I would like to test out running two AP27 apps simultaneously if that is possible.

I have this in my app_config:


<app>
<name>ap26</name>
<max_concurrent>2</max_concurrent>
</app>
<app_version>
<app_name>ap26</app_name>
<plan_class>OCL_cuda_AP27</plan_class>
<avg_ncpus>0.01</avg_ncpus>
<ngpus>.5</ngpus>
</app_version>

I wasn't sure about the plan class but didn't get an error msg. it's running with .5gpus now in the task view but only one task. Not sure why.

<edit>

hah problem solved. I didn't have it set to get new tasks. running two at once now. will see how it does on a 1060 6gb.

i haven't tested this.. but on nvidia the program maxes the local memory usage on gpu... so two at a time means they will be swapping local memory back and forth. i would think it would be slower.

Are you talking about GPU L1/L2 cache memory vs. VRAM or VRAM vs. DRAM? I just checked my 980ti and it is only using about 1.5 GB total (including however much it uses to run my displays).

You can look up the plan class names, as well as the app names on the Applications page.

As for the XML, get rid of the entire <app> section. Don't use <max_concurrent>; unless you have a good reason to do so, use <ngpus> to control the number of tasks per GPU.

Other than that, the XML looks good.

Do be careful with AP27; unlike most other GPU apps it uses a LOT of VRAM. On smaller or older GPUs you may not have enough VRAM to run more than one task.

Thanks. Will remove the <app> section.

And yep, it is a memory monster :) Over a GB of video memory for each task running. I have it running on a 1060 6b but there is really no difference with 2 tasks. The GPU Load fluctuates still from 80-100. Same as with the one AP27 task. No difference freeing up CPU time. With 2 AP27 tasks going it's taking about twice as long per task. So I will be going back to one to tear through them faster.

This is the only app I've seen utilize that much video memory. I've also got 32gb of regular RAM and I still haven't found any apps to use much of that.

I am referring to the small amount of on-die memory that the GPU can access very quickly, like a cache. It's much faster than the VRAM.

I don't think it downloaded a workunit... maybe. And the ngpus should be 1 or lower. Set it to .5 to run two workunits at once.

The error says that in your ap26 entry "OCL_cuda_AP27" doesn't match, so you probably have a AMD card (can't tell, your computers are hidden) and are actually using "opencl_ati_AP27".

Change your plan class to that and see what happens.

Entry in app_config.xml for app 'ap26', plan class 'OCL_cuda_AP27' doesn't match any app versions

Any idea what went wrong?


The error says that in your ap26 entry "OCL_cuda_AP27" doesn't match, so you probably have a AMD card (can't tell, your computers are hidden) and are actually using "opencl_ati_AP27".

Change your plan class to that and see what happens.


Good idea. I couldn't see his tasks or computers either. I'm leaning in favor of your answer.
