What we seem to have currently is 4t tasks which automatically use 4 or more threads, 8t uses 8 or more, etc. But if you have say a 24 core machine, you do not get given 32,64,128t tasks, but they will work and get by with any number of threads. You can force them to in app_config. So why is the server not handing them out? It looks from your server status you are not getting many of the big ones done. Why not let them get handed out to people with under 128 cores?

I can only assume you want the big ones done on faster machines, but perhaps you could make it hand them out in preference. So a 16 core machine will get 16t tasks, unless they run out, then it gets 32t tasks.

But it only gives you a 32t task if you have a 32 thread or more CPU. you have to trick Boinc into thinking you have 32 threads to get those tasks. Then other things get messy.
