While trolling the message boards, I discovered the topic of being able to multithread CPU genefer now.. I can't seem to get it to work.

I have a 4 core i5-6500 this is what I put in my app_config file to run gfn17mega:

<app_version>
<app_name>genefer17mega</app_name>
<cmdline>-nt 4</cmdline>
<plan_class>cpuGFN17MEGA</plan_class>
<avg_ncpus>4</avg_ncpus>
</app_version>

It still only runs on one core. I have rebooted, had boinc read the config files and have suspended and restarted tasks but it still doesn't work. I get normal llr to work with no problems. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks!

EDIT: Nevermind, I guess it only works on GFN 21

The multithreading is only for GFN21 - it's the CPU algorithm that GFN21 uses. If we allowed CPU execution for GFN22 I believe it would apply there as well. I did the same thing as you and then asked about it in the admin chat. While the program might think it's multithreading on other n's, it really isn't.

One other thing is that it usually works on NEW workunits not on any existing ones you have on your pc. Alot of people abort the wu's they have and get new ones when they do config files. But if it only works on GFN21 units anyway then nothing can help.

I have found that if you tell BOINC to read the config files, then suspend and resume the task it will use the new settings. In this case or when I have a problem, I do start a new task.

This wasn't needed during testing with app_info, but now that we're in production and you can use app_config instead, you'll need to include a <plan_class> tag:

<app_config>
<app_version>
<app_name>genefer</app_name>
<cmdline>-nt 4</cmdline>
<plan_class>cpuGFN21</plan_class>
<avg_ncpus>4</avg_ncpus>
</app_version>
</app_config>


App names and plan_class names can be found on our applications page.


When I saw the last line, I just assumed that it would work with any GFN's. I ended up trying it with each one till I saw it only worked with GFN 21.

Thank you for the help Jim and mikey!

It only will work if you have "keep suspended tasks in memory" turned off. If it's on, you'll need to turn it off, suspend the task, and then turn it back on.
