to run 'short runs' or 'long runs' applications on its NVidia GPU while also running "Molecular Dynamics for CPU" application WUs on its 8 CPUs.


The opposite - if your machine can run "short" or "long", that's all it will get. These are our main applications and contribute most to our scientific work.
The other applications are of secondary importance, and I don't want them cutting into the return from short & long.

Just to clarify... is the behavior "I will use an NVIDIA GPU and you can't tell me not to" ... a behavior/limitation of the application executable, or is it a behavior/limitation of BOINC scheduler/API (which David A might be able to fix)?


It's both the application, which will blindy use any and all GPUs it finds on a host, and also the old version of the BOINC scheduler we have in production on GPUGRID, which knows not of OpenCL applications.

But I've got 8 CPUs that can also be helping you!!!

I think you're thinking about this wrong. We're looking to give MORE resources to you, NOT LESS.


There are additional limitations of the application and scheduler that mean it's not currently possible to drop the app onto a machine with an Nvidia GPU and tell it not to use it.

Some other project will have to benefit from our short-comings.

I agree, that this application should be sent to a host, even if that host has NVIDIA GPUs and 0 AMD GPUs.

Why can't we do this?


Because I want the machines that can be running ACEMD to be doing so. That work is worth more to us.

Why are MD WUs prohibited...


Because your machine has an Nvida GT640 GPU.

6) Message boards : Server and website : Upload Problems (Message 40531)
Posted 3347 days ago by GPUGRID Role account
1) Clients that are configured to use the HTTP presentation of GPUGRID shouldn't now be being redirected to HTTPS (for a while last night they were, just to see what would break)

2) If uploads you are having uploads fail, this is probably because the receiving process on the server will only run for so long. I'll need to know not the %age completion but the walltime that the upload had been processing for.

3) 301 redirects are not a problem - the client knows to follow them.

I've improved log-in speed. You'll now no longer get a list of your other projects on your account page.
