Hi,
I'm looking for a way to not to use the gpu only in 7:00 to 18:00 on Monday to Friday, while the workstation is used for regular work and cpu-projects.
Is there a possibility to do that?
Best regards

I do not think it is possible to schedule the CPU and GPU separate. It is all or nothing.

Seems like that request is one at the main (Berkeley) BOINC forums that keeps being asked for, but no one has found a way to program it into the BOINC code after all these years.

Many thanks for the answer. Too bad. Then I continue to use a virtual machine in the CPU-only time via VirtualBox.

One could start at 07:00 a nothing doing program called e.g. suspendGPU.bat and add that to
BOINC's exclusive applications suspending the GPU and let it run for 39600 seconds.
Something like this adding to the Task Scheduler when running on Windows:

@echo off
timeout /t 39600 /NOBREAK >NUL
exit

Maybe there's another way by a small executable. But I have no idea about programming.

<exclusive_gpu_app>important.exe</exclusive_gpu_app>
BOINC will suspend use of GPUs whenever the executable is running.

Client configuration BOINC

Using Ubuntu LTS on the machine. If anyone in the community knows how to do and wants to help ..
