I have a machine that, up until very recently, was crunching away on 2 GPUs and 12 processors. However, for the past few day the machine is doing nothing but GPU WUs. When I watch the event log it says:

Requesting new tasks for CPU and NVIDIA
Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
No tasks sent
No tasks are available for Astropulse v505
No tasks are available for SETI@home v7
No tasks are available for AstroPulse v6


However, it does download Nvidia WUs (I have a huge pool of WUs to work on that are CUDA only, it doesn't download these all the time).

Machine info:

Linux Mint 13
BOINC v7.0.33
Arkayn - AK_V8_linux64_ssse3
Lunatics - setiathome_x41g_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu_cuda32
Arkayn - ap_6.01r546_avx_linux64



Anyone have any ideas?

What are your cache settings? (Both of them)

Boinc will fill the fastest device first, if you have too large a cache setting, you'll never get CPU Wu's,

Astropulse v505 is dead, you can uncheck it if you want.

No tasks are available for SETI@home v7

SETI@home v7 has not been released yet. See above.

No tasks are available for AstroPulse v6


There are no Astropulse v6 work units available until new tapes are split.
However, it does download Nvidia WUs (I have a huge pool of WUs to work on that are CUDA only, it doesn't download these all the time).

Cuda units are not always available "all the time".

Machine info:

Linux Mint 13
BOINC v7.0.33
Arkayn - AK_V8_linux64_ssse3
Lunatics - setiathome_x41g_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu_cuda32

You could try cpu SETI@home Enhanced work units.

He does have the app for Enhanced work already.

By the way, the AP app is also Lunatics, made by Urs and mirrored on my site, along with making the packages.

The MB app is Crunch3rs.

Interesting, I have my cache settings super high.
Minimum work buffer: 4 days
Max additional work buffer: 5 days
Use at most: 50GB of disk space

Never had problems before, always had a full pool of regular CPU WUs and a nice hefty list of CUDA WUs.

I'll try setting this down to 1 day of work and see what happens. I'll trial and error my way through this.

Thanks!

The "shorty" storm we had yesterday probably didn't help, either.

You're running Boinc 7, Boinc 7 has a new scheduler, it'll fill up to the Min+Max setting then wait for the cache to drop down to the Min setting before asking for work again,
so try 4 + 0.01, this will cache 4 days, and ask for work every time it gets down below 4 days work, See the Boinc 7 FAQ, In finer detail (at the bottom)

I got a few cpu tasks today. I think it might have been availability issue.

Hi,

I have 2 gtx580 and 2 xeon 5680 and since 24hours I don't receive task for my cpu.
I use boinc 7.0.28 on windows seven 64.
In network setting I have 1.0 and 0.1, I received new task for gpu when A gpu finish a task,but not for cpu.
if I put 2.0 and 0.1 I received a lot of gpu task, but not for cpu.
I tried with 0.5 and 0.1 and that stop gpu's task download.

I don't know what can I do, wait??
