Message 27542 - Posted: 12 Jul 2009, 0:22:27 UTC

Hi guys,

I hope you can help me.
From time to time I only get the message "Not reporting or requesting tasks" but I'm out of work -.-
Yesterday I only have to restart the Boinc client to fix it but today I am since 3 hours out of work.

Could be that MW has built up a debt and BOINC is trying to let the other projects have their turn to run.
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.

Are some of my settings wrong? How should I configure Boinc to have enough work?
At the moment I have "Connectet every 0 days" and "more work for 5 days" but I only get 24 WUs at once .... if Boinc sends a request.
Then I crunch them and upload them and ... nothig happen )= no more work

It's probably the five day cache you have set. MW has three day deadlines and a 6 WU per core limit, try setting your cache to less than three.

It's the 'connect' that needs set under 3. Mine is set 'connect' to .5 days and work buffer to 6.5 days. I don't have any problems getting work when I want some.

But from my other Projects I get no work
*lhc@home resscource: 100
*orbit@home resscource: 100
*milkyway_GPU@home resscource: 100
and milkyway@home: resscource: 750

Well for starters MW_GPU isn't running yet. Orbit says it has 0 jobs. LHC has 0 jobs.
So your only problem is not getting work from MW.

It's very strange ... now I've deleted the whole milkyway-project folder and tada I got 24 new tasks.

I hope MW sends me now the WUs frequently ;)

If the problem occured again I will post it


Thx to all

Message 27729 - Posted: 14 Jul 2009, 6:16:19 UTC - in response to Message 27591.  

Hi!

Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks

I crunch MilkyWay only on CPU.... and it does not download new WU until all of 24 previous dowloaded finished.....

So after crunch last WU CPU is idle waiting for download new WU.

The worst thing is that sometimes i don't have internet for few hours... so IDLE for long time....

BOINC 6.6.28

Now I have the older Boinc-client 6.4.7 and this one requests alway work.
Maybe that can fix your problem, too. I hope it will.

I think it has to do with your connect preference and additional work buffer settings. Reduce it so the total is less than 24 hours and you should then see a change in the way BOINC behaves.

At a guess, the problem is the BOINC client version -- various iterations of the 6.x BOINC client do quite illogical things regarding work and reporting. What operating system are you running.

Of the 6.x clients, I've found the 6.4.5 version to be the least troublesome.

If you are not running Vista or Win7, you might consider getting the earlier (and much less problematic) BOINC 5.4.5 client. You can get that (and any other BOINC client version) from:

Actually, it's likely the cache setting. My system performs exactly the same way, and I'm using the old BOINC 5.8.16. Actually, the typical process for me is:

Last task completes...then uploads. Scheduler request goes out and 5 tasks are downloaded. Uploaded result from before reports, and 1 additional task downloads, giving me the 6/core. Next work request isn't until the last task from that batch completes. Rinse, repeat, ad infinitum...

It could be -- though I've not seen this with 5.4.5 (and never played with later 5.x iterations). Then again, I have set my Network Usage (and cache) to high levels. I've set things to let MilkyWay (and where I'm running a Cuda GPU) GridGPU 'open', with other projects for no new tasks, in conjunction with a high (8 day plus) cache setting. When I want to load balance and get more work on projects like Spinhenge, POEM, Rosetta, Einstein, etc.) I temporarily set them to get new work, which they get readily, and then set them back.
