Hey guys,

after I finally managed to get this project working, or rather the camb_boinc2docker WUs, I find myself having another problem:
I don't get enough WUs, I often run out of work. After updating the project, nothing happens and it doesn't send me new WUs. Checking the server stats, there are constantly 500 WUs ready to be deployed.
Is there something I can do about this?

500 is normal. There are 25k already sent out to users

What does the event log say. What is your queue?

I set my BOINC Manager to store at least 3 days of work and up to an additional 3 days of work. However, after a few hours, I still run out of work and don't receive any new WUs. I set up an app_config.xml and set it to report results immediately, to maybe trigger some update to notice them I don't have any WUs left.

The Event Log says it is not requesting tasks as I have some tasks suspended via Manager. That is indeed correct, I always suspend all camb_legacy WUs. I don't want to waste my CPU time for applications they don't really need to only receive a few points.

So this is it. Question would be how to get rid of camb_legacy WUs. I am pool crunching, so just disabling those WUs in the account settings is not possible unfortunately.

When you suspend any task from the project,
Boinc don't send you new tasks anyway.

As maeax says, whenever you suspend a work unit, BOINC won't download new ones. That is not a problem with the project, just standard BOINC behavior. I don't know of a way to do what you want if you are in a pool.

Try to convince the pool to drop the legacy ones; they really are not used for much, as stated previously by the project admin some time ago.
