OUT OF WORK again, no new tasks
Why does this upset people? We're keeping up with the workload, this is good. Join a backup project.

Who is upset? No one looks upset ;)

Every time there's no work left, people come in here and complain, and sometimes in capitals! If there was a fault to report perhaps, but we should all know by now the work is not enough for us to run every day.

Or is it? I notice the last addition to the work to send was much larger.

Well, I still believe using capital letters is just a way to say that out loud and nothing more.
And they are always been heard. As we are always aware of the fact that there is a gap again.

When you do science you have to be patient and you can always expect unexpected. ;)

Cheers!

Yes I am patient, but it appears the others are not.

So did you get another data source? This graph (top left) shows you input a lot more data this time:

Yes, I changed it to one month, this shows in the top left graph the last addition to work was much larger. I was wondering if he had another data source, so in future the work will not run out.

I'm not aware of new observatory been joined to the data gathering process. It's more likely one of them just have sent bigger patch of data, but can't say for sure.

I see from zooming out to a year, it has happened before. I can't understand why there was a gap after it instead of before though. A delay in data could result in double the batch size. But a delay after it?!

This is to explain how(often)/when the new WUs are added. The units are created and added "manually" when I see that the number of tasks ready to send is small. The number of new units is not strictly defined; it varies from a couple of hundreds of thousands to millions. I know that it's not very smart to do it this way, but the advantage is that we have full control over what and when is added, and we are flexible in prioritizing some data sets if needed. The disadvantage is that there is sometimes a gap in the flow of tasks that some of you complain about and that gave name to this thread. I will try to minimize the time when the queue is empty, but the "out of work" situation will inevitably happen from to time, sorry. In such a situation, I kindly ask for your patience.
