Do you use Ressourceshare of 0% ?


Thanks! :) This was the culprit.

Ok I get that, but I can't get 4 either. I can just get the one.

Also, it just doesn't fetch work quick enough. At times there's a whole minute (or more) when my GPU's simply idling because I can't get new WU's. Look at that in terms of WU's done: that's one WU not calculated for every two I do get :(


Are you also doing PrimeGrid with your gpu? If so it could just be a cache setting or the very intricate 'debt' value that some projects still use.


I have done so in the past, but am not currently doing so.

Hi guys,

I'm pretty familiar with BOINC but I'm unable to convince it to get multiple Milkyway@home tasks for my GPU. I'd love to do this as my internet connection is a bit dodgy at times and a single unit only runs for 2 and a bit minutes.

I've set the minimum and additional work buffer both to 1 day (but also tried with 2, 3 and 10 in either). I've got a couple of PrimeGrid tasks running on my CPU, but they've only got under an hour left each. There's no lack of drive space, my connection is all ok. All I get is the following message:

13476	Milkyway@Home	10/3/2013 7:30:24 PM	update requested by user	
13477	Milkyway@Home	10/3/2013 7:30:26 PM	Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.	
13478	Milkyway@Home	10/3/2013 7:30:26 PM	Not reporting or requesting tasks	
13479	Milkyway@Home	10/3/2013 7:30:27 PM	Scheduler request completed	


ANy idea what I can do to get some more tasks? Say 10 or 20 would be enough.
