#6 Re: Linux on ARM

Post by Dirk Broer »

A word of warning: having ARM Applications on a project does not mean that you'll be able to run them on your board, -unless it is WEP-M+2.
It looks like some developers test it on systems with either more RAM than 4GB, or only test it with one WU running and completing and then declare it OK for the wild.

Cases:
Drowning your Odroid-N2+ (six cores, with 4GB RAM in my case) in the various 64-bit ARM apps leads to a complete standstill in a week.
Same for a 4GB Rock Pi 4B (six cores, 4GB).
Same for two 4GB Raspberry Pi 4's (four cores, 4GB).
Same for a 4GB Jetson Nano (four cores, 4GB).
I didn't even try with my 2GB Jetson Nano....let alone with my 1Gb Raspberry Pi 3's!

Stupid thing is that the 32-bit control group (an octa-core 2GB Odroid XU4, so a mere 256MB per core) has no problems at all running the 32-bit ARM/Linux apps.

#7 Linux on ARM: "The return of the 32-bit squadron"

Post by Dirk Broer »

That finding was the start for "The return of the 32-bit squadron".

As the Odroid-XU4 effortlessly crunched its way through Universe@Home, SiDock@Home and Asteroids@Home, running all these three projects along each other without any problems, I paid closer attention to it. And while Asteroids@Home -the very same project that crashed half the 64-bit squadron- paid s*#t, SiDock@Home paid better and Universe@Home appeared downright generous with credits!

So the experimental department quickly refurbished the ASUS Tinker Board, to crunch only Universe@Home. And where WEP-M+2 in the past paid a daily 900-1000 credits, Universe@Home now does around 9000! So I decided to re-launch my 64-bit Cortex-A53 Raspberry Pi 3B's for that purpose too -and with the same success, credits per Watt-wise.
Based upon this I converted my 64-bit Cortex-A55 Odroid-M1 to be able to crunch 32-bit apps too, and it is now on its way to best the Tinker Board in its daily scores!
Now my 32-bit Cortex-A15 BeagleBone-AI is at it too, and the 64-bit Cortex-A72/A53 Rock Pi 4B is waiting in the docks, as are the 64-bit Cortex-A57 nVidia Jetson Nano's. I might even want to re-launch the 32-bit Cortex-A9 Hummingboard and the 32-bit Cortex-A5 Odroid-C1....
Only time will tell which system is the most suited to crunch Universe@Home, but 32-bit is no handicap here -yet.

The result figures are still climbing after a relapse of the Universe server, but here are the figures for the 32-bit squad as per today 20240108:
  • BeagleBone-AI (dual core Cortex-A15): 4,035 credits/day
  • Asus Tinker Board (quad core Cortex-A17): 8,086 credits/day
  • Odroid-XU4 (quad core Cortex-A15/quad core Cortex-A7): 8,923 credits/day
These values hover a bit for the Tinker Board and the XU4 (between 7800 and 9100), but the BeagleBone-AI is still climbing slowly.
I quitted crunching Asteroids@Home on the Odroid-XU4, so it only crunches SiDock@Home and Universe@Home now.

Longer crunching 64-bitters, still on the rise and climbing a tad faster than the BeagleBone-AI (especially the Odroid-M1)
  • Raspberry Pi 3 (quad core Cortex-A53): 2,772 credits/day
  • Raspberry Pi three (quad core Cortex-A53): 4,421 credits/day
  • Odroid-M1 (quad core Cortex-A55): 9,354 credits/day
The Raspberry Pi 3 previously crunched SiDock@Home but the Odroid-XU4 is much better in that, so the Pi 3 went to Universe@Home.

and here for the last converted 64-bitters, that began later with Universe@Home and climb still faster:
  • Raspberry Pi 400 (quad core Cortex-A72): 3,409 credits/day
  • Raspberry Pi 4 8GB (quad core Cortex-A72): 3,480 credits/day
  • Jetson Nano 2GB (quad core Cortex-A57): 4,059 credits/day
  • Jetson Nano 4GB (quad core Cortex-A57): 6,680 credits/day
The 2GB Jetson Nano was the lastly converted and much celebrated at the experimental department, as it now combines -thanks to Muhammad Yunus,
IoT Engineer, Software Developer & Machine Learning Enthusiast- both CUDA and OpenCL for its GPU. For the time being it is as useful as a 100 TOPS NPU/TPU for BOINC running Linux/ARM (or even Windows), but who knows....
The two Raspberry Pi 4's are the latest additions to the Universe task force

Post by Dirk Broer »

As SiDock@Home is presently without work the Odroid-XU4 now runs Universe@Home exclusively, so the credit tables have been shaken up.
I also keep converting 64-bit ARM SBCs to take 32-bit work, so the list is getting longer and longer.

The top-3 ARM systems, pure credit-wise:
  1. Odroid-XU4 12,446
  2. Raspberry Pi 4 8GB 12,273
  3. Raspberry Pi 400 10,911
The top-3 ARM systems, credit per core wise:
  1. Raspberry Pi 4 8GB 3,068
  2. Raspberry Pi 400 2,728
  3. Odroid-M1 2,413
The top-3 ARM systems, credit per Watt wise:
  1. Raspberry Pi 400 1,679
  2. Odroid-M1 1,399
  3. Raspberry Pi three 1,234
The top-3 ARM systems, credit per core per Watt wise:
  1. BeagleBone-AI 456
  2. Raspberry Pi 400 420
  3. Odroid-M1 350
