Is anybody experiencing (starting a few hours back) a problem with too many workunits downloaded (ie large queue)?

Nope, but then again, I keep my queue really low (I set the additional work buffer to 0.02 days).

No. My client just did a work request and got it's normal 1 task. In my preferences I have "Connect every 0 days" and "Additional cache = 0.05 days".

I have three hosts, all of them has more WUs in progress than 2 per GPU.
Host 72651 - 3 GPUs - 7 WUs in progress.
Host 76412 - 2 GPUs - 6 WUs in progress.
Host 97538 - 1 GPU - 3 WUs in progress.
This situation is persistent. When one of my host reports a finished (or failed) task, it receives a new WU, regardless of 2 per GPU (or more) already present.

While still receiving new WUs, I'm receiving these error messages also:

Yes, I set this host's buffer to two days and the host picked up 5 tasks, for a total of 8 with only 2 GPUs. I aborted 3 of the tasks and set my buffer back to .01 days.

Retvari, what is your work buffer set to?

My guess is that the new scheduler is more "responsive" to the work buffer setting that the old was. Those getting too many WUs can try reducing the work buffer.

As per other thread, please cancel all excess WUs.
