1) Message boards : News : 30 Workunit Limit Per Request - Fix Implemented (Message 68491)
Posted 8 Apr 2019 by Aurum
I never get enough MW WUs. I can run 200 at a time. Some computers don't get any while some others get a steady supply. They all have the same app_config.xml. Server Status shows 10,000 WUs ready but I have computers that haven't gotten any in forever.
Is there some kind of governor on this project???
I can't find anything to explain the difference.

I believe I fixed it.
First: Linux 19 does not default to include recommended dependencies. Fix with 1.2.1: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/mint-cinnamon-first
Second: Install CUDA: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Cuda

I upgraded a computer from Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia to Linux Mint 19 Tara and now BOINC will not run GPU WUs any more. I'm running BOINC 7.12.0. The only Notice is:
Milkyway@Home: Notice from BOINC
Your current settings do not allow tasks from this project. To fix this, you can change Project Preferences on the project's web site.

Anyone know how I can get GPUs working again???
BTW, it took several hours to upgrade to Linux 19. NoMachine works so much faster on this headless computer than Linux 18.3 which was unbearably slow.
I don't recommend upgrading until more kinks get worked out.
Tried Folding@Home 7.5.1 & it DLs WUs but shortly after they start running they fail and another WU is DLed. All 3 1080 Ti's do the same. I have all the latest updates and the latest Nvidia driver.

Grammar seems ambiguous, could be worded better. Seems counter intuitive. Shouldn't higher frame rates run WUs faster???
I'm trying 30 fps but I don't see any difference. Does this parameter work???
Frequency (in Hz) that should try to complete individual work chunks. Higher numbers may run slower but will provide a more responsive system. Lower may be faster but more laggy. 
default 60 (corresponds to 60 fps)
