1) Message boards : Suggestions : Disabling GPU (Message 629)

Hello,

I was wondering if it would be possible in the future to give an option to disabling GPU computing. I am running BOINC on a laptop and if I get workloads that are GPU plus CPU then I am afraid of overheating it. I am using Tthrottle to help reduce temperature, but the problem is that if I use that then the compute time on both CPU and GPU become very slow and thus takes longer to complete both.

Thank you

Hello,

Does anyone know of a way to run Science United with just CPU after project selection? The reason is that I am using a laptop and running both CPU and GPU produces a lot of heat.

As an example I would want to run the CPU SETI@home tasks, but not its GPU tasks. The only way I found is to exclude the project, which I don’t want to do.

Thank you

I think that it depends on the projects themselves.

I have been using Raspberry pi 3 on Universe@home project and I know SETI uses them as well. I also use Raspberry Pi Linux version.

I think that should be able to install BOINC from the command console and then after installed it should be as simple as attaching a client and seeing what work units you will get.

Hello,

I checked my account and see that I had worked on a couple of units for Rosseta@home however I see that 8 units failed while only 4 passed. I am not sure why because I had submitted work units to this project before with no issues. Is there a way to find out why they failed? Since ScienceUnited creates its own id I am not sure how I would see why it failed.

Does anyone else have the same issue?

Hi Doneske, I am curious as to how your account manager is working. I recently added the Sceince United account manager and have WCG running along side of it. I seem to be getting some work units, but then nothing for along time.

I was also wondering how you installed the most current version of BOINC on your Ubuntu. I am running Ubuntu as a VirtualBox, but he Ubuntu repo seems to have an older version of BOINC. This might be a simple question but since you said you were able to install it I wanted to ask how you did it.

I am excited about ScienceUnited so I am hoping to see it get more traction.

Hello,

I have been BOINC for a while to contribute to World Community Grid and Universe@home projects. I recently added the Science United manager and was wondering if I should remove the Universe@home project. Would having both Science United and Universe@home attached cause conflicts? Also if I complete tasks sent to my through Science United vs Universe@home would the point go to a new account created by Science United or by my old account with Universe@home?

Thanks in advance.
