1) Message boards : Seventeen or Bust : Spliting SoB WUs in smaller pieces? (Message 80632)

OK, thank you both for the answers.

I thought that it is 'only' necesarry to change the behavior from the application.
But it looks like there is a lot more to do. thx.

I get your points,

my idea came from the fact that the SoB-Client (and mprime) are able to pause and resume the work on a candidate so I thought it would be 'easy' to stop the job after a certain amount of iterations and send the needed informations back to the server which can resend these informations as a new WU (I have absolutely no idea about the amount of work this would cause).
For those who want the chance to find a prime there could be the WU-switch I mentioned.

Hi,

Is there a posibility to split the SoB WUs in smaller pieces/WUs?

Imho this would have some advantages:
- people which crunch only some hours per day/per week can contribute to SoB
- if a small WU is lost (error/hardware crash ...) the 'wasted' time is lower compared to a full WU

Maybe it is possible to use some checkboxes in the projectselection like:
Send full WU = Yes/No
Send small WU =Yes/No
