I tested it out and it doesn't work as expected. Either the webpage is the wrong one or it never loads up.

I can use the screenshot function then OCR the picture to see what the console output but this is sub-optimal I would say.

There is some files in:

Did anyone work out a way to read the VM console output from the host operating system?

I looked thouhg the files in the slots directory but there isn't anything there.

I do all tasks with 1 CPU but atlas uses a lot of RAM due issue with how it works on windows.

So with 32 GB of ram you can only run 3 WUs, as CP said you are probably better off to run a few more CPU / WU

1. I aborted all the task and it came back, maybe as you say after reboot, so they would be restored from saved state.

I didn't have any problems for a long time with 6.1, some issues I imagine with the 7.0 branch as it's new.

The boinc team did a code check in 2 months ago with a wrapper so maybe in latest version it works?

All my computers started to use more cores.

I have the websettings of Max # CPUs No limit, so it could be that only in combo with this it went strange.

I don't think it would be a BOINC thing, it's the wrapper?

FYI, you might need to check your app_config.

<avg_ncpus>1.0</avg_ncpus>

is no longer passed to the VM

You need

<cmdline>--nthreads 1</cmdline>

I believe that the backend services make WU on demand so a low amount in the queue is conceptually fine

Its more a question to the BOINC developers, there is not really infrastructure in BOINC to work with another VM solution.

The point of the VM solutions were to make it easier for the scientists, not having to port the code to different architectures. Since Apple hasn't finished Rosetta for VMs to emulate x86 on Arm then it would be significant work for the scientist to port.

Thomas, yours seems to be OK, the Vbox version is quite old. I assume maybe you didn't want an 8 core WU, so you can lower this in the settings.
