I switched here from vLHC and have a machine which I dedicated to SixTrack tasks only (via profile), but I get them only very seldom: https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/results.php?hostid=10409063
I also have other machines enabled for other projects too and they also get only very few SixTrack tasks.
According to server status, there should be plenty of SixTrack tasks available, so I'm wondering what could be the problem. Or is this normal and in fact the SixTrack supply is very limited ?

Yes, unfortunately the sixtrack tasks are a rare sight.

The theory ones are not so resource intensive and common

The simplest of questions - there are some Sixtrack WUs currently available but they are not downloading - applies to 3/4 BOINC applications. Have I done something wrong settings-wise? Can anyone help, please? Rogerp

The Server Status webpage is cached so may not be up to date. I'm not getting any either.

Thanks both. I am OK for downloads to my backup pc but my Win10 machine has no WUs for SETI@, LHC@ or Milkyway@. Both pcs are failing to obtain LHC WUs. I shall wait until the maintenance days are over and check again. Roger

The sixtrack work is not so common, it normally comes in big batches.

I've had 20 sixtrack in last 8 day but 273 theory in last 3 for example
