Yep I do the same thing. Used to keep 4 micro PCs under my desk during the winter. A little counter productive in the summer, unfortunately. :)

Hi Krzysztof. Dutch Power Cows is having their "stampede" (a call-to-arms to focus on a single project for a month) this year on your project. You can expect our current output for the rest of this month. Good to hear your server(s) can handle the pummeling. :) In the distant past we've been known to practically DDOS a project with our stampedes. :D

Ah I was wondering who all the heavy weights were that recently moved in. Glad to hear the hardware upgrades are keeping up.

Sure send them out! I could have them done in about 3 days.

It’s not about processors running idle, I already have a couple 0 weight backup projects. Nor is it about maintaining rank among the project participants. It’s about driving all my resources towards the project I’d like to support most. It’s in the best interest of the project, too. Because during an extended outage we could all keep working on Universe tasks rather than shift to a backup project.

Anyway, not looking to make a big thing about it. Just figured I’d pose the question. Thanks to Krzysztof for upping the limit!

Have a nice weekend everyone.

Thanks, looks like it bumped to 35 queued tasks per thread? Is that right? That helps but ideally I'd like to keep say 3 days worth in queue. That would be about 72 tasks per thread on my hardware.

Ok thanks. That seems to match what I’m seeing. Do you think there’s any interest on the project maintainers side to increase that number? I’m assuming it was formulated years ago before the high core/thread count CPUs we have today. If so is this the place to request it?

Is there a way to increase the number of tasks I can keep in my queue? I'd like to keep a few days worth so if there's an outage with the project servers I can keep crunching until they get it sorted out. Currently, with my 16 thread CPU it'll only let me keep about 350 tasks waiting, which I can complete in about 15 hours. I've adjusted
work_buf_min_days 
and
work_buf_additional_days 
but I just get a "This computer has reached a limit on tasks in progress" message from the server. The only way I've been able to pull more is by artificially boosting my
ncpus 
count but that has unintended consequences I don't like.

Well this is a bummer. I scaled back my systems over the summer as my solar array couldn’t keep up and I’ve been wondering why my credit is half what it was now that I’ve ramped back up. There’s no plan to reverse this change at least while there’s still no ULX tasks?
