BOINC Running on servers.

Hi,
 My boss at work insists on running BOINC on all our 6 servers and some of the desktops too. I am not familiar with the program that much, but I have noticed that eventhough the priority is set to low some times when the server is running slow I login and BOINC is taking %100 of the CPU.
 I am just wondering isn't running BOINC on a server a NO NO both in terms of security and resources?

yes, any application that is giving out information is bad news. I would strongly discourage any application that give information out and uses resources if you don't need it.

If the server is mission critical I would strongly advise not to run CPU pegging application. Users are more important and performance can slowly degrade and you might find yourself starving with resources and users complaining about snow network responsiveness.
