I am running SETI@Home & World Grid on the same rig.

I adjusted resource share between the above two projects to Seti=75% and World Grid=25%.

This does not appear to work, because no matter what resource share percentage I set, World Grid tasks ALWAYS took precedence over Seti tasks (both CPU & GPU). The result was my CPU and GPU running ONLY World Grid Tasks with SETI tasks remaining perma idle on the background.

I originally had wanted my CPU and GPU to run one World Grid WU for every three SETI WU's run, so I figured the way to that would be to adjust the resource share option to SETI 75% and World Grid 25% but this didn't seem to work.

Anybody knows how I will be able to run one World Grid task for every three SETI tasks run? THanks in advance.

The share is a long term average, not an instantaneous one.
Prime Grid has quite short deadlines, so initially it will "hog" the processing, but eventually SETI@Home will reach the desired average figure.

BOINC will eventually stop requesting work for PG unless SETI has no work.

I've had Cosmology, Einstien, and Seti for quite some time and "eventually" never happened. Cosmology hogged it all 24/7/365. I have since removed Cosmology. Since a "user" is giving time on his/her computer as a volunteer he/she should have more options to control its use like changing a projects time to what we want to.
