Hi,

Einstein tasks only use up 50% of my RTX 2080 Ti's resources, and setting GPU to 0.5 brings it pretty close to 100% utilization.

The problem is that I have 6 CPU cores, and 4 GPUs.
The first 2 GPUs run fine (with 2 tasks per GPU),

The second 2 run with only 1 task per GPU.

Boinc tells me the CPU allocated to a GPU is 0.9CPU.
However, in HTOP I can clearly see about 25% of CPU usage per core is still available.

Where can I change the Einstein task settings to 0.8 or 0.7 CPU? (this way I'll be able to run 2 projects per GPU easily).

Try the

Try the following

<app>
<name>einstein_O2MDF</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.75</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
<app>
<name>hsgamma_FGRPB1G</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.75</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>


 

I did not get a big enough improvement on my 2080 Super to make it worth while to double the tasks plus the mombo has slower boards that cannot do 2x work units anyway.

 

The .75 came from 6 / 8 but if a problem then use .749 to force all 6 tasks
