i have cpdn, bbc climate change and seti all running in my boinc. because of the sheer size of the wu, i have given the bbc climate change 50% of my processor time, with the other 2 getting 25% each.
unfortunately, the cpdn process seems to be constantly working, without letting the others have a look-in. i have all my preferences on all 3 projects set to change every 60 minutes, and have checked and double checked and updated from within boinc to make sure all settings are current.
i have seen other posts relating to deadlines looming and getting priority, but both bbc clim and cpdn have deadlines of jan \'07 and the bbc project showing double the amount of hours needed to complete than cpdn.
in order to get anything else to run, i have to go into boinc and suspend the cpdn so the pre-empted projects get a chance to start. sometimes even when i do this, as soon as i resume the cpdn it will immediately start running again.
its frustrating....

You\'re probably being over-ambitious running CPDN, CCE and SETI on your 998MHz system. Based on your current secs/TS your CPDN model will take more than 200 days to complete if it\'s run exclusively. That also suggests that the CCE model will take well over a year.

I suspect that CPDN is running in preference to CCE because BOINC has worked out that CPDN can meet its deadline and CCE can\'t.

It may be an idea to abort either the CPDN or the CCE - if you do, pick the one you\'ve done least work for.
