Hi,

The "Work done" and "Avg. work done" numbers are not updating when I check the Projects tab in BOINC Manager. This isn't a new problem - it's been the case ever since I re-added LHC@home to BOINC a few months ago.

I see from looking at the Event Log that tasks are being successfully completed and there are no error messages in the log.

I'm running BOINC Manager 7.20.2 and Virtual Box 6.1.40 on a 64-bit Windows laptop (fully patched). I'd also add that other projects I'm running under BOINC (Einstein@Home and World Community Grid) are having those numbers updated as tasks are completed. Is there some setting or preference I need to adjust to allow those numbers to update for LHC@home?

Thanks,

Richard

Your host is returning only errors: https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/results.php?hostid=10815829
Look into one of your results for possible solutions or else read the extended Checklist to setup VBox right:

This computer reports only 7.9 GB RAM.
Even if VirtualBox is correctly installed it will always suffer from overload if ATLAS runs on it.
Especially in a multicore setup.
CMS may also be too heavy.

Best would be to enable only SixTrack and Theory.
