So far, so bad. I'll keep trying a few different combinations.

This is a combination I had not tried: only having intel GPU enabled, not CPU or NVIDIA or AMD/ATI.

And we have lift-off:

Did you only get tasks when the CPU was enabled?

Or maybe not:

02/05/2021 16:50:17 | World Community Grid | No tasks are available for the applications you have selected.

I would take this as the case you mentioned before. Meaning where the scheduler happens to not have work(for the CPU or intel GPU with whichever wcg projects are selected) at the precise time when you requested it.
I think that is from sched_send.cpp L1295 in the "if client asked for work and we're not sending any, explain why" section:
        if (g_wreq->no_allowed_apps_available) {
            g_reply->insert_message(
                _("No tasks are available for the applications you have selected."),
                "low"
            );

I could be following the code wrong, but I think that both of those can be true.
The computer has reached a limit on tasks in progress is from either the per host or per processor type being exceeded
sched_types.h
    bool max_jobs_exceeded() {
        if (max_jobs_on_host_exceeded) return true;
        for (int i=0; i<NPROC_TYPES; i++) {
            if (max_jobs_on_host_proc_type_exceeded[i]) return true;
        }
        return false;
    }


No tasks available - Either it was not ready or it searched through wu_results and did not find any available.
shmem.cpp L328
// see if there's any work.
// If there is, reserve it for this process
// (if we don't do this, there's a race condition where lots
// of servers try to get a single work item)
//
bool SCHED_SHMEM::no_work(int pid) {
    if (!ready) return true;
    for (int i=0; i<max_wu_results; i++) {
        if (wu_results[i].state == WR_STATE_PRESENT) {
            wu_results[i].state = pid;
            return false;
        }
    }
    return true;

Message 104260 - Posted: 2 May 2021, 17:18:16 UTC - in response to Message 104259.  

The 'school' venue is one I usually reserve for an Android tablet to run CPU tasks. It was set to maximum 2 tasks in WCG device profiles, but by 17:21 I'd realised that and removed the restriction. The only limit I can think of after that would be 'four per (intel) GPU', which has never been mentioned, and I think I've seen exceeded on 'big' machines.

By the way, I noticed something while looking in sched_send.cpp. Take a look and see if what you think.
This is from sched_send.cpp L1645
I apologize for the formatting, I chose quote so I could bold where the order of send_work_{old | locality} is in relation to the rest.
This part seems fine:
if (drand() < config.locality_scheduler_fraction) {
if (config.debug_locality) {
log_messages.printf(MSG_NORMAL,
"[mixed] sending locality work first\n"
);
}
send_work_locality();

// save 'insufficient' flags from the first scheduler
bool disk_insufficient = g_wreq->disk.insufficient;
bool speed_insufficient = g_wreq->speed.insufficient;
bool mem_insufficient = g_wreq->mem.insufficient;
bool no_allowed_apps_available = g_wreq->no_allowed_apps_available;

// reset 'insufficient' flags for the second scheduler
g_wreq->disk.insufficient = false;
g_wreq->speed.insufficient = false;
g_wreq->mem.insufficient = false;
g_wreq->no_allowed_apps_available = false;

if (config.debug_locality) {
log_messages.printf(MSG_NORMAL,
"[mixed] sending non-locality work second\n"
);
}
send_work_old();

// recombine the 'insufficient' flags from the two schedulers
g_wreq->disk.insufficient = g_wreq->disk.insufficient && disk_insufficient;
g_wreq->speed.insufficient = g_wreq->speed.insufficient && speed_insufficient;
g_wreq->mem.insufficient = g_wreq->mem.insufficient && mem_insufficient;
g_wreq->no_allowed_apps_available = g_wreq->no_allowed_apps_available && no_allowed_apps_available;

}

However this one does not:
else {
if (config.debug_locality) {
log_messages.printf(MSG_NORMAL,
"[mixed] sending non-locality work first\n"
);
}

// save 'insufficient' flags from the first scheduler
bool disk_insufficient = g_wreq->disk.insufficient;
bool speed_insufficient = g_wreq->speed.insufficient;
bool mem_insufficient = g_wreq->mem.insufficient;
bool no_allowed_apps_available = g_wreq->no_allowed_apps_available;

// reset 'insufficient' flags for the second scheduler
g_wreq->disk.insufficient = false;
g_wreq->speed.insufficient = false;
g_wreq->mem.insufficient = false;
g_wreq->no_allowed_apps_available = false;

send_work_old();
if (config.debug_locality) {
log_messages.printf(MSG_NORMAL,
"[mixed] sending locality work second\n"
);
}
send_work_locality();

// recombine the 'insufficient' flags from the two schedulers
g_wreq->disk.insufficient = g_wreq->disk.insufficient && disk_insufficient;
g_wreq->speed.insufficient = g_wreq->speed.insufficient && speed_insufficient;
g_wreq->mem.insufficient = g_wreq->mem.insufficient && mem_insufficient;
g_wreq->no_allowed_apps_available = g_wreq->no_allowed_apps_available && no_allowed_apps_available;

}

Notice how it says it is saving the 'insufficient' flags from the first scheduler, but it calls the first scheduler after it saves the flags.
I am not saying it is affecting us in this case as I do not know how config.locality_scheduling, config.sched_old, or config.locality_scheduler_fraction are set. Also if we do get to this section, it appears that the effect would be to always have the 'insufficient' flags as false when the drand() sends it to the second part. Thus making the "No tasks are available for the applications you have selected." not show up even if it should be true.

I was mistaken before. This can be from the config.xml limits or the user's project preferences.

        if (max_jobs_on_host_exceeded) return true;

        }
        return false;
    }

sched_send.cpp L783
    // check user-specified project prefs limit on # of jobs in progress
    //
    int mj = g_wreq->project_prefs.max_jobs_in_progress;
    if (mj && config.max_jobs_in_progress.project_limits.total.njobs >= mj) {
        if (config.debug_send) {
            log_messages.printf(MSG_NORMAL,
                "[send] user project preferences job limit exceeded\n"
            );
        }
        g_wreq->max_jobs_on_host_exceeded = true;
        return false;
    }
<snip>
    if (!some_type_allowed) {
        if (config.debug_send) {
            log_messages.printf(MSG_NORMAL,
                "[send] config.xml max_jobs_in_progress limit exceeded\n"
            );
        }
        g_wreq->max_jobs_on_host_exceeded = true;
        return false;
    }

Yes, I have gotten a lot more than four intel gpu units. When I set the limit to 50 and did any of the 3 things I mentioned earlier to get intel gpu tasks, it kept getting them until it got to the limit of 50 that I set in the wcg profile.
(I have seen it get much higher, but I have avoided trying to figure out why as it is harder to chase 2 potential scheduler issues at the same time).

Happy May Day! :)

If the end of work is that soon, is it time to post about the intel_gpu issue in the WCG forums? Or did you want to do some more testing first?

Indeed. I was caught out initially (I don't usually use project preferences for that), but I'd corrected it by then - and the limit is still being applied. First iGPU task still has 45 minutes to run - we'll see what happens then.

It's not the end of work, just the end of the stress test. Then back to a trickle of 2,000 every half hour, or whatever it was. I'd imagine they'd want to process the resulting server load issues first: I'd imagine it'll be better to wait until we have a constructive diagnosis to pass on.

Sorry, I meant the end of near constant work availability. Having work constantly available enabled me to run tests and replicate the issue on command repeatedly.

We have scripts for that now!. Also, I converted one of the early Betas to run offline at a command prompt, which removed the dependency on new work.

Now I'm up to five iGPU tasks:

02/05/2021 19:06:44 | World Community Grid | Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.

02/05/2021 19:06:45 | World Community Grid | [sched_op] estimated total Intel GPU task duration: 2559 seconds
Though the first is due to finish in about five minutes.

Edit - iGPU completed and reported, and I got my third CPU task in return. No configuration changes in the last two hours.

This seems to be behaving as expected - CPU and Intel GPU computing is enabled and you get both CPU and Intel GPU. Since I set my test machine back to stock boinc this morning(almost 13 hours ago) it has not gotten Intel GPU tasks.

Are you running any sort of 'retry' automation? Otherwise, the backoffs will cut you down to very few requests.

Affirmative, otherwise the backoffs would be even worse with the extra under sea cables I have to go through.

I restarted it into the mode where is sets the work_req to the highest req_secs (without it being anonymous platform)
Here are the last 2 requests before restarting it:
