It appears that behavior has changed since MW@home came back online. Before the outage I had two projects, MW@Home and Einstein@Home. They seemed to share my computer reasonably. I was collecting credits daily for both projects. I would see a mix of Einstein and MilkyWay tasks. There would be up to 8 total, reasonable on my 8 Core i7 running Linux. When an 8 CPU n-body simulation started, all the others would go into "waiting to run" status until the simulation finished.

Now it's different since M@Home came back. I see 8 Einstein tasks and 8 MW tasks. The Einstein tasks never seem to get any CPU time. When the MW 8 CPU n-body simulation runs, everything else waits. When the simulation finishes, only the MW tasks, usually 7 separation runs, seem to advance. This happens until one of the MW tasks completes, then another 8 CPU n-body simulation comes along to make the cycle repeat again.

Meanwhile, it has been days since I collected any Einstein credits. I don't think the tasks are running.

Is their some way to make sharing more equitable again?

TIA
