Message 37584 - Posted: 10 Dec 2018, 14:17:34 UTC

I was wondering if someone could help me with my app_config. I have read this section pretty thoroughly and cannot see what I've done wrong here. I'd like to limit each Atlas app to 4 CPUs, but it runs with either 8C or 32C (that might be Theory only, can't remember) no matter how I config the application.

Can you see an obvious mistake in this?

<app_config>
<app>
<name>ATLAS</name>
<max_concurrent>8</max_concurrent>
<app_name>ATLAS</app_name>
<plan_class>vbox64_mt_mcore_atlas</plan_class>
<avg_ncpus>4.0000</avg_ncpus>
</app>
</app_config>

<plan_class>vbox64_mt_mcore_atlas</plan_class>
<avg_ncpus>4.0000</avg_ncpus>
</app>
</app_config>

Based on your objectives you may use this one:
<app_config>
  <app>
    <name>ATLAS</name>
    <max_concurrent>8</max_concurrent>
  </app>
  <app_version>
    <app_name>ATLAS</app_name>
    <plan_class>vbox64_mt_mcore_atlas</plan_class>
    <avg_ncpus>4.0</avg_ncpus>
    <cmdline>--memory_size_mb 6600</cmdline>
  </app_version>
</app_config>

Don't forget "reload config files".

That did the trick, thank you so ever much. I was missing an app_version it appears (this is all still cryptic to me).

Is it also necessary to command line the necessary RAM? I've been having success (finally) running 8C and just letting it choose it's own RAM. The computer has 56 threads and 64 GB of RAM, and I rarely see it approaching using it all.

If i want to use an app_config.xml file for native Atlas tasks, i presume plan class is "native_mt", right?
Example: <plan_class>native_mt</plan_class>

The app name is still "ATLAS", correct?
Example: <app_name>ATLAS</app_name>

Thx!

Yes, that's right.

Beside that beta apps have to be allowed at the preferences page.
If VirtualBox is installed your host will get vbox tasks as well as native tasks.
