Try rerunning your benchmarks.

Also if you have been turning off BOINC and/or your computer it may not think you will have your computer on enough to need any more work than that. If this is the case it will eventually straighten itself out (about a month).

I have a sumular q.
I crack a wu in around a little more than 3 hour's, but when WU's get's under watermark the program load's wu and think it will take around 27 hours to crack
so instead of collecting around 30 wu's it only collects 4.
Benchmarks is being runned at startup time.

This is a different problem. There is a misadjustment at Berkeley's end.

Another possibility is that you machine has spent some time off, or with BOINC not running, and BOINC uses this information as part of the calculation for how much work to request. This is done because not all machines run 24/7, and a weeks worth for a computer that runs 8/5 is much different than that for a machine that runs 24/7. Since this is based on an exponential reducing average (Berkeley loves these), this should fix itself eventually if you leave everything running even when S@H has no WU.
