I've raised the work limit to 20 tasks per GPU to see what happens.

Dont know if it is now because GPU Limits raised to 20 per GPU, but Server Status Page shows only 4 Tasks to send, and cache goes to status empty soon on my MW Machine.

Hmm seems to be a (maybe temporary) work generation speed problem. Cache on my old 3850 holds now between 7 and 10 Workunits, the download times look like the server runs always out of work and getting WUs blockwise, but running "normaly". Cant look @ BOINC manager from where i am.

I would second the notion that there may be a work generation problem. I left my machine crunching last night and it seems like at one point the server gave up sending work units. My machine finished all the tasks in the queue and the server repeatedly sent the message "no work available". Eventually my machine "stopped" requesting work from the server and was without anything to do for a few hours until I hit update for the project myself, when the server gave me another 20 WUs.

Yes, I'm seeing that problem too.

No slight intended, RyeBreadMan101! :) I was just smarting after seeing someone in my MWAH startup date (who has spent the past three months in the credit cellar) suddenly rack up over 240,000 points and jump into the top ten of our group in a two-day period with a string of over 400 consecutive ATI WUs...>schniffles<...>honk<...'scuse me, I need a minute...

Part of the problem is all the new hosts coming to the Project now that it has fairly consistent work, it is a symptom of being successful!

Did it get bumped up again as I currently have 70 WU on my AMD machine.

It appears so since I have 35 instead of 20.
