Hello PGers,

Does anyone know the name of the Genefer applications to enter in the app_config.xml file? Specifically, <app_version><app_name>

I've tried gc[xx], Genefer[xx], and genefer_wr. BOINC Manager doesn't like any iteration. Maybe it's as simple as Genefer projects cannot be multi-threaded.

Thanks and happy crunching!

Look all the way left to the menu. Under "Returning Participants" is a link to the Applications page. All of the internal application names you need for app_config.xml or app_info.xml are listed there next to the human-friendly application names.

Hi Michael,

Thank you for the guidance. It appears I would also need to add the version name in parentheses in the <plan_class> element.

i.e., For PPS (Sieve) -- "pps_sr2sieve" .. <plan_class>cpuPPSsieve</plan_class>

Best,
Brendon

Yes, and the plan class names can be found in the same place. :)

If it has "cpu" in the plan class name, that's for the CPU version of the app.

If it has "cuda" in the plan class name, that's for Nvidia GPUs.

If it has "ati" in the plan class name, that's for ATI/AMD GPUs.

I missed this from your original message:

Maybe it's as simple as Genefer projects cannot be multi-threaded.


That actually is true. There's no way to specify multithreading on GPU apps, since, by definition, anything running on a GPU is already massively multi-threaded. The CPU version of Genefer doesn't support multithreading, although it might in the future. Only the LLR apps support multithreading.

Wonderful insight!
Certainly helps my CPU benchmark efforts and settles my curiosity as to why some applications responded to increased threads while others remained unfazed.

Hi,

save it to app_config.xml

<app_config>
<app>
<name>genefer15</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>1</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

Save the file into your Boinc project folder. For example on Windows systems
"C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.primegrid.com"
Normaly this folders are hidden on Windows file systems.
