GPU gets WU only if its slots get removed and added again

Postby TomasNovak4200 » Wed Apr 22, 2020 11:39 am

Good day,
I have noticed that my GPU gets some WUs a day and then will get no new ones.
Although this issue can be resolved by removing the GPU slot from the Configure - Slot tab, pressing Save and finnaly adding the GPU again.
Then the GPU will get WU almost immediately. Is there any way to resolve this issue ?
Thank you and here is my log after the GPU is restarted and succesfully gets the WU:

Re: GPU gets WU only if its slots get removed and added agai

Postby Joe_H » Wed Apr 22, 2020 5:21 pm

No need to remove the slot and add it again, just Pause folding on that slot for a minute or two and then restart the slot.

In general, there are more requests for GPU WUs than the servers can currently provide. They are working on adding capacity. In the meantime it can take a while for a request to be accepted and a WU assigned. The client backs off an increasing amount, with the 7.5.1 client that can end up being hours between requests. So if the time between requests gets longer than a couple hours, the pause and restart resets the timer.

Re: GPU gets WU only if its slots get removed and added agai

Well I havent as much of a success with pausing and restarting as with removing it from slot and adding it again.
In fact I had my GPU slot paused for a day or two before I resolved it as I already described it.
But it seems to go smooth from the time of posting this topic originally.
I will update if anything will go astray.
I thank you for a fast answer though :)
