I want to be able to exclusively use my GPU 0 for SETI, and my GPU 1 for PrimeGrid. Both GPU's are GTS 450's, Windows 7 x64, drivers 266.58.
So far i've created a cc_config.xml file, with the following parameters:
<cc_config> <options> <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus> <exclude_gpu> <url>http://www.primegrid.com</url> <device_num>0</device_num> </exclude_gpu> <exclude_gpu> <url>http://setiathome.berkeley.edu</url> <device_num>1</device_num> </exclude_gpu> </options> </cc_config>
Problem is, when i load BOINC, an error message appears: Unrecognized tag in cc_config.xml: <exclude_gpu>, but it keeps on crunching just fine, but without dividing the load as i'd like. Both SETI and Prime have the same resource allocation, my client version is 6.12.34, and my manager version is 6.10.60 (i really hate the way the Event Log does not show up on the main screen). What i don't know if my little manager mod might be affecting it, or if is it my version, as i see it is only for version 6.13, of which i only see a beta version.

my client version is 6.12.34
<exclude_gpu> <url>project_URL</url> [<device_num>N</device_num>] [<type>nvidia|ati</type>] [<app>appname</app>] </exclude_gpu>
Don't use the given GPU for the given project. If <device_num> is not specified, exclude all GPUs of the given type. <type> is required if your computer has more than one type of GPU; otherwise it can be omitted. If <app> is specified, only jobs for the given app are excluded. You may include multiple <exclude_gpu> elements. New in 6.13

Doesn't work yet, not even in 6.13.10
A fix may be coming in 6.13.11, I'll be sure to test it then.
