In looking at the server status page, I cannot tell how many cuda work units are available to be downloaded. Neither can I spot any info about CUDA tasks.

If there is no work available at all, should not there be something like

WU's ready to be download (SETI / SETI-CUDA): 0 / 0

and something similar for astro pulse?

I do see the row item "Results ready to send" and 0 for both seti and astro. I assume Results are what is to be downloaded by users and Workunit to be stuff that is uploaded when the user finished processing the Result. From a user point of view, that seems backwards does it not?

I have 3 systems running seti cuda, all 6.6.36, and the status messages seem inconsistent. Note that only the last system goes on to request work from the GPU. The other two systems seemingly only ask for CPU work and I did not find any further reference to getting GPU work further down in the message log. i.e.: I did not selectively cut and paste.

There are no different tasks for GPU and CPU processing on the server. It's the same data files for both.

If there is no work available at all, should not there be something like

WU's ready to be download (SETI / SETI-CUDA): 0 / 0

and something similar for astro pulse?

AstroPulse is also SETI! The correct notation is MultiBeam / AstroPulse. ;-)

I do see the row item "Results ready to send" and 0 for both seti and astro. I assume Results are what is to be downloaded by users and Workunit to be stuff that is uploaded when the user finished processing the Result. From a user point of view, that seems backwards does it not?

I think, a workunit (on the server) consists of the several results (copies) sent to different wingmates.

The original terminology is that Work Units were split from the tape, and results were copied from the WU and sent to clients. More recently this was changed so that WUs were split into tasks that were sent to the clients. This is obviously one place where the terminology change was missed.
