Returned to BOINC after a break and cannot get the app_config to work on Primegrid.

I am using BOINC v 7.4.21 on Ubuntu 14.04 64bit and trying to run SOB and ESP sieve at the mo.

This is my previous config with esp added:

<app_config>
<app>

<max_concurrent>0</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.49</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.49</cpu_usage>

</app>
</app_config>

Any help would be appreciated

Try setting different preferences using say home and work in "Primegrid Preferences".

Then got to "Computers on this account", click on details for each computer. then at the bottom you can select home or work for each computer, click update, then go to BOINCmanager and update primegrid on each box.

You can manage up to 4 different sets of preferences this way.

Still using 275.33 with no problems but I have rebooted and the runtimes have gone back to normal. There was no sign of any downclock before I rebooted but I'll give driver 275.50 a try

Theres no downclock problem here, not using the problem driver, it was fixed in later versions.

Not only has credit decreased to 4327/wu but my runtimes have increased from 18.25 min to 40.25 min, which means daily credit will drop from 356K to 154K, more than 50% and will drop further in the next few weeks.

More importantly, with the cost of electricity due to increase by 10% in the UK, apart from the fact that the credits have dropped, the number of completed WUs per day has dropped by more than 50% and therefore the electricity cost per WU has more than doubled.
