QuadroFX3800 & 9800GT folds but unknown

Postby bambihunter » Sat May 04, 2013 9:39 pm

I have a small folding farm finally going and everything is folding along quite well with the new client and I am getting around 250k ppd out of the "farm". I did find where it appears the old ATI 4850's are no longer supported (no biggie). However, I have 2 video cards out of 15 cards that will fold, but they always show "unknown" under base credit, estimated credit, estimated PPD, and timeout. These do appear white listed cards according to the GPU-Z ID:
Quadro 3800FX is 10DE-05FF and has 192 cuda cores and the 9800Gt is 10DE-0614 with 112 cores. They appear to be folding, completing units, etc. This ONLY happens to these two cards and none of my others including similar Quadro 2000's and 4000's. Is there anything to do to make it show this info? It isn't that critical, I just like to know my PPD vs watts drawn to make sure things are worth running.

One off-topic question, can I completely turn off the web control option by simply going to Configure > Expert > and changing open-web-control to false instead of true?

For a GPU to work, it must be whitelisted and must be detected by V7. This is pretty clearly delinitated in the first page of the log or in the system tab of FAHClient. Posting that segment here is probably a good idea if they don't appear to be folding.

The code running on the FAH servers is not identical. Some servers are still running old code which does not download the deadline and points information to the client. Tha feature was added to servers that are running the newer server code versions.

Thanks for your reply Bruce, I thought about doing that but wasn't sure. If this isn't enough, let me know and I can grab more/rest of it.

Re: QuadroFX3800 & 9800GT folds but unknown

You have three whitelisted GPUs, two of which are the oldest support NVidia type (commonly called G80-series, though it's more than just that) and one which is a newer NV type called Fermi. All three should fold PROVIDED the client knows which one is which. Unfortunately when you mix two types, the V7 client is known to number them differently than expected and there's a good chance you're assigning Fermi class WUs to one of the G80s and vice-versa. To fix this, you have to manually change the cuda-index values.

Here's a post from one of several people who have fixed this sort of problem: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=24186&p=241818#p241818

I am pretty sure I have tried these by themselves in a system, but it could perhaps have still had an old config. I have read your posts Bruce many times and greatly respect both yours and 7im's advice so I will give that a try but it will probably be next weekend. Do you think it is causing any detrimental effects for FAH? I don't want to be uploading junk, if it would be better I could just shut these down for now. In fact, I have another of the 430's I could swap one of them for.

Along the same topic, does anyone have a FULL flag list for v7? I found this https://fah-web.stanford.edu/projects/FAHClient/wiki/FahControl#Advanced and it seems to cover most, but doesn't seem to be all. I used to be decent with v6 command-line options but have been only barely minimum folding for the last few years.

In most cases, there are data verification/checking going-on so any error should be caught pretty early. However, if you are worried, here is a simple test you can do:

1) Pause all GPU Slots
2) Start GPU-Z (http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/SysInfo/GPU-Z/old/)
3) Select the GPU Quadro FX 3800 in GPU-Z and go to the Sensors tab
4) Fold the corresponding GPU Slot in FAHContrl by right-clicking the slot 00: gpu:0:GT200GL [Quadro FX 3800] and selecting fold from the menu
5) If the Sensor's tab report a GPU Usage of 90% or higher, than it would seem that it mapped correctly
6) Pause that GPU Slot
7) Repeat step 3 to step 6 for your other GPUs
8) If everything matches, fah has configured everything correctly so start each slot one after another and verify it from GPU-Z

You can swap your 430 with the lowest performing GPU. I think it might be the Quadro but you can check it from the PPD values.

If you want to get all the client options, what you can do is to change the verbosity level from the default of 3 to 5 and it prints all the values in the log file. Do note that we recommend the default of 3 as it is easier to troubleshoot.

Re: QuadroFX3800 & 9800GT folds but unknown

While the client is not running you can run "fahclient.exe --help" from a command line to get the list of all client switches. This list is different than the verbosity 5 option list, and is more like the list we have used for previous clients. However, except for a few rare exceptions (client-type, next unit %) all the default values are the recommended values.
