    Different apps for different GPUs

    I have a gtx 560 and hd 4000. I like solo collatz on the 560 but I would like to run a shorter WU than the solo one on the hd4000. Can someone share a method for getting different WUs per device per host? I would guess this is either done in app_info or app_config?

    I will give you an in-artful approach and hopefully someone will come along with an elegant solution.

    I assume the GPUs are on different machines.

    1. Set your collatz webpage preferences to the size of WU you want for the 1st machine.

    2. Set your 1st machine to receive 10 days of collatz. Once downloaded, set it to no new tasks.

    3. Set the collatz webpage preferences to the size of WU you want for the 2nd machine.

    4. Set the 2nd machine to receive 10 days of collatz. Once downloaded, set it to no new tasks.

    They are in the same machine, hd 4000 on the CPU die and the gtx 560 via PCIe.. so location preferences wouldn't help.

    Re: Different apps for different GPUs

    I would think that would be done in the cc_cong.xml using <exclude_gpu> and specifying the app also.

    Re: Different apps for different GPUs

    Something like this in cc_config.xml:

    <exclude_gpu>
    <url>http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/</url>
    <type>nvidia</type>
    <app>mini_collatz</app>
    </exclude_gpu>
    <exclude_gpu>
    <url>http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/</url>
    <type>intel_gpu</type>
    <app>solo_collatz</app>
    </exclude_gpu>

    Re: Different apps for different GPUs

    "A GPU exclusion in your cc_config.xml file refers to an unknown application 'mini_collatz'. Known applications: 'solo_collatz', 'large_collatz'"

    is what I get after i pasted it within the options flags


    A GPU exclusion in your cc_config.xml file refers to an unknown application 'mini_collatz'. Known applications: 'solo_collatz', 'large_collatz'

    is this a server side thing, did i configure it wrong, do i need to manually download the other applications? Actually I just did that, downloaded the following to the collatz application directory

    mini_collatz_6.04_windows_x86_64__opencl_intel_gpu .exe
    mini_collatz_6.04_windows_x86_64__opencl_intel_gpu .pdb
    mini_collatz_6.04_windows_x86_64__opencl_intel_gpu .config

    check the project folder for mini_collatz. If it's not there, you will have to get it.......anyone have the manual download link?? I just did the hokey pokey with the options after they became available. I never did get to the micro.
