Hi, I'm having difficulty in getting work units to crunch. Server status says there are over 400 tasks available but on 2 Windows PCs I get 0 tasks sent. One is Win 10 other is Win 7, both 64-bit OS.

Mark - the lack of work units to crunch is very annoying for us volunteer crunchers. I hate having wasted CPU cycles so on advice from a team mate at AMD Users.com (Dirk) I have increased my "share" for Leiden to 500. This is an attempt to give it priority and try to get tasks to crunch.

However, this technique is only having limited success. Can we get a better flow of tasks please?

The only possible way I can think of to give a faster turn around of work units, is to change the time of the back log to less than 24h. If finished WUs are removed and deleted from the server DB faster, less storage and resources are needed and the result will be a faster flow of work. For this the db_purge deamon needs some code changes too. I will investigate this.

Well, I suppose the answer to my 1024 limit is they banned my setup or something.

Three other systems get tasks fine, but I can't get ANY more work on the X5680 2P setup...

Sigh...

The db purge daemon has been adapted to purge jobs from the db after 12h. Thatś all I could do. If one needs more work, add other projects :).

Well, the 2p setup can't get ANY tasks ever for months. I suppose that means the setup is somehow black-listed in your server somewhere... too many errors or something maybe?

Sad... running other things now....
