Message 86921 - Posted: 3 Aug 2015 | 19:51:50 UTC

Some of the GPU tasks I get run at "normal" priority, and others run at "low" priority. I would like to change my system so that all PrimeGrid GPU tasks run "above normal". How can I do this so it happens automatically?

You can try software like Process Tamer if you really feel there is a need to.

I was really looking for a BOINC option - as it does set most of my tasks to "low" priority. I wanted a way to alter that parameter.

There's no BOINC option that lets you do that, sorry.

ok,, however, I am still baffled that the GPU tasks atiGFN comes in low, while pps sieve comes in at normal priority - and with the gfn task needing only .171 part of a cpu, I'd like it to come in higher so it always gets its share first.

James, all GPU applications needs a bit of CPU usage to feed them.
Some GPU applications are less CPU hungry, some are more CPU intensive.
It also depends on what CPU is feeding what GPU (ie. slow CPU feeding fast GPU).

So, not all GPU apps are the same in terms of CPU usage and CPU priority.

You can play with Procces Tamer and see if it makes any difference.

You could also try Process Lasso

https://bitsum.com/processlasso/

It also controls I/O and memory priority.

It's deliberate that GPU tasks run at normal priority. They don't use much CPU but need to keep the GPU supplied with work full-time. Normal priority makes it more likely that the GPU is fully occupied.

But... how about the <no_priority_change> tag in cc_config? It won't help you go above normal, but at least it'll prevent apps from going into low, right?
