Wow so much work to crunch but its in the middle of the Primegrid challenge - bad timing.

Really hard to get sufficient work to crunch with these 1 second tasks. If I hammer the "update" button in BOINC Manager I might get a dozen tasks occasionally. Cannot do this across all my machines.

Why is the server so reluctant to issue work?

why is it so hard to get work? I have multiple computers both Windows 7, Windows 10 and Linux trying to get tasks. Cache is set to 0.1 days. I hit update in BOINC Manager and it says no tasks sent. If I repeat this many times I might be lucky and get some tasks. The Server status says >250,000 S Base tasks are available. Well hand them out!!!

Some machines manage to get tasks and build a cache but other machines sit idle for hours. Is this a user setting error? Could it be that BOINC is still a stupid program as it has been since it started (but there is nothing else for DC to use)? Or is it something set by the srbase server?

So rebirther, when you run out of WUs here at srbase does that mean we should go to YoYo and crunch their WUs. In so doing it will create work over here?

Looks like we are in starvation mode again.

The server appears to be very slow today. Is this due to the R7 tiny tasks? My computers keep running out of work and it takes many clicks on Update in BOINC Manager to get some more downloaded.

Is there a way to get more tasks sent? As the tasks are completed in under 30 seconds the machines constantly run out of work and sit idle.

Rebirther ... we are out of tasks again. Time to feed our crunchers please.

Select the shorter tasks if you are going to switch off or re-boot your computer.

Patiently waiting for more tasks to crunch (yet again!).

I really have never understood why this project runs out of work so often when there are trillions of numbers that need processing. Darned annoying to waste CPU cycles. And no the stupid project doesn't automatically search for new tasks when they become available. All my computers just sit there empty idling away. Only when I click on get more work does it spring into action.

Hats off to the Gridcoin folk who somehow manage to get work to crunch.

Why is sieving for this project done by yoyo@home and not as a subproject here?

On my machines all the Siever tasks at yoyo abort immediately with a computation error so that project is useless to me.

Why don't you have a GPU sieve app like Primegrid has - PPS Sieve?

In your project information download it mentions the NPLB - No Prime Left Behind - project which is non-BOINC. Is this project SRBase really a BOINC version of NPLB?

I have planned since 2 years to write a paper how SRBase is working.

This would be interesting to read. I also don't understand why there are so many gaps in work. It seems to be a feast or famine scenario.

rebirther can we have some more tasks to crunch please? The server has run dry.

Out of work for a while now.

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!
