Message 63564 - Posted: 14 May 2015, 5:00:05 UTC

could someone tell me how to disable nbody tasks from being fetched by boinc ? they clog up my system for hours on end if i dont check boinc as they stay at 100% on 4 cores and never finish, one time i came back to my computer to see it was stuck for 17hours. my computer does not like them.

so please how can i disable them ?

From the home page, your account, Preferences for this project MilkyWay@Home preferences, Edit MilkyWay@Home preferences, and you will see this:

Run only the selected applications
MilkyWay@Home
MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation
Milkyway@Home Separation
Milkyway@Home Separation (Modified Fit)

uncheck the n-body simulation box, save the changes and from then on no more n-body tasks will come your way.

Also, make certain that there is not a check mark in the "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?"

Are all 'windows' users having problems with nbody ??????. It seems to be working fine for other OS's.

I had to stop taking workunits from nboby after watching one run for 7hrs plus just to see if it would finish !!!

No some people say they only see a 5% or so error rate, others see more and I'm guessing some see less. Statistically less than 10% of crunchers ever come to the message boards, whether they have problems or not, so we may not be seeing the full picture. I'm guessing the project thinks they are working okay though as they keep releasing new versions.

There is a NEW thread in the News section about Windows users and the N-Body tasks, EVERY Windows user running n-body tasks should read it:

Yes it is, there has been several attempts to get people to participate but they just don't.
