I changed my cache setting a few days ago on three clients. Subsequently, I've been getting thousands of 321 sieve tasks being downloaded. The clients are that fast, so the tasks are timing out/aborted. This is new behavior for me, and I suspect something is awry.

321sv have a life of 4 days, so make sure your cache is no longer than that. Also BOINC can incorrectly estimate the time to complete, thus download more than is necessary.

Try running benchmarks in Boinc to maybe correct estimates. I also have seen this issue if you are using an App_config, are you using one?

No, I'm not using the app_config.

The benchmarks seem to run after each reboot, which I've done several times on the various computers with Windows upgrades.

Thanks for the thoughts. Looks like I'll just run like this until "the end".

Type windows update in the search box on the bottom left of the screen and it will bring up Advanced Windows Update Options and you can then pause updates for a week at a time with each click.

Having just switched on a 1-day buffer I'm seeing the same thing. What I think it's doing is saying "this task takes 2 hours on your pc so I'm sending you #ofprocessors * (24 hours/2) tasks".
What it has forgotten is that I'm running 4 threads per task so I only need 1/4 of what it's sending.
