Would it be possible to increase the Caches to say 50 Per CPU Core or even 40 if it wouldn't tax the Server anymore than it is already. Seems every morning I wake up I'm out of Collatz Wu's & have to wait for the Server to get Re-Started or whatever needs to be done to it to get it running again.

50 would give me a couple extra hr's to run, 40 an hour anyway so that would be better than nothing ... Pretty Please can we do that ...:)

The problem with increasing the number per core is that a single machine with a bad ATI driver install or screwed up app_info file will trash more WUs. If the problem is that it runs out of work, then my solution would be to double or triple the size of the WUs. That would also reduce the network bandwidth and lessen the load on the server since it would have less WUs to validate and assimilate.

That would be okay as long as the Credits Increase in Proportion to the size of the Wu, anything to give us a little longer run time before running out if the Server messes up ...
