I cannot get work for my machines. They get the message
BUNDY-3

14603 Universe@Home 26/05/2023 4:03:46 PM Requesting new tasks for CPU
14604 Universe@Home 26/05/2023 4:03:47 PM Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
14605 Universe@Home 26/05/2023 4:03:47 PM Project has no tasks available
14606 Universe@Home 26/05/2023 4:03:47 PM Project requested delay of 11 seconds


BUT when I look at the server status it says there is a lot of work

Tasks ready to send 3354136


This is an example machine:

https://universeathome.pl/universe/show_host_detail.php?hostid=661320

My preferences are set to accept all tasks and also Test tasks.



Is the server just bogged down because of the Formula BOINC Challenge ??

Another idiotic challenge? That could explain it.

Been getting the "Project has no tasks available" message for an hour or so myself.


Edit- In progress work is climbing almost vertically, so it looks like a case of another challenge & the Feeder/servers can't handle the load.

Seem to be able to get work as required again.

I put 1 day and 1.1 day of work in reserve in the boinc manager with no other tasks running.
You'd be better off with 2 Days and 0.01 Additional days.
The larger the Additional days value, the more the cache runs down before it gets topped up.
