app_config.xml editor
« on: June 07, 2018, 10:01:11 am »
As of V 1.77 BoincTasks includes an app_config.xml editor, that should work with BOINC 7.10.2.

More info here https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Client_configuration

To use select the Project Tab -> select a project -> Menu Extra Edit config file (app_config.xml)

The test entry:


<app_config>
       <app>
           <name>setiathome_v8</name>
           <max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
           <gpu_versions>
               <gpu_usage>.5</gpu_usage>
               <cpu_usage>.4</cpu_usage>
           </gpu_versions>
           <fraction_done_exact>0</fraction_done_exact>
           <report_results_immediately>0</report_results_immediately>
       </app>
       <app_version>
           <app_name>setiathome_v8</app_name>
           <plan_class></plan_class>
           <cmdline>--nthreads 7</cmdline>
           <avg_ncpus>0.000000</avg_ncpus>
           <ngpus>4.000000</ngpus>
       </app_version>
       <project_max_concurrent>0</project_max_concurrent>
       <report_results_immediately>0</report_results_immediately>
   </app_config>

**NOTE:
The BOINC client changes:
      <gpu_versions>
          <gpu_usage>.5</gpu_usage>
          <cpu_usage>.4</cpu_usage>
      </gpu_versions>
into:
      <gpu_gpu_usage>0.500000</gpu_gpu_usage>
      <gpu_cpu_usage>0.400000</gpu_cpu_usage>

Both are valid.
