Einstein died again. Does that happen every weekend???

Sever Status shows work to send but I get nothing.

Electric bill: $1037. Computer costs: north of $100K. Value to science: Priceless.
There's nothing "spare" about distributed computing clients.

I don't think Einstein is

I don't think Einstein is dead now.  It certainly does not die every weekend.

Have you checked whether BOINC on your machine actually requested work?  what type?

All three of my most recent requests have gotten work, the most recent less than five minutes ago.

As you choose to hide your computers, I can't check the most recent request log for you.

That does not expose your

That does not expose your computer IDs.  If you wish them to be visible on the Einstein site, you can navigate on the Einstein web site while logged in to 

Account|Preferences|Privacy

and changed the answer for:
Do you consent to exporting your data to BOINC statistics aggregation Web sites?:
from No to Yes, then click on "save changes" at the bottom of the page.

Much better that you form the habit of checking the most recent request log yourself, if you are not already doing so.


The form of the URL is:



except that you must substitute your Host ID of interest for 10706295 in the above string


The lines which show that work of some type is being requested look a bit like this


2019-05-25 18:01:06.3796 [PID=1484 ]    [send] CPU: req 0.00 sec, 0.00 instances; est delay 0.00
2019-05-25 18:01:06.3796 [PID=1484 ]    [send] ATI: req 4170.81 sec, 0.00 instances; est delay 0.00

In this case, my preferences are set to exclude CPU work, so none is requested, though my machine is deemed capable.  (req 0.00)  On the other hand, my machine is detected as having an AMD GPU installed, and my preferences are set to request work for it, so by the old brand name of ATI, the second line shows a request.

Requesting is one thing, getting is another.  If this log shows a request but no work sent, usually there is one or more clue in subsequent lines.  Some of the clues are obvious, others less so.
