hi

yesterday i updated boinc from 6.2.14 -> 6.4.5. so far, so good...
but why requests boinc now only one burp wu instead of two before the update (work only allowed for burp)? if i allow work for other projects i get 2 wus.

is there a new feature in boinc which results in this behavior?

could it be that boinc checks the memory requirement for the wus? so, if 2 wus need 1024mb (2x 512) and i have one gig ram then i will get only one wu?!

I think it\'s more likely that the client upgrade reset the benchmarks, which BOINC uses to determine how long your work will last. See if it goes back to normal after a day or two.
