Has anyone else noticed this:
I suspened all of the other working projects on one of my single core non-HT CPU's so that I could get some new yoyo WU's and start crunching. After I saw that a yoyo WU had started I re-enabled the other projects except for climate prediction, as I knew that it would put itself as the primary cruncher due to its pending finish date. After many hours I noticed that the yoyo WU was still working and that none of the other projects had been given a chance.
Then I found out, thru this board, that the current state of WU's are very long. Since the yoyo WU had a much earlier finish date, 8-29-07, vs the Climate unit I re-enabled the climate WU. The process immediately went to the Climate WU. I noticed that the timer on the yoyo WU was still increasing. When I looked at the task manager I saw a 50-50 split in processing power between the Climate WU and the yoyo WU.
And this is a single core, non-HT CPU! I know that XTREMLAB WU's do that if you get one started and then re-enable any paused WU's from other projects.
I am curious if this WU will finish successfully or not.
I've had that on my dual core so that it appeared that I had 4 processes running! They seemed to share resources and running time but all 4 appeared to run at near half speed. They all finished okay though.
