Really? How many threads?
I'm running "Garli" on my 4Ps and one of the boxes is only registering seven threads and the other box is only registering one thread, but at the most they're only pulling 3-4GB of memory. I asked in the project's message board if there was a dearth of WUs cause I was hoping to see all my threads busy with Lattice work...but I didn't/don't.
That being said, it finally dawned on me, in my limited experience with BOINC'ing, that I REALLY should be scheduling more than one project on a given machine, especially my 4Ps, to ensure that I have all threads active ALL of the time. So, I reloaded Milky Way, prior to reading the this month's projects, just to fill up the rest of the threads...HOWEVER, I still didn't get all 64 threads used up by both Lattice and MW since MW didn't have enough WUs to go around for my 128 threads (between the two machines); so, I guess I'll load Convector back up and help out for the rest of the month with that.
I know there are lists of all kinds out there, lists created by OCD/AR people, so that makes me wonder if there's a list that would give me some idea of which projects continuously produce WUs that keep up with demand; or, I could just load up a crap load of projects just to ensure that I always have all 64 threads, per machine, active at all times.
Don't ask me why it took so long...and it makes me wonder how many times my CPUs have been idle!
