Hi,
This is a well-known problem. I solved it by installing BIONC 7.15.0.
Have a look on my thread https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/forum_thread.php?id=4631

This is not a official Bionc version u can download it on GITHUB only.
This version always downloads enough work units, it works for WINDOWS an Linux Unbuntu

....some additions with pictures

normally i have to wait for new tasks after all the work is done before milkyway will dowlnoad new task. Sometimes the downloading process starts immediately, most of the time nothing happens and the download process has to be started manually.When using two graphics cards at the same time, milkyway downloads 600 work units.

As you can see on the picture, work units are now permanently downloaded. Always between 8-14 work units per request. This means that there is always enough work.

Start screen BOINC TASK 1.78 (This software you can download from the BIONC add tools site)

Here is another picture to prove that everything is going well. As you can see, different versions of BOINC run in multiple instances on the same computer

https://drive.google.com/file/d/11l6-NRAzts_0rn9eqF-0fPXrj6Gq0BY8/view?usp=sharing

If you haven't strapped it up to now everything runs on Windows 10 pro.

I hope that the article is helpful to always have enough tasks.

Best regards to everyone.

Hi all,
since i ran two BOINC intances on my workstation (Windows 10 pro) BOINC is not able to download automatically new work units.
If i start the actualisation process by hand manually it works well and i get 600 WU´s on the main instance of BOINC.
The problem is that after appx. 3.5 hours all the jobs are done and i´m not sitting on my desk 24/7 to start the process again.

Here the BIONC notice

Hi all,

since one day my TITANz produce only "calculation error". There is no SLI only double precision is turn on in the settings of the Nvidia control panel.
At the moment i run WIN 7 Enterprise 64 Bit with following driver "382.33-desktop-win8-win7-64bit-international". Any newer driver is not working.
I use a Nvidia 1070, TITAN X and a TITAN Z in one computer.
If i use only the TITAN Z, everything works well.

Has anyone experiences with mixed GPU system?
