Wuprop behaving as before.
But most likely the Hardware Drivers in mint-19 does not detect the hyperthreading in your 1950x. so you only run 16 active Tasks.

I have a nice Idea, which I do post here because this project is a statistic project.

Picture for the Badge: A bug with a "No" sign over it. You know, the sign with the diagonal running bar. And it does "no" out the bug.

Who gets it: anyone who has an account number smaller than 100 in at least one of his/her Projects.

a) is it possible to pull that info out of the stats you get from the Projects?
b) what do you think of the idea?

My 2 Cent for the Goofy-NCI:

Seb, just kick it out of list. You dont have to worry about your stats anymore, and the ones trying to get a nice colored star for GCC-NCI... Well they can hate us, but they cannot do anything against it.

WUPROP is YOUR Project. YOU have the right to take whatever action to keep your databases' sanity well.

And if a host is only running monkey and WUPROP your database will ignore his/her monkey time and thus have an "empty" WUPROP - which can easily put out by a simple programming mechanic.

For me it is okay if you just "kill" goofyx-NCI from list, for the time being it abused by multiclienting.

For me, having more than one boinc client on ONE computer is considered cheating - but as sometimes the host identify process goes awkward (especially when your computing "farm" consists of exact the same computers - for example 20 PIs) banning people which do "most likely" have multiclient sometimes hits the wrong ones.

So, just to repreat myself: My opinion: Kick goofyx-NCI out of the list. just let wuprop ignore it.

+1 million.
That feature is more than cool.

NOW I know what they used to shutdown the Borg Collective - it was SETI@home! *evilgrin*

As I see it, yes.

All info of FreeHAL, GPU projects, and the single CPU project will be taken into the database, and with the cpu-project it will be OK for the validator.

For overheating purposes I only use 3 of my 4 cores (I really HATE these CPU-fans provided by AMD) and for me everything is OK, so it does not count if you use 1 4 or 16 or zillion CPU cores as long as you use at least ONE for a CPU project.
7) Message boards : Number crunching : deadline (Message 185)

I think shorter WU time will do it.

Because the "average" machine for a non-nerd runs 4 hours a day, in which it is used for ~1 hour. Means spare time=3 hours. Multiplied with 5 days deadline means max runtime 15 hours for the average "this is my typing machine and internet" computer.

And doubling the deadline means very much longer to build a good database. You need more than 2 or 3 WUs to know if project x really needs only 2 hours on computer y because there MAY be workunits running much longer than the 2 or 3 already inside the database.

And there are much of these machines running for seti or maybe 2 or 3 other projects - it will be interesting to see WU runtimes on these machines for the different projects. Because with the help of this projects the not-so-average user with a slow machine can decide "hey my computer is also good enough to crunch for THIS or THAT science-project" without asking in the forum.

For example I found a Transmeta Efficéon Processor in the list - I didn't even knew that such a thing existed. Had to google it up ^.^

Ah, by the way, it is collecting data for the cpu-apps. Is there also an overview of the gpu-apps?
