How do you run multiple task on a GPU
Joined: 9 Jun 99
If you haven't figured it out yet by doing a forum search, here's how. You need an app_config.xml file for it in your BOINC\Projects\setiathome.berkeley.edu\ directory
You can make an app_config.xml file using Notepad, following the structure depicted in the user manual. You'll need the correct application name, which you can lift (carefully) from client_state.xml (when exiting client_state.xml and it asks to save the file, always cancel!)
In short, this is what you need:
<gpu_usage> set to .5 runs two tasks, set to .33 runs three tasks and so fort.
Leave <cpu_usage> at something low.
I don't have an Nvidia GPU (or am not running any devices with a GPU for that matter) so can't be of help with the default application names. Perhaps you can list what executables there are in your BOINC\Projects\setiathome.berkeley.edu\ directory?
After adding the app_config.xml file, do Options->Read config files in BOINC Manager. Although a BOINC restart may be required.
