Looks like there is no work waiting to be distributed and a build up on the results waiting validation.

Seems that these 2 need kicking to let crunchers continue.
Go away, I was asleep

It could be that the efforts being applied to the new application are diverting resources for now.

Travis indicated we'd likely have two 'phases' of 'work in progress' over the next few weeks. The first would be the new application, the second would be the shift over to some newere hardware. So I expect we will see a certain amount of tumult between now and the end of the month.

Looks like things are back running again. Travis simply has to realize that sleep, meetings and work are going to have to be put on hold for a while <smile>

Message 38420 - Posted: 8 Apr 2010, 20:34:23 UTC

I've got an Intel i7 based machine that has been getting only 4 CPU work units to crunch at a time (doing it on the CPU only). My safety stock is empty. Obviously the machine would like 8 or more units. I was running 6.10.18 but upgraded today to 6.10.43 as it is now the recommended version and I was hoping that it would solve the problem. Nope! I also detached/ reattached but that also didn't help. Yesterday I reset my preferences to 5 days of cache and updated the preferences. No help there either. My lap top has since received a nice cache but my main cruncher is at a loss for enough work. Any ideas?

Hi,

updating of the boinc client needs sometimes a readjustment of the settings. Check the setting of maximum cpu usage and things like that. Should be located in the extras tab.

I have a i7 based system and all 8 cores are busy.

Check these two settings under computing preferences:

On multiprocessors, use at most n processors
On multiprocessors, use at most
Enforced by version 6.1+ xxx % of the processors

Issues isn't the validator. The transitioner is locking up on me. Trying to figure out why.

Looks like it's a problem with the database :( Probably going to need to wait for labstaff to respond to fix this one.

Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.

Also look to the error rates on tasks returned...

{Edit}
I looked at one in your list and it looks like it was done with v0.21 ... I *THINK* that has been replaced by later versions ... you may also want to check that as well ... in fact I am not even sure why you are running anon platform ...
