    BOINC Client Config Files

    I was playing around with the app_config.xml and thought that I would start with something simple. I created this xml file and dropped it into the Distributed Data Mining project folder. The idea was to only allow the project to use 2 cores. Only one problem... it doesn't work.

    I started with the file they show on the BOINC site. I left the gpu_versions at what they had set. I first tried just the max_concurrent at 2 (I assume that when I set this to 2, it will use 4 threads) but that didn't work so I added the project_max_concurrent to 2 and that didn't work either. I'm wondering if it doesn't like the app name? I took it straight out of BOINC.


    <app_config>
    <app>
    <name>1.36 Biological Data Analysis: Laryngeal Video Classification</name>
    <max_concurrent>2</max_concurrent>
    <gpu_versions>
    <gpu_usage>.5</gpu_usage>
    <cpu_usage>.4</cpu_usage>
    </gpu_versions>
    </app>]
    <app_version>
    <app_name>1.36 Biological Data Analysis: Laryngeal Video Classification</app_name>
    <plan_class>mt</plan_class>
    <ngpus>-1</ngpus>
    </app_version>
    <project_max_concurrent>2</project_max_concurrent>
    </app_config>

    If you are running BOINC 7.4.25 or later then try this to limit it to 2:

    <app_config>
    <project_max_concurrent>2</project_max_concurrent>
    </app_config>

    But I like horribly over complicating stuff. lol

    That worked perfectly. Thank you.
