......get a cache of wu\'s on my dual x5355 system.

The current parameters allow all of my other sytsems to cache (1 days worth) a couple of extra wu\'s, yet the x5355 never has any wu\'s cached.
So I end up with a core or two idle because the system
gets pushed back by the \"last attempt to recent\" error.

Surely this has something to do with the core count.


Great to have work !!

Just asking if you have your preferences set to allow 8 cores to be read?

Its running under Ubuntu server.
The system manager shows 8 cores, and if there is work they all be running.
It just never cache\'s any extra wu\'s like my other system do.
Preferences are set to 32 cores..... 8]

If you are getting a "last attempt to recent" error message, it means you are manually pushing the "Update" button before the 15 minute timer has expired. LHC has their server set up so that you can only request work units once every 15 minutes. And on each request it will give you at most 2 work units at a time. Then you have to wait 15 minutes and (maybe) get 2 more.

Thanks for the input Toby, but you are not understanding.
All of the other systems are able to cache 8-12 extra work units per the \"enough work for 1 days\" parameter.
This included the active 4 or 8 active wu\'s in process.

Only on this system it does not, this affects LHC and Einstein as well, so its not a LHC specific issue.

BTW: I do not sit there manually pressing the update button.

Oy, Perle. See my reply over at the Einstein forums if you haven\\\'t already done so: here .
