Message 134072 - Posted: 20 Oct 2019 | 19:27:42 UTC

Hello all,

I currently have three CPU tasks assigned, each a different PrimeGrid sub-project. Both my web and local preferences are set to switch between tasks every 60 minutes, the default setting.

However, the first task in the list runs more than 60 minutes, both real world time and the time shown in the Elapsed column on the Tasks tab in the BOINC manager. I have to manually suspend it to give the other tasks a chance to run.

Am I misunderstanding this setting?

Thanks for the help,
Eric

It switches between different projects only. All your tasks are from one project (PrimeGrid), so no switching.

Thank you; that answers that. So it sounds like you either only run one task at a time, or manually switch among them then?

Yes, but from my point of view such manual micro-management is useless. Let the Boinc choose. It will automatically select which task must be run first, based on their estimated durations and deadlines. Unstarted tasks could be automatically aborted, this is normal procedure.
Also most peoples here run only one sub-project at time, it's simpler to manage.
