I run 4 instances of PPRNet client and one more for GENEFERCuda since I have Geforce 560TI.
But whenever I stop client with CTRL+c it says something like "is genefer broken" and when I restart client it cannot find checkpoint for start.
I use latest 4.37 PRPNet package under windows 7 sp1 x64.

The message is OK, but the missing checkpoint is a different issue. It might be that you are stopping it before it writes the checkpoint for the first time, or it could be a different issue.

Crun-Che, is the problem only with restarting GeneferCUDA? Does it work correctly if it's not interrupted? Or does it not work at all?

You're running GFN262144, right? Your 560 TI should be able to complete one of those in less than an hour and a half. That's how long it takes my 460 to do one of those. If you let it run for 90 minutes, what happens? Does it complete the WU? Does it pass the initialization phase and star counting down? It would look something like this:

The steps to go number should be changing approximately once every four seconds, or maybe a bit faster.

Or is the problem that it runs fine if you let it complete, but it just can't be restarted without starting at the beginning?

If it's running fine if you don't interrupt it, it's probably some kind of installation/folder privilege problem that's preventing it from writing the checkpoint file. If it's not able to complete a WU, maybe it's that memory organization problem Scott Brown identified with the 550 TI. Perhaps it affects the 560 TI also.

I had the same problem with 4.3.7, it runs fine if you just let it run. Problem is only when I need to stop and restart it. It can not resume from the checkpoint file. It does find the checkpoint file, but it claims that the genefer version that created the checkpoint file "Geneferxxx" is not compatible, and it starts the work unit from the beginning ("Geneferxxx" = Genefer+"some strange ascii characters").
Same happens with my GTX275 and GTX285 cards in Win7_64 and WinXP_32, and GTX480 in Linux_64.



4.3.6. works fine.

So I will try 4.3.6 :)

My 560 Ti complete in 1:15 hours and all is ok if you leave from start: then one WU is over, second is started.
So I find solution. I clear checkpoint ,and all start ok

Yes, I went back to 4.3.6 also. I was running it on Mint Linux 64/GTX 470. It just does not work after you try to restart after a "control c".

Mark,

The bug would be in GeneferCUDA rather than PRPNet, right? Perhaps just rolling back to the older version of GeneferCUDA would be sufficient?

I never switched to 4.3.7, not because of this bug, but because it seemed that the newer version of GeneferCUDA included in 4.3.7 was slower than the version in 4.3.6, based upon what I was reading on the forums.

This implies a bug that I introduced between 4.3.6 and 4.3.7. I'll have to look into it.

Also note that geneferCUDA was updated as well. It would be interesting to see if the geneferCUDA in the 4.3.7 package produces the same error with prpclient in the 4.3.6 package.

In the 4.3.6 PRPClient package:

    GeneferCUDA - Version 0.97 - based on Genefer 2.2.0 (Windows and Linux64 only)
    GenefX64 - Version 2.2.0 (Windows x64); Version 2.2.1 (Linux x64, MacIntel x64)
    Genefer - Version 2.2.0 (Windows, MacPPC); Version 2.2.1 (Linux, MacIntel)
    Genefer80 - Version 2.2.0 (Windows); Version 2.2.1 (Linux, MacIntel)

In the 4.3.7 PRPClient package:

    GeneferCUDA - Version 1.01 - based on Genefer 2.2.1 (Windows, Linux64, MacIntel)
    GenefX64 - Version 2.2.1 (Windows x64, Linux x64, MacIntel x64)
    Genefer - Version 2.2.1 (Windows, MacPPC, Linux, MacIntel)
    Genefer80 - Version 2.2.1 (Windows, Linux, MacIntel)

I also recall an issue specific with the Windows build of geneferCUDA 2.2.1. Are these errors happening only on Windows machines?

Does that mean that GENEFER CUDA cannot check that numbers?

Message 45570 - Posted: 23 Dec 2011 | 23:39:34 UTC - in response to Message 45567.

This implies a bug that I introduced between 4.3.6 and 4.3.7. I'll have to look into it.


Mark,

The bug would be in GeneferCUDA rather than PRPNet, right? Perhaps just rolling back to the older version of GeneferCUDA would be sufficient?

I never switched to 4.3.7, not because of this bug, but because it seemed that the newer version of GeneferCUDA included in 4.3.7 was slower than the version in 4.3.6, based upon what I was reading on the forums.

Mike


How much slower?

I don't remember exactly, but I think it was a few percent. You would have have to find the post about it. I may have commented about it, so searching for just my posts within the last 30 days or so should find it. I'll post a link if I can find it.

Ok, found it:

This message has the benchmark timings.

Looks like about a 10% slowdown, which is pretty significant.

Of course, you can just run the benchmarks from both versions of GeneferCUDA yourself and see what you get on your hardware.

Does that mean that GENEFER CUDA cannot check that numbers?

Yes, but the round off error is more typical as the application reaches its testing limits. For N=262144 this is around b=815k.

Other GPUs have experienced this but the cases are so infrequent that we haven't been able to establish a pattern yet.

Yes I can confirm it : I also got few % better result with old GeneferCUDA ( Geforce 560 TI) that uses Cuda 3.2. Will wait until first WU is finished to see how difference is really big :)
Thanks for tip Michael
Thumb up for that!

Message 45590 - Posted: 24 Dec 2011 | 8:35:01 UTC - in response to Message 45568.

This implies a bug that I introduced between 4.3.6 and 4.3.7. I'll have to look into it.

Also note that geneferCUDA was updated as well. It would be interesting to see if the geneferCUDA in the 4.3.7 package produces the same error with prpclient in the 4.3.6 package.

In the 4.3.6 PRPClient package:

    GeneferCUDA - Version 0.97 - based on Genefer 2.2.0 (Windows and Linux64 only)
    GenefX64 - Version 2.2.0 (Windows x64); Version 2.2.1 (Linux x64, MacIntel x64)
    Genefer - Version 2.2.0 (Windows, MacPPC); Version 2.2.1 (Linux, MacIntel)
    Genefer80 - Version 2.2.0 (Windows); Version 2.2.1 (Linux, MacIntel)

In the 4.3.7 PRPClient package:

    GeneferCUDA - Version 1.01 - based on Genefer 2.2.1 (Windows, Linux64, MacIntel)
    GenefX64 - Version 2.2.1 (Windows x64, Linux x64, MacIntel x64)
    Genefer - Version 2.2.1 (Windows, MacPPC, Linux, MacIntel)
    Genefer80 - Version 2.2.1 (Windows, Linux, MacIntel)

I also recall an issue specific with the Windows build of geneferCUDA 2.2.1. Are these errors happening only on Windows machines?



4.3.7 package in Linux machine seems to be working fine.

in Windows:
Genefercuda from 4.3.7 does not work with PRPclient 4.3.7.
Genefercuda from 4.3.7 does not work with PRPclient 4.3.6.
Genefercuda from 4.3.6 does work with PRPclient 4.3.7.

Here is the restart of Genefercuda from 4.3.7 with PRPclient 4.3.6. Win7x64 GTX275 (with debuglevel=1):

Genefercuda from 4.3.7 does not work with PRPclient 4.3.7.
Genefercuda from 4.3.7 does not work with PRPclient 4.3.6.
Genefercuda from 4.3.6 does work with PRPclient 4.3.7.

Points to a Windows GeneferCUDA - Version 1.01 - based on Genefer 2.2.1 issue and not a PRPNet issue. Thanks for confirming this.

I compiled the source for GeneferCUDA_1.03 from mersenneforum and have problems too.
Checkpointing does not seem to work. The checkpoint-file has ever a size of zero.
Maybe this causes the hieroglyphs in the message:
"Checkpoint saved by genefer CUDA. CUDA This version cannot restart with it
Checkpoint saved by genefer ╠²↑. This version cannot restart with it" ???


[add]
Here is my source of genefercuda.1.03.1.tar.bz2 with a linux64-executable for sm_13, sm_20 and sm_21. It was compiled against Cuda4.0.
I solved only all compiler warnings about undefined identifier, not referenced variables and even more messages with "result of call is not used" in version 1.03...
The sources for the older version GeneferCUDA_0.98 or the new llrCUDA_0.80 in mersenneforum produce the same problems...

Sorry folks, we have made no progress in resolving this issue. The Windows geneferCUDA in the 4.3.7 package has been returned to the 0.97 version until we can get this issue corrected.

As for the slowdown, it appears to be caused by compiling it under CUDA 4.0 as opposed to the previous CUDA 3.2.

If anyone is able to help with these issues, please let us know.

Message 45604 - Posted: 24 Dec 2011 | 15:37:00 UTC - in response to Message 45603.

As for the slowdown, it appears to be caused by compiling it under CUDA 4.0 as opposed to the previous CUDA 3.2.


That's what I feared.

Is there any benefit to using CUDA 4.0 instead of 3.2? My guess would be that it has support for newer cards not supported under 3.2, perhaps correcting that funky memory problem with the 550TI. The slowdown might be due to that fix. Lots of speculation there, but if it's correct, it may be worthwhile compiling a separate version for the 550TI. That won't work long term, of course.

For now, does anyone have a link where you can you download the CUDA 3.2 tools? I could only find the 4.0.

Shoichiro, do you have an idea why checkpointing in 1.03 (and maybe 0.98 too) does not work?



@All
Does anybody have or found a better [HOW TO] Setup CUDA Compiler on Code::Blocks for integrating CUDA in Code::Blocks???

Shoichiro,

What was the reason for switching to the CUDA 4.0 toolkit? I've done some tests, and the 4.0 toolkit produces code that's about 10% slower than 3.2:

Both were compiled from the same source code (0.99), except for changing #define CPU_TARGET "CUDA3.2" to #define CPU_TARGET "CUDA4.0" and building with the 4.0 toolkit instead of the 3.2 toolkit.

Mike

P.S. Thank you for the great work creating GeneferCUDA!!!

I compiled the source for GeneferCUDA_1.03 from mersenneforum and have problems too.
Checkpointing does not seem to work. The checkpoint-file has ever a size of zero.
Maybe this causes the hieroglyphs in the message:
"Checkpoint saved by genefer CUDA. CUDA This version cannot restart with it
Checkpoint saved by genefer ╠²↑. This version cannot restart with it" ???

Sorry folks, we have made no progress in resolving this issue. The Windows geneferCUDA in the 4.3.7 package has been returned to the 0.97 version until we can get this issue corrected.

As for the slowdown, it appears to be caused by compiling it under CUDA 4.0 as opposed to the previous CUDA 3.2.

If anyone is able to help with these issues, please let us know.

Please see.
