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

said by DadeMurphy:

Since I had a power outage today I decided to change over from an app_info setup to an app_config setup. I used the configuration below, let me know what you think.

<app_config>
<app>
<name>hcc1</name>
<max_concurrent>10</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>.2</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.8</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>
 

System hardware

Intel Core i7 2600K
2 x ATI Radeon HD7950
16GB RAM

Also tomorrow I'm going to be installing a GTX 580 into my workstation, it's a dual Xeon E5440 box with 12GB of RAM. I'm thinking since the Nvidia line is so much weaker in the compute space that this box will likely run a mix of gpu and cpu tasks. What are your thoughts?

Your app_config looks good as a starting point. Increase as needed. You will probably end up running 7 instances for each gpu.

For your workstation, you can use this:
<app_config>
<app>
<name>hcc1</name>
<max_concurrent>2</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>.50</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>1</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>
 

In my experience with 580, 2 was the max.
