1) Message boards : Number crunching : In need of app_info.xml (Message 5579)

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!

Hi Mikey,

I tried using the app_config.xml that you asked me to use! However, I am getting one GPU to do two tasks not two different GPUs to perform their own single individual tasks. And I do have about 4 or 6 GPUs in one system.

Can you help me to get around this?

Cheers!

Sorry I did not get back to this post for months as was focusing on other ideas!

Will try the app_config.xml again

By the way, I found that the one listed was incorrect! Did a bit of research and the correct way was below:

<app_config>
<app>
<name>dnetc</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.05</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

Will let you know whether it works or not!

Let's say if I have 3, 4, or 5 GPU, how do I type out the gpu usage?

Cheers!

I am quite a novice in writing scripts!

I guess I will just wait for someone to figure out for all of us a proper app_info.xml file that we can conveniently apply to any computers!

Thanks mikey!

Ok, let me try to put in a way that its clear for you.

Initially, when I have one ATI and one NVIDIA card in the system, the moowrap.net project is able to detect two separate cards, receives WU and completes its work. when I put two ATI and one NVIDIA, moowrap.net can detect 3 cards but the NVIDIA one is able to get the WU and complete its tasks while both ATI cards are unable to complete because the project detects it and group the different ATI cards together making it unable to run. this issue in the reversed configuration which is 2 (similar or different) NVIDIA cards and 1 ATI in one system also occurs.

Note that BOINC can already recognize the many multiple ATI and NVIDIA GPUs that was build into the system and already applied cc_config.xml to force the BOINC software to use all available GPUs in the system.

I have searched through the net and found an app_info.xml for the moowrap.net project for many similar or different ATI GPUs that allows the moowrap.net to crunch in every single ATI GPU and completes its WU assigned by the project.

The notice that I got with and without the app_info.xml are as shown below:
A) WITHOUT THE app_info.xml in the moowrap.net folder in windows:
Ready to start (or when I perform 'Running CPU Benchmarks',(0.2 CPUs + 2 ATI GPU)

B) With the app_info.xml in the moowrap.net folder in windows:
Running (0.2 CPUs+ 1 ATI GPU (device 0)
Running (0.2 CPUs+ 1 ATI GPU (device 1)

This is what I placed into the app_info.xml
Hopefully this clarifies what I am getting here!

<app_info>
<app>
<name>dnetc</name>
<user_friendly_name>Distributed.net Client</user_friendly_name>

<count>1.000</count>
</coproc>
<gpu_ram>262144000.000000</gpu_ram>
</app_version>
</app_info>

If there is any such file or configuration of the app_info.xml file for multiple nvidia GPU whether they are the same or different model that I could place it into the moowrap.net folder would be great!

Thanks

Post:
i use the cc_config.xml file and placed it in the regular BOINC folder under ProgData and it works for other projects like Einstein@home and also utilises all nvidia or ati cards.

but it does not work with just that file for multiple ati or nvidia cards. The multiple ati cards managed to run after i placed a specific app_info.xml file on the project.

So, could anyone make an app_info.xml file for multiple nvidia cards in one system?

thanks

Hey guys,

I know that there is app_info.xml going around for multiple ATI cards which would allow the Moo Wrapper to assign to two different or more GPU cards individual projects and eliminate the problem of this:
"Moo Wrapper: (1 CPU + 3 NVIDIA GPU)"
which is shown in BOINC and does not crunch/run at all!

But I can't seem to find the app_info.xml configuration file for multiple Nvidia GPUs in one system!

Can someone please help me out?

All 3 nvidia cards are Geforce 8400GS, 8400GS and 9300GE

Thanks!
