Message 44539 - Posted: 14 Dec 2012, 16:40:34 UTC

Since I have installed an EVGA GTX660SC and have manually installed _41zb(Cuda4.2), I've started running tasks from the Beta site along/aside tasks from Seti Main.

1) Normally I run 3 tasks each on 1 x GTX660SC/2GB & 1 x GTX460SE/1GB on Seti Main via Lunatics v0.40. When running cuda42 tasks this has dropped to 1 task each. Is this normal or do I need to do something to increase the count?

2) After attaching to Seti Beta, there is no app_info.xml file in its project folder. Shouldn't there be one? I do not an example of one in any of the readme files in the project folder.

An app_info.xml file is how details of an anonymous platform host's applications are specified. When running stock, those details are supplied in the Scheduler replies.

This is very true, but if you notice from the original post, I am running _x41zb on Seti Main which is running anonymous platform hosts applications . Are you saying that this is being ignored when processing Beta tasks?

Not exactly 'ignored'.

Beta is a separate, distinct project. app_info.xml is neither needed nor wanted here.

Richard thanks for a clear and concise answer. So I will be content with running 1 cuda task at a time for each device.
