Hi there,

Thanks for starting this fun project! Sorry to have my first post here be a problem, but at least I searched the forum first, right? :-)

Here is the issue: I have attached a 8 core machine, a quad core ARM device and a dual core ARM device. The problem is that only the quad core ARM device uses the expected number of tasks, namely 4. The 8 core Intel machine will only run 4 tasks, and the dual core ARM device is running 4 as well!

Any suggestions?

Thank you very much.

Answer is simple.
At this monent this project has only NCI apps.
It's mean that it's never mind how many cores you have, because you will crunch only 1 WU from every app.
In next 3-4 days I should be ready to start splited project: NCI and CPU
