You can have boinc suspend tasks by sending SIGSTOP rather than using BOINC's checkpointing feature and killing them (See Advanced>Preferences>Disk and memory usage> [tick] Leave applications in memory while suspended). The task stays in memory and when it resumes, it simply continues where it was stopped. Obviously does not work across reboots.llagos hat geschrieben:what!? well.. that explains it all.... this reminds me of a nice-to-have feature asked on the boinc manager, like "run until finish", when using dual core machines... one core for switching tasks, the other one for tasks with these kind of features, or your "favourites/priority" tasks...
Case closed, I guess... (until the dev of boinc manager realize this)
Thanks for the reply.
Now onto the problem I'm having - has anyone been successful in running Muon on amd64?
Well this is the problem. It's showing up in the task manager, but after a minute or two, it's not consuming any CPU. BOINC sees it as running and muon.exe is resident in the memory, but isn't doing anything. Where should I go looking for error messages?yoyo hat geschrieben:Everything is ok, if the muon process still consumes cpu time in taskmanager (assuming you are running Windows).
