As the scheduler is still not handing out any Atlas-Tasks I decided to allow the scheduler to send me tasks from any application by activating the setup for this in Project-Preferenzes.

You can see, that the scheduler checks the preferred Apps, but doesn't come to the fallback "other tasks". So, the machine still doesn't get any work:

8571 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:29 update requested by user
8572 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:30 Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.
8573 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:30 Requesting new tasks for CPU
8574 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:30 Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
8575 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:30 No tasks sent
8576 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:30 No tasks are available for ATLAS Simulation
8577 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:30 No tasks are available for Benchmark Application
8578 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:30 Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
8579 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:30 Requesting new tasks for CPU
8580 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:30 Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
8581 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:30 No tasks sent
8582 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:30 No tasks are available for ATLAS Simulation
8583 LHC@home 19-06-2017 15:30 No tasks are available for Benchmark Application


Supporting BOINC, a great concept !

We have seen this here too in the past and brought it up with the BOINC community.

Apparantly this feature works only if there are no tasks left in the queue on the server, which is not the case currently. (There are a bunch of waiting ATLAS tasks that wait for a scheduler slot. They should be coming now.)

I just received one Atlas task about 15 minutes ago.
