I run 3 AMD cards.  All i am getting for work is MDFW O3 even though they are the only work unit  i do NOT have  selected in "Applications."

In fear of getting no work i DO have "Allow non-perferred apps if not work for selected app......"  selected as YES.

am i missing something?  according to grafana there should be a lot of work available.

You've received new GRP work

You've received new GRP work as recently as May 3.  My AMD hosts have continued to get work, up through May 5.  I suspect your setting for non-preferred work means your machine is not patient when a request happens to hit the buffer empty, but that perhaps recently that has happened more frequently.

Try turning the non-preferred option off.

Yes turn off letting Einstein choose which task to send you, if you look at the Server Status page you can see that the tasks you are getting still has almost 1 million ready to send out while most of the other types of tasks have fewer to send out, the one exception is the GRP#1 tasks which has 1.6 million tasks to send out.

You are running Boinc version 7.20,2 meaning around the 85% complete number you should get a new task to run if you run with a zero cache or if you have a larger cache, or non zero resource share, you will get some tasks and then as you send one back you will get a new task to replace it.
