Hi,

It seems like yesterday GCWSieve CUDA tasks started taking longer to finish (they now take about 3x as long as before). My GPU (9600M) now sometimes finishes them in time, but other times can't. So, some tasks fail with the dreaded "Maximum elapsed time exceeded" error, such as here: http://www.primegrid.com/result.php?resultid=352825518

Can you please extend this time limit (by at least 3x)?

(BTW, why does this time limit exist anyway? Isn't there already a deadline for task completion?)

Thanks.

This limit exists to prevent the task from running infinitely (who knows what bug might happen).

We changed the estimates which caused the issue; the changes have now been reverted, which means that for new tasks the limit will be higher. Old tasks will have to get filtered through the system. Some hosts do process them just fine, some do have the problem.

Cool, thanks!

That's what I thought, but I was wondering why the "deadline" feature alone isn't enough to solve that potential problem. Though, I guess the time limit will catch that issue much quicker; maybe that's the main purpose of it. Anyways...

Would you please extend further the time limit for the GCW Sieve CUDA tasks? This would allow for a couple of my old 8400 GS cards to continue to be productive as second cards. They are currently timing out at just over 6 hours and around 70% complete.

I sure would appreciate being able to keep 'em crunching.

Thanks.

Just upgraded to the 3xx series of drivers from nVidia and I've been getting this "Maximum time limit exceeded" message on most, if not all my gcwsieve WUs.

The time varies in how soon the WU gets aborted.

Running with BOINC client 6.12.34
