This issue started occurring a couple days ago. There are periods of time where my computer is running fewer tasks than it is able to (e.g. 4 CPU tasks running even though my computer has 6 cores and BOINC is set to use 100% of the processors). Even when I manually press update in BOINC, tasks are not reliably fetched. Prior to this, every time my computer reported a result, it was able to download a new task. Any idea what is going on here?

Morning & happy new year.

Are there any errors on the events window? Something to the effect of error with HTML? Have you got more tasks showing in progress on your homepage tasks than visible in BOINC? It may have generated ghost units - in which case try completing existing work & remove/readd the PG project.

I noticed the same behaviour, hence maybe the same problem on my system.

BOINC scheduler seems to give processor time to each project *in turn*, for an amount, or equivalent, set in BOINC Manager (x% of processor time).

If your project cannot fill *its turn* with enough WUs, too bad. Scheduler will not use the void for WUs from other (sub)projects, even if they are waiting on your pc.

This may happen, if you have limited the number of concurrent WUs. Solution: relax the constraint on concurrency somewhat.

Edit: BOINC version 7.6.33

I detached from my other project that just sat in a suspended state anyway since I rarely participated in it. We'll see if that helps fix the issue.
