Tasks are allocated to a given computer system by the server at the time they are issued.
While it it is possible to move them to a different computer, this often confuses the system. The more different the system, the worse it is.
Best to just let the original computer finish them.

Don't worry, this isn't all that obvious.

do you know if this is supported:


CPU is supported, GPU work is not supported by CPDN.

Those with more knowledge than I say that it probably wouldn't be worth writing/compiling the code to run on GPUs because they are not very good at the type of computation needed for CPDN where each calculation depends on the previous one making the parallel power of GPUs redundant. (This is assuming I have understood what they have said correctly!
