Only getting GPU work units for some reason. Options are set correctly. Anyone seeing this too?

You probably know this, but that deferral can be reset by going NNT/Manual update/allow new tasks. Also resets the work fetch deferrals that you see on project properties if they have escalated due to unsuccessful fetches.

Well, you appear not to be asking for CPU work. So, you shall get none. CPU fetch share 0.000.......
While the Nvidia shortfall is 1210351.79....
So that work request still appears to be seeking GPU work.
Did you disable GPU in your Seti@home preferences and update?


Well I cant now find the setting. I can only find diable GPU while computer is in use.

Sorry for the finnish. Boinc somehow puts the options in Finnish although I would actually prefer English.

Suorittimen käyttö
Hyllytä työ koneen ollessa akkukäytöllä?
(koskee vain kannettavia) kyllä
Hyllytä työ tietokoneen ollessa käytössä? ei
Hyllytä näytönohjaimen (GPU) työ tietokoneen ollessa käytössä?
versiosta 6.6.21+ ei
"Käytössä" tarkoittaa hiiren/näppäimistön käyttöä 3 minuuttia
Hyllytä työ jos hiirtä/näppäimistöä ei ole käytetty
(tarvitaan joissakin koneissa mentäessä virransäästötilaan) --- minuuttia
Suspend work when non-BOINC CPU usage is above
0 means no restriction
Enforced by version 6.10.30+ 25%

Website project preferences, in English "use Nvidia GPU" (or ATI). That doesn't block crunching what you have, just tells BOINC on the next update to stop asking for gpu work.

Yep. This was what I was looking for.

Seti scheduler times out when it has problem with confirming the 700 + tasks..

Lets see how the update goes this time.

Go NNT to work down the unreported tasks. You don't have to wait the 5 minutes when on NNT. The option Kittyman mentioned is

<max_tasks_reported>50</max_tasks_reported>

din the options section of cc_config.xml. You may want to try 100 instead of 50. Max accepted is now 256 per a recent post. The less you try, the better the probability - but you have a lot more than I have to deal with.

Ok. Changed the max reported results to 100.
I recall Richard H. mentioned that newer Boinc versions had some kind of automatic fix not to send too many results, go figure.
