1) Message boards : Wieferich and Wall-Sun-Sun Prime Search : Any idea on WU times CPU vs. GPU? (Message 151631)
Posted 279 days ago by Profile rcthardcore
Job cache is too small for this project. I am using an RTX 3090 FE GPU and each work unit takes about 4 minutes and 45 seconds to complete. Ever thought about greatly increasing the job cash for us high end GPU owners?


What exactly do you mean by "job cache"? Most of the queue and buffer controls that affect job flow are actually set by the user rather than by the admins.

If your computer isn't requesting work, that's a setting on your side. You may need to look at the messages in your BOINC log to see whether or not your computer is requesting work when it contacts the server.

If it is requesting work and you're not getting any, unless you're trying to grab an ungodly number of tasks (which is a terrible strategy and you shouldn't be doing that), then the problem is likely that you have run out of wingmen and all the available tasks are from workunits where you've already run a task, and are thus ineligible to get another task. If this is the problem, there's little that can be done about it other than convincing other people to run WW or to diversify your task selection.



I was referring to the NUMBER(amount) of tasks I receive each time I request more tasks. I have my settings at MAXIMUM (10 days' worth of tasks). So your response to my original post is irrelevant. The problem is on THEIR end, not mine.

Each one of these work units take about 4min 45 sec to process on my RTX 3090 FE GPU. Was wondering why I can only get about 4 or 5 workunits at a time when requesting more workunits. The faster GPUs should be allowed to get more of them at one time. I have my prefs set to get 10 days worth with 10 days in reserve, yet I only get usually 4 or 5 at a time. This is something that the devs need to look into.

Awesome decision! I support it 100%! I just wish it was mandatory for ALL BOINC projects and not just PrimeGrid.

There are still GCW Sieve tasks still available here at PrimeGrid. I'm currently running 8 of them.
