Quote from: hucker on May 24, 2022, 12:21:40 PMI can see 47 just now, but it's not using the CPU much when everything is running. It's during startup it was taking ages, and that had 4.5% CPU usage, which indicates only 1 of 24 cores. Perhaps the reading of history is only done in one thread?
Quote from: hucker on May 24, 2022, 02:10:25 PMI guess startup must be different and uses one thread to read in all the history to begin with.Still never found out why the whole program waits for one computer to respond if they're in different threads! I had to get round it by making them all faster - SSDs/NVMEs and replacement network cables. A single lost packet and Boinctasks falls asleep.
Quote from: hucker on May 24, 2022, 03:38:03 PMI don't have a particular "bad computer". Any one of them could have a delay if it decides to load up several vbox tasks at once, even on an SSD. So short of having a group for every PC, that isn't going to work.At some point, Boinctasks decides a computer is not responding and gives it a red lightning bolt, and continues to display the rest. Can it not just do that as soon as one isn't responding? Can I set a timeout of 1 second somewhere?

Quote from: fred on May 24, 2022, 02:33:39 PMA way around this is select one computer or move a bad computer to another group.

I've read the whole manual! I now have Boinctasks falling asleep again, but I've pinged all the remote computers and nothing loses any packets, which annoyed it before. The worst is my mobiles on wireless which do ping up to 300ms often, and sometimes 1000ms. I want to try the phones in another group to see if that helps. That will then only block that group from displaying and leave the 7 PCs displayed?
