Is THIS Close to right,

<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>1.00</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>1.00</cpu_usage>

Still running Stock for now.

with lunatics i use this on a 6core AMD @3.5Ghz and GeForce960 with 2GB Vram ( on other pc with 700er Geforces only 2WU/Card) :

cc_config:
<cc_config>
<log_flags>
<unparsed_xml>1</unparsed_xml>
</log_flags>
<options>
<process_priority_special>4</process_priority_special>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
<ncpus>12</ncpus>
</options>
</cc_config>

app_config.xml:
<app_config>
<app>
<name>setiathome_v8</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.25</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.25</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

app_info.xml done by lunatics no own editings there.
boincmanager options settings: use 95%cpu and use 90%processortime so i can surf and response of system is very quick still.


Thanks wykinger

This is the app that I have been running for over a year...It lives in BOINC data folder in the S@H folder with the WU's in it.

<app_config>
<app_version>
<app_name>setiathome_v8</app_name>
<plan_class>cuda50</plan_class>
<avg_ncpus>0.20</avg_ncpus>
<ngpus>0.40</ngpus>
</app_version>
<app_version>
<app_name>setiathome_v8</app_name>
<plan_class>cuda42</plan_class>
<avg_ncpus>0.20</avg_ncpus>
<ngpus>0.40</ngpus>
</app_version>
<project_max_concurrent>5</project_max_concurrent>
</app_config>

What the heck do I put where when I install the Optimized App.
And shouldn't I eliminate all of the cuda stuff?


This is the app_config.xml I use
<app_config>
 <app>
  <name>setiathome_v8</name>
  <gpu_versions>
  <gpu_usage>1.00</gpu_usage>
  <cpu_usage>1.00</cpu_usage>
  </gpu_versions>
 </app>
</app_config>

It will run 1 WU at a time, and reserve 1 CPU thread for that GPU WU.

The Lunatics installer will overwrite your existing app_info.xml with the appropriate information.
I Know that I'm Getting a bit slow anymore. However With my Wife's problems and All of our Vehicles Down for 2 weeks I just Ain't ready to quit the Project Yet. :o)
The MAIN thing is Thank You Sir And Others For YOUR Expertise, Time and Patients.

I have Never modified anything to to do with guppies and they only run 1 at a time on the GPU's.

Jim, my old X4 630 (no overclock) runs 2 stock spec'd 660's using, -sbs 1024 -period_iterations_num 10 -spike_fft_thresh 4096 -tune 1 64 1 4 -oclfft_tune_gr 256 -oclfft_tune_lr 16 -oclfft_tune_wg 256 -oclfft_tune_ls 512 -oclfft_tune_bn 64 -oclfft_tune_cw 64, cmdline and is lag free in use.

I can't comment on the other 2 cards as my other 2 rigs use 3GB 1060's that replaced 5xx cards.

Cheers.

I was just Now getting ready to put the Lunatics app in all 3 Puters,
Then I checked in here again...Now I'm totally confuzzed again.
OH Dear now what to do, Oh My, Oh Me, Oh My. (Mind Frying...Brain Fart, FUZzzzzzzzzzzzaaaaaaappp)! ~~*:o/

Post:
If I install the new Anonymous App from Mike's page will it delete the old Config file or should I remove it Manually from all My Boxes?

The app_config.xml file will remain untouched.
I'd suggest leaving it there, and just removing the Seti@homev7 section, and editing the CPU & GPU values to the ones you want. That will leave the configuration you're previously set for AP still intact.
The Lunatics installer should select the best Application for the CPU, but you will have to select the appropriate GPU application- ie Nvidia SoG.


Got it...Thanks. :o)
Will The same GPU application for Nvidia SoG, Work on my 3 cards?
Card1 GTX660sc 2gb
Card2 GTX750oc 2gb
Card3 GTX 1050 2gb

How many cudas should that card run @ one time without Slowing too much?

Not sure exactly what you're asking there.
CUDA is the platform and API (Application Programming Interface) for computing on Nvidia's hardware.
On that card, the most WUs I would run at a time would be 1.

If not being used for daily work, just as a cruncher,
-tt 600 -hp -period_iterations_num 1 -high_perf -sbs 1024 -spike_fft_thresh 4096 -tune 1 64 1 4 -oclfft_tune_gr 256 -oclfft_tune_lr 16 -oclfft_tune_wg 256 -oclfft_tune_ls 512 -oclfft_tune_bn 64 -oclfft_tune_cw 64 -cpu_lock
should result in plenty of work being crunched.

Running stock, you'd need to put it in the
mb_cmdline-8.22_windows_intel__opencl_nvidia_SoG.txt
file in the Seti project directory.

If running Lunatics then it goes in the
mb_cmdline_win_x86_SSE3_OpenCL_NV_SoG.txt
file, also in the Seti project directory.

Once the file has been saved, no need to do anything else- the values will be picked up when the next WU starts being processed.


My Question is based on this Old thread where Zalster helped Me...https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=79070

You got an old Luntics installer. ;-)

You'll find the latest Lunatics installer "0.45 Beta 6" here, http://mikesworld.eu/download.html.

Cheers.

I just got done checking and discovered that...Thanks Wiggo. :)


I think that I'm going to let the stock app level off before putting in the latest Lunatics App.
At least as long as the stock (opencl_nvidia_SoG) does not start throwing Errors.

Grant, I did as instructed and ran a Fresh download of v44 but there was no (opencl_nvidia_SoG) to be found.
Sooooo, I uninstalled Everything again and just installed stock With Zalsters config that he helped me with. Cause it downloaded a CRAPload of cuda 42s and 50s.
Stock is running nvidia_SoG's OK so far.
What did I Screw-Up? :o\
