Feature request - Suspend X CPUs when computer is in use
Posted 29 Mar 2018 by matafan
The "suspend when computer is in use" option is all or nothing: either all the allowed CPUs are used, or none. Instead, it would be nice if we were able to specify how many CPUs should be suspended when the computer is in use.
In my case for example, my system has 16 cores (32 threads). For my day-to-day usage, it's perfectly usable with 30 threads running Boinc. So I would like Boinc to use all 32 threads when the computer is not in use, and only 30 when it is. In the rare occasion where more capacity is required, I would simply suspend Boinc completely.
