From my understanding (which may be very incorrect) the PPS sieve has 2 versions (a cpu and gpu version).
Is there any way to only get the gpu version as I'd like my cpu to work on the llr?

I asked the same question read this thread and do as instructed and it will work perfectly... i just said not to use gpu and set up a home and work pref. and made sure on my home(one i wanted to use my 8800gt on) i clicked send other subprojects... sounds weird but it works so read thou this thread and you should have your answer.

Is there any way to only get the gpu version as I'd like my cpu to work on the llr?


Very simple:

1) Make sure both "Use ATI/nVidia GPU" and "Use CPU" are checked.
2) Select the LLR sub-project(s) you want to use on the CPU.
3) Do **NOT** select the PPS-Sieve project.
4) Check the "Send work from any subproject if selected projects have no work" box.

This will send your selected projects to the CPU. Since the projects you selected aren't available for the GPU, and you have "Send work from any subproject if selected projects have no work" selected, BOINC will send your GPU anything it has available, which happens to be the PPS-Sieve project.

Thanks to both of you, it's working for me now (I feel dumb for not searching for an answer very well though, oh well).

Just to be clear, you can run PPS-Sieve on the CPU or the GPU, but not both. Correct? Also, what about the other sieve projects. Can you continue to run them on the CPU or do they need to be deselected as well?

If you want to run PPS Sieve on CPU & GPU, you don't need the trick - just make sure you select the subproject and that CPU and the appropriate Nvidia/ATI GPU is allowed.

The other sieves are currently CPU only - just select them like normal.
When additional sieves get GPU support, the same tricks as for PPS Sieve can be used.
The only difficulty is that you can't choose which GPU subproject you want with this trick.
If you're happy to do CPU work too - again, just select the subproject and you're done.

Thank you Vato for clearing that up for me. Is there anyway to verify that I am getting work on my GPU?

If you are running GPU tasks your BOINC client, on the "Tasks" tab, will show something like "Running (0.02 CPUs + 1.00 NVIDIA GPUs)" in the "Status" column for them. Of course if you're running other GPU projects, this may not show, from time to time, for PrimeGrid. If you *never* see that status, then something is still wrong.

What Gary says is the most direct way of checking this.

Another (less realtime) way to check is to look at the tasks list (from your account page).
Check to see if the application column ever says something like:

Proth Prime Search (Sieve) v1.37 (cuda23)

or if you're using app_info.xml:

Proth Prime Search (Sieve)
Anonymous platform (ATI GPU)

If those tasks are validated and have given you credit, you know your GPU is doing the biz.
CPU tasks would not mention cuda or ati.
