1) Questions and Answers : Wish list : Boinc manager : force a task to run now (Message 7560)
Posted 9 Dec 2008 by kriki
Post:
In the tab "Tasks" of the Boinc manager, there is the possibility to Suspend a task.
But it would be nice to have a button to force a task to run (also stopping another if needed) or to change the priority of the task to high.
Why?
It happens I have a task that will finish in a few minutes but because of the swapping between tasks it will not be relaunched for a long time. There is a way 'simulate' this and that is to suspend all the other tasks and after that to undo the suspension, but this is a little 'overkill'.

Thank you for the information.
I will just wait until the 'problem' fixes itself.

What is a few WU's?.
I already run at least 10 WU's in the last week or 2 and this still happens.

I have some strange "problem":
When I get a task from milkyway@home, it says that it needs 400 to 500 hours to complete. Like today (8/12/2008) I have a task that should complete before 11/12/2008, but it will take about 480 hours. The Boinc manager runs it in high priority (480 hours and it has to be finished in 3 days!). But after little more than 1 hour it has finished.
Is this a bug or is this a way to 'speed up' the calculation of the milkyway@home-tasks, giving them higher priority over other projects?
