Message 77189 - Posted: 13 Jun 2014 | 17:18:00 UTC

I was running two tasks on my GTX750 Ti and that was fine. I installed the Quad install and ran the update quad ini file bat job. I thought that it would run two tasks as it had done on the GPU and run two on the CPU.

However what it did was try and run all four on the GPU and none on the CPU.

How do I configure the ini file to run CPU and GPU ?

This is the only server uncommented server=GFN262144:100:6:prpnet.primegrid.com:11002

// This is the name of LLR executable. On Windows, this needs to be
// the LLR console application, not the GUI application. The GUI
// application does not terminate when the PRP test is done.
// On some systems you will need to put a "./" in front of the executable
// name so that it looks in the current directory for it rather than
// in the system path.
// LLR can be downloaded from http://jpenne.free.fr/index2.html
// If running a 64-bit system, comment out the llr.exe and uncomment llr64.exe
// To use a CC 1.3+ CUDA GPU, comment out llr.exe and uncomment llrCUDA.exe

// If you are running a 64 bit OS, comment out the pfgw32 line

//pfgwexe=pfgw32.exe
pfgwexe=pfgw64.exe

// This is the name of the genefer executables used for GFN searches. Up

What project do you want to run? I think genefer. You must exclude every CPU and GPU in an extra folder and setup the file.

Not sure what the means. Create another folder and just run CPU in that one and run GPU only in the original ?

Yes genefer

If you want to run four, two on gpu and two on cpu, then you need to make changes to the prpclient.ini file in each of the prpclient-[1234] directories. In two of them, leave the prpclient.ini file (as you posted in this thread) alone. It should work OK for the GPU. In the other two directories, the ones where you want to run on CPU, comment out the line that says "geneferexe=geneferocl.exe" by putting two slashes ("//") at the start of the line. Then restart each instance.

By the way, at least on my box (which has a gtx770) it does not seem beneficial to run more geneferocl instances than you have cards. When I was running two simultaneously, their runtimes were slightly *more* than twice that I was getting when just running one. Of course, everyone's machine is different.

OK thanks I will try that. I guess I will have to manually modify every time instead of running the ini update bat ?

You cant use it due changes with instances.

Last night I created two folders one for CPU and one for GPU and run them as required. As I only have one GPU running in the this PC I have the GPU running one instance and the CPU running four instances. That way I can change the master ini file in each folder and not have to remember to change all the Instances ini.

Thanks to John for the PM today, great minds think alike.
