BOINC - getting project to run multiple GPU tasks

I'm seeing people talking about getting a GPU project (in this case NumberFields@Home) to run multiple GPU tasks simultaneously.  I can only get mine to run 1 at a time, but my GPU is not anywhere near maxed out.  How do I configure it to pull in more work?  

 

Copy the code below into Notepad and save as app_config.xml  in the numberfields project folder.

 

<app_config>
    <app>
        <name> GetDecics </name>
        <gpu_versions>
            <gpu_usage> 0.5 </gpu_usage>
            <cpu_usage> 1 </cpu_usage>
        </gpu_versions>
    </app>
</app_config>

 

EDIT -  you might have to tell Boinc manager to read the config file after you make it.

That did it.  Sadly, it appears to not be a case of an underutilized card; rather, it's utilizing the CUDA cores almost exclusively, which doesn't impact my card temps like it does with F@H.  My temps are the same with two tasks as they were with one task.

yea the same here my 2060's temps. are about 10-12C lower than they are running F@H. good thing is the fans are not as loud. 🙂
