Yeah, that was not a bug. Though it did stop a few minutes later at 24 hours and 16 minutes. I hit the reconnect and play buttons, and it restarted.

To be clear, I have running 4 sessions at once. Two got about 15 minutes past 24 hours, and I had to restart them. The other 2 are on the 20 hour mark.

Do I need to run each Colab window using a different Google Account? I have two Notebook Access Keys, but when I have them running at the same time on different computers, they seem to do the same work and step on each other's toes.

So should I just create a new Google account, and have the different Access Keys I have on GPU72 run on each?

Definitely.

Each Google ***Account*** is given the compute allotment. So if you have two (or more) Notebooks "attached" to a backend, they'll be sharing the resources (even the FS). Different AKeys just means they're stepping on each other.

I've found that having four (4#) accounts per web browser (each in a different tab) is just about optimal for managing the runs. You can use the same AKey for all of them if you want, but I think it's better to have a different one for each, so you know what instance is running what where.

Got it, thanks. I actually had an old Google account that I hadn't used in a long time, I just resurrected and its churning away on Colab now. I have just left the two settings as "Let GPU72 Decide".

Near as I could tell for the few minutes I was running the free colab, you got 2 sessions per google account. When I upgraded to pro it became 4.

I use one account, 4 sessions, 1 session/tab. I have 2 notebook keys, but if I had it to do over again I'd only use 1 because I can eyeball all 4 tabs at a go and they're either all on or all off. Maybe a notebook key per google account would be the way to go.

I noticed today that you can open a local session if you have a jupyter server on your pc. I think the likelyhood is low, but I can't help but wonder if it wouldn't be faster/easier to run a notebook against my own pc vs misfit and mfactc.

Have you really had a session run 24 hours and 14 minutes? I've *never* seen anything over 12, and that was last year!
I run two paid accounts in alternation. I run four Notebooks in each. Usually, I calculate based on an 18 hour run. If I'm going to be asleep when a group times out, I switch to the other before retiring. When I forget to check until later I have seen runs of 20-23 hours. I currently have 4 just short of 22 hours. I still occasionally get the No GPU message if I confuse which account I am in (forgot to switch after stopping.) Going to the other account fixes this. I suppose this means I might be allowed overlap an hour or two. I am usually only signed into one account, but I don't think I have to be.
EDIT:
OMFG! I have 8 notebooks running ATM. I expect 4 of them to time out pretty soon, but we'll see.

Now for my next trick, I have the standard 4 P100s running on a paid account, and snagged 2 T4s on a free account. Duration is uncertain on the freeby, but 10 hours is about the limit I've run into. One does have to keep track of accounts to use them in sequence to get the longest runs. On the paid accounts, I have seen close to 24 hours if I forget and let them run till they quit.

I sure wish they would let T4s onto paid accounts. They are 50% faster than P100s, and they use about 28% of the power. I guess they have a lot more P100s, which still kick ass compared to K80s and the like. The 4 that I am using right now also are using about a kilowatt between them.
