Message 109017 - Posted: 6 Jul 2022, 22:28:50 UTC

Hello, running:
Boinc Manager 7.16.11
OS: Win10 64-bit
Hardware: AMD 3800x, 32-GB RAM, RTX 2070 Super
3 Projects: Rosetta@home, SETI@home, World Community Grid

I've noticed my computer is not processing projects lately. I was just a member of SETI and WCG. I think SETI has paused work but WCG should be active. I added Rosetta but after a couple days, no work is being performed by my computer. CPU and GPU utilization are both minimal.
What can I do to troubleshoot why I am not processing?

Thanks in advance

SETI is more than paused, it will never return again. You might as well remove SETI from your BOINC. WCG has been shut down since late in February, due to a migration from IBM to Krembil in Canada.
It's close to being back again, but for now you should not expect any work from WCG. If you see a message from WCG in the BOINC event log that says:
"This project is using an old URL. When convenient, remove the project, then add https://master.worldcommunitygrid.org/" IGNORE that message, and do NOT do what it says.

When it comes to work from Rosetta, I do not know if there are any issues with that project, since I have never participated in Rosetta. I'm sure someone with experience of Rosetta will come here and answer your question about possible Rosetta issues.

There's a thread here: Rosetta@home down? about Rosetta, which says you need VirtualBox.

I had read that WCG was changing servers but didn't realize they were totally down. Yeah, SETI is dead. I started running that back in 1998 or 1999, never found ET.
I see a follow up reply that Rosetta requires Virtual Box. I just need to pick some additional projects to work towards.
Thank you for the reply.
