Average run time for gpu tasks, app_config and Linux?
« on: February 04, 2021, 11:55:12 PM »

Hi team,

Iíve only been running Einstein for a couple of days recently so bear with me. Is there a way for me to look up all the users with the same GPU or CPU and see how long some of their tasks take to complete? Iím wondering if my gpu tasks are taking abnormally long and would like to look at other peopleís run times. I also found it weird that in the boinc manager it had 0.9 cpu+1 gpu for each task. Is that the same for everyone? Iím running an asus rx560 and from memory gpu tasks take about 30-45 minutes.

Because it needs a cpu I edited the app_config XML file for my cpu project to only use 3 of my 4 cores. Iím not sure how I will deal with leaving a core free for Einstein when Iím doing multiple cpu projects though (I believe I read that just setting the number of cores in the boinc manager to 0.75 wouldnít actually work, maybe I am wrong tho)

Also Iím running Windows 10 currently but plan to switch to Linux, is that an advantage for this and other projects?

I also got 22 invalids and only 9 valids, so hopefully, I can sort that out, maybe my gpu is just too lame. Edit: I see that there are issues for everyone for the O2MDF app https://einsteinathome.org/content/discussion-thread-continuous-gw-search-known-o2md1-now-o2mdf-gpus-only?page=74

In Einstein click Community>Statistics>Top Computers. You will have to look for computers of your type. Cumbersome but that is the only way I know.

No idea if Linux is an advantage over Windows sorry.
It's been a while since I've looked at E@H.
If you are crunching other CPU tasks, you just have to accept one or 2 less cores to crunch with.
