I noticed my pending increased sharply these days.

Of course, there are units waiting for a wingman to report (the deadline might be too long by the way), but also several results reported 4 times successfully but not yet validated.


Is everything OK with the server ?



(PS: Please do not ask me to go to the server status page, this is usually manually updated by admins on Boinc).

I think it might be that SZTAKI\'s server software needs updating for a proper fix, but in the meantime reverting the unintelligent Boinc Manager to version 5.10.45 is the workaround I am using.

iMac intel:
BOINC client version 5.10.45 for i686-apple-darwin = SZTAKI tasks (when available)
BOINC client version 6.2.14 for x86_64-apple-darwin = No tasks; platform not found

Thanks for your input Harry, this is what I did in the meantime (keeping all my fingers crossed that the BOINC \"downgrade\" does not cause any problems for preferences files structure etc) and it worked.

I just needed to change the BOINC preference settings as my Mac Pro has 4 cores and not 2 (max number of CPU used in a multi CPU machine was defaulted to 2).

I hope I\'ll get WU\'s now... ;-)

I have two machines attached to Sztaki.

Both Macintel, both Leopard 10.5.4

The first, a Mac Mini with boinc 5.10.45, the second a Mac Pro with Boinc Manager 6.2.14.

The first gets \"sometimes\" WU\'s and crunches them w/o problem.

The second gets the following messages:
Requesting 225133 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks
Scheduler request succeeded: got 0 new tasks
Message from server: platform \'x86_64-apple-darwin\' not found

Could it be that there is a problem with this version 6.2.14 and that I need to revert or is it something foreseen on Sztaki side ?

Thanks for the feedback ! :-)
