The client says: No new work, while BOINC runs only 30% on your PC. WU´s can´t get computed.
BOINC runs nearly at 100% on it, the data must be wrong.
I´ll add: NF@H is stopped for BURP. The one WU from 2044 will allready computed in 5 minutes, I hope I get new WU´s then.

Now it´s at 26,1%. :(
It´s NOT able to get work!

Can you fix it? I send an E-Mail to the dev_team, too.

Have you tried hitting "Reset" on the host's project tab? Also check that the settings allow it to fetch enough work.
Unless there's something weird going on with a host it will always be given a suitable workunit if it is idle and there is one to give.

Hi Aurel...
I bet you're turning off your computer every day for a couple of hours. This is probably the main reason why the message appears and the percentage goes down.
When you then have a lot of projects and probably more WUs running as your cache allows this message will automatically pop up.
There are some tricks to undergo this and get other work (e.g. like pausing running WUs) meanwhile but sometimes even that doesn't help the scheduler when you're overloaded with (other) work.
Since this is a scheduler thing Janus can't do much about it, you either have to let BOINC (and your computer) run 24/7 or cancel some undone work...
