Hi everyone,

is it possible to get a % selector for the delivered WU between Mini Collatz and "Bigger" Collatz ?

My Comp is NOT running day & night and so I prefer sometimes smaller WU´s and get back to work again, on weekend I like the bigger one´s, because I´ve got plenty of time to let them run.

But here is the catch, if I only request big WU´s I´ve got way to many and no chance to finish them within my normal week schedule.
So they timeout or I abort them.

Would it be not much easier for anyone to make a workload selector between Mini & Bigger WU´s with a % slider who gives you e.g. 20% Big Collatz an 80% Mini Collatz ?
Or 0/100 %, 10/90 %, 30/70 %, 40/60 % etc ?

With this anybody could plan the WU load much more precise, and bend it into the right timeframe.

I know there is a option to get only one type of mini or big ... but so you could get both, without letting one down ;)

Please if there is any chance to get a % selector, make it happen :)

Thanks & Greets from Germany

All good ideas. Unfortunately, all of them are changes to the BOINC server scheduling software. My suggestion would be to suggest those changes to the boinc_dev mailing list and see what the development team at Berkeley has to say about it. I know they have made scheduler changes int eh 6.13.x releases because testers are finding issues with getting CUDA work the last I checked, so DA and team are not opposed to improving the scheduler.
