Greetings,

Any chance that the wu limitation per day can be increased anytime soon? What about it projects admins, are you ready to scale your project up yet? ???

I think what he is asking is to be able to download more at a time. Since last night many of us had systems sitting and spinning at nothing because a wu "hung" and prevented more downloads. With either expanded wu size or larger caches allowed there would be more of a buffer during a problem. There are a few people like Mitch that have fairly massive pharms that can chew up wu's like candy. For an investment like that to sit idol is a problem that runs them away from projects.

The project won't do more than 20 at a time due to evolving wu's. If they did not, convergence would take longer and we would be crunching outdated stuff......I would also say the d/l problem is a welcome to alpha cause what can go wrong will go wrong....those that have remote machines run the associated dangers of making this their only project.

....those that have remote machines run the associated dangers of making this their only project.

Test and beta projects are not generally very suitable for machines that aren’t easily accessible, because they tend to require closer monitoring, and more frequent user intervention, than production projects do. Not that this should be a surprise to anybody …
