I can\'t find the thread any more, where you said you swichted on the reconnect every hour so I could not use this one.
Currently I have set burp to \"wont get new tasks\"(running a challenge).
But still every hour the client connects to burp:
Project Date Message
BURP 10/09/2008 13:39:15 Scheduler request succeeded: got 0 new tasks
BURP 10/09/2008 13:39:09 Sending scheduler request: Requested by project. Requesting 0 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks

Anything you can do about this?
(Actually every hour is not really that ofteen, but the clietn does not do this for other projects.)

Thanks

I\'m currently at the pan-galactic workshop, I\'ll give you a proper answer when I get home, sorry for the delay.

Yes, the \"reconnect every\" setting is indeed set to every hour. The client will connect back to the server to update its status. In the current BOINC client this happens even when set to \"Won\'t get new work\" because the client checks whether any old work is getting aborted from the server side.

Probably the old thread was this one?

Soory, but as far as I know some more projects have this switched on. But burp is the only one which does the reconnect.

Sorry dont think so.
Must be something where it was about getting no work because of too long reconnect times.
I think I found it.

Could you name the ones, please? I would have to look into that a bit I guess.

Ah, you are right.

I would need to test it, but I think I saw it with http://www.primegrid.com.
This will take some time.

I have been seeing this same thing, so I suspended the project as well as NNW, but it persists.
Isn\'t here a way to FIX the message that is recorded in my messaging queue so that it identifies itself as just a update check and not a lookup for work. I know that other projects have had custome messages in the past. But I don\'t remember what BOINC version I was running or which projects they were, so I am no help there. Sry.

Since this seems to annoy people I\'ve changed the connection interval to 10 hours rather than 1 hour until we can find out if there\'s a better solution.

The client simply connects back to ask the server if there\'s any important stuff that should be done (like aborting workunits etc.). You shouldn\'t worry too much about that since mostly nothing important has happened - it does not mean that the client is calling back for work (hence the 0 seconds of work text).
I do, however, agree that a more specific message in the log would have been nice.
