I thought I'd say hi to anyone reading this.
I just signed my laptop up to do some crunching for your project.

Perhaps you can help me.

I have a laptop running LinuxMint assigned to A@H. I have discovered that the tasks are set to a Very Low process priority. As a result, BOINC keeps seeing a CPU busy state stopping and starting the Task.

I can do a sudo renice -10 -p 1918, but that only effects that one process 1918 (that one task).

I think there is a way to set the process name to a -10 setting so as a new task is started with a new pid number, the process name (which remains the same) will kick in and give the process a higher priority.

My problem is I need some help. What is the command to accomplish this? ionice? If so, what is the command line? I tried ionice -c 2 -n 0 <process name>, but got a rejection because the <process name> was not a filename. Obviously, I am missing something in my studying/reading.

Thanks for the help.

Did you select "Yes, existing user"?

One way might be to change the cpu priority, so Boinc stops crunching and waiting less often. The default is 25%, meaning when there is less then 25% of the cpu free Boinc can run just fine, otherwise it stops and lets you do whatever else you are doing and then Boinc resumes. Change the priority thru the Boinc Manager, there could be a command line way but I don't know it, to say 15% and see if you can live with that. On my machines I have it set to zero% so Boinc crunches 24/7. I then set Boinc to NOT use all my cpu cores on the machines I use for other things, like this i7 8 core laptop. I have it set to only crunch using 5 of the 8 cores, it is a quad core with HT, so it THINKS it has 8 cores. Those 5 cores crunch full time and I still have good use of the laptop anytime I want to, and it doesn't overheat on me either. I do have a usb fan underneath the laptop too.

Hi Folks,
Just signed up and am processing first 2 tasks on GPU.
They seem to run very much like S@H AP tasks on GPU, suppose its that both are
CUDA tasks.
