40 WU/day limit - what's the deal?
I a have nice little computer farm; one of my computers is an overclocked AM3 Sempron with a 550Ti GPU. For starters, BOINC client made a huge mistake while benchmarking the system; it continuously sends very little work and I have to manually update the connection with the server every day lest I run out of work - the computer is much, much faster than BOINC benchmarking would suggest.
Anyways, that's just a minor annoyance.
Today, however, I increased the "additional" WU cache to 10 days in BOINC client, hoping that the server would have some mercy, sending me more work units and saving me from having to manually update the client every afternoon (BOINC, for some reason, uploads the completed WUs but doesn't do the update/acknowledge part to the server automatically - or it waits for 12+ hours to establish a connection with the server, during which I run out of work).
This afternoon I was greeted with the message from the server; "exceeded daily quota of 40 WUs". Well I'm pretty darn sure I did less than 40 WUs on that computer on that day, so that left me puzzled. I'm just about to run out of GPU work units, so this is a bad scenario.
This is the computer in question:
Also, gamma-ray WUs take too long to crunch and return way too little credit for the processor time invested. Can something be done about that?
