Thanks! I had suspended some un-started sieve tasks that could wait until the challenge was over. Aborted them, got a bunch of both Mega and Low to run.

Are there tasks available? Or is the server not running? Even for MEGA?
3) Message boards : Number crunching : Short deadlines? (Message 21482)
Posted 4840 days ago by crystalsys
I've got 2 machines, and both seem to be getting WUs with short deadlines so that they run high priority.

This is the only project where this is happening, and considering that I also run SETI and CPDN which also send long running WUs, and those don't come with deadlines where they end up high priority. This seems like PrimeGrid is assigning too-short deadlines.

The PrimeGrids end up high priority from the get-go. The others don't unless the machines have been down for some reason (which is not often but did happen before we got the generator and the power was out for a week).

I will let the PrimeGrids run out and reset the project, but this still seems like something that needs to be fixed.

Also getting Prime Sierpinski download failures, but Sophie Germain is downloading fine, as is Woodall - though I've still got one I wonder if it will finish in time.

In the last couple of days I've had assignments with estimated 500+ hours to completion, with completion dates that are way too soon for that estimate. In addition, I had 2 of those at one time.

When I aborted the two long ones together, I was reassigned a short and a long, but still there would be no way I'd make the long deadline.
