    My one machine has been sitting doing nothing waiting on WU from Sztaki.

    Just not enough work to go around?

      they come just have to patient. once your system is actively doing them itll slowly stock up on units.

        Been doing the project for 18 months and am very familiar with it's momentum characteristic of supplying work to clients that already have done work and of favoring clients that only run Sztaki.

        The client in question was running Sztaki steadily and then nothing.

          Just set another project at zero resource share and you will do them until Sztaki fills your cache with workunits, it can take a few hours to a few weeks but eventually you should get lots of workunits.

            It's pretty irritating. From your comment I'm assuming you have a 7 day buffer and another 7 day buffer setup instead of a few hours.

            Have had two machines running no WU from any other project for over a week and can not get any SZTAKI WU's to download.

            Even sat next to the machine while watching TV series and requested WU every 5 minutes for a couple hours.

            The error of 'no work sent' instead of 'no work available' is obscure and implies it's not sending work for some unknown criteria.

              FWIW my observations show that my hosts are reliably getting new WUs only 3 times each hour at specific very short time intervals
              - :05 to :06
              - :25 to :26
              - :45 to :46
              During these intervals i am getting plenty of new WUs. During other intervals I am getting none or only 1 or 2 WUs (probably resents).

              My best guess is that the work generator of this project is setup to create new WUs only 3 times each hour. If a batch of new WUs is distributed then there are no WUs left until the next batch is generated.

              @admin: Any chance to change this odd behaviour of your work generator? The way it is setup now requires quite some baby sitting to keep ones caches full.

                I set up a macro to request work every 6 minutes on my one idle laptop and after 15 days it still has yet to receive one WU.
                I'll try to do manual requests during the mentioned time periods.

                  I am also not getting WUs.

                  I wonder if SZTAKI even has a moderator/admin ???

                  Have a nice day.
