Why only 1 WU per MACHINE vs CPU?

I just came back to WuProp after a LONG time.. I thought I remembered it used to allow 1 WU per CPU

It seems sort of a waste to only do 1 WU per client vs per CPU

If someone has 6, 8, or 12 CPUs, why not 6-12 WUs per machine?

It always has been 1 task per computer. It records ALL active project tasks across ALL THE CPU's CORES while running.

Because you'd be measuring exactly the same thing multiple times :)

Cheers,

I will ask here.
I have 2 boinc running on one host. This is to give me more flexibility setting CPU per project as well separate CPU from GPU computing.
And here I have problem. WUProp runs on one boinc (GPU + Radioactive + vLHC) and it counts well, but second boinc with CPU projects (Leiden for now) is not calculated.
IF I run WUProp on other boinc it gives me only errors.
Is there any way to count second boinc WUs?
