Client not sending WU
I have an issue with my GPU folding client : sometimes when the WU is almost finished, it will stay at 99.99% completed, there are 4 seconds left, but the WU is not sent. Card is a Radeon HD 7850. Stopping the folding and restarting the PC does not solve the issue. Any ideas? So far the only way to make it work is to remove the gpu slot and re-add it again, but in this way I loose my processed WU.
The server could always be down. How long has this been happening?
Today is the second time it has happened. I removed the client for a few hours this afternoon, and re add it, and it downloaded a WU right away.
What version of the folding client are you using, and what driver number for your card?
Does this happen with several types of work projects, or is it always the same work project number?
I vaguely remember this being an issue some time back. I don't fold with gpu's currently, but there was a software problem. I thought it was fixed, but maybe not.
I'll check the folding forum.
Some ATI drivers/cards have had problems with regular wu's. The suggestion from folding forum is that you switch the slot over to advanced wu's.
Client version is 7.3.6 driver is CCC 13.9.
Always the same WU, 8900.
I have the same issue with a DC2 7970 and the card is 10000% rock solid at the 1100mhz I'm running it at. Every 2-3 days I get this exact issue. Some have said that the folding@home client should get restarted every 36 hours or so. I'm going to set up a script to do this. I'm running 13.10
My card is also Asus.
Hmm, interesting. In the past I had an issue with an Asus card as well. System restart required at all? That should have fixed it as well. The Asus that I was working with before was a Nvidia card though.
On the folding forum, I found several posts pointing to the problem being in the project 8900, which goes across multiple runs and generations of wu's, and all cards are affected.
In your log, you might see something similar to this:
This has been a troublesome project, going back at least as far as June. Their advice is to delete this wu.
They say some drivers have had to be updated for this project, but that only affects some gpu folders, and the wu isn't sized improperly.
