I just looked and it appears there are "14,126,882 units" left.  I was running some on a Windows Ryzen box and they were taking about 12 hours per task.  Presumably, be faster on Linux.

It might be worth it to see if there is a fairly easy way to multi-thread this CPU application after you get the new GPU  application(s) up into the beta test.

Especially if you are still collecting data for that task.

i dont think it would improve

i dont think it would improve task throughput to run 1x task on 16 cores, or 16x tasks on 1 core.

Good point.  It seems to me the only way that multi-threading could speed up throughput would be if the threads have "overlapping" processes.  Since I don't know the algorithm I don't even pretend to have an idea of an answer.
