1) Message boards : Number crunching : Multicore tasks mess up day-night cycle (Message 70352)
Posted 14 Jan 2021 by v010dya
The way i normally run tasks on my main machine is:
1. During the night i close down most applications and set 100% CPU useage.
2. During the day i still allow the machine to use some CPU, about half of the cores.

However, multicore tasks mess up my work flow. What happens is that during the night BOINC downloads lots of 7 CPU tasks, and then during the day, even though i have set to use less than 7 cores those tasks, when started, do take 7 cores to themselves. I should really have control over how many cores should be used. Do i have to shut down network useage during the night, to disallow such a thing?

Wow. This was probably the least trivial place to find it. Thanks for help. I doubt i would have found it despite getting 1st honours software engineering degree, doing research, and now teaching online. I guess i can make a lesson about HCI about this. q;-)=

Hi. I have created a team, but have accidentally typed 4 w instead of 3 in the name of the site. Is there a way to fix that? I don't see any editing on the team page.
