Hi everyone!

I've just configured an app_config file, so that it simultaneusly runs 4 SOB and 4 TRP sieve tasks. The problem is that Boinc keeps downloading 8 SOB tasks instead of 4 as I would like.

What can I add to the app_config file to resolve the problem?

Thanks in advance!

Is it running all 8 of the SOB tasks at once, or just caching 4 of them?

No, it's running 4 SOB tasks as I've configured, but it downloads 8, caching 4 extra.

How can I force to download 4 tasks only at once?

Set the value for Tools -> Computing Preferences -> Network Usage (tab) -> "Max additional work buffer" to something really small like 0.01.

But, you probably already did that. If so, just abort the excess, and eventually boinc will figure out a reasonable amount of work to send to you.

Unfortunately, neither of both helps. It keeps downloading 8 SOB units. Plus when all TRPsieve units run out, it won't download any unless you abort 4 waiting SOB units.

Unresolvable, huh? :(

The only action you can take, is when you have 4 SoB's running, adjust PrimeGrid's preference here and deselect SoB until the 4 are almost ready.

It seems like the only viable option at the moment. Thanks for the piece of advice. That's exactly what I've done.

What if you changed both your caches to zero in the Boinc Manager?

Also IF you have more then one project AND the other one is out of work, you could set the percentage to zero and it will only get 4 units at a time, in your case, then check the other project for work, then get 4 more, etc, etc. I do this for my backup projects, I set the percentage to zero and then they ONLY getting work when my main project does not have any work, only downloading enough to fill my allocated cpu's then returning the finished units and going thru the process again. BUT be careful...if you do have only one project and have it set to zero, Boinc itself will set it to 100% no matter what your settings are!!!
