After upgrading my BOINC client is pre-fetching work (downloading a new WU when the current one is at ~90%) even though "resource share" and "maintain enough work for" is both set to zero.
Anybody else experience this? Any way to disable that?

No, it won't touch the ProgramData\BOINC folder.

That's really helpful, thanks...

Anyway, I am seeing a slight speed increase since upgrading (not sure why) so it was worth it.
And limiting "max # PG tasks" works as a temporary workaround for the pre-fetch-bug.
But if anybody has an idea how to fix that issue I'd appreciate it.

I believe it's a 'feature' to keep you from being out of work if the Server etc goes down at the point you finish a workunit and ask for the next workunit.

There is no chance that Boinc client give you ANY speed boost, because boinc client doesn't do any calculation. Application that do calculation wasn't changed :)

There is no chance that Boinc client give you ANY speed boost, because boinc client doesn't do any calculation. Application that do calculation wasn't changed :)


Hmmmmm, well I guess Yves (or stream) somehow gave me a speed boost for GFN of 2 hours :) :P

Well depending on your CPU and how old your version was on your old client... over the past few versions of BOINC a few CPU related improvements have been inserted for newer CPU's and the Processor Features of some CPU's have been corrected or updated.

Here is my CPU Feature string from Client boot
Processor features: fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss htt tm pni ssse3 cx16 sse4_1 sse4_2 popcnt aes syscall nx lm vmx smx tm2 dca pbe

So under some conditions a newer Client could have given you a boost.

Message 139712 - Posted: 17 Apr 2020 | 22:40:39 UTC - in response to Message 139547.

After upgrading my BOINC client is pre-fetching work (downloading a new WU when the current one is at ~90%) even though "resource share" and "maintain enough work for" is both set to zero.
Anybody else experience this? Any way to disable that?


I forgot about your post and installed 7.16.5 today with a fresh install of Windows.
The same issue happened to me. The Resource Share value was not being respected. Running PG (SGS + GFN17low) and GFN13 from the private server resulted in me getting almost no GFN13 tasks and near constant GFN17low work with PG set to 0 resource share.

Reverting back to 7.14.2 resolved that issue.

Technically it does have to do some calculations in order to show you the estimated remaining amount of time on a task, based on its current progress and time elapsed so far.

Which version *exactly* was this change implemented?

I looked through all the release notes, and can't find it. The change in client behavior is clearly real, as described. So I want to change my clients back, just far enough to avoid this defect, and still get the most of the improvements/fixes.

7.14.2 didn't have the problem, so I suppose somewhere between 7.16.5 and 7.15.1, since now I'm on 7.16.5 I am having this problem. But I don't care most of the time.

7.14.2 had alot of problems that were fixed in the 7.15 and 7.16 series, not sure which if any affect here though.
