Hi
I've decided to give Rosetta a go again. But am reluctant to do so with amount of memory VM tasks take.

My PC has a 5950X CPU (16c/32t) and 128GB of RAM. IF I don't select a CPU runtime value in my options, Rosetta defaults to 8hrs.

I then get a heap of VM tasks, and with 32 threads running, it soon eats up all my RAM and even some swap space on my drive.

Is there a way to adjust how many threads are running for each VM task? So if I could select 2 threads per VM, I'd have 16 concurrent tasks, which I believe would take up less RAM.

Currently I've selected a CPU runtime of 2hrs, and am just getting Rosetta BETA tasks, which is ok for now. I would like to crunch some VM tasks without using RAM over my physical limit and swap space.

You can limit the amount of VM tasks using app_config.xml and run other tasks on the other cores, something like:

<app_config>
 <app>
  <name>Application_Name</name>
  <max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
 </app>
</app_config>

Application_Name you will find in your client_state.xml.

Unless I am mistaken, but all are single core tasks only.
