Hi Lionel,

Excellent work, man your RAC will skyrocket now.

Might be wise to replace to 780ti's with something newer that can run the special app.

There is a version of the special app for the 780s but its a few years old now.

Some of the lads over at SETI might be able to help you out though.

Cheers and excellent crunching

It looks like cuda 10.1 will run on anything with a compute capability above 3.0
The 780 TIs are 3.5 so cuda 10.1 should be OK
Soon find out......

I'm running 1WU per GPU.
Completion time is circa 1:55 (1 minute 55 seconds)
I went to 2 WUs per GPU but they took longer on average so went back to 1 per GPU.
Later on I went through some of the documentation that was with the optimised app and it said that 1 per GPU gives the best result......
The only thing I needed to do was modify the app_info file for cuda 10.1 which is in the 418.56 nvidia package.
So far things seem to be going well.
My next task is to start to look at the settings for the GPUs and see if I can tweak them to reduce run times.
Generally it looms like I'm heading back to six figures per Linux box.

For anyone that only crunches Seti and it's not there main driver, they should seriously consider going linux, implementation isn't that difficult.

Hi Dataman

Hope you find the answer you are looking for.

I am running Linux MINT 19.1 Cinnamon edition and it has the ability to add programs to the startup procedure, even allows you to add a delay as well.

Since my box does only SETI crunching and some ATLAS crunching and some Video watching and kept simple.

Cheers

don't mind the challenge, it keeps the brain working
now considering the move of the other 2 boxes
they're a bit older (kind of Q6600 vintage) with 780 TIs in them so should be a bit of fun

Decided to take the plunge and moved 2 boxes to Linux  Shocked
Went to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Installed Seti optimised app, running cuda 10.1
Am happy with result Dancing
Crunching WUs in 1:55, with RAC rising from circa 35k-40k to (your guess is as good as mine but it looks as though it will be circa 100k)

Now to get everyone onto Linux ... mmmwwaaahhhhhaaaahhhaaaahhhaaa



Have fun it is not as user friendly as Windows but keeps the brain working.  You can find most answers on GOOGLE and quote Ubuntu 18.04 in the search.  If you run into problems post here as well we might be able to help, although I use google most of the time when I am stumped.

No Jugnut.... I'm a bit bitter about the pricing of new cards. A mid range card is now quite expensive. Ridiculous really. Top end consumer cards like the 2080Ti and just horrendously priced.
I think the 1660Ti looks like a good, efficient card and the 2070. DEFINITELY don't bother with the 1650. Thumb Down

Thanks for the info Daniel it's always good to hear first hand about how individual cards behave while crunching Thumbs Up  Yea same here no problems with any of my Nvidia cards.  But still I need a new card or two and i'm still trying to figure out best bang for buck for the latest round of cards.  One things is for sure one way or the other new cards won't be cheap.

Cheers  Hi there!
