Re: HCC GPU app close to going live IT HAS LAUNCHED

said by SrsBsns:

What does the avg_ncpus and max_ncpus command do in the app_info.xml files?

I run GPU crunching only and not sure if they are needed. I cant seem to wrap my head around what they do.

You should stop using app_info but instead use app_config.

app_config.xml (example if you have 7970 & 8 core CPU):
<app_config>
<app>
<name>hcc1</name>
<max_concurrent>10</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>.10</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.8</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>
 

Nanoprobe See Profile and I, have been running 10 instances on our 7970 with 8 core cpu.

To answer your question, avg_ncpus and max_ncpus, they are used for allocating CPU %. So to run 10 instance on an 8 core cpu, your ave and max would be .80
