Hi - is there an easy way for me to set up my account so different computers pick up different projects? I've got one PC that is a little too slow for some of the bigger GPU units, and one that should be fine with them.

Go to your account page and go to preferences. You can set a different venue for each computer with different tasks.

Then go to account page and your computers, pick details and change the venue for the computer at the bottom.

Hello
I have 9 tasks from various PrimeGrid sub-projects running for 4 CPUs.
I think that PrimeGrid servers shouldn't allow different tasks from sub-projets being either runned or suspended into clients' Boinc Managers.
This kind of competition bitwin sub-projects looks like messy.
I have 4 PCs running Boinc and I try to have 1 computer 1 project.

My main PC running PrimeGrid is only i3 3240 3.4 GHz 4cpu.

I'm scared that some of these can be delivered out of date.

Is there a way to forbid such a situation with Boinc Manager ?

In BOINC Manager's advanced view, Options -> Computing Preferences -> Store at least & Store up to an aditional. Set both to 0 and you won't get that huge buffer. This won't abort anything that you currently have, but from now on, it'll prevent your computer from getting more work than it can handle.

Also, given that you have an i3, it's strongly recommended that you either disable Hyper Threading in the BIOS or, if you can't / don't want to, set the "Use at max xx% of the CPUs" option to 50%, as it'll speed up your tasks by a lot. Don't do both, however, go for one solution or the other (preferably the disable HT one).


As for the multiple different projects, the server will send you whatever it wants, if you allow so. If you only want work from this or that subproject, you have to go in your preferences page and select only the ones you want. Do note that, if you pick more than one at a time, the server will randomly send you work from any of the available options, so keep that in mind.

Hello again
Thanks for your fast answer.

Also, given that you have an i3, it's strongly recommended that you either disable Hyper Threading in the BIOS or, if you can't / don't want to, set the "Use at max xx% of the CPUs" option to 50%, as it'll speed up your tasks by a lot. Don't do both, however, go for one solution or the other (preferably the disable HT one).

Done with Hyper Threading off.

Other point: I was afraid with over 100 days WU such as noticed by Boinc Manager.
In fact, real processing time is about 1/3rd of it.

It's not clear to me which question you're asking:

1) Why did I get so many tasks?

or

2) Why did I get tasks from different subprojects?

I think Rafael correctly answered the first question.

If the second question is actually the problem, and you would rather get tasks from only one of our subprojects, you should go to the PrimeGrid Preferences page and select only the project or projects you would like to run. You seem to have selected almost everything, and the server is trying to give you what you asked for. :)

Hi,

Ok, I understand that I should apply the same policy with PrimeGrid subprojects as I try to apply with Boinc Projects, which is "1 computer, 1 project", knowing that I have a 4 computers mini cluster running Boinc, avoiding differents projects competing for CPUs acces.
