SoB LLR Silver: Earned 100,000 credits (464,285)

I used to run SoB years ago.
I'm just now getting back into it.

I mistakenly thought my machine had hyperthreading and setup an app_config.xml to run one task at a time on all cores/threads.

I've since deleted that file, clicked Options > Read config files but the Tasks tab still showed four tasks with only 1 running on 4 CPUs.

I then came to this site and edited my preferences.
On multiprocessors, use at most: > 1

Now, BOINC shows 4 tasks running on 4 CPUs.


How can I get things back to original settings, 1 task per core, without losing the work already done?

On another side, I've clicked Update in BOINC several times an no stats seem to have changed here on this site or in BOINC.


Thanks in advance for the assist.



Never mind.
All work just got deleted by mistake.

Welcome,sentinel!
You could actually go to options and click on 'read config files' after you've changed your app_config.

Yes, I did all of that.
After the data was already gone I found this in the BOINC docs.

https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Client_configuration
If you remove app_config.xml, or one of its entries, you must reset the project in order to restore the proper values.


What I was trying to do was to reset the BOINC software, NOT download any new work and import the partially completed work.

I thought I had copy/pasted the proper task files but I thought wrong.
All of the project folder's contents were shredded and it seems that there is no mechanism to download the work from the server and start where I left off.

Oh well, live and learn.

Drain a cache first before doing anything drastic, or at least abort any non-started tasks. You cannot do anything clever like copy local files about.
