11) Message boards : Generalized Fermat Prime Search : OpenCL Genefer now available for ATI/AMD GPUs! (Message 69240)

No worries, thanks!

So, is there a way i can insert the config file into the slot folder, or would i be better to abort the task and wait for another? (it hasn't progressed passed 0% yet, it keeps being pre-empted by other and tasks in my list as the manager decided it needs to high-priority clean them out)

Cheers, Andrew

And finally, to answer myself:
if (*fp || *if_bench || *if_bench2 || *if_bench3 || *if_test || *if_residuals || *if_limits || *if_version || strcmp(platformName, "")) { fprintf(stderr, "-boinc used with incompatible option (filename, -b, -b2, -b3, -t, -r, -l, -v, -V, -nvidia, -ati, or -amd).\n"); boincFatal(GFN_INVALID_ARGS); }


I must not specify -amd/-ati as this is mutually exclusive with BOINC mode and will error.

From the stderr txt:
geneferocl 3.1.2-7 (Windows 32-bit OpenCL) Copyright 2001-2013, Yves Gallot Copyright 2009, Mark Rodenkirch, David Underbakke Copyright 2010-2012, Shoichiro Yamada, Ken Brazier Copyright 2011-2013, Iain Bethune, Michael Goetz, Ronald Schneider Command line: projects/www.primegrid.com/primegrid_genefer_3_1_2_7_2.09_windows_intelx86__atiGFNWR.exe -boinc -q 12040^4194304+1 --device 0 Priority change succeeded. Running on platform 'NVIDIA CUDA', device 'GeForce GTX 760', version 'OpenCL 1.1 CUDA' and driver '326.80'.


From the sched_reply:
<app_version> <app_name>genefer_wr</app_name> <version_num>209</version_num> <file_ref> <file_name>primegrid_genefer_3_1_2_7_2.09_windows_intelx86__atiGFNWR.exe</file_name> <main_program/> </file_ref> <platform>windows_intelx86</platform> <plan_class>atiGFNWR</plan_class> <avg_ncpus>0.170704</avg_ncpus> <max_ncpus>0.170704</max_ncpus> <flops>35417298943.728439</flops> <coproc> <type>ATI</type> <count>1.000000</count> </coproc> <gpu_ram>402653184.000000</gpu_ram> </app_version> ... <command_line>-boinc -q "12040^4194304+1"</command_line>


If i modify the command line in the reply with "-amd" will that cause the task to pick it up? (i went and looked at the assembla repo) Or does it need to be specified elsewhere? (don't want to go full app_config as i have some SoBs slowly ticking away i don't want to accidentally nuke)

In the old dev thread the question was asked about "amd and nvidia in the same machine, which does it choose". I was unable to answer at the time as my machine was still being built.

The answer is that amd opencl wr decides to run on the nvidia card.
On this machine http://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=408638, the amd card is in pci slot 1, and has the display attached. The task started running with --device 0, and chose the nvidia card.
BOINC manager shows the task as requiring an ATI, and continues running other nvidia tasks at the same time.

Logs will be forthcoming when i get home from work.

Regards, Andrew

If anyone has BOTH an Nvidia and an AMD GPU in the same system, I'd like to know which one GeneferOCL chooses.


In a week's time (hopefully), i'll be able to answer you. I was building a machine with nvidia for genefer and AMD for other projects, and parts are still on their way to me.

Are any Macs getting WUs? Mine seems to report "AXV1.0" not the "avx" the Linux people are mentioning here
