To make it work though you do need to attach to a 2nd cpu Project with a non zero resource share but set it to no new tasks otherwise Boinc can set the only cpu project to a default of 100% and you will have a boatload of workunits.

This doesn't matter anymore since the setting for max number of work-units was implemented.
You can even make your cache 10 plus 10 days big, but you will only get one piece of work.

I was lucky enough to have one of my two 1050Ti find a GFN-16, so I got my badge for this year. :-)
This is quite nice and absolutely enough.
I still have my elderly gear running to maybe - against all odds - find a Mega. This is FUN! :-D

How do you abort tasks remotely?

The same way you do anything remotely. [...]

You can also abort not started tasks via an account manager if you have your machine attached to one.
I'm using BAM!, and it lets me do so.
Quite handy, if you ask me.

Congrats to our lucky finder!

Michael:
In your posting 'The AP26 will be listed' should be 'The AP27...', I think.

10) Message boards : Number crunching : Better multi-threading (Message 132423)
Posted 345 days ago by Profile gemini8Project donor
Hi.
For me nothing seems to change apart from the fact that I have to go over my app_config files to apply the plan_class, as I use hyper-threading, but not on all of my machines.
Just switching the Boinc manager to only run on the number of physical cores is an option I don't want to use on anything than my main machine because it limits the throughput of other projects' tasks that actually benefit from running on all threads.
Having my machines running unattended has me needing to tweak things to the best and not to the options the server gives me.

Thanks anyway for making things easier for users that don't want to fiddle with complicated stuff!
