To the Devs
Since it appears that reaching the maximum number of CPU or GPU units (and I suppose eventually AP units) triggers this message. Would it be possible for it to be annotated with the type of unit that's been maxxed out ?

e.g.
"reached daily quota of xxx CPU tasks" or "reached daily quota of xxx GPU tasks" etc.

It would help ease the confusion and give a better indication of the cruncher's performance. Just a thought.

An other suggestion.

It is better if SETI does not send any VLAR to GPU.
Now that we have separate applications (CPU, NVIDIA GPU) it should be possibile to send VLAR only to CPU.

Please, vote this suggestion! :-)

If it's easy to implement, I think it's a very good idea!
My CPU likes VLARS, my GPU doesn't...

From here the DQM looks like mere wishful thinking, As I have about 4 hours worth of work left and barring a small miracle, I'll be out before morning comes around.

From my quad which is setup to do MB on CUDA GPU and AP, only, on the CPU, the max quota limit has also been applied to my CPU (AP tasks) downloads.

If bugs are not squashed today it will be switched off about 3:00 BST tomorrow morning at the latest.

Maybe switched back on when there is enough evidence to say it works correctly.

You would be holding your breath like the kitties.......

I am tempted to shut all down too......but I have always been the stalwart Seti supporter. I suppose I can let the rigs idle a few more days and wait until Eric can bang his fist on somebody's desk hard and long enough to enact a correction.

I do hope he doesn't go postal.........

DQM is at 244 and still no work for the anonymous platform, Only for the stock app.

There's a (different) daily quota for each platform.

I think the "anonymous" platform is old units, sent out before SETI distingushed between CPU and GPU platforms. I don't expect to ever see more of those, all we will get will be CPU or GPU platforms. "Anonymous" should shrivel up and die over the next few days or weeks.

So in other words, It's go to the stock app as the app I have is unwelcome? I see no reason to upgrade as My SSSE3x app works fine and I should not be told to go away or have My concerns ignored.

No, Bill Walker was speaking about the anonymous tasks without CPU or Nvidia GPU appended in the list.

Ja, das ist korrekt Herr Jahn.

Victor, I was talking about the "anonymous platform, Unknown" that show up on the new "applications details" page. Sorry, my post was a little confusing. What platforms do you see on your Applications details, and what are the various quota?. Right now I have a quota of 8 for anonymous platform, Unknown and 108 for anonymous platform, CPU. But I still only get about one WU every 2 or 3 hours, and haven't had more than 2 WUs on my machine at the same day for several days.

EDIT - I think "Anonymous" in all this means an optimized ap, since that is what I'm running. Do folks with stock aps see something different on the new page?

"applications details" page? I've looked in My account and I see no "applications details" page at all. Unless You mean Tasks and as to what It says there for My cpu, It says "Anonymous platform - CPU".

Since I have only one app, One of these is lying and I think It's the bottom one.

SETI@home Enhanced (anonymous platform, Unknown) Number of tasks completed 34 Max tasks per day 34 Number of tasks today 0 Consecutive valid tasks 34 Average turnaround time 3.98 days SETI@home Enhanced (anonymous platform, CPU) Number of tasks completed 144 Max tasks per day 244 Number of tasks today 254 Consecutive valid tasks 144 Average turnaround time 1.03 days

Here's a picture for You all, The Quota is fiction and works terrible.

And that's al I have, If the server says I have some cpu work, Then It's a fat lie.
