Been running over a year with no problems. Now all of the sudden I see I'm only running 1 task! Normal settings are 50%CPU, so normally 4 tasks on my i7 4771. I try and force sync and nothing. I reboot and it's still running 1 task. So I reset the Project itself... This time I get 3 new tasks. I change CPU to 100%CPU and still just 3 tasks. Can't get it back to 4 tasks using 50%CPU.

Thoughts?

If you only have three tasks after the project reset, then that's as many as she can run. You'll have to wait for a next scheduler contact/request for work.
Why not pass by on https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=8600 to see what more information we'd like to be able to help better.

Listening hard and none echoed back from the Grey zone, but, the event log since your reboot could tell us a few things. Post a copy.
