I'm experiencing a glitch: the resources allocated to Collatz in the project preference do not match to the resources allocated in the boinc manager.
I tried updating, and while other projects correctly reflect the changes, collatz does not.
I'm on boinc 7.8.3 and collatz_sieve for nvidia gpu.

Still: I set the resource share to 100 in Collatz project preference webpage, and can't get anything else than 30 in the boinc manager overview for Collatz

And did you set all other projects to 0 so that you don't get work from them? If you have three projects and all set at 100, then Collatz will only get 1/3 of the resource share.

Have you detached from the collatz project and then re-attached? It won't download work if you haven't done that since the server was replaced.

Turn on sched_op_debug in the options so you can actually see what BOINC is really doing when it requests work. The generic message is worthless for debugging issues.

Everything works as it should and I've got plenty of WU.
The only issue I have is that I set 100 as resource share in project preference (should be a grand total of 114), and I only get 30 which equals to 68.18% of the total resources (grand total of 44).
