1) Message boards : Problems and Help : Selecting which GPU to use (Message 131227)
Posted 4 days ago by Mektacular
Nah, that can be done with some config file magic:

<exclude_gpu> <url>http://www.primegrid.com/</url> <device_num>0</device_num> <app>pps_sr2sieve</app> </exclude_gpu> <exclude_gpu> <url>http://www.primegrid.com/</url> <device_num>1</device_num> <app>genefer17mega</app> </exclude_gpu>


So is the response earlier in the thread simply wrong? It appears so...

Looks like like the most straightforward approach is multiple boinc instances. I'll have to give that a try. Windows 10...

and that just goes in cc_config.xml in the primegrid project directory?


Correct. Under
<options></options>


Thanks.

What's confusing is where it all goes. In the responses above the cc_config.xml can go in the project directory (if I'm reading it right). So it appears it can go in both places?

My system would only use 1 GPU until I updated my cc_config.xml in my BOINC directory:
<cc_config> <options> <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus> </options> </cc_config>


Then my attempt to have my 1060 do generfer18 and the 2080ti do something else (in this case genefer19).

My cc_config.xml that is in my BOINC\projects\www.primegrid.com directory.

<cc_config> <options> <exclude_gpu> <url>http://www.primegrid.com/</url> <device_num>0</device_num> <app>genefer18</app> </exclude_gpu> <exclude_gpu> <url>http://www.primegrid.com/</url> <device_num>1</device_num> <app>genefer19</app> </exclude_gpu> </options> </cc_config>


Both GPU's are running 19's with this config. Clearly I need to learn something. :)

If I want to exclude a gpu from multiple apps, do simply create multiple <exclude_gpu> sections listing each app? (I tried this and it didn't work). Or is there some other magic like comma separating app names?

Nah, that can be done with some config file magic:

<exclude_gpu> <url>http://www.primegrid.com/</url> <device_num>0</device_num> <app>pps_sr2sieve</app> </exclude_gpu> <exclude_gpu> <url>http://www.primegrid.com/</url> <device_num>1</device_num> <app>genefer17mega</app> </exclude_gpu>

5) Message boards : Generalized Cullen/Woodall prime search : GCW-LLR is now open! (Message 107485)

How does this work with multi-threads?

Already covered by mackerel, also today in this very thread.

Infinitely unhelpful and bordering on rude given I'm trying to donate to this project. Search for HT on this thread. Many HTTP and a few overnight's and ZERO HT or mention or hyper threading. My HT is the first one you'll find.

Plus, this forum is the link that the "Generalized Cullen/Woodall Prime Search (Sieve)" It's a sieve for an LLR task. Sieve or LLR? I'm not a bleeping expert on primes, I just want to know how to setup my damn system.

And, still no direct answer. Wouldn't have been easier for you to say:
HT or No HT?

It's almost easier to switch back to WCG.

Your call on a friendly direct answer or not.


My apologies for this rant. I got the messages screwed up and thought this was a reply to my HT question.

Crunch on...

Edit: This reply is a mistake, see apology below. Leaving so quoted messages below aren't confusing.

I searched and didn't find an answer to: HT or no HT?

Oops, my bad. Thanks. Can't believe a spaced an entire challenge...

Greetings and happy new year. For some reason I don't show up on the Winter Solstice Challenge leaderboard anymore. Crunched a bunch of WU's and was even lucky enough to find an AP25.

Any idea why I may have disappeared?

Thanks Rafael for details and research. Very cool. I think I'll stick with the more standard configuration because consistent contribution over peak performance seems the best tact for me.
