in cc_config, I set the logical spus to actual+1 (5) and I suspended all the seti tasks, I'm getting 4 cpu tasks and 2 gpu tasks running. Not what I would expected but its working. Only concern is if I get an (mt) task which will mess things up while it runs. If I re-enable the seti tasks, I get 5 MW tasks running and disables one of the GPUs again.

Thanks for the reply. Similar but not the same. I have run (4 simultaneous) seti cpu tasks for weeks and never get it to starve a gpu. I may play with app_config when I have some time.

With 2 gpus, I cannot run CPU tasks. Maybe you have some app_config code I could try. What happens is 4 cpu tasks eventually start running and stops one of the gpus from running. Not unlike when a MT tasks start running. Simple stop-gap solution is to not allow CPU tasks...

I have GPU wu again. Had to disable nbody because it is disabling (making wait) one of my GPUs when running (mt) (when 2 gpus in computer).

(mt) is a bad doggie - make it go away.

No CPU wu on the 7870 GPU machines but I am getting CPU on an older machine. Strange. Prefer it actually until the cpu wu's don't disable a gpu work.

Have set nbody to "no" but if no work units available, its suppose to grab nbody.

Two issues:

1. mt still want every core. if you must do mt, default should be 1/2 available cores. not sure why you like mt, they are not efficient.

2. with an mt running, shuts down one of the gpus running.

if you must keep mt going, please allow user to disable in preferences or automatically disable if you have more than one gpu.

Appears to be fixed. I'm getting the message that my card isn't good enough and I'm not getting GPU WU's.

nbody WU resources is showing its grabbing every core. That's precluding GPU work units from running once that MT nbody WU is running.
