Is there something wrong with the server?
I am only getting 2 units for my GPU (PPS-sieve or AP27), while I have my buffer set on 1 day.
I normally get 100 tasks.
Or did I mess something up in my settings somewhere?

Hi Arjant2,

This could be related to BOINC badly overestimating the time required to process these tasks. What is the "Remaining (estimated)" time for each one? If it is much higher than it should be, insert the line <fraction_done_exact/> into your app_config file for those apps.

Here is an example which will run either 2 PPS-Sieve tasks or 1 AP27 task at a time:

<app>
<name>ap26</name>
<fraction_done_exact/>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>1</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.1</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>

<app>
<name>pps_sr2sieve</name>
<fraction_done_exact/>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.1</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Kellen

Boinc is estimating 7 minutes on a PPS Sieve unit.
It only takes less than 2 minutes to complete.
But with the 1 day buffer that should not really be an issue I think?

I do get a lot of units for the CPU when I request them, so it is GPU bound.

Message 133032 - Posted: 20 Sep 2019 | 16:59:08 UTC - in response to Message 133031.

I just checked on two different BOINC versions and I'm not sure that my suggestion would solve this problem, as the estimated time is still higher than true time until the task begins to run, then it gets correctly calculated. Adding <fraction_done_exact/> helped me make sure that I always have one task waiting for when the previous one finishes (as I run with a buffer of 0), but for your issue it seems as though something else is at play.

In your preferences settings do you have "Max # of simultaneous PrimeGrid tasks" set to "No limit"? That may be restricting the number of tasks sent to you. Aside from that I'm not certain what could cause the issue.

Regards,
Kellen

I have set the buffer to 5 days and still getting only one spare unit.

Well maybe it will solve it self.
Thanks for your help Kellen.

For once, the answer is "yes". :)

I changed the wrong setting while configuring the server for tomorrow's challenge. It should be back to normal now.
