Client app configuration
This doc describes a new feature that will allow volunteers to adjust application scheduling parameters.
Note: this is separate from the anonymous platform mechanism.
A volunteer can configure a project's apps by putting a file app_config.xml in the project's directory. This file has the following form:
<app_config> <app> <name>name</name> <max_concurrent>N</max_concurrent> <gpu_versions> <gpu_usage>.25</gpu_usage> <cpu_usage>.1</cpu_usage> </gpu_versions> </app> </app_config>
<name>: the short name of an application.
<max_concurrent>: a limit on the number of concurrent jobs for that application.
<gpu_versions>: the <gpu_usage> and <cpu_usage> elements specify the number of device instances used by GPU app versions. Note: there is no provision for specifying this per GPU type or per device.
Note2: The placement of the app_config.xml is in its respective project folder, e.g. for WorldCommunityGrid it goes into .\projects\www.worldcommunitygrid.org
