OK those tasks you added got used up quickly. With an average 36,000+ GFlops a day and large contributions by Gridcoin we need more tasks adding so the pipeline is kept full.

We are out of work again. My CPUs are saying "please feed me".

Rebirther - is there anything we can do to help with the double checking?

Hey Reb why are you running us so lean on tasks? At the moment we only have SB-shorts and with so many GHz available they will run out soon. With so much keyspace remaining why don't you load up the server with heaps, as in billions, of tasks?

My CPUs are starving, no work available from any sub-project at the moment. Please feed us!

Status page says there are 775k tasks available but I cannot get any. What's up?
Preferences are set to every sub-project except average and long.

When you try to attach a new host to this project, your fisrt step is to see if the project is in the listing contained within BOINC manager.
When you select SRBase is shows the url to connect with is the old one without the hyphen (http://srbase.myfirewall.org/sr5/) instead of the new one with the hyphen.

So the new address includes the hyphen?

Can you update the one built in to BOINC Manager?

Why does the project's home page say to use this URL:

http://srbase.my-firewall.org/sr5/

but when attaching a new computer to the project by using BOINC Manager (BOINC v7.6.33) it uses:

http://srbase.myfirewall.org/sr5/

without the hyphen between 'my' and 'firewall'?

Only available work is Riesel base. Can we populate the other sub-projects soon or my machines will starve?

Yes please let us crunch some of them.

KEP / Rebirther,
Could we get a project update status please? The home page information was last updated more than a month ago.

Reb, Could I request some more long tasks please?

Mankka* I like your thinking.

It would certainly be encouraging to have a badge as recognition for finding significant items as you say - discover a large Prime or solve a Base.

I wish we had more continuity of tasks to crunch across all the sub-projects. We seem to have a flood and drought scenario.

At 7 seconds a task that is about 36 hours work per user (60 users). Speaking for myself, I have more than 30 multi-core computers running SRBase. This means about an hours worth of work for each machine.

Can we get more long and RB-short tasks please?

Project keeps running out of tasks I need to reach 10M in each sub-project. Darned annoying having hundreds of CPU GHz idling.

Thank you for your work Reb. All seems OK.
20) Message boards : Number crunching : BOINC priority settings question (Message 2707)
Posted 10 Jul 2016 by Profile vaughan
After many years of running BOINC I still am frustrated by its settings for task or project priority. For example, my Resource Share for SRBase is 100 and the Resource Share for Nanosurface is 75. The SRBase tasks are Riesel Base Short with an estimated run time on this Windows 7 PC of 49 seconds and a task deadline date of 11 July 2016 at 07:14am. The Nanosurface tasks' deadline is 18 July 2016 at 10:07am and the estimated run time is 3hrs 8 minutes.

Why is BOINC 7.6.22 allowing all of the Nanosurface tasks to run and not allowing any of the SRBase tasks to run?

Is there another setting I need to alter so that SRBase gets priority?
