at the moment protein, a****, burp, lhc, l****** & pirates have no work, leavin seti einstein and climate with work .

Did you read the docs about the new scheduling limitations?

Basically, if 1 or more WU's are too close to deadline, it starts doing them in deadline order, and downloads NO new work until it gets out of deadline mode.

In "normal" mode, it is now keeping track of the long term debt to a project. So, if a project has been down for a long time, then when it comes back up it will get a ton of work, to the exclusion of other projects, until the debt is evened out. This factors in what your stated resource shares are too.

The effect is that some projects might get all your CPU for a while, but long term it will even out again.

Use BOINCview for a good way to see the debt numbers. The standard BOINC Manager does not show them. You'd need to read them out of the client state XML files.

ty grenadier,

got boincview ( [url=http://boincview.amanheis.de/' target='_blank]http://boincview.amanheis.de/[/url] ) for anyone who is interested.

Coming round to the idea of debt, but still a little unsure.

the main thing, is that now im getting wu's, and that what's matters.

science then credits.

The one with the positive debt will get more work. The negative debt likely will not. Over time, the positive debt will lower on the running projects. The negative debt will rise, since you're NOT running on those. Once the negative debt becomes positive again, that project will start grabbing more work.

Long term, the numbers tend to equalize. You'll see them see-saw as they balance out, but in the end, everything will get work. If one project is down for a while, it's debt will get really high, and then when that project comes back online, it will probably run a ton of work for that project to even things out again.

Also, they are affected by your resource shares. So, if you have SETI at 60, and 4 other projects at 10, for example, then SETI will get 6 times as many seconds than the other projects.
