Not sure if I'm understanding the changelog correctly, but having the virtual appliance Next Unit Percentage value default to 90% when the F@h client defaults to 99% will have a negative impact on the bonus points calculation since the timer for the Work Unit will start as soon as it's downloaded, not when it starts processing.

Hello, you are correct that it is something that you would want to tune based on your environment to achieve maximum bonus points. This is the value we use internally and have seen great success with keeping our systems folding.

You are welcome to set it to any number you wish or remove the entry from the config file completely.

Could I get clarification on the changelog on what "Workload Unit Percentage" means?

Are there any plans to ship a K8S version of this? A Docker Compose variant would work too.

For those running macOS, this may be a simpler way of contributing:

brew cask install folding-at-home
open /Applications/Folding@home/FAHControl.app
