Some time in the distant past I believe I had one central location (BOINC?) to set resource share for individual projects, but I can't seem to find that now. Am I forgetting something?

More specifically, how do I adjust resource share for MWAH? In the recent past it's been hogging resources like schoolyard bully, specifically preventing WCG from doing any work. That won't cut it for me, as I want to share time between human science and cosmology.

Thank you!

Sounds like it could be BAM on boincstats https://www.boincstats.com/, I've never used it.

In your MilkyWay@home preferences. But I wouldn't expect much from WCG right now since their so called tech team is working since over a month on getting the work generators to work again at full speed without having a clue on why they got so slow suddenly. That's likely the reason why MilkyWay gets so much ressources recently, WCG simply can't send you enough work.

I added this to the Options section of my cc_config.xml file and it is supposed to help

<rec_half_life_days>1.000000</rec_half_life_days>

But if WCG doesn't have any tasks it doesn't really matter what you do it will never balance out.

I processed a little over 100 OPNG tasks a day for the past month. As long as you keep asking for work every couple of minutes you are rewarded. 110 tasks today for the 9th.
