Hi,

I've got my laptop running 24x7 for Rosetta with lower CPU during the night because of fan noise. I find that I keep getting more jobs in the queue and some jobs will time out because other jobs fail (they run for like 2 days with only minutes CPU time so I have to abort them manually).
Is it normal for Rosetta to put 28 jobs in the queue while there are 4 jobs running concurrently?

The CPU can handle more, it's an 8 core - 16 thread Ryzen 4800H but my memory is the limiting factor.

The server will send work depending on the settings you have for days of work
Try reducing the amount of "days" of work in boinc manager`s options tab to 0.5 + 0.1 [or less] days and that should reduce the que a lot .

I checked that setting, it was already set to 0.5 / 0.1. I've reduced it to 0.1 / 0.05.

Do you have max_concurrent or project_max_concurrent is your app_config.xml?

That can sometimes cause excess WUs to be downloaded.

Checked the projects directory, there is no app_config.xml. Also did a search of the hdd, it can't find one either.
