Greetings and warm welcome ...

I see that the number of UNvalidated tasks for DYFL is increasing !

significantly !

what may be the cause of that ?

The number of tasks in progress steadily increased over the last year from 200 to more than 600. Last week alone it jumped from 500 to 600 within a day. Maybe some users with high-end GPUs of new RTX generation?

I bought a new laptop and installed latest BOINC 7.16.11. Found out that version ignores 0 task cache setting. Since my laptop has RTX 2060, 145 GFN Extreme tasks downloaded before I noticed. I'm not manually aborting 145 tasks. Probably 6 GFN tasks will finish before the rest timeout Nov. 15th.

I fellback to BOINC 7.14.2, same as all my other computers. Everything OK now.

I'm not manually aborting 145 tasks.


If you want, you can select all of the extra tasks (normal click and shift-click on the first and last tasks, respectively), and abort all of them in one shot.

You can also go into Your Account on the top of the column to the left and then Edit Prime Grid Preferences and set this line:
Max # of simultaneous PrimeGrid tasks
(Sets the maximum # of PrimeGrid tasks, including GPU tasks)
(Recommended setting is "No limit")

to zero, that means you will only get one task at a time but it does apply to every kind of task you get in that venue. So if you are crunching both cpu and gpu tasks from PrimeGrid on that pc this won't work.

There's nothing wrong with my settings. It's like I said, there's something wrong with BOINC 7.16.11 that ignores my BOINC client computing preferences. Using BOINC 7.14.2 everything is OK. I don't mess with my account settings except to select task type. I use app_config to configure number of CPUs and tasks for each type of task.

The number of tasks in progress steadily increased over the last year from 200 to more than 600. Last week alone it jumped from 500 to 600 within a day. Maybe some users with high-end GPUs of new RTX generation?

Task stats


I bought a new laptop and installed latest BOINC 7.16.11. Found out that version ignores 0 task cache setting. Since my laptop has RTX 2060, 145 GFN Extreme tasks downloaded before I noticed. I'm not manually aborting 145 tasks. Probably 6 GFN tasks will finish before the rest timeout Nov. 15th.

I fellback to BOINC 7.14.2, same as all my other computers. Everything OK now.


You can also go into Your Account on the top of the column to the left and then Edit Prime Grid Preferences and set this line:
Max # of simultaneous PrimeGrid tasks
(Sets the maximum # of PrimeGrid tasks, including GPU tasks)
(Recommended setting is "No limit")

to zero, that means you will only get one task at a time but it does apply to every kind of task you get in that venue. So if you are crunching both cpu and gpu tasks from PrimeGrid on that pc this won't work.

The setting does works correctly - I'm using 7.16.11 on both PCs, plus I suspect we'd hear lots of complaints if it didn't work. There's something else amiss with GDB's settings.


There's nothing wrong with my settings. It's like I said, there's something wrong with BOINC 7.16.11 that ignores my BOINC client computing preferences. Using BOINC 7.14.2 everything is OK. I don't mess with my account settings except to select task type. I use app_config to configure number of CPUs and tasks for each type of task.

or there's something wrong with your app_config... I bet it works without that.

There's nothing wrong with Boinc it's a 'feature' they added so your pc isn't sitting idle waiting for a project to send you a new task as you get close to finishing you current task. Most websites have a backoff now and some of them are long enough for your cpu's or gpu's to sit idle if you use a zero resource share.

Also PrimeGrid redid their choices for all LLR tasks so you can make most of those app_config file settings on the website now and have settings for each computer if you use a different venue for each one.

I have a different venue for each of my machines. I have a different app_config on each of my machines.
I can config app_config with the number of CPUs uniquely for each task type on each machine,
and don't need to fiddle with the number of CPUs for each task when I change task types on the website.

With BOINC version 7.14.2 and cache setting 0, a new PG task wouldn't be downloaded until a task had less than 3 minutes remaining.

With BOINC version 7.16.11 and cache setting 0, BOINC would download PG tasks until restrained by venue setting. Cache setting 0 is basically being ignored.

Do you mean this setting?



As that works fine with 7.16.11. I've used it both blank as it is now and various settings from .25 up to 3 days.

No. I use the BOINC Manger's Options > Computing preferences to set my cache.
