I restrict the number of vbox instances by creating an app_config.xml file in the project data folder.
Located at C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.cosmologyathome.org\ on my Windows client.

The contents of the file:
<app_config>
    <app>
        <name>camb_boinc2docker</name>
        <max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
    </app>
    <app_version>
        <app_name>camb_boinc2docker</app_name>
        <plan_class>vbox64_mt</plan_class>
        <avg_ncpus>3</avg_ncpus>
    </app_version>
</app_config>


  • Only the application named camb_boinc2docker is restricted by this app_config.xml file, the camb_legasy application will continue to operate according to the normal BOINC computing preferences.
  • I have also restricted the number of concurrent CPU instances used by the camb_boinc2docker application (<avg_ncpus>3</avg_ncpus>). This reduces the performance impact of the application when BOINC tasks are allowed to run "Always", i chose to allocate half the number of CPUs that are available to BOINC.
  • Optimal settings will vary depending on the specification and usage of your computer system.


I dropped my CPUs down to "4", and that finally fixed it for me. It kind of sucks to have a 3900X and have to restrict the CPUs to "4" though. Thanks!
