I have never ran into that error before.  Since it is SETI, my first thought is that it is something on the server side.  Did a fair amount of searching, and didn't really ever find anything relavent.  :headscrat

 

Not much help , and hopefully you figured it out.

Code:
<cc_config>
  <log_flags>
  </log_flags>
    <options>
      <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>

      <exclude_gpu>
       <url>http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/</url>
       <device_num>0<device_num>
       <app>period_search</app>

      </exclude_gpu>

    </options>
</cc_config>

I'm not getting any units though.
Code:
8/3/2016 5:25:09 PM | Asteroids@home | Not requesting tasks: don't need (CPU: ; NVIDIA GPU: ; Intel GPU: )

Edit: Eventually some units downloaded and started aborting on the 1070 again.

 

I would lose the app tag from the exclude gpu flag.  That way there shouldn't be any chance of the 1070 getting tasks. 

 

<exclude_gpu>
       <url>http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/</url>
       <device_num>0<device_num>
</exclude_gpu>

 

You may also need to verify that the 1070 is indeed device 0.  Occasionally that can get mixed up, but generally it is not as goofy as F@H.

Removing the app tag would stop any project from running on that device but it would allow me to make sure I get the Device ID right. I'll have to try that tonight. Its the 1st card installed and the 1st card listed in GPU-Z. I checked the co_proc xml file or whatever its called and both cards are listed the same for Cuda. For OpenGL the 1070 is listed as Device 0 and the 970 as device 1. Asteroids is using Cuda of course.

The app flag, within the exclude_gpu flag, is just for specific applications within a project, and is really only useful on a project like PrimeGrid that has multiple different GPU applications.  If there is no app flag, the exclude_gpu flag will just stop all GPU apps for that specific project from being sent to the excluded GPU. I believe Asteroids only has a single GPU application. 

 

I use the exclude GPU flag without any app designator on Collatz, Moo, and POEM.  This works flawlessly, and I am still able to get work from those projects on the other GPUS in my systems.

Thanks. Eventually I got it to work, don't know if it was my side or theirs. I upgraded boinc and a bunch of other stuff so it could have been me.

Yeah, I think I'll survive the Einstein@Home drought... Still have 98 PMPS XT cuda (GTX 980 Ti) and 8 OpenCL tasks (Intel HD 4600) alongside 89 cpu tasks. Then again, BOINC has been bouncing back and forth between PrimeGrid and SETI the past day or so, so that's probably why I still have GPU work units for Einstein@Home. I apparently ran out of Areceibo GPU work units 14 hours or so ago. I did download a fairly large batch back on July 30th though, so that's probably why there are still so many (that and like 200 PrimeGrid tasks of varying types, and 150 or so pogs WU's, etc)

I DO want to Boinc on the 1070 but I can't on Asteroids so I want to split projects between GPUs on the same PC. I'll have to try different device IDs on collatz tomorrow.

Trying to decide if I should put more resources towards asteroids or seti. Anyone have any opinions? I have 3 750ti and 1 980ti on seti now so I am talking strictly cpu.

As long as you have the master URL for the project you want to exclude it should work. That is how I did it in my machine that had 7970s and a 290. I used the exclude_gpu flag on MilkyWay, so I could crunch MilkyWay on the 7970s and Collatz and POEM on the 290.

This is what ended up working. Since the 3770k has the iGPU I had to include the type flag. Device 0 ended up being the 1070 and Device 1 is the 970.
Code:
<cc_config>
 <log_flags>
 </log_flags>
 <options>
  <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
  <exclude_gpu>
   <url>http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/</url>
   <type>NVIDIA</type>
   <device_num>0</device_num>
  </exclude_gpu>
 </options>
</cc_config>

Einstein on the 1070 + iGPU and Asteroids on the 970.

VGTU on 3 threads of a 3570k.
