Disable CPU-only tasks with exclusive_app setting

Anonymous
Topic 226709

I am trying to figure out a way to suspend CPU processing when a certain app is running, but not GPU processing. I have a dedicated 2nd GPU that I want to run 24/7, but whenever the app in question starts everything is shutdown.

 

Is there a way to prevent this without changing the project configs?

What exactly do you mean by "everything"?  Are you already using <exclusive_app> ... </exclusive app> in cc_config.xml?

Since there is also an <exclusive_gpu_app> option, I would have guessed that the other one would only suspend CPU crunching and not GPU crunching as well.  I haven't previously used either option so I don't know exactly what happens.

Cheers,
Gary.

There is no option just to stop the CPU computing. It is either stop GPU or stop all.

Yeah, that's what I was

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. I guess I'll try scripting it to only allow a couple of CPUs until I can find a sweet spot where my Steam games don't slow down.
