Something that can be turned on in the app_config.xml file by:

<app>
<name>FMP-CNN</name>
<max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
<fraction_done_exact/>
</app>
<app_version>
<app_name>FMP-CNN</app_name>
<avg_ncpus>8</avg_ncpus>
<cmdline>-t8</cmdline>
</app_version>

Not sure what the actual app_name is and didn't find it in the forums after a search.

I believe you can find it in the client state xml file in the root Data directory.

Thanks for the tip.

<app>
<name>exact_bn_sfmp</name>
<user_friendly_name>EXACT Batch Norm With Scaled FMP CNN Trainer</user_friendly_name>
<non_cpu_intensive>0</non_cpu_intensive>
</app>

Now, wonder if it will actually multi-thread.

It will probably just die immediately if they didn't code for multi, but I'll test it on one.
