When trying to get some work, CPDN says \"requesting 0 seonds of work, returning 0 results\" and downloads nothing.
I\'m also a member of SETI, LHC and Einstein - CPDN has 19.3% of alotted time.

BOINC requested 0 seconds of work, and that is what it got.
Basically, your computer has enough work to do from all the other projects you are running.

See the BOINC Wiki <a href=\"http://boinc-doc.net/boinc-wiki/index.php?title=Requesting_%27%28seconds%29%27_seconds_of_work%2C_returning_%27%28count%29%27_results\"> here,</a> about a third of the way down, starting with this heading:
Scheduler Request - 0 Seconds & 0 Results

I tried preventing the other projects from fetching work. Since I ddin\'t have any CPDN unit running, there came a time were nothing was undergoing calculations....so the system couldn\'t have possibly been overcomitted. Still, CPDN would ask for 0 secs of work...
What to do?

Thanks.

You can suspend all your other projects and reset/(detach/attach) CPDN
But if BOINC doesn\'t want to download new work by itself, it\'s possible that once you have your CPDN wu, BOINC enters in EDF mode (because it\'s overcommitted) and keeps on crunching the CPDN wu without switching to the other projects wus.

Won\'t detach/attach reset my credit?

detach/attach won\'t reset your credit, but it will treat you as a new computer on attach.
This is a last ditch measure.

Try a reboot first. (Suspend, exit, reboot.)
This will give BOINC a chance to get itself organised.

If this doesn\'t work, try a reset, which will kill all your current models, and download a new set.
You should be able to just reset cpdn, if you\'re running multiple projects.
