    Core Priority for SMP and GPU clients

    Post by B2K24 on Sat Jul 10, 2010 8:55 pm

    When I manually ran the F@H clients(before using FAH GPU Tracker V2) during -configonly their was setting
    Core Priority (idle/low) [idle]?

    idle is ok for SMP client but how to make low Core Priority for GPU2/3 clients?

    I get about a 3 sec difference better TPF on GPU3 with SMP stopped.
    I know it's not much but every bit helps.

    Code:
    [22:03:31] - Calling '.\FahCore_a3.exe -dir work/ -nice 19 -suffix 01 -np 8 -priority 96 -nocpulock -checkpoint 3 -forceasm -verbose -lifeline 2412 -version 630'

    Code:
    [01:40:41] - Calling '.\FahCore_15.exe -dir work/ -suffix 01 -nice 19 -priority 96 -nocpulock -checkpoint 3 -forceasm -verbose -lifeline 2572 -version 630'

    This is a problem with the Tracker's initial config. In 3.07 it sets the priority of all clients to idle. I have changed this in 3.08, which I will release as stable in a day or two if no other bugs are found in 3.07.
