1) Message boards : Problems and Help : Won't request work? (Message 14373)

Its not debt, went I changed the 'request X days worth of work from .1 to .5, then it will request work, but anything below .5 it will not.

Maybe it is a BOINC issue?

The motivation for changing from .5 to .1 was so I could compete in the Ides of March challenge - since at my current setup I will have half a days work coming into the challenge, and only be able to complete at most half a days work during the challenge (with the rest being submitted after the challenge.

I don't have time to check in on the systems daily, so I was hoping for a solution that I could set and forget.

I seem to be having a problem exclusive to primegrid on. So I have several machines running boinc, with 3-4 projects attached (all suspended except primegrid and SIMAP).

So on 5 of them they have 4-8 CPUs, and they usually will keep work for each CPU. Starting this week, several of them are not requesting anymore work (SIMAP is still requesting work - but it is out of work so I don't suspend it) - But primegrid just requests '0 seconds of work'

Any help is appreciated.

Quick question:

I have been working through some Proth Prime Sieves, and most run anywhere from 2.5 hours to 9 hours (for machines with hyperthreading enabled).

But I noticed 1 machine seems to have some PPS WUs that are estimated at 40 hours runtime - this machine has HT on, so on a regular machine I would say the expected runtime would be about 19-20 hours.

Is this normal? It doesn't really matter but it just seems a little odd since all of the other PPS WUs have been 8-9 hours on this machine.

One of the WUs is

Can you please enable this on my account. I added a 64 Xeon, and plan to put on this for a long time ;)
