    ATLAS@Home: Moving multicore out of beta on Mon 29th August

    We intend to move the multicore app out of beta on Monday the 29th August. This means that by default everyone will get both singlecore and multicore WU.

    The main motivations for this are that multicore provides better CPU and memory efficiency, and we only have to manage a single stream of tasks instead of two.

    If you do not want to run multicore you can disable it in your ATLAS@Home preferences in the option "Run only the selected applications"

    By default the tasks will use as many cores as you have allocated to BOINC. For tuning the number of cores that the tasks will use you can create an app_config.xml file as described in this thread

    At some point we plan to discontinue the singlecore app and run only multicore. The multicore app will also run on 1 core so you can still continue with ATLAS even with a single core.

    Happy crunching!
    The ATLAS@Home team

    That's the shot over the bow for all you hours folks. Only a limited amount of time left to get your WuProp stars upgraded on the singlecore app...
