I'm crunching gpu wu's only.
I've set my computers to store wu's for 5 days and an additional buffer also of 5 days.
Hours later I had wu's for about one hour.
I want a buffer for 4 to 5 hours to keep my gpu's active during the many short database outages.
Any ideas beside crunching other projects?

Hey Alexander,

The max number of work units you can download is set by the server. Keeping a buffer of 5 hours would not be possible right now on a GPU given how quickly the work units are running. I am working on a solution to this but it won't be ready for a couple weeks most likely. In the meantime, I am working on improving server stability to mitigate the effect of the short database outages.
