WuProp does not limit the number of Monkeys app instances you wish to run per host.
WuProp does limit the number of WuProp app instances you are permitted to run per host. Which has been clearly defined previously in this thread.

That was not my question. I am confused between Total Projects and or Total apps. Please do not confuse me further. (If you can not answer the question than please do not reply.)

Because the policy has been changed at least three times, I do not want to be accused of cheating again. Therefore I would appreciate a figure of how many instances of goofyxgridathome applications and perhaps two other projects can I run on my 56 core machine preferably from Sebastien the project Admin..

It's an NCI app and Goofy is grouped with all other NCI projects as far as WUProp is concerned.

There must be a non-NCI project running in the 6hr of WUProp task to get any and all hours counted for. Otherwise its marked as invalid, ignored or something.

If there were 20 NCI apps/projects you could run them all.

You can run 56 thousand clients with Goofy on them as long as WUProp is not attached. Well you could try.

That should answer the question you actually answered. You never actually asked how many client instances because there are only 4 NCI Goofy apps right now and I think that is your real question. So yes, your question was answered by the previous poster. In that case the policy has changed several times, written and unwritten.

I believe your information is a bit out of date.
NCI only hosts are OK so long as they adhere to the current rule.
Here are a few examples:
My i3-390m is running 200 instances of BOINC. Each one of the 200 instance of BOINC is connected to Goofyxgrid@home and running all 4 apps. Out of those 200 instances of BOINC I have 4 of them connected to WuProp. As the system has 4 processors.
For my Pentium M system with 1 processor it has 150 BOINC instances connected to Goofyxgrid and 1 to WuProp.

I believe that if anyone is unable to figure it out they should run however many they like and see what happens.

That rule is not current either, thus the mention about unwritten policy changes.

I guess I am just a bit dumb. By the answers I got to what I thought was a simple question turned out to be more complicated than I thought.

I did ask Sebastien to post his rules on the front page for everyone to see but I guess he is too busy to do that or he might not even have a rule since it has been changed a few times.

I left some clients running while Goofyxgrid@home was down that normally only run that and WuProp. So they were left only running WuProp. After about a week, or maybe two, those clients were banned. I believe that is the only issue I've had under the current rule set, but that could have existed previously. It also seems reasonable to stop accepting work from a host that has only errored tasks for a week or more.

Well ... this is interesting some Goofy Grid Monkeys stats have appeared on my WUPROP user account stats listing.

I have never signed up for that Project and have never run any of their applications.

How does this happen.
