RP4 is now common, and Raspberry Pi 64bit (aarch64) is available. Any chance for a 64 bit Universe ULX app that just works?

You are getting the ULX tasks? I cannot get any, even thought the server status page says they are available.

Let's put aside the differing rates of failure for now. Do we know the cause of the failures? Is anything being done to fix the problem?

I think one of two possibilities:

1) Server Status page is broken. It is showing that tasks are available, when in reality, there are none.


2) A homogeneous redundancy problem I have seen in the past at other projects. All the tasks available are for one particular rare combination of OS and CPU type that no one but the admin and a few others are running. And no tasks available for most of the users who have more common combinations of OS and CPU type.

For what it is worth, I have 1 linux machine (64 bit linux mint), 8 windows machines (Win 7 64 and win 10 64), and 11 Macs (latest OS). All are 64 bit intel CPUs. None are getting any tasks. All are being told none available.

Everything seems to be working normally for my windows clients. But when my android client tries to communicate with the server, it gets error messages:

Posted 17 Nov 2015 by zombie67 [MM]

I have changed my preferences for home and work several times in past 6 weeks or so but IT NEVER PROPAGATES TO THE CLIENT/PC/TABLET...
CLIENT SEEMS TO ONLY READ "DEFAULT" PREFERENCES when IT communicates with the project server(s).

I can confirm the same problem. Set up preferences for one of the alternative locations. Assign a machine to that alternative location. Machine still gets default location settings.

Funny, this morning i had the idea to ask zombie :D

Zombie, do you have such problems with uploads & deadlines?
IIRC your location was california?

At first, the machines would download way too much work, and everything runs in panic mode. I think the time estimates for the tasks may be too small. However, the BOINC client will apply a Duration Correction Factor to the project as tasks complete. So now my queue is normal size and not running in panic mode.

With regard to the uploads, they usually take ~3 minutes to upload. With task run times of several hours, the uploads never get backed up for me.

That's true, there must be such an option, afaik Gerasim@home crew uses it.

Gerasim uses custom BOINC on the server side. They re-wrote it to run on windows for some reason. In doing so, they changed many features.

OK, now it works. I stopped using BS BAM, added manually Universe@Home using Manager. It downloaded all project files and started crunching. Then I restarted using BS BAM. All seems to be OK, though these steps are quite laborious.

I am guessing the problem is with BAM, not with the project.

Because all of them gone.

I will do some more WU's soon.

Yep. Plenty of tasks now.

I detached from the test project to avoid confusing BOINC. I am doing all the detach/attach directly with BOINCmanager, not BAM. I am not getting the error. However, I cannot get any work.
