Is there a way of running CP and SETI simultaneously ( as opposed them working in turns e.g. 60 min each ) and if not, why assign only a percentage of CPU to each and not all to each one so that they use all of it in each turn. What resources does the "Resource Share" refer to?


Thanks

If you assign CP with 75% and SETI with 25% then CP should run for 3 hours then SETI for 1 hour.

If you have a hyperthreaded processor there is some benefit to running 2 or more processes at the same time. BOINC uses this allowing each virtual processor to run a project.

Without Hyperthreading there is no throughput advantage to running 2 projects at the same time. It runs slower because cached memory shared over two processes would result in a lower cache hit rate than if just one project is running.
