What's the max amount of pcs on a single user?

I've added a tower of Atomic Pis (18 units), and only half are showing results in Boinc Bam Stats.
They've all been added about 1 week ago, and all are having a working internet, correctly set up for boinc.

I'm wondering if I'm getting the credit for them?



I do have currently 2 other Ryzen systems running, 1 intel, and 1 ryzen and intel have been offline for a while.
I also have 8 ARM units crunching, and another 25 ARM units being offline.
I wonder if I exceeded the max amount of units under my name, as I'm also not seeing PPDs on the 8 ARM units showing...

BOINC has no limits on amount of computers on one user account.

If some don't show up on stats sites you have to check whether they are gathering credit, whether the project sends out the stats on those units and whether the stats site in question shows all correctly.
Projects and stats sites are separate entities, so you will have to ask them.
Please do not private message me for tech support, these will be ignored!

All the units are in boinc bam stats, like the picture shows.
All of the units run the same projects, yet only few of them get credit.

Don't most projects require 2 computers to get the same result before they get credit?
AND to get that result before some other computer?

Every project that I know of allows you (and provides tools for you to use) to inspect the outcome and final status of each task completed by each computer.

If the task is 'successful' (completes normally) and 'valid' (sufficiently accurate, when compared to other work), it will be awarded credit. If not, not.

Boinctui shows work was done.
They each run the Collatz on their GPUs.
Since those gpus are super slow, I would be surprised to find some results of Collatz not being validated within 48 hours!
Collatz usually is the first one to have their work validated.
Instead, now I see some hosts are getting a lot more points than the rest (almost 5-8x the points).
I think the points are accumulated to another host?

7 units still haven't received a single point.
I'm pretty sure it's a Bam stats issue on assigning hosts.

This is how it looks like now:

Why don't you check your hosts at the source instead of in a UI: https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/hosts_user.php?userid=1606659

7 units still haven't received a single point.
Just three: One, Two and Three.

I'm pretty sure it's a Bam stats issue on assigning hosts.
So what are you doing here then? We're in no way affiliated with BOINCstats or BAM!
If there is anything that should be fixed on BOINC its side it's best asked by the developer of BAM! as he knows what's what. So do go report it to him.

Seems like The Collatz has points assigned to all units.

No, Atom 6,7,8,10,12,13, and 19 don't show anything in BAM.

I don't know where there's a forum for BAM.
Just now do I figure out it's definitely a BAM issue.

Thanks!
Yes, only once I entered there, via the shoutbox.
I forwarded this forum thread on their forum.
Other users seem to have mentioned the same happened to their units.
