Am I doing something wrong with SETI or does it just not prefer nvidia cards? My 1080 is taking about 20 minutes per unit. The temperature is very low on the card and GPU utilization is fluctuating all over the place. Is there a way to optimize it to make my card work harder?

I used to use Lunatics when I crunched seti.

Lunatics v0.45 - Beta6 for Windows


Looks like it works with Pascal thumb.gif

Goal achieve in NFS. That was quick.

Not sure another will be possible. Next team is 7.2mil ahead.

Running 4 tasks per card seems optimal so far with a 80% gpu usage...

I tried running 5 and 6 tasks at a time but it just resulted in memory failures.

Ouch, that Lunatics program had a terrible impact on my run time, taking much longer to run. I will need to figure out what I did wrong when I get home Sunday night.
Is there a cfg file specific to seti to modify that forces it to run multiple seti units? or is it not project specific?

The config file is in the app_info.xml provided by Lunatics. It's kind of a pain to modify (lots of ctrl+f and cut/paste) It also has some old code in it that uses the v7 version which is no longer used...which results in log errors.

I might upload my cleaned file that uses 4 tasks and no v7 if anybody is interested...or maybe make a tutorial on how to set it up.

I noticed that most of the top computers still use it so I'm assuming it's still relevant.

Maybe hold off on the Lunatics app.blushsmiley.gif

I haven't run Seti properly since August for the [email protected]!-Event and I did a quick search of the top computers and saw most of them using it before suggesting it to @k4m1k4z3 (sorry man)

It can be a real pain to setup and it also looks like the performance gains are marginal to what they once were.

I think that a bunch of the lunatics optimizations have been pushed out in the standard v8 apps.  I haven't used it recently, but I think the regular app now does a pretty good job of keeping a GPU fed.  My 480 is doing about 16k ppd on SETI in Linux.

Not sure I've seen a more disconnected set of project preferences with respect to the application names. Looks like the apps are named after Lattice Sieve e then 14 or 15 in Hex so E or F. But then 16eV5 is 5f or some reason. rolleyes.gif

lasieved - app for RSALS subproject, uses less than 0.5 GB memory
lasievee - work nearly always available, uses up to 0.5 GB memory
lasievef - used for huge factorizations, uses up to 1 GB memory
lasieve5f - used for huge factorizations, uses up to 1 GB memory

The apps I see running now are 14e, 15e and 16eV5 which seem to be the last three listed in project preferences.

Edit: Well I had disabled the last to get 14e and 15e. Then disabled the ef to get 14e but still got 15e with the 1st two so I've got no idea now. No 14e ready to send to back to v5.

I was trying to figure that out. I need 14 and 15 for Wuprop stars and didn't know which one to disable to stop getting 16's.

And on that note WUProp is being wierd. In Boinc Manager I was getting this:
Quote:

This project is using an old URL. When convenient, remove the project, then add https://wuprop.boinc-af.org/

So I changed it to https://wuprop.boinc-af.org/

Now I'm getting this:

It's telling me to change it back.......I can't win.rolleyes.gif
