WCG run-time hours
Monday, February 13, 2012 2:51 PM
How many World Computing Grid runtime hours do you actually get per day?
Curious, as I run 24/7 on 8 threads, which by my understanding should give me
8 days runtime per day. looking at my stats, I'm getting just over 3??
I run 2 gpus at .4 cpus each, so even allowing the GPUs 1 thread each, I should still
be getting in at least 5-6 days runtime per day.
Am I missing something, or are these gpus taking a lot more CPU runtime than they
My best days, running 24/7 come in at 7 days 8 hours (about as much as possible I think) and
6 days 8 hours. I know on those 2 days I was not running any GPU.
Reading what I just wrote, I'm thinking that even though the GPUs indicate they use less than half a thread each, they have the effect of using 2 threads each!! what with queuing/CPU priority and all.
What are other peoples experiences?
