Hi there,

I am in need of an app_info.xml that will make me run Moo on CPU and ATI.

I downloaded dnetc-win64 and an dnetc-stream by myself, so i just need the xml to make both work together...

Can someone give me a good app_info.xml?

Use the Moo webpage under your account, Moo Wrapper preferences and enable it where it says this:
Use CPU
Enforced by version 6.10+ no
Use ATI GPU
Enforced by version 6.10+ yes
Use NVIDIA GPU
Enforced by version 6.10+ yes

It is much easier that way. Then, since I can't see your pc's I don't know if you already have or not, you just need to load the driver for you particular gpu from the manufacturers webpage, amd.com or nvidia.com Once the driver is loaded restart the pc and you should be good to go, in Windows that is. I am NOT a Linux or whatever else guy so for that someone else would need to jump in.

Already enabled cpu: yes and gpu (amd) yes too, but will not give me any gpu tasks. But giving out plenty of cpu work...

Try suspending PrimeGrid, Einstein, Seti, Poem, and any other gpu projects, for a little bit and then try getting units from here again. You could have a problem with too many gpu projects to get many units from here. If you have the option checked TO get gpu units then there is nothing an app_info can do, I don't think, to FORCE Boinc to download some.

Just want to follow up regarding this! Would this help resolve the issue of multiple Nvidia GPUs or ATI GPUs in a system? Because I tried using app_config.xml with this configuration below:

<app_config>
<app>
<name>dnetc</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.25</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.05</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

And I am getting one graphics card doing two WU rather than two graphics card doing their own single WU.

IF not, please guide me on how to do rectify it!

Thanks!

I think what you need is a "dummy plug" on all gpu's that don't have monitors attached to them. http://www.overclock.net/t/384733/the-30-second-dummy-plug

no need for dummy plug.
Simply attach this cc_config.xml to BOINC (not to the project directly)

<cc_config>
<options>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
<report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>
</options>
</cc_config>

It will force your system to use all GPU's without dummy plugs.

have Fun

Well, my problem still not solved.
Get gpu work is set to yes inside moo preferences, and I also use the "use all gpu" cc_config, but still I get:

Any help in sight?

Try:

<app_config>
<app>
<name>dnetc</name>
<max_concurrent>2</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.50</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.05</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

or

<app_config>
<app>
<name>dnetc</name>
<max_concurrent>4</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.25</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.05</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>
