    Hi,

    I put the Sztaki, SETI and Einstein project in a \"no new work\" status, because I want my computer to finish the climate prediction WU ASAP.

    Then I reactivated the programs. Everything is running well, but SZTAKI.

    First it is requested some new WU\'s but it is stopped and now when i push the update button it is always says \"not requesting new work\"

    I thought it is just a small error, but my other computer also did the same. Suddenly it is stopped receiving WU\'s for Sztaki. Same message. Then a month later surprisingly it is contiued its work though i did nothing :))

    I thought it could be because of the BOINC manager, but e.g. I\'ve had a same share settings of computation for SETI and SZTAKI. SETI works, but SZtaki dont.?

    Why?

      It probably is the BOINC Manager; the way it determines short- and long-term debts can sometimes produce strange-seeming behaviour when instructions or preferences are changed. It may be that it happened to get the SETI work first, then decided it was in danger of missing some deadlines; it may be that before the suspension SZTAKI had accumulated some long-term debt to the others; the suspension may also have confused it about your average turnaround time & workload. My understanding of the whole thing is fairly vague; see the BOINC Wiki for details, maybe starting here.

      Your debt situation &c. for each project at a given moment should be possible to ascertain from the contents of various tags under <project> in the client_state.xml document: <short_term_debt>, <long_term_debt>, <resource_share>, & <duration_correction_factor>.
