I'm running Boinc everyday for several hours. And everyday I get the same message:

Sending scheduler request. Requesting 317 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks

Scheduler request succeeded: got 0 new tasks

And this for months. But do I complain? No! I just want to know why I get this message.

Best regards.

Hello Michael!

We're all in the same boat - so to speak. ;-)
The Pirate ship sails only occasionally when there's something worth robbing.... errrm, testing.
But I agreee that the calm has been lasting for quite a long time now!

Cheers, Cori :-)

I also have this problem. I have not had any work in several months. I am running an advanced version of BOINC as I am an Alpha tester.

Pirates is a BOINC test-bed that has very little work. It'll only have work when Eric is testing something. You can check the server status to see if the Make_work app is on. If it isn't running, there's no work.

Hello Robert! Nice to see you! :-)

No, I haven't crunched Beta for months now. Too many other exciting projects. ;-)
