Hello
if you want to continue using the Gerasim server, it would be better to keep applications for Linux and Mac.
thank you


With the help of SerVal I dropped a batch of tasks on the Gerasim server. Currently just for windows cpu. The tasks are for the remainder of the subfield 3 search. Those users that are more interested in sf3 can get tasks from Gerasim - the only caveat is that you get Gerasim credit instead.

I think of this as a trial period, to see how it goes. Numberfields is not going away anytime soon, and Gerasim can run the sf3 tasks in parallel to the sf7 tasks currently running on NF. I will keep this up for as long as Gerasim and/or SerVal allows.


THANK YOU Eric!!

Hi all.
I added an application for nvidia opencl to NumberFields-Gerasim.
Theoretically, everything works, but Gerasim does not send tasks for Nvidia.
This is my second unsuccessful attempt. :(
.
To find out what's going on, I need to run Gerasim under a debugger, and look at the scheduler request / replay .
My suggestion is to count the current set and start investigating after Eric has all the results from the current set.
.
Resume:
The sooner we finish Gerasim's work, the better. :)


It sounds like you need to talk to the User Petri33 of the Gpu Users Group Team and see if he can help you, he's optimized several Projects Nvidia apps so far, Linux only though.

The problem is integrating the existing gpu app into the Gerasim server. Optimizing the CUDA or OpenCL code is a different problem altogether, not to mention a very difficult problem - it would take a guru of the highest order to improve the current code.

The first video card in the list of computing accelerators :
https://gerasim.boinc.ru/users/viewTopAccelerators.aspx.
.
There are no errors. In 2-3 days I will transfer control of the "Get Decic Fields (nVidia)" application to Eric Driver.
(adding tasks, credits, etc.).

Wonderful! Computing must go on! :)

Message 3471 - Posted: 10 Mar 2023, 17:24:19 UTC - in response to Message 3466.  

At Gerasim, SerVal has integrated the apps for nvidia gpu (on windows), amd gpu (on windows), and linux cpu. These apps are now processing WUs for subfield 3.

On Numberfields, I am sprinkling in some WUs for sf6, in order to get some updated timing information. This will help in creating the new batches for sf6 to come later in the year.

On Gerasim, is it possible to include a GPU application for Linux? Thank you very much.

There doesn't seem to be much interest for linux in general and it's a lot of work to create and utilize the apps at Gerasim, so my first instinct would be to say no. Sorry!

If an application for Linux existed it would attract more volunteers,maybe....if it's too much work.....thanks anyway

You have made it to August 2023!

That is great!

They should see the community support and at least give basic support (like storage space).

I just recently joined so I am not sure if this has happened or not.

But clearly, the project has worth since it still exists.

Ever since I heard that this project was lacking support I've done a big push to get a lot of WU's completed.

I've been pushing for the rest of my team mates to get involved as well and we've pushed it quite a bit.

I'm always happy when a BOINC project runs out of work as it's been completed
