Using my Science United account on BOINC and there is a process that occasionally eats all CPUs for a few seconds. It causes all other processes to stutter while it is occurring. The command line according to top is "amicable_aarch6". I'm guessing that is Amicable Numbers research.
So, how do I get it to play well with others, respect the CPU preferences (75% of CPUs (3/4), 75% of any CPU), or go away? It started doing this today and previously didn't seem to cause problems.
BOINC client version 7.14.2 for aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu
