Due to a problem with the WMAgent submission task, a new batch of CMS jobs is not being put in the Condor queue. So, the queue is now draining and there will be no more jobs available in a couple of hours. Best to set your BOINC instance to No New Tasks if you can, to avoid spurious compute error terminations.

Due to a problem with the WMAgent submission task ...
The WMAgent seems to continue being a big trouble maker :-(
There has been a release change last summer or fall (if I remember correctly), and another major intervention five days ago or so. And again, it took only short time until the WMAgent failed again.

As I was saying once before, from what I have been told, special knowledge is needed for putting all the WMAgent settings in a correct manner. Maybe the people working with the WMAgent should be given special training ...

During last night WMAgent worked fine and delivered enough subtasks.
Instead the distribution of new WUs hung and still hangs with the message:
"No tasks are available for CMS Simulation"

<edit>
Oops, sorry.
There's nothing wrong with CMS at the moment.
I looked at another subproject.
:-X

Yes, in fact Alan was still awake and fixed the problem pronto so the queue never actually drained (but I was already in bed as I had to be up early this morning). "Normal" service has been resumed. :-)
