folding@home linux question (or other console versions)
    #2365159 - 02/21/04 08:58 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I've noticed that folding@home isn't too friendly about observing process priorities. It keeps running when I'm trying to play videos and such, giving me a performance hit. I have it set to "idle" in the config. I've run other distributed computing programs in the past, but haven't had this problem. Is there a way to get it to truly only run at idle, or throttle it to leave some cpu time alone when it is running?

Also, how the hell do you quit this thing without losing your workunit?

You laugh at me because I'm different.
