Hmmm. I guess I should have my hosts with more than 10 cores doing something else to keep them busy. :)

Unless the admin is interested in setting the limit to at least match the number of CPU's a host happens to have.

Hey Mumps! Sorry about that. I just bumped it up to 16.

Thanks. You may not have noticed, but some of my hosts actually have 24 cores. 8-)

No, I hadn't noticed. I will bump it up to 24 when I get home tonight. Thanks!

If it's of concern to have other hosts, with fewer cores, having 24 jobs waiting, it's fine to leave the setting lower. I was more thinking about getting it to just match the number of Procs a given host has. I noticed many of my 4 thread boxes now had 16 tasks, so there's going to be many more waiting on other hosts out there. And I recall you not wanting to waste much effort in case some of the WU's end up being numbers that get factored elsewhere and represent work no longer needed.

As I mentioned, BOINC is good at allowing you to share resources with other projects. So it's not a big deal to me if I spend a couple cores on something else. :-)

That's funny, my computers aren't exhibiting that behavior. But you may have a point, especially with new users who attach to the project for the first time.
