What's going on?

There are 14,945 Tasks available but when I "pump" the project (Suspend all other Projects and then Update LHC@Home) I get no new Tasks. Server Status looks good so I would expect to receive new Tasks.

Never mind. I see there was a posting in News about server issues holding up sending of new Tasks.

The other day I got my first wu from Six Track in at least a year. Wu-hoo! Yesterday i got 2 that failed to download, and at 7 am PST today I got three that are crunching merrily away. That's my story.

I'm not getting WUs anymore ...

It just say "No task sent" although there are plenty of WUs to go, and I have an empty cache.

I'm running BOINC v7.0.28 on Seven x64.

Same for me too. I have had a dozen or so WU in the last 48 hours but they don't take long to run Lets hope the server issues get ironed out soon so we can get on with some serious crunching.

I'm also running BOINC V7.0.28 on WIndowz 7 x64 and am getting no Tasks. I wonder if there is an issue with the latest version of BOINC.

Using 7.0.28, under Projects-Properties I see a -0.00 scheduling priority for this project. My other two running BOINC projects have non-zero scheduling priorities. So perhaps that is a source of the problem although it is a mystery why some people are fortunate enough to receive work units while others are not.

i have this host thats running boinc 7.0.25.

it has many projects attached but only three set to get new work for these projects (scheduling priority)

lhc (-0.00)
test4theory (-0.00)
gpugrid (-3.03)

that host hasnt been able to get work for lhc for the last two days or so. it gets steady work for t4t and gpugrid though. its inability to get work for lhc is not cache related, i only have one instance of t4t running on it and stopped all work from other projects to see if eventually it would get some lhc work so the cpu has been essentially idle for the last two days on that machine. i was gonna leave it free for the remainder of the weekend to see if there are any changes and monday ill set cpu work fetch back on for another project if it doesnt get anything for lhc by then.

ive been reading other threads about work quotas. im not sure if i understand how lhc enforces it but if my math is correct, there should be nothing preventing that machine from getting new tasks.

the other machines i have set to retrieve new work for lhc are getting work regularly. those have lhc scheduling priorities of:

-2.39, -0.05, -0.04, -0.04, -1.61, -0.11

i think youre right, its sorta a mystery to me too. i get work from non lhc projects with -0.00 (t4t) scheduling priorities though.

Someone mentioned in an other thread that only his sse2 application using computer was getting work. I don't have any sse2 application using computers but my generic and sse3 applications are idle for LHC currently. Last wu's I received was on 4th of July. So they are running other projects.

This is what I get over and over again. I got some tasks earlier this week and they ran correctly, but I can't get any more, even though the server shows several thousand ready to send.
