Today when I got some Sophie German LLR Tasks, I got over 1280 tasks... I mean sure, they complete in ~12 minutes (Max 14 minutes) each running 4 at a time, but almost 1300 tasks is way too many. I have my preferences set to always connected to internet, and maintain work for an additional 0 days. Why am I getting so many darn tasks?

Today when I got some Sophie German LLR Tasks, I got over 1280 tasks... I mean sure, they complete in ~12 minutes (Max 14 minutes) each running 4 at a time, but almost 1300 tasks is way too many. I have my preferences set to always connected to internet, and maintain work for an additional 0 days. Why am I getting so many darn tasks?


It's really hard to say, but I can guess it might have something to do with us trying to get more accurate time estimates out of boinc. We've adjusted some values to make them more realistic, but your computer may have previously adjusted its timing estimates based on the previous setting. Therefore, it may think these tasks are a lot smaller than the previous ones.

What will happen is than in 12 minutes, when the first task completes, your computer will realize that these tasks will take a long time, and will realize that many of them won't complete by the deadline. It won't download any more tasks. When the deadline passes, all tasks that haven't been started yet will automatically be cancelled, while those that are still in progress will be completed and returned to the server (and you'll get credit for them.) In other words, no manual action is required on your part.

The maximum number of tasks the server will send to you is 320 tasks per core. 320 x 4 cores is 1280.

Now that explanation is all well and good, as long as your computer ASKED for more work. You've got both work buffer settings at zero, so it shouldn't be asking for much work at all. That's perplexing. I don't have an answer for that.

Assuming the DCF on your computer is 1.00, based on the fpops size set in those workunits and your benchmarks, BOINC should be estimating just under 14 minutes for each task.

I have no explanation for that -- your computer shouldn't be requesting work.

It's a number maintained by boinc that is used to scale the time estimates based upon actual performance of your computer on real applications.

What are the following settings for the venue that is downloading all this work?

BOINC will try to maintain at least this much work.

Maintain enough work for an additional

If more than blank on both these items it will ask for extra work. If left blank (0) you will only get work when needed. These are shared across ALL BOINC Projects you are connected to, so if you are trying to keep extra work in one project, it will also do that in other projects.

It's really hard to say, but I can guess it might have something to do with us trying to get more accurate time estimates out of boinc. We've adjusted some values to make them more realistic, but your computer may have previously adjusted its timing estimates based on the previous setting. Therefore, it may think these tasks are a lot smaller than the previous ones.

there's something broken but it seems to be broken in different ways depending on the host.
My i7-970 thinks 321 and PPS Sieve tasks will take a lot longer than they actually do so there's no waiting tasks there.
my i7-2600 was under the impression that PSP was going to take a few minutes to run so has gone and fetched 14 of them.

I have 2 i7's running Linux each of which can complete Woodall's in 28-30 hours. Both are running BOINC 6.10.58. Both are set to "additional work buffer" of 0.01 days (about 15 minutes) and to connect every 0 days (always connected). One is running 3 tasks with ~6 hours to go, but has downloaded two more as-yet-unstarted tasks and assigned them an expected runtime of 2 hours 30 minutes (!) each. That's something new to me; usually the estimates are way too high (not that I pay any attention to them, but this thread made me look). The other is running 4 tasks, each 75% complete, mostly reasonable estimates to complete, and nothing queued yet.

I'm not sure if this is another symptom of the misbehavior described by the OP, but I thought I'd mention it.

Probably unrelated to the OP's problem. We've adjusted (i.e., fixed) the size settings on most tasks. That will account for newer tasks having different estimates than older tasks, until the boinc client adjusts the DCF. The goal is to be more consistent between sub-projects, so (in theory) you can run lots of different tasks without messing up the estimates.

What is the DCF? On my PC it keeps jumping around. Seems to be going lower and lower, a few days ago it was ~0.5 and now its ~0.3
EDIT: Now its ~0.42

A couple more questions:

In BOINC Manager, please go into activity and are they all set to Run Based on Preferences? If not, then it's using local preferences. Then you need to check how you have your local preferences set.

Are you using a BOINC Manager (like BAM)? If so, you need to set your preferences through that, not on PG itself.

They say "Run Always" and "Use GPU Always". Should I change that?
Nope, no BOINC manager.

BOINC Preferences

My preferences are set how they are supposed to. I've tried "Run always" and "Run based on preferences" And both send craploads of tasks.

EDIT: Oh crud.. Now I'm producing those "3 Second Error"s... There's quite a few in my pending.
EDIT 2: All my pps_llr_xxxxxxxxxx are being the 3 second errors, but my pps_llr_extended_xxxxxxxx are not.

Under BOINC manager Computing Prefs > Network usage > min + max work buffer, how many days is it set to? Try just setting each to 0.1 then setting to No New Tasks under Projects tab.

Holy crud. Thank you. It was set to 5 days and 10 days. But in my primegrid prefs here on the site it's set to 0... Lets see if it will stop getting so many tasks
EDIT: Yup, only got 6 tasks when I requested some. Thanks!

No problem :). Always best to keep a small cache so u don't hog work for others and are pretty quick submitting units. Also if u have a HDD crash or other problem we would have to wait until the cache times out. And something else but I've forgotten now :|

Oh yes that's it: don't abort units which have already started - you can however abort units which have not.

The BIG reason not to download a lot of tasks is it makes it less likely that you will be the first to report any prime that you find. If it's sitting on your computer for a week before it gets processed, that gives the other guy a week's head start.

Yeah, that's why I was irritated at the huge work queue. I could finish all of them (Yes, 1280) PPS LLRs before the deadline, but if I found a prime, my chances of being primary finder would be next to 0
