New weather prediction project from IBM.

Same here. As the project appears to be new, there are probably some kinks that need to be worked out (hopefully soon!)

No doubt, but right after the above failure, it downloaded another

so now WCG will have to wait a while.

The more research the better.

From my understanding there are a couple of things creating the scarcity of WU.
1. The normal somewhat limited number of WU common with a project start,
2. To some degree the new WU are created based on the information returned by prior WU.
3. The results are huge and it take time and space to process the results, limiting the throughput.
4. WCG has a large pool of crunchers so new WU get snapped up quickly.

I've gotten 10 WU ( 6 completed and returned ) across 2 machines, allocating only 3 CPUs (total) to the project. To do that I've had to set something up to poll for work every 10 minutes. I get enough work to keep the 3 CPUs busy with the project most of the time. Someday I'll make the time to write a script (Windows OS) to only poll when I need the work.
