Could someone please provide me with an example app_info.xml file that will allow me to run both standard CPU tasks as well as multiple cuda tasks on an Nvidia board?

With no app_info.xml I get cpu tasks but only 1 cuda task. When I add a app_info.xml file such as I've seen here, I can run multiple cuda tasks but no cpu tasks. How can I run multiple instances of both?


Thanks,

Nick

Let me try this another way.

The below app_info.xml file will allow 4 instances of a cuda file to run.

It will not allow CPU tasks to be fetched or run.

If I delete this file, CPU tasks will download and run fine and a single instance of a cuda file will download and run file.

Can anyone tell me how to get this to run both multiple CPU tasks and multiple Cuda tasks?

Your are missing the section for the CPU app, here is mine:

Thank you Gary. I was able to modify it for Nvidia and that solves my problem!

Question. How would anyone find this out without help?

Glad you got it working, I found most of what I know by searching the message boards. I started running the optimized apps for Seti@Home and it is required there.
