You do know you can turn each kind off individually in the settings...right?

Run only the selected applications MilkyWay@Home: yes
MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation: no


But that doesn't select between single-core and multi-core N-Body, does it?


Yes it does, if you unselect the "N-Body Simulation" units you won't get any more multi-core wu's, on the other hand if you unselect the "MilkyWay@Home" units then you won't get any more single core wu's.

OK, it looks like I had both selected. I will try just the N-Body. Thanks.

No, it does not. With "MilkyWay@Home: yes", you will get single core MilkyWay@Home WUs (they are all single core), but not single core MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation WUs.

You can choose that already in your MilkyWay@Home preferences.

By definition here at MW N-Body wu's are multi-core wu's.

No, there's also a single core N-Body application, see applications page.

Always GPU. Way more processing power for the inputted energy. Downside is it is harder to code applications for it.

Another 4+ hour "Server can't open database" issue again. Please increase our WU limits.

Also, how about changing the scheduled communication time between request from 1m30s to something higher? Won't that help with the amount of hits the server is also taking on? If we can have more WU downloaded, it doesn't need to try and connect every 1m30s.

So how about doubling the 600 limit for GPUs to 1200?
