I've asked for tasks 3 times in the past hour or so. Nothing shows up on the client. For two of the three requests, the Event Log came back with "job cache full". Have never seen this before. Suggestions?

It means what it says :-) -- your client reckons it has enough work already downloaded to keep your system occupied for the amount of time configured for your "Store at least N days of work" setting...

As your computers are not visible on this site I've no idea which MilkyWay applications you might be running, or how much work you already have pending. However, I note that you are also active at Einstein@home, where the estimates of how long tasks might take can be every bit as erratic as the N-Body estimates are here -- could it be that Einstein work is filling the cache first (the delay beween server contacts is shorter at Einstein!)?

Whatever the cause, it is probably better to be told your cache is full than it is to have so much work that a lot of it might not meet the deadlines if the estimated run times are out, so I wouldn't worry about it too much :-)

Cheers - Al.

P.S. I'm just another user...
