I have a 13000 and 13001 showing up properly for my two HD 7870s; no special configuration necessary, though I did do a "Download Projects From Stanford" update.
GTX 970 (i5-3550), GTX 980 (i7-3770); Win10 64-bit; FAH 7.4.4

@Harlam357 - Has the way Failed WU's are recorded changed?
A number of people have seen issues with the start up of certain P9406 WU's - in an earlier version of HFM.net I have running on one machine, this is flagging these as Failed, with the new HFM.net, they do not seem to be flagged.

The AS finally gave me a P13001 (for the GTX 650 Ti), it's showing up normally. No manual update of the Project List done, I don't know if it performed one on its own.


Later edit- P13001's on both GPUs now, displaying normally.

Hmm, so why is my system different? 13001 is still showing up (both current and history) as 0 points! Think I'll head over to the HFM forum.

Grasping at straws- have you tried re-starting the client to see if that kicks anything into life?

Following Bruce's suggestion, here's the two HFM monitors showing the Failed unit difference (Old one on the Left, new on one the Right).

Try changing the name of ProjectInfo.tab in case it has become corrupt:

In HFM click on Help and View HFM.NET Data Files
Close HFM
Right click on ProjectInfo.tab and rename it to something like oldProjectInfo.tab
Start HFM

It should download the projects info automatically. If it doesn't you already know how to use the option under Tools to do so manually.

Thanks for that -- but it produced the same result again! Still no points shown for 13001.

AH! Found it. I had (long ago) set HFM to download psummaryB -- which excludes 13000 and 13001. I think the reason was to include beta projects. Since projects are added to the HFM db but apparrently not removed, a download of psummary is necessary to catch projects which came and went as beta while HFM was AWOL. Now I guess I return to psummaryB and add new projects as they enter beta.

I don't normally display the Completed and Failed columns, but in response to this query I enabled them to see if they showed anything helpful (they didn't).

But either they don't work properly anyway or I'm misunderstanding what they display:

One of the clients was running a P9500, the Completed column showed 23. That sounded low, so I filtered the History for that project on that client and it gave a count of 243. The client finished a few minutes later and, as it happened, picked up another P9500. But the Completed column stayed at 23.

I wondered if it were "Completed in the last <some number> days" but that didn't fit with the other clients, all of which were showing numbers much lower than I would expect...

That was yesterday; this morning it's running a P9007 and showing 29- History says 203. So I wondered if it meant, in effect, "Number of different Projects processed", but the Benchmarks viewer for that client gave 47 different projects.

Am I missing something?

Solved it, sort of.

F10 (Toggle Completed Count Style) brings up numbers that agree with History (Completed WUs for that client, regardless of ProjectID), but I still can't work out what criteria it was using for the previous display!

Failed column is full of zeroes like DocJonz, but that's not conclusive as I don't know what it would have displayed on the previous version.

The "previous display" should include the completed and failed work units since the last time that slot was restarted assuming you're running HFM 24/7.

Ah, I hadn't thought of that… can't be bothered to chase through all the logs to check in detail, but the numbers don't look unreasonable for that criterion.

Many thanks :)

Update was easy and went fine. It's been running without issue since then ... :)

Now I need to monitor it over a long period and a large number of completed WUs to see whether the high CPU usage bug is gone or not.

@Harlam357,
thanks for the update! Just a small question regarding the history-viewer. Before, I could get the latest WU finished by sorting on date, but now I need to first go to page two. Anything changed since last version, or have I missed something? I really want my last finished WU to be first in that list, that's basically what I use the history for: look at my latest finished units, and I guess a lot of other people also do this? Anyways, would be nice if the defualt query sorted by completed date (last first) :)

Why not use psummaryC and get the best of two worlds? ;)
