An app_config.xml file in this project's folder.

For reference Cosmology FAQ has an example. It just needs the app name updated for any other app
http://www.cosmologyathome.org/faq.php

<app_config>
    <app>
        <name>camb_boinc2docker</name>
        <max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
    </app>
    <app_version>
        <app_name>camb_boinc2docker</app_name>
        <plan_class>vbox64_mt</plan_class>
        <avg_ncpus>2</avg_ncpus>
    </app_version>
</app_config>


This is what would be needed for limit # of concurrent tasks

<app_config>
    <app>
        <name>camb_boinc2docker</name>
        <max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
    </app>
</app_config>


To get the name, Read the app_config files from w/in BOINC Client. Check the Event log and an error will tell you exactly the name to enter in the app_config file.

Or more memory.
I try to have 1-2GB per thread for BOINC because many apps do require even more memory than 307mb.

You have ~500mb per thread while each takes 307mb for me in Linux. Minus OS, GPU, other stuff and BOINC setting to not use all 100%, then yeah. Normal.
5) Message boards : Number crunching : Server gives too many tasks. (Message 113)

That host only has 8 tasks.

app_config does nothing on how many tasks are downloaded, only how many to concurrently be running at once.

I thought it was spam accounts when I saw I had an account over 2k but it was just the team founders and teams. One less step for us. Something I wish more projects would do. Thanks.

Mine starting to complete and validate after 4 hours 7 minutes.
The 40 credits are better than 8 but still the worst paying CPU project, a low paying project like TN-Grid gives 137 credits for 3 hours and 15 minutes on the same machine.

Haven't seen any issues with tasks using more than 100% CPU.


I'd say the worst was the 2nd batch of tasks from Ramanujan Machine for 8-9 credits. But yeah, pretty low.
