Thats interesting, thanks for sharing, my PCs are just i5s of some description

I ran ECM on my Mac as I could get WUs for that platform - a couple of highlights
80,591.76 608.06 1,222.00

Hello, apologies as someone has answered this before but, canny find it !

I'd like to trick BOINCMGR into thinking I have lots of CPUs so it will download a heap of work, they will have long deadlines, so the PC can crunch away over the 3 week festive period, not connected the network. I was aiming for Yoyo WUs, are there any other active, work available long deadline WUs out there ?

To fool the project server into thinking you have more cores, include the <ncpus>?</ncpus> tags in your cc_config.xml. Like this...
<cc_config>
<options>
<ncpus>?</ncpus>
</options>
</cc_config>


Be sure to set the <project_max_concurrent>?</project_max_concurrent> tags in the app_config.xml in the project folder to the actual number of cores you have though. Like this
<app_config>
<project_max_concurrent>?</project_max_concurrent>
</app_config>

Be sure to reload the config files after the changes. Of course, if you plan to run more than one project, you'll need to make sure the total max current for all projects does not exceed the actual number of cores.

Rosetta has a 2 week deadline for some WUs.

Hi - thanksfor the info .. daft question of the day .. I cant seem to find the files, or search doesnt anyhow, Win7 box.

So should I create cc_config.xml, using notepad, which directory/folder/subfolder .. ?

For app_config.xml - is that to be created inside folder .. ProgramData -> BOINC -> projects -> http://www.rechenkraft.net_yoyo

cc_config.xml is in...
\ProgramData\BOINC

yoyo project folder, where app_config.xml to control yoyo goes, is...
\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.rechenkraft.net_yoyo

I am impressed with the xml files, thank you for sharing, hopefully enough cruncher ogr WUs now downloaded for my now 2 and a wee bit week off line crunching period,

Yoyo@home does have a maximum tasks downloaded type of message, possibly at 1000 WUs.

Yoyo complete times are all over the place from and 1 to 11 hours, still the WU deadline is 20th Jan 2016, (note to self, bunkering a real possibility for this project)

Hopefully the cruncher ogr 1m 2 gold stars badge will be a possibility (I have 185K to go to the 1m target)

Sounds like you've managed to get it all sorted out utopia-i. Surely after you've uploaded your Christmas bunker you'll get that badge!

I just realized I'm only 2500 away from my ECM Master badge. Guess I have run a few more.
