FAQ / Re: app_config.xml editor
« Last post by fred on September 08, 2018, 02:40:51 pm »
You have a major problem with this edit app_config.xml feature. It alters the code and adds killer lines.

So now I understand why I never get any Milkyway WUs. Great, I now have to audit about 400 app_config.xml files one by one to assure they are correct.
From what I remember, the BOINC client changes the syntax, the last entry should be the correct one for recent clients.
I see nothing wrong, the added settings are the default settings, no other way to send them to the BOINC client. All the parameters need to be send.

Do you see any errors in the log that indicates there is something wrong?

When I press the benchmark button for any of my computers (including the localhost), nothing happens.  :-\
I see, added to the to-do list, let's see what's going on, this may take a while....

Here's what I entered:
<app_config>
<app>
    <name>milkyway</name>
    <gpu_versions>
        <gpu_usage>0.999</gpu_usage>
        <cpu_usage>0.5</cpu_usage>
    </gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>


Here's what Fred wrote to my Milkyway app_config:
<app_config>
       <app>
           <name>milkyway</name>
           <max_concurrent>0</max_concurrent>
           <gpu_gpu_usage>0.500000</gpu_gpu_usage>
           <gpu_cpu_usage>0.999000</gpu_cpu_usage>
           <fraction_done_exact>0</fraction_done_exact>
           <report_results_immediately>0</report_results_immediately>
       </app>
       <project_max_concurrent>0</project_max_concurrent>
   </app_config>

So now I understand why I never get any Milkyway WUs. Great, I now have to audit about 400 app_config.xml files one by one to assure they are correct.

I read the version history and I don't know what you're talking about here. Maybe you're saying the edit feature was added to Win version but yet to be added to Linux??? I could try Linux to Linux and see if that works.
In BoincTasks click on the Computers tab. The BOINC column shows the version number.
Yes the Linux version is always older than the Windows version.

I just installed TThrottle for Windows but I really needed a temp monitor for my Linux computers. Any plans to make a Linux version???
Nop no plans for a Linux version. There are are several Linux programs that can, search for lm-sensors.

I tried editing an app_config file on a Linux Mint 19 Tara computer (BOINC 7.9.3) from a Win7 computer (BOINC 7.12.1) and it showed it to me but the changes didn't take.
This feature was introduced in the BOINC client recently, so it seems the client doesn't support it.

Does the log show anything when you try to update.
Rig-08  5826   Milkyway@Home   8/29/2018 1:51:42 AM   [error] Can't open app config file projects/milkyway.cs.rpi.edu_milkyway/app_config.xml

My PC is Win7-64 and Rig-08 is Linux Mint 19 Tara.
After clicking Apply it gives no message so it appears to work. If I try to Edit app_config.xml again the old text is still there.
I discovered that even when there was no app_config.xml present on the remote PC a text editor box opens with an error message. I found I could replace that error message with the config code, Check Syntax & Appy and it gets created on the remote PC. Great feature.
Love the Syntax Checker!!!

Questions / Re: Same computer with two same GPU brand
« Last post by fred on August 26, 2018, 04:14:31 pm »
I have one computer with two GPU (AMD):
  • device 0: with AMD APU
  • Device 1: AMD HD 7770
The problem is with the BOINC client, reporting device and Device .
I added the problem to my to-do list check for Device as well.

Questions / Same computer with two same GPU brand
« Last post by Corsair on August 26, 2018, 03:51:12 pm »
I have one computer with two GPU (AMD):
  • device 0: with AMD APU
  • Device 1: AMD HD 7770

- device 0 is reported in ussage in BT as "device 0"
- device 1 is reported in ussage in BT as "d1"

why not being reported as "d0" & "d1" instead of different names each one??

I also noticed that I have another computer with two GPU as
- one for the internal I7, Intel HD 4600
- second NV GF 1050Ti


and no one of them are listed as d0 neither d1 they looks like independent and they belong to the same computer.  :-\
