I am attempting to overclock my GIGABYTE G1 Gaming 980 ti using MSI Afterburner. I already uninstalled GIGABYTE's OC GURU II, as it was conflicting with Afterburner.

My issue is that my Power, % never reaches 100%, and GPU Usage stays at 99% running the Heaven Benchmark.
According to GPU-Z, my Power Consumption stays at about 85% TDP.

Core Clock is +130MHz
Memory Clock is +130 Mhz
Core Voltage is +10 mV
Power Limit is 122% (Never reaches 100%, or goes higher than 70 degrees)

I'm attempting to leverage "grid_m10-1q" profile (Nvidia GRID M10 card)... Followed doc to install drivers (had to reboot after installing kernel modules - not noted in doc). nvidia-smi looks good, showing driver version at 440.87 (v10.2) and GPU name of "GRID M10-1Q". systemctl status nvidia-gridd shows Quadro-Virtual-DWS license acquired successfully. However, when I use FAHControl to add the gpu slot, it's being identified as "GM107GL [GRID M40]" and all received work units fail with "ERROR:exception: Error initializing context: clCreateContext (-2)" and "WARNING:WU00:FS00:FahCore returned: BAD_WORK_UNIT (114 = 0x72)"... I've played around with the indexes in the slot config, but nothing I select appears to work. Would love to put some of these GPUs to work overnight :) Any recommendations?

Hi Justin.

The error you're seeing is due to the GPU not being able to run CUDA workloads on the 1Q profile.

When you're using the M10 card, you need to use the 8Q profile if you want to do GPU compute jobs with vGPU. The M10 does not support compute workloads unless you dedicate an entire GPU to that VM. The reason for this is in the hardware on the Maxwell series cards. vGPU requires Pascal-series (P4, P40) or newer cards in order to run CUDA workloads.

Hey Sean, Thank you for the explanation. I do remember this being a limitation of our M10 cards, but didn't put two-and-two together. Makes sense. Thanks!

Hi, I've go the FAH appliance running fine, but I don't want to leave it running all day long. I've already created a cron job (cronie) to Start/Stop the client but that stops the web interface too. I would ideally like to Pause/Unpause from the cron job like you can in Windows. Is this possible on Photon OS?

I think you are looking for this information: https://github.com/vmware/photon/issues/554

Personally I manage all of my FAHClients remotely with FAHControl from a single location. Scheduled start and stop is not a feature of FAHControl though.

I have been running the F@H appliance on my old MBP via Fusion since ver 1.0.1. I have upgraded my Fusion and my F@H appliance and am now getting an error. I will add it to the Bug Log.
