You have a shiny new flag that's supposed to fix whatever is wrong with your client. Now what?
First, the V7 version of what was called a flag in the older clients is now a Slot Option
Slot options contain two elements (Name/Value) and usually look like this: core-priority idle
First element is the Name. Words are hyphenated, and usually give an idea of what it does.
Second is Value. Can be option (idle/low), switch (true/false) or value (x=?).
The main factor in where to place the Slot Option depends on whether you want it to apply to all slots or only one of them.
If you want to apply it to all slots (globally), it needs to go under Extra client options on the Expert tab.
Click Expert tab > click Add under Extra client options > enter Name & Value in the popup > click OK > click Save
If you want to have it apply to a single slot, you will use the Slots tab.
Click Slots tab > double-click desired slot > click Add under Extra slot options (expert only) > enter Name & Value in the popup > click OK > click OK > click Save.
One thing to keep in mind - if there is a conflict, the slot options entered under individual slots will override global slot options. This can be useful in certain situations. For example: running V6 on a machine with 8 GPU clients + SMP, the priority of the GPUs all have to be raised individually by changing core priority to low on each one.
With V7 this can be done by setting 2 options instead of 8.
First we set core-priority low globally, then we set core-priority idle for just the SMP slot.
The low setting that sets all clients to run at a slightly higher priority is overridden by the idle setting of the SMP slot, resulting in the desired effect - all GPUs running at elevated priority compared to SMP.
