For some reason every WU I get form Rosetta is running High Priority and thus will not share with the other projects I run like it\'s supposed to, anyone have an idea why it might be doing this?

I\'m running BOINC 6.10.60 x64 on Windows 7 x64, 6 GB DDR3 and a Quadcore i7 920.

This is just the BOINC Manager showing you that without some help, it is predicting that these tasks would miss their deadlines. It is just an estimate and is based on many factors (including a prediction for how many hours per day your machine will likely be running BOINC). Once the tasks are completed the scheduler will make up the time to the other projects so as to maintain your desired resource shares.

This can happen to any project. It is your BOINC Manager that made the decision to run them first, not any settings with the project. It is pretty common if you\'ve recently changed your resource shares, or added or removed projects. Also pretty common with a project that you give a low resource share to, because without help, the number of CPU hours that project would otherwise be given may not always been enough to finish a work unit before the deadline.

I always say that you should expect your resource shares to balance over a period of 100 hours, not 100 minutes. In this case, the tasks you are running now will have completed by then and your BOINC scheduler will not request further work from Rosetta unless there is no work from your other projects, or it reaches a point where it needs more Rosetta work to maintain your resource share.

That does seem to be it, I set Rosetta pretty low, as I mainly want it to run as a backup when another project is out of work. Since Rosetta\'s server software seems to be too old to support the 0 setting, I set it very low, seems I set it too low. I kicked it up a little higher and it seems to have calmed down. Thanks for the help, appreciate it.
