On average I have been requiring 5-20 retries per night. Percentage-wise I estimate:
T4: 95%
P4: 1%
K80: 1%
P100: 3%
V100: 0% so far out of a few hundred tries.
Probably just timing and availability. Most of the time I look for T4s... several days ago I literally only got P100s and K80... after a while I just gave up. Next day I got all T4s with no retries...

Now; 90 minutes ago and 180 minutes ago ... 35 consecutive attempts and all T4's.

Some day I might determine what time of day is best for each type.

Lucky you (all) ! :envy: (edit: huh? no green face?)

I didn't see a GPU at all for a while. I may have upset them with something...
SWMBO laptop still gets T4s regularly (she is google certified educator, and the laptop uses her "legal" account, maybe this matters?) but they only last 3 hours every time, sometimes less, and I only have access to it two times per day when at home, so the rest of the time is somehow lost. We are negotiating to install anydesk or something, but we met some resistance

Try 10 or 15 times; wait an hour ... rinse/repeat.
Most days I get the P100 within half a dozen attempts.
I seem to have more luck in the evening.

With the huge difference (4/6/8 times) between the P100 and all the rest its really not worth accepting any other CPU.

Interestingly when I was using Colab for mfaktc I'd get 2 GPUs per day for about 3 hours as well.

Since I have switched to GPUOwl I get 2 GPUs per day for 5 or 6 hours.

Maybe because Chris had set it up so that while the GPUs were running mfaktc the CPUs were running P-1 at the same time?

Sorry all and thanks all
That is a pitfall. Different drives are connected to different Gmail accounts. Glad you got it sorted out.

Question How many concurrent notebooks?

How many concurrent notebooks can one run under a single google account, in the free tier? If it helps, I'm looking at CPU-only notebooks.
