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

Greetings,

Well I have 3 systems running at the moment, all using the default location in preferences with target cpu set to 2hrs

Ryzen 5700x (#1) 8c/16t - only using 8c, cpu times are averaging 3hrs (Win11)

Ryzen 5700x (#2) 8c/16t - only using 8c, cpu times are averaging 2hrs (Win11)

Dual Xeon E5-2470v2 (20c/40t) - only using 8c, cpu times are averaging 2hrs (Linux Mint 21.3) also LHC using some cores as well.

I have set work fetch preferences to 0.1 days & 0.1 days, which keeps a small amount of workunits in cache on each machine, its how I like it.

But as Grant has already mentioned, the validators are still offline, as pendings are growing.

I also fine tuned the core usage on these machines, as I have app_config files in each project, cause sometimes I am running various other projects at sometimes, again my preference only.

When pushing hard on some projects and I start using the hyperthreads, I still as a rule, leave 2 threads in reserve for each cpu, for the OS and GPU to use, again my preference only.

Hope you have a good day :-)
