I am seeing one project dominate the active tasks for quite a while over another. In searching internet I see that setting project priorities of one project vs another can break my observed trend,

However, I am using boinc manager 7.22 openSUSE package linux and I see no means of setting priorities for individual projects. Some internet threads say to go to project property tab. The tab in my client only displays items and has no means to alter anything.

Where are individual project priority setting for individual projects in boinc manager 7.22 linux?

thanks, tom kosvic

I believe it's more a website setting; in your account settings on each project's site. And each project sets its own resource share value. (The default number is 100 for each one.)

Over a long enough period of time, work done on different projects should average out to reflect the work share figure set on the individual project websites. (I have no idea what happens if using an account manager such as SU when I think all bets are off.) Where this runs into problems is with projects that have wildly differing deadlines and length of tasks. CPDN used to have deadlines of around a year which was a hangover from the days when tasks taking three months or longer was not unusual. CPDN have recently reduced deadlines to just over three months at least for the most recent batch. (Still too long in my view.) Runtime of the most recent batch is about 4.5days on fastest machines and 45 on the odd dinosaur. This means a slow machine that only runs during the week during work hours for instance will not complete a task before the deadline. Some projects only have work intermittently which can further mess with what you see happening on your box.
