All my settings are at the give me work when I ask for work, there is NO additional work asked for, yet I have over 1000 SOB units, which I know my machine cannot do in the allotted time. I have aborted many, and it keeps getting worse. Something with the scheduler is screwing with my settings and I really would like to find a solution instead of screwing with thousands of SOB tasks.

Possible reason: Due to some technical difficulties, PrimeGrid still uses single "duration correction factor" for application. If you did a lot of GPU work earlier, your dcf may became autotuned to match GPU FLOPS, but became complete mess for CPU applications.

If you like to experiment, manually edit client_state.xml (be sure to shutdown Boinc client first) and remove line with "<duration_correction_factor>" setting (or reset its value to 1)

I have the same problem here. No, trying a different value for <duration_correction_factor>, 10 instead of 0.9, doesn't help.

Rather, my BOINC client requests new tasks in short bursts from time to time.
Preferences are to store more than 0.01 day of work and 0 additional work, but it requests 14 Genefer 21 CPU tasks in a short burst.
A Genefer 21 GPU task typically runs for 7-8 hours, and a Genefer 21 CPU MT (4-threaded) task (with affinity set to run on 1 CCX of 3700X without SMT) runs for about 20 hours on my computer. Thus, the GPU task is not vastly faster than the MT task.

The BOINC client should well know the task durations and only request new tasks accordingly, but this is not the case in my experience. I am simultaneously running a SR5 (4-threaded) task or PPSE earlier, and the client decided to download hundreds of tasks on and on, which hurts my first ratio in PPSE, and causes hundreds or thousands to be abandoned.

If you are using any max_concurrent settings in an app_config.xml file, try removing them, as they can cause an (almost) infinite work fetch loop.

Sorry, setting <duration_correction_factor> to 10 is nonsense. It bloats the ETA by 10 times and did not help with the situation. I should reset the value to 1.

It is auto-corrected to 0.9 again but I think this should not matter much.

I use max_concurrent for llrSR5 and genefer (GFN21) because I use Process Lasso to set affinity based on process name. If I run 2 SR5 tasks and set to all cores without SMT, it won't assign them to the exact cores within each CCX, and eventually #1 runs on cores 0,1,2,7 and #2 on 3,4,5,6, both cross CCX.

EDIT:

You are RIGHT, I somehow left the line <project_max_concurrent>5</project_max_concurrent> on. By removing this line, I feel it is finally working properly.

Thanks for the precious answer!

For reference, there is a bug report for BOINC client version 7.16.11, that describes that app_config.xml <max_concurrent> can cause continuous work fetch.

https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/issues/4322

https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/issues/4117

The client may enter the bugged state somehow. The immediate and logical solution is to restart the client.

To follow up, I quit trying and enable only one CPU subproject to run on 4 cores. The other 4 cores are to be used by a different BOINC project. This way, I can avoid using <max_concurrent> to run 2 subprojects in parallel and avoid the work fetch bug totally.

Restarting the client does not work. Have done this several times.
If I can, I try and download a previous version and install.

Do you happen to still use <max_concurrent> or <project_max_concurrent> in your app_config.xml ?

I have not seen the bug again in the last two days. It was definitely triggered by these tags.

Yes, I am doing GEN15, and it is a waste of time doing 1 on my high speed GPU, so I am currently running 8. I was going to make it 16, but with this stupid bug, and not having time to downgrade, I have left it at 8. I should just get the downgrade done and hope this stops. My app_config. Maybe if I move max_concurrent under the gpu_versions this could fix it? Or will that break the code?
<app_config> <app> <name>genefer15</name> <max_concurrent>8</max_concurrent> <gpu_versions> <gpu_usage>.12</gpu_usage> <cpu_usage>1</cpu_usage> </gpu_versions> </app> </app_config>

<max_concurrent> is not needed. This will be enough to run 8 simultaneous GFN15 tasks. Change .12 into .06 to run 16. If anything, try turn down <cpu_usage> too.

That's due to the <cpu_usage> that BOINC thinks 1 GPU task requires a full core. Try turn down that number to 0.01. I did so to make milkyway@home run 8 tasks on a Titan Black GPU while the CPU is fully occupied.
