Right. I thought OP was under the impression people with very high RAC and/or hosts processing larger numbers of WUs were using app_info XMLs to tell BOINC to run more WUs for this project than just 2 at a time. \r\n\r\nApologies if I misunderstood. Perhaps there has been some update to BOINC's handling of NCI applications of which I was unaware.

The admin of FreeHAL did not take kindly to people using cc_config (or app_data, which came later) to show <ncpus> as a number greater than logical threads. He saw it as "cheating" and even went so far as to manually remove people's credit. Needless to say, the project shut down, in no small part because of his asinine idea of "project management."\r\n\r\nNewer versions of BOINC now permit app_info XMLs in order to run tasks as anonymous platform, but in most cases (especially with optimised apps) this is not necessary.\r\n\r\nI am not sure about modifying these files to run one or more task per core. I would try, but doubt it would do much good - plus, the project admin may have something to say about how such practice could affect app activity. \r\n\r\nFor example, running more than one instance of the QCN nci app simultaneously would be pointless. \r\n\r\nIt's interesting, though, that my hosts with 4, 8, 8, and 12 threads are each processing only two tasks at a time. Perhaps it's that this is still a relatively new project.
