Is the maximium number of theory tasks 10?

Can I increase the limit on my many core machines?

What do you have set in Boinc computing preferences in the Other category?
Store at least
Store up to an additional

How many cores?

I have 0.5 and 0.01, so I should get 1 for each core.

I have 20 cores and 40 threads.

We had set the limit to 10 in the past to prevent badly configured hosts from draining the queue. The limit has now been removed.

I can confim the limit is now lifted, my 40 thread machine has 40 in progress.

Hi, possible to set limit much higher? What at my 88 cores worksation? Today CPUs have more than 40 threads, 50 is too low for next class CPUs. Possible to set it to 100 or more for dual CPU workstations?

I just run more than one instance of BOINC to get around the limits. I guess the best option would be 1WU/core.
