9-10-2011 14:25:58 LHC@home 1.0 General prefs: from LHC@home 1.0 (last modified 09-Oct-2011 14:24:25)
9-10-2011 14:25:58 LHC@home 1.0 Computer location: home
9-10-2011 14:25:58 LHC@home 1.0 General prefs: no separate prefs for home; using your defaults
9-10-2011 14:25:58 Preferences:
9-10-2011 14:25:58 max memory usage when active: 3326.39MB
9-10-2011 14:25:58 max memory usage when idle: 3326.39MB
9-10-2011 14:25:58 max disk usage: 35.14GB
9-10-2011 14:25:58 suspend work if non-BOINC CPU load exceeds 25 %
9-10-2011 14:25:58 (to change preferences, visit the web site of an attached project, or select Preferences in the Manager)

Problem is that on this project you can't set the boinc cpu load limit but it gets put in the profile after updating anyway. Could you update the website so that we can set the limit correctly? Or remove it van the generated profile?
I would like option 1 ;)
I fixed my problem by updating a other project computing profile where i could set this limit.

Or you can set it through BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Tools->Computing preferences->CPU usage, as these preferences override any of the same preferences set by the web sites. That way it doesn't matter what any next new project makes of this preference, it'll be disabled on the computer using the local preferences.

Local preferences only work on the computer they were set on.

Note to Igor,

Yes "computing preferences" are missing 2 items.
I guess since we determined your server software is now a year old, that there have been some improvements you are missing.

In computing preferences (missing):
under processor useage:
Suspend work when non-BOINC CPU usage is above
0 means no restriction
Enforced by version 6.10.30+
Defualt is 25%

under nertwork preferences is
Transfer at most
Enforced by version 6.10.46+ --- Mbytes every --- days

I did check and test4theory has the new items. I checked some others, some do some don't. If annyone else has problems, try ageless' suggestion or find another project you are attached to and use that project as your master preferences as diederiks did.
