The scheduler reply looks like it is requesting work for the cpu and Apple M1. Not familiar with Mac M1 but I suspect the Apple M1 identifier is referencing the igpu on the chip.

If this is the case and supported by the identification of Apple M1 in the OpenCL detection, then the reason you got no work from the Milkyway project at least is that project has discontinued support for all gpus. Only cpus supported now.

I don't know if Rosetta has a Mac M1 gpu application or if it was just out of work. Milkyway does not support the Mac M1 for cpu applications.

Keith, thanks for the MilkyWay clue.

Turns out that there was really a lack of Rosetta work to serve, I hadn't seen
one last that long, it is working now.
