You can use the '<max_concurrent>' flag in an app_config.xml file, described in the application configuration section of the user manual.

Isn't the default setting - without switches via the project preferences (e.g. Einstein@Home) or using an app_info.xml or app_config.xml - just one task per GPU? Or do you have a videocard with more than one GPU?
Please do not private message me for tech support. Use the forums for that. Tech PMs will be ignored.
