Man this is frustrating.
The CPU load from the gpu tasks is variable. That is why the CPU load is jumping around.
I would set your max number of processors to 75% and this allows simap to run tasks while keeping CPU reserved for whatever Einstein may need.
Tools-> Computing Preferences-> Proc Usage Tab -> on multiproc systems use X %. On my i7 system I have it set to 87.5 and on my phenom II its set to 75%. This way Einstein still runs at a decent GPU load. On my phenom ii system I had it set to 100% but my gpu load had dropped off, I found that reserving a core in this manner allowed Einstein to run faster.
This will allow you to run simap and einstein.
Side note: Anyone else's WCG tasks taking forever to upload?
Also, this needs to be in the OP:
Be sure to go to the project preferences page at Einstein website and set it to only get "Binary Radio Pulsar Search" tasks, or set to GPU only tasks
Otherwise people end up with a ton of Einstein CPU WUs competing with either Simap or WCG, in my case both...Edited by Biorganic - 5/5/13 at 7:53am
