Never seen that I have a couple of PC's that are running Spinhenge and they don't have a problem and are running with Simap.  If you have other projects running and the other projects have lots of task waiting to run then there may not be enough time to the deadline so it does not download ???

I just got the same (reached daily quota of 4 results) with Docking  :shock

I'm running wcg, but only one wu left to do.

Will try again after it's done.

Not real sure why but while I run spinhenge, freehall will not fully download.
Is not a biggie for the AA, will just run the one.

Den.

Interestingly Dingo, this message came when the cache had no work units for any project!

Anyway for the past 24 hrs cache is full - now with 94 WU's. Go figure.  ???

I had issues with Spinhenge last night too; cores with no work and no Spinhenge WUs being downloaded to run on them. Thinking there were issues with Spinhenge I set WCG to run in the interim...didn't want my i7 running all day with no work. This morning when I checked there were still no Spinhenge WUs downloaded. Will need to monitor tonight to get Spinhenge back to downloading work.

Spinhenge is not affecting Freehal.  Freehal has got it's own problems that stop downloading of work.

Nope, my i7 Win 7(64b) cannot get any new tasks. I suspended the last of the WCG and did an update of Spinhenge and the message simply says "Requesting new tasks for GPU; Scheduler request completed; got 0 tasks". I have been successfully running Spinhenge on this machine for about a week now, and then it just stopped downloading any new Spinhenge WUs.

Anyone know how I can force it to grab some WUs?

Have 149 Spinhenge wus sitting in TheGnat, including finalised and in progress wus. Have been told that I have reached my limit of 150 wus for the day. This could be the reason for the messages being received: when you DOWNLOAD 150 wus in a day, that is it. On TheGnat, when all other wus (WCG and Docking) are done, will have therefore 75 wus per core or roughly 1.87 days worth of wu per core.

Am currently downloading enough wus for 5 days for all tasks, hence this might be a reasonable assumption.

An I7 would therefore have just .45 days worth of work initially, if this restriction applies. Therefore, maybe the second winner in the poll gets a look in if this does prove to be the case.

(oh and TheGnat has a countdown clock with roughly 14 hrs to go til next contact. Shall see what happens then.)
