Message 47640 - Posted: 20 Jul 2017 | 22:39:05 UTC

Google and this forum have been no help at all. Base problem: I'm not getting any WU's. I'm thinking it's the "name" in app_config.xml

<app_config>
<app>
<name>??????</name>
<max_concurrent>4</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>.85</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>1.00</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>


I've tried several different ?app-names? only to be told by Boincmgr "No app by that name.

Any help. Please, thanks.

You can browse your client_state.xml file, to find the app_names that your client has seen.
You can use the pre tag to properly show pre-formatted text.

My app_config.xml, below, is set to run 2 tasks per GPU, and to allocate 1 CPU per every 3 concurrent tasks (I sometimes run 6-tasks-at-a-time on my 3 GPUs).

<!-- GPUGrid.net --> <!-- GPU tasks do properly use higher process and thread priorities, compared to CPU tasks. --> <!-- GPU tasks sometimes use CPU sometimes don't, based on type of GPU task runs on. --> <app_config> <!-- Short runs (2-3 hours on fastest card) --> <app> <name>acemdshort</name> <max_concurrent>0</max_concurrent> <gpu_versions> <gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage> <cpu_usage>0.499</cpu_usage> </gpu_versions> </app> <!-- Long runs (8-12 hours on fastest card) --> <app> <name>acemdlong</name> <max_concurrent>0</max_concurrent> <gpu_versions> <gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage> <cpu_usage>0.499</cpu_usage> </gpu_versions> </app> <!-- ACEMD beta version --> <app> <name>acemdbeta</name> <max_concurrent>0</max_concurrent> <gpu_versions> <gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage> <cpu_usage>0.499</cpu_usage> </gpu_versions> </app> </app_config>

Thanks for the reply. I cheated - copied your file, did restart, (got)
Req.ing new task ... NVIDIA GPU
Sched req got 0 new tasks
No tasks sent

did a Reset: got: project_123.png downloaded

Before GPU changed server I was running fine. Is there some config on my end that needs changing? And client_state - not any gpu, acm... nada.

<cry>

That's a different issue that deserves a different thread. Please post in a new thread. And I don't know the answer, either.
