Topic 217095

I'm setting up a new app_config.xml file and don't know what the file needs to use for "Application_Name"
There are quite a few apps.

 

Below is  the list.

What I need is the "name" used in app_config.xml for each one.

 

Thanks,

Doug

Applications

Interesting. My computer is

Interesting.

My computer is running an app that's not on this list.

I'll see if there's a similar file on my computer somewhere.

I must be doing something

I must be doing something wrong.

Here is the file I've created.

I don't seem to get any change from the number of GPU or CPU apps running no matter how I change these numbers.  I've tried .25 .125 .2 etc...  nadda

 

 

I'm running an Nvidia RTX 2080

Are all of those brackets

Are all of those brackets required or are they just commenting out everything in the file?

Removed the brackets as they

Removed the brackets as they seem to put everything in parentheses

No change in behavior of Boinc

As it says at the top of the

As it says at the top of the user manual (https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Client_configuration)

Note: Wherever you see square brackets [ ] used in the examples, these are not used. They show additional options. When using the specific piece of code, delete the square brackets, or the option you try to use will be ignored.

That's a standard convention for computer documentation.

Sorry for not seeing your messages earlier.  I'm just now able to catch up with the latest forum messages.

You mentioned RTX 2080 so I presume you are wanting to run concurrent GPU tasks on that GPU.  You have 3 machines listed and the second one shows as dual GTX 690s.  Were you intending to run concurrent tasks on that machine as well?

Also, are you aware of the problems that have showed up for certain types of FGRPB1G tasks on RTX 2080 (and similar) Turing GPUs?  If not, here is the first report at Einstein of the problem.  The current series of tasks are not of the problem type but there could be a change back to the problem type in the future.  I just wanted to make sure you were aware of this in case it strikes again at some point.

Please be advised that whilst using the app_config.xml mechanism can certainly work for you, unless you get on top of the documentation, it's not completely straight forward to set up correctly, as you have already discovered.  It would be far easier just to use the preference setting for GPU utilization factor for FGRP apps.  The only real downside would be that whatever factor you chose would potentially apply to all hosts crunching FGRPB1G GPU tasks.  It may very well be that you might want different settings for your host with the GTX 690 GPUs.  That can be achieved by using different locations (venues) for the different machines and setting the correct preferences separately for each location.

If you would like to give more information about your intentions (are you wanting to run CPU tasks as well and if so what searches would you prefer) I'd be happy to respond with suggestions of how best to achieve what you want.  If you really want to learn how to properly configure an app_config.xml file, I would help with that as well.

 

Cheers,
Gary.

Heh... I've been a systems

Heh... I've been a systems and network engineer for decades and don't recall seeing brackets used like this.

--sigh: a sign I'm getting old

No worries.  I appreciate

No worries.  I appreciate your efforts.

I've been down this road before and am a bit confused why my config file (without the brackets) is not working.

I would like to configure the RTX differently than the GTX as the former is about an order of magnitude more powerful.  I would simply crush the old GTX if I attempted to use it in the same way as the RTX.  I've found the documentation to be wanting but I've been down this road before, but it's been a year or two.
