2 of my computers got some tasks, but the rest of my computers are still saying project has no tasks available.

RTS is at 1,418,050 tasks, so it came down a little bit.

What business is it of yours?!? Why don't you leave the guy alone and quit pestering him about how he lives his life. It is absolutely NONE of you business! Leave him be.

If he posts how he lives his life to an open forum for all to see, he invites both positive and negative comments / questions.

Seti is coming alive again. One of my machines was able to get 113 tasks. Another machine wasn't able to get any. Hopefully the defrag of the dbase will help in the days to come.

Most services are showing disabled. Somebody at Seti doing some work on the systems today?

it seems that the "no task available " horror show is back ...

forum is a little bit laggy too ;)


I'm at work so I can't check my system logs, but I noticed an hour or so ago, the statuses for multiple services on the server status page were an hour old. Right now, we have over 700k tasks ready to send, and all splitters are offline. I would suspect with the splitters offline, the backend system will catch up a bit. At least until the pendulum starts to swing the other way again.

Another option to power your Raspberry Pi. I have had one for about 10 months, powering 3 Raspberry Pi's and a USB fan.

some stats on server status page haven't updated in 44 minutes, and I can't get tasks for one of my PCs.

I wonder if they set the RTS cache to 100k to see if less stress in the files system would help the server performance.
It sure seems that way to my eye.


I was kinda wondering the same thing. Usually by this time the day after the weekly maint, the RTS cache is back to normal of around 500k.

. . Yes but not what he was talking about, he was referring to the 200 tasks per download limit ...

Ah, that limit. :-)

Hope that means the floodgates are beginning to open. The RTS was over 800K when I looked 10 minutes ago. Now see it at 750K so looks like tasks are going out finally. I have received exactly one task also.


Flood gates must have opened before I got online. RTS is at 139,779. But the creation rate is only at 12 a second. Hopefully that will pick up some speed.

FYI: Both of my crunchers had some backed-up downloads (about 10 each). I finally cleared them, and on the next request, one got 184 tasks, and the other, 237, which are merrily downloading even as I type.

Apparently, there is no longer a 200 limit on the number of WUs available for download. When was this changed on the servers?



Both of your machines have the max of 300 tasks - 100 tasks for CPU, and 100 tasks for each GPU

One of my windows machines was able to grab 40 or so tasks about 15 minutes ago. Ready to send is just over 600 tasks so it looks like things are slowly getting back to normal.

I think my issue this morning is with BOINC on the 1 PC that should have the max allowed number of tasks. It is normally at 300 tasks on it, but it's down to 171 tasks.

The event log shows that it's not requesting tasks - 'don't need' is what it's showing for that Ubuntu PC. It doesn't show the cache is full on it like it would on my Windows PCs would. But these days I only have that 1 Ubuntu PC set to max allowed number of tasks by way of 10 day work load, so I don't have any PCs to compare to this morning.


EDIT: found my issue - resource share issue with my projects. It's now back to 300 tasks.

I checked the site from work today, everything was still up and running. Just got home, everything is still up and running. I had to scroll thru the posts to see a dbase was tweaked a couple weeks back. Have to say I like the short and sweet outages. :-)

I set 2 machines to not grab any new tasks while the server issues are going on. They finished all work so I shut them off. Check the web and 1 of them still has 1 more task to complete. Looks like that has been reported on this thread already.

Funny thing is, 1 of my other machines has 201 tasks when the hard limit is 200 for it. I wish I could figure out how to get past that hard limit since it runs out of CPU tasks every Tuesday :-)

Eric mentioned he may have to rebuild an index that is used for task requests, if the reboots didn't work. My cache is down 50% so I'm guessing he will have to rebuild the index. That will mean downtime for our machines - so get those backup projects ready or save a little electricity :-)

Over a million work units ready to send, so when everything is said and done, we should be able to fill our caches quickly enough.


Next 20
