PPS Sieve Emerald: Earned 50,000,000 credits (85,576,206)
Message 114651 - Posted: 10 Feb 2018 | 15:54:47 UTC

I created app_config.xml to run two task simultaneously on one GTX 1070, and it worked as expected. But when I deleted the file and restarted the Boinc client, it continued the two tasks.

Even after finishing all (already downloaded) tasks, my GPU continues to run new tasks in parallel.

What can I do to make Boinc return to running one task at a time?

Regards,
Bas

I suspect you restarted the BOINC manager rather than the BOINC client.

Easiest way to make sure you've absolutely, positively, restarted the BOINC client is to reboot the computer.

For future reference, the way to shut down the BOINC client is to select "File --> Shut down connected client..." from the BOINC manager's menu (in advanced mode). If the BOINC manager is in simple mode, there doesn't appear to be an option to shut down the client.

All 4 of my servers had this problem, but 3 of them are running OK now. I expect number 4 will be OK in a short while.

The boinc processes were properly restarted, I checked this with a "ps" (I'm running linux)

Maybe some things are cached in "client_state.xml"?

Anyway, thanks for your help!

In Linux, just restart the client with the command (with root privilege)

systemctl restart boinc-client.service
- or -
service boinc-client restart

depending on which version of Linux you are using.
How you get root privilege also depends on your distro and how you set it up.
Rebooting always works.

I am an idiot: All parallel running jobs were previously downloaded. Jobs downloaded after the removal of app_config.xml are running one at a time.

You can also configure app to run 1 copy per GPU in app_config.xml instead of restarting BOINC client.
