I was wondering if we could get an option in the SoB preferences to only allow x amount of work units per host.
WCG does this with the Clean Energy Project because of the intense disk access for that project.
I would like it on SoB (and maybe PSP) so that I could do other work while one core is busy for eight to ten days.
It may help (or not) on the amount of long work units being aborted if the default is set to one work unit per host.
Just a thought. Discussion?

It is feasibly by hand (setting boinc to use only one core, getting one SoB, changing prefs to other subprojects, allowing more cores to run, etc.), but I agree with you. Having that option would be great.

The option to do that is probably a custom one and may not even be customizable until a newer version of the backend BOINC. Since PrimeGrid is using an older version that has already been heavily customized it's hard for them to upgrade their server side to a newer version. Even though it's a noble quest you seek, it may be a far distance off into the future before that quest is even able to be envisioned.
