No more Arecibo tasks to split/splat/splut.
I wonder if it is for good, or just temporary?
Well, 04ap08ab is splitting now - not new, but work.

3 more have been added, so '08 ain't done just yet.

Message 1882380 - Posted: 6 Aug 2017, 6:28:01 UTC

Anyone having problems getting work over the last hour or so?
Lots of "Project has no tasks available" messages, and Work in progress shows a significant drop over the last hour or so.

My log shows 3 such messages, but atm my Work in progress is maxed out at 200. Probably the first time I've seen that. And my Validation pending is also at an all time high.

All machines have full caches although the Boinc manager event log shows

No tasks are available for Astropulse V7
No tasks are available for Seti@home V8
Project has no tasks available

Ok, Einstein here I come for a while :-)

If i'd notice it earlier, I could have posted about it earlier.
And naturally now that I've posted about it, the work starts flowing again. We'll see how long it lasts.

I'm down to about 50 gpu tasks when I should be at 300. Keep getting the project has no work available. I have changed my preferences multiple times now. This is on the special app machine so it crunches through them especially fast. Anybody else having issues getting gpu work?

Just had a look at my logs, been several hours now & it's been difficult to get any work. Taking 5-15 request to get some. Once again little to no GBT tasks coming through (when they eventually do).
I really wish they'd fix the Scheduler.


Trying my luck with application flipping.

Thanks for the feedback Grant. Nice to know I'm not the only one having issues. Yes, I too really would like them to fix the schedulers.

My hosts have full queues and I have a total of 3 "project has no work" messages across them.
I don't seem to be one of the users that has bad luck if hitting an empty feeder queue often.

I have one machine that keeps dropping down. I've been having success by just hitting the Update button about three times in rapid fire mode. Hit it, when the request starts hit it again and as soon as it says completed, hit it again. The next normal request usually nets dozens of tasks. I'm about to hit it again, it's down to 180, should be around 230, https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=6906726&offset=140
Let's see if it works again.

I was about to hit it, and it just sent 2 tasks. That's the way it usually goes. Down by 50, the machine requests 50, the server sends 2. Why the Server decides not to sent what the machine requests is a mystery.

Hi TBar, that's a technique I haven't heard about before. I will give that method a try next request. I have only done the Preferences toggle so far which eventually works after an hour or so.

Don't know if it was the flipping Application settings, or just posting about here again, but now i'm getting some work.
Now it's every 5-10 requests, so the cache is still down, just not as much as it was.
GBT WUs are still scarce, and there's barely any Arecibo VLARs, so it's all down to the Scheduler weirdness issue that started back in Dec of last year.

I don't know whether it was the flipping applications or a complete restart of BOINC, but I am slowly refilling my gpu cache. What I always wonder is how everyone else but me gets such a huge slug of tasks in one download. I have never received more than 20 tasks at one time on any machine of mine even though I might have zero tasks in my cache. Your 70 tasks in that request TBar just astonishes me.

On bulk downloads I generally get 50-52.

Is there a BOINC setting that I have somehow missed configuring to get larger downloads?

Not that i'm aware of, otherwise i'd go for the largest amount possible for those times when recovering from an outage.
