Hi

When starting, Amicable latest CPU mt app (1.2) doesn't suspend all running WUs on my Mac !



The Primegrid tasks are still running, but the numberfields + duchamp did suspend correctly when amicable started.

I tried to suspend manually the primegrid tasks then release them, but the same happens.

So obviously they are sharing the CPU, each primegrid is using half of one thread, and amicable is using what's left of the CPU...

I found one clue :


While boinc manager shows the primegring taks running "normally", boinctasks shows them running with high priority, there's probably a link .

It's something related to your BOINC client settings or/and PrimeGrid settings.

Thanks for the answer.

Fun fact : that amicable WU did finish in the night, followed by several others, and now it turns out that for some reason it decided to run amicable in "high priority" mode (strange because they all take around 1 hour to complete and it still has 2 days before deadline...) and guess what, now boinc did set the primegrid tasks on pause.

It's priority war :)
